I have read numerous articles as well as suggestions on overclocking. I am stepping the cpu to raise clock speed, setting voltages, adjusting memory clocks and still I am unable to manually oc this system beyond what the OC genie onboard button will do. I have searched for info and guides specific for this motherboard and is been frustrating to say the least. I just want to do this manually to try to raise the clock speed beyond 3.6 ghz and possibly lower my temps. 40c no load, 55-70c on full load. I have seen many other systems with higher clocks and temps lower. I cant figure out why I am unable to get this right. Maybe I am just overlooking something simple, but with all the settings this board provides for overclocking, I feel overwhelmed. I hate the fact I spent the money I did and all I can do is get better results with the Overclock Genie button the board provides. If anyone has a guide or any experience with this board please let me know. Thanks

Actually I figured it out. I didn't turn of Turbo. EIST, and C states. Once I did, everything worked out. My memory is stable at 1800mhz and cpu is 3.6ghz manually and lowered my temps by 10c . I am stoked.

Grats on solving it, but you may want to keep EIST and C states on as it does save power. Turbo is the OC killer unless you're doing super crazy OCing.

I'm curious about your RAM, did you increase the voltage and timings?

I did have to increase the voltage and timings alittle on the corsair memory which I was a bit disappointed in. They were advertised at 1600 Mhz at 1.5v 7-7-7 . Instead I set voltage at 1.6v and 9-9-9 to achieve the 1800 mhz speed.
