[Techpowerup.com] Overclocking on Intel P45 Motherboards is Harder Than you Might Thi

Some of you waiting for Intel P45 might consider this article rather interesting. After spending some time talking in depth to a couple of MSI's P45 engineers and Tony Leach from OCZ Technology, the guys over at bit-tech.net reported that Intel P45 motherboards will be more complex for overclocking than current mainstream motherboards. With Intel P45 you'll need to spend extra time learning how to fine tweak settings like GTL Reference Voltages, CPU VTT and its relation to GTLs, Clock Skews, CPU PLL Voltages typically available only in current high-end X48 chipsets.
Overclocking Intel's P45 is said to be more complex than it has been on previous boards - you're going to need to do a lot of specialist fine tuning. After spending time today talking in depth to a couple of MSI's P45 engineers and considerably more to Tony Leach from OCZ Technology, who spends a lot of time QAing BIOSes for companies like Asus, DFI and MSI, it looks like overclocking is going to become an increasingly more complicated art with the release of Intel's P45 chipset, as it mirrors many of the tweaks the current high-end X48 chipset offers.

Looks like oc'ing is becoming more a matter of trial and error tweaking than shoving voltages at the system

DFI might have a head start in this department since they've been doing this since DFI UT P35 days!

Anyone got a post where you can learn all the meanings of the settings [Rampage bios i'm using]
Have read the X48 Anandtek article and still am a little confused

Anyone got a good guide/link

thanks
