    That is some nice FSB. It will go beyond that to 614! Are you using the GTL Ref voltages that I had? Give it a go and see what you end up with? Keep the RAM at stock and see how far you can take it? Certain memory rations may not work. I am not sure if it had something to do with the RAM or not. I just kept the RAM at stock. Did you try my settings in BIOS1?

    I'm trying to get a stable 24/7 clock @ 3.6 right now. I found some info on XtremeSystems and tried their setting and it took me to the 500fsb! I can't believe how this board needs such little volts on the NB and fsb voltages compared to my P5E!
    I saving my settings every time i change something in the bios so i saved over your bios1 settings. When i set and unstable clock that can't make it to windows i have to pull the battery and reset everything almost all the time or it goes into a reboot loop. I'm pretty sure their is a setting in the bios to stop that but i have been having too much fun to look for it.

    An easy way to test would be to install Windoze on a USB drive. Clone it and save the clone to your HDD. So, if you kill windoze, you don't have to worry about reinstalling everything from scratch.

    I haven't killed windows yet i just have to reenter everything in the bios time...date...ect. after a about four times that gets kinda old.
    Looks like 1.36 is the lowest volts for 3.6
    I know the gtl refs make a huge difference after playing around a little.
    cpu gtl
    0)+30
    1)-10
    2)+30
    3)-10
    seem to work the best so far at 3.6
    and
    cpu - NB skew
    delay100 -normal seems to be the sweet spot

    but i have alot more to play with

    Well I ran prime all night and it seems stable enough for me @ 3.6.
    Vcore- 1.360
    FSB- 1.32 (P5E had to be at 1.39)
    PLL- 1.55
    NB- 1.35 (P5E volts for NB had to be at 1.46 and the NB was hot)

    I still have to play with the NB gtl and the memory skews/ ref voltages to see how fast this thing will go! So far it seems any thing over 3.8 needs quite a bit of tweeking of the reference voltages.

    The computer just feels zippier!

    You will have to bump up the VCore by quite a bit as you nudge towards 3.8GHz. Point of diminishing returns.
