    I also have this board and wonder if either one of you could post a comprehensive list of ALL BIOS settings for a successful ~3.6GHz (or higher) overclock?

    One of the problems I'm having is that I'm using OCZ3G1600LV6GK memory kit, and this board doesn't correctly detect the RAM timings, so they need to be manually set which makes overclocking difficult.

    for 3.6ghz set bclk 160 and set ram multiplier to give you 1600mhz,select expert ram timings and enter timings manually usually 8-8-8-24-1T,set dram voltage to 1.66,cpu voltage on normal,system performance enhance to standard and qpi v to 1.3000

    I saw in one of your previous posts you recommended to the user to decrease QPI v since the RAM frequency was less than yours. Do you not recommend this any more? In your settings you also enable C1E and EIST but you're running Win7. I'm running Win7 64-bit exclusively; should I disable these and leave my power settings to "balanced"? Which of your settings can I import and which do I need to adjust?

    yes set win7 balanced and disable c1e,keep eist enabled,try with 1.3v for qpi to start with,test and lower later maybe to 1.26,or you can clock to 3.8ghz cpu??? but with 1600mhz ram youll have to underclock your ram slightly,with 3.6 you will hit 1600mhz ram....whatever suits you best

    Thanks, I'll check this out. Since this board won't go to 1.65v for DRAM, is 1.64 a better choice over 1.66? On what side should you err for DRAM voltage settings? I'm obviously not an experienced overclocker here...

    1.66 in the bios will be 1.64 in windows,i know its a purple setting in the bios but its safe as it actually sets the voltage to 1.64 as thers no 1.65 setting

    1.64 sets 1.64 and 1.66 sets 1.65 sorry i didnt explain very well here look



    ^^^ what its actually using(dram voltage 1.648)



    ^^^ what the voltages are set at(dram voltage 1.66) in the bios,only use easytune as a guide dont overclock with it,always set all overclock settings in the bios

    Ok that makes sense. On your board, how much Prime95 time do you want to verify good OC settings? I ran half of a Memtest86+ test successfully to verify memory stability. BTW I'm using a D0 stepping model, with F11 BIOS revision on this EX58-UD3R rev. 1.0
