Ivy Bridge Overclocking IDF News
Posted at Anandtech:
- The max CPU ratio is now 63x up from 57x
- You can now adjust CPU ratios without a reboot, just via a register write.
- DDR3-2800 will be the maximum DRAM frequency.
All 3 are FANTASTIC for overclockers. Hopefully this will allow for a little less RNG (random number generator) when you go and buy one from the store and end up with a lower maximum multiplier (52x, for example) instead of a higher that is desired (56-57x). Now in-windows we will be able to push the chip a little bit further for those last multi jumps for benchmarking!Haswell Benching and Gaming: ASRock Z87 OC Formula : Intel i7 4770k w/ Phanteks PH-TC14 : 8GB 2x4GB G.Skill TridentX DDR3-2666 : MSI, XFX, and Sapphire R9 290X

That would level all the SB bot scores and the hunt for the bot killer CPU would start all over again

Considering my 2500k that seems unable to pass 4.3ghz, this is welcome news.
