Am I overclocking memory with this board wrong ?



Using a MSI 785GM-E51 motherboard and trying to overclock Crucial Ballistix Tracers with red LEDs 1600 MHz 4GB DDR3 kit BL2KIT25664TR1608.

This kit works great at 1600 MHz on this board, i can set the timings to 7-7-5-15 and it works great.

But the max OC that it will work at is 1704 MHz with the bus speed 210 MHz. I tried looeser timings like 10-10-10-30 at this speed. Using the Phenom II X2 550, with 15.5 multiplier, 10 for NB, 10 for HT.

RAM Voltage is at 1.76V
CPU Voltage is at 1.45
CPU-NB - 1.32V
