There are no sensor on the NB


i thought there was one?
Wow, big news to me. I've been told by several people that the NB has a sensor, and that it shows up as one of the temps in Speedfan, etc. Hmmm... how do we know how hot it is getting?

is having more OB ram (640 Vs 512) better that the new G92 chipset?

Im dazed and confused
Any board with the P35 chipset has PCI-E 2.0. This includes the DS3L.

I'm making a buddy budget online poker box and am trying to squeeze a little more out of it.

Mobo: GA-P35-DS3L
Ram: G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 1066
CPU: E4600 Allendale 2.4GHz 2MB L2 Cache
Cooler: Stock Intel
HD: Seagate 250GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb
Video Card: GeForce 7200GS 256MB 64-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16
Sound Card: Onboard
OS: XP Pro
I'd say 2.8ghz is a safer number than three, but you could probably reach 3.0 no problem with decent case cooling. Just gotta try and find out. I'm running my E4300 @ 3.15ghz on the stock cooler, but it's up around 50c idle, and 65c load. Depends on what temps you feel are "safe".

IMO, if you're building this system for your friend, I would try and convince him to buy a cooler, at least the AC7 ($19.99). It'll help a ton getting a decent OC out of that chip. On the other hand, if all he's doing is playing online poker, it should be just fine the way it is.

Anyway, I can't remember the exact model, but I used to use an Sil SATA RAID card in my rig. I think it was the 3112, but can't remember for sure. Just look for a cheaper card on newegg that has good reviews, can't go wrong with that.

Also gives you a nice little extra RAID bios separate to your main bios where you can quick format drives and set them up into which raid set up you want. Also some nice software utility's.
Good luck!
Thanks for the info, instead of getting the DS3R, I ordered the following card:

Nice, that'll be a great setup!

Actually the DS3L has PCI-E 1.1 (16x), which is backwards compatible with PCI-E 2.0. I am running a PCI-E 2.0 card on my DS3L but the board is only capable of 16x speeds.

Would increasing my pci-e speed by 5mhz to damage anything? I have an 8800gt.
post #1596 of 4644
I've always heard you are supposed to leave that locked at 100MHz. I don't know what would happen, but I would imagine nothing good... If you want to overclock it, change the speeds in Rivatuner or something, but not the bus speed.

btw, why on earth would you need to overclock a system to play poker online? Last time I checked, they weren't too graphics or processor intensive...

I stand corrected. I read somewhere that the P35 chipset always came standard with PCI-E 2.0, but I guess whoever said that was wrong.

Nope. You don't want to go more than 110mhz on the PCI-E bus though, or you'll risk data corruption on your HDDs. Also, it almost never increases performance, but go for it and see what happens.

P35 is pci-e1.1 the x38 is the first chipset with pci-e 2.0
So no p35 boards have v 2.

You sure about that?
