Gigabyte G33M-S2L reverting to stock settings

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I have this motherboard Gigaybte Gigabyte G33M-S2L
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6813128085

this processor Dual Core E2200@2.2GHz
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6819116063

this RAM 2x (2x1GB dual channel sets) = 4GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6820227139
and http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6820231098



I have tried just moderately OC to ~2.6GHZ, by setting the FSB to 240 from default 200 and then changing the System Memory Multiplier to 3.33 to give the 800 for the DDR2 800 RAM.
CPU clock ratio is kept at default 11x (the highest)
Also, not sure how much of an issue this is, but the RAM has different timings
5-5-5-15 and 4-4-4-15, respectively. RAM timings were left on auto.

The problem is that after saving and exiting bios, the computer reboots and goes back to the stock settings.

Any suggestions? Am I not doing something that I should be doing?

Thanks

I've tried tinkering with different settings. I can change the voltage all the way up to 1.4V (default 1.325V) and it's fine. I can also change the system memory multiplier, and it works. Right now the RAM is at 5-5-5-15 and 1.9V stable.

It's just if I change the FSB, even by a tiny bit, like up to 210MHz from 200, after F10 save/exit, it restarts with default settings, and I can't figure out why. It feels like there's some setting that I'm missing

I have tried booting with just one set of RAM as well (at various settings), and had the same exact problem.
I switched in this set
Corsair XMS2 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6820145184


for the other two sets, because I figured that having 2 different sets with 2 different timings might be making it unstable, but switching doesn't seem to have changed anything.


It is just frustrating because just switching the FSB from 200 to 210 will cause it to reset .
