The guys still managed to overclock. No DIGI+ VRM on this one though, so no options for it I assume. (I've not seen the board specifically)

Also, what was the offset voltage and other overclocking options set to?

However I am unable to run Prime 95 or the Intel burn test for more than a few seconds without crashing.
Are there other settings that need to be adjusted as well as the two mentioned.
