When I first installed the video card, it messed up my overclock and I had to re-do it.

I took out the video card and re-set the overclock settings. I got it stable at:


FSB (qdr) = 1120mHz

Mem (ddr) = 560mHz

Multiplier = 12.5

CPU Freq = 3.50gHz

Memory Timings = 5,4,4,11


CPU Core = 1.35V
CPU FSB = 1.4V
Chipset Voltage = 1.1V
Memory = 1.9V
CPU PLL = 1.5V

Well, the stupid motherboard was the problem. It was overheating with the video card installed. So went out and got a EP45-UD3R. Great board! Got even a better overclock with this motherboard.

3.75gHz (300 x 12.5) at only 1.31 Volts

Ran prime95 for 10 hours and no errors.





Might try for 4.0 gHz in a little bit.

There was an option for pcie but the only two toggles were enabled and disabled. It didn't allow you to input a value for it.

Wow that is a very nice overclock. I'm struggling to hit 3.0Ghz with a mobo that's somewhat similar to yours.
