    I uninstalled Command Center today, as I do not use it(Doug & Steve have taught me to forget software overclocking and use the BIOS), plus the DRAM options were not working at all after the Creators Update, and that pushed me to the point of ripping it out(uninstalled with Geek Uninstaller, the searched for any left overs it missed with UltraSearch, and lastly went into Regedit, and found all the software keys and deleted them). I was only using it to throw my fans on to full speed when benchmarking, but the last couple of weeks, I found my fan curve set in BIOS will keep it just as cool. Plus Command Center would mess with the curve, even if I didn't make any changes myself, like dropping the 65-80C down to 0%!

    For this run I turned off PickPic, and GeForce, and a couple of my MSI stuff like USB Speedup(great piece of software that actually speeds up USB 3.0 reads & writes), and my mouse's Gigabyte Force, and so on.

    My advice on achieving the highest possible score in Passmark is as follows: (using my settings as an example)

    1: I set in the following in the BIOS: CPU @ 4.8, Cache @ 4.8, Voltage @ 1.45v RAM @ 3200 15-16-16-35-1T @ 1.3530v (to allow a boot if all goes balls up)

    2: Tweak system: windows desktop to solid colour, performance options to best performance, Nvidia control panel options setting to achieve best performance, turn off cache write buffer in disk policies, Kill all programs in the systray that are not needed then kill unneeded processes and set power profile to maximum.

    3: turn every fan to full speed.

    4: Open my overclocking utilities (Asus and Firestorm)

    5: set my CPU to 5.0 GHz and Cache to 5.0 GHz with the voltage/power profile needed to keep benchmark stable (this is a trade secret lol) using ASUS software.

    6: Set the GPU OC in firestorm 305 + to core, 815 -825 + on MEM, Power/Temp target to MAX and GPU MAX VOLT to 100%

    7: Open Passmark.

    8: (Run each section one at a time) and I start with the Disk benchmark, CPU, RAM, 2D then 3D.

    9: If 3D score is where you'd expect it to be from previous runs then leave it well a loan.

    10: back to ASUS OC Tool and set CPU to 5.1 GHz and Cache to 5.1 GHz with and small increase in Voltage.

    11: Rerun RAM one sub section at a time and check that the scores are increasing. If OK then move to the CPU and 2D sections.

    12: Run the CPU sub sections and rerun one at a time and after each single run move to the 2D section and run one of the sub sections. If an increase in score is witnessed then continue. (avoid the CPU physics sub section as it may kill your system if your CPU is on the edge) Keep going one at a time between CPU and 2D until you've rerun them all. (leave a small pause between to allow cooling). If all goes well you will see some nice increases.

    13: Last rerun the 3D section one at a time pausing between each run to allow heat to disperse and lower temps.

    14: take the screen dump and kick worfs ass


    NOTES: if you beat your own personal bests please take screen shots before continuing with any other rerun as I had around 7 dumps beating my score (mostly the competitions score lol) defore finishing with the final score.

    Hope this help anyone.

    When you two folks OC your puter, which setting do you use when testing.
    Manual Mode
    Offset Mode
    Adaptive Mode.
    I would guess it would be Manual mode....

    Interesting Doug ...thats what I do most of the time....but I can't get past x47 ....I can boot into Windows @48, but not much is stable ...suppose its cause I won't give it a Really high voltage setting.

    Plus I will never use any software to OC, only use my bios settings.

    Your board has the capability to water cool your MOSFETs & VRMs, you need to take advantage of that.
    I just wish my board had more VRMs and LLC capability in the BIOS, If I had a better board, my system would be a true monster, without "cheating" and having to de-lid my CPU
