Thx again Cele303, but my board won't even boot with those settings
However, I found that I can get a full 3 year warranty on my cpu from Intel even if it died from oc'ing or degredation due to oc'ing, they'll replace it no questions asked.
(35$ for 39xx & 25$ for 3820), here's the link if anyone else wants it:
So, I managed a safe 24/7 oc with the following setting in BIOS:
Vcore 1.32v (1.346v under load)
LLC 25% (not sure what's the difference between 25% or 50% or auto)
CPU Speed 4.41GHz
RAM Speed 1680 MHz (9-9-9-24-2T)
Temps are high 60's under prime95 (idle temps are high 30's)
Hope this helps anyone and feel free to share advise.
Note: The board is so good....if you mess up in the BIOS and the system fails to boot, no need to open your case and reset cmos or flip a switch or anything, just hit reset/power & the board resets itself for you and reboots asking if you want default settings or keep existing setting and mess around some more...awesome Edited by eXXon - 8/26/12 at 8:37pm
