    Thanks for the response. I copied the BIOS stuff for submitting my settings. Looks like it will be tomorrow before I have a large enough block of time to tinker (too many "honey do's") today.

    Anytime is fine with us.

    If you are not having any problems then you don't need to give us your settings now, unless you want to

    Thanks for the response. I spent a good bit of the day with no starts, BSOD's, etc... Finally got it running and it appears to be "stable" for the moment. I tried so many different settings, I have no idea what I've got in there that finally worked. I believe it is somewhere around 3.9GHz and my temps are good after 30 minutes of prime95. I'm off tomorrow and will get it posted for your inspection and suggestions. My eyes are crossing right now!

    Iím sure that what I have running can be improved. I couldnít get anything to run yesterday using a 20x or 21x multiplier. . I believe some of the other settings might have worked if the RAM timings where right. I ended up with 7-8-7-20 (as listed on the stick), but X.M.P. has it as 8-8-8-20, 2T. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
    3.8-4GHz is plenty for me, but I want to make sure I have the optimum settings and donít stress something more than I should. Also, I was wondering about the CPU EIST, c1E, & C3/C6/C7 settings and how all of this works with Windows 7 64-bit power settings. Should I disable all of this and use balanced power settings in Windows, or use high performance settings in windows and enable these settings in the BIOS?<o:p></o:p>
    Thanks for any suggestions!<o:p></o:p>

    Looks good man, nice tweaking!

    Sorry I tried to reply to your post before I headed to work, but the forum went down right when I was replying.

    Do you want/need power saving options? It will make it much harder to get your overclock stable. If you must have it, I'd try EIST Enabled in the BIOS and then use balanced in windows, then go into advanced plan settings and set the Min/Max CPU states you want to use.

    Thanks! So you think those settings are good enough, or maybe some adjustments that I can make for more stability or less strain?<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
    I fooled around with the power stuff and ended up with all of it disabled in BIOS and using balanced in Windows with processor power set at default minimum and maximum values. I initially set the processor min/max to 100% and when I rebooted there was only 4GB of RAM showing. Resource manager said that 2GB was reserved for hardware, so I changed it back to default and Windows returned my RAM. Still scratching my head on that one.<o:p></o:p>
    One other thing, I initially went with RAID 0 using the Marvell controller and the SATA 3 ports. Is there a way for me to switch to the Intel SATA 2 controller w/o trashing everything?<o:p></o:p>

    Those settings are good, but I would find and set your own Vcore voltage, you may not need anywhere near 1.37 that Auto is giving it (Sorry I overlooked that previously)

    That memory issue you mention is due to incorrect QPI/Vtt, try a few higher or lower values and it should be ok to set what you did. I use C1E and EIST disabled, and 100 Min/Max and always see all my memory, but if I set incorrect QPI/Vtt or uncore then I can loose channels of memory.

    Just something you have to tinker with until you find the sweet spot. You may also need to set ram voltage to 1.66, 1.64 is often 1.63 or less, so that could add to the problem

    Not sure about your Marvell/Intel concerns, I will be testing all of this myself shortly as I have 2 C300 SSD's on the way. Backup your array and try moving the disks, if it fails move back and if it wont start anymore restore back to the array.

    Keep the hard drives always connected to the same ports, IE port one in port one when moving, ect.

    I'd plug them in, then go right into the Intel RAID ROM after you enable RAID on it and see if the array shows up or not, if it does not then it likely will not work.

    Thanks! I played around with the Vcore, QPI, and RAM voltages. Now running @ 4GHz w/o any problems, with temps ranging from 43c idle to 77c prime95.
    I think I'll wait until you do some testing before I fool with my RAID. It's not like what I have is super slow-just that it's not doing anywhere near what it was advertised to do. Do you think there might be a firmware upgrade for Marvell?

    Nice to see your overclock is running smoothly now!

    Are you using the latest Marvell drivers? Yes, there is new firmware in each BIOS. Have you ever updated the Marvell firmware with the latest BIOS for your board?

    The option is in Integrated Peripherals (I think). The choices are onchip or Auto, you want to change it to Auto and then save/apply/reboot and then on the DMI pool page you will see it update the Marvell chip.

    What speeds are you getting?
