Asus P6T Deluxe V2 BIOS settings help please...

Hi

Have just installed my shiny new Asus P6T Deluxe V2 board and I7-920 CPU and would like to know please..which BIOS settings I need to change to make the most of the board.

Current BIOS version 0504 (came with it).

At the moment everything is set to AUTO in the BIOS.

RAM? I have 6GB Gskill Trident F3-16000CL9T-6GBTD.

Stock heatsink and fan.

Im also running Windows XP Pro but have an SSD with Windows 7 on it.

Im a bit of a noob when it comes to BIOS settings so please plain english would help...lol

Thanks in advance.

I assume bios follows closely to layout of P6T6 WS Revolution http://i4memory.com/f54/asus-p6t6-ws...emplate-18770/ and http://i4memory.com/f54/asus-p6t6-ws...n-shots-18771/ ?

Reading http://i4memory.com/f55/intel-core-i...ide-x58-13051/ all posts particularly post #3 should help with understanding the key settings you are adjusting. Memtest86+ v4.0 helps of specific diagnostics to see which voltages effect what part of instability there is still need windows testing to confirm stability.

This is what I'd set for default speeds


****************************
AI Tweaker
****************************

AI Overclock Tuner: Manual
CPU Ratio Setting: 20
Intel Speedstep Tech: Disabled <-- must set to Enable to use Turbo multiplier (i7 920 20x default, 21x is turbo multiplier. So Enable for 21x multiplier
BCLK Frequency: 133 <-- base clock
PCIE Frequency: 100 <-- manually set to 100mhz
DRAM Frequency: DDR3-1066Mhz <-- memory dram frequency
UCLK Frequency: 2133Mhz <-- uncore frequency needs to be always 2x times memory dram frequency for stability
QPI Link Data Rate: AUTO <-- leave AUTO

*******************
DRAM Timing Control
*******************

DRAM CAS Latency: 7, 8 or 9 DRAM Clock
DRAM RAS# to CAS# Delay : 7, 8 or 9 DRAM Clock
DRAM RAS# PRE Time: 7, 8 or 9 DRAM Clock
DRAM RAS# ACT Time: 24 DRAM Clock
DRAM RAS# to RAS# Delay: AUTO
DRAM REF Cycle Time: AUTO <-- can leave AUTO but manually setting to 88 to 110 for stability
DRAM WRITE Recovery Time: AUTO
DRAM READ to PRE Time: AUTO
DRAM FOUR ACT WIN Time: AUTO
DRAM Back-To-Back CAS# Delay: AUTO

DRAM Timing Mode: AUTO <-- 1T or 2T set manually - 24/7 2T doesn't loose much performance anyway
DRAM Round Trip Latency on CHA: AUTO
DRAM Round Trip Latency on CHB: AUTO
DRAM Round Trip Latency on CHC: AUTO

DRAM WRITE To READ Delay(DD): AUTO
DRAM WRITE To READ Delay(DR): AUTO
DRAM WRITE To READ Delay(SR): AUTO
DRAM READ To WRITE Delay (DD): AUTO
DRAM READ To WRITE Delay (DR): AUTO
DRAM READ To WRITE Delay (SR): AUTO
DRAM READ To READ Delay(DD): AUTO
DRAM READ To READ Delay(DR): AUTO
DRAM READ To READ Delay(SR): AUTO
DRAM WRITE To WRITE Delay(DD): AUTO
DRAM WRITE To WRITE Delay(DR): AUTO
DRAM WRITE To WRITE Delay(SR): AUTO

****************************
CPU Voltage: AUTO <-- usually i leave AUTO first run to find default VID for stock clocks, then set it manually so it corresponds to the AUTO value i.e. if AUTO = 1.184v vcore, i set to manually 1.200v so bios reads 1.184v
CPU PLL Voltage: 1.80 <-- set manually
QPI/DRAM Core Voltage: 1.20 <-- also refered to as CPU VTT or QPI VTT voltage or uncore voltage which intel max spec'd safe volts is 1.35v but folks bench till 1.65v. Must keep VDIMM memory voltage within 0.5v of uncore. So if QPI/DRAM 1.2v VDIMM must be at most 1.7v. If you need 1.75v vdimm then QPI/DRAM needs to be minimum 1.25v. Usually higher bclk, mem clock or uncore frequency clock needs higher QPI/DRAM and VDIMM volts. DDR3-1866-2000+ speeds will need anywhere between 1.4-1.65v QPI/DRAM outside of intel safe max.
IOH Voltage: 1.10 <-- manually set
IOH PCIE Voltage: 1.50 <-- manually set
ICH Voltage: 1.10 <-- manually set
ICH PCIE Voltage: 1.50 <-- manually set
DRAM Bus Voltage: 1.64 or 1.66 <-- manually set memory volts set to within 0.5v of QPI/DRAM.
DRAM DATA REF Voltage on CHA: AUTO
DRAM CTRL REF Voltage on CHA: AUTO
DRAM DATA REF Voltage on CHB: AUTO
DRAM CTRL REF Voltage on CHB: AUTO
DRAM DATA REF Voltage on CHC: AUTO
DRAM CTRL REF Voltage on CHC: AUTO
****************************
Load-Line Calibration: AUTO <-- with intel droop (Disabled) or without (Enabled) - with droop is safer although i find AUTO best stability
CPU Differential Amplitude: AUTO <-- set for higher bclk and mem clock stability 1000mv
CPU Clock Skew: AUTO <-- depends on cpu for max bclk
CPU Spread Spectrum: Disabled
IOH Clock Skew: AUTO <-- depends on cpu for max bclk
PCIE Spread Spectrum: Disabled

