    I'm still loving this board. Swapped my Q6600 out for a Q9650 that I bought super cheap off eBay, and now I'm rocking at 4.05 GHz 1.343v Prime stable on air.

    Here to join the club. I'm trying to get to a decent overclock with safe temps and it has to remain stable. My system specifications should be visable. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I've gotten it to 4GHz (10x400) easily at 1.32V but it wasn't completely stable - would work for me for about 6 ~ 8 hours before shutting off even though the temps were all good (by good I mean - they didn't go above 70c ever - only one time spiked to 69c with stress testing in OCCT but stayed around 50~65c depending on the cores you were looking at). I'm on air cooling for now. Any recommendations to my system settings to have a decent overclock that's stable with safe temps? If I went with watercooling, I have very little doubt that I couldn't run at 4.1GHz stable with low temps, since this has been a great cherry chip so far. I would be happy to settle with anything between 3.7~4.0 GHz if I can get it completely stable since I use my PC for streaming/gaming/content creation/art/school etc. For a long time now I've been running everything at stock speeds (3GHz) and... it's showing it's limitations with everything. Wanted to overclock for a while until I can upgrade my CPU/Mobo/Ram at the very least. If you need any info, just let me know to better help you to help me!~ Cheers

    Here are my stable settings on air cooling without super high temps.

    I could get it to 4.0 GHz but the temps are kind of high and I'm not comfortable with that for daily use. Here are all of my settings for now.

    super solid design and functionality. awesome for high end users, overclockers, and other tech savvy ppl who would like to invest in one of the best mobos. but....
    Cons: after a little over 1 year of use, it finally died. i was running vista 64 bit first. when windows 7 finally came out, i was one of the first to upgrade to windows 7. none of the drivers from the website installed. they all gave me error messages. while trying to see if vista drivers would work, my entire system went black as if the power went out. a full day of troubleshooting followed. i tried a different power supply,
    different cpu, https://athletesphysiques.com/dianabol-review-results/ memory, and video card. finally the problem turned out to be the mobo. requesting for an rma, asus tried to get a good chunk of cash out of me, saying that in order to process the rma, something else needs to be fixed and it would cost me over $100.
    Other Thoughts: it was great when it lasted. as far as rma goes, similar experiences are shared by my family members and some friends who use asus products. generally they try to charge you for some random things you weren't expecting. and upgrading with windows 7 has been difficult and slow. maybe i'm just unlucky as during the last several months, i've experienced a lot of my asus products failing on me and not upgrading correctly, and it has left me a bitter taste in my mouth. i own 2 asus g1s laptops, 2 desktops and a few other systems that i built for some of my family members and they have a lot of asus products in them. i don't think i'll be buying any more asus things from now on
