    Also, I downloaded Coretemp, but it doesn't seem to be showing my temperatures?

    Ok, so I ran the Intel Burn Test with the load set to maximum. Since my coretemp wasn't showing values I ran some software that came with the board to show temps. My temp never went past 42 C for my cpu, but I still got a bluescreen after a couple minutes. Why would this happen?

    Try running your memory at 1333 MHz. If that is stable, then lower the timings at 1333.

    I've found that the AMD Phenom II platforms run faster using 1333MHz memory at low timings, than 1600MHz at decent timings.

    Also, since that is a Black Edition processor, try keeping the HTT the same, and increasing the multiplier instead.

    I switched my memory from 1600 to 1333, but ran at 8-8-8-24. This time I didn't get a bluescreen, but my cpu temp went up to 56C. I believe it auto adjusted voltage for me as well.

    That's a very fair voltage considering the unlocked nature of your chip and that clock speed.

    When you say it auto adjusted voltage, what do you mean exactly?

    It was fluctuating, even though I manually set it to a certain voltage. I was messing with it last night and all my stuff got jacked up so I reset everything and went to bed. I am not really sure what to do.

    Edit: I want to take some pictures of my bios to get some advice on what exactly to adjust.

    My ASUS board is running that A-Data memory stable at 1600 with 7-8-7-21 1T timings, so I imagine that at 1333, you can at least tighten to the same timings.

    As for the overclocking, are you doing it through the BIOS or through a utility from your board manufacturer? I haven't had as much time as I would like to play with mine yet, so I was just trying the ASUS utilities to make it simple, but that did a lot of auto adjusting, so when I move the multiplier above a certain level, it would reset it or turn down the bus speed. It also didn't like me trying to adjust the voltages and such. Therefore, through that utility, I have only been able to get the two cores of my 550 up to 3.7GHz and it seems unstable on four cores if I try anything above stock (though the four cores at stock run IBT @ max just fine). When I have more time, we are going manual.

    I did all the overclocking through the bios. My board has overclocking 2 presets. 25% increase and 30% increase where it auto adjusts everything. With these settings I can set my ram to 1600, 1920, or a couple other lower ones below 1333. When I did it manually through just my multiplier(x19) I moved it up to 3.8ghz. I was also able to move my memory to 1333. That was at the 8-8-8-24. My cpu ran good, without any problems other than it heating up. That burn test is pretty rough though, I am not sure what it would take to run all my cores at 100% other than that test. When the load let off, it cooled down to 38-40 real fast. I also could use a fan controller to manually crank up my fans for that reason as well. What else increase the clock speed besides raising the multiplier? What is the importance of raising voltage? What voltage should I not go over?

    You can change the HT to increase your CPU speed as well.

    But before you really start trying to overclock, what cooler are you using on your processor? If you are using the stock heatsink, that would explain your temps. Let me know what type of cooling you are using, and I can assist you further.

    Ok, you have a decent enough cooler, so temps should not really be a problem. Now, could you tell me what settings you are using in your BIOS? Also, how far are you wanting to try to push your processor?

    Well at first I was using the auto overclock options in my bios. 25% would take it to 3.6ghz, and 30% would go to 3.8ghz. The memory I switched from 1333 to 1600. I tried manually overclocking by raising the multiplier from 16 to 19. That took it up to 3.8ghz. When I manually did it, I had also switched me ram to 1333, 8-8-8-24. That is when it was ok, but it was getting hotter under the maximum load test from the Intel Burn Test. What other settings do you want to know? I am still new to this stuff so I really don't know what to switch and stuff haha. I would like to push my processor to anywhere from 3.8-4ghz max. Thanks!

    How are your temps? How are voltages?

    well under full load test from the intel burn test they were raising as high as 56C. The voltage looked like it changed from anywhere from 1.48-1.56ish.
