I though perhaps something was wrong with the hard drive and windows 7 not adapting to the new motherboard correctly. So i reinstalled windows 7 and it still continues to randomly freeze. Every time it does, i have no USB power as well, so i was wondering if any one else had the same problem?

Im thinking perhaps its the bios and might need to do a flash on it?

Regards
Thanks for people for replying.

Ocman i have added my system details, yes my ram is compatible with motherboard and i think i have already tried to load factory default settings in the BIOS with no success.

DRAM RAS# Precharge: 5
DRAM RAS# Activate to Precharge: 15
RAS# to RAS# Delay : AUTO

turrican9 : i triedwhat you recommend to do with the memory but it was already set like that, i am running out of ideas.

Kind Regards,

I have a friend who has a QX9650 on a Asus X48 board. He says that it is infact faster if you go for the lowest possible Performance Level at 400FSB instead of higher FSB and a higher PL. He could run it at 400FSB x10 at PL=7. He also said he should be able to do this at PL=6 at this FSB speed, and he can do that at lower CPU speeds at 400FSB. But due to some chipset limitation/bug on his motherboard he has to drop it to PL= 7 on 4GHz.

He also pointed me to this article Overclocking Intel's New 45nm QX9650: The Rules Have Changed

Good luck! Nice chip you got there!

Back to trying my 8GB Geil Black Dragon kit in my Turbo. From previous attempts I had the impression that they simply work better with the P5Q Pro Turbo when 4x2GB than the Crucial Ballistix 4x2GB do. And what I have found is that these Geil chips do not like 2.0 Volts when using 8GB, like the Ballistix does in this board. So by using 1.9 Volts on these Geil chips they seem to do well at 445FSB x9 and 1:1 now!

And the funny thing is also that my Gigabyte GA-P35 DS3R just loves my Crucial Ballistix when using 8GB. They can do 1050MHz+ when using 4x2GB.

There are many OC settings posted on this Club by me for 450MHz FSB for Q9550/Q9650 so you could use them for QX9650 as well..

Your mobo has advanced CPU GTL voltage options in BIOS so you would be able to go even beyond that 450MHz FSB mark easily..

Now QX9650 makes OCing easier but downside of that CPU is lower Tjmax 90C and they usually (both C0 & C1 steppings) require more Vcore,run hotter and OC a bit worse than Q9550 and Q9650 E0 stepping..

QX9650's tend to be a Vcore hungry chips..

But on that board and with a proper cooling 4GHz is guaranteed..

CHEERS..

I've been checking out my older posts from christmas times and past that. Looked at what settings I did try when testing my Geil Black Dragon 8GB Kit... Turns out I did a few misstakes..

First misstake was this in combination with 1.9 Volts:

http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...l#post11807129


DRAM Static Read Control: Enabled
DRAM Read Training: AUTO
MEM. OC Charger: AUTO
AI Clock Twister: Strong
AI Transaction Booster: Manual
Common Performance Level [10]
Pull-In of CHA PH1: ENABLED
Pull-In of CHA PH2: ENABLED
Pull-In of CHA PH3: ENABLED
Pull-In of CHA PH4: ENABLED
Pull-In of CHB PH1: ENABLED
Pull-In of CHB PH2: ENABLED
Pull-In of CHB PH3: ENABLED
Pull-In of CHB PH4: ENABLED



Later on I did the misstake of only trying 2.0 Volts while trying to relax all other settings:

http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...l#post11843375






Turns out they hate 2.0 Volts. And by using 1.9 volts with these settings they seem fine at overclocked settings:

CAS# Latency: 5
DRAM RAS# to CAS# Delay: 5
DRAM RAS# Precharge: 5
DRAM RAS# Activate to Precharge: 18
RAS# to RAS# Delay : AUTO
Row Refresh Cycle Time: 65
Write Recovery Time: AUTO
Read to Precharge Time: AUTO

2nd Information : All at Auto


3rd Information :

WRITE to PRE Delay: AUTO
READ to PRE Delay: AUTO
PRE to PRE Delay: AUTO
ALL PRE to ACT Delay: AUTO
ALL PRE to REF Delay: AUTO
DRAM Static Read Control: Disabled
DRAM Read Training: Disabled
MEM. OC Charger: Enabled
AI Clock Twister: Lighter
AI Transaction Booster: Manual
Common Performance Level [10]
All Pullins Disabled


Have not pinned down what excact setting caused the most problems yet, but these settings seem fine at 445FSB x9 1:1 ratio. This is using 8GB. Have even turned computer off (Turned off PSU) and booted, to check if stability would stick.

So I was unlucky when trying out combinations with my 8GB Geil Black Dragon Kit. And as I've said, turns out my P5Q Pro Turbo overclocks very nicely with these VS Ballistix 4x2GB...

It's not worth the effort man..

Take out two RAM sticks and enjoy your rig's stability and OC ability..

It is worth it now. It overclocks the same using 8GB Geil Black Dragon VS 2x2GB Crucial Ballistix. As I've said, P5Q Pro Turbo simply likes my Geil mem better when using 8GB. And as you see in my last post, I've found the culprit with these Geil chips.

Great,let me know when your RAM usage goes over 4GB in everyday usage and gaming and then I will call it worth it..
