System Voltage Control [Auto]
DDR2 OverVoltage Control Normal
PCI-E OverVoltage Control Normal
FSB OverVoltage Control Normal
(G)MCH OverVoltage Control Normal
CPU Voltage Control 1.XXXXXV
Normal CPU Vcore 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?
Does your BIOS look like that? Have you tried changing the Performance Enhance to Standard if so?

Really sucks that the board won't stabilize with similar or better settings.

Hey Fishie nice build you got there. Very good cable management and all.

One thing I would do personally is use a little less as5 but thats just me. I like to use as little as possible, but then again I would have allready changed out the NB tim also and lapped that cpu. Ofcourse when I brake something I never get any money back( I wonder why that is).

One idea for the mobo try just getting your ram 1:1 for now and when you oc dont use as much NB voltage as you would with your ds3. These chipsets require far less VMCH and CPU VTT then the 965 counter part. Unless you have a rare 965.

Also another thing to try is disabling ALL the cpu options. Just give it a gander and see what happens.

I was wondering the same thing.....That is an awful lot of AS5.

Holy crap YES! Dude, I'll take a picture of the freaking RUG of TIM that Gigabyte has on the NB cooling!!! It's disgusting! I could literally peel it all off in one go and flop it around!

It looks very similar. It's basically exactly the same as my DS3 with a few extra settings. I think my biggest problem is my memory subtimings. I have no idea what to put them at so I tried both auto and by the SPD. Auto lets me overclock very well and when I do it manually I can't even break 350fsb or set ram dividers.

And yeah, performance enhance is standard. That's one of the first things I set

Thanks, I needed that tip. When stuff wasn't working I immediately started pumping the NB volts, now I know why it didn't help

I read the guide on the official site... it's exactly how they say to do it. Plus temps are great.

This is definitely a possibility. Unfortunately, we're linked as far as memory and FSB goes. We're forced to adhere, with Gigabyte boards/BIOS, to certain memory multi's that are probably hindering the overclocks. That's just me being a newb and speculating, though.

I've noticed when I shove Auto on as far as Memory is concerned, I've been able to POST and see Windows, although instability when Orthos hits.

I'm going home to screw with my new Memory and I'll PM ya with findings @ 2 Gigs and OCing.

Again, your rig is crazy clean and I wish I had cable management like that!

Jesus Tapdancing Christ! Nice build! ;D
That motherboard is amazing looking, same with the RAM! Good I sound like such a geek now.

Also great cable management and just great PC overall. Looks great! I really need to spend some time cleaning my cables etc. when I build my new PC.
