try using 15 x 267 @1.45V thats what i got stable, i also have that chip on the 880G platform, and like pretty much all K10 chips it won't be stable much past 4GHz... and i cant get my ram stable past its stock 1600MHz

Soooooo sorry I haven't been on in quite a while :(  I had uni exams :p 


The maximum I could get stable was 3712Mhz :( 


I tried the settings you told me to..... It came up to 4004 Mhz... I think that my PC would *BOOM* 8D

Yeah... Not too excited for that to happen... tuition fees are already a bitch :p 

Also, how do I increase the core voltage to 1.45V like you said to?

Mine is at 1.392V according to CPU-Z :D

I'm not sure what cooler I have :p  It's just 3 fans :3

Well, I tried with the voltage at 1.45, and x15 4012Mhz

My computer refused to start. Even if I clocked it at 1000Mhz it would freeze at the "Starting Windows" screen [I have Win7] after the 4 balls we about to join together, and then restart with no prompt at all. I'm scared to overclock it now, I loaded the fail-safe settings from the BIOS and it works now :S

Can I still overclock? Before this incident, I had 3.712Ghz stable, now I'm stuck cause I'm too scared I won't be able to start it again :( 

Although, it asked me if I wanted to enable some hotplug or something with SATA ?_? I put no this time, and the PC started up fine :S

pllleeeasse help me ;3

I also noticed when I got my computer to run again, that some programs (OCCTP,CPU-Z,Core-Temp) were missing :/

UPDATE : Yes, I'm able to get it to 3.7Ghz. I guess the SATA hotplug or something about changing it to AICHS or something should be disabled :p 

Thanks a LOT for your answers <33
