But on memory, I have ...

graphics booster... auto
multi .... 7x
fsb.... 472
pcie .... 100
cia2... disabled
spd.... 2.0
performance enhance.... turbo
5-5-5-15

voltage manual
ddr2 +0.2
fsb... normal
mch normal
cpu...1.4
The only thing different is the fact you have performance enhance on something besides standard. Of course changing this option does nothing for my OC, but I find it interesting that everything I've seen says to keep this on standard if you want a stable OC.

Gigabyte addresses this issue in their motherboard FAQ, but the setting they refer to doesn't exist on this board. So, short of taking a gamble by replacing the hard drive with one that may or may not fire up quicker, am I just stuck with this problem?
This is a classic problem caused by your boot priority.

In the BIOS, change your boot priority for hard drive as the first boot up and select nothing for the second and third.

And then make sure your boot drive is the first hard drive selected (if you have more than 1 hard drive).

I wish it was that easy, but what you described is how I've had it set since I built it.

Yeah... nevermind. I re-read your post carefully.

I'm operating on 10 hours of sleep this whole week.

New member here guys! This thread kicks ass. I've had my Q6600 SLACR chip for over a year now with this mobo and I've had it overclocked since I put the system together. I started out at 8x400fsb = 3.2ghz with 1:1 divider. Recently, while fiddling around I manged to break one of the fins on my cpu cooler so I decided to upgrade to a zeroTherm cooler that has really brought my temps down.

I've changed my overclock settings and I think it's for the better. I've managed to unlink my ram and run it at 480mhz by using the 2.4x divider. It feels much snappier in general use but I haven't really had a chance to benchmark it quite yet. Is it better to leave it at 1:1 if I can mange to squeeze 400fsb? Mostly gaming and watching movies, listening music etc.

Welcome to OCN...

Its best to have your ram running as high as possible (stable)... 2.4x divider would be better than 2x divider

The 1:1 ratio means nothing with the new intel systems

This changes tRead and tRead Phase Adjust. I think it may have other slight effects also. If you increase this, or lower tRD manually, you may have to add GMCH voltage.
