CPU-Z link for all the specs I have there, any ideas on how to acchieve better performance out of my hardware? bit confused at my ram/speed + timings atm.

Fully watercooled pc, running at 35C atm, full load. Lots of headroom available :D

that 965 is looking pretty good m8, you should hit 4ghz with ease judging by your voltages @ the mo,

try oc'in the cpu by just upping the multiplier, this way your ram and n/b won't be oc'ed @ the same time allowing you to concentrate on just oc'in your cpu for now, when upping the cpu volts i found it best to up the cpu voltage not the cpu vdd voltage like others have adviced, the cpu vdd voltage is for fine tuning the cpu voltage but i found that it caused instability more than anything.

as for your ram it all depends on how good your imc is as well as your ram, if you've got a good imc then you should be able to hit 1800mhz with tightish timings with your nb around 2600- 2800mhz,
as for adjusting your ram just up the fsb/dram ratio till you have the frequency that you want, as for voltages your going to need to up the dram voltage a couple of knotches above the rated volts, you will also need to up the cpu/nb voltage a little as this will help stabililise your imc and help with oc'in your ram aswell as your nb.

try these setting's and see how you get on,

cpu@ 200 x 20- 1.45v (4ghz) if it's prime stable then try dropping v's down. or keep pushing depending on temps.
cpu/nb@ 2600mhz - nb volts 1.25v / cpu/nb volts 1.3volts. upping cpu/nb volts will drop added heat into the cpu so keep an eye on temps.
ram@ 1600mhz - with rated timings - dram volts a couple of knotches above rated.
ht@ 2000mhz

you should be able to run @ the above settings but you may need to up volts where needed. good luck.

Will have a crack at that in a bit.

At 4Ghz now, still need to sort out the ram though... didn't boot last time.

looking good but i'd try just upping the multi and see how that goes, by using the multi you should be able to drop your volts a little + upping the fsb won't yield better performance,
i found that i needed more volts when oc'in via the fsb with my 965.

also whats your nb @?.

also the imc is rated @ 1333mhz so anything over that on your ram is classed as oc'in so you could try dropping your ram to 1333mhz @ rated timing's for now and see if that stabilizes your oc,

also with my gd70 it didnt like cold booting if the nb was over 2600mhz, they may have sorted it by now in one of the latest bios's but i'm not sure, you may have to find that out.

Ooh, sounds like a few bits to sort then. Got my ram in the blue slots atm, no real need to up the cpu speed now, 4ghz is ample for me. Will want to increase the ram speed though.

I'd also recommend disabling spread spectrum. I got an extra 80MHz from my old San Diego when I realised I'd forgotten to turn it off.

CPU at 4.2GHZ 24/7 now :D

increased loading speeds a fair bit, trying to keep the voltages low though. will post what I'm running at.

RAM tightening is the next step!
