I bought an ASUS P4P800-E Deluxe, Intel P4 3.0 GHz Boxed (Intel fan), 2 x
512MB Kingston RAM 400 MHz CL 2.5 and an Enermax Coolergiant ATX 12V V1.3
Plus power supply. It works great and is stable with standard BIOS
settings. But I have 2 small problems.

First Problem: The BIOS (1002 BETA, the newest, I think, but didn't updated
it) has a little bug. When I go to "Power"/"Hardware Monitor" settings, it
stucks. Only after long time waiting and much patience I can change options
and leave the BIOS.
The power fan display is red and it shows about 1700 rpm. I think, when the
power fan drops below 2000, the BIOS stuck.
Did someone know a newer BIOS or other solution for this problem?

Second Problem: When I change the memory acceleration mode
("Advanced"/"Advanced Chipset Settings") to enabled, save and leave BIOS,
it didn't reboot. Screen is black and nothing happens. Only clearing cmos
to delete BIOS settings is the solution. Same happens, when I set the
Performance Mode ("Advanced"/"Configure System Frequency/Voltage") to
Turbo.
Is this a problem with the good Kingston RAM? Someone knows a solution?

Latest I know is 1004e_01.zip, no probs here.

The fan speed is controlled by voltage, just change from 11/16 to an
higher value for the qfan utility (depends on your fan, for me it is 12/16).

Just power off and wait a moment.

No there is no problem with your ram, just switch to standard instead of
auto what will enable performance mode. There are severall reviews with
details (give google a try).
You may verify your setting with tools like everest, ctiaw, cpuiz (all
freeware).

The only thing I would add to this, is "Turbo" sets the memory to
2-2-2 timings, which is very aggressive. If you have Corsair 3200XL,
Ballistix, etc, those memories could use Turbo and the motherboard
would boot. For "ordinary" RAM (the kind I can afford), stay
away from Turbo.

If doing performance adjustments, setting the memory timings and
speed manually, is the way to go. The tools Niclaas mentions
are indispensible for making and observing such adjustments.
CTIAW, for example, will show you whether you are getting the
equivalent of PAT enabled or not.

You can search for CTIAW on abxzone, and see people using it,
and doing experiments on their motherboards.

There is a picture of the output of CTIAW in this thread:

You could try flashing up the BIOS, and see if your power
monitor situation improves. If it does not, it could be
that the power monitor chip or the SMBUS are defective,
in which case, if the board is a recent purchase, you
might want to return the board to your retailer before the
initial return period allowed has expired.

Where can I get the newest BIOS? Searched the web, but didn't find it.
Newest BIOS for P4P800-E Deluxe is 1002.002 BETA.

Did Q-fan sets all the fan speeds? I thought Q-fan only controls the cpu fan
speed.

It controlls the cpu fan. If another fan shows low speed, just ignore
it. Likely it`s running at low speed but within specs. That will of
course not affect your bios.

On this side the dlx is not seperately listed and you may ask your
flashutil, it checks it for you. If you use the "asusupdate" it won`t
even try to flash if there is a mismatch. In case you fell unsure about
flashing: first save your bios to a file. After this apply the new bios,
restart. You will be forced to go into the biossetting screens. Apply
default settings, change the setting to your preferred values, boot into
OS. That`s it. In case you suffer from a power outage, use the fallback
bios of your board.

Use the ASUS update tool and go to the German ASUS site, 1004xxx is there.
