    i should have been back here some time ago but i was a little distracted.

    at some point my settings kind of went back to stock except my fsb which is now 1066 instead of stock, like my core and bus speed, due to my multiplier still being intact. i'll post all the necessary info again, i know i still have this setting in one of my saved bios but if it switched then the setting wasn't ideal as i thought and tests showed at the time.

    1066 is stock FSB.
    BIOS settings should not revert as result of wrong settings, though they may not be applied. It could be due to power loss or leaving the PSU switch off for a long period of time.

    never had a power outage or kept the psu switch off long. my mistake about the fsb (i remember now that i went back to to oriiginal bios because the fsb was at 1366 or something like that while everything went back to stock. the numbers might be off because this happened a couple of months ago and i'm memory of everything is a little off)

    by the way, should i pay attention to the intel processor utility? it's showing a 'reported' 1132Mhz and 226 Ghz core.

    See what CPU-Z shows.

    Ya, that could just be a random error since your Ghz shows correctly in that program.

    What does CPU-z show?

    i changed my memory so i'll be starting from scratch again

    other change is that i'm dual booting win xp x86 and win7 x64 but i'm using win 7 x64 almost exclusively

    the memory: Patriot gamer extreme performance enhance latency 2 x 2gb, ddr 2 pc-6400, 5 5 5 12, stock volt 1.9v Patriot Memory - Products

    here's my cpu-z:



    memset:



    i'll update my bios settings tomorrow. any help or suggestions would be welcomed and appreciated.

    Just on a quick read thru,you seemed to be doing ok on the original memory,why did you change to the patriot ones?,maybe I missed something in the posts.

    Youll probably get some feedback from Chilke again or maybe psycho 101 since they have same family cpu once you get bios settings up again.

    @kick
    i was looking for at least 4 gb and as bad as the prices have become for ddr 2, especially pc-6400, it was a better deal to get 2 x 2 gb from patriot as opposed to getting the same xms2 2 x 1 gb mem and definitely better than xms2 2 x 2gb. i was looking for a deal for 2 x 2 gb ram with the same timings as the xms2 and voltage from other companies but they were either out of stock, expensive, outside of the city with high shipping rates or questionable quality.

    Did you test those settings for stability?
    How high do you plan to overclock?
    My M0 stepping CPU, same as yours, seems to get much hotter than newer CPUs steppings so your CPU cooler may be a bit limiting.
    Are all voltages, including DRAM Voltage, set auto?

    the stock settings were tested and stable

    i was thinking maybe 3.4-3.6 (i've seen different voltage results with the same revision so testing to see if i can get the same without hitting 1.38+ is my goal)

    the voltages are as shown as well as 'auto' (i may have forgotten to type 'auto in brackets for some)


    edit: i'll do these values again with the updated p45 template. i just found it today so i'll use that as opposed to the previous one i was using.
