    I had 2 rounding errors
    Code:
    [Mon Apr 20 03:50:16 2009]
    Self-test 1024K passed!
    Self-test 1024K passed!

    Self-test 768K passed!
    Self-test 768K passed!
    After that..all passes for 6 more hours.

    Just changed static tRead Values to 9 and it worked!

    I will pick up a CD today, so i can boot from memtest3.8..
    But i will run prime for a few hours while i am away.

    Thanks

    By the way.. that prime test which had rounding errors was with 3.57GHz (420x8.5).

    bumped it up to 450x8.5

    ran prime for 5 hours.. everything fine except
    worker #2 ran for 42 minutes and then had a rounding error (was 0.5, expected less than 0.4)
    error came after 'Test 6, 5300 Lucas-lehmer iterations of M13669345 using FFT length 768k.

    Use Memtest86+, some have had problems with Memtest3.x and they had no problems with the 86+ version.

    If you're running with:
    CPU Termination…..... 1.200V.......: [1.20]
    increase this to 1.22 volts. This might take care of the Prime95 rounding errors.

    I've assisted several others with Q9550 setups and your bios settings are in the same ballpark when they're running at 3.8 GHz.

    The only difference is that you're using DDR2-800 memory and they were using DDR2-8500 memory.
    There are a few settings you can try.
    1) test with CPU Vcore 1 or 2 clicks higher.
    2) lower MCH Core 1 step at a time, going as low as 1.05 volts.

    Have you fully tested your memory with Memtest86+ yet, letting it run for at least 6 - 10 full passes?

    Do you have other memory you can test with?

    A "last ditch" test would be to:
    1) underclock your memory to 667 MHz using the 2.00B System Memory
    Multiplier.
    2) test with only 1 memory module.

    @rhazzy,

    Create your own overclocking thread.
    Things get complicated when we are working with two similar systems in one thread.
    Give your thread a good title that will attract others with similar interests:
    motherboard
    cpu
    memory
    You get the idea.

    Check out this link for what we need to get started. Go to the middle of the post that begins with "If you want specific bios suggestions.... "
    You will make it much easier for us to help if you include your system components in your signature.
    There are a lot of good people in our forum that will help you out. We are often dealing with many threads at the same time, so start your thread now.
