Ok the turbo ratio will be on the first page of the extreme tweaker tab. Just to be sure go in there and look one more time. Click the back button up there. If it is not there Hit F5 to set defaults while you are there and see if it shows up.

Seems realy strange that i cant see those options or that i have the vs of 2.00.1208 at the bottom of the picture vs all the new motherboards have vs 2.00.1201

Yeah I'm not sure why you don't have the turbo ratio option. Let's try this set the cpu level up to 4.4 GHz and post a screen shot please.

Nate152,
Not sure if you would like a new thread... LMK
I am not new to building systems, but I am new to overclocking.
I sprung for the RIVBE + i7-4960X + 16GB 1866 Corsair Dominator Memory.
I would like to overclock and create a stable system at a nice speed.
I have tried the defaults provided on the board but they fail every time.
a Walk through would be much appreciated. JP-DUB

Hello jpwarlok, Welcome to the ROG forum. As much as I would like to help you, I am not familiar with the RIVE boards. I will suggest to start a thread in the General Hardware and overclocking section where someone that is familiar with your board will be able to help you much better. Here is a guide you can check out on overclocking your rampage iv board.
