    Great news Grnfinger.
    When you you finish testing,could upload a seting pattern for quads@500fsb+1200 ram?

    thanks in advance!

    Thats Great Grnfinger, nice overclocks on this board. The first thing I notice is it isn't running 1:1 - if there are more 12:10 results with prime95 9+hr pics with those settings I think I would change my opinion about the board.

    1:1 isn't a good ratio on P45. PL has to be set too high.

    New Bios - 1910

    Ok guys, I've grown sick and tired of waiting for Asus to release a decent bios for this board, so I've started making my own Bios.....1910
    Mind you, I've never done such a thing before, and I started "simple" by using the memory table and the p6 micro code table from the P5Q PRO TURBO bios. That board officially supports DDR2-1300 vs DDR2-1200 on the MIIF. Hopefully by doing so, higher memory clocks will be possible and _MAYBE_ pull-ins will be fixed. I'm really enjoying this mini-project though, so I'll look into more modding options for this board, so that we can finally use it's full power. I've just finished making it, and flashing it onto my own board, but I haven't got time to test it right now. Hopefully I'll have some time to test it tomorrow.

    For those interested, I'll upload the bios file for you guys to beta-test it. HOWEVER, I AM NOT HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY POTENTIAL DAMAGE CAUSED TO YOUR BOARD BY FLASHING IT WITH THIS COSTUM BIOS. The risks of trying this shouldn't be very high, though, since this board has 2 different bios chips.

    Please report back with the following information:
    Compared to Vanilla 1901 Bios, does
    1) Your Ram clock higher/lower/same?
    2) Your CPU clock higher/lower/same?
    3) Do Pull-ins work?

    Thank you very much for providing me with this data.

    And here's the link. Remember: I am not held responsible for ANY damage caused by using this costum bios.

    Do you have any suggestions on a Mobo for the i7?
    Hey Greg sorry I miss'd your post...nice to see you around.

    I gotta pile of paper work on my desk, let me clear a few things and I'll load your profile on my wifes rig and see what I can tweak.
    What brand of ram are you running, link would be handy...
    And whats your budget for i7, lots of boards some will cost you your first born child but are worth it, EVGA Classified is what I'm going to grab. got my 2 kids on craigslist now

    Musho,

    I tested your BIOS, all seems OK but the pull-ins don't work. I doubt it's as simple as that, must be part of the BIOS code itself, not the add-ons/ROMs. In fact perhaps the pull-ins work but the GUI in the MIIF BIOS is just not setup to save their values. I wouldn't be surprised if I'm right.

    Can I suggest if/when you make BIOS changes you use the latest modded BIOS as your base. In the BIOS you provided you haven't changed the ROM's for ICHR10R, network boot, CPU microcode etc.

    As this moment in time the latest modded BIOS (with the updated ROMs) is by E.V.O. version 201, see http://www.megaupload.com/?d=L0SV3IN8

    Also, one other thing, you forgot to update the date of the BIOS build. Your build dates back to December 2008. Purely cosmetic but for someone from the outside it would act as an aid to determining older/newer BIOS versions. As it stands he/she would get confused by the newer BIOS version 1910 yet older build date.

    1910 bios performance

    I was in a rush yesterday, since I was going out with some friends I'll redo the mod on EVO's modded bios today or tomorrow. I will fix the date then as well. How does the bios perform with the new tables, though? Are you able to achieve higher RAM/CPU clocks? If it's not improving anything, I'll have to take a look at different tables from other mobos. Thanks for the info.

    Edit: Ket has done a lot of modding on the P5Q-series mobos, on which the pull-ins didn't work either. He accidentally fixed the pull-ins before by importing memory tables from other mobos, so if the problem with pull-ins on the MIIF is the same problem as on the P5Q-series mobos, there was a slight chance of this fixing them. Guess we're out of luck though I'm still interested if there's an improvement in clocking, though!

    Edit2: Where can I find a list of E.V.O.'s modded bioses? I'd like to take a look at them, purely for learning purposes

    EVO's BIOS's are somewhere in this thread, currently three versions (perhaps around page 125-135 if not lost when these forums suffered endless downtime). You can also find them on his German website but I forgot the link. Forumdeluxx I think, somewhere on there, he has a whole thread on the MIIF if I remember correctly - all in German naturally.

