I had a little time last night so I was able to flash my BIOS, went to version 1002 and that opened up a few more options. the only thing I did was set the FSB to 1333 and set the memory unlinked to 1:1 and it hit 3.0ghz, I didn't need to adjust any voltages, yet. I am going to need to tweek some things. I had to put my old memory back in,( some old A-Data ) and the timmings were 5-5-5-32 t2 so I am ordering new RAM today and will play with the timmings and get them to 4-4-4-12. My son woke up so I didn't get any time to do much stress testing, or to run any bench marks. Temps seemed fine, but I am going to get another fan to suck more air into the case. Is EVEREST good enough to be checking temps? Now I have a question, is that little watercooler I have enough to keep things cool if/when I start pushing things up even more? I think I my drop the water and go to air. Now that all of you have got me hooked on overclocking ( my wife says thanks race cars, archery werent enough) I want to get a new motherboard, and a faster processor. So what are your thoughts and suggestions.
