    Then your settings must be incorrect, and since you say all Auto that likely could be the cause. And 1.34 is to much MCH for 4GB, maybe even too much for 8GB

    Please post for me your 4GB test settings in full and I will advise back, for now put MCH Ref at default/auto for 4GB test on S3, and then a second one with MCH Ref at .70 then put Vtt back to what you normally use.

    MCH Dram Ref should not need to be changed, although it may help at 8GB but for 4GB Auto should be just fine

    Ok.
    So below is a screen shot of my cpu and ram settings at 4ghz with 4gb (it says 8gb, but I just put my sticks back in and the memset values didn't change between what they were at 8gb vs 4gb. I did however do all my testing with just 4gb installed)



    BTW, the ram settings at stock settings (as listed in the order of that memset screen shot) are: 6,44,11,13,11,3,8,5,6,2597, 2T. The timings are the same.

    I found that if I go into easytune and drop the FSB, the ram settings remain unchanged across the board. For example, if I load windows with my 4ghz oced settings and use easy tune to drop down to a 371mhz FSB, none of the numbers memset shows change outside of the frequency.

    I found that s3 sleep works up to 438 FSB with those settings. Above 438, it stops working. Again, none of the ram settings change as I'm increasing fsb frequency.

    I then tested single variables across the RAM, ich, and mch settings to see if I could get 440mhz to s3 sleep. Since its only a minor gain of 2mhz, the necessary voltage increase or decrease shouldn't be very much to the lacking voltage settings. However, no single variable increase to any ram, ich, or mch settings let me get 440mhz s3 sleepable.

    Please fill out a template, this makes it much easier on myself and others who may try to help as many settings we need to see are just not shown in programs.

    I can say though, that is a lot of MCH Core even if/when using 8GB. So surely do not use that for 4GB, try 1.20-1.24. tRD must be set as well, you are using Auto now looks like.

    I need to see all settings though, so please do fill out a template

    You should be setting your own tRD and Driving Strengths, is there a reason you don't? Just wondering. I see tRD of 10 is used, this is very poor for performance, but should not give you issues with this though

    CPU termination is pretty high, normally that much about Vcore is dangerous. So I would suggest you try less, with more Vcore if needed to compensate

    Again MCH Core is very high, do you have a fan on it? 1.26-1.3 should be plenty for 8GB

    You may also need to use 555-18, the ram spec of 555-12 is per single kits. Just to see if this is the problem, try 666-18 for a quick test, then you will know if ram timings have anything to do with it or not. If that does not help then you need to look at my other suggestions.

    All "Ref" Voltages should be in auto for now, unless you specifically and properly set them. Either way i would really suggest for S3 testing that you leave them all in Auto, except maybe MCH Ref

    Don't really know how or what values are appropriate.

    6-6-6-18 didn't help.

    I don't think cpu vtt makes a difference though I will try and see. I'll also work on the mch vcore as well. You should note that the s3 issue persists even if I drop the multipler down to 6x. 6x 471 yields 2.83ghz yet s3 sleep doesn't work there either.

    Could you be alittle clearer though on what you want me to test

    Ahh, ok, sorry about that.

    For Driving Strength often 1066 is best for 800Mhz, so I think 1066 would be fine for your setup as well.

    tRD depends on a few things, for now though I would suggest you set this to 9. I can help you try to set it lower later for better performance, but 9 should be good for our testing now

    Thanks for testing 666-18, now we know ram settings mainly are not to blame.

    It is the High FSB that causes the issue mainly, not overall speeds.

    I'd like you to try to see if you can lower Vtt, maybe to 1.3-1.34 at least. Are you sure more vcore also does not help, just ask because that sounds a little low what you are using.

    So did you test a few different MCH Ref amounts like I suggested above yet, with less Vtt?

    I see... ok it may be a few hours before I can get back to you. I'll do as you say. Thanks for the info.

    Good luck in testing things, no rush as I will be leaving shortly anyway.
