I hope someone else can come up with a better solution.
Hi Taz_Man, not sure if they have the answer to your question there... but check out the link below to ASUS support page for P5Q PRO Turbo:

ASUS Support Site Link

Also, I found that the downloads over there are direct links (No need to type in letters and numbers)

Hope this helps...

Hello Gents,

Got interested in OC when I bought a second GTX 280 to complement my system. I was running everything at stock speeds on auto and was disappointed to find no performance increase while gaming when I installed that second GPU.

So on to overclocking:

Got the system to 4.28 with ram at 1066 1:1, unfortunately it does nat pass P95 blend tests (errors out in 7 mins "rounding was 0.5 expecting less than 0.4). Did small FFT's for 30 mins and large FFT's errors out after 17 mins.

Can somebody point me in the right direction to get P95 somewhat stable?

Thanks in advance

Hi Micma, welcome to OCN and welcome aboard!!!

Not sure for the no increase in video performance... Have you benchmarked to be certain about that?

As for your E8400 E0, in the BIOS:

Try set FSB Strap to North Bridge to AUTO.

Try set both AI Clock Twister and AI Transaction Booster to AUTO.

Try lowering the NB voltage as 1.4V seems high.

Try set CPU PLL to 0.63x. (mid-range)

Try bumping up the VCore. (whenever failing Prime95 stress test)

1.4V VCore is the max safe limit for running 24/7 and stress testing


Please feel free to check out the 1st page for related resource for the mobo (post #1 and post #2).

Happy overclocking!!!

As for your E8400 E0, in the BIOS:

Try set FSB Strap to North Bridge to AUTO.

Try set both AI Clock Twister and AI Transaction Booster to AUTO.

Try lowering the NB voltage as 1.4V seems high.

Try set CPU PLL to 0.63x. (mid-range)

Try bumping up the VCore. (whenever failing Prime95 stress test)

1.4V VCore is the max safe limit for running 24/7 and stress testing


Please feel free to check out the 1st page for related resource for the mobo (post #1 and post #2).

Happy overclocking!!!
I just play BFBC2 and there was no performance gain in FPS

I tried your suggestions and had to quickly revert to my template. My graphic cards weren't detected with those settings applied.

Thanks
Sandy

If that's the case... try just bump up VCore until Prime95 stress test stable. (1.4V is max)

Also, I found that the downloads over there are direct links (No need to type in letters and numbers)

Hope this helps...
They don't have anything over there about the Mouse being disabled & the downloads won't help any since the mouse is useless.

So on to overclocking:

Got the system to 4.28 with ram at 1066 1:1, unfortunately it does nat pass P95 blend tests (errors out in 7 mins "rounding was 0.5 expecting less than 0.4). Did small FFT's for 30 mins and large FFT's errors out after 17 mins.

Can somebody point me in the right direction to get P95 somewhat stable?

Thanks in advance
Otherwise looking pretty good.. but your fsb freq is so high that you won't get that fixed only by upping vcore..
Faster failure on Blend i guess tells that your ram ain't stable.. there has been problems with 1066mhz ram with Pro Turbo if i remember right.

I had a E8500 running with 513x8.. to get it stable i had to play with Cpu PLL voltage,Fsb term. Voltage, Nb voltage & Cpu Gtl ref.. it took a week of testing

You really should use KingT's method found in this thread to get your board stable with that high fsb before starting to play with vcore.

I needed 1.58v for Cpu PLL to get it stable fsb @ 513. Fsb Term.Volt @ 1.3.
NB voltage seems a bit high for me too.. I only needed 1.28-1.32v and gtl ref 0.63x or 0.65x.

E8500 wasn't enought for BFBC2 with my gtx 570.. even @ 4.1Ghz+.
it really needs quad core to run better, since it uses alot of cpu power.
I play it too so that's a big reason i upgraded to quad-core.

Hey guys, when I upgraded my system with the P5Q Pro Turbo I also replace my 4x1Gb modules of Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X2048-6400C4 Ram I'd been running with a G.SKILL-F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK set.

Every performance test I ran looked low to me for the speeds & timings they were running, so I did a comparison test & swapped out the G.Skill with my old Corsair Ram with the exact same timings & speed & tested again.

Much to my amazement the Corsair scores soared over the G.Skill BIG-TIME with the exact same settings!!!
So this makes me think there's something wrong with the set I got.
What's weird though is when I run diagnostics on them they report back fine with no errors of any kind.

Here's the pics of Everest Cache-Memory Benchmark running the G.Skill & the Corsair Ram in pics below.
Tell me what you think about this & get back to me as to why this is...weird that my Corsair DDR2-6400 wipes out the G.Skill DDR2-1066...
Is this normal performance for G.Skill 1066 Ram???
I don't thinks so...

Anyways, until I can get a replacement set (2x2Gbs instead of 4x1Gbs modules) I'm going to keep running my old Ram for the performance.
Seems stupid to have the rest of the system in high gear & the Ram in 1rst gear!

G.SKILL-F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK- Left Picture Benchmark results.

Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X2048-6400C4- Right Picture Benchmark results.

@ MUff1N

To me it looks like results are flawed as the latency on both tests is pretty much identical but the Read/Write/Copy is differnt..

Try to redo the tests and/or rinstall Everest..

CHEERS..
