So now I'm thinking bios. I use the 1850 Beta. Maybe I should try an older bios.
Update: Tried the 1704 bios, still no boot at x50 with PLL Disabled. However, after I flashed 1606 it would boot Windows with it disabled.
As it is now, I really feel the 1704 and 1850 bios has some bugs/issues. I also had some problems when using my 2500K. Where it suddenly became unstable in Prime95 Blend on earlier stable Profiles when using the 1704 and 1850 bios. So for now I will stick to the 1606 bios and see if the stability will stick.
Update2: Got the same problem with the 1606 bios, after a shutdown.
So the times when the higher multipliers work with PLL Disabled, CPU will also get away with a lower Vcore. Even at those lower multipliers.
As you said definitely sounds like the bios, it'll still be a couple months or maybe more before all the bug fixes are recognised by ASUS, it's still early days with this new platform. I suggest going back to a BIOS that basically does the job best, BIOS is still premeture and like I said more fixes will come along soon, till then stay with something that does the job, I don't usually update the bios if my previous bios is working fine.

Screenshot accepted, very nice overclock bud, loving the low voltage.

Thanks to those that have contributed to this fab thread, we're closing in on 100 members. So get posting your stable clocks, share your temps voltage and cooling solutions, so that comparisons can be made accross the board.
