    For some reason my EIST option keeps disappearing on me (gigibyte board in my specs). It's odd, I'll go in there to oc, and turn the thermal stuff off for benching, but C1E and TM2 are the only ones there, I go back again to return to my normal clock and there all 3 of them are. No hidden options as far as I know other than memory, and those are all activated, any ideas as to what may be causing this? Simple bios corruption perhaps? Due for a re-flash? F11 is the one I'm on too (not the latest, but the one needed for the initial wolfies back in december).

    Perhaps your board desactivates EIST for stable overclocking... while overclocking.
    farlex85 says thanks.

    Edit: Actually I think you may be right. I set everything to stock and the option re-appeared. Oc'd it again and it was gone. Good call, I didn't think that could be the case though as I haven't had it at stock for a while, but perhaps during a failed oc or something........
