    Oh by the way

    I'm on the stock FA bios for the board by the way.

    Any reason to update it to give it a more stable OC ?

    It's up to you if you wanna update BIOS,latest one might improve oc,if it failed prime95 you probably need more CPU voltage and or qpi/vtt voltage I would try around 1.35v CPU for 4.2ghz

    Prime passed after 8 hours

    191*20 = 4.011 Ghz with Vcore 1.264v

    Looking good so far

    Might try 10x SPD memory multiplier with 21x encore later. Any idea why it didn't let me boot in with that ? Currently on 8x SPD memory multiplier with 17x encore.

    Yes that was my mistake,don't know why I said those settings,I think I got mixed up for 3.8ghz,for 4.2ghz running 1600mhz ram you need 21x200 bclk,ram multi will be 8x and uncore freq will be 17x

    Use coretemp or realtemp to keep an eye on your temps,try to stay below 80c if you can but occasional spikes of 80-85c is fine

    Thanks Wazza

    But I'm on 4ghz, not 4.2ghz. Do I still require 8x memory and 17x uncore for 4.0 ghz ?

    If that's the case, no problem then.

    Whats my next step? I want to try push my memory. Should I lower the memory timings to 9-9-8-24 then 9-8-8-24 and 8-8-8 or 8-9-8 ? Also wan to tweak my QPI/VTT voltage - I have decreased this to 1.255v - should I try make it lower?

    My ram voltage is sitting at 1.5V with 9-9-9-24

    I have read some reviews its overclockable

    Yeah its the same,you use the bclk of 200 x 8mem multi = 1600 ram speed,it changes in speed depending on what bclk you use,same for uncore freq of 2x mem multi (8x) then add 1 = 17x uncore freq

    Yeah try 8.8.8.24-1t timings,might need 1.66v or 1.5v dram voltage,depends on what your rams rated voltage is,might need more qpi/vtt voltage too,I need 1.32v for 4.2ghz and 1.35v on my other chip

    I have just decreased the vcore and qpi/vtt a notch down from 1.27v and 1.255v respectively

    Will report back how it goes

    I'm happy with 4.011 ghz. The extra voltage increase to 1.35v vcore isnt worth it to get 4.2ghz for me

    Did you try for 4.2ghz with 1.35v? And are you using latest BIOS? There's not much performance increase if any from 4 to 4.2ghz anyway,only in benchmark numbers but up2u

    Using stock bios FA version

    I tried updating once but it game me an image error - so I did not dare to flash it again since. I downloaded the correct one to for my rev 2.0 board

    Any ideas why ?

    You need to use latest version of @bios because qflash doesn't support the BIOS for 3tb drives,once flashed with @BIOS though you can use qflash again as qflash will be updated too,if no problems though then no real need to update imo,but you can if you want to

    Have you tried using dvid now you've found a stable CPU voltage? Remember make a note of what normal uses then subtract stable voltage of 1.255v from what normal uses then enter it into dvid +0.------ amount,make sure c3/c6 and eist are enabled in BIOS and balanced power profile in win7 power saving options,

    P.s if setting normal CPU voltage uses more than your stable oc voltage then you need to remove -0.----- amount of voltage not add (+0.-----) in dvid
