Can key everything in fine for a 3.8 run, it'll be stable the WHOLE way thru linepack (almost IBT stable) and go back to the bios to try for a 3.9 run and it BSODs right after the post/ACHI check.. Arrrgh!!

I love the board, but once you get a little more demanding, it falls short. I want the GD70 board, but I hate AMI bios..


And Phil: don't start with that again.
lol, jk man :P

I assume you have flashed it to the latest bios? Overclocking on my gigabyte is no cakewalk either, but once you figure it out this thing is rock solid stable.

^ yeah.. I'm running F6 bios.. It actually CRASHED during one of the BIOS flases.. on a STOCK clock, too! I think I MAY have 3.8g somewhat stable.. as shocking as it sounds, but when you restart it for whatever reason, it's NOT as stable... Really odd board.. it's like it has a personality.. The NB heatsink was SLIGHTLY warm today.

^ I've thought about PC also.. But I'd rather upgrade to a stronger DDR3 platform before I did that.

-=EDIT=- Tues @ 1625.

I tried a different approach.. Higher FSB, lower Mult and NB and HT @ 2.6g.. it got WORSE.. This is really strange. I'm doing multiple runs at different clocks with different settings.. Doing a 3.3g run now with almost NOTHING touched in the bios.. just locked the RAM @ 1066, mult increase and a slight voltage tweak. -> 32.5487 on that run.. Strange..


-=EDIT2=-

THE REASON I LOST 7 FLOPS was because that first 41 flop run was a smaller prob size.. I guess all this rig is good for a 37 flop runs at most.

Very nice overclock, Burn. What kind of temps do you pull?

For that I didn't check, but on my 24/7 OC (4ghz now, lowered from 4.1 to save power) the average of all cores is about 53C
