I just bought this mobo and the g-skill 1066 2gb flashed to mbios mobo detected 1066 at boot
I tried to OCed my g0 Q6600 to 3.4 but im having BSOD at prime so i went down to 3.3ghz
my vcore is 1.42 nb is 1.4 ram is 2.1v as advertised. should i try 1.45 for 3.4? btw im using Thermalright http://www.xoxide.com/thermalright-true-black-extreme-cpucooler.html with 2 fans can this heatsink handle 3.4? thanks in advance

Yea sure! I had my E6600 at 3.4 with 1.525 volts with acceptable temps. I'm using the same heatsink as you minus an extra heatpipe so you should be fine with the TRUE 120 and 2 fans (unless the fans are 40mm ones :laugh:)

P45 is not so friendly with 266mhz fsb CPUs. but it do well on 200mhz and 333mhz fsb CPUs.



that's only require 1,385v for Q6600 G0 to go that high, on Abit IX-38 QuadGT. cooled wih ASUS Silent Knight. pretty warm though, compared to Thermalright Ultra 120 eXtreme

with P45, try not to increasing vMCH too much. it gets pretty warm sooner compared to X38.
and, try loosening your RAMs. go for higher CPU clockspeed first.

I would try to limit vcore to 1,45v, and go from there.

also, look for an updated bios.IMHO, P45 bios is not mature enough :)

The p45 can do 500fsb with only 1.3vnb you dont need it that high.

Have you dropped you multi as low as it will go and tried a max fsb test on your board? I did that and mine did 500fsb pretty easy with 1.3vnb.Try playing with the pll voltage as well,and mem oc charger/ai clock twister?

Thats untrue. I'm running a 266 strap on my 4400 and its humming along at 3.4GHz. P5Q series does currently have some issues when using a 400MHz strap though.

Mine seems to run the 400 strap fine,for some reason.I am on 400 strap now with ram at 800 1:1,i only have a single 1gb reaper in atm though as i am waiting for my new ram back from crucial.

what I mean was, 266mhz CPU, not strap. I got your point, but after a little time of experimenting, i found out that way, P45 mobos (P5Q, P5Q pro, DFI DK P45, Biostar Tpower P45) are not friendly with 266mhz CPU. but yes, it has no issues with 266mhz strap. strange eh?
