    Latest CPU-z is here >>
    CPUID

    And I do suggest you use the latest BIOS >>

    Here is a guide on how to use Qflash, this or DOS is suggested to update your BIOS. Please DO NOT use @BIOS >>

    I Do suggest for now, you set a couple of your voltages to Auto. I don't like this myself either, but a few will cause you issues until you know how to properly set them, and some may be fine in auto.

    For now, these I advise be left in auto. MCH Ref can be adjusted later for stability, and likely is the only one you really should have to adjust in the end. See the link in my signature for how to adjust this properly

    CPU Referen.…………....0.755V*.......: Auto
    CPU Reference2………,,0.800V*.......:<<< Auto

    MCH/ICH

    MCH Reference….…….0.800V...........; <<< Auto
    MCH/DRAM Ref.…......0.900V...........: <<< Auto

    DRAM

    DRAM Termination .…0.900V............: <<< Auto
    Channel A Reference 0.900V............: <<< Auto
    Channel B Reference 0.900V............: <<< Auto

    Once you get going, please post your overclock settings that fail and we can advise. Since you are overclocking, I wont waste our time in suggestions for stock for you as of now, unless you want that?

    Hi everydoby,

    I just get my EP45 Extreme replaced by an ASUS PQ5 Deluxe. Resealler did'nt try the card.

    It definitly had a problem, with CPUZ, I had a memory detection of 3Go, I thought it was because of available memory for windows. In fact, it now detect my 4Go well. So I'm sure the card was deficient.

    I just ran a stability test at 450x6 and it works fine ! Now going through 500.

    Thanks everyone for the time you spent here.
