I don't think there'd be so many complaints if it just was that simple. tongue.gif What I can say for sure is that loading optimized defaults can make timings show as being set to auto, but they don't always revert for me.

I don' really see it as a big issue, either. ASUS Extreme boards aren't meant to be plug-and-play in my books tongue.gif

So only with a lonely NZXT Havik 140 I got a nice juicy 4.5ghz on 1.29v Super Stable on Intel Burn Test with a max temp of 84'C.

Need my watercooling gear to arrive.... I am smelling a possible minimum overclock of 4.7ghz (Aiming for 4.9ghz if possible).

Oh btw... Loving the motherboard!

It is really that simple. You must set strap 125 or above to run 2400mhz+. Check your voltage readings as well. This will give a good baseline to go off of. You don't just go in and start punching in random numbers for offset. You take a look at your stock VID and do a bit of math. Same deal. Try some different clocks on auto and it gives you a good idea of what you'll need for a manual overclock, with a few tweaks here and there to get better efficiency. Each chip is a little different.

I guess you didn't see me posting BIOS screenshots with my stable settings. It's not that easy with every chip. Intel sent me three chips to play with, only one works well in this board. There is a slight chance that PSU was the cause.

1000% the BIOS needs work for 24/7 users. P9X79 Deluxe, RIVE, other boards are not as problematic as this one is. That said, we've had only a couple of BIOSes, and only one for you guys. My motherboard doesn't even have a serial number. My box is also different than yours. tongue.gif

No offense, man, but I feel that posts like your give users the wrong impression. The board is fantastic, but it does require a fair bit of knowledge (or with lack of knowledge, time spent tweaking stuff individually) to get maximum clocks out of.

No doubt, it takes some knowledge and some time spent to get a good oc. I agree we need a bios update. But, sometimes flashing a bunch of settings doesn't help. Basics. That's all I'm saying. Agreeing with you on a lot of what you're saying. Sometimes a little hope goes a long way is all.

Of course. You're one of the lucky ones using memory that has a profile in BIOS (high-bin PSC), where with 8 GB DIMMs, there's just...well..nothing. tongue.gif The board is tuned for benching, obviously, and every memory stick a bencher wants to use works, and works well. Hynix and Samsung 4 GB DIMMs dual-sided, no problem. Single-sided...still need some work as well. I'm used to pushing over 3400 MHz pretty easily... and I can bench there, no problem...long-term stable, no. P9X79 Deluxe...believe it or not...is stable where this board isn't.

The auto rules are actually more to my personal liking, rather than what ASUS would normally do, with fairly tight auto settings and extra voltage. XMP on P9X79 is far tighter than on RIVBE...RIVBE gives better clock-per-clock performance even with "looser" settings, I think. I'd even be happy with those issues being present as it's required to get better benches...but not everyone has bought this board for benching only.

Those other two chips I have...man, in this board..they are a waste of time. not even 4.4 GHz. P9X79 Deluxe...4.6 GHz, no problem. It's really interesting.

running all 8 dimms @ any speed is a major strain on the IMC. It's going to require allot more voltage than those of us with 16, or 32gb of rams. I would keep bumping up the volts .05 @ a time. The 4xxx CPU will be your best bet.

Hopefully Asus gives us a new bios soon.

I believe a major part of the issue is average users buying what they think is the best and loading up on the memory for average workstation use. This a BENCHERS motherboard. Period. That's what it was designed for. That's what I bought it for.

This is the memory I finely went with and I hope it works out good. tongue.gif There was no reviews on egg yet probably because it's newer G.Skill that was just released a couple months back anyhow G.Skill recommends it for the 4930k and the 4960x on the Asus black IV.
