Thanks! And I've done 3GHz (3.02
) before, and it's actually pretty stable as far as internet usage goes. I even got it CPU-Z verified. It's not quite as bad as D-Lew made it out to be.
The problem is: SuperPi doesn't think it's stable. I get "Not exact in round" errors within a second of starting up the 1M test. I haven't tested games @ 3GHz yet; may do that soon.

Haha, actually it didn't! It was very, very stable there because of the massive voltage I believe. I also upped the RAM voltage to 2.85.
EDIT: Approaching the sub-29 mark now.
Just fooled around with the in-depth RAM settings some. Makes no difference in the real world, but it really shows in the synthetic benchies!
Also, anyone know what "DRAM Idle Timer" is? I didn't see anything like that in the BIOS, and 16 clocks seems awfully high. But since I don't know what it is, it probably won't even do anything if I change it; that is, if I figure out how to.
