Yeah, it's actually pretty easy to kill a motherboard, CPU, pretty much anything due to overclocking, if it's a related system.

I have not broken anything from overclocking, and believe me I push my hardware very hard if you look in my sig.

Yes, but to say that it's really hard to break something as a general statement is still wrong. Remember, every board, every processor, every everything is different. There are no two identical, and that means some units will overclock better than others. Besides, a couple extra hundredths of a volt could kill something if it's already at its brink.

Now you should nave a temperature monitoring program. I like real temp but there are a lot but I will add it to the post.
And you will need a stress testing program. I like prime95 for it's real world like testing. I'll try and find that to but there is a download section that has everything you need. Keep in mind when testing just test for a short time at first until you get close to your goal then stress for longer. Small ftts is the test you will want to run with prime95.
That is one expensive chip so I take no responsibility for your actions. So get to know your specs such as max volts and max temp. Good luck
I am also adding cpu-z.

I tried the settings. I also changed the system memory multiplier to 2.66D. I assume I was supposed to do that since i manually put 400 in mch frequency latch. Is that correct, or should I have left the system memory multiplier on auto.

It booted up and I checked CPUz. It still shows bus speed on cpu tab as 400, fsb 1600 and multiplier fluctuating between 6-8 (same as stock)...showing 3.2ghz. Is this normal?

Also on the memory tab on cpuz, the timings changed to 5-7-7-20 even though I had manually set them in the bios to 5-5-5-15.

I ran 3dmark06 to check some stability. I got to the end of the firefly forest test and it stalled for awhile, then blue screened and rebooted.

I'll keep playing with it. Thanks again for the help getting me started.

When working with OCing your CPU, leave your RAM timings stock to eliminate the possibility that that is causing the instability.

Your multiplier will change, it's called Intel SpeedStep, and it saves power when the CPU isn't being used very heavily. 400FSB is 1600FSB, and 400x8 is 3200MHz. So, all that is right.

In the advance Bios Features you need to Disable some things.
Limit Cupid
No Execute
CPU Enhance Halt
C2/C3E
C4/C4e
CPU Thermal Monitor
EIST Function
Virtualization Tecnology

Use prime95 for stressing small ftts. 3Dmark06 is more for your Graphics.
Once you get a stable O.C. you can start to bring some of the volts down to try and get it to run cooler.

It's not wrong it's true. I realize all equipment is different. My point is it's harder to break something from overclocking then say installing new hardware. Intel say's max volts for my cpu is 1.45v but I have put in 1.52 before and it still works fine. In fact I have put like 1.65 through a chip I still have and it's fine. So yes it is my opinion but it's based on what I have seen.

NoGuru this is what my comparisons are using F10b and F10e

F10e the bad

1) cant go back to previous bios on QFLASH have to do it on FLASHSPI

2) it overwrites your original bios backup to F10e

3) If you go back as on 1) ANY HARD OC will lead to crash bios and F10e comes back

4) lower times on latency in mem lowered my mem from 51,2(F10b) to 52,3(F10e)

F10e the good

1) it likes more the 2,05A multi on my giga UD3P, can run and past tests on my 1200 2x2 Gskills at 1250 CL5 PL9

2) restarts showing more info than on F10b, F10b jumps that POSTs

3) not so many reboot loops as on F10b

4) will not like some hard 8,5 OC i had like 530x8,5 mem at 1272 PL9, it wont boot and load W7 or XP

F10b the bad

1) Still has some reboot loops

F10b the good

1) better latency on mem

2) no problems on 530x8,5 mem at 1272 PL9 i can tun SPi32M perfect and boot without freezing

3) seems more stable for OC

The bad part of all is that we the ones we tried F10b and found it a great bios and the ones we love to OC hard have to deal with the fact that F10e will come back again and again and i asked stasio and so many others how to fix this and there's no reply...It would be great to have F10b as backup also

Yes but I am liking it more now. But I would like to go back to F10b.
What about the newest one I think there is a F11 out?
