Hi everyone on this great forum. Just registered with overclock.net, been lurking for a while since having this great motherboard which I've had since january this year, so I decided to join.
There is one problem that I can't seem to solve with this mobo and that is just to apply a small overclock simply by raising the cpu's multiplier manually in the bios. I've tried to raise multiplier just to 21.0
from a default 20.0, then save the settings. Sometimes it will show the set clock speed in the bios, but sometimes I'll have to save it twice and when it does stick, it will either not get recognised in windows or reset to default clock speeds in windows after a restart, but will still report the clock speed set in the bios. Odd.
I've tried this with bios versions 0701, 0801, 0901 and the latest 1001 but still no luck. Apart from that it works like a charm at default clock speeds and rock solid stable too.
Anyone got any ideas?

Don't think that there's anything really wrong with the mobo' as everything is rock solid stable at default clocks, etc. But it is quite odd that it just doesn't like even slightly raising the multiplier.
Out of all the bios releases i found 0801 to be the most stable but currently still testing 1001. 1001 did fix the chassis fans to run at set speeds though when resuming from sleep mode, as they used to run at full speed until i restarted
All BIOS versions for it SUCK big time. Voltage calibration messes up every time I change something related to power delivery. Same settings aren't stable every time, it requires tweaking all the time.
