When you get to the BIOS after you clear it please load setup defaults and then set the memory Voltage to 2.2 Volts if you rev 1.X and 2.1 Volts if you have 2.x and then set the NB/MCH Voltage t0 +.05 Volts and exit the Bios saving changes and let it run http://www.memtest.org for at least 2 or 3 passes.

Thanks for the help, starting to respond, I'm now able to save bios changes, however after a minute whole thing locks up, seems like the longer I keep it off, the longer I can keep it on (temperature ????????).


Any other setting I should be looking at?


BTW: RAM is ver. 1.2 ...on BIOS can only overvoltage RAM Max. 3.5V. That would give me a total of 21.5V ?????

OK....couldn't wait a month for MB to come back, so I picked up a ASUS P5E WS PRO....think this one will work out better and shouldn't have any problem running the 4 sticks at 1066.

Me being kind of a novice...could you send me all the settings I should change for this MB? (RAM is ver. 1.2)

Thanks for the help
