I've been arsing around in my BIOS trying to get a decent stable OC. CPU is @ 4.4 now and the results without any GPU OC have broken the 10k mark... http://www.3dmark.com/fs/2845858 I dropped my XMP1 (2400 / 1.65 / 11-13-13-30 ) to manually under-ride the default and run at 1333. Seems to create a bit more stability, but it's all a learning curve to me. Various terminologies and phrases which mean the same fundamental thing are confusing at times (in relation to guides) but I'm guessing that tighter timings equate to better performance and stability as opposed to faster frequencies ? Edit+-+-+-+_+_=-+-=_=-0=-0++-09-----8-9--- http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/8767856 ??? Demo vers. 720. Didn't know there was an 11 vers. I take it that my score can be significantly reduced if running at 1080 as opposed to the 720 of the demo ?
