Try BCLK at 195
CPU voltage between 1.28 and 1.375(lower is better)
CPU to PLL 2.00
QPI/Dram 1.32

Then work your way to lowest stable voltage:toast:
no crying if you fry it tho!

Binge, that needs to be in your sig for sure. It's helped many people understand the finer points on overclocking the X58 series.

Edit: I want pics! Thats a nice board there!!

Also, might try googling for a bios template. that would help.
