K, I do not know if this changes your opinion but I uped the multi to 235 to get to 3.5Ghz, core temp after 6 hours of gaming is at 55.5 steady, I do not think that is high, I read anything over 60 celcius is bad, also I put my ram timings in auto to see what would happen and it put them back at stock 9, just curisous what you guys would run it at, they have hearshrinks, and are mid level G.skill ddr3.
What about this, I just set it up and might be out of left field, but it allowed me to get the settings to a more "standard" rate, I took the multiplier down to 14 since I cant go up, and then put the Bus at 250, so now it is a perfect 3.5mhz. Then this allowed me to set the ram for 1333mhz and put my timings at 8-8-8-24-32, FSB is 2000, core voltage is still at 1.44 I am going to try and take that down some maybe. What do u think?
your original OC was good, I had my 945 stable at very similar settings. if everything was stable at 3.4, RAM@1532 I think that is a very reasonable OC for that chip. I wasn't able to get mine above 3.5GHz anyway, plus it was not at rock solid stable as my 3.4OC
