Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L Thread - Page 145

post #1441 of 4644
OK, that makes sense. I am looking into options to keep the memory bandwidth high since I paid a little extra for the 1066. I'll keep y'all posted with my final results.

Heh, my 800MHz corsair dominators run at 1066 just fine...the only issue is that provides exactly 0 performance benefit For some reason every speed I've tried over 830MHz adds ~20ms to the latency benchmark...I blame the MCH on my P5N-E, which is one more reason I'm eyeing this board....

Incidentally - how well does 4 x 1GB RAM run in this board? There's a huge MIR on the corsairs I have, so I may pick another pair of sticks. Does running the extra RAM tend to hurt people OCing results at all?

I run 4 x 1 gb of probably the worst RAM in terms of really overclocking it. I think the best I can do is 800 with 5-5-4-15.

If it's running 667, I can do 4-4-4-12. But those are all within its ratings. Anything over 800 at most any timing and it pretty much craps out.

However, it doesn't effect any other aspect of overclocking; including stability. This also includes when I run at 400x9 = 3.6ghz.

So, even with crappy RAM (in terms of its own overclocking) the setup does fine with 4x1gb.

I will appreciate some suggestions on my OC with this board:

E2200 CPU with Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L
OCZ 2x1GB DDR2 800 4-4-4-15

Here are some settings:
Mem multiplier: 2
PCIE frequency: 100MHz,
DDR2 overvoltage: +0.3 (or +0.4)

Then I tried a whole LOT of combinations of vcore, CPU multipliers, and FSB. The best I can do is the following when I can just enter windows (didn't test the stability yet):
266MHz x 11 = 2.93GHz with 1.45 vcore with CPU temp (idle) 42 C.

This is very very frustrating. The stock speed of E2200 is 2.2Ghz. Somehow it looks like I can hardly push to 3GHz. I can't increase the FSB much. Any bus speed higher than 266MHz causes windows to freeze when booting.

Any suggestions or list of OC parameters are appreciated.

Try bumping up your vcore a few... to 1.35 or 1.375 and see if that helps.
post #1447 of 4644
his vcore is at 1.45v.

maybe MCH voltage? I dunno, I don't have this board yet

But it might not be helping that you have vdimm overvoltage set - by my count your RAM is hugely underclocked, so it shouldn't need extra voltage.

Hey Sarge

I'm building a new system based on your fav Mobo and I will report back when its complete. It will be a few weeks but its coming =).

I going with a q6600 and 4 gigs DDR 1066 ram. And it will be water cooled.

Very cool. I am looking forward to seeing pictures.

Thanks. I tried +0.1v for MCH voltage, and didn't see any obvious effect
