    Ok I got 3.2 to work although i had no section in the bios that says Extreme Memory Profile (x,M,p) that I could see. Ok what do I need to change to push it further? How far should I push it so I am still stable? Right now my cpu idle temps are about 40c at 3.2. Thanks so much for taking the time to help guys!

    One thing I noticed so far is that even though it boots fine, when I put it to sleep mode then click my mouse button to wake the computer it doesnt boot up. It just powers up with no signal to the monitor and all the motherboard leds are on as if its booting up. the display on the bottom of the motherboard reads bF and doesnt change. I try to hit the reset button on the computer and nothing. So I have to power off then reboot. When it boots up it says that it is resuming windows. I guess that means that its unstable?

    Ok I tried upping the voltage a bit and still it wouldnt wake up. Then I set the bios to default and now the computer wont go into sleep mode at all! The monitor goes off but power is still on and the display shows FF. I think I will try the bios upgrade.

    Ok I updated the bios to f8. I noticed the keyboard problem, when it asks if you want to start windows normally or in safe mode, the keyboard doesnt work. Also my sound no longer works for my xfi card. And now if I go into sleep mode the monitor goes out but it will not power off unless I hit the power button or reset it. Any ideas? Do i have a bad motherboard?
    Thanks

    Hi shaned, the native keyboard support trouble is a known issue with the current F8 Bios, I much like you are waiting for the next bios, stasio should publish a beta or somethin which corrects it on the near future.
    also, your ram isnt x.m.p if theres no option displayed in the bios for it.
    this means, you must follow the uncore freq = dram freq x 2 + 1 rule, and your bios settings are going to be more 'fiddley' compared to if you had XMP capable memeory, but dont worry though, the ram you have is still very nice :)

    XMP is memory specific, if you don't see it no worries that just means your memory is not programmed with it is all.

    About sleep, what BIOS are you using? If you are not using the latest that would be why it fails for you. You will need to use the latest BIOS and be 100% stable for S3 sleep to resume.

    Latest BIOS can be found here

    Please flash using Qflash and DO NOT USE @BIOS, here is a guide I wrote for Qflash

    Damn, sorry I reply as I read..... No need for that info since you already updated, but I will leave for others later on maybe. And cause I already typed it out :)

    The USB issue has been resolved in the latest Beta BIOS release. Please see the last page or two of the BIOS thread for now to obtain this beta until Stasio updates the main page you will have to go to JZ's site and get the beta

    Lsdmeasap can you give me a starting setup for 4ghz? I am currently at 4ghz with my vcore at 1.29 and qpi/vtt voltage 1.36. I have turbo off. My idle temps are about 40c. I cant make if past 25 to 30 minutes running OCCT. I have my memory at 1200 and would like to get that to 1600. Thanks

    i just changed theses settings for 4ghz 1600speed for the ram
    qpi 36
    bclk 200
    uncore 16
    pci express 100
    system memory multiplyer 8x
    cas lat 8x
    trcd 8
    trp 8
    tras 24
    cpu vcore 1.375
    qpi/vtt voltage 1.34
    pci 1.500 v to 1.54
    ioh core 1.14
    ich core1.14
    dram volts 1.64
    Now on post it shows 4ghz and the memory is 1600 and the blue frequency lights are all on on the motherboard and my temps are in the mid 40's but the weird thing is that when I right click and do properties on my computer it shows up as 2.66ghz and when I run OCCT it shows cpu frequency at 2400 for current original is 2666.0 overclock -10%. For the bus frequency it shows current 200 original 133 and overclock 50.4%. Why is this?

    nothing to worry about, it's just eist/c1e reducing the cpu multi when idle (and windows properties not updating)
    if you want to stop it happening, you can disable the options under advanced cpu freatures
