    It's a template you need to fill manually. The link is at Lsdmeasap signature "BIOS Templates".

    *sigh* Well it's good to see that my computer works and hasn't gotten tired of making me frustrated :)

    I tried some of the settings recommended here:
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/help...tml#post351905

    Changing the MCH Clock Skew made no difference, loaded Windows fine but froze after a minute of Linpack.
    I can't use 2.00D for some reason, computer does the 30-beep thing and restarts a few times (I'm not liking all these power cycles on my hard drives). 2.00B seems to work on 460MHz FSB though.
    I shouldn't have to run my RAM at 6-5-5-18 1000MHz when I ran it fine at 5-5-5-12 1080MHz on 2.06v.
    So that leaves the voltages, I lowered and it really made no difference, raised the PLL to the next notch (1.57v) and again no difference.

    I'm totally lost now.

    Well, with 3 and a half hours over IM and remote control from freakb18c1, he got it to POST and boot with 2.00D at 500MHz FSB, something I couldn't accomplish. However it's not stable. Prime95 works for a little bit but either errors out or the program stops responding. I'm hoping it's not a hardware issue. I ran 8 hours of Prime95 blend and 1 hour of OCCT Linpack on this so I don't think it is.

    BTW, I'm not trying to undermine freakb18c1, just trying to get more minds in the loop :)

    Do you want to run 500 FSB, that is fairly high and may take some hot voltages to get stable? If so I will advise on those settings, if not let me know what FSB you want to run

    Yea, I would like 500MHz FSB, it gets my RAM closer to stock settings. I'm not super hot on 4.25GHz but I'm sure down the road it would be nice to have. I have a couple of things in mind that I'm going to try but you know more than me so anything you could advise would be appreciated :)

    :D I've gotten a stable 500Mhz FSB setup. I'm still tweaking but I think the hard part is over. I'm not going to post the template just yet, the voltages are still too high IMO :)

    Nice to hear you got it going, keep us posted on your tweaking progress!

    Good luck on lower the voltages!
