Hi there,

not sure how similar the BIOS is between your motherboard and the GA-Z68X-UD3P-B3 board that I am using but you might want to look through this thread: http://forum.giga-byte.co.uk/index.php/topic,8039.0.html where I get 5.2GHz from the I5 2500k as it might give you some ideas and pointers.
Remember, when all else fails a cup of tea and a good swear will often help! It won't solve the problem but it will make you feel better.

thanks, that helped a little bit. I might just leave the oc at 4.3
