    Not sure for your exact model but I have 2 ASUS mobos myself. When i turn it on at the green screen, it says if i push 4, i can control the over clocking that way through core unlocker. DO you have that?

    Post up your "Pre" AI Tweaker settings and I will try my best to walk you through it.

    This website shows all of the screenshots of my BIOS: http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/asus_p5q3/3.htm




    Ignore the Specs in this picture, my specs are in my first post!

    Also, I think I found it. Is it in Advanced, then CPU Ratio Setting? If it is can someone tell me a good multiplier ratio? Thanks in advance.

    Start low and work your way up to the point you become unstable. Then back it down a little to find the sweet spot. Should be in the 3.90 range. Watch your voltage too! Minimal voltage increases. If you have a good PSU you might be able to adjust you VRam voltage. Just bump it up a little, say .5v and tighten up the timing. OCing RAM can be tricky. You will know before windows even loads, that you RAM is unstable because you will BSOD immediately. I wouldn't start on your RAM until you have your CPU stable and the temps are good.
