    No way! Auto overclock is like Helen Keller riding a motorcycle while juggling chainsaws in a mall!

And for everyone who's not paying attention let me summarise it for you.
-I'm going for 4.0ghz for now.
-I'm a first time Overclocker
-Auto OC is done in UEFI(or BIOS if you must)
-Auto OC is well conceived by other users
-Hard to research as answers I seek is very specific on new technology
-I'd read the Newegg reviews but it has been taken down
If you wanted an auto-overclock feature you picked the wrong motherboard. The only review that I read that actually got decent overclocks from the auto overclocking function was the MSI boards with OC genie. Even Asus' auto overclocking options is crap and no match for MSI's auto-overclocking features because they have been doing the OC genie feature longer since 2009 I believe.

But what you can do is use the auto-overclock then tweak the voltage and settings from there. The overclock feature never works well they always give you way too much voltage for little gain. I used the auto-overclock feature once on the Asus board it gave me 4.4Ghz overclock and 1.4v, voltage is way too high for 4.4Ghz and also tweaked my BCLK for me which I didn't really want to touch yet. But the auto-overclock feature will change your BCLK values which is really not recommended for Sandy Bridge. The highest I have read that someone got on BCLK is about 107 but the range is more like 105-107 if you're lucky enough to even get there.

Software can do amazing things sometimes but overclocking is not one of them.

ok so i have a msi gd65 that i am building for a client, gave me everything and told me to build. The processor sucks, the retail d2 stepping he has, wont go hgher than 5.0ghz with cpou pll on. Anyways so i also have a p67a-ud7 and two D1 ES processors. I put the 4.8ghz on in the gd65 and pressed OC genie, it did two things i liked and one thing i hated.

It raised cpu frequency to 4.2ghz
It raised dram frequency to 2133mhz(rated speeds)
It raised vcore to 1.35v

Vcore to 1.35? at 4.5ghz this chip automatically asks for 1.35v. I could have automatically raised the CPU ratio to 45x instead of 42x and gotten a stable 4.5ghz oc. Of cour se i would have also raised the Dram speeds because it does 2133 at 1.5v but oc genie Over set that voltage as well to 1.53.
