    fit is fucking pissed. PITA mobo doesnt like to OC very easily. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too many options in the bios.

    i can get 4.2ghz to run on all auto but it wont bench. it has to be close cause it just stops... not freezes.

    Sorry man. You'll get it worked out, and you'll be better for it. Kinda like looking at a DFI genie bios for the first time...:laugh:

    who wants to help me out here?

    this is what all auto gives me for 4ghz....

    4ghz auto
    cpu = 1.42
    qpi = 1.363
    pll = 1.812
    dram = 1.56
    ioh i_h = 1.508
    ioh = 1.131
    ich i_s = 1.508
    ich = 1.111

    i bumped the cpu to 1.45v and retesting but damn this thing is being a total PITA

    EDIT: dammit.... it froze loading cpu test 1

    its Qpi try running the proc at 1.45 and up the QPI to ~ 1.4 i heard once the QPI gets high it starts tweaking out and that was a major road block for alot of reveiwers.

    Yeah, I believe the vcore and QPI have to be within .5v of each other, or you risk serious stability issues.
