    With HT enables you will feel your system run smoother than without it even you don't have multiple thread apps however it runs hotter than it's disabled.

    You need around somewhere 1.30ish volt or higher for 4.2Ghz.

    Do you have Turbo mode on or disable?

    If you're going for higher clock speed then distable the Turbo or you will be have a hard time to get it stables.

    You do know tighter timings perform better than higher one. So you can play around with your RAM, benchmark it to see which settings you like; such as run it at stock speed or run it a little bit slower with tighter timings.

    I went back to my original oc 170bclock with 23 multi
    I changed the ram timings to 8-8-8-24

    How tight do you think I can go?

    8 is about it, you can try drop down to 7 but I doublt it's going to stable.

    Ok, looks like 7 7 7 24 is working good. I will leave prime running full memory for a good couple of hours befor im sure.
    I think it will be fine the ram is only running at 1363 and its rated for 1600

    I wouldn't concern much about the scores when I told you to use 3DMARK. I was looking for if your tight timing is going to crash with graphics benchmark or not. Now play some games to see how the memory handle the game.

    Thumbs up

    No crashes what so ever. GTA lost still gets poor frame rates, i think thats more to to with the gpu and running every thing in 1920x1080.
    Im very pleased with my oc, its all good and stable.

    Thank you for all your help.

    Could you please make some screenshots of all your Bios settings? I would really apreciate it to much, since I have been overclocking my 950 for weeks, and when all seems stable I got crashes in some games like assasins creed 2 after playing 30 mins more or less.

    Thank you in advance.
