    ASUS Rampage III Extreme Overclocking BIOS Guide

    Click on the pictures to view larger image

    The ASUS Rampage III Extreme is an Overclockers dream. This board begs to ask how well can you overclock. At the hart of the Rampage III Gene is its the X58 chip set capable of Quad SLI, and Quadfire X the 1366 socket board is capable of Trippe Channel DDR3 and up 24GB of memory capacity


    System Specifications

    Defaults
    (22.22c Ambient Air Temperature)
    Core Voltage: 1.144V
    Temperature: 27c
    Core Speed: 3.33GHz
    Uncore Speed: 2670MHz
    Base Clock Speed: 133MHz
    Quick Path Interconnect Speed: 3200MHz
    System Memory: 3x Corsair Dominator GTX 4 2533MHz 2GB
    Voltage: 1.5V
    Temperature 25c
    Speed: 1333MHz
    Divider "Ratio": 2:10
    Timings: CL9-9-9-24 74 1T


    4GHz
    Processor: Intel Core i7-980X
    Core Voltage: 1.360V
    Temperature: 75c
    Core Speed: 4.0128GHz
    Uncore Speed: 2889.2MHz
    Base Clock Speed: 160.5MHz
    Quick Path Interconnect Speed: 2889.3MHz

    System Memory: 3x Corsair Dominator GTX 4 2533MHz 2GB
    Voltage: 1.66V
    Speed: 963MHz
    Divider "Ratio": 2:12
    Timings: CL9-9-9-28 98 2T

    Extreme Tweaker BIOS Settings
    Enter the system BIOS by presing Delete on the BIOS splash screen.
    Set Tuning mode to Exteme OC
    Set AI Overclock tuner to manual
    Increase CPU multiplier to 30X
    Enable CPU Load-Line Calibration
    Increase CPU voltage to 1.35V
    Set DRAM bus Voltage to 1.65
    Disable CPU Spread Spectrum
    Disable PCIE Spread Spectrum
    Advanced CPU confuguration
    Disable Intel speedStep
    Disable Intel C-State Tech

    Press F10 save changes and exit, press F8 and boot off of your MemtestX86 disk
    wait for atleast 1 full pass of error checking to complete before contunuing to boot windows

    if no memory errors found boot to windows and run Prime 95 Torture test select In-place large FFTs
    Install Core Temp we do not want the Maximum CPU temperature to exceed 80*C
    I recommend an error free pass of Prime 95 for 24hr to ensure system stability

    Random Access Memory Overclocking
    Now we move into memory overclocking
    Set DRAM Timing Control to Auto
    Manually change the DRAM clock frequency to the rating of you memory in this case *2133MHz
    Also change the DRAM voltage to match the rating of your memory *1.65V
    press F10 to save and exit.

    Boot into windows and open CPU ID to verify your memory clock speed.

    Run a stress testing program like Prime 95 or a quick test like Wprime
    To ensure stability I suggest creating a Memtest X86 CD to check for memory errors.
