Okay I will read it fully. But there's features on this mobo I have never seen mentioned before. The very first thing I see in AI TWEAKER is CPU Level Up. I have 3 options in this. Auto, i7 975 3.33g and i7 CRAZY - 3.70. I'm assuming I leave this on auto...

I am sure you put a lot of work into that. Nice.
yes typically 1.45 but not strictly as that was just a intel published misdenoma before eany extensive testing or tens of thousands of real world examples .. just need to keep in mind memory type/speed, cpu type and temps etc.. anyone that says it's nuts though just doesn't have the facts - period.. esp as some memory nees 1.6 to be stable @2000 for example.. and that is fact.. also enough time has passed to prove there is no degredation (in specific instances).

the way i look at it also (which is common to OCers) if it last 18-36 months without degredation then it's a goer.. othewise well just stay stock becuase anything above might be scary ooow

thanks dude, yeah a labour of love lol.. not as tidy as some but i guess a precursor to my next build which will blow some pants off (so to speak

That guide really helped, thanks Papa. After an hour or so of my system failing to boot, I found the culprit. I have to remove my flash drive or BIOS reads my saved files and won't boot up. This is what I have so far after running prime95 for an hour or so. So close to 4.0!!! Yes I'm very excite!

You need to be thanking cigarbug not me. HE's the one who found and posted it. I just seconded that you needed to read it.

Ride the Spiral, just curious why you are not using a higher multiplier. May help you get to 4+ GHz.

I got it to 4.0 last night and the PC freezes when I run Prime95. I'll try the multiplier now, not to mention I don't think I set my DIMM clocks properly. They're at 9-9-9-24 and I'm at a stable 3.8
