    In my attempts to be short and quick, I did leave out the details you've provided.

    In tests by ASUS, they found that regardless the quality of the motherboard and Power Supply, many Sandybridge CPUs had an overclocking limit. Even when temperatures were far below the maximum temps, the chip would not be stable. Even with more voltages applies, the chip was not stable. Thus they found there is a limit dependent on the CPU that no voltages, cooling, motherboard, or power supply quality or settings will be able to overcome in 24/7 use. This is just like the Base Clock (BCLK) is no longer highly overclockable because of the limit on the linked PCIe controller that just can't handle more than a 3-10% increase.

    I think the numbers were around 50% of all tested CPUs would be able to hit 4.4-4.5 Ghz (Multiplier only) with a sharp curve down to 5% of all CPUs tested actually reaching 5Ghz+.

    Thats true, I have the board and have tried 5 different 2600K chips, none would reach 5.GHz. I got to 4.9 Stable using Prime 95 for 36 hours as factor for saying I am stable. But there are other factors, the BIOS is very finicky and it just wont Flash.

    I just installed my Fatality today and I have it overclocked to 4.2 right now, but according to CPUID my speed seems to change and voltage goes up and down. I don't think it maintains the OC. What causes the changes is it speedstep or throttle setting?

    I have the same problem , these boards are crap, I am going to buy a new Asus Z68 board and hope that this didnt mess up my 2600CPU. Its cost me a fortune already, at first I thought it was my PSU, I had 1000W NZXT PSU, now I have a brand new AX850 Corsair and the same problem, I have never seen so much bad testing of from a motherboard company, this is all over the internet, I dont know one person who has this board for 2 months and hasnt had a problem. I am disgusted.
