    Are you copying me or something? I have that chip, motherboard, GFX card, and a Santa Cruz! :p

    I might have another go at clocking this rig. Only got up to 2.7 last time!

    Just wondering what settings to put in my bios to get a good overclock of around 2.7/2.8 for the DFI lanparty nf3 250gb.

    Keep the HTT between 1600 and 1800

    so HTT multi is 3 x 2 x 270 = 1620 HTT or 2700Mhz

    The memory controller will likely give up beyond 270 / 275.

    Use memory divider as needed. The CPU should not need more than 1.6v, 1.7max. Keep temps <55c or less the higher the clock.
