A new motherboard is not an absolute requirement, since mine is supposed to handle it after being flashed to the latest BIOS, but since it doesn't handle my current CPU very well, I'm not all that confident that it would handle the Bulldozer well either.

I suppose that I could cross my fingers and hope that it would work properly, but I'm not very good at that sort of thing.

Still challenged to get the ram to full 2133 but my chip has been all over the OC map. I'm back down to 4.0 currently with the ram at 1832. Getting excellent response and so far so stable. It's when I try to get the chip and ram higher when I run into trouble. Plus in the bios I can up the CPU voltage to 1.44-1.45 but it doesnt show near that high in CPUZ or MIS? odd, should I bump it till it shows at a 1.44v in CPUZ or trust the bios?

you are getting v droop cpu-z will show lower due to the droop there are pll setting's that stabalize the droop i played with it but didnt want to fiddle to much don't worry about it

just make sure if you get a droop to low that will cause a bsod you will have to increase the v-core to compensate just see where it is stable at the highest oc then back off some v-core and see where you land then walla you will know where to clock it without increasing more heat even though this chip can take it

Man I hate the droop ! lol I boosted the bios vcore to 1.603 and I'm showing 1.456 @ 4466mhz cpu w/1832mhz ram.
I was nervous to hit this level but temps are mild and I'll just watch things from here. I just don't think I can extract the full 2166 potential.

^ Not sure if you are too far along in the process, but try to capture some real world examples of tasks and such before and after your overclock so that people can see just how significant or insignificant that all of the effort involved with overclocking can make.

So new highwater mark hit @ 4.58mhz. Ran my WEI and it's not reflective of my crossfired 5770's.
