I have just upgraded to the same board and chip as you
I have a tagan 900W PSU and Corsair DDR 3 9-9-9-24 memory
So far I am extremely disappointed with the board as it will just not overclock and remain stable at decent overclock percentage. I have also tried a Q6600 G0 stepping and again could not overclock past 2.8 Ghz same setup.
I have 2x XFX 8800 GTX cards also but they are not overclocked (yet)
It's a liquid cooled system so I cannot understand what the problem is, If I try anything higher than 10.5x mulipler or above the system turns off or blue screens or even fails to post
I am on BIOS 0402
Please can you post your settings and what BIOS your on
N.B. just crashed the machine again running at only 3.33Ghz so basically the mahine will not overclock at all !!
