    Motherboard : gigabyte GA-EP45T-UD3LR
    Ram : kingston 12gb (3x 4gb) 1333mhz ddr3
    GPU: zotac 960amp Edition 2gb ddr5

    Is CPU recognized properly by the BIOS?
    All settings from optimized defaults, and is it tested to be stable (Memtest86/Memtest86+/OCCT/Prime95/Other)?
    Did you need to make any changes in BIOS for 3x4GB memory?
    All memory sticks are identical?
    Please post screen captures of CPU-Z CPU, Motherboard, Memory and SPD tabs.
    You can run multiple instances of CPU-Z and capture them all at once.

    Thanks for Reply,

    Yes all settings are optimized defaults, Intel Microcode added to bios for lga 771 to lga 775..
    i haven't made any changes for ram and all rams are identical 3x4gb ddr3 1333mhz kingston.
    and sorry i don't know anything about (Memtest86/Memtest86+/OCCT/Prime95)
    but my system is working very much fine .. like to oc my xeon5460 for gaming.

    attached are the screen cpuz.

    OK lets jump to troubled water right away
    Do the following changes in M.I.T
    Code:
    MB Intelligent Tweaker(M.I.T.)
    CPU Clock Ratio ---------------- : [8]
    Fine CPU Clock Ratio ----------- : [0.0] 
    
    CPU Host Frequency (Mhz) ------- : [400]
    
    
    DRAM Performance Control
    Performance Enhance ------------ : [Standard] 
    Extreme Memory Profile - (XMP) - : [Disabled] (ignore if not esists)
    System Memory Multiplier ------- : [3.33D]
    
    Advanced Clock Control ------- [Press Enter]
    Channel A&B Timing Settings -- {Press Enter to change settings}
    Static tRead Value ------------- : [9 or 10] (will lower later)
    
    Motherboard Voltage Control
    CPU
    Voltage Types--------- Normal ----- Current -----
    Load-Line Calibration ---------- : [Enabled]
    CPU Vcore ----------- 1.????? -- : [1.265] 
    CPU Termination ----- 1.200V* -- : [1.2] 
    CPU PLL ------------- 1.500V* -- : [1.5] (may need to be 1 tick higher for higher OC)	
    
    MCH/ICH
    MCH Core ------------- 1.100V -- : [1.16] (increase up to 1.24 if needed)
    Try with Fine CPU Clock Ratio 0.5 if it boots ok, this should get it to 3.4GHz.
    If you encounter boot loop you may need to clear CMOS.

    OCCT is not a must but it won't be a bad idea to run it at least for an hour, with medium data set.
    It is a stress test that may help find instabilities that otherwise will take longer to find.
    Of course watch core temps and stop the test is the exceed 70c

    Please post also screen caprure of MemSet main window.

    My Dear

    Very Thanks for Suggestions

    I tried your settings more than 40 times going and coming out of bios ... but nu success..

    things change but in CPUz bus speed always remain same 333
    clock speed , voltages and other things change... but not bus speed

    attaching CPUz screens

    Yeah not many DDR3 boards at that time, most used DDR2
    The timings are more interesting and looks ok.

    I think the +/- keys on numpad or you can simply type the number (num lock on)

    No No its not like that it can be changed in motherboard easily with +/- keys or with numeric keys also ... but after rebooting when i check it with CPUz it remain same 333mhz...
    in CPUz its not changing ....


    core speed , bus speed , and rated FSB in CPUz never changes after changing it in bios of motherboard....

    Thanks

    Do you mean you change it to 400 in BIOS but it don't change?
    And in IOS it is still 400?
