DFI Lanparty DK P45-T2RS Plus Thread - Page 24

post #231 of 318
Hi, I just bought this board (DFI DK P45 T2RS PLUS) and want to update the bios to set up my Q9650 E0, someone could say what the best bios? and how to upgrade?

Greetings.

Same question: I bought a DFI P45-T2RS PLUS to replace my ASUS x48 Rampage Formula (for better overclocking, I'm stuck @ 4,33GHz with forceful stressing voltage levels). What's the best bios for my Q9650 E0?
post #233 of 318
I'm in the same boat except I'm trying to get my Q9550 to 4Ghz on my DFI JR P45-T2RS board. I am having trouble getting the system even to boot into windows at a FSB of 450.

Anyone have any ideas/bios help?

I'm using DDR2-1066 ram and the RAM tests perfectly at its rated speed without FSB overclock.

There are sooo many options in this bios...

Thanks!

Set the boot clock to something low like 350.

I don't really get the point of the boot clock. If the system crashes during booting, won't it definitely crash during a stress test?

Also, as an update. I was able to run at 4Ghz (471*8.5) stress tested for about an hour with no errors.

I am now working on a 500Mhz FSB. I am having trouble getting it stable though. I've been playing with settings all day. I would be happy to share Bios info or anything else if it would be beneficial?

Thanks!

Some P45's have a hard time with booting high FSBs. DFI's are no exception. My board could run 575 FSB Prime stable, but counld't use a boot clock over 400 FSB. That's why the boot clock setting is there for. You need to get everything removed from 'auto'.

Below I've marked some suggestions in red. Should get you started.

You'll have to play with the GTLs, every CPU is different. NB GTL will likely need to be set low. Most seem to end up with 0.58x or 0.61x.

You'll also want to play with the Fine Delay page. Ch1, Ch2, and RCOMP. Note: If you change the memory divider from 333/667 to 400/800 or vice versa, it can cause your Fine Delay to not be as stable.
Here's are some good combos to try. All these ran +500 FSB for me
2-2-1
7-7-1
0-0-2
1-1-2 This one worked best for me.
2-2-3
3-3-3
4-4-3
0-0-3

vNB, VTT, and vSB are ~-.05v what is set in BIOS when measured with a DMM. vDIMM is -.1v what is set in BIOS, so if your ram doesn't seem stable, but be scared to give it a bump.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for the detailed update PizzaMan!

I am currently playing around with the changes you mentioned and seeing what I can figure out! I will post back with results soon!

Quick question, when I disable vcore droop control does that put a lot of stress on the mobo? There is a heatsink installed on the MOSFETS and decent air flow.

Thanks again.


Update: The settings you provided have been working pretty well. I was able to boot and stress test at 500FSB without problem. It will need some more tweaking. I am using prime95 to stress test. I am currently using a 6x multi for stability.

Small FFTs ran error free for 20 min
Blend test core 0 failed after 12 min others went on to 20 min

---

I read up a little bit more on prime95. It looks as if small ffts tests only the CPU where as the blend tests the whole system. I changed my CPU gtl ref 0/2 from .67 to .63 and upped my vtt to 1.44v. Currently running a blend test already for 20 mins without error at 6x multi.

---

Trying to stress test 500 FSB at a 8.5 multi. cores 1/3 fail immediately (from a core scale from 0-3) while cores 0 and 3 run fine. I cannot change the CPU GTL REF 1/3 to anything other than .62x at these speeds otherwise the machine will not POST. I am about at my vcore voltage limit (1.45v) don't wanna go much higher. My VTT is at 1.5 with no change.

---

Been messing around with settings a bunch and cannot get cores 1/3 stable. I think this might be my wall. Trying lowering FSB now. After lowering FSB, core 1/3 still fail eventually, but now only one or the other.

You can't really trust P95 to tell you which core is failing. The cores are sharing the same cache and if you're testing FSB it's likely the cache level that's failing anyway.

Drop your multi lower and rule out vcore.

Looking through my book. ~500 FSB was when I had to test every possible Fine Delay combination until I had one that would scale.

disable vdroop!!

Hi there everyone this is my desperate 1st post . . . Yestarday I bought this MB
DFI LANPARTY DK P45-T2RS PLUS
2x Kingston KHX8500D2K2/4G - TOTAL 8GB PC 1066 2.3V
CPU Q9300 2.5 GHz

I've changed my MB because i could not make my memories work on 1066 . . .
I've managed to make them work on this MB at 1066 but only in single channel mode by disabling FLEX MEMORY . . . if i enable FLEX MEMORY bios detects them in dual channel but i get BSOD when starting windows 7 x64 . . .
I don't really want overclock i just want to make them work in dual chan and 1066
CPU FSB is set to 333MHz x 7.5
Tried putting manual timmings and it doesn't make any difference (5-5-5-15) from auto in CPUz timings are the same.

Seems like i can't make them work in 1066 . . . i play 5-10 mins then sistem freeze / crash . . . . i'm gonna try MEMTEST to see what i get
