OK I needed to flash the bios - problem solved.
A question for OC mavens if you please:
Since Foxconn does not have a core multiplier option how are some people able to OC their systems with SandyBridge. This person claims over 5ghz benchmark which is hard to swallow since Foxconn's BIOS are notorious for not having a "core multiplier" option yet they still support i7? I tried to up the FSB at 106 and the system collapsed. False advertising? Am I missing something?
There is no core multiplier in their BIOS. What mb would you recommend for OCing an i7 2700k? Not looking for extremes, I really respect the chip and want to boost it up to 4.4 ghz for stable operation.
