Moderate OC suggestion

Here´s a moderate OC suggestion that I have so you can get started.

400 9 3,6GHz 1600 777 21 Strong tRD5 (this one is a real sweet spot when use bus 400 and ram @ 1600, if you want know why, read this post)

Tested with BIOS 1202, Q9650, 2x2 OCZ Platinum LV PC3-12800 (1600C7) and GTX 285.

If people run different BIOS, cpu and/or ram configuration some volt values have to be alter.

People in this thread that run other configurations can give suggestion to what changes has to be done.

I thought it was coming in this Friday Rob ?.

"Don't talk like one of them. You're not! Even if you'd like to be. To them, you're just a freak, like me! They need you right now, but when they don't, they'll cast you out, like a leper! You see, their morals, their code, it's a bad joke. Dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these... these civilized people, they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve."

I have told him on numerous occasions, that he makes it mighty hard for anyone to play catch-up.

I may be getting this board. the Maximus Extreme is such a tempermental board. i constantly have issues with it. Mainly the RAM. I hope that the Rampage Extreme is better.

I am curious to see how easy the tweak-it controls are to access with 2 gpus installed.

Rob, you are one lucky man. Now get that watercooling system built.

EDIT: that is a very nice looking board.

Next on the list. I particularly like the fact that the swiftech water block will fit on the NB without any modifications
