Actually, the bios isn't too difficult... *knock on wood*
The EZ clear feature works as advertised I've only had to use it once(as of yet). Currently I've gotten to 345 FSB on 1.39 vCORE. UGH I wish I had a worthy CPU(I pray those intel price cuts are spectacular or someone sells a used quad cheap here), nonetheless I hope to reach or exceed my previous max of 380FSB.
I'm really liking this board, it's every bit as fast as my QuadGT in SPI, actually so far it's proven to be 1/10th of a second faster in 1m runs between 2.7ghz-3.1ghz.
Does 12496 pts in 3D mark 06 sound about right for an e4300 @ 3.1ghz and a stock 8800gts(G92)? Sorry, I'm a futuremark noob, I was too ashamed to run it when I had my good old 7600gt
Booted up successfully @ 360FSB -> 1.44 vCORE
Gonna test for bench stability then prime95, assuming temps stay inline.
360FSB was bench SPI32M and 3dmark06 stable...
Testing 370FSB now, ->1.47 vCORE; I think I may be applying more volts than is even needed ATM. I'm might just push my luck and shoot for 1.5vCORE and 400FSB if 370 is bench stable...
370 -> 1.47 vCORE = reboot on 3dmark06 now trying with 1.488... I need a new CPU, I feel like that guy who has a Camaro and thinks he's bad arse even though it's a V6...
Oh well 370FSB + 1.488 vCORE has proven 100% bench stable, 3dmark06 is up to 12916... Gonna OC the GPU now, I'll try for 400FSB on a cold mourning.
