I had a hard time getting it stable anything over 3.5 - on top of the head issue....
I left everything on auto except the vcore, fsb, and some other small stuff. I haven't touched the ram at all.

I get mixed opinons on how much voltage I should be putting into the thing... on XS half of them say "ITS FINE GO AHEAD!" and the other half say "zomg 1.4v's max!!!"

I do want to make this board + proc last btw... hehe
