Ouch
The two times I had to clear the BIOS I just flipped the PS switch, set the jumper on the back for about 10 seconds and put it back and powered right up.

Here's a guide that kinda goes a little in depth about some of the features in the genie bios:

This is the most complicated bios I've ever worked with, so many confusing things...

no problem, it cleared up a few things for me but I'm having trouble getting stable around 475 fsb. Still working on it..

Wow, that summed up just about everything TheCh3F, thanks for the link. I'm able to get 3.6GHz (450x8) stable with my new quad, anything higher than a 450 fsb requires lots more voltage on the northbridge and vtt, even then I can't seem to get it stable. I'm happy with 3.6GHz though.

very nice man... i am still struggling to get 3.6 stable but perhaps i'll find the right combo on my days off here.

I hope that I can help you guys out on reaching higher FSB's. For the longest time I was stuck at 450 and then 475, now I am stuck at 500. When I was stuck at 450 I had to adjust the Vtt to 1.25, the NB to 1.46, the SB I moved up one notch. I set my Vcore to 1.45, and all the RAM setting outside the first four latencies to auto. The fine delays were all set to current, and all CPU feature are disabled, along with Vdroop control.

Now the most important thing is that I had to adjust my GTL voltages. I lowered the CPU to the bottom number (.661X I believe).

Sorry to cut us short but something just came up I will edit my post in detail tonight, so check in sorry GTG.

So, here is some good info to help you achieve higher overclocks

Firstly, I will share my personal BIOS settings for 3.8GHz operation.
(I do 3.8 because, that is seemingly the most average spot where chips stop at.)

Genie BIOS Settings
Exit Setup Shutdown: Mode 2
Shutdown After AC Loss: Disabled
OC Fail Retry Counter: 0
CPU Clock Ratio: 9
CPU N/2 Ratio: Disabled
Target CPU Clock: 3807
CPU Clock: 423
Boot Up Clock: 335 (NOTE: Set this to the origional FSB that the cpu was at with its origional multi so it boots through post at origional clock speed. I keep 335 b/c origional was 333 for 3000MHz)
CPU Clock Amplitude: 800mV
CPU Clock 0 Skew: 0ps
CPU Clock 1 Skew: 0ps
DRAM Speed: 333/800
Target DRAM Speed: 1016
PCIE Clock: 110

CPU Spread Spectrum: Disabled
PCIE Spread Spectrum: Disabled

CPU Feature:
Thermal Management Control: Disabled
PPM(EIST) Mode: Disabled
Limit CPUID MaxVal: Disabled
C1E Function: Disabled
Virtualization Technology: Disabled
Core Multi-Processing: Enabled

DRAM Timing:
Enhance Data Transmitting: Fast
Enhance Addressing: Fast
T2 Dispatch: Disabled

Clock Settings Fine Delay:
Leave all settings in here at their defaults and change the following:

Channel 1 CLK: More Aggressive
Channel 2 CLK: More Aggressive
CH1CH2 Common CLK: More Aggressive

ALSO: If you notice that your timings sag, make sure to set those manually in the DRAM section as well

Voltage Settings:
CPU VID Special Add: Auto
DRAM Voltage Control: 2.100V (This is Per memory brand)
SB Core/CPU PLL Voltage: 1.51
NB Core Voltage: 1.555V (Dont be scared to set it at this on the stock NB heatsink. It will be okay . If you want to go higher, it is imperative you have a fan on the heatsink or have WC.)
CPU VTT Voltage: 1.300 (Be weary with the 45nm chips guys!)
Vcore Droop Control: Disabled (This will literally make the difference from being stable to not being stable)
Clockgen Voltage Control: 3.45V
CPU GTL 0/2 REF Volt: 0.667X
CPU GTL 1/3 REF Volt: 0.667X
North Bridge GTL REF Volt: 0.67X


I just typed this up quickly and, i still dont understand the above ref volt things..if anyone knows about those..please do tell

Thanks--

has anyone else had a problem installing XP on a single drive here? I keep getting bluescreens as soon as setup originally says "starting windows" and right after it initializes the mouse and keyboard.
