Well ... I'm a complete noob when it comes to OC'ing ... but, yeah off the Asus "Auto Tune" I hit "EXTREME BOOST" and got a 33% boost to right just under 4.6 GHz without even knowing what the hell I was doing ... it jumped over 5 GHz once but then I guess wouldn't run 'stable' enough without me tweaking other things and just using my little Noctua and it rebooted back at 4.476 GHz a 31% gain ... however when I opened the ROG CPU-Z it only logged that # for a brief second or so and then showed me down in the 1.something range I guess because I had no load going on the CPU I dunno ?

But if " I " can achieve that not knowing what the hell I'm doing I assume if you've done OC'ng before 5.0 GHz should be an attainable goal, and yeah even Air Cooled. I was watching "JJ" from ASUS on NewEgg TV OC'ing an i7 2600K w/ the Max4Extrm-Z68 board and he got it to 5.2 w/ a Cooler Master hyper 212.

EDIT: Also, maybe check out My Post #511 ... http://www.overclock.net/14161833-post511.html


They first boosted the processor's voltage to 1.35V ... then bumped the 'base multiplier' to 45 ... then adjusted the BCLK to 103 MHz ... for a final peak clock speed of 4.64 GHz !

They said the i7 2600K can reach 5.7 GHz but you'd need some exotic system mods and high end cooling to try ... GOOD LUCK !

ASUS here and there kind of was misleading in the way they worded a few things, like about the Intel Smart-RT (having a "min 18.6GB available" means that's the minimum you NEED not what's provided), the new Lucid Virtu Tech. (I'm still playing with this trying to get it to work, but seems once you install it, some programs can't recognize your GPU card ???), and about the Sound Blaster SupremeFX X-Fi 2 (I guess their definition of "Built-In" and mine are different rolleyes.gif ), maybe something gets lost in translation or something, I don't think they're going out of their way to deceive or confuse anyone, but they could make a few things clearer IMO. smile.gif

Thanks! This was the line which mislead me to thinking that the board has a built in SSD

Intel® Smart Response Technology

Faster Access, Bigger Storage
Intel® Smart Response Technology boosts overall system performance. It uses an installed fast SSD (min 18.6GB available) as a cache for frequently accessed operations, speeding up hard drive/main memory interaction.

Nothing on the manual says that I need to purchase a separate SSD, so I thought a built in SSD is provided since this feature is highlighted.

Also the Virtu Lucid is nice.. only if you are using 1 monitor as far as I know.

Also picked up an M4 128GB and the Noctua d14. Hope everything fits and plays nice *crossing fingers*

Nope ...

I'm sure it's something stupid I'm doing

Pardon the potentially obvious question...

What mode do you have it set to in the virtu control panel? If you're disabling onboard, it should be done in there as well.

If you are looking to use that drive as a cache you will have to partition it to smaller then 64GB. Actually, has anyone confirmed that you can partition a ssd in cache? I know when I was briefly tinkering with it at work, there were only two options available for cache- the full 60GB drive I have, and a 18.something partition.

Any luck with ISRT with drives larger than 64GB?

Hi from Slovakia!
Love this thread. Just got my Gene-z on Monday this week. It was a bit of a headache to stabilize it, but now it's ok.
Here are some remarks, maybe it helps someone. I had mainly two problems:
1. MEMORY - I brought the Corsair vengeance LP 2x4GB 1600MHz 9-9-9-24@1,5V. In the black slots i've got no boot - code 58 (which points to CPU). Moved them to the red slots and it started. Anyway it won't run on the XMP profile. I was able to stabilize it on 1333 CL9 at 1,6V. At 1,5V it was unstable as well. We've put the memory in my friend's PC (P67 Deluxe), loaded the XMP profile - all stable. I took his memory (Patriot Sector 5 1600MHz 8-9-8-24@1,65V), loaded XMP - rock stable
2. SSD - Yeah, you've probably heard all that **** about the intel controllers and new SSD's ( i have the Agility 3 120GB). So i had this freezing for few seconds-minutes. I loaded new intel drivers, flashed the ssd, changed it to "hotplug"..etc. No change. Finally it seems to be solved by disabling LPM in the registry.

Also i tried some OC with my 2500K. Set offset voltage to +0.005, 4,4Ghz was pretty solid during prime95. The final vcore was around 1,288. There's a bsod however when the cpu is downclocking, but i'll figure this out. Didn't have too much time to OC yet.
Otherwise the board is nice, i love it. The onboard sound seem to bo ok too, played Crysis 2 and all the fx was there.

mr.base:

I saw that these Vengeance Low Profiles ar not in the QVL list, but i didnt think that they would not go... The good question is now, what 2x4GB kit should one buy, that doesnt have large heatspreaders...

And what is this SSD problem? I didnt heard anything about that. I am planning to buy az Intel 320 120GB SSD for this system. Is that also problematic?

I guess you could take the CMX8GX3M2A1600C9. They are on the QVL list. But the are a lot of LP rams from G.skill, Patriot, Kingston and Mushkin as well. I was also surprised that it's causing such issues...i thought they're the same as the others just with a different heatspreader.

I think you won't have any problems if you are buying an Intel SSD. An intel SSD should work with the intel controller. The problem with other SSD's is that intel enable a function called LPM - Link Power Management. This should save some mili or micto Watts by enabling and disabling the sata drives. This causes issues for non intel SSD's. I guess intel just want's to sell their own SSD's showing that other have issues...that's pretty lame
