I remember from my 6400+ did not like the HT link above 1050 MHz and was able to OC more out of it with the HT link at 4x.
Overclocking the HT refrence clock will overclock the NB & IMC which can boost performance quite a bit. The limit of the total HT frequency varies between boards: My best board is capable of 1600MHz, my worst around 1250 or so.

I also switched back to newest BIOS version 5002, yesterday I thought that the problems derived from that version and wanted to try that older one.

In BIOS CPU Frequency is 200 MHz and the CPU Voltage is that 1.3375 V like You Carl asked me to do, was that the right place?

How about with the CPU to NB HT Voltage (HyperTransport right?), do I need to change something in there or elsewhere?

Guess I can manage with this and hope that ASUS would support also this 125W 945 CPU as well.

Again Thank You a lot - from Northern Europe where there is +2 ft (~60 cm) of snow around my place.

Good that I found this site, next to update my user profile specs to a good level.

Tony,

Welcome. Sharing info here is key.

Literally what I wrote is what I did. The machine is rock solid. That means I only changed Vcore. Didn't try to play with NB or SB voltages, and as Kenshin wrote, those are for OC. And even though this is an OC website, I'm just thankful I can make the upgrade itself work.

I do resonate with your plea to properly support the 125W processors in BIOS. But I also recognize this is an ancient board and have no expectations from ASUS at this point. Since AM3 is somewhat recent, you have futureproofed yourself I suppose to some extent if you get around to upgrading the mobo.

Finally about the weather, where you live is surely cold and you must be used to it. But down here in South Florida we are not used to freezing weather and it is quite a shock to most that live here.

Cheers,
Carl

I'm here again with some problem

History :
Well, 2/3 months ago I have changed 2 sticks of my DHX because was too height for my new cooler ven-x.
I had 4x1gb DHX and now I have 2x1gb DHX + 2x1gb Black Dragon:

GeIL CL4-4-4DDR2-800
GeIL CL4-4-4DDR2-800
Corsair XMS2 DHX CM2X1024-6400C4DHX
Corsair XMS2 DHX CM2X1024-6400C4DHX

I have BSOD now, not everyday but often!
What is not causing problems:
-Beta Bios= because when I had zalman9700 and 4x1 DHX, i hadnt BSOD
-Sticks GEIL= because on other config with other mems, havent BSOD
-Sticks DHX= because with zalman and 4x1 DHX, i hadnt BSOD
-HDD= is new SSD
-SLI= is ok i hope

Now:
How can i fix?
I have read that could be a problem with timings. Whats value i must use?

I'm using ddr2 @ 667, because if i use @ 800, my config doesnt do fake boot and doesnt start


Thx to all

Set your ram at AUTO for everything, then reboot. Check your ram timings in CPUID and Bios. Mine BSOD if i change to 4-4-4-12-1T but the default runs fine @ 5-5-5-5-18-2T

Dram Frequency 420 Mhz
FSB: DRAM 1:2
CAS# Latency (CL) 5.0 Clocks
RAS# TO CAS# Delay (tRCD) 5 Clocks
RAS# Precharge (tRP) 5 Clocks
Cycle Time (tRAS) 18 Clocks
Bank Cycle Time (tRC) 23 Clocks
Command Rate (CR) 2T

As for the guy wanting a CPU, i have an AMD Athlon 4800+ with a brand new phenom CPU fan if you want ( am in the UK though)

I'm thinking the RAM I bought is DDR2 800. In looking at the BIOS, it appears the board is able to accept DDR2 1066. Is that a worthy upgrade? Typically 20% should be noticeable...?

Friends, do undervolt lowers the TDP of a processor or just the temperature? if the lower tdp, a CPU that consumes 125w should consume as after doing the undervolt? will further protect the mosfet or not?

You will not really notice any difference in everyday usage.
If really you want to improve the performance of your system do some overclocking. Only overclocking the IMC/NB (and thus the L3 cache) can improve system performance more than faster RAM ever will. :-)

All the energy you feed your CPU with is turned into heat. Lowering the voltage always decreases the strain on both the motherboard & CPU.
