I think you have to do a biosupdate. I'm running over 3.0Ghz with stock-volts. I had the same problem as you, at the same Hz. Unstable at 2.8Ghz, sometimes boot failures, and reboot was necessary. Update you bios, put volts on stock-values and you should be fine I think.

Good Luck!
Okay i will try the latest BIOS. I think its 1701 or something... Anyone had any issues with it?

Are you having any issues now? If not, there isn't any need to change it unless you plan on installing a newer CPU. Don't try to fix what is not broke.

Okay Guys, I have just updated to Bios 1701.

I used the Asus Update program from inside windows and all has gone well.

Although i have kinda just scared my self.

As this is my 1st bios update in years and things have changed alot. When the Pc rebooted i went into BIOS and told it to reset all setting to default just to make sure it would boot into windows. And it did. I then restarted the PC and decided to OC my Q6600 again.
After setting all the setting when i hit "save and exit" i got a message saying something along the lines of "updating **something** table"... i was like :S?? never seen that before.. when the comp restarted it failed to get to windows and got stuck on a page with aload of random words and symbols, i didnt manage to get a pick of it as i pooped myself and restarted the comp straight away to get back into bios and reset to default. Everything seems to be fine now but i was just wondering if this is normal or did something go wrong?

Anyone else had issues like this witht he new BIOS?

This is what i get When i set the fsb to 1200 to get 2.7GHz. Sorry for the blury ness but ost is readable.. was taken from my phone in a hurry. lol







I have no idea what this means..Anyone now what this means or is caused by... I have a feeling it is something to do with my memory..???
post #5435 of 5659
And if you reset everything is normal? Did you unsync your memory, and what kind of memory is it. I'm am not familiar with this error at all, sorry. But cause you mentioned your thoughts about the mem. you see..

TaraBass.

I seem to have fixed this issue.. sort off atleast. If i set the fsb to 1333 (3Ghz) unlinked to the memory still at 800Mhz it will boot into windows perfectly well. BUT.... after about 3 mins i get a BSOD saying

##### Hardware Malfuntion #####

Please contact the manufacturer

### Your system has halted ###

It think this is because my NB Vcore is too low.

My memory is 2x 1GB Kingston Supertalent. Its nothing special but runs at 5-5-5-15 2T timings. I'm thinking of getting myself 4gb of ballistix 1066 for the upcoming Windows 7.

I think for sum reason it doesnt like 2.7. but i aint going to complain if i can get 3Ghz working fine. I will set my NB to 1.3v manually, i think its at 1.2 on Auto.. not sure.. hopefully this will make it work.

Be careful with linked memory, and overclocking. You could bake your memory

Why don't you bring down your fsb, and looks if it's stable. If it is you have a pointer and go from there. Imo you are doing two things at the time, in other words that's the way I would do it. Now I'm not that great overclocker and can learn a lot from people at this board, but I'm love to be secure and want to have a pointer to go back to. Save the profile in your bios with stock-volts and lower (stable) fsb-value, and you can go from there.

Glad to here that you are back in windows again, felt a little bad after recommend the bios-update. It worked for me, but every system is another system. Maybe some overclock-guru can help you (us) from your stable settings to a stable hardcore setting

My memory is Un-linked from my fsb so although my cpu fsb is at 1333 my memory still runs at 800mhz so it is not boosted at all. slight bottleneck though so thats why im opting form some 1066 ballistix.

I have got my system stable now. no more BSOD.. after re-reading the 1st post on my dads PC i upped to NB to 1.3 as it was on 1.2 and all seems fine.. have run 3Dmark06 CPU test to stress it a little as well as a few games of BF2 and nothing has happend!.. woop.

Thanks for recomending the BIOS dude, all has worked out well in the end it just boiled down to me being a dum nut lmao... serves me right for starting at 8 in the mornin lmao.. hadnt woken up.

So to sum up. Thanks to you TaraBass my cpu voltage is now registering the same in BIOS as in windows, my cpu is now at 3.0Ghz and my temps are idle 25oc and load (3DMark06) 32-35. So i am now happy.

I'm thinking of buying another 9800GTX+ and going SLI, i currently have a 650w PSU, i take it this is not enough for 2 cards, what should i go for? 850 or higher.

Once again. Thanks alot!

NP m8! We are here to help each other. You may give me some rep-points if you want, you would have the dubious honor to be the first

Again, I'm not a die hard overclocker but had the same problems. It was very similar to what I experienced with this MB and CPU. Fortunately I have some overclock-memorymodules so I can push them a bit to be not that bottleneck where you are talking about. Buy some new ones and you will have one balanced machine.

About the extra videocard, I'm not a sli-fan. For that 10% of extra power I would buy a newer (ati is the fastest card atm, quality price ratio) graca. Then you have a energy efficient system, without the produce of much heat.

But if you want to calculate yourself how much power you will need, at the previous page is a link to a PSU calculator. Considering that stable would be the keyword in your choice for a new PSU.

Again no problem helping you out. There will be a point you may help me out with my problems
