Probably ran through Windows Performance Assessement about 10 times at 435FSB x9 and 1.32v@NB. Then I got a spontaneous reboot. So upped NB to 1.36 volts. No doubt it needs alot of volts when using 8GB in all slots. Here

EDIT: BTW anyone trying for 500+ FSB, NB volts are quite important for stability wink.gif
was pushing 1.6v for 625FSB but 1.45v should be good for air

I have pushed 1.60V NB for 525MHz FSB on my Q9550..

That was max FSB that I could've hit on this combo as further vNB was not giving any more MHz..

CHEERS..

NB is up to 1.4v now. I think this could be the big culprit for 8GB RAM. Have been searching on google. Many people needs even more than this to be stable with 8GB RAM on P45 mobos... I'm willing to go all the way up to 1.5 volts for testing purposes..

If I can not stabilize my 8GB Geil Black Dragon at 9x 435FSB with 1.4v NB or a little more, I will revert back to using 4GB.

This explains all the strange symptoms I've been having when using 8GB with both my mem kits. Only they gave different symptoms. I have never really been focusing on much past 1.3 volts to NB.

Trying Prime95 Large FFTs overnight.

YOU ONLY NEED TWO TOOLS IN LIFE - WD-40 AND DUCT TAPE. IF IT DOESN'T MOVE AND SHOULD, USE THE WD-40. IF IT SHOULDN'T MOVE AND DOES, USE THE DUCT TAPE.

Liking? biggrin.gif There was life in the past, using harddrives, and there was life after, using SSD's. Life before and life after. I love them wubsmiley.gif:wubsmiley

My God... 1.4v NB seems to have actually done the trick.. Can't belive I have not tried this before when using 8GB RAM. As I've said, I searched google, and this seems perfectly normal for P45 when using 8GB RAM.

When running Prime95 Large FFT's the highest I have seen on the NB is 51C. This is not bad..

The funny thing is also that all my previous writing in this thread, all that testing, all those hours and days spent, all those erratic symptoms when overclocking with 8GB RAM meant nothing! LOL! biggrin.gif

All this, simply because NB needed more Volts! OMG! biggrin.gif
