A little update on my "overclocking" adventure.
Downloaded the f8g bios from tweaktown and now I can boot with overclocked settings,
BUT only if I set the overclock in EZ-tune first (regardless of setting and then modifying it in bios)
Sometimes it boots, sometimes it does not. 5ghz might boot and work flawlessly until I restart the pc, and 3.9 might need 10 attempts.
Can`t seem to spot the factor that is causing this irregular behaviour, but I am a n00b Intel oc`er so there might be something obvious that I have missed.
Point being, the f8g bios is atleast letting me boot settings other than optimized defaults.
Does anyone else have a problem with the mobo rebooting 4-5 times with a sandybrigde cpu?
