Help please! The more I read on how to use the ASUS Sabertooth to overclock a i7 860 the more I am getting confused! Does anyone know where I can get a step by step guide so I can at least made a start? I have read other guides but cannot match them with my board which has IMC voltage, PLL voltage and PCH voltage - the guides talk about vcore voltage, but where is vcore on my board? Any help much needed and appreciated.

your board DEFINATELY has vcore, or cpu voltage. imc voltage should sit around 1.3v pll to 1.8v ram around 1.65 the vcore will vary with higher clocks
