    Sorry lol didn't know what you meant when you said
    ACT to ACT Delay (tRRD)_________ 3-4
    Rank Write to READ Delay________9-11
    Write to Precharge Delay_________ 11-14
    Refresh to ACT Delay______________ 52-62
    Read to Precharge Delay__________ 4-6
    Static tRead Value_______________ 7-10
    Static tRead Phase Adjust________ 1-31 << Leave on Auto, Zero, or 1-31

    Am I supposed to pick a value between those figures?

    Also, what do you mean by .2 on the ram? Do you mean voltage? Cause it's set at +0.3v...

    So 1.3v is not sufficient for a 45nm Q9450 to reach 3ghz?

    Sorry for the misinterpretation of your answers, and thanks for the help so far.

    You are supposed to set them to the highest number, then later you can try to lower them ONE AT A TIME and test after each move.

    Ahh I see now, you said .2 on the ram is what made me say that. .3 is good

    As for your CPU voltage only you and your chip and other hardware and cooling solution knows what will work. Going by what someone else uses for 3GHz is not going to work

    I would say if it double or triple reboots on your with all of the above settings on the highest then no 1.3 may not be enough. But I suspect it may be ok and you just needed some of those ram settings set properly. But yeah if it keeps failing I would add somre more CPU voltage to be sure that is not the issue

    If none of this helps then you should test that ram at stock settings and stock timings with memtest86+ to be sure you did not get a DOA set, it does happen with every company sometimes

    Those were your suggestions right? They didn't work. I've even tried all the system memory multipliers...as well as dropping the fsb to 350 and trying all the memory multipliers...nothing worked.

    Hmmm, can you test the ram on a different system to ensure you did not get a DOA set of ram, or it has not started dying since you last used it (If it is not new). Sometimes you do get DOA sticks from any brand. Other then that those values should have booted you in no problems, so if that ram is indeed found to be good after a test on a separate system I would think you may need more CPU voltage.

    I would say maybe your NB is getting too hot, but I would guess not since the system is not working!

    Probably not on another system....I can test with memtest if that helps?
    How bout changing the sticks...swapping them to opposite slots...will that help?

    I don't think the NB is getting too hot...temperatures in the BIOS are really good...

    Thanks

    Well I wanted you to test them in a different system to be sure if they have errors it is the ram not the board. Yeah, I meant memtest86+, here is the latest >>>
    Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool - Version 2.01

    If you can only test on that PC then please test stick separately in slot one at stock speed, stock voltages and AUTO timings

    I say try this because as I said before you should not be having any issues with those timings as they are pretty loose. Yeah you could try swapping slots, just keep them in the same color slots.

    Alright...just tested each stick. Both of them passed. I also tried overclocking with just 1 stick...still no go.
    I tried using the other coloured pair of slots...with 1 stick and 2 sticks, neither could overclock...

    When you say overclock, what are you trying to run them at just 1066 or more?

    Ok, Can you now memtest them at the settings you are trying to use if you can get it to reboot and let you boot from memtest. Sometimes if unstable you can still run bootable things just not get into windows. Just want to try this to see if it is indeed you need more CPU volts

    I'm back xD
    Forgot all about this thread lol.
    But yea. Still the same problem :(
    I hear people say that this board has common problems with overclocking. Is that true? :'(
