P5N32-E SLI w/Crucial Ram @ 1066? Help!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I apologize in advance if this has been posted elsewhere. I did a lengthy search, and read the P5N32-E overclock guide, but did not find an answer to my problem.

My system is as follows:

Processor: Intel E6750 (Not Overclocked)
Mobo: P5N32-E SLI (1404 BIOS)
GFX: eVGA 8800 GTS (G92) 512MB (Running in SLI mode)
OS: Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit

Today I upgraded to this type of RAM:
Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500)
Four 1GB Sticks

With everything set on Auto, my computer works fine.
The problem of course is the P5N32-E SLI only supports up to 800mhz RAM.
To acquire full 1066mhz speed you have to "Overclock" your RAM.

I can not for the life of me get it to work. Has anyone here had any luck? I've found countless posts of people doing it with OCZ... but nothing pertaining to people doing it with Ballistix.

The best luck I have had is setting the memory's voltage to 2.2, enabling the SLI Compatible RAM setting, and cranking it up to MAXOC. This allows me to boot into windows for about 5-6 seconds before I crash. Everything else I've tried causes the screen to remain black at the point where the Windows Loading Bar should have popped up.

I have tried manually setting the timings, various voltages around 2.2, setting the NB voltage to 1.4, having the FSB and Memory linked with a 5:4 ratio, as well as trying it unlinked.

Anyone have a system that's already accomplished what I'm trying to do? Or any other suggestion for that matter?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Set the ram speed to the stock speed (1066).Try a little more voltage to ram just to see.Also you should fill in system specs in user cp.Also up northbridge volts for 4 x1 ram
