Saw this in your other thread,could not help there,cannot help here...sorry.
The one thing I will say about my MAXIMUS-RAMPAGE hybrid is that it loves voltages !!
I saw my cpu V was running ar 1.45 V at 3.6G on auto..Im not happy with that as I have run 1.387V at 3.6 G before and stable.
Sooo,into bios and I drop it down and boot/stress...Im now on 1.365 Volts with a 1 hour prime95 stress with no Bsod.!
Pretty good going I reckon..Things like NB and SB ,cpl V and ram thrive on Voltages..
Ive also played with the CPU UP setting and found incredible results !
I selected the QX9570 and went for auto up..The settings came out at 3G and 800meg ram with tight timings ! Multi ran 9 and I decided to set the speed up to 400 x 9 again..
This was still on 18.104.22.168 timings at 800megs. Things worked like a charm !
If this was good,more can only be better,right ??
RIGHT !! Went for 1203 meg ram o.c. and left the timings where they were..posted and booted,but Vista would not go further than the Logo stage..
Loosened timings to 22.214.171.124 and bingo !! Stable for an hour on prime95..!
The downside to the RAMPAGE bios is that HWMonitor and CPUz dont display all the settings ! Especially CPUz..no multi,no ram data,no timings...this is a real bummer for me ..
Im sure future bios upgrades might sort this out..
Oh,and 3DMark 06 ?
I dropped 50 odd points here..strange cozz I find if you drop or gain its more like 200 odd points either way..
Ill play some more...btw,my score was 13789..second best yet..stock gpu still..
Am I sorry that I fashed this bios yet ! NO WAY !! It has done stuff tthat FORMULA could never have allowed or was capable of.
