    Is There a Front Side Bus or Equivalent that can be overclocked?
    I think that it's called CPU/PCIe Base Clock (aka BCLK).
    With the newer z77 boards, the standard setting is 100.0 and the maximum o/c is to about 103 or slightly higher.
    Tweaking this setting too high will mess up hardware connected via the pci-e lanes.
    Check out the mobo block diagram in your user manual and you'll see which components will be affected.

    Gotcha,

    I cranked it to 1005 and my catalyst drivers went postal.

    Nyah, Nyah, told you so

    Did you set BCLK to 100.5? 105.0?

    I set it to 1005

    was OK at 4.4 but not over that.

    Why does my memory clock down to 1333?

    It's 1600 mhz.

    Your PC Specs hardware list is very incomplete.

    We can best help you after you create a detailed hardware list in the PC Specs portion of your forum profile http://forums.tweaktown.com/profile.php?do=editprofile at the bottom of the profile page or in your forum signature http://forums.tweaktown.com/profile....=editsignature.

    You will probably need to read some Z68a overclocking guides or threads.
    A web search using: sin0822 z68a will provide excellent overclocking details.
    I'm pretty sure that there are some bios voltage settings that need to be tweaked when increasing BCLK.
    I think that you will find that increasing BCLK will give small gains at best.
    See which o/c approaches give the best results.

    How much memory are you running?
    ?? 24-GB 1600mhz ??

    No there is no front side bus that is old technology.
    The clock may be increased slightly, 2 to 5 MHz not more, but why bother when you have unlocked CPU ratio, I don't believe it adds anything to performance.

    Yes 24 GB of 1600mhz corsair vengeance LP

    I'm running Vue 9.5 and producing an ecosystem on a 2048*2048 terrain is running upwards of 10GB memory.

    Any chance I could hit a steady 4.8-5.0ghz with a liquid cooler?

    I like the look of the Intel model.

    Depends on the chip, some can do 5-5.2GHz.
    As I said before Intel burm Test is not a must, see where you can get with Pri,e95 only wich will result in about 10c less.
