specs: 1090t , sabertooth, vengence ram etc

Thats normal, its your load line calibration, it adds voltage to ensure you dont drop below what you set it too, you can try lowering llc setting in bios but i would leave it alone, thats a small jump anyways. I have my 1100t at 4255mhz, vcore at 1.45 and llc set to take it up to 1.5v when needed, its usually 1.48-1.5 when using prime.

Yes it will be erased, you can make a backup of your bios but i dont think you can transfer to the new bios. I havent tried, i kinda have my oc memorized and just reapply when i try a new bios, just to be safe right down the stuff you changed

I dont have the asus suite loaded up right now, install is locking up but I would at least set the cpu-nb llc to high and 110-120% and try that, regardless leave it there for now at cpu-nb 2000mhz (you should overclock this probably first though). If that doesnt work raise the cpu-nb to 1.20-1.25v, I really think the cpu-nb is holding you up at this point assuming the core has more left in it. These are loose numbers but I had 4100mhz stable with 2800cpu-nb, 4200mhz cpu and 2800cpu-nb would fail quick! Even though cpu-nb didnt get raised higher it needed more voltage for 4200 so once I bumped that up a bit it started working like a charm, my cpu doesnt like 4300mhz, highest I had was 4277 but keep it at 4244mhz to stay "safe".

you wont hurt the cpu-nb, some people report it being able to handle 1.4-1.45v for 24/7 use but regardless I have been at 1.35v for months with no issues, so dont worry about it too much in case you were wondering.

I cant confirm this since I overclocked my cpu-nb early into the cpu overclock, but due to the balance that the cpu and cpu-nb need to be happy at 4000mhz+ cpu you should at least be 2400mhz cpu-nb, possibly 2600mhz. There is a chart somewhere on OCN someone made. Guess they need to keep a balance or one can hold the other back. Also if you try setting the BUS clock up a bit and lower the multiplier it could help too, but that gets a little more involved since you also need to worry about other items overclocking that way too.

thanks for the info.

what i was trying to do is get the cores as stable as possible before i started oc'ing everything else. if i can get stable at 4.1ghz, ill leave it there. i dont feel like tempting fate again lol. what type of nb oc would be somewhat decent? im thinking maybe somewhere between 2400-2600mhz..

2600 is EASY, Im told some people get 3400mhz+ but mine doesnt like over 3100mhz. Try to get 2800mhz if you can, Im at 3055mhz with 1.33v but my load line is at extreme, same with the cpu btw.

New board owner here. I just got it up and running tonight. How does anyone get that software suite to run? I have downloaded mulitple version with two more in the queue. So far they have all installed but then they crash when running or throw error windows up constantly. What is going on here?

Good luck, i have only had luck with the cd rom, I have the crosshair board but looks like the sabertooth has the same problem. once it crashes the cd rom fails to install as well, last time I reinstalled an image of my OS rather than see what gets messed up in windows, but i just tried with a fresh download the other day and failed, tried to install with the cd tonight to get screen shots for firestorm1 and cd now fails, dont want to install my image yet so gonna try to search how to clear windows of whatever happened to install from cd again. Let me know if you beat me to it, I probably wont start looking tonight.
