    Well S3 sleeps is very dependent on all settings used (System must be 100% stable or close) and of course the BIOS Version matters as well.

    And yes, certain very high FSB may never resume, as that is a power saving feature. Something 500+ FSB is not

    Huh? But I gathered it was a bug in the bios...

    Hi all. This post caught my eye since it mentions the RAM i'm trying to install/OC directly.
    Intel C2D E6550 (355x7)
    Gigabyte EP43-DS3 (BIOS=F7)
    4x1Gb Crucial Ballistix 1066 5-5-5-15 2.0v
    XP Pro x64 SP2

    I currently have only two sticks of the RAM installed with but want to move away from Auto settings and add the other two sticks. The reviews are based on P35 and P45 boards and I wondered if anyone could help a novice get started on some adjustments.
    I realise all hardware is unique and could well be above or below average - I appear to have found the limit of my CPU albeit very low compared to some other installations.
    Any help would be very welcome.

    Hey, you updated an old thread lol!

    Have you taken a look at the user review LSDMeasap has made for your ram? It givies you example timings to work on using the P45 chispet.

    Things may not act the same for you however as you are using the P43 chipset. :)

    Yep. I had read that post - not in its entirety but everything relevant to my situation. I was hoping to find something specific to my chip but its looking doubtful. Which setup would be best to assume as a starter? P35 or P45?
    Thanks for your reply

    P45 settings would be the same for you on P43, the P43 chipset is just a crippled P45 so you would be fine working with the P45 settings I provided.

    If you need further help please feel free to ask

    I have used the Crucial Ballistix 800MHz DDR2 RAM for a good 3 years.. Have found it the easiest to get on with - stable, reliable and for the 4-4-4-12 timings, quite cheap.

    Its the only RAM I've had that actually works straight out the pack without having to set up the voltages etc myself.

    Thanks for all your efforts!

    Unfortunately it is all to no avail for me. I've got a GA-P35-DS3R with 2x2 GB Ballistix PC-6400 and no matter how loose I set the timings I can't get a stable baseline. I think I've tried everything under the sun at this point and have just given up. Really would have liked to have conquered this and made these work but I can see its just not going to happen.

    I actually started out with PC-8500's and after 2 RMA's on those Crucial let me try the 6400's. All for not though. If anyone has a compatible board and wants to buy or trade them I'm entertaining offers!

    What a shame, I feel for you.

    I've just re-built my Striker II Formula gaming PC, with a "replacement" board to find its yet another blooming faulty board which is stuck on CPU init, so I feel your grief!
