You can have an overclock stable without these features,its just that some people report better results with them(c1e/eist) enabled.
The main problem of this "workaround" is the power wasted :/
Yah I would like to avoid any workaround if possible as the board is new, so it should work. Does anyone think I will get any love if I just RMA the board? I ask because I suspect it will pass all the tests they run on it and a leak is going to be hard to find.

I ran DPC latency checker; no problems there it seems.

The only difference in drivers is the USB 3.0 (ASMedia, NEC).

As for BIOSes, they're incompatible because of this. Don't even try.

Hey!

I don't know. All you have to do is try voltages that are slightly higher. You'll nail it after 3-4 tries. All you have to do is select a voltage, boot into Windows, open CPU-Z and Prime95 and then start Prime95. Each time you'll be able to see the full-load voltage and then you'll see whether or not you nailed it on that try.

It is easier than I am making it sound.[/QUOTE]

i have changed the settings you recommend and i have tried to input voltages from 1.27 up to 1.37 but i get bsod upon restarting . so i had revert back to my old settings.not sure what's wrong here.
but on my old settings everything seem to run ok.apart from the core voltage in cpu-z showing @max 1.38-1.40?

thank you for this. could have bricked my mobo with wrong bios file! rep+

I have a couple Questions. (Supernoob to Overclocking)

1) Should I update the BIOS even though my Rig is running smoothly?
2) Does the AI Suite II Auto overclock feature work well? I'm not trying to push my chip too far. 4.0-4.3 would be cool with me.

1) If you realy feel the need to get a newer BIOS. although sometimes updating BIOS could make OC more stable.

2) If you want to do 4.0-4.3GHz you don't need Auto OC or whatever, just go to BIOS and type in your frequency. You can use stock settings up to 4.1GHz easly. (atleast for me, and if you're lucky you could use stock voltage with CPU current capability 120% and go 4.3)

can someone share some bios settings for overclocking an i5 2500k with a P8P67 Pro? just somewhere to start from, and what settings to enable/disable/set to auto etc

Check first threads, there should be OC template, some setting are very similar. except for voltages they are different for almost every CPU.

"first threads" = ??

anyway, i've been playing around and seem to be desktop stable at 5ghz @ 1.33vcore. how's that?
