[QUOTE=Patch;6112855]This looks like it might be the money BIOS page. QUOTE]

No luck. The BIOS page I was looking at wasn't really that helpful - it was just to enable or disable PCIE slots....

Still no luck getting past 221. But I did find that upping the IOH voltage to 1.38ish and upping th SB voltage some made the system more stable and I got to do some WPrime benching in the higher 4.5-4.6 Ghz range.

Got an extra 20 points on HWbot last night.

They just released the new version of the Classified too, without the NF200 set, supposedly the NB runs a ton cooler, not sure which of the 2 models to get if I decide to try em out.

Price difference is negligable, $430 to $400.

I think you guys buying the Classified are nuts. Even if I had the cash to buy one I just could justify the extra 100-150 for all of 2% performance increase, and a 1.5% increase in the OC. I agree that it look amazing and I would love to have one, but it hold zero advantage over the Bloodrage. Not to mention I think EVGA subcontracted it out to Foxconn. I could be wrong about that but I do know that Foxconn DOES make many EVGA, XFX, products not to mention several other manufacturers products.

I have been having good luck with my system, and I am getting the tweaking bug again. I want to see if I can 4.2GHz stable enough for benchies. I have it verified with CPUz but definitely wasn't stable LOL.

I love my Bloodrage and it's staying in my main rig. It's given me awesome stable clocks and it's a pleasure to overclock. Don't get me wrong, I ain't baggin on the board at all.

But, its baseclock maxes out at 221. I have yet to see anyone anywhere get over 222 baseclock with a bloodrage. A few other boards do. I might get one of them to play around with DICE. That's all.

Everyone has an e-peen, some are just larger than others.

Also - I'm in the unique spot that BOTH of my Motherboards have had issues. Asus P6T + Foxconn BloodRage, typically unless I'm godly impressed with a product, if it's defective out of the box for me, I'm not getting another one of the same kind. So I'm stuck, I may be making the mistake of thinking $$ = Quality, which is not always the case, but I'm sick of motherboards being issues for me, and I want to get my rig set up, sealed in my case, not to be re-opened again for a long while.

That's the main reason I am contemplating the Classified. I may yet get another Blood Rage, however my board has not been very stable either, maybe it's the DIMM not working right impacting other areas, but this thing refuses to hit 4.0 while stable in any sense of the word regardless of how many volts I pump into it, so I'm just torn on what to do right now.

If you have a C0 processor it might not get 4Ghz stable no matter how much tweaking you do. Put it on eBay and snag a D0. You will be much happier I promise.

There is nothing wrong with the Blood Rage I just like the community around the Classified and no one is disputing the fact that it is a work of art and the best MB out at this time. Yes it's expensive but it is worth the money imho.

I could run 4.0 on my ASUS P6T - only thing that held me back was temps, once I got the megahalem the temps were much, much better, and I was able to run 4.0 stable with hyperthreading on @ 1.33-1.35V no problem.
