Google it and you may find what I have. I remember there was even a video about this on Youtube.

Must say that i love your CPU (its the same as my old CPU and it did a hell of a good job )

But i will try and look for these tweaks

Heh heh, cool. Out of curiosity, I know each individual chip is different, but did you overclock it? If so, by how much?

The highest stable I can get mine is in my specs. Anything higher causes crashes. More frequently the farther up in clock speed that I deviate. It's not the memory doing it either I don't think. Crashes happen exactly same with different brand of memory. And now I'm using OCZ performance memory.

I can get Windows to boot at like 3.65 gHz but that's all it will do for the most part. Anything else, once in Windows, will reboot the system.

I am on stock cooling though.

I had a fail power supply so i only had it overclocked like 10% any higher resulted in the CPU Fan run at 100% and the CPU not doing anything (Black screen)

Had to reset the bios to get my computer back to work XD
