    Didn't mean to hijack this thread with my problems. Just thought I'd post here as I was having some interesting problems with various straps. I'll post my full settings over in the thread I started http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/g-sk...45-ud3p-31889/

    I must say I can't get my PC to boot properly no matter what at FSB above 485 with D strap. B worked like a charm with 500 on first try. Just my two cents :)

    Yes, it all depends on the ram being used and your voltages/timings, ect which would be best for your setup

    Glad you found this helpful!

    I posted this as a simple comparison, so that users who thought using a strap less than that of the FSB speed was best. It used to be, but with P45 this is not the case anymore and it seems that sometimes it can even hinder performance

    well yea, i was thinking the same tbh as tighter strap=better performance or so i thought too but the ammount is neglegable to say the least.

    like i said i honestly thought i had an issue with my ram (again) but after a search i found you found the same, as did a few others, and just thought i would post a ty and bring it up the boards for anybody who aint seen it.

    shame there is no rep system on here as this thread deserves it m8 :)

    Well in the older boards a lower strap was actually better, but not anymore. Higher strap is looser timings on the NB so not as fast in older boards that is why everyone used to use a strap lower than FSB.

    Thanks, Glad you found this useful and thanks for bumping for others.

    A double or even triple boot is normal after saving many various changes in the BIOS. Some settings do not require this, others do every time.

    And yes, double boot on P45 anytime is normal as well at certain overclocks.

    Hi octopuss, if ur setting ram at FSB 500 doesnt work well while testing in memtest try to add MCH reference 1 step up at VTT def 1.2v then increase VTT to ur desire and so MCH reference will automatically increase too adjusting with VTT ... in myrig i cant passed memtest at FSB 500 no matter strapping or multi or vdimm i use unless i added MCH reference 1 step up then it works :)
