Asus P67 Series Information Thread (drivers, BIOSes, overclocking, reviews) **UPDATED 4/22** - Page 248

You are better off running your drives in AHCI, so if you ever do a re-install, make the change. There are also other ways to make the change in your current installation. Search the forums for these solutions. If you do install an SSD, you will without a doubt want/need AHCI.


regarding your memory:

Try bumping your DRAM voltage up a little. I have the vengeance 1866 memory (2x4GB), and can't get it to run stable at stock 1.5V. Your 4 sticks certainly put more strain on the memory controller than my 2. I only pushed voltage a little 1.52V, but it solved the problem even at my OC. When I first put my sig rig together, at the stock 3.4Ghz, my memory failed to allow consistant boots, and I was always resetting the Mem OK button. Bump the voltage in small increments, and make sure you have entered your DRAM timings in manually rather than leave them set to auto. The manual setting helped, even though the timings where actually showing up correctly. XMP profile has never worked with my memory and Mobo combo, but it's stable, so why mess with what's not broke... go figure.

I answered your other questions above in an edit.

Thank you sir. You definitely know your way around a PC.

I know some things, but not everything thinking.gif ... I haven't built a PC since 6 years ago and i had a lot of re-learning and research to do before attacking it again. In between i had owned 2 macbook pros. So I was coming back to windows, and i must say i'm rather impressed with windows 7. It's not so bad.

I'll play with the voltage and see what i can do.

Is overclocking on these boards recommended through the AI suite or through the bios? If it happens to be the AI suite is it easy enough to manually adjust things instead of just saying overclock this to "performance" or "ultra" mode ... or whatever modes it has in there. I've only tried it once when i first got this board a month ago to which is posted memory errors and reset itself as i explained above. So i stopped messing with it seeing as my memory wasn't on the manufacturers list. However, now I'll play with it some more to see what i can do!

Thanks again everyone. I owe you a beer drunken.gif

Personally, I wouldn’t do anything through AI suite. But if you want to play with it, it will give you a ballpark idea where the UEFI settings ultimately need to be as a starting point. Then work in the UEFI to get permanent settings that are lower than what you had in AI.
It can get frustrating with all the failed boots, but eventually you’ll find the right spot.

Take the time to read through the Sandy Bridge OC guides in the other forum threads at this sight. There are many dedicated members who will help you with specific problems you will undoubtly encounter in this journey we call overclocking.

Just make sure you keep a close eye on your temps depending on what OC you ultimately strive for. Each CPU has its own individual subtle characteristics, so it's hard to be more specific.

And as always… Welcome to OCN.

I just wanted to start off by saying I'm glad you were able to finally get into windows and are able to move onto your second issue! thumb.gif

To add to xandypx' advice regarding memory; it is typical that using higher density sticks will require a bit extra VccIO voltage to maintain stability. Vdram isn't a bad place to look as well, but you do want to be careful as the IMC is actually on the chip, so there is potential for damage if you increase this too high. I wouldn't go past 1.70v personally, and most references start to get concerned once you exceed 1.65v.

P67 unfortunately has been plagued with many memory compatibility issues, and an increase in VccIO is one of the easiest ways to overcome high density issues. You can also take a look at your timings - setting your UEFI to XMP will automatically set the Vdram voltage to the 1.65/1.5v settings as well as (USUALLY) the individual timings, but often leaves out the command rate. Command rate is, in my opinion, the number one stumbling block when setting up your memory overclock as some memory just will not run at 1T. (I'M LOOKING AT YOU GSKILL mad.gif )So, if your other memory timings look right, I would definitely play with 1T versus 2T to see if this allows you to maintain a stable overclock on your RAM. There is honestly little difference between the two settings, unless you are a serious bencher, and probably wouldn't notice this timing change in day-to-day operations.

Let us know if you get that RAM running right, and I too would like to thank xandypx for his information. While I consider myself fairly knowledgeable, I always enjoy seeing folks with more detailed information chime in and bring a ton of information to the table. (I hadn't even thought about UEFI changes allowing I/O devices to "double register" in the pre-windows environment.) cheers.gif

Oh, that reminds me, were you able to locate your hot plugging ability in the UEFI? It can be found in the advanced menu, under SATA management. Below is a screenie I happen to have from some other thread: CLICK ME TO SEE (Click to show)

Awesome if our board can really support PCIe 3 then that would be crazy x8x8x8x8 in PCIe 3?!? I'm skeptical though because I though the boards had to have special switches for more than a single direct PCIe 3 lane. Either way just glad to have IB support.

Yeah I'm confused about that. I thought all boards that basically can do Xfire/SLI won't get the PCIe 3
post #2480 of 3000
Yea that's what I said. I was commenting on the fact that PCIe3 was mentioned in the changelog for the BIOS for my board. So take your "once and for all" to Asus not me.

And actually I think you're mistaken, a single direct link to the PCIe slot can be made to go to PCIe 3 without any special hardware other than the chip. It's the dual slot boards you are thinking of.

Don't ley Psy hear you say that Tenno! You'll get chewed out as if he's told us this a thousand times. rolleyes.gif
