i read even 6gb is in some cases better for oc on this mobo than 8gb...
8GB and even 6GB of RAM is overkill nowdays for everyting except for 3D design where you need as much RAM as you can get..

4GB sits just perfect..

CHEERS..

Except also for us music makers. Its nice to have 8 gigs so you can load a whole orchestra or grand piano or drum set into memory for low latency....

I ended up between 4 and 8GB. 6GB. However, this was only to give me some piece of mind. I could never forget my failures trying to overclock the P5Q Pro Turbo with 8GB RAM.

I tried again and again. It was almost driving me crazy. After I got 6GB i settled down. However, for gaming and regular use 4GB is enough, just as KingT says.. And it overclocks very nice using 4GB RAM.

If overclocking with 8GB you could try this,

2nd Information :

READ to WRITE Delay (S/D): AUTO
Write to Read Delay (S): AUTO
WRITE to READ Delay (D): AUTO
READ to READ Delay (S): 5
READ to READ Delay (D): 7

WRITE to WRITE Delay (S): AUTO
WRITE to WRITE Delay (D): AUTO


Mind you, mem bandwith will drop a good deal.

I am thinking of ditching windows xp sp3 and installing windows 7 sp1 64 bit. If I do that, does windows 7 already have the asus p5q pro turbo chipset drivers in it, or do I have to download them from asus and install them after I install windows 7?

Thanks...

You will need to install the latest drivers.

I keep all the drivers for my board on a flash drive, makes it easier.

You won't need to load a Raid driver or anything during installation, they are built into Windows 7. However, you should eventually update all your drivers.

Hey guys. You wouldn't believe the bad luck I've been having with these boards I've been getting. So far I still haven't gotten a working one yet

I think I dealt with 2 different MFG Refurbished that had problems & then I found a New, Open Box one that I just got today, except when I opened it instead of there being a P5Q Deluxe there was a P5Q-E

I can't seem to find anything available now. I'm not buying a Used one. I don't understand why the heck no one is making any good 775 boards still with so many users still out there. ASUS doesn't even make a good 775 board anymore do they?
