Hey Muff1n...

As you are aware, I have never been able to get this board stable at speeds above 3.4 ghz... I'm a little puzzled why you expect to get higher here...

I do have the Zalman also, but it just isn't stable. Are you able to hold at 3.4 ghz (that is stable)? (not 3.46 ghz)?

I think the point of overclocking (from what I have heard here) is to find the fastest, most stable level your mb and cpu will go... There isn't any promise that you will (a) be able to overclock the machine and (b) have a dramatic overclock. Try to keep that in perspective while you are doing this. I found myself getting frustrated and trying for higher and higher speeds... I would have probably blew my machine up if I hadn't thought about this or reset my perspectives.

I would sit at the stable level and count your blessings that you managed to overclock this fast! 3.3 ghz or 3.4 ghz is nothign to sneeze at!
