Yep, that's right, the vDroop is still a problem with this motherboard. The only thing I've noticed about this new BIOS version is that you can use fractional multipliers. For example: 6.5, 7.5, 8.5, etc. Nice addition, but yeah, it's a shame vDroop is not their concern...

Just wanted everyone using this board to know that I got mine working after RMAing the first board because it killed itself and that Ballistix Tracers are not the best compatible ram to use on this board. I just swapped my ballistix tracers 1066MHz 5-5-5-15's for Kingston 1000 MHz 5-5-5-15's which run on tighter subtimings. SO in a sense, I didn't lose any performance because my subtimings are soooo much better. So far, these kingstons are working great.

That's about US$50.... That's a lot more if you ask me. You're getting into a different range of mobo's. I would consider the DS3L a budget board, and that more of a midrange. If you want to compare to a Gigabyte P35 in that range, look at the DS3R or something more comparable in price.

So, is this a fact or not? I checked the voltages with other programs, and they were the same as the motherboard. I'll contact Gigabyte about this, just in case.

Well, I did try something first:

I ran Prime95 in Small FFTs at default speed (2400 MHz, 266x9), with C1E, Thermal Monitor, and EIST disabled, and memory running in «Auto» and «Normal» voltage, and it passed. The memories said 450 MHz, 5-6-6-17, and 1.8v, according to CPU-Z. I then tried 2700 MHz (300x9), with the same settings, and again, everything worked flawlessly (that means eight whole hours). As soon as I get my new case and cooling system going, I'll try with the memories running at 4-4-4-10, 400 MHz, 2.0v.

Oh, and by the way, at both, default and overclocked speeds, idle voltage was 1.184v, and load 1.152v.

See you around.

Guys help! My mobo (P35-DS3L) won't make any changes I make on the BIOS! I'm trying to overclock and everything was going allright. I was stable at 2.7GHz. Then tried to go higher and last thing I did before it wouldn't make any changes was raise the CPU voltage to 1.5V...

I've tried with C1E, EIST and SmartFAN all turned on and I've tried turned off and nothing.

Just wondering for anyone who updated to F8b bios with E8400, are you guys getting the correct temperature reading or is it still off?

As for one of the previous posters, my board can use the pc8500 tracers right out of box, so I guess it can readily use PC8500. Hope it answers your question.

I didn't know they released a new bios, I will upgrade tonight when i get home from work and let you know.

Well, I managed to answer my own question about memory timings; I realized that if I got off my butt, downloaded Memset, and compared the numbers I would be able to figure out what all the things were. I'll post the full list for reference when I get home tonight. My OCing is not proceeding to any effect, unfortunately, my memory is fully stable at 1066 on a 5:8 divider but if I raise the FSB everything goes to pot no matter what I do. I'm stable at 333 FSB, but 340 drives the poor computer crazy. I tried 400x6, 2.4 Ghz, 1:1 DDR2 800 at my relaxed 1066 timings and that caused massive errors loading drivers in Windows.

Ugh. First OC's are more difficult than Advertised! Not giving up though. Going to try relaxing the secondary memory timings a bit. Probably going to try Memtest as well to see if it's a problem with that, and update to the F8b BIOS from F8a.

Hi all, thought I'd give you an update. By pushing the voltage all the way up to 1.51875 in bios (1.488 cpuz/1.456 load) I managed to push to 3GHz. So right now I'm running at 9x333 and 1/1. I do have a couple of quick questions though.
-Can I safely push the bios voltage past 1.5, so that the cpuz non load voltage is at 1.5 to try to push further?
-Can anyone think of any way for me to push my cpu a little higher without so much VC? (NP2H mentioned that he thought my memory was holding me back, they're DHN9Ls by crucial, running stock volts / timings 5-5-5-15, is that really the possible answer here? They're one pass of memtest stabe, I'll have to run it more later)
-Is there a way for me to change the command rate on the RAM on this board?

Thanks!
