I've purchased my machine not long ago and can't go past 3Ghz when overclocking , it is now stable (according to orthos)
I have my FSB set at 316 multiplier at 9.5 vcore at 1.25, and no matter what I do I can't go past this point, even tried setting vcore at 1.4 ..
ram:FSB is 1:1
PSU is enermax 525W PRO, ram OCZ vista performance.
^ Kind of. Just use QFlash it's not that hard, sure beats DOS. Just download the BIOS online. Format Flash Drive in FAT (MUST BE IN FAT) and copy the BIOS file to that. Then follow instructions on the manual on how to use Q-Flash.
I agree with the others, flash it to the latest bios and try again. Read the instructions for using QFlash, as others have stated, it is real simple to use. I have the same set up as you (CPU ?& Mobo) and I'm at 333*9.5 (3.16Ghz with aftermarket HSF) stable at stock voltage.
They're right, flash your bios. If you've got the 45mm E7200 you should be able to run at 3GHz on stock voltages. Make sure your PCIE freq is fixed at 100. Loosen your ram timings and put the vdimm to whatever their rating is to keep them as far out of the equation as possible. Use speedfan and check your core temps - make sure you're at or below 60, and definitely not above 70; you could have heat issues, especially if you're on the stock HS.
I cleared CMOS with a screwdriver , and the voltages were adjustable , and again during the night they were locked again.... whats wrong with this board.... I'm afraid flashing bios might fail duo to a damaged part in the board.
