P5W DH Deluxe question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
This may have been asked before, but I cannot find it. With the E6400, CM2X512A-6400 memory & latest BIOS, as the FSB is raised, POST gets slower until it freezes at 350. Has anyone else seen this?

Increase your vMCH to its max of 1.65
I have two of those boards (one in action) and when I ran my e6400 on that board I ran it at 400x8 without a glitch ...
of course my voltage for my MCH was raised to 1.65

Well sdumper, your suggestion appears to solve the issue. This board is odd. when I applied the BIOS adj., it still sat on POST for 3 minutes before starting the OS. Seems ok now at 375 FSB. May be related to the Ezbackup RAID 0 I am using. I can see the hard drive start, then quit for awhile before startup. Sometimes there is a long delay before the BIOS will show.
