Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L Thread - Page 183

post #1821 of 4644
Ok, I need some advice.

I'm trying to hit 3 ghz on my e4500

It's stable at 264 fsb x 11 = 2.904 Ghz

When I bump it to 267, it fails Orthos at around the 9 min mark.

I have Vcore set at 1.35. After Vdrop, the voltage is at 1.312.

My DDRV is +.3 so it's around 2.1

It shouldn't take alot of power to get to 3 Ghz. What should I do?

From what I have seen with this motherboard is that under heavy load the voltage drops significantly. Another point is that the voltage settings in the bios are not an accurate setting at all. It would be so simple to go in and set it for 1.45v and that is what you got. Not here, you'll get around 1.35 or so depending on your hardware and psu.

What I have done is aim a little higher than I should need and then fire it up and run Orthos small fft's level 9 for 10-15 minutes and then go back to bios and knock the voltages down 2 levels and repeat. Once I see an unstable boot or crash during Orthos then I go back and bump it up and run my longer testing.

I also never rely on blend settings when testing the voltage because you won't be sure if it is the memory or cpu that caused the crash. Use the DOS version of Memtest86+ burned to a cd and boot that up just to test your memory.

Using these methods has saved me a LOT of time that I previously wasted waiting those 6-8 hours for a stable check. It has also helped my OC with a lower and stable voltage setting that blend will crash. You will rarely put your CPU under the kind of load that blend will do so it is kind of overkill.

Heh, well, I asked you a picture from Core Temp, the software. That application also shows (if you have EIST and Thermal Monitor disabled in the BIOS) VID of your CPU correctly. VID (most of the time) is a good indicator of how good for overclocking is your processor.

Quite Wierd but my board P35-DS3L Revision 2.0 Under volts ram alot.

To get to 2.2v for my ballistix it took +0.6

at +0.4 it was at 2.03 According to Everest and HW monitor

Very wierd..

However at +0.4 Passed Memtest no problems at 1111mhz at 5-5-5-15-2T.

So i guessing just a wrong Sensor maybe.

For instance, the only thing I did to get it to 3.0 GHz was to set "CPU Host Frequency (MHz)" to 333. All voltages are set to "Normal", except for the "DDR2 OverVoltage Control", pretty much like you did. Remember to also set "PCI Express Frequency (MHz)" to 100, just to be safe. Oh, and of course disable both Thermal Monitor and EIST. I left C1E enabled, since that didn't affect my performance or stability, and it reduces heat and load on my CPU when it is idle.

Good luck!
I would not disable thermal monitor. This is supposed to protect your CPU.

You will want to run in 1:1 first and get a stable CPU and then start overclocking your ram if you want.

Go to MB Tweaker in the BIOS and go to SPD multiplier. Set the value to 2.0.. oddly the numbers are not in a logical increasing order. 2.0 is in the midddle somewhere... you'll see what I'm talking about.

Hi everyone, I'm @ work so sorry if this is too little info provided - let me know I'll do my best to provide better info. My current setup this is in regards to is my main system below.

Pretty much I just got an e8400 yesterday to replace my e2180. My e2180 could OC easily to 3.33ghz with a minimal up in voltage. Now that I'm trying to go higher than my motherboard's rated 1333mhz FSB I'm running into issues.

I can take the e8400 to 400x9 = 3.6ghz no problem I am currently running orthos, it was at 9 hours stable when i left for work this morning. At this speed my ram runs 1:1 @ 800mhz.

If I try 420x9 I can make it into windows but orthos fails within minutes. I've tried loosening my ram timings to 5-5-5-15 and even 6-6-7-25 to get some sort of stability. I've also tried upping the voltage to 2.2V.

I'm fairly convinced my ram is holding me back - not my motherboard. But I guess I want to be sure before I go buy new RAM.

So I guess my question is to anyone with an e8400 and our great motherboard - what kind of RAM are you using - I'm probably just going to grab a 2gb kit of 1066mhz ram to prevent it hindering my overclock.

If you have ddr800 ram, it would probably be able to do 420mhz.

1. Try changing your multi to 8 and running Orthos.

Won't that just lower me down to 3.2ghz with the same ram / fsb speeds? Just wondering why you're suggesting that.

I agree - I've read other reviews of the kit I have and most can run at least up to ~850mhz. Mine can't seem to be stable above 810mhz - no matter what timings / voltage I try.

I'm about to try throwing in an older OCZ kit I have - its the Platinum 1GB kit. It's half the size but I've overclocked it to 900mhz in a couple other systems no problem.
