No. As stated here: http://www.techreaction.net/2011/02/...on-a-budget/2/, this board has a ton of OCing headroom. Extracting that headroom is tricky and some of the settings are deceiving. But once you're solid, this board has no issues.

Follow this and beast out: http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/cpu...ore-i5-2500k/4 The VTT voltage change and System agent voltage changes are the key. I can hit 5.2 on 1.12 VTT.

Depending on the memory you may not need to touch the VTT, with 1600Mhz memory I can hit 5.5Ghz at stock 1.05 VTT.
I did mess with system agent a bit, but doesn't seem to make any difference to overclocking. I just leave it at auto.

Interesting, I can't get near stability without those changes. What are your settings and what BIOS #?

Using the f3d bios right now on the b3 ud4. Not sure about my long term stability, did a 1 hr prime run at 5Ghz here
Just set the LLC to enable, set the vcore, upped the bclk a touch since it came up 99.8 at stock, put in the memory timings & speed, & disabled the power saving options.
Everything else on auto.

Well done. I'll give that a try tonight on f3d. I'll bump my volts as well.
