How does this look? Seems to be stable... Any ideas on what to do to get it a little higher?

So my temps are ok then??? I'll give a try and crank it up a little...

Ok, I'm at 3.8ghz, 1.31v, my temp went up to 50C, and just scored 14262 on 3dmark... I'll post pics later... Anything I can do on my memory to speed myself up some more?

edit
After messing with it for awhile.. I am at 4.1ghz, 1.39v, my temps are in the high 50's and I scored 15229 on 3dmark06 @ 1280x1024.. I had to loosen my timmings like someone suggested. They are at 5-5-5-12... I plan on dropping my volts down a bit to bring the temp down...

3dMark06 Score

This is driving me nuts... I've been able to hit 4.1 which is past my goal of 4ghz. Happy there. Trying to make it stable is driving me crazy...

I run Orthos and I get a fatal error anywhere from 10 secs to 2 mins in. I crank up the V so I'm at 1.39 - 1.42V and it seems to help alot but the temp is crazy. They range 60c - 70c and sometimes 80c... Am I gonna burn up my chip? As a result I dropped the voltage back down to 1.34-1.36v which seems to help with the idle temps but can't stabalize with Orthos even then the temp spikes...

My ram is set 1:1 and is running I believe 333/800 (864mhz) with timings of 5-5-5-12. Not sure what else to do here.

What other voltage adjustments can be made? The DFI DK x38 tr2 board and it's genie bios has so many different options in it. I would think that there is something in there I can do...

Here is my superpi screenshot that shows my settings.


Help!!!!!
