Personally, I have run out of time to get into this and I may not be available tomorrow, but that depends on how I feel tomorrow. lol You see, I have a big project to do that I've been putting off and I think I'll be able to take care of it tomorrow, but first I need to get a good night's rest. lol So if I'm here during the day tomorrow, then I decided to put it off. hehe

Anyway, if I may, I'd like to recommend seeking help from www.overclock.net as well (also affectionately called "OCN"). I think you'll find a massive benefit from receiving help both from there and from here at the same time. After all, the vast majority of the members of that community are overclockers.

Cool, we have a clean slate. I may have asked this already, or I may have forgotten........what BIOS revision are you currently using?

Ok, I think we need to update the BIOS. We can do that when you are ready. Just let me know.
