    I found it makes the sniper more accurate at hip and is better for close range shots.

    They only fixed the CPU temp issue on the Deluxe on 1805, the one before the one Im on now, lol.

    What BIOS you using?

    You have probably the most annoying username I've ever come across :p it reminds me of the damn moonpig card adverts. Whoever come up with that annoying beyond hell music needs to be tortured slowly until death :mad:

    TRC: 42
    TRFC: 60
    TRRD: 4
    TWR: 8
    TWTR: 4
    TRTP: 4

    TWR and TRFC are the 2 most important settings, TRFC because you naturally need to set a higher value when OCing high density modules and TWR because although it sarifices bandwidth, loosening it slightly can net some impressive MHz gains.

    This memory wont OC any faster. :banghead:

    I just want better timings. :)

    Have you even tried adjusting TRFC and TWR? If not then I'm not going to do anything more until you do to see if they will go faster :p

    I have had them on auto which sets them just a tiny bit faster than what you said.

    I would have though tighter timings are better than about 60 MHz more no?

    Nope. While bandwidth might be a little lower the extra versatility allows you to crank up the FSB which will allow for better bandwidth than your currently getting. Even the difference of TWR 6>8 can be the key to almost 100MHz more OC. Naturally depending on various other factors. Also remember the P45 doesn't care if your main timings are 4-4-4-12 or 5-5-5-15, it cares about raw SPEED.

    I tried those settings and taking the RAM upto the next step (1066) and it booted but was incredibly unstable, Windows Couldnt load, it only did half a BSOD, and on the second boot, the BIOS had a message about updating to release the full potential of my CPU :wtf:

    I still say I could get those sticks faster :p as for tightening timings;

    TRRD: 3
    TWR: 6
    TWTR: 3
    TRTP: 3

    I doubt you will get any settings lower without making things unstable or increasing voltage.

    Asus P5Q3 Deluxe Wifi - Bios 1901

    Spent the last 5-6 months away from gaming and tinkering around but have just got the spark back. Re built both machines and went watercooling for the first time (just cpu for now).
    Anybody here still using the P5Q3?
    I must of been one of the extremely lucky ones, haven't had to many real problems.

    So glad i went w/c
    Been running this past few nights gradually increasing oc and watching temps. I set vcore in bios to 1.5v (1.48v after droop), fsb 1.3v, nb 1.32v, all others at auto.
    Motherboard ambient is around 15°c
    Here's a realtemp and prime95 run screen:

    Pretty nice, that's similar to the temps I saw on my e8500 @ 4ghz/1.29v under a stock xig s1283. Though I gotta say I'm still not sold on going water yet, between the challenge of OC vs. Temps on air is more interesting with varying setups and airflows, yet more budget based means more money spent on PC components at least in my eyes. I plan to try WC someday, but to beat my current cooling I'd have to spend a lot of money...and hell that could be a new cpu, more ram, an upgraded vid card, etc. But looking at your temps on that run is pretty nice, and I would either take the custom route like you did. Seems that's the real way to go. Nice work ace. How far can that 8500 go?

    The time i spent away i saved for the w/cooling which i admit cost a bit :ohwell:
    Next upgrade will be ati's next gen card then hopefully that'll be it for a while.:D

    As far as max oc thats what i'm shooting for atm. I wont raise above 1.5v vcore in bios until i have to, temps permitting. Then i'll move onto the ram with a dominator flow fan, that i bought from Kyle2020 a while back :toast:
    I have good aiflow over chipset and the asus qfans around the cpu, currently at 1.3v fsb, 1.3v nb, all very cold to the touch. Whats a safe voltage to push through these if i have to up them?

    Depends on how far you need to go, I've heard of guys running up to 1.5v in both, I would say try to keep it below 1.46v on each (considering the .02v increments), but cooling permitting going further might not be an issue. ATM I'm running 1.26v to nb and fsb for 400fsb on the q6600, used the same voltage for 500fsb on an e8500 and e8600 (4ghz on 85 and 4.5ghz on 86)...but the quad tends to need more juice. I could run the lowest allowed values at 400-450fsb with the duals. I have booted and was stable, along with a small increase in temps at 1.5v on nb and fsb for some OC runs before...wish I would've taken some screeny's...maybe I did, but I have yet to find em!

    Have I been really lucky with my board or something, cus I get 0 vdroop. I admit I need a fairly high vcore, but I think that is the CPU's problem.