    Well if such attempts fixed the pull-ins on the P5Q then don't give up so soon, try various memory tables, who knows, perhaps success is within reach after all. It would seem bizarre that the issue of it not working on the P5Q is different to the MIIF, after all both are P45 boards and developed at the same time. Of course my logical thinking might be completely absurd.

    I wonder, what does it take to be a BIOS team manger at Asus, what are Asus's requirements during the interview because somehow I don't think they check the integrity of such individuals almost at all. Either that or they hire wonderful managers that don't get to have their say because for example the marketing manager gets to tell the BIOS manager what he/she must do - the latter is no more than a human robot fed input. Sad but possibly true, hence our suffering.

    I'll see if it clocks better later today.

    Grnfinger I think you're really Xtrem to waste such time on this mobo with those poor bios ^^

    The MIIF is still my LANrig and don't makes me laugh with that max 666 ram or lil better :/

    But I wanna know if someone has checked that moded bios which gives the support of the SLI

    ...is it a fake or what ? It works ? It rocks ?? Just seen it appears thanks to SimoniX (by PM)

    Well I wouldnt call it a waste of time, I actually enjoy myself, as for teh bios's if your referring to the "modded" bios I dont touch them, maybe if they would actually test them first and report/post there own findings I would try them out but why the hell would I load there bios if they wont even try it themselves...
    I would have a great deal more respect if they were tested by the modder and the results were posted. As I have yet to see a single result from a modded bios.
    As for SLI??? if I wanted it I wouldnt have bought a P45 board

    Try the settings I posted at http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...postcount=3413

    You will need to find the right VCore/PLL/VTT/NB for your CPU/Motherboard to be stable at 4.05GHz but this will no doubt not prove a problem, you just need to experiment.

    The only problem might be your RAM, whether it can do 1200MHz, it's worth a shot. Up your DRAM voltage to higher than mine if need be.

    Don't be annoyed if you can't get stability straight away, simply experiment with the voltages and use Linx and Prine95 and MS Memory Diagnostics Test (if you have Vista installed just press F8). It's best to not boot-up into Windows if you're unsure whether your PC is stable, henceforth do testing in this order 1) Microsoft Diagnosics Tool, 2) LinX (I do 50 loops all RAM) and 3) Prime95 SmallFFT/LargeFFT.

    If you get the above stable and fall back to your desktop when playing a game then simply up the NB voltage a little more - it happened to me in AOEIII.

    Some guidelines for the voltages:
    VCore: 1.3V
    PLL: 1.55V
    VTT: 1.35V
    NB: 1.35V
    DRAM: 2.15-2.35V

    Keep a check at your CPU temps using CoreTemp (Google for it). Also not sure what CPU cooling you have, the standard Intel cooler won't work at 4.05GHz.

    You will need to find the right VCore/PLL/VTT/NB for your CPU/Motherboard to be stable at 4.05GHz but this will no doubt not prove a problem, you just need to experiment.

    The only problem might be your RAM, whether it can do 1200MHz, it's worth a shot. Up your DRAM voltage to higher than mine if need be.

    Don't be annoyed if you can't get stability straight away, simply experiment with the voltages and use Linx and Prine95 and MS Memory Diagnostics Test (if you have Vista installed just press F8). It's best to not boot-up into Windows if you're unsure whether your PC is stable, henceforth do testing in this order 1) Microsoft Diagnosics Tool, 2) LinX (I do 50 loops all RAM) and 3) Prime95 SmallFFT/LargeFFT.

    If you get the above stable and fall back to your desktop when playing a game then simply up the NB voltage a little more - it happened to me in AOEIII.

    Some guidelines for the voltages:
    VCore: 1.3V
    PLL: 1.55V
    VTT: 1.35V
    NB: 1.35V
    DRAM: 2.15-2.35V

    Keep a check at your CPU temps using CoreTemp (Google for it). Also not sure what CPU cooling you have, the standard Intel cooler won't work at 4.05GHz.
    Im using Intel Box Cooler and i dont want to overclock it. I Just want to have about 8500mb/s read.

    This isn't going to happen without overclocking. You can probably lower your performance level to 5 but don't count on that making up for the extra 700MB/s you need to get you to 8.5GB/s.

