The unlocked multiplier of the 875k cpu goes up only to 14x, even with the Turbo Unlocker engaged. The Turbo Unlocker has to be manually engaged with each boot.
Since I will have to replace this later, I should have gotten the cheapest Gigabyte board and used that until the GA P55A-UD3P Rev 2 comes out. This As.s board is a total waste, in function and approach. I'd never buy another board from them.
But this is all OT, and I apologize for introducing the topic.
Ive owned 2 Asus boards, and both of them have been very intuitively designed as far as layout and bios goes. Sucks that your having so much trouble with the one you got. Perhaps its not the fault of the board, just the fact that your not used to the layout. If you owned Gigabyte boards in the past, most likely youve become very accustomed to them, and they are completely different animals when it comes down to the bios.
Have any pics as to how it fits into your case? Just curious to see how much of the mobo tray it takes up.
