I've just looked in the BIOS and when I look at CPU Voltage, I can visibly see it fluctuating between 1.288, 1.296 and 1.304.

In windows the Vcore is at 1.488 (In AISuiteII and CPUZ).

Hrm....

PS I don't want to kill my CPU!
It won't kill the CPU but ideally we don't want to apply extra voltage when not needed. I don't know what to say. I did it 3 times, the 1st time when I got the motherboard, then 2 other times after flashing newer BIOS version because when you flash, all settings revert back to initial state.

All the time I was successful with those simple settings.

When you set to 4.2 or 4.6, just go down a bit and you will see what the voltage applied will be. It's not in another screen where you read live values, it's just below the CPU Level Up option.

No, it's the same thing...

I'd like to get that working still on my board if possible, but i'm obviously missing something. I wanna stay at 4.6ghz overclock on my stock 1.344V so my temps stay cool
CPU Level Up @ 4.6 will apply 1.35v so 1.344v is a good reading. Now when it idle @ 1.6GHz, what voltage do you get? Does it drop? With additional instructions in my sig, it should drop to 1v

Negative, it does not last time I tried it.

Ok, so after a few hours of pulling my hair out and flashing my bios probably ten times with various versions of the bios I fixed my restart issue. Turned out the code 19 that I was getting during a restart or saving from my bios was being caused by my TV Tuner card in the PCIe x4 slot. Pulled it out (the card, not my hair) and no more issues.

On a side note, I will say for those having a hard time overclocking their CPU's, just install AISuite and use the level up software to overclock your cpu. It's simple and you can have it overclock just the CPU (Fast mode) or both memory and CPU (Extreme mode).

One thing I do like about AISuite, it's great for fine tuning your system to get a stable overclock, saves from having to reboot each time. I found adjusting PLL and my memory voltages allowed me to drop my CPU voltage a little and got my system stable. Anyway, instal it, use it for fine tuning, save the settings in the BIOS and then uninstall the software if you want.

Lastly, in the instructions for flashing using Aptio, the application I used AFUWINGUI and not AFUWINx64 as the instructions state. Seemed to be easier than the command line window.

I really, really hate AI suite for some reason. It always warns me my fans are low RPM @ 600 (they're running at 2000rpm) over and over and over again. I tried the automatic OC'ing and it was terribly unstable, plus it bumped my PCI-E up to 103mhz which caused graphics card crashes left and right. I went back to using the BIOS to OC and I like it much better.

I just used it to fine tune my overclock, however, for some they may find it helpful if they don't want to stick to the 4.6Ghz auto overclock option. As far as using it for anything beyond that, I have repeatedly said not too and that a program like AIDA64 is much better for monitoring temps and voltages, but that's just my preference.

I got error messages from AI Suite for the longest, mostly saying the PLL voltage was 0.000v or the MB was -60C (yes, I meant to type -60 C), but they just eventually stopped without me doing anything.

I finally purchased my Gene-Z and the RAM to go with it. The RAM I got is the Corsair Vengeance 16GB set. I have hyper212+, will I have clearance issues with the HSF? Will shifting the CPU Fan up on the heatsink solve this problem? I know that the ripjaws are okay in clearance, but the difference in height between the two RAM is illustrated here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/psygeis...n/photostream/.

I didn't think it was that huge of a difference.
