    Hi samerafach

    Please review this article regarding OCing your chip:
    As you probably already know, not all Haswell chips of the same spec will achieve the same OC gaol.
    The article talks about how to determine whether or not you have an average chip or above average chip and the OC you can achieve.

    Please reset your CMOS to default values as mentioned and follow the advice given in the article.
    I never use third party applications to OC and only OC from within the Bios.
    Try AI suite by all means, I don't use it myself. It is all a learning curve but getting to know your Bios is the way to go.
    The article should clear up how to manually set the OC you want.
    1. Test for stability at stock frequency and voltage.
    2. Raise the multiplier and adjust voltage.
    3. Test for stability again and if stable, rinse and repeat.
    4. Save the OC profile when satisfied.
    You can obtain your XMP profile for your DIMMs in the SPD information tab in AI Suite. Timings and voltage are best keyed into Bios manually.

    Good luck and stability rules.

    Raja has written a guide on Haswell-E overclocking. You can find the link in my signature.

    Thank you guys. I think we can mark this question as solved.

    I was able to get a stable overclock at 4.5 GHz using the instructions from @MeanMachine and the nice website from @Chino (Haswell-E Overclocking Guide).

    By the way I have to say that the overclocking guide from Asus was not helpful and needs to be organized and made more clear.

    Thanks again guys for your time.
