Long story short I got a SAMSUNG 970 EVO Plus M.2 NVMe drive that wouldn't work with my motherboard and ended up updating the bios and lost my overclocks, I should have switched bios chips but forgot.

I've got all my screen shots with benching results and the voltage from my tag below but can't remember what the other settings need to be at, by other settings i mean power saving features in bios etc etc.


Any help is very much appreciated, specs are in green in my tag.

Here is a screen shot of what i've been running it at.

We've got a Haswell overclocking guide... that should fill in the blanks... :)
https://www.overclockers.com/3step-guide-to-overclock-intel-haswell/

I don't see anything in there. Sometimes I disable EIST, but, it's been a while.

Oh ya, forgot about that thread. It's definitely been a while since i've done much with computers or forums these days, sadly. I do recall having to disable various power saving features to keep it from crashing.

Much appreciated!

On a side note, whats the trending intel cpu these days?
