I finally figured out my OC...im new to this...but it was really quite simple thanks to the guide on here...Just wanted to get some advice on my specs and see if it all looks ok...My room temp is around 70 F....Tested on intel burn max stress for 12 passes. Tested on Prime 95 for 10 hours. Everything was solid no errors or over heating.
My temps (Real Temp) Full Load Core1- 63 Core 2 -58 Core 3 -57 Core 4 -59
Idle Temps CPU - 35 34 36 32
North bridge Temp is at 47 max under full load
North Bridge Idle 32
Bclock- 190 x 20
Memory - 2:8
Dimm V - 1.5
Everything else what left at auto...the main question i have is the timings come out at 11 11 11 28. The RAM says 8 8 8 24...should I change it to that...or will it become unstable? Also do my temps and voltages sound normal? Also, just want to make sure this isn't adding to much strain to my componets...I just wanted a 3.6 - 3.8 OC to keep temps low and I need this to last as long as possible...these settings wont burn it out in a year will they? My computer runs about 16 hours a day if not 24. I do a lot of rendering and 3D work along with games. Thanks for the advice
I had it OC'ed a little diff a few days ago at 180 x 21 with vcore at 1.21875 but I wanted my RAM higher...RAM was at 2:8 and timings were 9 9 9 24. Temps were maybe 2 degrees lower....everything else was the same....what would be the better configuration?...I ran the same test on this setup and it passed 100% stable at least to my standards.....intel burn 12 passes max stress and prime 95 for 10+hours

Lol, you will be fine at that speed dude. You hardley ever need it to go faster than4ghz anyway.
Do you have any opinion on whats better...a higher mem freq or tighter timings? I found mixed feelings when I searched for this...honeslty I don't notice a difference using my comp...just curious if you had any idea what the better setting would be

Yes, by all means set your timings manually to what it says "on da box:"
but I wanted my RAM higher...RAM was at 2:8 and timings were 9 9 9 24
180 x 10 = 1800 MHz RAM Speed
190 x 10 = 1900 MHz RAM Speed
if I read your post correctly, your RAM is only rated for 1600. I'd put the mem multiplier back to 8 and lower your timings back to rated values.....
My RAM is set 2:8 but bclock is at 190 x 20 instead of 180 x 21....making the ram 1520 mhz instead of 1440 mhz.. right?? but at the 1440mhz auto timings are at 9 9 9 24 and at the 1550 mhz timings are at 11 11 11 28. If I set the timings to 8 8 8 24 under any circumstance its no longer stable...dimm voltage is at 1.5. Im scared to take it up to 1.65 because i dont want to fry anything...and the EVGA classi adds and extra .04v to the DIMM from what i'm told....so I am trying to decide between those two configurations....
