Okay then, but don't say I didn't warn you. I had that board. It caught FIRE at stock settings (mine was version 1.3). It took me SEVEN MONTHS to get a solution from Gigabyte's crappy customer service. They kept sending me dead burnt up boards back as replacements. I had to FILE A LAWSUIT, to get my money back out of that crappy board.
If you want, here you go:
Up the reference clock. Keep the HT as close to 2000 as possible. Keep the NB clock under 2400 or so (you can up this later). Keep the RAM as close to stock as possible. Apply voltage when needed. Don't pass 55*C load temp on the CPU.
