Overclocking Fun at 3.8GHz!!!

For fun, I decided to see how high this board/CPU combo could go to just boot into Vista x64 (which can be a stability test of it's own!).

I maxed all the voltages in BIOS, set the FSB at 425x9 and tried to boot Vista... No go! After about 50 reboots, trying nearly every GTL setting there was, I finally got it to boot long enough to take this screen shot (click to enlarge).

It crashed immediately upon starting OCCT. :)
