However, there are only 3 booting ASUS processes, none of them are called or have anything to do with, to my knowledge, AI suite. I tried disabling them, and they just disabled on board USB functionality and sound drivers to onboard audio, AI suite still booted. There isn't even any where to disable it, aside from uninstalling it. I also think that the "extreme over volt" option might throttle back voltages, regardless of whether you intend to go "extreme" or not. As soon as you hit 1.5 I think (judging by the cpu led turning from orange to red) the MB considers it "extreme". But anyways....Ill look up more tomorrow, im tired.
btw...1.514v and 4100 failed linx after 30 passes. 19 degrees idle, 60 degrees load....wonder why. It wasnt your typical lin-x fail with the red error on the window, it just froze windows. I don't intend to go any higher for a good 24/7 overclock, however.
My highest stable verified clock now is 4010 at 1.452v with ram (stock 1333) 1610mhz (888-24) at 1.6v, cpu-nb 2880 at 1.3v. idle 18 load 56 deg.
Ok, so heres what I know now. I deleted AI suite, it appeared to have no effect. I can change any settings EXCEPT cpu voltage and have it take effect when I boot up. However, to actually be able to have my new vcores take effect, I have to clear cmos, 99 percent of the time, then go back, load the preset i was working off of, then up the voltage a step. It has to actually do that thing where the computer shuts off for a second or two, then turns back on. this is wierd. I miss my old MSI bios :-(
