    You didn't list your RAM timings and speed. With decent RAM, and good case flow you "might" get 4.0-4.2GHz with stock cooling. With high-end air you might get 4.2-4.3GHz. With water you could maybe hit 4.5-4.6GHz. GL :)
  2. With the stock fan then set the ram to 400 and bus speed to 960. Increase voltage to 1.4 and FSB increase +.3volts. That should get you 3.840Ghz or 20% overclocking stable and reasonable temps. If you want to go higher then get a better cooling.
  3. got my 950 to 4.08 no probs using a thermaltake typhoon cooler
  4. Keep us informed on your successes. I know that i'd like to hear what you get out of it. GL :)
