My box is running prime now for some hours, after that I'll try to tweak that ram or the NB.
No, i dont have any problems,i can bench at 4.3ghz on my 965,and 4.2ghz on my 955,mind you,i have been in this game for 35 years,that shows my age,LOL!!!

Thank you mate, i did find some settings i will give a try there. They are the following
Set CPU NB Voltage to {1.3 volts}
Set DRAM Voltage to {1.65 volts}

Set DRAM Timings to CL 7-7-7-20 (CL-TRCD-TRP-TRAS)
Set tRFC to {88 Clocks}
Set DRAM Timing Mode to {Both}
Set DRAM Advance Control to {Both}
Set 1T/2T Command Mode to {2T}
Set Spread Spectrum to {Disabled}

But i have a couple of MOBO questions regarding the settings. I went into bios to fill in the above settings and ran into two problems.

it says to set tRFC to 88 clocks - in bios i see tRFC 0 tRFC 1 tRFC 2 tRFC 3 when i click on it i think it gives a short list starting with 90ns i believe. Am i looking in the wrong place or is there another setting i should try for those?

second question regarding DRAM voltage and the CPU NB Voltage - They are set to auto and letters are gray instead of white. They seem to be locked. I understand using the arrows to change them but nothing happens. Is there another setting i need to enable to gain access to those settings.
Thanks again for your help you guys are great.

I think that you don't need to use exactly these settings in order to test your system at default specs.

Set the dram voltage using the "+" key.

Set basic DRAM timings to 7-7-7-20 (CL-TRCD-TRP-TRAS)

Disable spread spectrum.

At least for initial testing, leave the nb voltage at auto.

First,88 clocks equates to 110ns,so change TRFC0-TRFC3 to 110ns,as for dram voltage and cpu-nb voltage,as i said before,just highlite and change with + & - keys,they are used to change all bios settings.

PS you should also set "bank interleaving" to disabled.

You keep reffering to NB voltage,your confusing him,NB voltage is the voltage supplied to the 790 chipset,CPU-NB is the voltage supplied to the IMC.

Okay Tried setting bios with minimal settings as Crisao23 suggested. I experienced immediate errors running memtest.

I reset and changed bios to the following settings
Set DRAM Timings to CL 7-7-7-20 (CL-TRCD-TRP-TRAS)
Set tRFC to {88 Clocks}
Set DRAM Timing Mode to {Both}
Set DRAM Advance Control to {Both}
Set 1T/2T Command Mode to {2T}
Set Spread Spectrum to {Disabled}

I first tested 1 stick of memory up to 100% with no errors
I then tested 2 sticks of memory up to about 70% when i experienced errors. I can at least run two sticks now without constant blue screen so we must be on the right track.

What would you suggest i try next? I am not an expert by any means but i keep thinking possibly voltage but not sure.

Are they running on the recommended voltage ?

Moorhen2,

System's been under prime95 for more than seven hours now, I think that it's stable. I know that it isn't a 4.3Ghz system like yours but it's going strong considering my ambient temperature

Check it out:

Running Seven x64.



I need to work on the memory bandwidth, maybe you and Mastiff can help me tweak it

How is the latest bios....i found that a lot of the bios's I used after 1.9V need more voltage to get stable at 4.0
