    yeah i think so . auto voltage setting in this motherboard is the worst thing about it.
    so what should i do to hit 3.6+ Mhz
    i think you know better than anyone here because you had this motherboard befor.

    Ya, I still have this board setup actually.

    Hmm, well all chips are different so you will need to find your own stable CPU and Vtt voltages, but here is a good starting point >>>

    i did as you said . even i printed a paper copy of those setting.
    well after setting those voltage . system boot then reboot .boot then reboot .
    after that . startup screan says same thing about Error main bios checkms..........
    and then system reboot . bios back to F2 yes F2

    So did you flash back to F8 yet?

    You need to post for me your exact settings you set that failed, I can't guess here... Well I could but ya know that could go anywhere

    Sounds like you had to little of voltage or set something ram related way to tight

    Did you try 2.50A yet? Are you back on F8?

    Why did you leave all those ranges I gave you above? If you are using Auto, some of them I would advise not to use Auto as they may be causing your issue.

    So please where I gave a ram timing range set to the highest value for now

    Voltage ranges I gave will need to be set to, maybe higher maybe not. But I would start at the upper end of the ranges provided.

    I can't help you get going or to the cause of the issue if you leave all that on Auto, it's just to many variables that could be the failing point

    yea i have tried 2.50A too its booting and befor loading the system blue screan then restart. i can set voltage very well but this motherboard some thing wrong about it. its not compatible with Q6600 i mean for overclocking Q6600 .its some thing about bios. did you tried to hit 3.6 MHz + with yours by Q6600. i have reached 3.6Mhz by P31 Chipset check the photes
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/over...21/index2.html

    its stable at 367 MHz and memory at 550.5 MHz (12:8) ( 3.30 Mhz Vs 1100 Mhz )
    at this setting

    Have you tried a older BIOS? Newer is not always better

    Yes this board will for sure do 3.6 with a Q6600. You should try out .70-.745 MCH Ref, see my signature for how to properly set MCH Ref
