    Default Re: Raid 1 after OS is installed?

    Hi guys, here is an update.
    I made the below changes and the PC improved a great deal.
    However it still crashes, but now only every 5-7 days.

    - Changed PCI Express Frequency to 100,
    - Changed System Memory Multiplier to 4.0B,
    - Changed MCH Core to 1.20v.

    Now I will try setting 'Performance' to 'Standard',
    and if it still keeps crashing I will increase the MCH Core to 1.24v.

    Thanks for all the help, Lsdmeasap and bluestang.
    It really is appreciated. :)

    Sounds good, nice to hear you are making some progress.

    If you still have issues post us your new current full settings that are partially working for you and we'll advise back.

    Default Re: Raid 1 after OS is installed?

    I'd make the following changes before trying more MCH voltage

    Extreme Memory Profile (X.M.P.).....: Auto << Disabled
    (G)MCH Frequency Latch...............: Auto
    System Memory Multiplier ..............: 4.0B
    Memory Frequency (Mhz) ..............: 1,333
    DRAM Timing Selectable ................: Auto << manual


    Channel A
    Static tRead Value.........................:7 Auto << Set to 8 for now

    Channel B
    Static tRead Value.........................: 7 Auto << Set to 8 for now


    CPU Termination….....: 1.200V Auto << Try setting 1.225-1.25



    CPU Reference2………,: Not Present.

    MCH/ICH
    MCH Core…………….....1.24V (1.2-1.28 later)

    Did you try more MCH Core than listed in the above settings? If so, test less than stock next, like 1.0-1.1 MCH Core

    Hi,
    No i didnt sorry, i will try that next.
    I am losing track on my own thread due to the length of time the tests are taking lol...

    I have changed to 1.22V again, and will document crash results for it, then will also try 1.22V-1.28V.
    Following this I will then try 1.0V-1.1V.

    Thanks for the help.
    It really is appreciated :)
