Sin0822 wrote some really good threads on using it HERE. and HERE.

Yeah, heh. Funny thing about the board is that I found it randomly on eBay, and I proceeded to Google it. It seemed like a top of the line board, and was really expensive. The guy who was selling it on eBay had it BIN for half the retail price, so I just bought it on impulse. I just thought to myself, "Hey, it's pretty expensive, so it must be good".

Back on topic, I ran the prime95 test for 12 hours with no BSOD/errors. My temps seem to have normalized also; I think the reason they were pretty high yesterday while idle was because I had just overclocked the CPU minutes before.

Another question: The voltage seems to fluctuate between 1.344, 1.356, and 1.368 on CPU-Z. Is that normal? The Vcore was set to 1.37 in BIOS. It never fluctuated in CPU-Z before the OC.
