Copy and paste jobby;
any 1104 for plain old p5q ?, using 1004 still has mem problems.
Running 1104 BIOS on a P5Q Pro
E8400 at 400x9 Prime stable at 1.25V. Will try 444x9 at 1.3V tomorrow.
just got my new ballistix,they are-BL12864AA106A.8FE5,they are rated at 2.0v now not 2.2v.My machine has been perfectly stable with the single gb stick of pc6400 reaper hpc,so lets see if i get lots of random bsods with these.
I will let them rest for a couple of days then give them a push.They are running at 1066mhz/2.0v/1:1 on the 400 divider.The closest i can get to 1066 on the 333 divider is 9 or 800 something,and on the 266 divider 1003.
EDIT-new p5q-e bios is up,P5Q-E BIOS V1103 Enhance the compatibility with certain memory.
Youknow I just noticed, 72 downloads for that P5Q Pro BIOS options explanation and not a single thanks.. ungreatful cheapy bastards... People wonder why I don't go into nowhere near as much detail as I used to
You'll get a thanks from me on the Dlx one once boot logo is sorted.
You had any luck with that yet?
TBH I think you need to clear your CMOS, I see no reason why the boot logo shouldnt appear.
Hey ketxxx I think you can help me overclock my E4400 to 3.2Ghz 400 Mhz FSB and btw I have a P5q pro. Can you?
my p5qPRO with ket's mbios 1104
i reached 400 fsb with q6600 after mbios 1104
probably my adata extreme 1066+ is working now
Where are you ket?
lol, Ketxxx does not make a post in 28 hours and people get worried.
Edit: Rakee fill out your System Specs in User CP so we can see what hardware your running when we try to help. I have a P5E not a P5Q-E so I will probably not be very useful.
I can reach 3.8ghz in both 1004 and 1104 mBios using air. ram @ 1088mhz
Im still finding the right voltages for 4ghz
i bought p5q pro to get better overclocking
but my old p5b p965 chipset boards benchmark results were better
i suppose its about p5b's stable bios
i hope in the near future latest and stable bios of p5q pro will give better oc benchmark results
Ok people are reporting all kinds of things with mBIOS 1104. To help me keep track of things say what your max CPU\memory\FSB frequency was prior to mBIOS 1104, and what it is with mBIOS 1104.
Here's a big "thank you" for this thread and also for Ketxxx's thread about his modded BIOS for the Asus P5Q Pro.
I've ordered the gear in my System Specs list, including P5Q Pro and Q9450. It should all arrive in a few days. I don't have any experience with overclocking but I want to get the best performance I can from this new hardware so this thread will be a great help.
I'll post again in a week or so to let you know what OC results I get and whether the 4 sticks of Patriot ram work with it. I'll test both the standard 1104 and modded 1104 BIOS.
Thanks again for posting so much useful info.
NP m8 If you can cancel the order on the Patriot memory and buy some Kingston, Geil, OCZ or G.Skill. The P5Q boards absolutely hate Patriot memory from my experiences and will not even POST with the memory.
These new ballistix pc8500's have been totally fine for a week at 1066/2.0v,no bsods or anything at all.
Oh and i got my gainward HD4850 today yaaaaaaay
lol, like a kid in a sweetshop I'm considering a 4870, but need to shift my 3870s first. I like the 3870s, for me even just one runs everything max settings good performance, even in Crysis. However I really don't want to mess around switching to a bigger case and all the hassle involved with "the move".
I got 11700 on 3d06,with my card stock and chip at 3.2ghz.And P6000 on 3dmark vantage at the same settings.
I had to screw my 3850 with a 810core and 1000 mem to squeeze 11400 on 06,never tried vantage with the 3850.
11.4k is great for a 3850. My 3870 hybrid (uses GDDR3) @ 850\2GHz returns a nice punchy 11.9k. Even @ stock (780\1.8GHz) I got a nice score, smidge over 11k in 3dm06.
Where are all the guys with p45 ddr3 setups?
I've finally got a stable P5Q3 Deluxe after swapping out OCZ 1800mhz rams for Corsair XMS3 1600mhz . Does anybody have oc results to share (cpu or mem)?
Here's a quick oc to prove it can be done!
Looking forward to more results being posted, i feel like i'm the only one with this board, lol.
Everybody sticks with DDR2 because the P45 is picky enough with that, nevermind DDR3
