I bought this mobo from Intel - DX48BT2 on a Q9450 quad proc. Besides the imposibility for overclocking .. which is not the main subject, this mobo doesn't recognize the real frequency of the memory modules. I installed two modules 2x1GB 1333.. but the BIOS recognize them on auto at 1066. When i force the frequency to 1333 .. the bios calculates it's speed at 1334 .. and after reboot it stalks at a error message from bios.
I know this mobo is not for overclockers but at least i want it to work at full throotle on it's default values.
Brand/manufacturer and model of these modules ?
Please verify with CPU-Z (start program and look what's displayed at the SPD section) or similar programs your modules are real DDR3-1333 modules and not just DDR3-1066 "tuned" to run as 1333. Those "tune" are often sold by companies like OCZ.
According to the product sheet it's programmed as DDR-1333 with 9-9-9-24 timings at 1.6V. AFAIR this 1.6V standard is violating the JEDEC specifications and may explain the autodetection as 1066.
Please verify the SPD timing programming via CPU-Z. Please also try 1.6V memory supply voltage.

Setting timings at 9-9-9-24 at 1333 1.62v worked.
Thanks a lot for your time.
And another thing .. all the info I found about my mobo.. a DX48BT2 Intel Bonetrail.. didn't involve a succesful overclock on the CPU. If anybody found anything about overclocking on this mobo, please reply. Thanks a lot again for your help !
