I'm having a bit of a problem with overclocking still. My GTL's are all tuned perfectly, I finally found the CPU/NB clock skews that let me boot with 500mhz+ FSB, but the system keeps freezing as soon as I start prime95. (CPU in this statium is clocked down, and memory is not at the limit either, so those two can be excluded from the list)
I cant figure out what the problem is. Bumping up the VTT voltage and NB voltage doesn't seem to have any effect at all for the freezing. I hardly get errors in prime95 (Non really) because the real culprit is just that the system keeps freezing.
Perhaps 500± FSB is just a bad number and I should try my luck higher (510+) perhaps?
The other weird thing is that the lowest clock skew numbers that even let me boot 500Mhz FSB is 300ps/100ps (CPU/NB Skew) and go up to 700ps/500ps (maximum where it still boots at 500FSB). Ive seen some templates of people that are having 500mhz or even higher and still have these settings on auto or normal. Perhaps my CPU's are just going out of sync at this FSB speed and there is nothing to do about it?

I get the same freezing when going for high FSB and stability testing, I can boot 500x8 and run benches all day but as soon as the system is stressed it freezes.
PLL voltage makes a big difference to my mzx FSB with a Q6600, so does my board's performance level setting.
If you have the option to change your performance level, try relaxing it to 10 assuming you haven't already.
I've gone as far as 513MHz for benching but the highest I can remember getting stable is 488, I'd say drop to your highest stable setting and make small tweaks from there to go higher.

What's up guys.. wink.gif

I have been testing my Kingston HyperX Blu 1600MHz CL9, 1.65V 4GB x 2 memory [KHX1600C9D3B1/4G]..

It works perfectly @ stock 1600Mhz, 1.65V, 9-9-9-27 and Command Rate= 1T

I wanted to see if I could get some OC on it.. wink.gif

First I tried 1866MHz with stock timings 9-9-9-27 and 1.65V, system didn't boot to Windows..

Then I tried to lower timings @ 1600MHz to 8-8-8-24, 1.65V, CR= 1T and it crashed in Prime 95 Custom 4096 - 4096K, 6GB test..

So I gave up and today (few days later) i wanted to see if i could get memory stable @ 1866MHz with some of my timings changed..

I noticed that a lot of 1866MHz RAM kits use 9-11-9-27 timings so I tried that..

Now I'm 2hrs into Prime 95 Custom 4096K - 4096K 6GB test,perfectly stable with @ 1866MHz, 9-11-9-27, CR= 1T, 1.65V..

I have also added a bit of VCCIO voltage (memory controller) I have set it from 1.060V at AUTO setting to manual 1.087V..

My memory bandwidth also increased from 20GB/s @ 1600MHz to 22GB/s in MaxMeM benchmark:

maxxmem2d4558.jpg..

Not bad for a 75$ memory.. thumb.gif

Thanks ocman! I got to WalMart at about 11 (Because there aren't any within 45 minutes of my house) and immediately got in line. Me and my friend were in positions 22 and 23. Turns out the store had "5 of each model, for a total of 30 units." I was very worried all that would be left were 4G models - which I was totally uninterested in - but when I got up to the front of the line, they had exactly ONE 16GB Wifi model left, and it was black, which was my #1 choice. Woooo! A very auspicious day!

I've downloaded the You vs Cat app... pretty soon I'll see if I can get one of my cats to play with me.

Anyway, this was totally a lot of fun. I have never before waited in a line for a product launch and was definitely not into the idea of the Apple Store with many hours of waiting and all the madness. I was really glad I chose to hoof it down to Federal Way to go to the 24 hour Wal-Mart. As it turned out, there were only about 45 or 50 people in line, in total, so while about 20 of them got turned away, the majority got gear, and it didn't take more than 30 mins or so to get everyone done. Was super cool. (I did however, make friends with a really nice kid in line who was right behind me, who could only afford a 16GB wifi model... and as I said, I got the last one. I TRIED to buy a 32GB wifi model, just to help him out to ensure HE could grab the 16GB wifi, but they were all gone by the time I got up there, and everything else was 4G.. I felt sooooo bad... for a minute.)
A pic of the cat that will likely be too lazy to play with me. (Click to show)

Yes, this Kingston memory is very nice indeed.

Would anyone mind helping a newb get DDR3 memory running on a P5Q Pro Turbo?

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600
BIOS v. 0602
OS: Win7 Ultimate 64-bit

Not sure what else is important here.

I saw on a couple sites that 1066/1333 DDR3 memory could run on this Mobo. So I called Asus to confirm this before purchasing any memory and was told that it could run it (even though it's not listed in the specs), but I would have to set the timings manually. I was in a hurry so I didn't dig any further. Today I called again and was told that this Mobo does not support DDR3 in any way. Tech support pretty much ended the conversation there.

I'm not having much luck figuring this out on my own. So any help would be much appreciated. I'd really like to install 16GB of RAM without paying through the nose for DDR2.

Many thanks,
Jason

Not sure what else is important here.
I saw on a couple sites that 1066/1333 DDR3 memory could run on this Mobo.

DDR3 memory cannot be installed into DDR2 slot on the motherboard as it's differently keyed..

P5Q Pro TURBO does not support DDR3 memory, its ONLY DDR2!!!

Thanks for the info smile.gif

Just so everyone knows, I got my information from Legenhardware.com review of the P5Q Pro Turbo (which is linked to in this thread).

Quote:
In order to support the latest DDR memory types, the Memory Controller Hub (MCH) features wider buses that support Dual-Channel DDR2 at 667/800/1066 and DDR3 at 1066/1333, for up to an incredible 16GB of memory. ASUS also supports native DDR2-1300 memory with the P5Q Pro Turbo through overclocking.
