Thread Starter 
i'm trying to overclock the my sig rig. but when i go into my BIOS the only CPU related setting I can change is the multiplier. I disabled SpeedStep and C1E but I still can't access anything else. Can someone enlighten me?

Hi.

The Asus Bios' that I have seen are all pretty much the same. You should be able to access the Advanced tab for CPU Frequency, DRAM frequency, etc...




...and this for RAM timings:

I know where to go to change the settings, i just don't know what to change to ALLOW me to do so. I can change RAM timings fine but I'm looking to overclock the CPU and right now all the settings are locked (grayed out)
