    Fixes the multiplier hard-limit for 2500K/2600K cpu's, no more hard wall of 47-50x randomly. It's the setting that Intel had exclusively at first pre-release... now all can aim for 55x multi :D.

    Boards with updated BIOS in the link:

    GIGABYTE

    - P67A-UD4 (F6x)
    - P67A-UD5 (F5x)
    - P67A-UD7 (F6x)


    ASUS

    - P8P67 Deluxe (1053)
    - P8P67 Pro (1053)
    - Maximus IV Extreme (0653)

    INTEL

    - DP67BG (1780)

    Great news! Will the Micro ATX Asus P67 boards get the same update?

    overclocking made easy... 5.5ghz on air is impressive through multi alone

    Fun for benchmarking, but I can't imagine running long at 1.65v.

    The voltages listed by CPU-Z are not accurate as the tool does not have proper volt reading for Sandy Bridge yet.

    So alot of people seem pretty comfortable giving these 1.45v for extended oc's. Has something changed on Intel's official voltage guidance? I though 1.38 was about as high as you want to go?

    i'd read the Intel white paper (when released) before cranking the voltage

    1.6-1.7v is ok if you have the cooling to handle it. DO NOT exceed 1.8v.

    I believe that applies for Gigabyte boards only...Asus boards are fine as it's reading my voltages within reasonable distance with LLC changed to different levels. Gigabyte boards' VTT is being read instead.

    MSI bios have been added, as well as more Asus models!

    I thought most if not all of the P67 mATX boards didn't support oc'ing?

    Awesome... Now hopefully we'll have seen the last of the "intel has killed overclocking" threads

    Tcase can't be measured accurately with software. More info can be found here. You have to rely off of the distance to TJMAX.

    It'd be nice if I could INSTALL the 1053 bios. The bios flasher says it's not a valid EPI (or whatever) bios. And without it, the auto-OC that ASUS uses blue-screens my computer.