CPU Advance Settings
C1E Support: Disabled
Hardware Prefetcher: Enabled
Adjacent Cache Line Prefetcher: Enabled
Intel (R) Virtualization Tech: Disabled
CPU TM Function: Disabled
Execute Disable Bit: Disabled
Intel (R) HT Technology: Enabled
Active Processor Cores: ALL
A20M: Disabled
Intel (R) C-State Tech: Disabled
****************************
Express Gate: Disabled
Currently, playing with same memory as you but on Asus P6T6 WS Revolution so should have some mem clocking results for you but 2000mhz Tridents are Elpida BBSE ics are pretty similar in performance, good set would do:
  • DDR3-1600Mhz 6-7-6-18 or 6-7-6-22 1T at 1.65v with QPI/DRAM (CPU VTT /uncore volts) of between 1.35-1.5v voltage depends on quality of your cpu's integrated memory controller as well as cpu cooling. [Ideal for 24/7 settings]
  • DDR3-2000Mhz 8-9-8-24 or 9-9-9-24 1T/2T at 1.65-1.75v vdimm with QPI/DRAM of between 1.4-1.65v voltage depends on quality of your cpu's integrated memory controller as well as cpu cooling.

Also saw you had stuttering issues, 99% sure that's due to SSD drive probably so try your first experience on X58/core i7 with regular SATA drive until you find your feet

Thanks George...but the stuttering issue IS ON A regular HDD not the SSD...

Will try those settings out and see how I go...really appreciate your input!!

Try another video card or video card drivers and see as well. Also read http://i4memory.com/f54/asus-x58-6-1...stalled-19200/ for info on optimal differential voltage between QPI/DRAM and VDIMM voltages while that thread is for memory detection it's also about memory stability as each cpu/mem pair as optimal differential voltage. For example my Gskill Trident 2000mhz kit with W3540 likes between 0.2v and 0.3v differential voltage more so need to set vdimm within 0.2v to 0.3v of QPI/DRAM. i.e. for 2000mhz speeds QPI/DRAM 1.4-1.45v and VDIMM 1.66v or around 0.21v to 0.26v differential voltage.

Tried all of the above suggestions and still get stuttering every few seconds....could it be that I am using 6Gb ram on a Windows XP Pro install?

I assume you tried a different video card first ?

Using above bios template can you post your settings you using now or have tried ? I don't game much but from what I read stuttering usually is video card/driver or board bios related. Although using 6GB in winxp will only give you 2.5-3.5GB of real available memory in total and max 2GB per process/app usable.

Or could be game COD4 itself http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=99831

Does stutter only happen in COD4 and not other games ?

I'd also try updating your bios via in bios ezflash

P6T Deluxe V2 has following bioses from ftp://ftp.asus.com.tw/pub/ASUS/mb/LG...P6T_Deluxe_V2/

0302
0406
0504
0610

Another thing to try is removing the sound card and any additional usb devices and see. Also try using a different keyboard/mouse (if USB connected).

Lol..you make it sound like everyone lives in a computer shop....I dont have several video cards to choose from or other keyboards or mice etc etc..so I have to muddle through with what I have....

I have since installed my Vertex SSD and Windows 7 and all my issues seem to be gone.

I really do appreciate all your help though!!!


Cheers

Can't believe you don't have spare components hehe but yeah understand what you mean

Win7 + SSD fixed it huh... could of been slow disk access in some games causing it then. Still all the above suggested steps are valid diagnostic steps I'd take to figure out the problem if I was in your shoes. The bios update would a good one i hear 0610 bios is much better for memory compatibility etc too.

Also good forum to browse to find potential issues and solutions http://vip.asus.com/forum/topic.aspx...Language=en-us as well

enjoy the power of nehalem
