If you need any system specs, my profile is fully accurate.<br />
<br />
I have a p5b-e (p965 chipset) and from what I have heard, it does not support EPP (not sure how accurate this is). My RAM (see profile) should be running at 4-4-4-12 and uses EPP, but should I change any RAM setting, my computer will not even post (requires me to reset my CMOS). Is there any way around this? Even turning it off auto, but leaving all the settings the same causes this.<br />

</div>I had to do that ~6 times. Every time I changed anything with the RAM, my comp wouldn't POST.

Did you enable the ECC option in BIOS? Is there an option to enable it? ASUS's website should have a matrix of RAM compatibility. Unfortunately, the website is not allowing me in ATM.

</div>Change the timings to 4-4-4-12 on a 2:3 ratio for full 800mhz with a 2.1v. Do not give the RAM anything less in voltage because that may be the cause of not booting. <br />
<br />
When overclocking, change the RAM to a 4:5 ratio and maintain a 2.1v minimum and you can go as high as 2.30v, that's safe for them, then again, it all depends if your RAM has Micron D9s, check to see if they're rev 1.x, if 2.x then don't expect too much out of them, they will not be Micron D9s but PROMO which is decent but not as good. <br />
<br />
And remember, use a minium of 2.1v or use a 2.2v.
