Would like to ask a question about NB voltage. The rated FSB for the P5Q is 1600 mhz. Right? I've read that unless you plan to go past this 'wall', there is absolutely no need to increase your NB volts.

Now, considering that Asus is notorious for over volting things, wouldn't it make sense that their "auto" NB Volt would be juiced up a bit to handle (easily) the 1600 FSB? That makes logical sense to me.

400 FSB quad pumped is 1600 FSB. So why should I need to up the NB?

Not trying to be argumentative, just trying to learn.

Set all voltages manually, and set vNB to 1.20 - 1.30V for 400MHz FSB..

Finally have a working Pro Turbo installed and running!
Unfortunately, the seller didn't send me the disk. Do I really need it or can I download everything I need from ASUS website?

The disk that comes with the mobo has nothing but outdated drivers that come with it, so download them directly from their site.
http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_775/P5Q_PRO_Turbo/

For the onboard sound chip (VIA HD Audio-VT1708S) download that directly from VIA. http://www.via.com.tw/en/support/drivers.jsp


If you are using the Intel ICH10R SATA AHCI Controller like I am, then download the latest driver directly from Intel.
Intel® Rapid Storage Technology Driver (Latest: v10.6.0.1022)

On another note: 32bit operating systems are now outdated.
You really need to upgrade to a 64bit operating system to get the most out of your system & use ALL of the available memory in your Computer system. (this includes the onboard memory in your hardware & graphics card(s)) teaching.gif
(If you look at everyone's systems info, you'll notice that just about all of us are running a 64bit system & unlike years ago, there's tons of support with drivers & software now for 64bit systems)
Upgrading to a 64bit OS was one of the best decisions I've ever made... wink.gif

Also, the P45 chipset (& this mobo) really like the 45nm processors over the 65nm when it comes to OCing.
So much easier to OC than the 65nm & uses much less voltage as well which = Longer Motherboard Life!
So if you can afford to upgrade to a 45nm Duo or Quad, do it! wink.gif
Btw R.D. I'm up the hill in Payson! tongue.gif

The original driver disk doesn't even support windows 7 x64. I tried using it before, pretty useless disk anyway. You want the new stuff from asus.

Thanks for the info Muff1n, and I DL'ed every thing. I think I'm all set except for one thing. Seems that the board is having troubles identifying my SSD all the time. Sometimes it will see it on start up, and other times it wont. Any thoughts on that?


I'll invest in a 64bit OS soon, I know I need it, I just haven't gotten around to it just yet. Draggin my feet on that one for sure.
Did you get hit with that dust storm that rolled through? Snorkle.gif

Huh, my P5Q is a weird little bugger. Perhaps I'm holding it wrong?
I measured my DIMM voltage with a multimeter; more precisely, the pin that is closest to the notch in the wider slot area. According to that pin, my mobo runs precisely 0.1v MORE through the DIMMs than I set it to in BIOS. That means, if I set it to 2.1v, it'll actually deliver 2.2v. Or, if it's on auto or @1.8v, it'll really be 1.9v. Crazy eek.gif
Mayhaps I'm measuring the wrong pin?

No, you are wright.

P5Q motherboards do overvolt RAM by 0.1V..
