Man you guys are scaring me. I'm trying to become a first time OC'er and this just makes me feel like a 3rd grader trying to do calc when he hasn't learned long division yet.

not all boards are like that Most you just set the FSB, a few voltages here and there and voila you have a highly clocked cpu

yes as gurusan said its just a matter of changing the FSB for your clock and a voltage increase to keep it stable.

Ok, I've read a lot of the threads on it so far. I think I can handle it.

You know I'll post though if and when I run into trouble.

I've been doing a ton of reading on the Rampage bios just so I know what affects what and what the heck I'll be doing. These new bios are alittle more complicated. What I though was cool was from Foxconn is that they categorized each setting to what it affects. Which I think is alot easier.
