I'll post my problem here since it's fundamentally about the mainboard (or my lack of expertise regarding it)

Firstly my specs.

P5Q Pro (BIOS latest from Asus)
Q9550
2x2Gb DDR2 OCZ Reaper 1066 http://www.ocztechnology.com/ocz-ddr2-pc2-8500-reaper-hpc-4gb-edition-eol.html


I'm trying to OC this board for the first time after receving it as an replacement for my old busted MSI one. Sadly I ran into a wall immediately. I just can't get the memory stable no matter what.

I know this particular CPU chip OC's well since I ran it at 3.8GHz with my old inferior mobo and even then it was only limited by my former 800Mhz budget memory. Also I just tested this Reaper memory stick by stick with Memtest86+ (3 passes and about one hour per stick) on stock settings and it gave no errors. So I'm pretty sure the fault is in my bios settings.


I started to OC with the steps in this post: http://www.overclock.net/t/773046/official-asus-p5q-pro-turbo-pro-turbo-owners-club-all-asus-p45-mobo-owners-welcome#post_9952617 and started to search max settings with 6x CPU multiplier to eliminate the CPU that out of the equation.

The problem, in nutshell, is that when I reach the point in the process when I have to start tweaking the memory settings it immediately becames unstable if I touch any of them. If I touch the divider, FSB strap, frequency or memory voltage it just BSOD's blend test immediately. Small-FTT test is always fine. With 400 FSB, I have tried 1:1 and other dividers while keeping the frequency underlocked or just slightly overclocked, I have tried both 333Mhz and 400Mhz straps, I have tried memory voltages between 2.1 to 2.3, I have tried NB voltages from 1.16 to 1.3, and VTT voltages from 1.16-1.35. Also very first I tried as much as possible on [auto] but no luck: The memory just doesn't stay stable with higher-than-stock FSB regardless of if its underclocked, overclocked or stock speed.

Any tips? Is there some major setting I have overlooked that totally hinders the memory from being stable?

For reference and resource, do check out the 1st page 1st and 2nd posts. biggrin.gif

You should revert back to default BIOS settings and start from there... I think some of those voltages are at their maximum safe. eek.gif

Try not to leave fields on AUTO, unless it's better that way. Set specific values for them. I like to try keeping voltages as low as possible. wink.gif

Lowering voltages could directly lower system temps too. Hence, improving system stability. thumb.gif
Happy overclocking! cheers.gif

Thanks for the advice. I'll check it out when I get home.

In terms of stability - it would boot, just BSOD once I started IBT (max). Usually after the first pass (177s+)

I do have a question, it suggests changing the NBv and VTTv to small increments, however my mobo only lets me change by .10v increments
NB: 1.1-1.4v
VTT: 1.2-1.4v

Will give you guys some update once I get home smile.gifthumb.gif

It would be easier to trouble shooting your oc problem if you can list your current BIOS settings. thumbsupsmiley.png

 

Personally, I think OCZ RAMs aren't that great for overclocking... thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif Using 2 X 2GB OCZ Platinum DDR2... I'm a victim too... doh.gif

Just use the smallest increment that is available to you and test your way up! Looking forward! wink.gif

turned the NB and VTT down to 1.2v, Strap to 333mhz and DRAM Freq to 741 (FSB is at 370).

Vcore still at 1.35v - let me see what happens tongue.gif

If not, I'll start back at square 1 and go on from there.


edit: froze during IBT....back to square 1 I guess!

Would you say it is necessary to pass IBT in order for a system to be stable at a certain clock speed? (LIN test)

Yes. You need to pass IBT 20 runs and Prime95 for at least 12hrs in order to consider a given oc being stable. Usually having done the latter one shall do it. IBT takes less time.specool.gif

Yeah, usually run IBT as it tells me if I will fail much sooner tongue.gif

Back to the stable clock...
FSB at 350

Vcore - 1.2875v
NB-1.2v
VTT-1.2v
Memory at 2.0v

I guess I should just bump the FSB 5 at a time?

Update:
Ok, 3.727ghz stable. FSB @ 355x10.5
vcore 1.3v
nb1.3v
vtt 1.3v
mem 2.0v

Personally, I think OCZ RAMs aren't that great for overclocking... thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif Using 2 X 2GB OCZ Platinum DDR2... I'm a victim too... doh.gif

Most of my settings are on [auto] because I haven't got far enough into OC'ning to tweak the delicate things yet. Problem is that when I begin touching any of the memory related settings it looses stability. I literally can't change anything in that department from the defaults. CPU itself OC's fine, I just can't get started with the memory.

Edit: This is how far I got by just adjusting memory divider to 1:1 and increasing FSB freq. Note that my RAM is rated to 1066Mhz. Now at this point increasing would require more tweaking, but if I even touch VTT, NB or DRAM volts memory immediately becomes highly unstable. Any VTT change leads to PC not booting or BSOD'ing instantly for example. I find this to be very strange.

Any ideas what to tweak from this point onwards? I'm open to suggestion eventhough chances are high that I have already tried that (all basic NB, VTT, DRAM starting points etc).

^At those settings, you're stable? or is that your target? p.s. what is your cooling?

I would start everything off at the lowest voltages (except for your vcore, see what it is in CPU-Z at stock FSB)

and bump everything by an increment of 1.

I got my system stable last night at FSB of 360 @ 3.78ghz
with the following settings:

Vcore 1.3125v
NB: 1.2v
VTT: 1.2v
SB: 1.5v
Mem: 2.0v

divider is at 333mhz
freq at 721mhz

I haven't tried anything higher as it was 2am by the time I finished IBT (6-7 runs) figured it was good as temps stayed around ~66C
