    Do you still need suggestions for post #18, or are you going to stick with your configuration in post #20?

    Either way you need to set DDR2 voltage manually to1.8-1.85 (Maybe use 1.85-1.9 since you have 6GB), and MCH may be ok at +0.2, but you might need =0.25-0.3

    As for your CPU Speeds, you need to disable C1E and EIST in the BIOS, then if you are using Vista or Windows 7 go into control panel, power options, advanced power options for the plan you are using and set Min/max CPU to 100%

    Hello everyone. First of all I apologize for the errors made when writing in English because my English is not good, sorry.
    With permission from AbuAli1981, write this post not to open another with the same problem since I have the same motherboard and processor. I apologize if this is not right, open up another post with my problem if necessary.
    My intention is to reach 4GHz, the cooler I have is a noctua NH-D14
    Here is my current bios settings and the characteristics of my memories obtained with everest.
    In advance, thank you very much for the help.

    Thanks for all your info and settings!

    You are fine to post here, no problem! I'll see if I can help you get 4Ghz

    What CPU do you have though?

    For my reference later
    996599 - 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 PC2-8500 5-5-5-15 Blackline (Dual Kit)

    Let me know what CPU you have then I will give you some settings to try

    Lsdmeasap Hello, thank you very much for your prompt response.

    I have an Intel Quad 9550 E0, here are data obtained with the CPU-Z.

    Information Processors
    -------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------

    Processor 1 (ID = 0)
    Number of cores 4 (max 4)
    Number of threads 4 (max 4)
    Name Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550
    Codename Yorkfield
    Specification Intel (R) Core (TM) 2 Quad CPU Q9550@2.83GHz
    Package Socket 775 LGA (platform ID = 4h)
    6.7.A CPUID
    Extended CPUID 6.17
    Core Stepping E0
    45nm Technology
    Core Speed 2002.1 MHz (6.0 x 333.7 MHz)

    L1 Data cache 4 x 32 KBytes, 8-way Associative September, 64-byte line size
    L1 Instruction cache 4 x 32 KBytes, 8-way Associative September, 64-byte line size
    L2 cache 2 x 6144 KBytes, 24-way Associative September, 64-byte line size
    FID / VID Control yes
    FID range 6.0x - 8.5x
    V max VID 1250
    Features XD, VT

    As for RAM, never found the exact model I have in the official website of Mushkin, I suppose that are those you put in the link because technically they are identical, only the aesthetic change. Here you can see exactly how are those I have http://www.pccomponentes.com/fotos/m..._4gb_2x2gb.jpg

    Once again, thanks for your attention.
    The best thing for you, greetings.

    Thanks!

    The reason your kit looks different is because the US and overseas use different heatsinks for different modules. Those heatsinks you showed a image of are only used on the lesser or budget models here in the US, and not used on 1066Mhz kits or one with better timings.

    It's just different depending on where you buy them is all, the kit I linked above is the same as yours just with different heatsink is all.

    Try these settings

    Limit CPUID Max. to 3______________ [Disabled]
    No-Execute Memory Protect__________ [Enabled]
    CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E)____________ [Enabled] << Disable
    CPU Thermal Monitor 2(TM2)_________ [Enabled]
    CPU EIST Function__________________ [Enabled] << Disable
    Virtualization Technology__________ [Enabled] << Disable if you do not use Vmware or Virtual Machines

    C2/C2E State Support_______________ [Don't See This Option]
    x C4/C4E State Support_____________ [Don't See This Option] << Did you load optimized defaults since you have installed this CPU? If not please do now, then reboot right back to the BIOS and set your SATA/Disk settings again and then you should find this, if not maybe your CPU does not support it or the board?

    Lsdmeasap Hello again, I have bad news.
    My monitor broke down and now I'm writing from my brother's computer.
    I hope to solve the problem this week or next.
    Thanks for the BIOS setup.
    Greetings.

    Monitor broke? Are you sure, did you test the monitor on another PC?

    What happened do you know?

    Lsdmeasap Hello once again.
    Not really damaged. Last week, buy a new one because I had I gave to my brother. The new is not going well in games (ghosting) so as to return to the store where purchased (buy online). It is for this reason why I can not use my computer. I guess this problem is solved next week.
    Thanks for asking, will keep you informed.

    Greetings
