Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L Thread - Page 188

post #1871 of 4644
Hello All,

I am having an issue overclocking my PC. The issue I am having is that when I change the FSB in the bios it is ignored upon reboot - no matter what I set it to - my bios keeps it in memory along with all other changes, but on bootscreen and in Windows (cpu-z) it stays at the stock FSB setting. My Multiplier is set at 9 (my max multiplier setting) - if I change it to 8 it does change on boot - and in windows - but my FSB setting remains at default (no matter what I set it at in Bios) so I only get 2.133ghz (down from 2.4ghz) processor.

I Disabled: EIST, C1 and the thermal monitor and the legacy USB settings
Multiplier at x9
FSB manual and I have tried many but want to get 356 to work for 3.2ghz
(currently no change is seen at any FSB setting I put in, even +1 from default)
I set my Ram timings to 5-5-5-18
Memory Multiplier of 2 (1:1)
Increased Voltage to memory +0.2 volts
+0.1 volts to everything else
VCORE 1.3875 (just to give it a bit more juice)
Set the PCI-E to 100

I have the F8a Bios (had F7 but updated it to try to fix the issue - no change)


This is my setup:

Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L
Processor: Intel Q6600 w G0 Stepping 2.4ghz
Graphics Card: XFX PVT84JUDD3 GeForce 8600GT
Memory: CORSAIR 4GB(2 x 2GB) DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X4096-6400C5
Cooling: ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED CPU Cooler


Any help would be greatly appreciated - I have tried everything I can find.
Thanks

Hey I built a PC with this motherboard in it a few days ago... Q6600 Quad, 8800GTS, Geil 2GB 6400 800mhz ram. Everything was running fine, and I decided to overclock my memory. I had already changed from stock timings from 5-5-5-15 at 1.8v to 4-4-4-12 at 1.8v, and I tried to up the SPD from 800MHZ to almost 900MHZ. I saved the settings and the computer shut off as it usually does when something like that in the Bios is adjusted, and then it powered back on. When it powers on I get 1 beep (About 1.5 seconds long, a bit longer than that short one that usually comes up) and I get no video display or anything. I've taken out the video card, and still get that beep. When I take out the ram, I get 2 beeps. I've reseated the processer and everything trying to figure out what this could be. I've already taken out the motherboard battery and put a jumper on the CMOS pins in hopes to reset the Bios to factory default so all the overclock would be back to normal, and it still gives me the single beep with no video display when it tries to boot. I believe it's either the motherboard or the ram causing this.

I've already submitted an RMA at newegg and will get a full refund when I ship my motherboard back to them, and I've ordered a new one of the same make/model which should come Wednesday, and I'm thinking about doing this for the ram too. You'd think that resetting my Bios to factory defaults would solve this because the ram would be back at stock settings. Can anyone help?

ur ram is fine the 2 beeps is from incorrect memory timings, try uping the voltage on your ram and then it should run fine

The problem is, I can't even get a display on my screen to boot into BIOs, the motherboard isn't POSTing at all, it just keeps me one long beep when I start it up and that's it, so I can't do anything in the bios settings. I've tried resetting the CMOS to factory but it still doesn't work. If you think it's not the ram, then maybe it's the motherboard. I'm going to best buy tomorrow and buying new ram to see if it works, if not I'll return it... and even if it does I'll still return it and buy new ram cheaper from newegg. Any other thoughts from anyone?

Alright, so I went to best buy today and bought a new stick of ram and it's doing the same thing as my other ram did, so it's definitely not the ram causing this problem, it must be the motherboard. Any other help would be appreciated if anyone had any other suggestions. Thanks.

before u went to best buy i wouldve told u to try one stick of ram (if u had 2, because 1 might be bad). it must be your motherboard just RMA it. believe me these come out bad quite a bit.

Yeah I did try one at a time.. I still have my Geil 2 gigs (1gbx2) of ram, and that's what I tried 1 at a time, but it still doesn't work.. and the new one I got from best buy (Which will be returned) didn't work either,so it has to be my motherboard.

I was also curious as to knowing what settings you did to make your ram 991 mhz. My motherboard stopped working and started giving me all these errors when I tried messing with the SPD for the memory. I left my CPU at stock settings, and changed the memory to 3.2 I believe which wasn't even 900mhz.. something like 896mhz or something and then when I rebooted it started giving me that single beep I was talking about. So I was wondering what settings you used to get yours to run that way. I can't remember if I left my ram voltage at 1.8 or upped it to 2.0

my gskill are amazing and they run at 1036 but i dropped it to 991 5-5-5-15 because it was only like 4 hours stable on prime95. i set my Ram voltage to +4 or +5 i believe but after the voltage drop its only like 2.18idle and 2.14 load. my settings are 413fsb 8x multiplier and 2.4 or 2.5 ram multiplier. hope it helps and gl with ur new board when u get it.

How can i unlink my memory ? I know "crtl+f1" , but there is no option like "unlink" just timings options.

ps: sorry for my bad english
