  1. I just reworded the whole post if anyone could answer my questions that would be a great help.

    My goal is to have my CPU overclocked to 3800mhz, my ram to 1600mhz (or as close to it as possible). I just do not want it to overheart or any other issues
  2. Mobo - Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3
    CPU - AMD Phenom II X4 960T Black Edition
    RAM - Corsair Dominator 1866 (2x2Gb) & Mushkin Blackline 1600 (2x2Gb)

    My setting......
    CPU - 4.07Ghz (4070Mhz)
    CPU FSB - 220
    CPU Mutiplyer - 18.5
    Memory Clock - x 6.66 = 1760Mhz
    CPU Voltage & Vcore - 1.4
    Memory Voltage - 1.65

    Runs fine and has lots of head room. A friend has an Asus ROG board and has hit 4.2 With the CPU.
    I think you can reach this easly.
  3. How hot does it get running games or prime95? Mine gets around 67% at peeks after running prime95 for a while.

    The cpu fan I have is.
