I think it's better to just sit on these socket 775 setups until I upgrade to another socket.. That will probably not be in the near future... I'm also waiting for my m-ATX motherboard to arrive.. So if I also bought this Deluxe, that would be a little over the top in my opinion..

I've actually managed to find P5Q Deluxe for 225 Euros in stock (highly overpriced as it's LGA 775 an costed less when it has been lounched in 2008)..

Plain P5Q costs here 146 Euros (also in stock as nobody will pay that money for low end 775 mobo)..

So actually 120 Euros for Deluxe is quite good comparing to prices available to me here..

Here in Norway, electronics... computers, TV's and stuff like that is really cheap. However, most other things is expensive..

However, old stuff like socket 775 motherboards and CPUs uasually is overpriced here too. So a little surprised that this Deluxe board had a very nice price. It is still pointless for me to upgrade...

If I've found a new P5Q Deluxe for 120Euros I would have bought it just for fun to see what's it made of..

Have done some more testing using my 4x2GB Crucial Ballistix...

As I've said before, 3.825GHz (9x 425FSB) is rock solid with 8GB RAM. However, when I tried to down RAM Voltage from 2.0 Volts to 1.94 the system froze instantly in memtest for Windows. This is very strange because this RAM is rated to work at 1000MHz 5-5-5-15 2.0v and 800MHz 4-4-4-12 2.0v. So one would assume it would be fine at 850MHz 5-5-5-15 1.94 volts.

However, I downed the Volts to 1.86v now, and memtest is humming along fine. So 2 volts was fine, not 1.94 but 1.86v seems fine. As I've said before, this board with 8GB RAM is strange...

I also tried 8.5x 460FSB. At these speeds memtest froze instantly at 2.0 volts and upwards... However, when running at 1.94 volts memtest did not freeze instantly. Prime95 Large FFTs froze the system instantly, no matter what setting I tried. And of course, 2nd ROW memtimings was one notch up when testing past the stable 425FSB.

Looks like a lot of issues with your setup unfortunately..

This board is notorious when using 8GB RAM. Really I do not have any issues when using my stable 8GB RAM settings. Or when I take out one RAM stick.

Only issue is strange and unlogic behaviour when overclocking with 8GB RAM. Pretty unlogic that 1.86v and 2.0v is fine at 850MHz, but not 1.94v.. lol

I am stable at 9x 425FSB, 8GB RAM, 2n Row settings Auto and everything else optimized for performance. I was just testing if I could get past using lower Volts on RAM. 1.86 seems fine. Have been using 2.0 volts earlier.

This behaviour makes me wanna try higher FSB with 8GB RAM and try those 2nd. ROW timings at auto and just experiment with RAM Volts...
