Let me start with I know nothing about overclocking. All I know is that my machine won't boot with all 6 ram slots full. The ram I have is supposed to be at 1.5v but in order to even boot my system I have to have it set to 1.74v. Is this normal?? Also am I going to damage anything by doing this? Thanks!!!
Does your RAM support XMP? If so I would try the XMP profile to see if the increased RAM bus voltage is enough to get it stable. My Asus P6X58D-E motherboard uses the XMP built into my ram to automatically apply a safe overclock. I have my 950 overclocked manually to 4ghz with a bus voltage at 1.64 all the time with no worries.
