    But how much is the question.... I doubt due to the density of the modules, will never get to be stable.

    I use 1.3-1.35 on my Phenom II's. I got a 980 to 4.5Ghz stable and have seen newer batches of 955 and 965's do close.

    Yeah, the 980 is a special animal, it clocks exceptionally well. I think JrRacinFan was referring to the density of the memory modules though and that is a reason why it might doesn't want to take to 1600Mhz.

    That was rhetorical. I've used up to 1.37v without ill effects.
