Help with PK5 PRO and Q6600

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for help on getting bios settings right for a ASUS P5K Pro motherboard with an Intel Core 2 Quad processor (Q6600) and 2 1GB Elixir PC-6400 DDR2 800MHZ RAM (http://www.elixir-memory.com/product...12Mb-C-R10.pdf)

I'm a complete noob when it comes to computer assembly and as my first system this isn't going very well. As I install windows the system shuts down and sometimes comes back with an "Overclocking failed" message despite me keeping things at factory settings for my first install.

As of now I fear that my RAM is just too low grade to perform at all (sadly enough the best I could find in rural Japan). I noticed that other users on the board have very similar systems to mine and was wondering if anyone could give me help with BIOS settings so I can make the system stable, install windows and start learning more/testing overclocking strategies.
