Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L Thread - Page 178

post #1771 of 4644
There was a post wayyyy back where someone was having problems with their system resetting the OC settings (well, setting them to default but the OC values (i.e. CPU Host Frequency, PCI-E Set to Default instead of 100, etc.) would be greyed out even though completing Stable tests.

Well, this happened to me a couple of times, even though I tested Orthos stable for 2+ Hours.

The solution (according to other posts) was to set the "Halt on" to "No Errors" (default is "All but Keyboard"). I have gone ahead and implemented this fix but I need to know is this OK or am I turning off an essential fail-safe?

I'm performing a pretty mid-ranged OC:
- E4500 (2.2GHz Stock) OC'd to 3.0GHz (37% OC)
- CPU Host Frequency: Increased from 200 to 273 (x11 = 3.003GHz)
- VCore: 1.35v (going to test lower soon...anybody with the same processor able to go lower than this?)
- VDIMM: +0.4 (RAM is optimal at 2.1-2.2v, but with this increase CPU-Z & others only registers as VDIMM 2.0640v, what's that about?)
- CPU Temp: mid 40's with very short spikes into lower 50's C on full load

I had a fan on mine, but I can't get a stable position and it rattles. The sound is driving me crazy.

I'm thinking of taking it off. I'm at 450 FSB (stock volts)... so the heatsink gets hot.


How high of an FSB are you pushing?

TMPIN0 is not the Northbridge temp. If I increase load, the value stays the same....33-34

TMPIN1 increases as I increase the load. From 22 all the way to 43. But I don't think this is the northbridge temp because I have a decent size fan on my northbridge. With the fan running, the heatsink is cool but when I stop the fan, the northbridge gets almost too hot to touch. The temperature stayed the same with the fan on or off.

My hunch is that the TMPIN1 is the temp of the CPU... between the cores. There are 2 temp sensors on the cpu. 1 right at the core and another off of the core...
The bottom number is your CPU temp; the IHS sensor reading. The other temp I don't believe necessarily corresponds to anything I haven't seen an answer I trust. It is not the NB temp; I've run 200 and 450 FSB without more than a few degrees change in that temperature.

Core Temp has my core temps at 42 and SpeedFan shows 30. My BIOs temps at 30C. Which do I believe when overclocking?

Core temp!

Also try Hw monitor

For me core temp and HW monitor read same temps
post #1777 of 4644
I always trust core temp, and it's the load temp that I worry about.

My NB wasn't getting very hot but after reading about so many others having overheating problems, I decided to buy the best cooling solution since I was going to have my MoBo pulled out anyways for something else.

I bought bought a ThermalTake Extreme Spirit 2: (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835116018). A little pricey but it's the only one with an actual fan on it (the others were passive heat sinks). This thing is like a mini CPU heat sink with heat pipes & a fan on it (with blue LEDs too!).

My NB didn't drop at all (it was running at 35C anyways & probably didn't need any aftermarket cooling) but I actually saw my CPU Temp drop by 5C. I'm guessing it's because I oriented the fan to blow away from my CPU (the heat sink sits on rails and pivots, which is a pretty cool feature).

This thing is pretty big & I didn't get to point it towards my exhaust, like I wanted to but that's no big deal. I bought a 2nd one for my SouthBridge but I can't get anything to fit because of my video card, so I'm leaving the stock alone.

You can't really go wrong with this heat sink & the extra money is worth it.

Core temp and Speedfan show different things. Speedfan is showing your CPU temp; this is going to be lower than your Core Temp, especially at load. It will also be lower if you have a CPU cooler installed (of course everyone does, but it's relevant).

Coretemp is read directly off the core temp sensor, which doesn't read actual temperature. It reads "distance to throttling" with some level of accuracy. At load temperatures, the number of degrees below thermal throttling will be accurate. However, it is not necessarily true that this means it displays the correct temperatures, because Intel does not publish throttling temps for desktops. In other words, the guy who makes Coretemp just has to guess. Several people, since Penryn, have made more educated guesses, and asserted different positions on what the throttling temperatures are and/or what the biases of the temperature sensors are in different Intel steppings.

The CPU Temp is read directly off the IHS, so it should be accurate in BIOS and Windows.

Do a search for posts by unclewebb if you're -really- interested.

I recently installed a Thermaltake CL-C0034 Copper Fan&Heatsink

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835116018

It works very well and can swivel to fit around any after market cpu hsf and has a blue light. You will need to remove the motherboard to install it on the ds3l model but once it is done it's very solid. Was worth the cost as far as I was concerned. My NB never really got that hot but now I don't even have to bother monitoring it.
