Hey everyone!

I was searching around the forum for a post on this, but havent found anyhting except bios settings for the ASUS BIOS

I just went from a ASUS P6T (which in my opinion had a more understandable BIOS) to a EVGA x58 SLI LGA1366 board.

I am just looking to get a detailed instruction with this BIOS to OC my i7 920 d0 stepping anywhere (3.4- 4.0 Ghz) I have searched on some other sites, but when I do put the info in, My board just wanted to reset or shut down on me:( I am new to the EVGA board bios so any info would be appriciated greatly!.

If anyone can give me a rundown of what specs need to go where, Thank you

-Steve

Post a direct link to your RAM showing SPD timings, voltage, and quantity installed. You might also want to create a sig. which details your system spec's.

Welcome to the forum.:welcome: I too just started using this mobo. On mine I really did not have to get into any of the settings except setting the cpu vcore to 1.225 and setting for no vdroop. I found alot of helpful info here. Just take there settings for overclocking with a grain of salt. I found most used more voltage then was necessary.

SPECS:
Intel core i7-920 D0 Step
EVGA x58 SLI
6gb OCZ Gold DDR3
XFX ATI Radeon HD5770
Xigmatek Dark Knight
Corsair Obsidian 800D

This is just what my build consists of , everything so far is stock clock settings, I am just figuring someone on this forum would have the same board as I do. I dont want to give someone a headache with typing out all my stock settings, knowing that someone out there has already went through it as I did.

Thanks Hardass, I will go check this site out and I will try to do what you said and work from there. How do you like this one? I got a deal on this from a store my friend works at, Had no luck with the SE version and the ASUS P6T was just running too hot for my taste.

I do not have the classified edition of the board. just the x58 3way SLI LGA 1366. Let me know if you were mistaken before I do what you posted. Seems like evrything on that link is going towards the classified board

I am running the 759, but bios setup should be close I would think. Good luck. I really like the mobo myself.:cool:

i adjested the vcore and the vdroop and nothing changed? Thats why i was seeing if there was anyone that had the full specs on what i should do in my bios for getting it anywhere from 3.6 - 4ghz if possible? I cant find a successfull bios setup
