But if you want to go like on the picture that was shown and this is really blocking the first 2 RAM slots I would avoid it. You need to fill 2 slots of the same color and they are BLCK/RED/BLCK/RED (see manual).
I lied, it really only blocks the first slot. I have mine in the two red slots and the little rubber tabs do rub up on my ram but it doesn't affect anything.

zlojack, glad you got your overclock to a (mostly) stable place!

What BIOS is "unflashable"? I am using BIOS 0902. Is that the BIOS you are referencing?

I installed it using the ASUS AI Suite's Update (BIOS) option after downloading the new BIOS file to my storage drive. If I understand correctly, the last two BIOS updates addressed some "system stability" issues, so they might help most of us find stability a little easier.

Still, from your posts, I gather that you push your builds towards the bleeding edge more than I do!

PS - Welcome to the club - glad to have you aboard!

How is the new, unflashable BIOS doing for people?

Anyone actually notice a stability boost from the new bios 0706 update?

well im used to open a lot of stuff i had few times already messages telling me that i need to close something because im running out of memory ...
sometimes even my Firefox uses like 3GB ...

and about the BIOS just installed it ...



and that's my current OC
guys im kind a new at SB overclocking and the mobo so so do you think its OK ??

ohh and most important how should I overclock my GPU ?? msi afterburner doesn't even let me see or change the voltage
and most important I thing something is wrong with my ssd (i just updated it with the new firmware too but i thinks its still running too slow )


Ohh and tonight I will order my new monitor probably the DELL U2412M or maybe Benq EW2730 its just killing its been like few weeks now and i still cant decide
and probably an extra pair of ram

I think i want a soundcard :S
I cant really explain it, nor have "problems" with the x-fi camouflaged realtek on this board, just hearing music on my HD555... does not feel the same, as on my audigy4.

What do you think?

You don't really need to adjust the voltage, but you can unlock voltage control in the Afterburner settings.

Many cards will oc 10% or more on stock voltages. Just make sure you adjust your fan profile so it doesn't get too hot.

I tried it but it doesn't let me :S

most of the people that have my gpu say that it hit 1GHz easy

Just like we all say 4.8 GHz or even 5.0 GHz on this board with a 2500k or 2600k is easy too ? my point being most DO NOT hit that level, but get somewhat close, and just like OC's for every CPU is different based on the luck of you're dealt from the CPU gods ... so too does this apply with GPU overclocking, not every chip is created equal.

Check in the Graphics cards forums, I know there have been a few threads about issue's with MSI Afterburner and fixing the voltage control issues, I'm sure you'll find your resolution in there somewhere. Plus I thought I read somewhere in that mess too that there's a new BETA version (2.2.0 Beta 7) of MSI's Afterburner that fixes it too or something ? But another option might be to download and use the ASUS GPU Tweak version 1.10 for Windows ?

Lastly with as cheap as it is right now ... BUY MORE RAM !

thanks I was just running 3DMark06
with GPU : core 1GHz, shader 2GHz, and memory 2.1Ghz
and it was just fine i did MSI Kombustor benchmark some 3DMark06 it all went fine
thats with the cpu and ram OC I posted earlier


hmm so my problem came when I tried with 5.15Ghz with 1.435V
i started 3DMark all cool major jump in fps but it crashes when it starts to do the cpu only tests ...
I thinks its needs more voltage but im afraid to put it ...
and maybe I need to change some other stuff too not to leave most of the stuff on auto ....

but yea im afraid not to fry my new PC and im still not really sure what I am doing so I stopped trying ....
and put it back to 4.45Ghz bus speed 103.5 .. i set the Voltage to 1.33V booted and Im currently running prime95 ....
and my cpu-z says that my voltage is below 1.3 V
it says 1.296V most of the time and sometimes it drops to 1.288
and i even have the epu power saving on ...
(its been 30 mins since i started prime and my max core temperatures are like 64C (they stay around like 60-64C )


ohh and yea I think I will bye the extra pair of ram (here it will cost me 70 euros :S ) (better then new PSU right ??
