    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 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.

    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
