Not much to be gained with tighter timings, especially with 3dmark06. I believe you have reached the max of all your settings... only thing left is the video card to OC! Download Rivatuner, and play with it! You may be able to change the Crysis settings to Med-High, once the card is oc'ed.

NEVER, EVER (!) trust CPU-Z for voltage readings! CPU-Z is known to 'misread' the Vcore. Use Everest or something similar. Now this doesn't mean that 1.4250V is bad for you CPU.

As a matter of fact....these Conroes like a little more juice....as long as the cooling is appropriate!

As for your RAM...your timings are pretty tight already, however you could leave them at 4-4-4-10 and see if you can squeeze some more MHz out of them, to make it run a little faster!

Good Luck

Yeah, from here on in, the only way you're probably going to get any more juice out of the memory is to muck about with the secondary timings and that's a whole new ball of wax which takes quite some time and a lot of effort.

Best bet is to play with what you've got for a while to make sure it's absolutely stable and then think about spending a weekend somewhere down the line to play with the secondary timings.

Secondary timing tweaking can be mind numbing, but I've managed to eek out 3%+ gains to benchmarks like super-pi (I think it also has a fair amount of effect on other pure # crunching apps like folding).

It's not for the weak of heart though.... a "too tight" secondary timing will more often than not require a hard c-mos reset to get the board to boot again so it's quite time intensive.
