Default Asus R3E - What To Expect

I apologize if I have this in the wrong area. I looked but this was the only one that referred to the 1366 motherboard, Gigabyte not Asus.

I was able to buy a R3E with an i7 950 for $300 and I also picked up a i7 920 for $40.
If anyone still remembers their settings, it would be very helpful.

I currently have the i7 920 installed with the multi at 12
I'm currently stuck @ 215 on the FSB. Any suggestions????
I've also paired the board with Triple Channel Corsair Dominator GT DDR3-2000 8-8-8-24 (Hypers). I'm hoping next month to be able to purchase an i7 980x.

Thank You For Your Time

You need to increase the PCI-E frequency to continue climbing. Cold helps too.

I'm setting it up right now for a DICE run. I'm hoping to break the block @ 215, increase the PCIe slowly or dial in 110 and see how it goes????

You might also need QPI slowmode and lots of VTT.
