Well I pulled everything apart, bench tested everything and it all worked. Threw it back in the case and I'm currently installing windows smile.gif

Don't know what was wrong and right now I don't care!! Just got my first look at the new bios and it was hard to to oc to 4.6 to install windows but I left it alone. I'll update later with som results smile.gif

Appreciate it!
This is the best guide i ever found for the P67 Asus Bios.

I do have one question though... I happened to buy a X-Fi Fatal1ty sound card recently and was wondering how the onboard sound compares to the Fatal1ty sound. I'd like to recover some of the money I spend on this EXPENSIVE mobo, but if the sound could be better, then I guess I'll stick with it.

I'm not really an audiophile, but a "scale 1-10" response comparing the two would greatly help me out. Thoughts?
I have not had an issue with the sound and i am using an 8 yr old surround sound system when i am not using my headphones. Still awesome sounding to me with 5 PC speakers and a subwoofer, it's a Logitech sound system.

Jobotoo,

This video may be of some help to you.


Hope you find it useful. I'm in the same situation as you are.

It's really easy to OC the Maximus.

To reach 5.1, here's what I did. Rock-stable, 24/7. 12.04 BIOS.

-Multi All cores 51x
-Manual v core: 1.42v
-LLC 75%
-VRM frequency Manual, 350
-Phase Control Extreme
-Duty control Extreme
-Intel PLL overvoltage Auto
-RAM timings and voltage: manual

Everything else at ''Auto''.

Rock-stable. Can't make that mobo crash. Was able to do Prime 8 hours, LinX 20 passes. Everything except the kitchen sink. It won't crash.

I was able to easily reach 5.4 at 1.49v. But I'm not confortable 24/7 at that voltage.

So I game at 5.1 1.42v and do my work, Photshop, etc at 4.8 @ 1.34v (really low voltage).

You do know it's more Dependant on the chip than the mobo right?

Mostly, but a better motherboard with more power phases usually results in a more stable higher clock.

I'm not stupid. I know. But people were asking for some help to config the Maximus, and what settings to use.

So I just made a list of what I did. Wha's wrong with that?
