    Default Ga-ep45-extreme q9550 8gb reaper

    I get about 3 hours through Everests Stability test and it reboots. I have been messing with the number for days.
    I use to get numerous errors or BSOD's, now just random reboots.... How can I tweak this to get it more stabile?
    Temps are: mb 35, cpu 46, core1 60, core2 54, core3 56, core4 56, gpu 43, nb 33.

    sounds like a mem voltage problem...trying giving your ram more voltage (as i doubt the stock voltage for 1066Mhz ram is 1.8V)...trying giving it 2.0V or upping it to 1.9V...

    And also seeing as though you are running 8GB of ram, try also upping the northbridge voltage...

    I really want to hit that 4.03 point, but it is difficult to tweak everything. I have learned that in some cases less is better than more. This is a trap that we all seem to be drawn into, thinking more voltage is better as long as it does create too much heat.

    Well if i am right, then the stability will be there...you can't have stability without providing enough voltages...

    1.3475 is a low voltage for 4.03Ghz on a quad...

    i would up that to about 1.36-1.37...

    Be careful with the voltage. According to Intel the break voltage is 1.3625, I know that I do not want to go over that nor do I want to go over 70c.

    See Intel® Core™2 Quad Processor Q9550 - SLB8V

    Hy!

    Which Repaer is Yours?

    One Tip:

    CAS Latency Time.............................. 5
    tRCD ......................................... 5
    tRP'.......................................... 5
    tRAS.......................................... 18
    Advanced Timing Control
    tRRD........................................... 4
    tWTR........................................... 4
    tWR............................................8
    tRFC...........................................64-68
    tRTP........................................... 4
    Command Rate (CMD) ............................ 2

    Prime x64 small FFT is stable?
    Small FFT stress the CPU
    Blend Test stress the NB/Memory/CPU
