FSB strap to northbridge--Auto
PCIE frequency--------------100
DRAM frequency-------------DDR2 848MHz
DRAM command rate-------2T

DRAM static read control--Auto
AI clock twister--------------Auto
Transcation booster-------Auto
Vcore voltage---------------1.240v
CPU PLL voltage------------1.54v
FSB termination voltage---1.34v
DRAM voltage----------------2.20v
Northbridge voltage--------1.45v
South bridge voltage-------Auto
Loadline calibration--------Disabled
CPU GTL reference-----------0.63x
North bridge GTL reference-0.67x
SB 1.5 voltage---------------Auto
CPU spread spectrum------Disabled
PCIE spread spectrum------Disabled

(Asus P5E | Q9550 | A-Data PC2-8000 Vitesta Extreme Edition)

Thanks!

It could be your RAM holding you back. In the mean time, try setting AI CLock Twister to Light or Lighter. Then set Transaction Booster to 9 or 10. I also used to disable DRAM static read control. Have you noticed your board overvolting at all?

Hello, I would like to get some help here:

I have a ASUS P5QC, C2Q9400 @ 2,66ghz and 4gb ddr2 800mhz kingston and trying to get a stable overclock. The most "durable" options I got were those:

Ai overclock tuner-----------Manual
CPU ratio setting------------Auto
FSB frequency---------------400
FSB strap to northbridge-----400
PCIE frequency--------------100
DRAM frequency-------------DDR2 801MHz
DRAM timing control--------5-5-5-15
DRAM static read control--disabled
Vcore voltage---------------1.35v
CPU PLL voltage------------1.56v
FSB termination voltage---1.36v
DRAM voltage----------------1.90v
Northbridge voltage--------1.32v
South bridge voltage-------Auto
Loadline calibration--------enabled
CPU spread spectrum------Disabled
PCIE spread spectrum------Disabled

The rest of the options are by default. What I meant "durable" was in case I was not even playing any game and it gets blue screen, pc freezes, etc. For test I am using ibt maximum for 26 loops. But never get a stable OC.

Can anybody help me please?

Read my post above about AI Clock Twister and Transaction Booster. Also, your RAM voltage looks a little low at 1.9v. Most DDR2 kits are 2.1-2.2 volts. And you may want to try 1.35v-1.39v on the NB for a FSB of 400.

Keep in mind the he has a P45 chipset, which is a 65nm chipset, has a default NB voltage of 1.10v and is rated for 400 FSB. The board he has also uses DDR3 memory.

I would recommend NB voltage be set to around 1.20v. I can push a Q9650 in a P45 board to a 445 FSB OC with 1.24v NB.

So, for my case and my PC configuration, what option values would you recommend exactly for each of those?

Wow its nice to see you guys (ericeod and spacegoast) are still keeping up on this thread. I still have my P5E Deluxe flashed to 0401 atm, but after reading all 1700 posts *lol* it looks like I will be flashing to 0803. The reason I am doing this is that I have recently run into a prob with my ballistix tracer 1066 (4x1gb sticks). Ive read some places that this ram tends to go bad fast, and that this board doesnt like that ram. Any opinions or comments on that?

Also I will be setting up a raid for with my flash to 0803, can somebody help me with that or should i just follow the directions in the op? Thanks to all who have posted and helped in this thread as it has been SO extremely helpful to me, I got my e8400 past 5ghz with my current settings so I'm hoping to go a little further!

You can just follow the directions in the first post on crossflashing to the 803 Rampage Formula bios. As for the Ballistix, they do tend to go bad, but the 1Gb sticks seem to run ok on these boards, it is the 2Gb sticks that tend to not run well. I remember Crucial actually pulled the Intel X38/X48 chipset from their supported list. I dont know if they ever got this issue resolved though.
