    I've always had negative affects setting the MCH higher than normal on my P35 board.

    What i would recommend you try for fault finding is to not allow the bios to set speeds through the SPD chip and to manually set your memory multiplier, so that your ram is running at 800mhz.
    This will essentially prove if the problem is ram related.

    I set the ram voltage to +0.35 and speedfan gave a voltage of 2.21V (in PC health status it just says 'OK' next to DDR18).

    Ran memtest, froze as usual =/

    Edit: These are all the speeds/timings ive tried:
    1gb 1066mhz 5-5-5-15
    2gb 1066mhz 5-5-5-15
    2gb 1066mhz 5-7-7-24

    2gb 667mhz auto timings failed boot
    2gb 800mhz auto timings failed boot (timings 4-4-4-12)
    2gb 1111mhz auto timings failed boot (timings 5-5-5-15 and 6-6-6-20 or around that, higher timings than 5-5-5-15)

    2gb 1066mhz 5-5-5-15 single channel

    1-2
    1-3
    2-4
    1-4

    new ram

    2gb 1066mhz 5-5-5-15
    4gb 1066mhz 5-5-5-15 froze faster


    When the ram is at 667/800/1111MHZ the system doesnt even reach post. It restarts, restarts then restarts with the default 1066mhz and 5-7-7-24 timings.

    Try Hwmonitor rather than speedfan CPUID

    Also you shouldn't need 2.2volts to run that ram at 800mhz. What memory multiplier are you using to run your ram at 800mhz? (i'm not sure what your cpu is)

    Have you updated the bios recently? If so did you load up the optimised defaults afterwards?

    With say 2GB you should:-

    1) Load up the bios optimised defaults, save and allow reboot.
    2) Re-enter the bios and setup your specifics.
    3) Performance Enhance = Standard
    4) Memory Multiplier = 2.40
    5) Main timings 5-5-5-15
    6) DDR2 voltage +0.1 - +0.2 (1.9-2.0volts)
    7) Save and allow restart

    I think its 2.4 ....or 2.6 (3.2 is 1066mhz).
    Hwmonitor shows the same voltage as speedfan.

    800mhz = 1.8 V? So I left the voltage on auto, still doesnt boot.

    I think the bios is on its newest version.

    Ill go double check now.

    According to the Screenshots the RAM is running at 1066, which is why I did recommend to increase RAM voltage.

    In post #12 you mentioned "new RAM", does that mean you tried different RAM and it still froze? If that's the case either both sets of RAM are abd (unlikely) or you ahve a defective board.

    The settings VorLonUK suggested are very relaxed, if that doesn't work your board is probably defective :(

    I ran memtest, it froze but it lasted longer than usual. (5.6% coverage rather than 2.2%). This was running at 1.98V...mmmmm

    Are you running memtest from Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool , ie version 2.11?

    I was not using that memtest.

    Its not really to test the ram as such, its just to put it under strain so it freezes. I was testing the ram a few times in Fallout 3 and Crysis (froze in 10~15 minutes).

    I am probably going to order a new motherboard soon... Any suggestions?
