I just purchased a Biostar TA890GBX-HD and I can't for the life of me, figure out how to manually OC the thing. I have a x555 BE and I don't even see anywhere I can change the multiplier at all. The ASUS bios is well laid out, but this Biostar one is like Greek to me. Does anyone have a couple of clues to drop on me? Thx.

Go to the "t-Series" tab
Overclock Navigator to manual
Go to CPU FID/VID Control,
Custom P-States to Enabled......

LET IT RIP
Thanks mucho amigo:thumb: It's not bad but I do have one more question.Is there anyway to select either core 3 or 4 individually? I know my x555 has a bad 3rd core?

yeah I saw that. It seems like the setting in green is like the offset in ASUS, and the other is the normal steps.

Easy....

Advanced
CPU Config
Core Leveling (change to manual) -they start with Core0 not Core1 so........
-Core1=Core0
-Core2=Core1
-Core3=Core2 (DISABLE ME)
-Core4=Core3

Ok. So the bios ain't that bad. She's runnin close to my ASUS M4A89TD-M Pro with the exception of the ram. The VRM's aren't sinked but I do have a 200mm side fan that should cool just about anything in front of it. Thanks again +1

Not that I will, but why not non T series? Cheaper parts used?

The VRM on the non-T series are not has good as the T-series and the T-series is the top of the line for biostar.
