I would suggest you try the latest bios Ver. 1.006 Beta 6 for A8V Deluxe!

That's the difference -- I'm using 4 DIMMs.
With all 4 DIMMS filled, Set the CMD Rate at 2T.......then try setting memory at 2-2-2-5.

First, if you're not using the beta bios' I posted(1005.020 or 1005.021) you DO NOT have working locks, even with the betas, it is hit and miss, but the option will show up in the bios.

Second, default is 1000mhz HTT and a FSB over ~215-220mhz you need to drop to 800mhz or you're gonna be unstable and possibly damage something........hence Bill Gates's message to shut down your system to prevent your HDD from petering out.

If you are going to overclock >215-220 FSB on rev. 1.02......you need to try bios 1005.021 and see if you can get your AGP/PCI locked........1006.006 is not going to give you locking slots, because ASUS KNOWS that rev.1.02 is not capable of this and remain stable, by a bios THEY endorse. Bios 1005.021 and 1005.020 are bios's that are hacked to allow this....IF you're lucky.

I don't want to be playing a game and have to worry about whether the darn thing is always running at full speed, like I'd want it to be. Anyone have any test information to confirm the responsiveness of the feature? I'm leaning very heavily towards just keeping it disabled, since I haven't seen temperatures that are out of the norm. I'm using the stock heatsink and fan, and I don't plan on overclocking anything.

I've read a few reviews that showed that the CnQ feature had zero effect on performance, but worked as advertized and kept the temps down. The throttle-up is instantaneous. And all benchmark results (sythetic and real-world games) had identical results as well. So CnQ appears to work quite well. I'll post the links when i find them.

I'm thinking of installing the latest VIA Hyperion chipset drivers. The latest version is 4.51 on VIA's web site which is newer than the 4.49 which is posted on the ASUS A8V download page. Looks like many reviews of the A8V used the 4.51 drivers and they were stable.

Has anyone tried these? Any issues? Performance improvement?

FYI, i recently installed the latest Marvell Yukon GigE drivers (v7.14) from Marvell's web site, seems to be working fine. Only issue is that Windows Update still thinks i need to update this driver whereas i'm sure i have the latest version, very strange.

Default Seems to be memory probs...help from the experts?

I seem to be having the same problem with my Asus A8V Deluxe, FX-53 (939pin) and 2 1GB sticks of Crucial DDR 400. Whenever I left the BIOS options at default, the system would hang during the Windowx XP blue screen setup when I attempted to create my partition. After tweaking the memory settings in the BIOS with some of the settings you guys have posted, I have made a little progress, and it will now format my drive to 100% before hanging again. I am getting incredibly frustrated with all of this, and would appreciate any help. ASUS tech support was useless, and Crucial gave me their recommended settings for this memory, but in my BIOS, I have options for like 6 more settings than they gave me recommendations for, and they had no idea what they should be. Here are the options I have in my BIOS, and what Crucial said they should be:

CAS Latency - 3
TRC - 4
TRFC - ?
TRCD - ?
TWR - ?
TRWT - ?
TRAS - ?
TRP - 4
TWCL - ?
Pre-Charge Delay - 8
Use a 1:1 Ration (200mhz)

So I have 6 other options that I have no idea what to set them to other than auto. I know people have got this board to work and they say it runs awesome but I am on the verge of giving up and going with the MSI Neo Platinum. Could someone please help me? I don't think I have a bad board or memory, since whenever I have been playing with the settings, it does make a difference, but it always seems to get stuck at the format 100% complete.
Crucial seems to think if I can get the install done with just 1GB inserted, or even throw in an old 512 stick of DDR 333, then I can go back and put in my 2 1GB sticks and everything should be fine. That sounds great, but if I cant get it to work now, why would it work later on??? I would appreciate any assistance anyone can give me....thanks!
