Asus P5Q [P5Q Pro, P5Q-E, P5Q Deluxe] DDR2 discussion - Page 2

post #11 of 29
I came across another thing that kind of ticked me off. One of the SATA connectors is placed in line with the primary PCIe slot, which will conflict with most current video cards (8800GTS in this instance). Also the 2 connectors placed at a right angle are a bit flimsy and didn't seem to lock securely with SATA2 cables.

I used the P5Q pro in a friend's build with 4gb G.Skill PC8500 and a HD4850 and topped off with a E8400. He is loving it

you can use the 'angled' sata cable supplied. it works for me while using the huge HD4870.

although i think they should supply us with the 'click' sata cables.

gents, need some help please.
I am no OC expert so bear with me as this PQ5-E has more BIOS options than a poor ole mech engineer can understand. I have the PQ5-E, an E8400, and 4 gb Kingston HyperX ram. I am just trying to gain some mild OC'ing but something's not right. It seems no matter what multipler I use (right now I have the FSB set to 400, and the multiplier at 9.0), when I boot and run CPU-Z is shows my FSB speed is 1600, and RAM at DDR2-800 which is all good. But the CPU clock is still at 2400 and the multiplier is staying at 6.0. I have checked over and over and it is set in BIOS at 09.0. ANy reason why the 6.0 won't go to 9.0? Thx

Oh, and if anyone can tell me what the FSB strap to NB setting does, and what I should have it at, please let me know. Have it in Auto right now. thx again

Any Q6600 oc'ing experience with the P5Q Pro or -E versions?
post #17 of 29
Do you have he settings that allow OS overclocking? TM, c1e?

I disabled all of those. Make sure you have CPU Spectrum and PCIE Spectru,m disabled.

SpeedStep - Automatically lowers the multiplier from its max. (9x for the Q6600) to 6x when the machine is idle. The result is less power consumption and heat production. It goes back up to 9x when you start to get a CPU load. Disable initially, enable later on and see if the system remains stable. This is a power savings option.
Try disabling that

God bless you. I ran a stress test and CPU-Z instantly showed max ratio and 3.6Ghz during the test! Now I just need to figure out how to disable this "speed-step" feature. If I click on the 6-Engine icon, it says it can't be adjusted in Overclocking mode. Weird.

It's under the advanced tab in your bios
