Ha sorry I heven't given any details about how to achieve it.

I'll give you instructions but only the changes required after applying my 3 steps OC guide. This mean I won't touch some settings that those who manually OC would actually look at.

1st mandatory step it set VCore Phase Control to Optimized under Digi+ VRM/POWER Control. This will unlock the Offset Mode option for CPU Voltage but before going back to select that option immediatly, change the VCore Load-line Calibration to 50%.

Now go back to main and select Offset Mode for CPU Voltage.
Offset Mode Sign to -
CPU Offset Voltage to 0.010

That's it. This works flawless for my Core i5-2500K @ 4.6GHz OC using the CPU Level Up option set to 4.6 (which take care of other settings). At idle using CPU-Z I read 0.992v and 1.336v full load.

I was able to run IBT at 'Higher' 5 pass without problem. As I'm writing this I'm running FurMark and IBT just for the fun of it.



Results may be different for you or anyone!

Just FYI, IBT and LinX are not the best tests of stability. I can easily pass 100 cycles of IBT or LinX at 4.9 GHz and 1.45V, but my system will fail Prime95 after 1-2 hours at those settings. I don't consider an overclock stable for 24/7 use unless it can pass at least 8 hours of Prime95 blend.

Moral of the story: run Prime95 on blend! It may be old, but it's the best test for stability IMO.

Will do but not sure I will run it 8 hours though... I've read a few reports where IBT would not get past the 2nd pass so I thought that this was somewhat ok.

I would like someone with a 3 pins fan connected on the CPU Fan header to confirm this is working.

Like I told in a recent post, I upgraded BIOS from 0208 to 0403 and it's still a no go for me.

I asked the question in the RoG forums and I really hope an ASUS guy will reply.


works perfectly for me. AI Suite can control the fans (have done it before), but need to setup a profile first. Normally, USER profile will work.

Specifically, Fan Xpert tool has the option. No apparent way to max 100% easily, without setting up a temp curve.

EDIT: I take that back. Fan Xpert's test gave the same ~1200 RPM for all test ranges... not right. I remember my old Rampage II GENE having a voltage control option for fans...

So it works for you or not? Have you tried enabling QFan for the CPU in BIOS and did it work?

EDIT: was looking at your memory... the manual suggest (page 2-5) to fill the red slots (A2, B2) first. Maybe not very important but just so you know.

For everyone having installation issues with AI Suite II,
I may have the solution for you.


When I tried running Setup.exe of AI Suite II or any application in the huge AI Suite II folder the setup would crash and nothing happen. This was puzzling for a long time but never insisted on the problem. Tonight I decided to find why this was happening. I *think* it is related to Win7 SP1 but unsure.

You need to patch the installation THEN you'll be able to install the package.

See http://support.asus.com/Search/KDeta...36FF6174CD&t=2

I hope this will be useful for some of you!
Yeah, I made mention of this a bit ago, kinda surprised Asus does not have it as part of the downloads.

crap..forgot to ask; why do you have your hard drive on SATA port 4?
I keep getting all kinds of different error kodes, so it's not one , well I remember 62 oe 9a f2 31 etc.(at work right now)

I have my boot disk in the first grey bottom , my 'slave' over that, and my dvd rom in the bottom next to the red, if you get me. only master wd green 500 gig plugged in while getting this up and running.Does it matter where it is ?

Ok, I'm dumb, totaly forgot about post codes, never had a board with those my Bios issue is because I'm getting error 34, what I don't get is that once I select the OS drive I boot into windows and was able to install it properly and I'm stable with my ram running at rated speeds cpu with turbo with no stability issues. When I get home after work I'll try to reset ram and do the bios reset like Raja@asus said to do, remove cpu and reset cmos with no cpu in the socket, let's hope it works. This board seams to be a total pain to get working. Never had issues like that.

I'm trying the new setup for cooling, and also wanted to fit a secondary video card.
Choices


The GTX260 would be my 1st choice, unfortunately it's not 1Gb, a bit too long and look at the power demand!


The Radeon is 1Gb and not long. Hey, no power demand!

It only uses a single 6-pin

Changed a fitting on the video card. As you can see just enough room.


And with every thing in place I can connect the hoses again..
