hardware
MB - Asrock X58 Extreme
Processor - i7 920 D0
Ram - G.SKILL Trident 6GB 2000 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Target Processor Speed - 3.6-4.0 (3.6 preferred) ghz
Target RAM Speed - 2000 9-9-9-24

I am unable to get the ram run at the specified settings when using the XMP profile.
What else do I need to change besides the uncore? (need to know which voltages / safe ranges)

Current Settings - Stable - 3.6ghz - RAM at 800mHz
BCLK 180
CPU Voltage - 1.25
Memory Voltage - 1.64v
Uncore - 3200
Memory Speed - 800 (1600)
All other settings are [Auto] if not listed.

you can look here http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/253365-29-core-overcl...
it's a pretty good overclocking guide.
and then read this for your temperatures guide http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/221745-29-sticky-core...

*You will want to keep the side panel off of your pc case while tuning your bios. This will make it easier to clear cmos after a failed overclock.

XMP profile is not a good idea #in my opinion (personal choice, i'm not a pro)
manually setting timings 9-9-9-24 and rest on auto in memory section of bios might have best results.

**your G.SKILL Trident 6GB 2000 voltage is 1.6v
do not go above that.

There is almost NO reason whatsoever to run at higher ram speeds. It offers NO performance improvements,
