You guys know pretty much everything about P5Q, nice.
Why does this boards often have issues with 1066 ram?
I used to have E8400(E0) and 2*2gb OCZ sli ready ram and 24/7 4.0GHz.
Then I sold my ram and bought 4*2gb that I have now and couldn't get more from 3.6. Now with my Q9550, I'm on 3.4. When I put my ram further than 800MHz, it gets unstable. I tried Ocman's step by step OC and managed to push my cpu to 4.0GHz (470fsb) and it passes every stress test along with Memtest but i gives me random bsod sometimes and sometimes freezes when on idle
How to get ram stable, I know that it's not up to cpu, it is somthing with mem controller and it's driving me crazy.
I supose that it could work, but my lack of OC knowledge is stopping me.
Here is validation of cpu, that I would like it to have on everyday use.
Difference between 3.4 and 4.0 may not be noticable for some but I pretty much feel difference when clipping video in Premiere. It goes much faster.
Belive it or not, on 8h work with faster cpu settings, I get almost 1h of bonus time.
Excuse me on bad english, I had pretty wild party last night, my brain is giving random bsods also

Yeah tell me about it,I have HyperX 1066 2x2GB and the highest I ever managed to be stable is 1020MHz (425MHz FSB)..

Now I'm on 471MHz FSB and RAM is @ 942MHz 5-5-5-15,1.9V..

But it's very rare that these mobos do 471MHz FSB with a Quad and be stable in P95 Large FFT..

So I recommend you to shoot for 3.8-3.9GHz..

FSB freq = 450MHz
DRAM TIMINGS=5-5-5-15
STRAP=AUTO
DRAM freq= 900MHz
DRAM STATIC READ CONTROL = DISABLED
DRAM READ TRAINING = DISABLED
OC charger=Enabled
AI Transaction booster=AUTO
8.5x CPU multiplier

Vcore=1.xxV (what Chip needs to hit 3.9GHz,add a bit if you crash)
CPU GTL = 0.63x
PLL=1.54
FSB voltage=1.30V
DRAM voltage=2.0V
NBv=1.34V
SBv=1.1V
PCIE/SATA voltage=1.50V
CPU & PCIE Spread spectrum=Disable
CPU & NB skew=AUTO

Load Line Calibration=ENABLED

All options in CPU Configuration set @ DISABLE and CPU MULTI @ 8.5x..

Testing methodology:

1. First test these with 6x multi with P95 LARGE FFT for at least 6h (12h is ideal) and stock Vcore as your CPU would be running @ 450x6=2.7GHz..

2. If you pass 6hrs of P95 Large FFT then reboot to BIOS upp your Vcore and set MULTI to 8.5x..

3. If it doesn't boot keep adding Vcore untill it does..

4. Then in Windows test 450MHz FSB x8,5 =3.85GHz with Intel Burn Test for 20runs w/ max RAM and if you crash then just up Vcore and test it again..

5. If you pass 6hrs of P95 LARGE FFT & 20 runs of IBT then you're ROCK SOLID..

KEEP YOUR CORE TEMPS UNDER 75C IN ANY STRESS TEST..


CHEERS..

I'm sorry to tell you this, but the ASUS P5Q PRO Turbo has serious issues with 4x2GB RAM...

I tried getting it stable for several months. Tried two different 8GB kits, both is on it's QVL list and overclocked nicely as long as I didn't use 4x2GB, but 2x2GB or 3x2GB.

Using 4x2GB, anything past 800MHz gave me trouble, no matter what settings I tried. Light overclocks past 800MHz would seem like they were fine, but suddenly after a coldboot or a reset, it could become unstable when stability testing.

I ended up buying a 2x1GB Kit and instead am using 2x2GB + 2x1GB = 6GB. This configuration overclocks nicely when 1:1 FSB:RAM.

I'm pretty sure that no matter what you try, you will never get 4x2GB stable much past 800Hz in this board.

5:6 FSB:RAM your only option is to go 2x2GB or lesser in this board.

So, if you wanna keep this board, need more than 4GB RAM and need to be overclocked you should try to find a 2x1GB Kit of the same brand you have and use a 6GB configuration.

Another option is to go 3x2GB. Just take out one RAM stick. This will give you Flexi Dual mode. You will loose a tad of mem performance. Still much better then Single Channel configuration.

Edit: You could try setting Perfomance Level to 11 and go 6-6-6-18 for mem, I doubt it will make things better though.

Just for fun I tried out your 8.5x 471FSB using 1.34vFSB x0.61GTL and Prime95 Large FFT's Custom 320KB - 320KB. Core1 crapped out after 2 minutes VS yours almost 2 hours.

This is just another statement that you have a very special CPU there.

Try out other combinations vFSB and GTL maybe you need to hit a sweet spot..

CHEERS..

Have tested this alot earlier. Tried many different combinations in my P5Q Pro Turbo. My experimenting with my Q9400 and Q9650 has shown that only by increasing vFSB more and more is helping when increasing FSB.

No, but I think your Q9550 is a little bit out of the ordinary. Would have liked to see what it could do in a EP45 UD3P

No,I consider it just tad above average Q9550 E0,nothing special..

There are really GOLDEN specimens that hit 4.2GHz+ w/ 1.3V..
