I'm really surprised that eVGA doesn't offer lifetime warranties on their "mainstream" chipset FTW parts.

Thanks all :)

bojangles - thanks, will get it updated. Wrong file name in there I guess..

kiwik - Kept VTT at 1.35v, but Ill probably drop it to 1.3v. I think it is very doable at only 200BCLK and 800Mhz mem. Gunna reboot and drop it right now, will report back after I run stability tests.

EaGle1337 - Well there wasnt much to complain about.. I needed something right?? The issue for me was i couldnt use my IDE capture card for BIOS screenshots. Regular user would just have to worry about IDE drives.

VTT at 1.3v was no go at the same vcore, testing 1.325v now

1.325v VTT no go either, back to 1.35 for me!

See what I meant :p

I have almost the same setup and it needs 1.3625v for vcore, but a much safer 1.25v vtt.

3.8GHz with HT and passing LinX. Ram is at 1066 strap.

Most people seem to be running 1.35v VTT or even 1.4v in their setups so Im not worried about it. This thing is very solid at 4Ghz and I plan to run at that speed until I setup my next board. I could drop VTT a bit and increase vcore but I dont really see a need.

It's also that 4GHz is hard on the Hyper212 + with 2x 1200RPM S-Flex, hitting 100C and crashing in OCCT eventually. Hyperthreading adds a good 10-15C on each core, that's quite a lot.

Nothing you'd have to worry about with your WC.

I'm able to clock my i5 750 @4.2ghz (1.38v without vdroop)

This thing is just amazing~!

My another rig i7 920 with ASUS P6T just couldnt OC that easy.

I will be a EVGA motherboard buyer from now on ~!

Thanks for making me so happy EVGA
