That's nice..

On this P5Q Pro I never managed to get pass 1040MHz with these HyperX using straps and 1050MHz 1:1 @ 525MHz FSB(this is 1066MHz RAM)..

I have run this P5Q Pro/E8400 @ 560MHz FSB and Kingston PC9200 2x1GB (1150MHz RAM) @ 1120MHz back in the winter 2008/2009..

On Gigabyte EP45-Extreme and UD3P my current HyperX 2x2GB 1066MHz RAM has ran @ 1150MHz 2.25V without any issues..

Well that's my story..

CHEERS..

Update

Instead of having the 2x2GB sticks in the yellow slots and the 2x1GB sticks in the black slots, i switched them. 2x1GB sticks are now in the yellow slots.

Now I'm actually able to run memtest for Windows with 6GB RAM at 1080MHz. Also had to up PL from 8 to 9. Looking good!

With my combo I feel lucky when my system manages to boot to OS with this RAM @ 1080MHz.. and then processes start to crash like firewall,explorer and eventually I end up with a BSOD..

I guess this is what you get from a earlyP45 A2 revision Northbridge chip..

Yeah...

I have tested 2x2GB Rock stable at 1080MHz 5-5-5-15, PL8

But now it is looking good with 2x1GB + 2x2GB 5-5-5-15, PL9. Memtest is humming along nicely... Four sessions of memtest, each with 1250MB, for a total of 5GB.

My next shot will be 460FSB x9 and RAM at 1104. That will probably give me a good CPU Physics score in 3DMark11.. Have not yet tested the Performance drop going from PL8 to PL9. It is most likely very small. As long as RAM are running same speed.

Switching those sticks made a world of difference for me, when overclocking. When the 2x2GB sticks where in the yellow slots memtest would freeze pretty quick. No matter setting.

I have read somewhere that you should always put the better clocking sticks in the memslots closest to CPU. I just assumed my 2x1GB sticks would overclock better than my 2x2GB sticks. And just tried it.

However, they are not in the two slots closest to the CPU, they are in the yellow slots. Two closest would be one yellow and one black.

I imagine it is best to run same capacity sticks in same colour slots, for best Dual Channel compatability.

Yeah I know and that's why I said that..

I have bought my P5Q Pro in Sept. 2008 and P45 was introduced in June..

Later mobos got A3 rev NB (like P5Q Pro TURBO or EP45-UD3P) and better,more mature BIOS..

CHEERS..

Well,

1080MHz@6GB RAM was fine in Memtest for Windows and a few 3DMark11 runs, but computer rebooted as soon as IBT started to load CPU. So if going these speeds I have to use 2 memsticks.

Still, I'm not hindered overclocking my CPU, like I was with 4x2GB RAM. So very happy. I know 4GB would have been enough RAM, but I just could not forget my 8GB, so to compensate my loss I just installed those two extra 2x1GB sticks, for a total of 6GB. Feeling much better and more happy now.

So will probably stick with 4.05GHz (1.32v IBT Load), mem at 900MHz 5-5-5-15-1.94v (2.02v due to Mobo overvolting 0.08v. Not tried lower) or 4-4-4-12-2.0v (If that works ok after I switched slots for those memsticks). NB is at 1.26v (Not tried lower). A nice 24/7 setting indeed.

However, 4GHz (445FSB x9) only requires 1.28v full load with IBT. And if mem at 900MHz 4-4-4-12 does not work well, it will probably work well at 890MHz 4-4-4-12... So... Time will show....

Also, when looking at IBT Gigaflops and 3DMark11 Physics scores it looks like mem at 900MHz 4-4-4-12 compares to at least 1050MHz + 5-5-5-15 results...

Edit: Running memtest for Windows now.. RAM at 900MHz 4-4-4-12-2.08v (should be 2.16v in this mobo).. Memsticks feels burning hot. Don't like it. They needed this much Volts for those tight timings when at 900MHz...

Update,

Seems 6GB was not stable at RAM 900MHz 4-4-4-12. Only 5-5-5-15

However, 890MHz 4-4-4-12-1.94v seems stable so far.

If so I think it's worth taking my CPU down from 4050MHz@1.32v Vcore IBT Load (450FSB x9) to 4005MHz@1.29v Vcore IBT Load (445FSB x9). Running cooler and a tad faster then at 4050MHz due to tighter RAM timings. Really, really nice 24/7 candidate setup.

I could run my RAM @ CL4 timings but I chose not to as I don't want to put unnecessary stress on my components (NB mostly)..

It's fast enough as it is and probably would last a bit longer..