    I don't understand that corsair says this is PC8500 so why i must overclock something to have that ?

    My friend from steam is using Maximus II Formula and Corsair Dominator but 2x1GB and he have good readings

    I also have some problems with turning my pc ON in morning. When i press power button i only see DET DRAM on lcd poster and i must remove one memory and turn it on and off and place it back.

    Your friend's using a 400MHz FSB Vs 333MHz which you're using. He's also on a different memory divider. He's overclocked his system to put it short.

    PC2-8500 refers to the number of MB/s in theory that the memory is designed to transfer (its read bandwidth capability). In other words 8.5GB/s when run at 1066MHz effective or 533MHz true speed. You'll never get that when paired with an also 1066MHz effective FSB as there's a lot of other traffic that gets sent over the FSB (such as control data) which consumes some of the bandwidth but also delays data transfers from the memory to the CPU. One must also account for the latency to access the MCH by the CPU before the latter starts the data transfer (or completes the write request). This is hence the same for memory write and copy performance.

    So to put this into some easy to grasp perspective, your friend's 1600MHz effective FSB supports up to 12.8GB/s bandwidth hence why his RAM at 1066MHz releases its full potential being clocked at 1066MHz effective. If you were to run your CPU also at a 400MHz FSB (1600MHz effective) (perhaps using his settings as a starting point - if he's stable) and a 7.5 multiplier then you could keep your 3GHz processor speed yet get the extra memory bandwidth from the boosted FSB. On a 333MHz FSB your theoretical maximum memory throughput is 10.6GB/s minus all the overhead. It may seem to you that hey, so that means if I'm only getting about 7700MB/s read out of a maximum of 10600MB/s that suggests the overhead is a massive 2900MB/s. The answer is yes but your BIOS isn't even tuned, go and play with your AI Twister settings from weak to stronger and you'll see what I mean for example. Of course, it would be advisable to test stability but as you're not overclocking you should be good to go.

    As for your power on problem, you shouldn't really leave every single BIOS setting on auto as nothing yet beats the human brain. I would increase your DRAM/NB voltage slightly and see if that helps to start off with.

    P.S Don't assume your friend's BIOS is tuned either, he's got the opposite situation to what you have, his FSB is overload for his RAM setting, if he only increased his RAM speed he would observe instant visible gains in read/write/copy memory performance. Consequently, if he ran his RAM at say 1200MHz (possible) on a 400MHz FSB he would be getting read performance (assuming AI Twister set to strong) of about 9100MB/s and latency of about 53.5ns.

    OK i now understand But i wounder why i can't turn my pc ON when im not usning it for about 10 hours. I only See DET DRAM on lcd poster and i must remove one ram.(1x2GB) and next turn it off and add ram (2x2GB). And what cooler will be good for Q9650 for overclocking to ~ 3.6GHz . Thx for help and sorry for my bad english im still learning.

    Use the template below to fill in your settings, it's easier this way for others to view rather than clicking numerous photos.

    Re-read my above post slower, I make reference there about what I would do firsthand with the DET RAM error.

    In regards to the cooler, many people are in love with the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme but I myself hate how it's attached to the motherboard hence recommend the Noctua NH-U12P. The latter cooler can be removed without taking the motherboard out of your case each time. Either of these coolers need a 2000rpm or higher speed 120mm fan for best performance. You'll need to remove your motherboard upfront to install their CPU socket bracket, thankfully in the case of the Noctua as noted above, this only needs to be performed once.

    e8400 @ 4.0Ghz

    Hi guru's of OC...

    Linpack: Failed 8 out of 10. Temps are fine. With linpack didn't go above 50C.
    Core 1 and Core 2 where 61C max.

    Tried to play with the voltages.. but no luck.
    Can't figure out whats wrong...

    Thanks in advance.

    try this....
    First enable Enable load line calibration and retest, vdroop could be your problem...if it still fails then try the following

    CPU Clock Skew : Delay 100ps

    CPU GTL Reference 0 : -40mv
    CPU GTL Reference 1 : Auto
    CPU GTL Reference 2 : -40mv
    CPU GTL Reference 3 : Auto

    If its still crapping out you will need more PLL or vcore
