P35 E6600 AIR OC Comparison - Asus - Gigabyte - Page 3

post #21 of 32
@Audi

so how's the oc going with the gigabyte DQ6? I thought this board ran cooler than the ASUS but recently I read that ASUS puts the temp monitors right next to the hot parts of the board for 'better' measurement. so maybe the higher ASUS temps really are just the same in the gigabyte, just not being measured. That may be why people are finding the GB board runs 'cooler'. I guess a laser thermometer is the only real way to tell. I dont think the ASUS board was measured with that though.

Hey kiddies:

I got my new toys in today. E6600, Zalman Northbridge Cooler and the Silverstone FM121. My Side of the testing begins tonight!

First setup will be number 1:

E6600 L646G
Gigabyte p35 DS3p board
2gigs of G.Skill 800

Bwana- I got the P35 DS3P and will know soon enough.

So I know you are probably knee deep in overclocking right now. What cooking?

My CPU! That's what! I think I put too much AS5 on again! But you're absolutely right: I'm GRINDING for the sake of the community!

Light taste: The DS3P Loads up, with all stock bios settings, at 1.31v in Everest. I wonder why yours does 1.24v! Reseating right now.

Good questions, not realy sure. Each manufacturer may have there own set of rules they follow for what they consider stock/auto settings on different chips. Have you checked your ambient temps yet. I would assume they are a bit higher than mine since I keep my home office right around 70F.

Update to post 2 to TEST 1. Says it all:

The DS3P Wants to put voltages at 1.31v and I'm not changing them for this thread. I'll report temps in my own thread as this is the baseline for each board.

Asus seems to handle stock much more efficiently than the DS3! Nice!

I may just be that Gigabyte uses a bit higher stock voltage, which would account for you bit higher temps. Did you get an ambient yet. If mine are lower, my temps should be lower by close to that amount as well.

Yeah it's the vCore I'm sure. I'll try to knock it down and post results in my other thread as I think that's only fair. Unless you agree otherwise?

And I forgot to post my Ambient! Let me go back and do that!

CPU Voltage Control 1.XXXXXV

DS3P Bios settings breakdown-- New settings from 965P DS3 to p35 DS3p


1) HIGH SPEED DRAM DLL SETTINGS

With this, you get an Option 1 and Option 2. The Bios tells you that if one doesn't work when OCing your ram, then try option two. It's pretty nuts that the bios text actually says OVERCLOCKING; Gigabyte knows it's market!

2) PERFORMANCE ENHANCE

Three different levels of performance, they needed a fourth: DISABLE. I don't know WHAT this is doing but I don't like it. You get STANDARD (Which is what I leave it on), TURBO, and EXTREME. I bet this really screws up a good OC! Standard, I hope, is like turning it off.

3) SYSTEM VOLTAGE CONTROL TWEAKS!!!

This is pretty exciting and I'll go down the list

DDR2 OverVoltages: Increase by .05 from Normal - 1.55v! Good gahd! So instead of having to leap an entire .10v, they've given you the option to see if just .05v will do the trick! Nice!

PCI-E OverVoltages: Same deal as the DDR2. .05 increases ranging from Normal (1.8v)v-0.35v

FSB OverVoltages: A recurring pattern! From Normal - +0.35V

MCH OverVoltages: The pattern is broken... in a good way! +0.025 increases! From NORMAL - +0.375. I like this!

CPU Voltage Control: Lots more voltage settings from the stanard lows to 2.35000V. Flames anyone?

I'm currently searching for the best stable 3.375 to match Knitelife's OC. Be back soon!

Sadly! I won't be seeing Knitelife's 3.9Ghz!

This E6600 Week is too voltage hungry and I can barely even get into windows at 3.7Ghz.

So my broken leg is the CPU, in this test. =( However I'll still be doing temperature runs with the Enzotech based on Voltages and HSF setups.

Sorry folks! When the Q6600's hit we'll probably have more stuff up.

I gotta say, that E6600 is impressive as hell. I can't believe how well it handles voltages, man. That's easily a 4ghz on Air CPU Knitelife has and would love to have the damned thing! I might have to trade + Cash for it.

HMMMM. xD What d'ya say?
