Finally! OMG. F....n Asus. If someone can't overclock it's fault of mobo BUG

BUG is annoying if you oc your rams or cpu you gonna have enforced pci to x1 (with option peg force x1 disable too) The more you overclock with this bug more performance you lose. F....n paradox Higher clocks = lower performance

Be sure to set in BIOS:

1. PCI Frequency - Overclock or underclock between 85mhz-115 (not more not less!)
2. PEG Force x1 - Disable
3. PCI Clock Synch - AUTO
4. PEG Link Mode (other mobos Static Read Control) to Normal or if you havent this option to disable
5. And most important NB Vcore can't be higher than 1.45v and lower than 1.35v

NOW you are free

This mobo firstly owned me for hours but now im teh pwner :D
