Lol i didn't see this thread as I have been really busy. Any input for my guide?
The only part that I decided to change and test was that I did not disable all of the power savers like EIST and C1E, etc. I know you and some others say it might make the OC unstable but I thought I would give it a try because my computer is on a lot (though not usually overnight) and I don't know how much energy it saves but I thought why not save if I can. Also, people using the ASUS boards I think had to keep these enabled from what I remember reading so I thought perhaps it is OK.
I also read about some having success with lowering PLL to 1.76v. You may have seen that thread. You mentioned to keep it at stock so I never did try any changes. I am not sure if I did lower PLL if I could then use lower Vcore as some in that thread noticed.
I did try some changes to QPI and DRAM Voltage when I tried to OC my RAM but then the BIOS would always give me OC error messages so I gave up OC my RAM. It still confuses me why my OC RAM passed Memtest+ but then failed in P95. I wonder what explanation there is for that. Something that happens when the CPU, motherboard and RAM work together?
Anyway, I am happy right now and I thank you for all you have done.
