Dunno why the audio is so much better but the bass and treble both seem superior, I was blown away by the clarity.

This is great to hear. I've put a lot of thought into whether to get this or wait for the G1 Sniper 3 and one of the main reasons was audio. That said, the sniper 3 is considerably more expensive and I'm just not sure the Creative Core3d audio chip is worth the extra money. I think I'll save myself the extra loot and go with the UD5H. It seems to me that they both use the same power regulations so the UD5H should overclock just as well.

I'm really hoping these minor issues get worked out quickly though. I don't really want to deal with any issues such as overclock settings being erased after a crash. Honestly I'll probably end up ordering it tomorrow.

Im not sure what type of OC your trying to get out of it, but even on stock cooling im pretty sure you can easily get to 4 ghz by following online guides. These 1155's are very easy to overclock. But I suppose if your not very familiar with BIOS, that could be a problem.
Sin does a pretty damn good job of providing BIOS screenshots of everything in order to make it all clear.
Just make sure you use the right RAM multiplier for your setup (looks like your running 1333? so a 13x) and use less volts if you only want say a 4 ghz OC.
I have to say, i didn't know anything about this board until I read reviews online. I havn't overclocked anything since summer of 09... but with some guides, these boards are super easy to use.

im running 1600

power is my big problem, i have no effing clue what i should be setting my power settings, pll, all that stuff to.

im hoping someone might want to mentor me on this board. maybe its because i have strep right now. i dunno, but im not understanding all these damned power settings at all. let alone what they should be set to for a 2500k

With 1600 RAM, set your RAM multi to 16, and as far as power settings go, like which? I don't have a huge amount of experience, but I was able to get my 2600k to 4.5 easily, much easier than I expected in fact. but for the power settings, like the things under the 3D power control section?

Also, what GHz are you looking for? I can try and tell u what settings would work per a certain GHz.

i was hoping for at least 4.5, hell with my cooling and setup i had it in my head 4.8-5 would have been possible but i dunno now.

what stock temps also should i be shooting for under load for daily use?

take a look at my rig

I really don't know all that much about RAM and stuff, but I have used IBT on a 100% stable PC and have had it fail. My current i7 920 fails with IBT under certain settings, but passes prime 95 for days without a problem, and has bluescreen on me one or twice since summer of 09, and this is my main computer, I use it for hours every day. So, I would almost say, try testing with something else?
