    Asus Maximus Formula / Rampage bios Bios settings thread

    This thread is for bios setting only post your bios setting and chip type etc... so this can be a resource for people looking to overclock this complexed motherboard. This is not for discussion only information on what works with what chip. Keep this thread clean for quick reference not for discussion. To discuss the board use this thread. http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=54058

    Here is another Asus maximus thread full of great info lets not clutter this thread like the one listed here. It is a great read but cluttered to death. http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=168119

    I would love to take credit for these setting some were added to by me but are by no means mine. They are from several sources. Other people worked hard to get these setting. I just found them to work and posted them If you find one post it.

    Still messing around with the QX9650 at 400 MHz FSB. So far, 8x and 9x have been stable. Right now I am testing 9.5x 400 for 3.81 GHz (so far about 40 min Prime stable). I haven't changed much for settings, so I'll only list those:

    Code:
    Extreme Tweaker
    Ai Overclock Tuner : Manual
    OC From CPU Level Up : AUTO
    CPU Ratio Control : Manual
    - Ratio CMOS Setting : 9
    FSB Frequency : 400
    FSB Strap to North Bridge : 400
    DRAM Frequency: DDR2-800
    
    CPU Voltage : 1.325v
    DRAM Voltage : 2.10
    Loadline Calibration : Enabled
    
    All the ram timings are still at Auto (5-5-5-15 @ 400 MHz). I need to tweak this :(

    BTW, in reference to my post above, I placed a 45mm fan directly on the NB heatsink. Right now NB temps are only 49C under load, with stock NB voltage. Thinking about getting two or three 40mm fans and lining them up across the NB heatsink.

    Got it running at 3.81 GHz OCCT stable:

    Code:
    Extreme Tweaker
    Ai Overclock Tuner : Manual
    OC From CPU Level Up : AUTO
    CPU Ratio Control : Manual
    - Ratio CMOS Setting : 9.5
    FSB Frequency : 400
    FSB Strap to North Bridge : 400
    DRAM Frequency: DDR2-800
    
    CPU Voltage : [B]1.375[/B]v
    DRAM Voltage : 2.10
    Loadline Calibration : Enabled
    ...then I took it up to 4.0 GHz:

    Code:
    Extreme Tweaker
    Ai Overclock Tuner : Manual
    OC From CPU Level Up : AUTO
    CPU Ratio Control : Manual
    - Ratio CMOS Setting : 10
    FSB Frequency : 400
    FSB Strap to North Bridge : 400
    DRAM Frequency: DDR2-800
    
    CPU Voltage : 1.425v
    DRAM Voltage : 2.10
    Loadline Calibration : Enabled
    Again, everything else is at stock voltage and settings. I am seeing about a .015-.017v difference between set vcore in the BIOS and what I'm getting in CPUz. I know I need at least 1.375v for 3.81, as I tried a couple notches lower and got some BSODs. It ran 6 1/2 hours of Prime last night before I stopped it this morning.

    Not sure if I need the full 1.425v for 4.0 GHz, but since I went up .05v going from 9 x 400 to 9.5 x 400, I figured that might be about right to start with.

    Next step is going to be 10.5 x 400 and 11 x 400, then trying to tweak the ram to run @ 500 & the FSB at 417 (so the ram is at 500).

    FORGOT TO ADD: I got tired of the whiney little 45mm fan, so I swapped it out with a 70mm fan from a stock AMD heatsink. This fan is a lot quieter, pushes more air, and has a thermal control built in. NB temp runs in the upper 30's to the lower 40's.

    Here's my settings for 4Ghz clocks. Doesn't take much in the ways of custom settings really. There's more to be had performance wise if I were to tune the ram. Just haven't found it necessary yet.

    Running 4gb's of DDR2 1200 and I'm quite sure all is stable on that end. I got my Q6600 to 4ghz on my DFI P35 Dark, and I can't quite get it on my Rampage. Using 308 bios. I was using XP on the DFi and am using Vista on the Asus. I can get into Vista but Prime95 results in an immediate blue screen. I'd love any help on how to make this happen.
