AI Booster is disabled automatically. Basically, in the BIOS you go into Advanced -> JumperFree Configuration and that'll give you the main OC options such as HTT speed, vcore, vdimm, multipliers, etc. Memory options are in Advanced -> CPU Configuration -> DRAM Configuration. HTT multiplier and Cool 'n Quiet is under CPU Configuration also. When in JumperFree Configuration, for the Overclock Profile, choose Manual and NOTHING else. Avoid AI Overclock and AI N.O.S. like the plague!

Alright its official, Ill try overclocking this bad boy once i've decided on the air cooling to go with. Is the TT Big Typhoon > Zalman 9500LED? (I say this because I heard the Zalman was good.) or what other air cooling would give me room to push this puppy to the max?

What case you got? Without proper clearance, the Big Typhoon suffers. Also, made a mistake, AI Booster is a normal program that is on the CD that comes with the board. DO NOT use it!

My case is just a startech ATX tower. Nothing special, no windows or any fancy stuff. I've bin scoping out new cases and am not sure which to get but I like the look of the Kandalf/Armor.

A TT BT will fit in a standard ATX case.

O, I know that. I'm talking about how much space there is between the side and the BT. Without enough room, it suffocates and can't perform anywhere near it's potential. Can we get a model number?
