Hey MadMan, thanks....
I wrote a long story about boards hundred pages ago (can't really remember which page). To cut the long story short, there is no need to be a fanboy. Whichever make has good official and forum reviews, just go for it. I would definitely try AsRock Extreme4 or Extreme6 (depending on your economy). They both have very good reviews, also Sabertooth X79 is a very good board which is more or less same price range.
No probs Geezer thumb.gif

Hey Guys,

Been a long time admirer of this site and the advice/help you all give out so thought I better join up! Tomorrow will be overclocking my system so just a pre-warning for when I drive you nuts with questions etc smile.gif. So far it is pre OC (by means of the turbo boost) to 4200 and so far all is perfect with it!!, this was done by the guys who built it for me while I was away! Looking to get about 4.5, which is enough for me! smile.gif

My system is below:

I7 3820
Alpenfohn K2 Mount Doom cooler
Asus p9x79 Pro
Kingston HyperX Genesis Grey 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit
KFA2 670

Thank you!!!

Can you post the screenshot of the overclock settings screen? "CPU Base Clock Strap" is grey out & the value only changed when you set "CPU Base Clock" (e.g. when BCLK is 116 or above, Strap change to 1.25), right?

I have tried in automatic with 126 and in manuel with 101-1.25. Same results, no boot.

For the moment, my CPU runs at 43*105 with a vcore at 1.29v. It is not really exceptionnal frown.gif

P9X79 Pro is surely a very good board, I didn't mention about that becoz she says she's already tried it and got good results.
