    Can you test each stick of ram one at a time at stock settings for 5-10 passes to be sure none are faulty >>>
    Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

    And please tell me where you have your drives connected and post me a image of your Integrated peripherals page of the BIOS please

    And you do have driving strength profiles, are you using the latest BIOS? If so, and you did load and apply optimized please try the hotkey. On the MAIN page of the BIOS press control + F1 and then go into MIT and see if you find it. If you are not using the latest BIOS I would suggest you get one stick of ram in there and be sure it is ok and flash with Qflash to the latest BIOS

    Auto is for sure not good, and may likely not work (Hard to say what it wrong since you cannot load windows to check what Auto is giving you)

    Appreciate the help! :)

    I tested the memory with no problems. Updated the BIOS again with f5. With the new settings you gave I was able to install XP. Could only run memory at 800mhz.

    I still couldn't find the 'driving' setting. I do have something called 'load line calibration' though which is disabled. I also did have CPU EIST function, which I corrected below.

    How do I get to 1066 and faster? I don't understand why I can't when I have these slow settings and higher voltages. Same thing happens with Corsair Dominator memory.

    Here are my new settings.

    Nice to hear you finally got installed!

    Driving strengths are located here >>>


    So 4.00A did not work for you to get 1066? If not then you may need to overclock a bit to get stable at 1066, low FSB and high ram multi is not so stable sometimes is why

    You are using 2x1GB right? If so, try 4.00A again with MCH On Auto

    I found the driving setting. I was looking for something that said 'driving strength' so I never noticed it. Should I change those?

    Which MCH do I set to auto? There are several.

    I got the processor to overclock to 2.7Ghz, when I tried 3Ghz it wouldn't boot so I taking out a memory stick and was able to get back into the bios. I assume it has something to do with the memory settings.

    Should I be changing the settings that you gave before that helped me get it to work? I noticed on some of them you said 'for now'. All my settings are the same as before, except for some reason it says 900mhz for the memory speed instead of 800mhz. Thanks!

    Yes you should set driving strength profiles. Test each with a memory benchmark that works for you to see which is best.

    When I said the MCH Auto, I meant MCH Freq. Latch

    Hmm, well let me know what you want to try to overclock to and I will advise again, ya I think I did give you some suggestions for stock with overclocking not in mind

    The MCH Freq latch is already on Auto. The memory speed is showing 900mhz. If it's better to be lower than 1066mhz thats ok with me, I just thought it should be 1066 because thats what the processor runs at.

    I want to overclock whatever I can for games, I don't think the video card can be though because it already comes overclocked. I guess the memory and processor, pci etc.. I don't want to spend hours tweaking, just basic overclocking. Right now the processor is at 2.7ghz and goes to 38 degrees under max load, the system temp is always 36 degrees. I'd like to get at least 3ghz if it's not too hot. Right now I have the memory at the slow speeds you suggested to get it to work.

    (G)MCH Frequency Latch...............: [Auto] -- try 333
    System Memory Multiplier ..............: 3.00A --- try 2.4b or 3.0b .. that should get you 1066
    tRFC...........................................48 -- loosing it up to 52-62

    Your CPU Stock FSB doesnt have much to do with your ram speed. Your CPU is actually 266 FSB x 4 = 1066

    And so yes, as said abvoe you have to raise your memory multiplier or CPU FSB to get 1066 ram speed

    I would use 333 CPU FSB and 3.20B for your ram multiplier to get 1066Mhz ram speed and 3.0Ghz CPU. Voltages will need manually set for sure, Termination, PLL and Vcore

    How much do I raise them?

    That all depends on your CPU. Please read the overclocking guide for tips on how to go about overclocking. it is not for your board I know, but it does teach you about how to overclock >>>
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/giga...g-guide-26112/

    Set PLL to stock value or less. And keep Vtt under Vcore, just raise your FSB until it fails then you know you need to add some Vcore until it boots. And add a little Vtt as you increase your vcore
