DS3 Users, F6 BIOS improves Allendale OC

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
New BIOS released yesterday for the GA-965P-DS3, F6.

The sidenote says....
"1. Enhance Conroe E6300/E6400 overclock capability"

I just updated my BIOS to F6, and I am still stable at 400FSB.

Dont you just love how Gigabyte are so vague "1. Enhance Conroe E6300/E6400 overclock capability" Yes nice Gigabyte but how why what.

Unless I know whats been added is there any point in updating... I mean 400FSB was fine and Im on F4E BIOS which was a BETA.

They really should state in a log whats been added improved etc etc but well I cant find info anywhere asto what its supposed to change accomplish.

I have contacted Gigabyte asking for a log of whats been changed for the improvement in E6300/6400 overclocking.

So maybe tomorrow I will have something to post up.

ckp64 - Since your using F6 is there anything different in BIOS new settings higher rating for voltages etc etc... Just anything really?

Gigabyte think thats Enhanced Conroe overclocking... Yeah they have lost it.
Highest I think anyones gonna use on FSB is about 500ish or a tad more.

Would love to see someone use all 700Mhz FSB x 7 since thats the lowest multi on E6400.

"FSB can now be set up to 700FSB."

I have F4 and I think it says 100-700 FSB anyways. Where did you see that this is new?

LOL

Agreed.

Allowing the option of something no one can use is not an increase. there has to be more to this BIOS than just that........right?

I wouldnt upgrade my bios. Everything is stable and running perfectly at 2.89 with stock cooling.
I have F4 and the only thing limmiting me from Ocing more is my cooling.

Zalman 9500 on the way.
