Hey everyone:

Posting with my new hardware for the first time (hardware in the signature rig, even though the picture is of my old x58 hardware).

Looking for some advice on the overclocking on this combo of motherboard, CPU and RAM. I've never dealt with a UEFI BIOS before, and the only changes I've made on my mobo BIOS is to update the BIOS, modify boot order for my PCI-E SSD, and enable a pre-configured XMP profile to run my RAM at its stock timings and 2400MHz speed.

I'm concerned that if I begin muddling around with multipliers on my CPU, I'll lose the stable 2400HMz settings I currently use with my RAM.

Any advice on OCing the 3820 while maintaining the 2400MHz speed on my RAM?
