    So what do you need help with still? Sorry I been gone and our PM's and this thread have me confused about what you need help with still

    And hey, sorry that Info I gave you is about AHCI on ICH9 not RAID. You wont be able to do RAID on anything but the Gigabyte Purple ports on this board

    Well those settings are for 8Gb ram. I'm running now with only 4GB ram (2x2GB) cos the 8GB didn't want to run proper with any settings with this old board.

    Ahh OK! Welll try these then. 2.50B, that is not possible either!

    Ok...I'll try theses settings.

    But as I have said before ...all setting i have under SPD are these

    Auto
    2.00
    2.40
    3.20
    3.33
    4.0+
    2.50
    3.00
    4.0~
    Which of theses should I pick to get the most optimal?

    Sorry if im being thick...but this is all I can find...maybe ur looking at the wrong boards bios or something? :/

    Na, All boards are the same. It just depends on YOUR Board being P35 as it does not show you all the correct options. Here is a Image that shows you all options for Intel Chipset straps and there letters per strap, of course some GA boards use Symbols instead of letters and some are crippled by the BIOS which leaves out some multi's/straps. >>>



    You want the lowest strap you can get stable depending on your FSB. So you would likely want to use a B or A strap if you can keep it stable since your BIOS is missing the D Strap. So 2.40B or 2.50A unless you change your FSB, but then the thing to do would be test a multi from strap A and B and see which works the best and is the most stable for you
