Considering your 955 has a multi of 16, I'm guessing what they showed in the manual is just for reference. Unless you plan on overclocking the CPU I would just leave it on auto. If you do plan on overclocking leave the "CPU/HT Reference Clock" at 200, and bump up the CPU Ratio by .5 at a time, testing for stability till it either crashes or won't load Windows. Then bump up the vcore a bit and try again and see if stable, and if not go back to the last stable multi.

Yes I bumped up 1st time to 3.70Ghz = Worked perfect, then next time I tried to 4.00GHz = Crashed after a while when loaded Windows (On the Desktop).. I've set HT to 200 but after restart it went on 210 and RAM from 1600MHz to 1680Mhz is it OK ? Then another thing, where I should bump up the vcore ? is it the one which is on Auto now ? or it's voltage....core something ?

Lookin' good! Here's one stability test IntelBurnTest v2.3 download from Guru3D.com which stresses CPU and some RAM. Don't get alarmed if you get the BSOD when running it, reboot, readjust settings and try again.
And CPUz to check your settings. CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting
