Yup. 9550 are only 230 shipped at the egg. And from reviews, it looks like they are sending strictly E0 now! I am ordering one after my honeymoon next week.

Hi fellow OC'ers!
Jeez this thread has grown since I last looked !! Nice to see that this board still attracts enough attention! Tons of new info and tips!!
!! Gz to the OP for the success and maintanance of the thread !!

I've come back because I am going to replace the memory in my system with (G.Skill F2-8000CL5D-4GBPQ 4GB [2x2GB] DDR2). These seem to be a better option for gaming than the 4x1Gb Ballistix pc-8500's. The rest of the system is staying the same. But because the memory is being replaced, that means that the whole OC process will have to be done again

Before placing the new ram in, are there any mobo settings in particular I should be aware of/take into consideration before memtesting the 2x2GB sticks (other than the obvious: mem-overvolting from the board, LLC, DRAM Static)? Example: Fsb>NB strap and Skews.

Thanks in advance, and I'll be sure to update you all as progress continues.

^ Same as before. I would reset CMOS though before you put them in and just start the OC over. I leave FSb->NB strap on AUTO, that way when you go to select DRAM frequency a little below it, you have more choices to set RAM to. If you select a particualr strap, I think DRAM will only have 4 options for each strap. If left on AUTO, all available will populate in DRAM Frequency. I dont mess with the skews either.

Just wondering what bios is recommended for use with the Asus P5E X38? Currently running 0605 Bios and havent had a change since a year now.

Are you experiencing problems with the 0605 bios? If not, then why not stay with that?

Recomended bios for our mobo (P5E) is actually the Rampage Formula bios. It gives us/you more stability and more OC options. Current version is 0803.

Just figured I'd see whats more up to date and what everyone else is using. Is the Rampage bios really the recommended one for P5E? xD But I actually am having some little freezing up issues on browsers but thats probably something to do with my overclock I'd assume.

Yes, reading thru the thread, the Rampage Formula bios has been advised to almost all the OC'ers. I myself have been using the Rampage bios since 04xx version. At the time I had 4x1Gb Balistix pc-8500's and the Rampage bios gave me more OC stability with those sticks and my E8500 proc.

Although, depending on your OC wishes and system, you may have more advantage by using the P5E bios's instead of the Rampage's.
Example: P5E bios may read cpu core at 1.15v (stock) and the Rampage's bios may read 1.2v (stock) or the other way around.
or
P5E may read dram at 2.1v (stock) and the rampage's at 2.2v (stock) or the other way around.

Only advice I could give you as a moderate OC'er would be (and this will take some time) to test every P5E version and see which lets you run your cpu/ram/NB (cpu and ram at stock settings) at the least most voltages, then try the Rampage's. OC both the best P5E and Rampage bios and compare the 2 results. That's really the only way to tell which bios is best for your system. And maybe someone else will come along shortly and let us know whick versions of both the P5E and Rampage bios's are proven to be the most stable thus far.

All in all, the Rampage has proven to give better results/stabilty/options amongst the users in this thread. I can OC my proc 5% more with the Rampage bios compared to tyhe P5E bios at 1.36x volt

Sorry for the long reply and hope this helps you somewhat

It's good info. My question is how exactly do you flash to the Rampage bios? As I'm new to overclocking and I'd rather not attempt something that I could screw up xD.
