great work Steve! I'm sure its going to be greatly appreciated!! Thx man.
EDIT: wow.....talk about comprehensive! No wonder this took a while for you to release. There's a lot of hard work there, especially on breaking the more advanced theory down into more easily understandable principles. Excellent guide so far as I'm into it, I was just impressed enough I had to come back and say thanks immediately. Again great guide Steve, for begginers or veterans.
Yea man you are welcome.

Of course I can keep the system always on 4600 but it is not the way it should be, I guess I even have this problem is stock. What component most likely causes this problem? CPU? Motherboard? eh..Windows 7?
There are some power plan things in windows 7, there is some places where you need to set low CPu state to 100% or else the power saving modes and 7 might not let the CPU back up to max speed, I am not sure where it is. Perhaps someone who had the same issue could chime in, otherwise I will look for it.

Will try Elpida memory, however G.Skill worked for 2 years in my old system without any problem.
What is really weird that it was working fine for about two weeks. I played games , photoshop. video editing...
A lot of your BDOS are memory related, can you try to increase the vDIMM to 1.65v manually, don't set XMP just manually increase it to 1.65v.
Also there is something people should know, if you are getting lower OCes or less stability with these latest BIOSes it might be because GBT fixed the issue where the UNcore multiplier wasn't raising above its max turbo of 39x, now it should be able to set higher. You need to increase vRing or set Uncore to 35x it should help.
Haswell is a bit complicated to OC, i know, however I have a UD5H on the bench now to try and see if I can replicated any of your two issues. You guys are both new users right? Just registered to post here? Can you also fill in your RIG specs for everyone to see? Thanks. I can't help unless I can also see your PSU and everything else. PSU makes a big difference as well, if something works for 2 weeks and then doesn't, that can be a lot of things including PSU which likes to cause instability, and those usually come randomly in the form of memory BDOSes or CPU BDOSes. .
