    Memory

    Have been busy with other things, still would like to update the memory timings for the bios. Especially the Trfc limit of 42 to make overclocking easier but hadn't had any luck with it. Seems the Bios size is a limiting factor and need help with that part of it.

    Any help would be greatly apperciated,

    Thanks

    No haven't figured out if the memory sizing would up the Trfc above 42 or if that is somewhere in the bios. So til I can find a way to update the memory sizing were stuck at a max 42 for Trfc. Even 56 for Trfc would be a great improvement and Asus won't help with this problem. This is still a great board and 3.69Ghz on a Q9550 E0 at stock voltage of 1.23v at full load on all 4 cores. Well speaks for it self. Posts at 3.84Ghz but won't load windows due to memory Kingston T1 PC8500 (1066Mhz) not being stable at 900Mhz and won't post at all at 1000 even at stock FSB of 333. So memory is being RMA'd at the suggestion of a level 2 Kingston Tech.

    UPDATE Still can't run @ PC8500
    But can get to 900Mhz @ 4-4-4-12 2.2v CPU @ 3.84Ghz 1.3v full load
    Which Requires setting CPU at 1.45v in bios with out any voltage Mods on vrm!

    I am having trouble finding a memory_sizing that will work with our board. ASUS P5B-Deluxe is the sister board to the commando with a slightly different layout and supports Kingston HyperX PC8500 through over clock. Updated bios to P5b memory table and flashed but no boot had to spi flash back Original working modded bios.
    Newer ASUS DDR2 boards have better memory tables but I don't do HEX editing. Need to merge them so if you can help let me know?

    I have not been able to find a solution to the traffic problem and no one seems to want to help that knows how too, So for now I am running my 5-5-5-18 memory at 4-4-4-12 to get some benefit of the faster memory.
