Specs: Windows 7
hey guys im trying to oc my "scorpius" pc a little. still kinda new to this but i want to run my ram at its rated specs 2000mhz. right now the bus is at 200 and the multiplier is at 20. my ht and nb is at 2000mhz. the ram is 1600mhz. the only volts i changed are the ram which is at 1.6v, the cpu nb vid control +.5v, and cpu voltage control +.5v. the cpu nb vid and cpu voltage is +.5v from the stock setting. this is the current setting i have now, are my volts totally way off?. i tried the bus at 250, multiplier at 16, ht and nb multiplier at 8, and ram multipler at x8. also i left cpb at 2000mhz. it just keeps saying there is an error and it goes back to mobo ram default which is at 1066mhz. which voltages do i have to increase for it to post and log onto windows desktop? do i just keep upping the voltages for the cpu nb vid control and cpu voltage control until it posts and goes into desktop? should i increase other voltages in my bios also? all the voltages for my bios that i see are cpu pll voltage control, dram voltage control, ddr vt voltage control, nb voltage control, ht link voltage control, nb/pcie/pll voltage control, cpu nb vid control, and cpu voltage control. i want it to be 4ghz for cpu clock, ht, nb, and ram at 2000mhz. not sure about the cpb so i leave it at 2000mhz? also what timings would be best for the ram to run at 2000mhz? any help would be greatly appreciated, sorry if i sound stupidly noob. here are my specs for my pc, oh by the way bios and all firmware are up to date.

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit
Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD7 Motherboard
Corsair Dominator GT CMT8GX3M2A2000C9 DDR3 2000 MHz 2 x 4 GB Memory

I have no experience with the new platform but I know the FX-8150 "officially" supports up to DDR3-1866. What happens if you set the memory to AUTO? I'm guessing it will run at 1866MHz. I believe what you're attempting to do is set the CPU frequency to 250MHz & set the memory multiplier to 8x to "force" the memory speed to 2000MHz?

"the only volts i changed are the ram which is at 1.6v....."

Check your RAM specs. The voltage should be at 1.65v.
