    Default Upgrade to windows 7 64 bit 6 gigs ram

    hey guys...
    i recently had windows xp 32 bit with 3 gigs or ram. ive now upgraded to windows 7 64 bit with now 6 gigs of ram and my overclock is unstable obviously. does anyone have any ideas which voltages need more juice in order to handle my upgrade? ive gone through a couple of them one at a time upping them only one notch but with no luck. im stumped.
    heres what i got.....

    25x168 = 4.2
    ht on turbo off
    qpi = x36 = 6.04
    mem = x10 = 1680
    vcore = 1.46875
    qpivtt = 1.455
    ioh core = 1.18
    dram = 1.64
    term = 0.74
    All else manual at default

    thanks guys in advance for all your help
    jay

    heres a good link with lots of good information. i wonder if its accurate?
    ive now down clocked the ram to 1560 by having a new bclk/ratio of 156 x 27
    also ive left all those other voltages on auto save for the ones above
    give that a whirl

    Jay, why do you want to keep this OCed at 4.2GHz ?

    thanks for the input.... it wouldnt matter which overclock i use when i add more ram and go to a 64 bit system itll still turn unstable. and with 4.2 the whole system is noticeably faster in responding, loading up webpages, loading games, encoding movies, etc. its nice to have a zippy system and with an awesome cooler hey why not?
    i grant you this it is pretty nice to see teen temps with the optimzed default settings and it does make me question overclocking. i dunno bud i guess im addicted like the rest of us. put it this way im ready to drop 400 bucks on quick release fittings rotary compression fittings a drive bay pump rez combo and a 90 dollar waterblock and i probably wont see much difference. now thats wonky. and after that ill go to memory express and pick up my 300 dollar sdd drive just so it takes 10 seconds faster to load up windows. pretty dumb when i have the fastest stock processor anyway. maybe i should go drop 1200 dollars to get a 30 inch lcd maybe thatll do it. um no actually itll never be enough.
    anyway, so about that overclock... hehehehehe

    Jay,
    I thought your previous Overclock settings was already stable why did u changed everything again just becos you dropping in some rams ?

    All need to do is dial in 1.65v ram voltage it should not need any further tweaking?

    hey bud...
    i had to change my ratio and bclk because everyone was saying that i might need to underclock my ram a bit. as for that 1.65 i dont have the option. i only have 1.64 and 1.66.

    this is quite interesting btw someone who went crazy with advance ram timings. some good information if youre into that.

    progress report....
    since memtest ran good for an hour im thinking its not to do with the ram. so im leaving dram and all the timings as is and focusing on the other voltages.
    first i started with your suggestion about the qpivtt being too high and strangely enough i was getting 00000124 bsods meaning incorrect qpivtt!!
    i did lower it a bit to 1.435 and got 30 mins prime however any more lowering resulted in less prime.
    so with 1.435 ive been trying the other voltages one at a time and it looks like so far even the slightest increase gives a no go. heres where im at so far...
    ioh core 1.2............9 mins
    cpu pll 1.84............<9 mins
    pcie 1.54 .............. <7mins

    now trying qpipll 1.18
