Manual Settings for Asus P5w DH Deluxe and Twin2X4096-6400C5?


Recommended Posts

I thoroughly reviewed the other threads and couldn't find anything applicable to my mobo/ram combination. I am running bios ver 2801.


I don't want to overclock anything at this point. I want to set the timings manually, but am not sure what all the settings are. I have input the 5-5-5-18 settings in the bios and have the voltage set to 1.8v as indicated on the modules, but am not sure what value is best for the write recovery.


Thank you for the advice!!

I would try these settings:


Configure System Frequency/Voltage

  • AI Overclocking = Manual

  • CPU Frequency = 266

  • DRAM Frequency = 800MHz

  • Performance Mode = Auto

  • PCI Express Frequency = 100

  • PCI Clock Synchronization Mode = 33.33


  • Memory Voltage = 1.8v

  • CPU Core Voltage = Auto

  • FSB Termination Voltage = Auto

  • MCH Chipset Voltage = Auto

  • ICH Chipset Voltage = Auto

Advanced Chipset Settings

  • Configure DRAM by SPD = Disabled

  • DRAM CAS# Latency = 5

  • DRAM RAS# Prechardge = 5

  • DRAM RAs# to CAS# Delay = 5

  • DRAM RAS# Activate to Precharge: 18

  • DRAM Write recovery Time = 6

Thanks for the reply DerekT!! I will try those settings.


I have another quick question if you don't mind...I have never overclocked a computer before and am worried that if I do, I may damage mine. Is my computer a good candidate for overclocking (is it worth it)? Right now my cooling is the stock intel cpu cooler that came in the retail packaging and 3x120mm case fans in my antec p180b. I have (but have not yet installed) a Zalman CNPS9500LED. I don't think I would go to the trouble of switching to water-cooling though.


What settings would you recommend to get the most from my computer?

OK, I ran it for 20 minutes as you suggested, and my results are as follows:


core 0: minTemp 30 C, maxTemp 66 C

core 1: minTemp 29 C, maxTemp 64 C


This test was run with the stock intel boxed proc fan/heatsink.


THANKS for your help DerekT!!

I would say that an overclock to 3.2 - 3.4Ghz should be workable with that cooler. I would use Arctic Silver MX for thermal interface material.





Thanks for the advice DerekT. :)


I have (but have not yet installed) a Zalman CNPS9500LED. Do you think that this cooler would be adequate or do I need to buy a different one??
