You might want to set like this for being stable:

Quote:
CPU Ratio ► Desired Overclock (42 = 4.2GHz or 45 = 4.5GHz)

Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology ► Enabled

Turbo Mode ► Enabled

CPU C1E ► Enabled

CPU C3 Report ► Disabled

CPU C6 Report ► Disabled

Package C State Support ► Disabled
Internal PLL Overvoltage: Disabled if you want to keep Sleep Mode

And disable CPU Spread Spectrum in Bios AI tweaker tab.

Also set disable in Bios EPU tab

You should tell us or be more clear about what you're doing right now.

We don't really know if you're in the process of O'Cing or if you're just trying to have good settings first with that Mobo!

the mobo hasent even shipped yet lol

since its my first intel rig, i just want a little heads up before i go dive into it. a lot of it is similar, but there a re a few things that i am unsure about:

What is:

1)Internal PLL/voltage
2)ASUS MultiCore Enhancement
3)1-Core Ratio Limit
4)Ratio Synchronizing Control
5)VCCSA Voltage
6)PCH Voltage
7)Hardware Prefetcher
8)Adjacent Cache Line Prefetch
9)Package C State Support

Rite now, alli know is that i want the CPU to be at 4.2 just by the multiplier and i want turbo boost disabled.

ok so reading about C-States, i think im just going to enable all of them since i dont hibernate my PC i only sleep it for hrs sometimes. ill benchmark it and try the c states once i get it up to par.

All i can suggest you now, is to read the P8Z77-V-Pro user-manual from Asus site, there's a good part about the UEFI Bios introduction.

Also read the mobo specs reviews online because they do talk often about that UEFI Bios settings.

So, you can keep an eye on what you will need when you'll have your mobo in hands!

Here's an exemple of Intel z77 UEFI Bios overview:

I will post my BIOS screenshots from my Sabertooth in a little bit to give you an idea of what options you can change and what you don't need to change.

I did this at first too and locked in a solid oc but it is better to use Turbo you will see no difference it will kick in and you will be at a constant 4.2

There is a Asus OC guide but that is if you have a Sabertooth or Maximums board i am sure it would apply as well since you are running Asus too http://www.overclock.net/t/1291703/i...s-motherboards

I would not disable Turbo, it will just shorten the life of the CPU running at 4.2 all the time.
Like Paul said I suspect if all you do is manually set your RAM to specs and the multiplier to 42 it will work fine. I have all C states disabled right now and all is well.

)Internal PLL/voltage-Unsure
2)ASUS MultiCore Enhancement-Allows all core to overclock
3)1-Core Ratio Limit- Allows the multiplier to be different to different cores
4)Ratio Synchronizing Control-Unsure
5)VCCSA Voltage "
6)PCH Voltage "
7)Hardware Prefetcher "
8)Adjacent Cache Line Prefetch "
9)Package C State Support ?

i was planning on having speedstep enabled. y is is better to OC the turbo rather then the multi?

do note that i use 2 different powerplans in windows. one that runs the CPU at 2.5ghz and one that runs it at full speed. this is because when im not gaming, i dont need the full speed.
