THE Asus Rampage Formula/Maximus Formula/P5E Deluxe/P5E Thread - Page 85

post #841 of 2014
You could go for the Rampage BIOS; that solved my issues.


Also be very careful when setting things in the BIOS; I noticed my board has a very nasty tendency to set the FSB voltage to 2.00! Fortunately it just sets it, and I change it to normal (1.5) before saving and applying the settings.

I'll probably flash the P5E Deluxe 0205 BIOS first since many people have been having great luck with it.

If that doesn't produce at least the same effects as the P5E 0605 then I'll hit the Rampage BIOS.

If neither one of them work then I'll go back to P5E 0605 where I know everything was running great.

Some quick tests with BIOS 0903, previous BIOS RF0403

24/7 10X350, 5:8 1120 Post in Windows, Used these voltage settings all tests
10X350 3:5 1167 Post in Windows
10X300 1:2 1200 ran Aquamark & 32M Super Pi
10X360 3:5 1200 Post in Windows

The Transaction Booster subtracted 2 instead of 1 at enable 0 on my board
Everest scores a little less at 1120 than what I was getting with RF0403
No post, Clock Twister Strong at 10X350

Checking FSB
6X460 3:4 1227 Post in Windows
6X465 3:4 1239 Post No Windows
The FSB is the same that I had with RF0403

Checking RAM
8X414 2:3 1242 Post in Windows,
8x417 2:3 1251 Post No Windows

Benching
8x460 3:4 1227, could set a PL of 6, Everest Latency 50.2ns, wouldn't finish 32M PI
Here is a screen shot, 8x450 3:4 1200 5-5-5-15-5-42, PL6 with a 3dMark 06 & 32M PI run

I was going to post the screen shot here, but not use to the site yet.

i seem to be having trouble with the P5E Deluxe BIOS 0205. I cant hit 3.2ghz with it. I cant hit 3.03ghz just fine though. my settings:
FSB-380 using 266 strap and RAM at 1003mhz
8X multi
VCORE-1.35v
NB-1.45v
SB-auto
FSB Term Vol.-1.4
RAM Voltage-2.1
LLC-enabled
CPU GTL-.63
NB GTL-.67

it wont even boot at these settings. with the RF BIOS i could OC a lot easier and im not sure why. i hit 3.6 easy and now i cant even hit 3.2. any suggestions?

spacegoast, what is Transaction Booster set to? Try setting it to 9 and see if you can overclock.

Wow, I am loving this new 0403 BIOS.

I am now fully stable at 3.8 ghz.

Eric, Your settings a page or two back really helped, for some reason I was needing 1.55-1.6 volts with the old BIOS for the NB, now I only need 1.53 ish for a 20 mhz (80 mhzQDR) boost.

ok i set the transaction booster to 9 and i was able to boot at 3.6ghz (400x9) . thanks eric. i will try setting to 8 and see if it boots. i didnt realize it has such an effect on overclocks if left on auto. thanks though

Did you run memtest though?

I can get plent of settings to boot, but getting them stable is very tough.

The Transaction Booster (tRD) is very specific with these boards. I posted a few days ago aabout my findings. Like you, I never realized how important the setting is for a stable OC. But the tRD has just as much to do with the chipset as it does with the ram (latency of the chipset).

9 is a pretty loose setting, so keep trying to tighten it.

I was trying to find a balance between CPU speed and ram performance. In doing so, I have discovered with my Rampage Formula, that at 423 FSB I can run a Transaction Booster mode of 6, with the ram on a 5:4 divider at DDR2 1058. My tFRC is at 45 and timings are at 5-5-5-12 with 1.8v. I get a nice latency of 54.9ns in everest. My NB voltage is 1.45v and CPU is 1.44v vcore.

But if I go even 1 MHz up in FSB to 424, I cant even boot with Transaction Booster at 6, even with the NB voltage at 1.55v, CPU vcore at 1.5v and tRFC at 70. I even set the ram timings to 5-5-5-15.

So I set the Transaction Booster to 7. I was able to bring everything down to the voltages I had before (except CPU, I left it just to make sure it wouldnt crash at 3.86GHz as it runs 3.9GHz at 1.5v). My everest latency this time was 57.6ns.

So it just shows how the Transaction Booster affects performance and is key to overclocking with the FSB and memory.

So for those trying to discover their highest CPU overclock, I recommend setting the Transaction Booster to 10 to keep it from hindering your overclock while you are dialing it in.

Ya I read that when you first posted it, but at that point in time I was sitting on 3.03ghz (and didnt refer back to it). I tried going to 3.2ghz and it wouldnt post. But right now I have it at 3.6ghz with the Transaction Booster at 7. I havent tried 6 yet. That will have to wait till later on tonight. We'll see what happens. Thanks again.
