    I bet the chip does hit four... I can get it to post at 4... but can't get my ram to get into windows... I get vistas bar and then after the sound... error..

    But this is what I got for 3.8

    you almost can't kill a 65nm quads, unlike 45nm quads. They are alot beefer than 45nm quads.

    Is there any such BIOS that is more-widely known for better OCs and such? Still on 308 myself.
