    Just checking in. Any luck on 4.0 or higher?

    Anyone? (8/5/09)

    Also, anyone update to a later BIOS? I think 9 is out now.
    Sorry, looks like maybe your post was missed a while back.

    This is the setting you need enabled for Virtual Machines >>
    Advanced Settings

    Virtualization Technology................: [Disabled] Enabled if you use Vmware/Virtual PC

    The latest BIOS for your board is F7b, UD3R right? Sorry if not, you do not have it listed in your signature but I did check the only post you started and you said that was your board then 4/3/09

    If I'm OC'ing is it an issue to enable Virtualization Technology?

    VT will be fine when overclocking. Whether you postpone using VM's until you settle on the OC you want is up to you. When clock speeds are finalised you can also see if re-enabling EIST and C1E is possible. They work fine for me at 3.9GHz, nice and stable (EIST and C1E not VM, my CPU doesn't have it).
    Coolermaster CM 690 II advance Case
    Corsair HX750 (CWT, 91%(80+ Gold rated @230V) single 62A 12V rail
    P55A-UD4 v2.0 @ F14

    TRUE Black with a single Noctua NF-P12 pumping out 55 CFM @ 19db .
    2 x 2GB Mushkin Ridgeback (996902), @ 7-10-8-27, 2010-DDR, 1.66v

    What improvements do you see when OC'ing with EIST and C1E? Actually forgot what they are at this point.

    All EIST and C1E do is lower the multiplier to 6 at idle. If Vcore is set to auto or normal, it lowers that too.

    With those features enabled, you use less power at idle, which is always a good thing, temps at idle will be lower (not important) and the CPU temp will drop quicker when going from load to no load (quite useful).

    And you've had good luck with this while OC'ing? What speed is your CPU set to?

    Ya, sorry you are correct. Not sure what happened with my reply about the BIOS versions. I do see Stasio has not updated his thread since F7b, so maybe that is why I said that. Sorry I don't remember where I looked when you asked.

    I will PM Stasio and remind him, thanks!

    Virtualization will be fine with OC, I use it and have no issues.
