Also got my 2nd 8800GT today. It was very easy to get them running in SLI with the XDEV patch: http://xdevs.com/e107_plugins/conten...php?content.30

Couldn't get Rivatuner to manage both cards so installed EVGA Precision which works fine.

I will try and publish my BIOS settings soon. Is there any good reason to update the BIOS? my current version is 0602 08/04/2009.

Will maybe try and tweek Ram timings next!

Is there anything else I need to consider or other info I should post?

Hi Maverickj,

I use Prime95 and IntelBurnTest to stress my E5200... great stress test programs imo!!!

For overclocking graphics cards, have you tried MSI AfterBurner? A very good program imo!!!

0602 version is the latest/last official from ASUS... but if you want, try out the mods in the 1st page and see if they are any better.

Posting your BIOS settings is best for others to help troubleshoot!

Generally speaking, set looser timings and higher voltage(s) as RAM frequency goes up! (especially true for RAMs not found in the ASUS QVL)

Hope all these help!

Hey everyone, the P5Q Pro Turbo uses the Atheros Network card, so if anyone wants to download the latest updated drivers for it they can do that directly from the manufacturers website OK.
Here's the link.
http://partner.atheros.com/Drivers.aspx

If you use the Windows OS (XP/Vista/W7) download this driver installation package which will install the correct driver for whatever you are running.

AR81FamilyWinSetup-1.0.0.49_WHQL.rar

Also, if you use the VIA onboard audio chip as I do you can download the latest drivers from here. Current driver package is v8.7.00.30. (they sound great)
http://www.via.com.tw/en/support/drivers.jsp

As everyone knows, the ASUS site's downloads are years old.

Yea, as ocman said you already have the latest bios installed, but there are a lot of bios mods out that are "suppose to" make compatibility & overclocking on the board easier though I've never tried them as of yet...

One setting you'll see in the bios is AI Clock Twister.
This directly effects the compatibility of the RAM.
Strong for tighter more aggressive timings & light for more compatibility so keep that setting in mind.

I also like OCCT for testing along with Intel Burntest & I always use EVGA Precision for OCing my graphics card, reason being is I can unlock & OC my shader clocks much higher (1674MHz) than with MSI Afterburner which limits my shaders to 1566MHz even when unlocked.

Also, if you didn't catch one of my previous posts you can read the bios settings directly using Everest Ultimate under the bios tab if you have the ATK0110 drivers installed which you can download from Asus support under Utilities. (Its the first one on the list) Pic below of this.

Btw everyone, on my system I've had to up some voltage settings to stabilize everything more while gaming.
Some will say these are a bit high, but as everyone knows each board will be slightly different & who knows exactly what voltages are really being sent to the areas without directly reading them with a volt meter.
I'm not about to start poking around in there either with the system on!
Really what it comes down to is what settings you "feel" comfortable with & I'm not worried as I already have another brand new P5Q Pro Turbo mobo to replace it with if it should go out while the other is being repaired & or replaced!

So with that said these are my "current" settings for a 4GHz OC & 500 FSB using 4Gbs of G.SKILL-F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK RAM in the Yellow slots.
I must say it sure it quick with a 2004MHz FSB!
Picture below as well...

muffin, how did you get the MB to load with nb at 1.4v?
mine doesnt even post when i try it. also having the VTT/FSBterm higher than vcore disables some features of the core 2 duos ... check out paragraph 2 http://www.edgeofstability.com/artic.../gtl/gtl3.html (this link is on 1st page)
so you might wanna lower your vtt to about 0.03v of vcore (cant find the link for that number but im certain i saw it somewhere)

I just set it to 1.40v & it boots up!
You might try setting the AI clock twister to normal or light as this does make a diff if it will boot or not at certain settings.

Thanks for that info as I've never read that anywhere before!
So I've already lowered the VTT by .005v below the vCore .
As I always say, there's no such thing as too much knowledge when it comes to computers & overclocking & Lord knows I don't know everything!

I looked at the beginning of the article "Understanding GTL Reference Voltage" & this is a great read! I had no idea even where to start with these settings or what they did in the bios, but I do know that if set correctly you need very little voltage to get the NB/CPU stable!
The trick is the correct settings so I'll be reading through all of this & hopefully have somewhat of an understanding of it afterwards...or not.
Worth a shot!
Thanks again for the info!!!

I decided this morning that the extra 220MHz on the FSB [although it does look cool] just didn't warrant the extra voltages needed to stabilize my system as tearing apart everything to replace the mobo is a real pain...
So I've gone back to 9x445 which uses lower voltages.
I might later after better understanding GTL reference voltage & being able to use lower voltages at the same settings go back up, but until then I'm gonna use these settings I think as its what I'm comfortable with for now & I'm not out to impress anyone.

This is still extremely fast for gaming which is really all I want!

So with that said here's the current settings for a 9x445 4GHz OC. (pic below as well)

E8400 4.0GHz OC
445 X 9 (4Ghz)
FSB strap: 333
Memory divider: Auto
PCI-E: 100

CPU vCore: 1.31875v
FSB: 1.28v
NB: 1.30v
SB: 1.20v
SB-PCIE: 1.50v (minimum)
CPU PLL: 1.56v
DRAM: 2.140v


C1E: disabled
Loadline Calibration: Enabled
AI Clock Twister: Strong
(The rest of the settings under Loadline Calibration Disabled)

I have flashed P5Q Pro Turbo BIOS on plain P5Q Pro mbo and it worked like a charm..OC was the same,no stability issues or of any kind. Only Firewire did not worked becouse proper IRQ was not assigned trough TURBO BIOS as it should be a value 5.. Maybe if someone could correct this then it would B a 100% working mod.. But there is really no need 4 that becouse there are not any real benefits beside larger numer of OC profiles.. I have performed a hot flash with inserting a BIOS chip from P5KPL-VM G31 mobo before the actual flashing and Ive used ES version of AFUDOS v.236ES and added command line /n /pbnc..

been having a lot of fun playing with my P5Q premium over the last couple weeks, and it really seems to be able to push my E8400 to the limit!

I almost got a 5Ghz validation last night, but the GTL's need some more tweaking and I can get it there 4961mhz just isnt enough! (mind you this is on water)

and also, to anyone who was wondering, GTL voltages REALLY make a difference. they can really help high FSB and CPU clocks immensely.

Although these options are sadly not very adjustable on most of the P5Q boards.....only the premium has full control over them

yeah tell me about it..ASUS cripled BIOS optons on their mediocore boards like P5Q Pro ect so they could overprice their top line mobos.. Lack of proper GTL settings made me to settle @ 3901MHz as that is my max stable @ Prime95 large FFT 12h+.. 1MHz+ FSB and core2 will eventually fail.. 1.3VFSB, 0.63x GTL & Vcore 1.30625V in BIOS, LLC on.. ITs a shame 4 what they have done..
