    @Doruk G
    Try increasing MCH OverVoltage graduately up to +0.125

    Run 6+ passes of memtest86+ before running windows.
    If memtest86+ pass, in Windows run Prime95 blend torture for 8+ hours.
    Watch core temps with CoreTemp/RealTemp to make sure there's no problem with CPU cooling, they should be below 60c for stock settings I think.
    Those programs can be found in http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/late...30/#post284762

      @Chike

      Hi thank you for your swift reply.
      I just tried to change the values for stability but when ever i try to memtest i get the red errors at the beginning.

      Could this be a bad ram problem or could you please add me all the field to test for stable system.

        @Doruk G
        May be bad ram or slot, try each stick individually, try different slots if both fail.
        Is "System Memory Multiplier (SPD)____ [2.00] Auto" correct? The 2.00 is there or only "Auto"?

          @Chike

          I just tried to change the slot for both modules. I still have the same issue. I haven't got chance to try one bye one.

          As your question

          Is "System Memory Multiplier (SPD)____ [2.00] Auto" correct? The 2.00 is there or only "Auto"?


          I select auto for it.

          But i noticed that when i overclocked my fsb like 333X9 in the next restart i saw that in the bios itself recognize the modules frequency as 800 Mhz.
          System Memory Multiplier (SPD)_________ [3.20]
          Memory Frequency _________[800]______[1066]

          What should it be causing this. I will try separately today.

          Thanks.

            Thanks for an informative thread, but I need help to update my Backup Bios on the P35-DQ6 motherboard. I was told that it's just keyboard strokes to update the Backup Bios to the Main Bios.
            Thanks!

                Are similar guides available for AM3 BIOS'es?

                  Not anywhere I have seen, I can help you or any user find AMD Specific forums if you need AMD help though.

                      Do you need it? I believe TAT is no longer updated, and only works for XP

                        We do still use XP Pro and I will still do that for long long time ... I bet another 10 years minimum ...

                          10 years? Hmmm. The difficulty arises that motherboards will cease to support it, just like Windows 98 after AGP-8x about 2007. Have I got that right?

                              Ok, let me refresh your memories ..


                              .




                              Well, it does not recognize quad CPU,s only dual core ..
                              My Q6600 detected as Pentium M !!
                              And those temps are inaccurate too. ( My CPU runs frozen C1-C2-C3-C4 25 28 25 28 Celsius ) Room temp 20C

                              ( I bet that I found more work for Lsdmeasap ,
                              he will had to update the front page , that this app can only utilize 2 cores max )

                              Thank people :)
