I'll leave the LN2 to the 'big boys'. I'm happy with 4.6 where I run it all the time. I just wanted to see if I could hit 5. I did it, so I'm happy now. Vcore is easy to set, but there are a lot of other settings that affect it.

Plus motherboard manuals are little to no help. Example, say there is a Qflux setting, all it tell you is click this to enable it or that to disable, no explanation of what the Qflux is.
I just made up Qflux.

Either way, good luck with it.
Sorry for the (really) late reply mate! My PSU developed a fault with the fan (it made a really irritating noise when idling or at load) and I had to RMA it, the replacement came yesterday and I fitted it today. So far so good

Thanks for the kind offer! I need to update my BIOS to 1504 first, but I'll take some photos when that's done. Thanks again, really appreciate it

lmao! welcome to R.O.G bios's. i was totally lost when i'd first seen mine lol. most of the settings are just gobble dee gook to me

It's been a fantastic board for me. 1st one worked right out of the box, booted first try. That is saying something with my luck. I can only promise you one thing. If you want to adjust something, anything, there is an option to do it. You'll just have to forget everything you know and start learning over again. This bios is crazy.
