Asus m4n68t-m v2

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
i have had this mobo for about 1 week now and it is driving me crazy i keep having constant bios errors every time i shutdown and power back up only time i don't get any errors is with all of the jumperfree settings set to auto if i change any of them off of auto i get overclock failure or overvoltage error messages is anyone else out there having these problems?????

i have checked all of these voltages and settings and all of them are right and in within reasonable working voltages of my mobo and processor and i still have these errors!!!!

only thing i can think of is possibly a faulty mobo?

what do you think?

my system is:

AMD ATHLON II X2 255 @ 3.1ghz
ASUS M4N68T-M V2
2X2GB PATRIOT PC 1333 (pc3 10600) DDR3

here is a pic of my current bios settings i can get this system to boot into windows with these settings and it runs completely stable at 3.6ghz
(3.8ghz isn't stable and crashes as soon as i put the cpu under a load)

i have even tried upping the voltages to
1.45 on the processor
1.4 on the ht
1.4 on the vddnb or cpu/nb
and even up to 1.4 on the chipset
and everything in between with no results

it almost seems to me as if this mobo is giving me these errors for no reason what so ever

im just wondering if this is something that can be fixed or if i should get a new mobo but before i go out and spend even more money i figured i would see what someone else thinks

Try setting the timings manually... at the 533Mhz multi it will likely be autoset to 7-7-7, which probably won't work at 1236Mhz, on generic 1333 9-9-9 RAM

Expect holdback with all generic 1333 CL9 RAM and bus clock OC... rule of thumb

im not sure how to change these manually in the bios here is a pic of the options i have to set them

ram timings are currently 8-8-8-20-27 at 620mhz

well since no one can obviously help me with my timings i guess ill just give up on this O.C.

i guess ill just revert to auto on everything and go back to the stock 3.1ghz

You may have to increase those timings closer to the rated 9-9-9 i.e. 8-9-8 or so
Considering it's DDR3-1333, generic CL9, and has the Patriot branding which means it more than likely requires 1.65V for those timings (totally unacceptable IMO), don't expect to be able to OC far, be expected to be held back

i tried setting them to 9-9-9-24 by using

tcl: 9
trcd: 9
trp: 9
tras: 24
and everything else set to auto

cpuz now shows the memory running at these times but its still giving me the errors and hanging up on me

might try 8-9-8-24 when i get home but i really need to know if i can just change it like the other or if i need to change more of the auto settings

If 9-9-9-24 failed on you, 8-9-8-24 will definitely fail on you also_

I suggest bumping your ram voltage to 1.55volts and see that helps stabilize it more

Try 8-9-8-24 at 1.55volts(If that doesnt help keep bumping the ram voltage up little by little till it stabilizes(DO NOT EXCEED 1.65volts <--my recommendations)

Don't touch HT Voltage(LEAVE that on AUTO)
Chipset overvoltage should be on AUTO also

I never touch these two voltages when overclocking and never had to, since they can do more harm than good from my understandings_

If you have reach the voltage limit of 1.65volts on ram and your overclock still won't be stable_

Try bumping the VDDNB Voltage up a few notches, I say about 1.256 volts should do it_

If its stable, start to lower VDDNB Voltage down one notch at a time and test for stability, keep doing this til you find you're lowest possible setting that is stable_ Or if you're still unstable, keep raising the voltage till you are stable_ I say don't exceed 1.35volts, thats just my recommendations_

Well see if any of that helps you, Goodluck

THIS ISNT A FAILED OVERCLOCK

what im wondering is my mobo DOES NOT SUPPORT THIS RAM! BUT IT WORKS????

so im thinking about buying this setup and IT IS SUPPORTED BY MY MOBO

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231189

ive tried setting all these timings and voltages and i have not got a single BSOD

only problems i have is with the bios failing to overclock, failing to shutdown and boot WITH ANY CHANGE OFF OF AUTO TO ANY VALUE EVEN IF IT IS A DEFAULT VOLTAGE OR CLOCK

I CAN BOOT WINDOWS WITH ANY OF THESE SETTINGS AND CANNOT MAKE IT BSOD


im afraid if i keep doing all this stuff im gonna fry my mobo from hard shutdowns and powering it on and off over and over and over just to tweak these things with no results

A low quality 1333 CL8 kit =/= suitable upgrade from current kit
Esp. when RAM is available for same price with 1600Mhz i.e. this and this

is the kingston KHX1600C9D3B1K2/4GX the same as KHX1600C9D3B1K2/4G?
only difference is the x at the end because my motherboard says it supports KHX1600C9D3B1K2/4G but does not say it supports KHX1600C9D3B1K2/4GX

im guessing since everything but the x at the end is the same the answer is yes?

my mobo does not support any patriot memory according to the user manual

i would hate to buy this memory and still have the bios problems but i guess either way you look at it, it is better than the memory i am using
