Smart Choice... I have settled for 9x 425FSB using my Q9650 at 3825MHz. Mem at 850 5-5-5-15 2.0v. If overclocking much higher I have to take out one memstick to keep stability. If I remove one memstick I can also run the mem at 2.4x 430FSB = 1033MHz. But when using all 4 sticks, as I've said, must use 1:1 mem:FSB and cannot go much past 850MHz mem frequency..

And have tested two different 4x2GB sets... So this makes me believe this motherboard have issues with many kinds of 4x2GB configurations when overclocking.. Have searched google and found other people with issues. Also, both of my 4x2GB mem sets are on the Qualified list for this motherboard. Listed as it should work in dual channel with all 4 sticks. And they do. Just not overclocking well, when compared to other motherboards.

Use 2 or 3 sticks and they overclock very well. In my case it is fine, as 3.825GHz is a very nice 24/7 setting for my Q9650. And there is little performance difference between running mem at 1:1 850 vs 2.4x FSB 1020. So I'm happy. And as I've said, If I wanna overclock higher, I just remove one stick.

First if you allready have run Prime95 LARGE FFT test with those settings and lower multi there`s no point of doing it again just becouse yo want to run higher 9x 450MHz multi vs 8.5x in your revious OC..

YOUR 450MHz FSB OC IS SOLID!!!!

You`ve got BSOD becouse of low Vcore as in games and light load apps Load Line Calibration doesn`t kick in and you actually don`t run the same Vcore like in Intel Burn Test Load..

I had the same issue as my OC was P95 & IBT stable but I crashed in games and co..

Set your LOAD Vcore from IBT to be your IDLE Vcore for 24/7 usage and you`ll be just fine.. (just upp it for a 3 or 4 notches =0.02V)..

CHEERS..

KingT,

Do not forget that he is using 8GB RAM. This can, as you know from my woes, lead to very erratic behaviour. I was Rock solid in one moment, and in the next moment I suddenly lost my stability.. I would go as far as to say that your testing rules do not apply as well for these motherboards when using 4x2GB mem...

There is something going on with the FSB strap when overclocking with 4x2GB RAM, when going much past 430FSB +... So again, you could be rock solid in one moment, using all kinds of testing, however, after a reboot that stability could be lost again. This does not apply when using 3x2GB or 2x2GB. And I'm pretty sure it does not apply when using 2x2GB + 2x1GB, or 4x1GB.

epsillon777 have allready said that he wa stable with those settings and 8.5x 450MHz FSB in 20h of P95 but unstable with his current 9x OC (4GHz)..

So in my book he needs more Vcore as LLC doesn`t kick in in games like it does in P95 and IBT so he is running lower Vcore in light load apps then he does in IBT (LLC upps Vcore more under heavy load thn it does in games and co)..

I had the same issue..

That`s why I`ve set my IBT LOAD Vcore to be my 24/7 IDLE Vcore and I never hd a BSOD since (it was over a year ago)..

CHEERS..

I agree that you should set you Vcore according to lowest v-drop in IBT. And it may be he only needed more vcore. However, you cannot ignore my facts when using 4x2GB RAM in these boards... If he is stable at 450FSB that is fine. But in my experience that stability could suddenly be lost again, after a reboot. As I've stated earlier, there is something going on with the FSB strap when overclocking with 4x2GB mem, at least past 430FSB..

If you pass 20h of P95 LARGE FFT with 6x multi (like epsilon777 have) there`s no way your FSB OC could be unstable regardless of amount of RAM you`ve been using..

If your system has any issue with RAM,NB,vFSB or GTL you will get errors or crash in P95 LARGE FFT..

When I tried to run my RAM @ 1066MHz on this mobo (unsuccessful) I could even pass memtest v.4.0 Windows ver. but I would fail (error) in P95 LARGE FFT within 30 min..

That`s how sensitive P95 is on about everything in your system..

That`s why I recommend it to everyone who is FSB OCing for at least 6h..

CHEERS..

You have clearly not been reading my experiences... I was perfectly stable at 9x 435FSB using 4x 2GB RAM. Tested Prime95 Large FFT's for at least 10 hours, Blend, IBT for at least 30 rounds, memtest for windows with atleast 4 passes... Was Rock solid! Then after a reboot, Windows would not boot again! I have recreated this scenario! As I've said, there is something going on with the FSB strap when overclocking with 4x2GB RAM. If I took out one stick this erratic behaviour did not occur again! And I've tested with two different 4x2GB sets.

You should try 4x2GB yourself, I know you have tried 2x2 + 2x1GB, it's not the same.

I`ve red your experience..

But in this case epsilon777 boots to OS and can do some work,play games but BSOD`s..

And he hasn`t got BSOD when running with 8.5x multi and 450MHz FSB so to me doesn`t seem like problem that you had..

And on top of all that you`re running Quad which stresses more NB than C2Duo..

CHEERS..

KingT,

As I've said, If it works for him, after several reboots that's fine. However if he suddenly loose stability we know what could be causing it.

And yes, he has a Dual core, that could make all the difference. My point is that no matter how much you stability test, stability could suddenly be lost after a reboot or a powerdown, when using my scenario.

My scenario is a Motherboard 'bug' when using 4x2GB RAM and past 430FSB+. At least when using my Q9650.
