My settings are: +.2 fsb, +.2 mch, +.6 ram(sounds high i know, but it keeps my ram at exactly 2.22v), 1.45v vcore(makes 1.41v with droop). I have been folding linux smp for well over 24 hours without so much as a hiccup. Got my time/frame down to 10:05 too. This board will do 400 no problem, just make sure that you're psu is good and stable. The vdroop is a problem, but as long as it works im not really worried about it.

That's an excellent FSB on that board. You need to be careful running +0.6v DDR2. That board defaults to 1.8v DDR2 so I would add +0.4v to bring it to 2.2v. Ram will run at higher voltages. But will eventually burn out.

There is vdroop on the ram side too. I monitor the voltages closely constantly. It runs consistently at 2.22 volts under load and doesnt get hot at all either. I lowered my timings to 6-6-6-18 to free things up a bit too. I might try to lower them back doen to 5-5-5-15 to up the bandwidth a bit. The ram is micron based so it should take the heat with no problems.

I've upped the vcore in the mobo bios to 1.40 with cpu-z showing 1.36. Still unstable though. I'll see if raising the vcore higher will help at all. I'm gonna throw in the towel soon since this is so frustrating. LoL!

I have memtest86 on a cd and I did check for errors before but it didn't show any. I just let it run until it told me it had no errors. Is it ok to test it that way? Or is there a particular way to use memtest?
I did notice you had an aftermarket NB cooler. If it feels a bit hot, just throw a fan on it.

You don't want to push the CPU past 1.36v, not for 45nm CPUs anyway. Try for 3.8-3.9Ghz first, then you can work your way up to 4Ghz. At least you'll have a rough idea of how much headroom you have left to OC to 4Ghz. I assumed you went from 3.6 to 4Ghz in one go, so yeah.

--Edit--
Oh yeah, I almost forgot. You need to run Memtest86 like you would do for Prime 95 (ex: your CPU can pass 20 minutes of Prime, but fail after 30minutes. Same goes for RAM, it could complete two sets of memtests fine, but fail on the third one.)

If you still don't get it, just run Memtest for about 3-4 hours.

I did try 3.9ghz and no go at all. I had to reset CMOS after that. The Enzotech chipset cooler already has a fan on it. I'll try running the memtest for 3-4 hours and go from there. I'll post later what my results are. Thanks again.

I ran memtest test #2 and #5 for 3 hours and no errors at all. Guess I'll try again to overclock that E8400 but I have a gut feeling I won't be successful. I had a thought of installing that E8400 in my other motherboard the Gigabyte P35-DS3R. I don't know if that would make any difference at all. Rpg2 thanks for all your help.

Haha, no problem. There would only be a slight chance that a different board, but with the same chipset would make a difference in OCing. It might be the chip itself.

If the different board thing doesn't work out, then I recommend that you, if you haven't done it yet, OC to 3.8-3.9Ghz as mentioned in previous posts. That would be a good way to check if your chip can OC to 4Ghz.

Hello Everyone I'm gonna buy this motherboard in like 2 months when i save enough money for my custom built pc. I plan on getting the Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 2.66GHz, 1333FSB (Quad Core) 12000K i hope to overclock to at least 3 gigs. Will this CPU be easy to overclock on this board? Also i plan on getting a SATA DVD burner my question is Will sata dvd burner install windows XP ? Is there stupid SATA driver you gotta load for the DVD burner or does it work just like a regular IDE ?
Any thoughts or suggestions would be great thanks

The DVD drive will work when you plug it in as long as SATA is turned on in the BIOS and yes your processor should overclock fine if you use the first post in this thread as a guide. You have made a wise choice in motherboards as i just achieved a 500 Mhz fsb with mine and you should never need to get that far. Make sure you have a quality psu and you should have no problem. Also i forgot to tell you. You may need to flash your bios immediately after you get this board because the Q9450 is a fairly new processor and the bios that ships with it may not be current enough to run it properly. Gigabyte has a great utility for this that doesnt require a boot into windows to do it. You just need a floppy with the bios on it and obviously a floppy drive hooked up.
