Man I swear in the short time this chip is out I could write a book on overclocking the amout of things I had to tweak to get my rig stable.

You are most certainly better leaving the majority of values on AUTO, unless you are going for a 4.6Ghz+ clock, but the one thing that is critical is to use the XMP profile if your ram has it. I found that everytime I let the Asus mobo clock my board it upped the BLCK (keep it at 100) and tightened the memory too much which leads to major stability problems. If you use the BLCK for an overclock much like the noobs with the non "K" cpus have to, you are essentiallly clocking up every component on the board which is not good and will not get you stable overclock for the most part...

Believe me 4.2Ghz is not an extreme over clock with these chips and TBH you dont need anything higher for 24/7 operation...Just make sure for the 4.2ghz clock you have that Phase and DRM setting is high/enabled. You do not need extreme settings for that clock. Manually set the timings on the ram and leave the VRM on auto (350 for 4.5ghz upwards)

Even if the volts on the RAM is 1.65v you will be able to run them lower and leave the CPU volts on auto. Make sure that Load Line Calibration is set to max however to stop the vdroop. And unlike previous chipsets leave all the speed stepping and throttling setting to auto....do NOT disable.

What are the temps like??? Also run prime95 and set the tests to small FFTs and see how you fair stability wise.

thanks for the tips . i did leave most of the settings on auto or default settings. only thing i changed was the turbo from auto to manual and set the multi . temps are in lo 70s aint goin higher than this oc with that tx3. gonna wait till i have a better hs to try and push it alittle more. but i stll cant figure out how to make it idle at 4.2ghz every time i set it in the bios it doesnt save it . but its no biggie as long as it throttles up to 4.2ghz wen i need it .
