    Default Need some advice on EP45-UD3P configuration

    I will be getting my UD3P later this week and looking to overclock my CPU. The reason I ordered the UD3P is because my current Asus P5B was severely lacking in tuning ability and had some annoying minor issues. So going from the P5B to the UD3P I noticed a LOT of settings in the BIOS that I'm not familiar with and need to know which ones to leave at auto/default/whatever and which ones I need to change.

    My current configuration:
    Asus P5B, Q9400, Xigmatek Dark Knight HSF, 2x2GB OCZ Titanium DDR2-800, nVidia 8600GTS w/factory OC, Antec Truepower 2.0 430.
    Multiplier: 8x, FSB: 400MHz
    Vcore: 1.3250v reported by CPU-Z as 1.280-1.296v idle and 1.212v under load
    FSB Term: 1.4v, NB: 1.25v, SB: 1.5v, ICH: 1.057v
    RAM: 1.85v, 4-4-4-15

    I ran Prime95 blend for 25 hours before core 4 failed (lasted 3 hours on small afterwards) with the vcore set to 3.125v and RAM at 2.1v. I ran memtest for several hours with no errors at 1.85v then raised the vcore to 1.3250v and ran Prime95 for several hours error free. I stopped there because I had decided to order the UD3P and these numbers may not mean much with a new motherboard.

    Can someone give me a good starting point with the UD3P?

    With your new mobo, I recommend that your test your system with your mobo resting on a suitable box or stack of books, outside of your computer case.

    Follow the instructions in this post for initial bios settings to prevent problems. Include your hardware list in your signature; suggestions are in the post below the bios settings.

    Let us know your overclocking goals and if you're into heaving gaming, encoding, etc.
