    The setting '7' lets me start Windows alright, but when starting Windows again, it shows me the grey screen where I choose Windows 7, safe mode or a memory check....

    What MCH and DRAM voltages?
    Not that important though, 8 will be good too.

    I agree, but I wasn't sure that his Q9550S and P43 motherboard would work with tighter tRD settings. I should have said that tRD = 8 or 9 would provide decent memory performance, rather than optimal performance.

    FWIW, this is a screen-shot of my fully stable, Q9550/EP45-UD3P system using tRD (aka Performance Level) = 6 at 1066MHz with no overclock:

    RIP EP43-UD3L, not stable I'm sure
    tRD 6 was on the EP45-UD3L and both were stable at 400 x 2.66 with tRD 7 IIRC.

    What voltage steps you have for the MCH Core above 1.2?

    MCH Core can go up to 1.3 and 1.4
    Please bear in mind that I don't have active northbridge cooling nor heatpipe cooling....

    I know how high it can go, I asked in what steps.
    Yes I know about the temps, had one of those and used to get burning hot, unlike the P45 cool.
    Side fan may help

    So the steps are 0.1, probably not as small as they should be...?
    I do have a 120 mm Scythe pulling side fan and another one pushing at the front.

    Anyway, I guess I'd better open a new thread for ideal bios settings with standard cpu clock and moderate overclocking because the delete button problem seems to have disappeared for good.
    Unfortunately I still don't know for sure what actually solved this problem.

    Fir this board I guess, some boards have 0.02v steps.
