Enhanced Intel Speedstep: Disable it

Enhanced C1 (C1E): Disable it

Legacy USB Support: Disable it

HPET: Disable it
Be sure to do the above. I disabled everything. I think there are a couple others in there that Robilar didn't mention. I'm not sure if they matter too, but they're off in my BIOS.

You got the two chips right. The best thing you can do to your motherboard is to replace the thermal paste on those chips. If you're uncomfortable with those voltages, don't run them. You can never go wrong listening to your gut, but I'll say that there are tons of people running those temps with the stock dried up thermal paste on their MBs.

Go unlinked, leave your RAM settings on AUTO/default whatever and just mess with the speed for now, but make sure they are running close to the right voltages. What you want to focus on is your FSB though.

Set your FSB to 1600 and Memory to 1066 with your voltages back up. See what happens. I wouldn't be surprised if it boots right up. This board has had issues with certain settings on certain BIOS versions. Somewheres between 2.7GHz and 3.0GHz if I remember correctly from when I was 1st OCing my E6600. I had all kinds of issues until I jumped straight past to 3.2GHz. If it doesn't work, just reboot.

Just think of the north and south in RealLife. Your NB is at the top (like the north in RL) and you SB is at the south (like in RL). It is just that simpel m8

But is you have your mobo up-side-down perhaps my tip won't work out that well. But if you have that you won't be able to stick in your usb, dvi and other connecters

Thanks for the info on nb/sb, that helps. I was over thinking it.

Anything other the 667mhz on my ram seems to prevent a consistent boot. Tried FSB 1600, and all sort of other combos to no effect. Given that I've read the newer BIOS's have updates for "newer" memory I keep reverting back to wondering if flashing to 1701 might help sort me out in the department.

Understanding the scariness of BIOS updating (yes, it scares the crap out of me) is 1701 generally known as good or bad? It's a good number in as far as Star Trek is concerned, I'd just like to know if it's a well known disaster before I give it any more thought.

hmm further reading about this mobo show the memory ratings for it at Dual-channel DDR2 800/667/533.

I guess that means the most I can run this 1150mhz memory at is 800? I guess I could change my timings from 5-5-5-18 though?

At any rate, still wondering if he 1701 bios is worth updating to from 1205 to possibly get beyond the 3.0ghz mark.

Sorry for the multiposting, just trying to sort this out.

Messing around with your timings before your FSB and CPU are stable is only going to waste your time and frustrate you further. Flash to 1701 if you're having issues. Leave your memory timings alone until you you max out your FSB and yes, you can overclock past 800MHz. Did I mention to leave your memory timings on auto?
post #5456 of 5659
ok, mem timings and all that will be left to auto for now. Since I can't get past the 2.7/3.0 range at all I'm thinking I'll go ahead with the BIOS update to 1701 and see if that gets me anywhere.

You have to update your bios to work around those problems you have. Matty J and I had the same problems as you can read at the previous pages and it helped me out and now it helped him out. Use the asus update tool and you will stay out of trouble. I don't know how old you are but it is not the same as in the early years, it's quiet easy. Just shutdown most of your programs and let it do the job. After the reboot it will update your processor and stuff like that and will boot to windows after a time.

After that, and with the correct NB-settings as Matty J mentioned, you will get across the 3Ghz-limit very easy

oh my sweet Jesus on a pogostick I just scared this **** out of myself.

I went out and picked up a little 1gb USB stick as I didn't have one around, popped the 1701 BIOS on there, stuck it in the back and rebooted into EZFlash. Sadly it didn't see the stick for some reason. So, I spent a good hour hunting around for an answer to that finally deciding to make the stick bootable and update the BIOS from there with awflash. As I rebooted, and just out of habit, I hit delete to enter set up again instead of letting it boot from the stick. While there I thought ah hell, let's see if EZFlash sees it... and hey, it did!

So, I happily pick my new BIOS and click "yes update the damned thing" or whatever it said. After saying "please please please" the entire time of the update, it said it completed ok and would reboot my system in 5 seconds which it did. TO A SOLID BLACK SCREEN. I had nothing. The cursing was unbelievable. Pulled the USB stick and switched off/on again. Black screen, and further cursing. As I looked at it before this BIOS update could have one of three outcomes.
  1. It updates ok, and I'm able to get better overclocks.
  2. It updates ok, and my overclocks are the same.
  3. It doesn't update ok and I'm totally screwed.

At this point I was looking at #3. After a wee bit more cursing I checked this thread again on my laptop and noticed waaaay back on page 10 or so Robilar was telling Dijonace to pull his CMOS battery for a few seconds to sort out a problem he had with a black screen (though his was caused by a mistaken setting in the BIOS). I literally ran back downstairs and pulled the battery and waited an eternity (a few minutes)... stuck it back in and...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!!!

Holy hell and jumping moses I couldn't believe it. I was already running through the options in my head of a new mobo, a visit to the local shop etc. I haven't been this relieved/happy since probably ever. I have yet to test my OC potential with this BIOS but at this point I will HAPPILY accept outcome #2 above, while just hoping for #1.

This may never have even been a big deal for all I know, but it sure was to me. For the save... THANK YOU ROBILAR and THANK YOU DIJONACE and THANK YOU OVERCLOCK.NET.

Sorry for the long story but I think I'm suffering from post traumatic stress disorder or something. I need to go lay down now.

Windows XP here, but I've heard scary things about it and that it's better to update from the BIOS (as said in the very first post of this thread in fact). Given how this went, maybe I'll try that next time... if there is a next time. Hopefully not.
