i think my hypothesis is true, so far perfectly stable, right now at 3.8ghz, will stay there, 4.0 needs a bit more juice then i would like.

tomorrow i might pick up x-fi prelude, i wanted to pick-up the new Auzentech x-fi forte pci-e. but if i ever go sli, i won't have any pci-e slots free.

I use one pci-e for video card now, and second esata 2-port card. so will have to stick to pci sound cards.

x-fi predule will confirm if my current x-fi is faulty, or pci bus on the x58 is faulty.

I hate the onboard sound on my X58, when i have the realtek drivers installed i have to 'mute' the 'pc bleep' in sound properties or i get severe interference at the highest volume levels.

i just installed gigabyte easytune

it lets me choose 3ghz or 3.20ghz with a click of a button
looks like it changes the BCLK? whatever that is

it also lets me change it manually

my screen captures of the app-








p.s. i changed the vcore to 1.35 earlier

I would go for 20x multiplier, 180 QPI (bclk) and a 2/8 Memory ratio this will give you 1440mhz ram. Try the timings on the RAM as they are at 1333mhz.

Im not too sure of the bios options for the Gigabyte board but ill download the manual and take a look.
