Any other BIOS settings I should know about?

Should I run the ram at 1T or 2T?

Personally I feel like I'm getting the best performance out of my ram at higher speeds vs. tight timings. I run my ram at 2t but pushed my mem bus as far as I could and it seemed with each little increment that it loaded faster. As for the SLI capability on my ram, useless. Seemed like a good idea, I enabled it and if I remember correctly got instability issues with my overclock. Stick with the Geil I heard it rocks.

SLI memory is a poorly-functioning gimmick that is supposed to automatically set your RAM timings. If you set them yourself (the recommended method), you leave SLI MEMORY DISABLED. It has nothing to do with your video cards; it is purely related to system memory, not video memory. 1T is much faster than 2T, but it generally requires significantly lower speeds. Most people don't even bother benchmarking at 1T. I highly recommend it (benching), but you are likely to find that you'll be better off at higher speeds. Especially with your setup, you're going to find much better performance at high speed with loose timings.

The issue with Vista x64 and more than 3GB of RAM is the inability to even install the OS (BSOD or install stops responding). This doesn't happen every time (oddly, I had the problem during my very first x64 install, but not on any of the subsequent reinstalls). The solution is to pull a stick (or two so you're still dual-channel), install the OS, then install the hotfix. Then, you can re-insert the two extra sticks. I am unclear what you mean about not being able to install an x64 hotfix on a 32-bit OS. Vista x64 is 64 bit. The hotfix is only for x64. x86 doesn't need the hotfix.

BIOS settings from page 1. Run tight timings at 1t if your ram is capable.

Now according to some there are some issues with vista installs and 4 gig ram with nforce chipsets. What I would like to know is this an issue with this board or not?

I know there's hotfix which fixes all these problems but unfortunately vlite doesn't allow integration of 64bit hotfixes from within a 32 bit os so I have to actually have vista 64 bit installed before creating a slipstreamed os.
I never required a hotfix with this board and 4Gb with Vista64. If you have issues, I would think you would install with 2 and add the other 2 later.

What I mean is with creating a slipstreamed installation of vista 64 using vlite. For some reason can't integrate x64bit hotfixes into the slipstreamed installation from within vista 32 bit. I was planning on just adding the needed hotfix to a vista installation and seeing if by doing that it would install without needing to remove some ram.

But I get this message when trying to integrate hotfixes:64 bit hotfix and language integration can only be done in the 64bit host.

So it seems I will either get lucky or have to remove some ram to install vista 64 bit.

I understand now. Because my problem occurred in the very first stages of install, I think an install disc with the hotfix wouldn't work even if you succeeded in getting it on there to begin with. It's a good idea, though...

Ok maybe you guys gone be able to help me.
After loots of thinking I got new ram (see my sig) after changing as per guide in page 1

Quote:
SLI Ready Memory (also known as Enhanced Performance Profiles or EPP). This is a tool all the 680i boards share. In a nutshell, certain sets of ram have an extra chip that contains overclocking profiles based on factory testing of RAM with these boards. What this will allow you to do, is to auto overclock your ram without manually changing settings up to a factory recommended standard. You can squeeze more performance out of the ram by doing the settings manually but for first timers, its a handy tool.
Corsair and OCZ both have a number of kits that are designated SLI Ready or EPP ready. In the bios on the Extreme Tweaker screen, there is a setting for SLI Ready Memory. Simply go to it, select, 0% Overclock, save reboot and you will see the ram overclocked.
I'm getting BSOD in Vista 32 when I bump my ram V to 2.1v as per...

Quote:
Important!: Always set ram voltage manually upon first boot. This board undervolts memory from factory settings when left to auto. For example, my ram is rated stock at 2.1 Volts. The auto setting had it running at 1.89. Even though my system ran fine, I had occasional crashes until I changed the volts to 2.1 manually.
My rig just reboot before going to widows.
Any idea is my ram dogy? or is the motherboard or I'm doig somthing wrong?

PS.
On same make ram but 800Mhz I could overclock very well is my board dont like 1066mhz?

Thanx

I have use all your setting, but after saving the setting and reboot, my system freezes at republic of gamer logo. I'm using 1305 BIOS revision and I don't change the memory clock, timing and voltage settings.

Hi everyone. I wanted to first say thanks to Robilar and others for starting and keeping this thread going. I love this motherboard and the overclocking has been super easy with all of the instruction here.

Got a question for anyone.... has there been any word on a BIOS release for this board to allow the 45nm's? Will that even be possible with this board?

Beefcake (LOL!):
It is possible out-of-the-box now. I'm not sure what BIOS revision enabled this, but you're aces. Check out the nifty graphic on the website. It's the very first bullet:
http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?mo...3&l2=11&l3=397

Ncad:
I think you mean the 1302 BIOS version. It sounds like you might have accidentally overclocked something or switched something off that needs to be on. Maybe you could report your full BIOS settings. Were you able to pass POST before you changed things?

Mozzie:
Do not set SLI Memory. Even to 0%, this will mess everything up. DISABLE it. Please tell us what you have set in your FSB/MEMORY CLOCK screen. Also, what timings do you have set in your MEMORY TIMINGS screen?
