However I must add, use at your OWN risk. All you have to do is basically load in one of these profiles and you have the easiest OC ever!
To use a profile you will need to open it take the file without extension inside the .RAR and place it on a thumb-drive formatted in FAT32 and then go into your BIOS and load profile from the USB drive.
THis is a .RAR with all the UD3H profiles, it contains a bunch of profiles each in their own .RAR
The vcore is set a bit higher just to make sure the system boots, users can always go decrease the vcore.
First you have the 45G&1600mhz
this is a 4.5ghz OC with 1600mhz XMP profile loaded. I think the Vcore is around 1.3v and you can always lower it.
Next there is the 45GwithDVID
which is a 4.5ghz OC with DVID and power savings enabled, i think vcore is together at max 1.3v, you can always lower the vcore
Next there is the CPUOC
and thus is just made for high CPU oc without memory OC done to it.
Next you have CPUOCwinXP
which is same as the one above, but designed for the system to deal with Windows XP, so HDD/SSD is in IDE mode and the xHCI is set to auto instead of smart auto.
Next you have LN2 profile,
which is designed for LN2 cooling, it doesn't' have a high OC, but it does have stock BCLK higher than 100 and all power savings maxed out.
Next you have memoryfreq
which is the timings loosened for high memory frequency, it is set for cas11, if you want cas12 you will need to change tWL to 9 or 10, i forget. I used this memory profile to take my DDR3 2000mhz cas 9 to 2700 and then i tighten the 3rd timings first and then move onto the other timings.
Upgrade from Z68 to Z77? Sure you would be upgrading, but by how much and how many gains is up to you(they aren't that big from sandy to ivy). You probably wont notice a difference in terms of speed in windows. IMO keep your current rig and you will be fine.
