Well I found out a few tricks to overclock this board thanks to AIAD64, I noticed that the speed step was enabled even though I had it disabled, once I enabled it in the bios the board let me push it on up now sitting @ 3.3ghz and I stress tested it for 6 hours and never got above Tc@60c and all cores running about 60c~70c! I am still going to replace the board got a RMA from ASUS but I am just glad to see it get up over the 3ghz mark lol! I am no where a expert at this stuff but if anyone having problems with this board and the Intel Q9550 I have gone over all settings and read about every trick and article from 2007 till date! I think I should put in a app to work at ASUS lol NOT!!!! I do really like playing with computers but this board has made me study way to much stuff about these things. But as I said willing to help now that I got my Problem figured out.
P.S. I also have figured out the pencil mod and done it to this board and it did nothing for me, but that is not saying that it would not work for others!
