Thread Starter 
Having a issue running 4 sticks in this board anyone else had luck with this? The modules are Corsair XMS2 in my sig and haven't really put much into it just wondering? They are 2x1GB and 2x512 sticks wondering if that means anything. I have tested all sticks so I know one is not bad maybe more NB voltage possibly?

I'm having the same problem as Rick there - I have the OCZ Reaper Series - 2GB sticks - 4 of them = a total memory of 8 GB - http://www.ocztechnology.com/product...er_hpc_edition

I can get the board up and running with 1 2GB stick in ANY of the four slots but from the minute i add another module in dual channel or any other mode - the board boots but my 64 bit Vista refuses to load or allow me to re-install

Steps taken

1. I upped the voltage from the standard 1.85 to 2.1 - no change - still freezes

2. I tried all 4 sticks - tested all - all work - they are recognised in the bios but Vista doesn't load
a. 2 GB - Slot1
b. 2 GB - Slot2
c. 2 GB - Slot3
d. 2 GB - Slot4
e. 2 GB - Slot1 and 3 = 4GB
f. 2 GB - Slot2 and 4 = 4GB
g. 2 GB - Slot 1-4 = 8GB

3. I tried doing a POST test to verify memory - noticed that it reads up to 3072MB and then pauses for 2 sec and then verifies the rest.

4. Tried re-installing Vista with 4GB/6GB/8GB of memory (dual channel) - installation freezes at random points (which makes me believe it's memory - but from step 2 all seem to be ok)

5. Tried Upgrading the BIOS but it continuously says - CMOS checksum bad - but the BIOS date is what it's supposed to be

Does my by board need to be RMA? or am i doing something wrong?

Can you all please help? Thanks

PS - Running an E7500 - GTS 250 - 1 TB HD - 650w PSU

Hi,
mind if I join you old salts?
I am an utter noob and proved such with my epic fail at my first attempt at overclocking the other day. Lets just say I couldn't even get the auto clock to not crash whilst playing LOTRO.

Hopefully all my specs are in my sig thing and as you can see I am more stock than an OXO cube.
I am hoping to change that it the not to distant future.

P.S. I am a spreadsheetaholic.

Hey man, I'm new to this club as well but maybe I can help.

First thing you should do is switch all voltages from manual to the lowest possible for stock settings. Make sure you stress test everything at stock to make sure its stable and the heat is okay.

Than you can OC!

Thanks Big I will do that.

I have already done a couple of runs on P95 with my max temp being 43C on max load so I think the Titan is doing its job well.
That's 43C with all my case fans set to low.

A friend also recommended that I changed all RAM timings to the manual value as well.

I am half way through a spreadsheet that replicates the BIOS and its possible settings this way I can keep track of all the settings and my changes for future OC's, did I mention I am a spreadsheetaholic

I have been going through a couple of guides and trying to find out what is what and think I have an idea of the basics and am hoping to pick up the rest here.

Yea man, the I45 is great in that there really isn't that much you have to change until you go for a CRAZY O.C.


All I have done for my Q9550 to get to 3.83 is:

vcore +.05
Dram +.1
NB +.1
FSB +.1
MCH GTL REF *.64 (This one was huge... was stuck at 3.1 and this alone let me go to 3.83 without changing anything else.)

Set my ram to 1:1 with manufacturers timings and thats it.

Nice work yea that .64 GTL will really get you at 450+mhz FSB, it is almost impossible to get it to not fry the bios when you leave it auto.

Just edited and updated the member list please check to see if your info is correct and ragzinc whats your full specs?

I really need to update and complete this thread I apologize been very busy.

No worries now I bricked my BIOS should have some time....

Anyone know a fix for a corrupted BIOS it gives me a E9 code I think it flashed everytime I enable the manual OC settings. I here flashing this board is ridiculous anyone account for this? This is what I get for pushing 450FSB at my E2140 LOL not sure why or what caused this. I here this board corrupts OS and lucky that hasn't happened. Do all my big runs on another HDD for safe measure.

Updated first and second post with a few things.

two things, .64 gtl isn't even an option in my bios, the lowest I believe I have is .68...my bios is the newest bios though, and I do remember the old shipping bios I had with the board had .66 or some other lower number I can't recall what exactly...however it seems my luck has been better with the board since updating to newest bios and windows 7...generally speaking from my experience it seems unless you really do something repeatedly stupid this board is actually fairly kind to your OS for I had xp on it for months and I threw all kinds of settings at it all the way up to 5 ghz suicide pi runs...and it was fine till I got windows 7 and it finally did refuse to start after I tried a crazy suicide run, but generally speaking it seems a fairly stable board, just my experience though...oh, and that e2000 series processor you got...it may be fun to push it to the hilt, but get an e8000 series processor...otherwise you're seriously bottlenecking this boards' capability, again just my 2 cents. I saw you had an i7 build coming soon, which I admit I'd love to do myself, but especially seeing you haven't done that yet, I'd buy a good e0 and put it in this board and you'd be amazed at what you can do with it, just on air I had 600+ fsb stable and 4.55 ghz linpack stable with a true on it. Not trying to discourage your e2000 feats which I see you've done or discourage a new build, just to me seems a shame not to push the tpower plus you'd only need a processor to upgrade, whereas the i7/5 path you need all new components from the board up.

Thanks for the info m8 I actually had a E8400 C0 chip while ago on this board and got it to 4.0ghz stable 24/7 and 4.41ghz bench with my TRUE120. Wish I still had it to test with the modded H50.
