The ASUS Rampage III Gene is a small form factor Micro ATX motherboard that packs a powerful punch! This board begs to ask how well a small form factor system can overclock. Here you will see if the Gene will live up to the expectations of its legendary big brother the Rampage III Extreme. At the hart of the Rampage III Gene is its the X58 chip set capable of Quad SLI, and Quadfire X the 13666 socket board is capable of Trippe Channel DDR 3 and up 24GB of memory capacity

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 1.3V
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 (http://www.memtest86.com/download.html) 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 (http://files.extremeoverclocking.com/file.php?f=205) Torture test select In-place large FFTs
Install Core Temp (http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/) 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.


796797798


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


795794


Run a stress testing program like Prime 95 or a quick test like Wprime
To ensure stability I suggest creating a Memtest X86 CD (http://www.memtest.org/) to check for memory errors.

Rampage III Gene OverClocking to be Continued
future updates may consist of various Cooling with the goal of squeezing the most performance out of your hardware.
This thread will focus on the ASUS Rampage III Gene motherboard and its ability to overclock using an Intel Core i7-980X Extreme Edition CPU

Are you talking about your i7-950 ????? this one is not unlock

yup ex. like 950 :] since 980x is all to set multi x30 enjoy your stay :] and i trying to get stable 4,0 with ht at lowest v cpu and it fail all time on r3g anyway my future plans is to make LC on CPU and try going @4,4 ...
