    To add to the stories... it's doing well considering it's a stock heatsink and fan. Running prime continuously at 4.4. Starts to fail above that, but after a few hours. Haven't gone above the 1.272v mark. Loosened memory timings.

    I'm going to hold off on more volts till this is under H2O in my other case.

    If you can't get that to 5 ghz under good cooling I'll be sad.
    Sasqui says thanks.

    What temps you get under load? They've gotta be close to scorching.

    Me thinks I'll do that next, bump the chip multiplier down to 9 and see what this thing can do.

    This is Fitseries3 old ASUS Maximus Formula with Rampage BIOS. A few puzzling quirks in it, but I'm impressed.

    Way better than expected... I need to re-check the box, but the shipping note had Q822A430 in it.

    Any sub-forums for the ASUS Maximus/Rampage series? I got questions.

    Wow, I'm tired today, up till 1am messing with it :cool:

    Just start a thread in the Mobo area. I'm sure fit and others will teach you more than you ever wanted to know about that board. :laugh:
