I have set this club to appreciate the legend that is the SR 2.

Anyone who has owned this board knows how tricky it can be to overclock but also knows the results are impressive when you do!
So,lets share results,BIOS settings and the tricks to get the most from this powerhouse.

EVGA SR-2 Specifications

Chipset: Intel 5520
CPU support: 2 x LGA1366 Xeon 5500- and 5600-series
Memory support: 12 slots: max 48GB DDR3 (1,333MHz)
Expansion slots: Seven 16x PCI-E 2.0
Sound: Intel HD Audio via Realtek ALC889 with 8-channel support
Networking: 2 x Marvell 88E8057 Gigabit Ethernet
Ports: 6 x SATA 3Gbps, 2 x SATA 6Gbps, 2 x eSATA 3Gbps, 10 x USB 2, 2 x USB 3, 2 x LAN, 4 x surround audio out, line in, mic

BIOS

Can you please take a screenshot of CPUz/Eleet,record your temps and add any BIOS photos to your post of your OC settings.
Rig pictures are welcome but please remember this is primarily an overclocking resource thread.

Something useful to remember with this board....

Funny you said that becoz I am also using an AX1200 for this red rig. The rig occasionally runs itself into BSOD 124, which I highly suspect that it could have something to do with the PS.

124 is more Vcore.
