AMD X4 965 at 4.0 ghz

Hey guys this is my setup I would like some suggestions and help to ensure I am doing everything correctly.

EVGA 012-P3-1470-AR GeForce GTX 470
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3
AMD Phenom
II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz
Antec Nine Hundred Two Black Steel ATX Mid Tower
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus

In the bios I have the following set.

CPU Vcore = Auto
Advanced Clock Calibration= Auto ( Should this be All cores)?
Unleashing Mode = Enabled
Processor Frequency Multiplier= 20X @ 4.0ghz
BUs Speed = Default at 200mhz

My memory I haven't touched. I have been reading you need to set this but I am not sure what to set the timing seems to be st to default already 9-9-9-24. The frequency in Overdrive says 667, is that right for DDR3? Also command rate is set to 1T. Any help with the ram settings would be great and any other suggestions in general.

I have been running prime95 for about an hour. Vcore flucuates between 1.45 and 1.50. The max temp is 53C.

Thanks for the help.

  1. you are just fine if your cpu is stable your are fine, i would just type in the bios the exact values, try 1.45v if it crashes go for 1.5v your temps are great,

    about the ram , go in bios and set to 800mhz ( 1600mhz), if thats your ram stock settings, and ajust the timmings acoording to the SPD in your ram, read it using CPU-Z

    Advanced clock calibration, and unleashing mode, will not make any difference since your cpu is naturally a quad core.

    nice overclock man
