Thread: Still cannot get Vista Stable




  1. #21

    Default Re: Still cannot get Vista Stable

    Is this your first time running OCCT?

    If you get an error in less than 2 minutes, then you're still VERY unstable.

    Yes, this is the first time. I just ran Linpack and it lasted 3 min 14 sec

    Any suggestions?

    Here are some suggestions:

    1. Run MemSet & EasyTune6. Test out different voltages & settings, and run OCCT each time to see if your stability improves.

    2. Play with MCH reference (decrease it 0.02V each time)

    3. Keep CPU Termination @ 1.200V & CPU PLL @ 1.500V

    3. Loosen your RAM's timings, or increase/decrease dram voltage.

    Each time you change a setting, run OCCT again.

    Sounds like a plan.... Let's see what happens

    Thanks,

    Bottom line is I have more work to do.
    The two problems may or may not be related.
    Have you tried to pause the boor sequence and then continue when you boot in the morning? This may indicate if it's a first boot problem or a timely related problem. I have no idea what may be the cause for each of them. but it's good to know.
    When you first boot in the morning press F8 after post and wait couple of minutes before you continue with normal boot.

    Posting your current settings along with MemSet screen capture (main window both channels, click ">>", and SPD window, click SPD) may assist of resolving the second problem.

    I spent the day adjusting MCH Ref and DRAM Voltage. I got to the point where I had a MCH Ref of 0.720 V and a DRAM Voltage of 1.840 V that would run 9 Min 33 Sec on OCCT before failure.

    BUT, when I tried to set those values in the cmos it was MAJOR unstable. Then I went back and set those exact same values in EZTune and it would blue screen.

    I am now really confused. I reloaded the Optimized defaults and change the memory timings to 6-6-6-20, better yet, here is the "adjusted" Optimized defaults cmos:

    It's a really unstable board out of the box. I know how you feel. I've had a b1tch of a time trying to get this board to be stable lol. It's definitely not as good as my EP45-UD3P in my closet, and I'm probably going to switch back to it very soon to be honest.

    Anyways, keep goin at it. and try setting Performance Level to 9, see if that helps.

    Finaly.

    It os clear from your memory profile it should have 9-9-9-24 timings for DDR-1333, setting them lower is asking for trouble, which you get.
    Is this your memory? If it is add the link to your signature.

    Lsdmeasap have said you may have trouble using 4.00D multi with 333FSB, and I see no reason to struggle with it, there's no benefit using DDR-1333 with 333FSB.

    Try 3.2 multiplier for DDR-1066 with timings on auto (standard and advanced), leave Static tRead Value as it is for now. If you are not stable try 8 then 9.
    Set MCH Core to 1.15-1.2v, all other voltages on auto.
    Lets see if you can get stable then work on the timings.
    Please post MemSet main window (no need for SPD) again after applying these changes, press Alt+PrintScreen when the window is active to capture only the window.
