    Yes, 4.0. I don't recall the wall time but it had 10 passes with no errors so I'd say at least a couple of hours, maybe a bit more.
    Yah, well, I'm 53. I COULD use a bit more voltage on some things.
    But what?

    Well with 10 passes it's hard to say, may not be fully memory at all, could be NB or CPU issues.

    How does Prime95 do on blend, small FFT and large FFT? Run each one for a few hours and see, if one fails let us know which method failed.

    You could also run Memtest and run only test 5 or 7 or 8 and see if it fails quickly or not, these are the stressful tests.

    C, then 1, then 3, then test number, then 0 to start again, is how you change test number used in Memtest

    OK, thanks. Probably be tomorrow before I can do all that. I'll let my wife have at it today. She has shown a genuine talent for generating BSOD's. She plays games and surf's shoe sites. The games are simple, computer wise, puzzles and "find the object" stuff. No high stress graphics or fast action stuff.

    Did a couple of passes for all three Memtest tests - 5, 7 and 8 - no errors. Discovered that USB keyboard support was disabled in the BIOS which may be why Memtest appeared to be frozen before.

    Ran Prime95 blend for 2-1/2 hours with no errors and small FFT for 3-1/4 hours with no errors.

    That's it for the moment.

    And Large FFT for 2-1/2 hours with no errors.

    I guess at this point, I'm going to leave it all where it is. Maybe I'll run Memtest again tonight for a long run and see if the keyboard not being enabled just fooled me into thinking it had frozen.

    On auto it does indeed raise the voltages unless one selects manual and then normal voltages.

    Now that's funny!

    Auto shouldn't set anything other than 1.8, unless the BIOS is off a bit, or you have turbo or extreme performance enhance chosen. Some BIOSes may not be spot on though at various settings, so auto could indeed be off a bit but I don't think that much unless you were using turbo/extreme.

    I don't think USB support matters on this, you may or may not have been able to change settings without it, but it would not make it freeze after 10 passes.

    Not from what I have seen around so far, 1.9v would be set if XMP is not in effect, if XMP is in effect the voltage from EPP/XMP will be used.
    Just to make sure, I have thried with Performance Enhance standdard and XMP disabled:
    BIOS: auto, PC Health: 1.92v
    BIOS: normal, PC Health: 1.808v
    BIOS: 1.8v, PC Health: 1.808v
    BIOS: 1.9v, PC Health: 1.92v

    So basically auto sets 1.9v on my board, and every other P/G4x board I have seen so far, not so sure about P35/X38/X48 boards.

    On my GA-EP45-UD3 & Q9550 auto Dram voltage setting does this (Performance Enhance set to Standard):
    Using D strap, any FSB, Dram voltage is set to 2.0 V
    Using B strap, memory speed under 840 MHz, voltage is set to 1.9 V
    Using B strap, memory speed => 840 MHz, voltage is set to 2.0 V

    My memory is Transcend JM4GDDR2-8K, a cheap 2*2 Gb kit of PC2-6400 so no EPP/XMP profiles.

    Hmm, Gigabyte must have changed something in the BIOS then since I last used P45
