Yeah its kinda normal. Its usually because only the center of the heatsink is sitting on the chip, so there is room to "rock around". Also the pushpins in place have coils/springs which add flexibility.

I'm about to take my mb out and install a cpu cooler and one for the NB, would I benefit from taking the SB heat sink off and applying some AS5 to that as well?

Don't think the SB gets hot enough to warrant applying AS5. I'm sure it will be fine

On another note, my P35 from Ebay is not POSTing. I'm currently very *profanity* off

Lets see what I can find on the internet...

I was not aware there where any sensors on the nb or the sb for temps

Well, I don't think there are, at least not independently. If you check a software like SpeedFan, you'll see there is a motherboard temperature, but I think that's the average temperature between both the north and south bridges.

I'm thinking of purchasing one of these boards only if it plays nice with a brand new installation of CentOS5. Does anyone have any experience with it?

Hey guy's, i'm another ga p35 ds3 owner and i got a couple questions which i'm sure you's can help me out with and i apologize for the long post.

So i've been holding out oc'ing 4 a while for fear of fryijng something but after thouroughly going through around 3 or 4 different guides, i learn't that that type of stuff usually occurs if u play around with voltages and what not so yeah.. i only wanted to oc a little, just to get an idea of what the go is so figured should be ok.

My specs are as follows..

ga p35 ds3
q6600 (Stock Cooler)
2 x 1gb corsair XMS2- cm2x1024 6400 (800mz)
8800gtx
antec 900 case (extra side intake)
coolermaster 550w

Ok, so the first thing i noticed when i entered bios was that the cpu was set at 200 x 9. I have no i idea why this was set like this when it's supposed to be 266 x 9 for 2.4 gz yeah.
Anyhow, i went about doing all the basics first
Disabling of certain things and all that. SpeedStep, C1E, VGA enhancers etc.

So now i figured i was ready. First thing i did was change the RAM multiplier to 2x.
And then started upping the fsb. I kept jacking it up + checking stability, (cpu-burn in), and checking temps (coretemp), and also becnhmarking with sandra.

So, i get up to 290mz (2.6gz) and at this stage after running the burn in for 15 mins i noticed the temps in coretemp would hit as far as 68c at times so i figured i stop there.
(Quick side note btw.. i'm not sure whether i should be going by the speedfan temp or the coretemp ones cause in speedfan it's pretty low actually, between 40 and 50 on load. I just went by coretemp just to be safe.)

So this is where i start to get confused. It's mainly about configuring the memory. As i stated b4 i had set mem multiplier to 2x and at 290 fsb, i was getting 580mz for memory.
I just assumed this was low, considerning it's 800mz RAM and upped it to 3.0 and now i'm getting 870mz.
(No idea if what i did is correct btw but when i benchmarked the memory bandwidth afterwards i got better results so figured i did it right.

Also, i should note that the timings were set at 5-5-5-18 (Auto). On the actual sticks it sais 5-5-5-12 so i changed it.
But then i checked corsair website and it sais 5-5-5-18. Confused me a bit but i've left it at 5-5-5-12 cause i read somewhere lower means better.

I wish i could put up cpu-z pic but not sure how. Anhow, under memory, i'm getting a 2:3 fsb:dram ratio, so not sure about that.
Also under SPD, the two rows have..

Frequency 270mz 400mz
CAS 4.0 5.0
RAS to CAS 4 5
RAS Precharge 4 5
tRAS 13 18
trc 15 22

So yeah, that's about it. I just thought i should have gotten a little more than 2.6gz even though i have pretty much a stock system but then again i'm pretty sure i'm doing something wrong


I'm Very, Very sorry for the long post but i just figured it's better to be thorough.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thx heaps guys.

I'm not sure what your question is. More VCORE means higher temps, which you need for increasing the clock speed on the processor. Lower numbers for memory timings are better.
