i am just finding it a mare to overclock, i have got it running at 4.7, but only when its on load, so thats good i guess, but my ramm is only running at 1066 MHZ, the ram i have is

http://www.mushkin.c...ine/996996.aspx

Type: DDR3
Voltage: 1.65V
Speed Spec: PC3-17000
Frequency: 2133MHz


Capacity
Kit Type: Dual Kit
Module Size: 4GB


Timings
tCL: 9
tRCD: 11
tRP: 10
tRAS: 28


Cooling Technology
Heatsink: FrostByte



so they should be running at 2133MHZ, so when i select it in the bios it says its running at that speed, but when i check CPU-z its running at 1066 :(, not sure if you have overclocked it, but does yours only run at your overclock when its on load, rather than a perm overclock?

any chance of sharing your settings to see if it makes any difference to mine?

thanks.
