As a side note, I went to try my coolit aio and it looks like the pump is dead. I guess that what I get for the 10$ TD special I got a while back. I'll have to see if there's any other decent heat sinks around. So far I'm stuck at 4.5ghz @ 1.29 because the temps are at my ceiling with the stock hsf and my scythe.

You might want to ask him, or look that board up for it's overclocking capability, it sounds like he can overclock on that board.
Yes, I am overclocking on the msi b85 gaming. I suspect that since this was a capability before Intel apparently said "no" the reason for many of the manufacturers releasing a BIOS update within the past two weeks was to allow for the anniversary edition overclocking. If you can boot with the cpu but not overclock, you might need a bios update or to take a quick read of the manual.
Has anyone test the updated bios on a non z97 board for overclocking anything other than the anniversary pentium?
