Im not using OC genie atm, i did when i first got the board and it worked very well with 1.2 bios. Ran at 3.76 flawlessly, i now overclock it on my own. I have tried every bios i can find from shipping to 1.6b3 with the exact same result. Each bios beyond 1.2 with this memory will give me "last overclock failed" even if there is "no oc at all". Im guessing its specific to this memory, i havnt seen anyone else have an issue with the profile enabled. I just have this feeling i could get more out of the system with an upgraded bios, i see countless people getting 4.2 and above with this board and i7 950 and i can get right at 4.0 and be stable.
