    you happy with the ram timings? if so you can lock the thread maybe...

    cheers

    i have the exact same CPU, motherboard and RAM.

    i tried the suggested settings, system booted fine, however, it wouldnt pass Orthos or Super Pi. wouldnt last a full second and error before it had a chance to get anywhere.

    any suggestions to try and make it stable?

    Well first before you run those types of tests you need to make sure your ram will pass 5 or more passes of memtest86+ >>>
    Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

    Otherwise you are not going to know if you need looser ram settings or more voltages.

    See if your ram is stable and if it is (More then one pass YES for sure)

    Post me your full settings you are trying and I will see if I can help and specs (Link to your ram as well, and how much you have in what configuration)

    Hey LSD i have been thinking of clocking the system to run at 1066mhz ram which will require dropping the FSB to 400 = 3.4ghz With the ram running at 1066mhz it should give me similar performance with read, write will be out maybe 1000 points but latency will be similar. Without putting stress on the CPU, cos i dont know how ppl do it but i need to run to VCORE at 1.38 in bios which read 1.34 -1.36 in CPUZ to run at 3.867Mhz. Otherwise it's not prime stable.

    Now i had a tinker last night and got it to work but i went back in to the bios to change another value which were voltage i think and no go!

    Had to clear the CMOS and back to square 1 and still couldn't get it to work! LOL no matter what value i put in i couldn't get it to work. Here is what i have changed in the BIOS.

    seems what i did last night to get the ram running at ummm i think it was 3:2 at 533 mhz? i cannot achieve that again. Tried running at

    FSB @ 444
    MCH @ 333
    multiplier @2.40
    Memory 800-1066 the highest i got it to is 1032......

    Ram voltage @ 2.2v

    Static read value @ 9

    Driving strengh @ 1066

    they dont seem to run at 1066hz or am i idiot?

    Hmm, all looks ok to me, cept maybe use 401/2 for FSB

    Some chips are just volt hogs that way, luck of the draw really

    You could up the skew since you have a quad and see if that helps >>>

    CPU >>> 150

    MCH >>> 250

    No at that FSB you wont get 1066 stable, you can try 2.40B memory multi but I doubt you will get it stable without a HUGE amount of MCH Voltage

    You will have to use 2.00D with tighter timings or 2.66D with looser timings

    your advance timing is too tight ... need loosing that up little if want to run 1066 ... tRFC for 1066 i need atleast 58 ... tRTP = 4 ...
