No I have not used it apart from checking the vcore in windows with it. I only overclock in the bios. I don't really don't trust Windows Motherboard overclocking apps.

4.2 now with 1.283, HT and Turbo on. Too bad I can't get my ****ing ram to work with 6 sticks.
Just saw this post, Was afraid that I was having vcore issues because im hitting 3.8 easily at 1.25. Haven't tried 4Ghz yet in fear of temps mainly...

What are your temps meth?

ok, im confused now... I raised my vcore to 1.3 since I became unstable at 3.8ghz during prime and cpuz nor does easytune show that change, both show 1.264.
