Wow, no one has suggested anything after all those reads? Isnt that one of the easy processors to overclock? 2.66 1333 FSB? Dont know if the VCore base settings variate on those, since I only have quads, but I would guess you dont need any change in VCore to reach 3.3 since my quads can reach 500Mhzs over their speeds without much changing of things, and no VCore.
Uhh, I would assume any newer bios has the fix, so just read up on em for a min, and pick a stable release. Then just disable all the spread spectrum junk, and the processor features like speed step, vanderpool, disable bit, blahblah, Everyone seems to go with a 1.40 on FSB for 1600ish, unlink your memory, and set it at whatever you wanted it to be. (if yer familiar with such settings, hehe. Always safe to unlink it and leave it at what it is.) 1600 doesnt work with my P5n32esli, hehe, but it may for you!
Basically, just up the north bridge to 1.40, and start at 1485 FSB and up it slowly from there, watching the speed as you go. I know 1485 works! Hopefully that doesnt blow your computer up!
::Looks around.:: I didnt say anything, what do you mean??
As a matter of fact, on a whim, I saw an XFX 780i and got it last eve, havent swapped it out, but I will let ya know when I do. My 680i wont boot past 320 FSB, unless its whatever equals 1485. Got meeeee!! But I will do some testing and then go from a guess that its the board, to knowing that it was, lol!
I'll be swapping it out some time today... Please let me take my raid array safely to the new board!!! Pwease??
