Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L Thread - Page 192

post #1911 of 4644
Hi, folks.

Thanks to this thread (as well as one at Tom's Hardware), I've managed to crank this puppy up to a surprisingly nice level, at least as far as my modest expectations are concerned. I'll bet I can tweak this even better if I fully understood ALL of the settings in RAM management only available through Cntrl-F1 at the main BIOS menu.

Although there haven't been many (count.. none) major new flight sims in the past several years, this system can handle LockOn, Falcon 4.0, IL-2 and others at their absolute highest resolutions and visual options with a steady frame rate. For total immersion, this is as close as I'm gonna get for the next few years. Thanks to you guys again!

I know i said this but maybe you misunderstood, it sounds exactly like that.

Yup its enabled. This is weird ass problem. ON the one hand it boots at stock, but the bios shows different. Ive tried disabling everything in the bios thats not critical, ie: usb leagacy support, parallel, sound, lan, etc and nothin. Next ima revert back to an older bios. Hopefully i hear form Gigabyte if no ill try an rma. thanks again mang. Peace

Good glad you got it to work. Never heard of something happening exactly like that with this board. GL getting stable.

I setup my E2180 @ 3.0ghz, 333x9, save the bios, but when i try to reboot POST shows it running stock. Then i go into the BIOS to investigate and the funny thing is that all my OC settings are still set. The only solution I was able to find is to pull out the CMOS battery for a few minutes and put it back in and load my OC settings and then i can boot successfully, but I have the same problem after i shutdown and startup. Im running the latest BIOS and I just sent an email to gigabyte so whatever comes through from them ill be sure to post. Ive researched and found other threads with the same problem. So I thought i would post here (very active thread) to see if any of you have had this problem and have come up with any solutions. My next step is to RMA the mobo. Anyway, Thanks to all in advance. Peace
I actually had this happen to me today. I was running at an OC then decided to tone it down to stock and when the system shutoff for the cmos swap it hung so I had to to cut power. Came back on and everything was still set to my OC so I tried again. Rebooted fine this time but the post showed I was still in OC but going into bios had the correct settings. After 2 more reboots the post finally showed the stock changes.

I don't know if this had something to do with SP1 being installed or not. I had my UPS kick in for 10 seconds due to a minor power outage. When installing SP1 it clearly warns you not to have your UPS connected during the install so I wonder if the little power swap and then cmos change could be linked because nothing else changed on my system over the last few days and my posts were always reported correctly even after a shutdown for the night and restart.

P.S. I'm about done with trying to OC my system. I seem to get better responses from programs and bootup better in stock than pushing my chip. I just don't see any real performance to jump up and down about vs. taking away the safety of having my hardware last longer.

People are having similar issues. Different forums are posting the same thing, but with no solution. I OC 'cause its an e2180 and even though its a great value its not a top tier chip. The only reason i bought my current setup was because i already had a psu and a videocard (got for free) so this is going to hold me until i go full bore with my quad core system with a power hungy videocard which I cant wait for : ) and this e2180 will run stock as my NAS server.

I have a quick question about this board, I just got it today and was wondering how you power it on caseless, I've located the 2 power pins...so do I just put a jumper on them and cut the power supply on or what? I have Electrophobia (yes this is real) so I don't want to touch the motherboard at all when the power supply is on...and I don't feel comfortable hitting the 2 pins with a screwdriver while the power supply is on either. Thanks for the help!

you have to overcome using something conductive to short the two pins if you want to turn the pc on. Sorry, its really no big deal. you'll overcome it

you dont have to put the jumper on and leave it just a momentary closure

Alright. I cant get the front USB ports to work on th is motherboard. What gives?

I have both a 7 pin and 4 pin connector (2 diff cases) so why wont they ever work? Ive tried everything, and when I put crap into the USB ports the computer shuts off. This is lame.....................

It's called connecting the wires to the correct pins on the motherboard. Consult the manual for the correct wire color and pin location and make sure that is congruent with the pin layout of your front usb ports.
