Open ended, please explain......they my experience OC'ing a "weak" IMC on a CPU immediately rears itself as I progress they OC'ing.....some Chips just plain suck when trying to run say 1866 vs 1600 or 2133 vs 1866.....

Swapping out Chips with the same and low n behold the Chip may handle the higher Memory speed fine.....I figure tapping the IMC as the culprit is a reasonable conclusion ;)

Firestrike Extreme: 21.452
MARK 11: 32.530
