Thank you for your effort, but it didn't work, my PC wouldn't boot...


But FYI on the following things:


1. For the DRAM Frequency, my bios has a setting of 1067, not 1066...if that matters.


2. For the two settings of:


CPU Spread Spectrum: Enabled

PCIE Spread Spectrum: Enabled


They both only have the option of Auto or Disabled, so I chose Auto.


3. I could not find the following settings in my bios:


FSB Termination Voltage

North Bridge Voltage

North Bridge Voltage Reference

South Bridge Voltage



I don't know if any of those setting matter, but those are the few things which differ from your instructions.
