    Default P35-DS3L w/ 1GB x4 Dominator 1066 DDR2

    I am running my P35-DS3L machine with 4 sticks of Dominator 1066 DDR2 with a mild overclock to 3.03 GHz on an E6550 C2D. I mostly run Leopard 10.5.5 and occasionally XP SP3. Seems to run stable so far but in the past I have had troubles with data corruption using over 2 GB ram. I searched this forum for advice and came up with the following settings using the F8 bios. It doesn't seem to have all the possible settings that I found in the template file filled out below though. Perhaps this template is for a later bios than F8?
    Anyhow let me know if my settings are reasonable for this level of ram and overclocking.

    TIA,
    Solow

    Well those settings are in all BIOS's, but when you flashed to F8 you did load and apply optimized defaults right? Please read this for more flashing info and tips regarding loading optimized defaults >>>
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/bios...h-guide-27576/

    Anyway, if you still are not finding those all you have to do is Press Control + F1 on the MAIN page of the BIOS then go into MIT Section and you will find them

    Here would be optimal settings for what you mentioned above >>>

    Robust Graphics Booster___________ [Auto or FAST]
    CPU Clock Ratio ____________ [7]
    Fine Clock Ratio ____________[0.5] << your CPU does not support this, so 0.0
    CPU Host Clock Control_ [Enabled]

    PCI Express Frequency (Mhz)_______ [100]
    C.I.A. 2__________________________ [Disabled]
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD)____ [2.40] - ram under-clocked to 1039
    Memory Frequency (MHz) ___________ 800 1039

    Performance Enhance = [Standard]

    CAS Latency Time________________ 5
    Dram RAS# to CAS# Delay_________ 5
    Dram RAS# Precharge Delay_______5
    Precharge Delay (tRAS)__________ 15/18

    ACT to ACT Delay (tRRD)_________3-4
    Rank Write to READ Delay________3-6
    Write to Precharge Delay_________ 4-8
    Refresh to ACT Delay______________ 52-62
    Read to Precharge Delay__________ 3-5
    Static tRead Value_______________7-10
    Static tRead Phase Adjust________ [Auto] << Always Auto

    System Voltage Control____ [Manual]
    DDR2 OverVoltage Control__ [+0.300V]
    PCI-E OverVoltage Control_ [+0.1V]
    FSB OverVoltage Control___ [+0.1V]
    (G)MCH OverVoltage Control [+0.3V]
    CPU Voltage Control_______ [NORMAL] << Please manually find and set this yourself, Auto/Normal will give it way to much

    Limit CPUID Max. to 3.....................: [Disabled]
    No-Execute Memory Protect............: [Enabled]
    CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E)................: [Disabled]

    I did the bios update months ago and likely did not set optimized defaults. But I did it just now and then tried keying cntrl-F1 to get the rest of the settings to show up. So now I have these settings:

    Robust Graphics Booster___________ [Auto or FAST]

    Fine Clock Ratio ____________[0.5] << your CPU does not support this, so 0.0

    Memory Frequency (MHz) ___________ 800 1039

    Performance Enhance = [Standard]

    CAS Latency Time________________ 5
    Dram RAS# to CAS# Delay_________ 5
    Dram RAS# Precharge Delay_______5
    Precharge Delay (tRAS)__________ 15

    ACT to ACT Delay (tRRD)_________3
    Rank Write to READ Delay________3
    Write to Precharge Delay_________ 4
    Refresh to ACT Delay______________ 52
    Read to Precharge Delay__________ 3

    CPU Voltage Control_______ [1.25V]

    Limit CPUID Max. to 3.....................: [Disabled]

    I ran memtest86 2.01 for a complete cycle plus a couple of test #5 cycles with success. I'll run it overnight when I get a chance. So far all is well!

    Thanks for the feedback and setting info!

    Great to hear! Yes, please do run some longer memtest's as that may or may not be fully stable, but looking good!

    Thanks,
    Any comments on the choice of 1.25V for CPU Voltage Control? I copied that setting off other peoples listings.

    Well all chips are different so what works for others may or may not work for you at any said speed. Is it Orthos stable? You also have to keep in mind what you set in the BIOS will be less in windows at idle and even less at load. You can track this amount with CPU-z
