THE Asus Rampage Formula/Maximus Formula/P5E Deluxe/P5E Thread - Page 133

It should be CPU Ratio Setting. Either type '6' or press the plus sign to change the value.

Gear mentioned in this thread:

Thanks. I can almost taste victory. I'm almost ready to put this MB back in my water cooled chassis and be running on 4GB OC with my Velociraptors and all of the rest of my main rig gear. This poor baby is limping along with the P5Q and 2GB RAM.

However, I like this ANTEC 1200 so much better than my old CMStacker, I might go through the trouble of putting another WC kit in this box...decisions decisions.

I'll have to troll the forum to see what the DIY watercooling champs are these days. I have an old Danger Den solution if that's any hint for the last time I bothered to look.

I just need you to take the CPU down to x6 to take it out of the equation. That way we can pinpoint that it is the motherboard/ram settings that are the cause of your problem.

I think it's time to put the Rampage Formula BIOS on your board.

Done & Passed! Fixed the heatsink and am running 3.46GHz at FSB:RAM 1:1. Next step, creep the DRAM settings back up and see if I'm stuck with a strap problem or something else.

Test 5 - Pass: Regression Test Scenario #3 w/ CPU Ratio = 6
CPU @ 2.41GHz
DRAM @ 800Mhz
Idle: 43C
100% Load: 60C
  • Result: Pass. Prime95 for 1hr. Dropped the CPU MHz down from 3.21 --> 2.41.
  • CPU Ratio: 6.0
  • FSB Frequency: 400
  • DRAM Frequency: 800Mhz
  • DRAM Timing Control: Manual
  • DRAM Timing: 5-5-5-18

Test 6 - Pass: Retest Scenario 4
CPU @ 3.46GHz
DRAM @ 862Mhz
Idle: 43C
100% Load: 67C
  • Result: Pass. Prime95 for 1hr.
  • CPU Ratio: Auto
  • FSB Frequency: 431
  • DRAM Frequency: 862Mhz
  • DRAM Timing Control: Manual
  • DRAM Timing: 5-5-5-18

  • Test 3 is our first failure attempting to overclock w/ an FSB ratio greater than 1:1. This supports comments that this RAM on this board (or in the 4x1GB combination) is unstable. Will verify against Mushkin 2x2GB kit soon.

  • Test 4 may have failed due to CPU heat (92C). Replacing the Coolermaster Sphere with a Zalman 9700NT.

  • Test 5 (as requested by ERICEOD) passed an hour of Prime95, with good temps, w/o indication it would fail over an extended period.

  • In Test 6 we resolved the heatsink issue (max temp 67C under 100% load) and passes both Prime95 (1hr+) and 3DMark Vantage (14164). Next test is to slowly increase FSB:RAM ratio.

  • Test 7 was an assortment of CPU speeds at FSB:RAM ratios > 1:1. All failed, even when setting CPU Ratio to 6. Failures ranged from boot failures (mem test failed on boot) to Prime95 failures and hard-hangs in Windows.

ASUS P5E Overclock New Settings

RESULTS:
Increased CPU by 23.1%, 3DMark Vantage by 20.1%, at a cost of 10.45% increase in heat and decrease in DRAM speed of 24%.
  • P5E BIOS Version: 1003
  • Intel Q9450
  • 4x1GB OCZ Reaper PC2-9200
  • ATI Radeon HD4870X2

  • Stock: 2.66GHz @ 333Mhz FSB/1066Mhz DRAM
    • 3DMark Vantage: 11389
    • Prime95 15hrs...
    • Temps: 34C Idle, 60C 100% Load.

  • Last OC: 3.46GHz @ 431Mhz FSB/862Mhz DRAM (23.1% CPU Increase, 24% DRAM decrease)
    • 3DMark Vantage: 14257 (20.1% Increase)
    • Prime95: 11hrs and counting...
    • Temps: 37C Idle, 71C 100% Load (10.45% Increase).

BIOS Settings:
Note 1: Failures during OC with FSB:RAM ratio > 1:1.
Note 2: Setting CPU Ratio = 6x does not fix current failures.
  • Ai Overclock Tuner: Manual
  • CPU Ratio: Auto
  • FSB Frequency: 431
  • DRAM Frequency: 862
  • DRAM Timing Control: Manual
  • DRAM Timing: 5-5-5-18
  • CPU Ratio Setting: Auto
  • FSB Strap to NB: Auto
  • DRAM Command Rate: Auto (CPU-Z says 2T)
  • DRAM Static Read Control: Disabled
  • Ai Clock Twister: Light
  • Transaction Booster: Disabled
  • Relax Level: 3
  • VCore Voltage: 1.38v
  • CPU PLL Voltage: Auto
  • FSB Termination Voltage: Auto
  • DRAM Voltage: 1.96v
  • NB Voltage: 1.45v
  • SB Voltage: Auto
  • CPU Spread Spectrum: Disabled
  • PCIE Spread Spectrum: Disabled

Thanks everyone for your help, this is huge progress from where I was at 2 days ago.

Just waiting for the new RAM to see if I can get past this FSB:RAM ratio problem.

Here is my most modest attempt at overclocking the P5E with Q6600. Prior to setting Dram Static Read Control to Disable it would fail P95 to blue screen after an hour or so. Since it didn't have to have a BIOS reset after the blue screen I figured it was a memory issue. After reading through this thread I tried disabling the Dram Static Read Control and it has passed P95 8 hours.Any thoughts on the blue screen would be appreciated.

Here are some screen shots of the OC

So far I'm very happy with the Temps, haven't seen it go over 65c as of yet.

Nice OC on a B3 stepping! You might even go for 3.4.

Looks like you haven't set your DRAM frequency. Take it off auto and set it to DDR2-1066. (It should come up that way already, but you don't usually want the board second guessing you.)
