The ram I am running now the stability changes with every bios update. One update I can run 4:5 then the next I can only run 3:4 its all over the place with the Bios's. I will just have to wait. I did order some G-Skill (I still laugh at that name) 2x2 8500 and vista. There has been good feedback with G-Skill and my board so maybe I will get to 450. People are hitting different walls on the FSB depending on the board and bios.

I just won a bid on ebay and paid £350 for a QX9650 which is the same as a QX9550 but after seeing this i think i might very well be able to hit 4GHz now. I am so gidy going from a cheapo E4300 to a QX9650 and not having to run the mobo temps through the roof on my nForce 750i with FSB overclocking. So you guys are using around 1.35-1.4v to hit 4GHz atleast i know what to aim for now

Just a quick question the eailest stepping for these was C0 wasn't it?

Temps seems a little screwed, mobo temp and overall CPU temp. With the increased voltage your board temp should be higher then 26c.
