    Could you guys help me please?
    You are the only one that can tell really. All look within reason. If they are stable than they are just fine.
    What is memory max voltage specs?

    20 minutes OCCT are not enough, run 8+ hours medium data set to be more sure.
    IBT(IntelBurnTest) may help indicate if there's enough Vcore and/or if it can be lowered.

    Would be better if you make your own thread, post screen capture of MemSet main(click >>) and SPD(click spd) windows.
    Add this system spec to your signature including link to ram specs or at least model/part number.

    They do look ok, are you failing any tests? If so, you may need to try a bit more MCH Voltage to start with

    Continued from page 17...
    Hi I took some time off, those late nights along with BSOD's & other instability issues drove me mad so I took a breather.
    Anyway back now so I probably should start where I left off. With my current setting I finally got my baby to work, only this time did what
    Salty suggested, or just say I detoxed myself from that A2.5 divider that I was hooked on. Good news it worked without the need of more juice to the CPU.
    As it turned out or I realized I should say it was that divider keeping me back, the CPU itself is well capable of 4Ghz & reasonably
    cool with temps of: As according to CoreTemp Idle @38~41 Load @60~62.
    Speed Fan shows exactly the same as Real Temp idle @ 44~47 Load @62~65, Overall OC boost: CPU +34.6% _ FSB +27.6%
    Salty thanks for all your help, Lsdmeasap superb tutorial without it I'd be still on 3.0Ghz thanks a lot.

    Good one. You stuck with it. Nice to hear I may have managed to help too.

    The cpu volts would be high for my E8500, but if you have temps under control ... 4.037GHz, quite good for a QX9650 as far as I kno. I'm guessing it's not hot where u compute at.

    My only thoughts;
    Static tRead Value : Rather than auto around 7 is good. I would suggest 7. You're after lowest number that yr PC boots stably on. Auto sets this too high/slow. Memset can show u what auto sets it to under "performance level". Only a small boost but looks good in Everest memory bench tool.

    Static tRead Phase Adjust : as far as I know, best left on auto.

    Loadline Calibration: Disputed setting. Up to the individual. If you have it auto or disabled with yr cpu volts shown, then enabling might allow use of lower nominal vcore. Not sure if that affects temps.

    Keep on clockin'

    @Doruk G
    Try increasing MCH OverVoltage graduately up to +0.125

    Run 6+ passes of memtest86+ before running windows.
    If memtest86+ pass, in Windows run Prime95 blend torture for 8+ hours.
    Watch core temps with CoreTemp/RealTemp to make sure there's no problem with CPU cooling, they should be below 60c for stock settings I think.
    Those programs can be found in http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/late...30/#post284762

    @Chike

    Hi thank you for your swift reply.
    I just tried to change the values for stability but when ever i try to memtest i get the red errors at the beginning.

    Could this be a bad ram problem or could you please add me all the field to test for stable system.

    @Doruk G
    May be bad ram or slot, try each stick individually, try different slots if both fail.
    Is "System Memory Multiplier (SPD)____ [2.00] Auto" correct? The 2.00 is there or only "Auto"?

    @Chike

    I just tried to change the slot for both modules. I still have the same issue. I haven't got chance to try one bye one.

    As your question

    Is "System Memory Multiplier (SPD)____ [2.00] Auto" correct? The 2.00 is there or only "Auto"?


    I select auto for it.

    But i noticed that when i overclocked my fsb like 333X9 in the next restart i saw that in the bios itself recognize the modules frequency as 800 Mhz.
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD)_________ [3.20]
    Memory Frequency _________[800]______[1066]

    What should it be causing this. I will try separately today.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for an informative thread, but I need help to update my Backup Bios on the P35-DQ6 motherboard. I was told that it's just keyboard strokes to update the Backup Bios to the Main Bios.
    Thanks!
