does anyone here have the same setup? i can't seem to get past 3.3ghz. i was aiming to reach 50% OC(3.6ghz). i've tried cranking up all voltages concerned but to no avail. im starting to think that its probably the motherboard's limit for a quad.

ya, the 650i were good for duals however due to the only 3 phase voltage regulator amoung other things the 650i was never as good at overclocking quads as the 680i's were, if you really need to go higher get a board like a 750i sli
