Yes i have done this, please see the first post. i have described all the options that i have disabled or enabled etc there.

Thanks,

Plus if you google the board there are lot and lot of people with same problems.
you just must not have much experience with the nvidia chipsets, but i would say if you had that much problems then it would be because your cpu is not G0 stepping, although i could be wrong, and you have a bad batch, it happens.

like i said the board is decent (i.e. alright) for oc, not terrible, not good, just decent.

your experience with it is rare, and asus strikers have always been quirky, and i like quirky. you may not and should have gotten a EVGA model, but im not going to play the shudda game being off topic in a thread.

How about this: My Crucial Ballistix (2x1GB) are 1066 units, but in BIOS, they default at 800...Also, what would be safe voltages for the E8400 for running around 3.8Ghz, and memory at ~1200Mhz?
Oh, and I need a NB fan...
no response...

must be something going on here

thanks tho
Alright on your way home if you can afford to, drop into a pc store and grab a 70mm fan or something so you can cool your NB because these boards do get hot under overclock, but i doubt you will need it.

I would just have it just in-case, also worth noting a desk fan will do if you cant get one on your way home from work.

Intel-Junkie:

I have just done as you suggested. it did not post, heres what i found/did:

Disabled the internal temp jobby
Memory Mode: unlinked
Memory Clock: 800mhz / also tried SLI-Ready on Expert mode = 1066mhz
FSB Clock: 1066mhz

Posts fine

Vcore increase to 1.50
bios now reports Vcore at 1.45V - Close??
Post fine, but quite a delay between posting the "Main Processor" line and the "CPU Brand Name" line (which details what your processor is actually running at).

FSB increase to 1100 and it wont post:
**** Warning: System BOOT Fail ****
Your last system boot fail or post interrupted
Please enter setup to load default and reboot again.

FSB increase to 1150: same again

FSB increase to 1200: same again...

i stopped there. Can't imagine a FSB hole that big...surely?

Thoughts?

(thanks for all your time btw)

Oh and also RE the NB Fan.

I do have a 240mm fan that i usually have blowing against the mobo. Its not actually plugged in right now, i shall sort that out. But i did check my temps.

At the end of attempt detailed in my previous posting my temps were
NB @ ~65
CPU @ ~42

I will sort a fan out, just for piece of mind. but i think those temps are acceptable... Unless im wrong??

Cheers,

Andy

ok dude now turn on load line calibration and say if that helps, turn on virtualisation and manually set your ram for 0.1v higher than specification, loosen your timings and try to run in linked mode with a fsb of 1100.

report back and we can keep going.

VCORE = 1.5V
MEM = 2.16V
FSB = 1100
MEM CLK = 800

1. Loadline Calibration - enabled = NO CHANGE
2. Virtualisation - enabled = NO CHANGE
3. MEM Voltage - 2.18V (spec is 2.15V) = NO CHANGE (but Mem CLK was set to 800 anyway)
4. Mem Timings - 6.6.6.16.2t (spec is 5.5.5.15.2t) = NO CHANGE (but Mem CLK is still set to 800 anyway)

Oh and also Temps after all that:

CPU = 53
MB = 42
NB = 74
SB = 72

Voltages
Vcore = 1.48
Memory = 2.18
1.2V HT Voltage = 1.21V
NB - 1.29
SB - 1.50
CPU PLL = 1.52
CPU VTT = 1.20
DDR2 Termination voltage = 1.07
3.3V = 3.26
5V = 5.24
12V = 11.84V

Thanks,

Have you checked the ASUS forums to see if anyone is having trouble with that BIOS?iirc when I had my P5 N32-e sli plus there was a bIOS update that was released that caused a whole host of problems

SOLVED

my bios just must have been scrambled. I noticed that using the CMOS reset on the back didn't reset the time and date, so i decided to completely remove the CMOS battery and disconnect the computer from the mains. Left it like that for 15minutes (excessive i know, but i actually got distracted)... hey presto.

First thing i notice is the CPU is coming up as 1.5ghz... okay, increased the multiplier set the RAM to sync mode and first time, 2.4Ghz at 533Mhz ram....

the bios even tightened the ram timings for me 4-4-4-12 1T...

i have no increased the FSB to 1333, RAM synced at 667mhz, timings 5-5-5-15-1t

windows didnt boot.

however, i mate sent me his voltage settings (same mobo and cpu) just fired some of those settings in and windows is now booting

Cpu Voltage = Auto
PLL = auto
VTT = 1.4
NB = 1.44
CPU GTL_REF = +50mv
NB GTL_REF = +30mv

now time for burning test and working back those volts

Any suggestions? Otherwise, thank you all especially Intel-Junkie for all your help and time.

Thanks

Andy

I noticed your POST says "single channel mode". You must not have your memory in the right slots, and that may be some of your problem. Check the mobo manual and get one in channel A and the other in channel B where it belongs.

If it's still not happy, unlink your memory and bump it down so it's around 800. Then continue pushing FSB. Memory is often the hangup on 775 boards depending on the combo, despite the rating I've found alot of memory that won't run it's rated speed on different 775 boards.

I wouldn't recommend using "auto" voltage or memory timing settings. Get your memory in the correct slots so it's dual channel mode, set the speed and timings manually, and we can get back to tweaking your mobo
