im still sitting at P04 without any issues just wondering if i should step up to latest. They do anything else besides fixing the video corruption issue?

This is their official list of what the updates do, not sure if anyone that's not having problems should bother. Some people are reporting better overclocks and more stable memory at higher speeds.......others are reporting the exact opposite.

Quote:
P05p Updates:

* Improves graphics corruption fix. Isolated configurations were experiencing hangs with fix in P05 BIOS.


P05 Updates:

* Resolves graphics corruption issues when playing videos with certain 780i and GPU configurations.
* USB / SATA compatibility improvements
* ASUS Sonar card detection fix
* CPU Multiplier reporting fix
* PCI Express performance improvements
* Enhanced save/restore of overclocking profiles
* SLI Memory option disabled for 4 DIMM configuration (config is not supported, but users are free to overclock on their own)
* Updated microcode for upcoming CPUs

Mr. XfreerollerX,

I have a 780i and E8400, SLI-READY PC8500 memory and would love to over clock. Could you post the setting you used to get to your AWESOME 4.27 GHZ with the E8400.

I'm running stock CPU cooling right now but suspect I can safely OC to about 3.5 or 3.75. A starting point for good settings would be appreciated.

Many thanks

You guys should read all the pages with the P05 bios, it is causing the most problems for people out of all of the others and I am not talking about just the SLI memory issue.

Im skipping it, I just got my comp up and running for the first time in two months and I dont want to kill it again.

Suggestions on a good CPU Oc: Drop your multiplier to 7x, unlink the RAM so it stays at its stock speed (manually set it) then set your CPU volts to 1.29 (actually, not BIOS, this may require setting as much as 1.35 volts to get 1.29) Then raise your FSB to 1600-1800 depending on what you want as a MAX OC. Since you are running PC8500, I suggest running a higher FSB, 1800 will get you a max OC of 4.05ghz which should be decent enough. After you stablize your FSB settings, (before even raising your multi) start stress testing. if it passes, then bump multi up 1 number. if it fails, drop down to 6. If it fails again - this means your NB or RAM is unstable. if your RAM is stock, bump NB voltage 1 level untill it gets stable. if that doesn't work, be sure your RAM isnt defective.

when it passes, slowly bump up the CPU multipliers. once you hit a point where something is not stable,

hope this helps if you get more issues, start a new thread in the Intel section and PM me a link to it so I can come by and help

EDIT: and yeah, Im skipping P05b BIOS, too many issues... I have a great OC and have no bugs. Even if there is a PCI Improvement...whatever

Same here. Ever since upgrading to P05/P, I have been getting BSOD's while playing WoW. I would occassionally have WoW crash back to desktop, but never BSOD under P04.

So what is the lesser of 2 evils......video corruption issues under P04 or BSOD's while gaming under P05/P?
