Lookin' good man.  What did you use to test CPU stability?  Prime? CPU Burn-In?

orthos (prime for dual-cores) to check cpu/ram accuracy
coredamage to check max temperatures (hits max temps on a cpu in less than 2mins)
did benchmarking with 3dmark vantage and 3dmark06
also did a stability test with everest ultimate edition. Smiley

everything appeared stable for awhile, but i ran into some issues with 4-4-4-15 timings on the ram with the 20% OC, so i dropped back to 5-5-5-15 and things seem okay again.  also upped my ht link back to 1ghz base (puts it to 1200-ish mhz)

You know, it's funny you should mention the timings on that RAM.  I've run into the same thing just recently, with that exact set of RAM, and if you look on the OCZ forums, so have a lot of other people.  One of the OCZ techs mentioned setting the RAM voltage to 2.0V if you can.

lol, my ram voltage is set high enough that it currently voids warranty Wink

re: 2.125 (warranty = 1.9v - 2.1v).  these sticks (rev1) used to run at 2.3v, but i'm not crazy enough to overvolt that much.  I mean my cooling is definately good, but i'm only up for taking small chances on the ram till i can afford the mushkin stuffs Tongue

i couldn't get the ram stable at 4-4-4-15 with my overclock, hence the 5-5-5-15 / 2.125v (did the .25 overvolt just to make sure i wasn't going to have stability issues.. i tested the stock timings with it first but wasn't quite enough and instead of raising the voltage a little more, i opted for loose timings lol.)  it still runs quick as heck because its running at 960mhz instead of 800mhz Smiley
