Anyone have any experience OCing this motherboard? Long story short, my X58 Extreme finally gave up on me and my buddy was nice enough to replace it this model. My Extreme got me to 4.0 Ghz easy without any special special BIOS tweaks and I ran it at a modest 3.8Ghz folding. The Extreme3, which should be identical to the Extreme, I cannot get a stable OC at 3.4:eek::wtf: I get BSOD's and hard lock ups once I start my CPU and GPU folding clients. I went from manually setting the RAM spec speeds, tweaking every voltage on the BIOS, dropping it down to 3.2 and yet I still get hard lock ups and BSOD's:wtf::shadedshu
