what Bios are you running? If you are running 705 with the phenom II I really don't know about the OC'ing with that set up but the 402 bios is great for the phenom in fact I was very happy with the 402 and would stay with it, the only thing fixed (haha) in 705 is raid stuff which I don't do anyway, my SSD gets 7.9 on its own so not needed with read speeds of 500mb and random reads of 625mb.
NOW with the new Bulldozer chips GET THE 705 OUT of THERE, it is a OC'ing NIGHTMARE!!!!! I could not get one thing out of stock settings with out major problems in windows 7 64bit even the ram would not run over 1333mhz
The 810 bios which is a BETA (and they mean BETA) lol, is not all that bad for Bulldozer but there are so really finicky settings that must be done so you have any luck to OC'ing the chip! I spent three hole nights screwing around with different settings and tried every way I could to fine a stable way to OC my chip and be Stable, I must say that ASUS is pissing me off right now!!!! I talked to them and even have a case number, and was promised a pre-beta or Alpha Bios to help with there PCI-E problems and the CPU performance problems and with random hangs + lock ups, and ext......
They still have no idea (Remember this board was MADE for the AM3+ = Bulldozer CPU and was launched in June when the CPU was expected to launch with it) About how to fix this bios???? What are they doing???? I see that CH-V just got another bios but it still doesn't fix the problems that are happening on this board as well as all there AM3+ boards!!! What did they test???? ASUS released a statement that the 890 series chip-set will work with the new Bulldozer but the full performance will be unleashed on the 990FX chip-set so what did they test to come up with this statement????
