Thanks.

I believe the 1.10 official is the best way to go right now. Latest beta BIOS is a bit older if I'm not mistaken.

Its unrelated AFAIK, it is to fix some intel chipset bug with virtualization.

I got a p67 extreme4 gen 3 & a 2500k a few days ago biggrin.gif

the board has been great to work with so far. I was able to get a 46x oc with 1.345vcore fixed. Is the offset voltage necessary?

also, I use a steel series Xai mouse and when I first put my system together it worked in bios, after installing the xai software, it no longer works in there? Anyone else have this?

Quite common, try one of their beta BIOS reversions.

By the way, good job on the guide, nice to see more and more available in the Intel section. thumb.gif +rep.

I found a stable prime-95 12 hours on my before and after settings. On the before settings I was getting the infamous 0x124 idle bsod. Haven't got one yet on the after settings. Any idea why the after settings produce the same result but 10 degrees hotter? How do I test PLL voltage?

Before:

* Advanced Turbo 50 - Disabled
* Load Optimized CPU OC Settings - Turbo 4.6GHz
* Internal PLL Overvoltage - Enabled
* Intel SpeedStep Technology - Enabled
* Core Current Limit - 150
* Host Clock Overrride (BCLK) - 100.0MHz
* SpeedSpectrum - Disabled
* DRAM Configuration - RAM stock settings --> 1.5v 1600mhz
* CPU Core Voltage - Fixed Mode - 1.36v
* CPU Load-Line Calibration - Level 1
* Everything else on Auto except for the c3/c6 states to disabled.

338
After:

* Ratio: Manual Max Ratio = 46
* Advanced Turbo 50 - Disabled
* Turbo Boost Power - Manual
* Short Duration Power Limit - 250
* Long Duration Power Limit - 250
* Core current Limit - 250
* Internal PLL Overvoltage - Enabled
* Intel SpeedStep Technology - Enabled
* Core Current Limit - 150
* Host Clock Overrride (BCLK) - 100.0MHz
* SpeedSpectrum - Disabled
* DRAM Configuration - RAM stock settings --> 1.5v 1600mhz
* CPU Core Voltage - Fixed Mode - 1.395v
* CPU Load-Line Calibration - Level 2
* Everything else on Auto

vccio/PTT = 1.05, pll = 1.627

VID = 1.3761, vcore = 1.368.... so an offset of = -.0081 or -.001 Whenever I go to offset mode and disable the c3/c6 states my computer won't boot! Am I doing something wrong?

Any idea why my temps are like 10 degrees hotter?
