    Default BIOS tweaking or best BIOS settings GA-P43-ES3G (rev. 1.1)

    Thanks to profJim's karma I finally managed to get my BIOS to respond to the DELETE key again.
    Now I think it is a good idea to tweak it a little bit and then save it with F11.
    First of all I would like the BIOS settings to fit standard cpu clock. (Maybe some moderate overclocking later).
    ProfJim already helped me to get the RAM stable on 1066 Mhz @5-5-5-15

    This is what I have sofar but I'm sure there is some room for improvement:

    Try to set Performance Enhance to standard and see if you cacan lower tRD
    Also try with Channel A/B Driving Settings -< Driving Strength Profiles 1066/800
    RAM don't have XMP profile?
    Personally I've never disabled neither EIST nor C1E/C2/C2E

    @Bobolink1970,
    Keep in mind that I'm using a Q9550/EP45-UD3P setup with 4 x 2GB of HyperX T1 PC2-8500 memory and that what works for me might not work for you.

    Setting Performance Enhance = Standard will provide somewhat looser secondary memory timings and if Chike's suggestion to use the Normal option instead of the Turbo option lets you lower tRD to 7 or 6, you're overall memory performance will be better. In my EP45-UD3P system I was able to use Performance Enhance = Turbo with tRD = 6 and memory speed = 1066MHz. I was able to use the Turbo option up to 3.50GHz and had to change it to the Standard option with higher overclocks. YMMV.

    I did my overclocking with EIST, C1E, C2/C2E and C4/C4E enabled and had no problems.

    I've never found an XMP profile in any HyperX PC2-8500 SPD screen-shots.

    This is the Memset SPD for my HyperX T1 memory when I was running 8GB in my P35-DS4 system:

    The next image shows the different secondary memory timings that the EP45-UD3P bios sets with Luke's system and my system.





    This is the screen-shot of my system with no overclock and Performance Enhance = Turbo that I posted in your first thread:

    @Chike
    @profJim,
    Thanks a lot guys!
    Changed Performance Enhance to Standard and tRD (performance level) on 6 doesn't seem to be a problem.
    At least 3hours and 15 minutes of Prime95 (blend) didn't give me any errors.
    I'm not sure about the driving strength profiles and left them on auto for now.
    What good will they do? Should I put them on 1066 since that's my RAM speed or should I try both 800 and 1066?

    All MaxxMEM2 With tRD 6?
    Stick with what is best anyway.

    @ Chike,
    Yep, they are all with tRD 6.
    I am sorting out the stability of Performance Enhance = Extreme as we speak.
    Only noticed that according to Maxxmem I have a slightly lower cpu speed and RAM speed compared to profJim.
    Is that something to worry about?
    And what about the differences in temperature between the 4 cores, 3 cores have simular temps, 1 core is totally off? I could never figure that one out...

    Nothing to worry about the speeds, it's just minor difference in FSB clock e.g 333 vs 333.33
    BTW with your cooler it would be a shame not to take the CPU to at least 8.5 x 400MHz FSB which the chipset is capable of, not much higher though.
    Unless you have not applied thermal paste properly or the cooler is somehow not mounted correctly it could be just the temp sensor, still temps are well within reason range (<75c).
