How's your Everest bandwidth? Also, I'd suspect that you could lower the DRAM voltage on that. I'm not sure about the P5Q, but I've seen some of these Asus boards overvolting RAM. Maybe if you have voltage monitors in your bios or even PC Probe or Everest, you could check what your actual voltage is.
I'm really just experimenting with the DRAM, FSB and NB voltages right now, to see if raising any of them will increase stability. Normally, I'd have the DRAM down at around 2.1v, +/- .4v, and the FSB and NB voltages at around 1.24 - 1.3v.
Currently, I have the FSB at 1.4, NB at 1.5 and DRAM at 2.2, and I was stable at FSB 441 with the RAM at 1059Mhz. I'm not comfortable with the voltages that high though, so they won't be that high permanently.
EDIT: @ 1066Mhz (haven't tested stability with these higher voltages yet, though I expect errors), Everest Cache and Memory Benchmark is as follows:
Memory: 8375MB/s - 9401MB/s - 9164MB/s - 64.2 ns (Read/Write/Copy/Latency)
The bandwidth at 1057Mhz is roughly 50-100 less on the Read/Write/Copy and about .1 ns more on Latency
Also, would you know where to look in Everest for the RAM voltage? I'm drawing a blank on finding it.
i have my PQ's running at 1066 on 2.06v right now. i think the highest i got them was ~1080 though. they dont oc too well, but i bought them knowing that.
What do you have your RAM settings at in your BIOS? Are those boxed as PC2-8000 or PC2-8500?Edited by jimbo6846 - 9/15/08 at 3:21pm
