I am trying to OC as far as possible without messing too much with the voltage. 12hours of Prime95 is my base for stability.
Board: ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 - AM3 HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB PSU: Antec EarthWatts EA750 750W Mem: Mushkin Enhanced Silverline (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) 1.65v CAS:7 tCL: 7 tRCD: 10 tRP: 10 tRAS: 24 CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE 3.4 (200x17) 125W
Passed: Test (235x17) = 3.995 with the RAM at DDR3: 1333MHz and NB set to auto Passed: Test (211x18) = 3.798 Passed: Test (200x19) = 3.8 Passed: Test (203x19) = 3.857 Failed: (204x19) = 3.876 Loaded Win 7, but did not pass test.
I was reading on here somewhere about the value of raising your NB, so I began modifying that variable. The system passed/failed on the same settings whether the NB is set @2400 or @2600.
Final OC? Stable at the following... CPU: 203x19 = 3857MHz NB@ 2657MHz DDR: 1624MHz
This is air cooled, no adjustments to voltage. Recomendations, or should I be happy with this?

Is there something in particular that you are trying to get better performance in, or just overclocking for the sake of overclocking? If it is the latter, then there's just such thing as "just be happy".
