    Default Ga-Ep45-ud3p Bios settings newb Question

    Hey, I recently purchased a ep45-ud3p motherboard with a Intel Q6600, and a G'skill 4GB (2 x 2GB) F2-8000CL5D-4GBPQ. I hadn't put the parts together because I'm still waiting for my heatsink to come in a day or two. I'm wondering how I should set my bios in preparation for overclocking? Like what features to turn on/off? Should I flash the bios to a f7a?

    I would stick to a Non beta BIOS for starters until you are ready to try it out. Disable this for overclocking >>>

    Advanced Settings
    Limit CPUID Max. to 3.....................: [Disabled]
    No-Execute Memory Protect............: [Enabled]
    CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E)................: [Disabled]
    C2/C2E State Support....................: [Disabled]
    x C4/C4E State Support..................: [Disabled]
    CPU Thermal Monitor 2(TM2) ...........: [Enabled]
    CPU EIST Function.........................: [Disabled]
    Virtualization Technology................: [Disabled] Enabled if you use Vmware/Virtual PC

    And be sure to change this from Turbo >>>
    DRAM Performance Control
    Performance Enhance...................: [STANDARD]

    Aside from that you will need to manually set your ram voltage and add some MCH Voltage (Maybe 1.24-1.28)

    If you need more help once you get started let us know and We can for sure help you out

    Hey Lsd I finally got my monitor to work, I don't know if it was because I plugged the 4 pin connector to the atx_12v_2x4 or because I cleared the cmos. I have both my rams plugged in atm. So what other settings do I need to configure?

    If I understood what that was saying I wouldn't have asked for direct help, I'm having a hard time understanding the tutorials and yes I have read through them. I would appreciate it if Lsd can help me prepare my bios setting so I can start overclocking. Anyone know should I flash my bios to at least f5 or f7a?

    If you are not using AHCI or RAID your drives will be labeled as IDE/PATA not a issue.

    Yes you have to connect either a 4Pin ATX 12V or a 8Pin EPS 12V to that for your CPU to get power

    I would Qflash to the latest NON Beta BIOS, or Beta if you like. Be sure you load optimized and save/apply/reboot BACK to the BIOS as you will need to set your SATA/Disk settings again >>>

    Hey LSD I keep trying to increase the System Memory Multiplier to 4.00A but my bios reboots 2-3 times and say the OC is bad so I lowered it to 3.00a. When I use Intel Burn Test I failed immediately with these settings.

    Edit: I updated the bios to f7a, where do you go to see if its updated or not.
    Edit#2:I only have 1 4 pin connector connected to the atx_12v_2x4 which should be connected with a 8 pin connector. I have two 4pins to connect to it and only one fits, the other one doesnt seem to match so I didn't plug it in. Could it be because of that I can't seem to get my system stable?

    What do you mean 333 trap? Can you specify.
