Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L Thread - Page 21

post #201 of 4644
Mine came with the F5 bios about a month ago. So they should be shipping with the latest BIOS. And since F6 is out suppliers should be getting or have these boards to support 45nm.

this may be a noob question, but I'm really hoping someone here can help me. I have the Gigabyte P35-DS3L and a Q6600. I've been having trouble getting it to run @ 3.4GHz stable. What I've noticed is that when looking at the cpu voltage in cpu-z the voltage never increases regardless of what I set it at. I may be a noob, but I'm not a complete idiot. I've made sure that the voltage control is set to manual not auto (though it doesn't change with auto either). Does cpu-z accurately display the cpu voltage? Is there something I'm missing in the bios? I'm kinda at a loss so any help would be appreciated, thanks.

I went out and bought a Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme and it sits in the box mocking me because I can't OC. Dark times, my friends. Any help is appreciated. What kind of M.I.T. settings are you people using to OC?

Thanks,
Rick

This is what I'm using for my brother's PC. He has an E6600 with a x9 multi. I didnt push it to the limits by any means, but it should help you get started:

The OCing features are in MB Intelligent Tweaker(M.I.T.) option.


CPU Host Clock Control - enable
CPU Host Frequency (Mhz) - set to 380
PCI Express Frequency (Mhz) - Set to 100 (this is the deafult for the video card)
System Memory Multiplier (SPD) - change the multi until it says 800 (what ram is rated to)

Then move down to System Voltage Control:
DDR2 OverVoltage Control - +0.2v (this is if your ram is rated for 2.0v, the default for the board is 1.8v)
FSB OverVoltage Control - +0.2v (you might not need to increase this, but at 400 FSB, it will ensure stability)
(G)MCH OverVoltage Control - +0.2 (you might not need to increase this, but at 400 FSB, it will ensure stability)
CPU Voltage Control - 1.35v (if it is stable, try lowering it until it becomes unstable, then bring it back up 2 notches.

Good Luck

Oh yeah, if you hit the [Ctrl + F1], you can change the memory timings to match the manufacturer's specs if not already set.

Great Tips! , I just ordered mine this morning from newegg , hope i can overclock my E2180 to 3.0 Ghz with stock cooling or ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro.

P.S. Anyone got to 3.0Ghz with stock cooling?

It stands to complicate my upgrade if I have to figure out a way to flash my motherboard before installing the CPU, I don't exactly have a 65nm C2D just laying around, waiting to be thrown in for the sake of upgrading the bios.

Advice?
If I were you, I'd go ahead and order the mobo, and if it doesn't work with the new proc, complain directly to Gigabyte tech support. Explain what processor you have and why it is highly likely that the BIOS just needs to be updated. They'll either have you RMA it or send you a new BIOS chip, and you can just replace the old one. Shouldn't be too much of a hassle, other than waiting a few extra days to get it all put together.

Likely it's because of the horrible vdroop on this board. What voltages have you tried with what result in CPU-Z? CPU-Z will show the actual voltage. I know that with my processor, if I set it anywhere between 1.26v and 1.35v, it actually gets 1.26v according to CPU-Z. Above 1.35v, and it starts raising about as much as I raise it, so it's always around .1v lower than what I set in the BIOS. Hope that helps, but please give a little more information about what voltages you're trying to run.

Nope, but it might be possible. You just will probably be getting into the upper 60's with the stock cooler though. I believe the 2180's are good to 71c, so that'd still be ok. Not optimal for sure.

I've got mine going at 3.4 GHz now with this board. My cpu-z is in the sig. Here is a thumbnail I took.

Disabling all the power saving features that lower your voltage/core clock speed will probably lessen the amount of vdroop. My voltage is at 1.325, before turning off the power saving features CPU-Z was showing 1.12V, now its showing 1.296V

By the way, I've already gotten my E2180 to 3.0GHz at stock voltage, Arctic Freezer cooling. Idle temps are in low 20s, full load at mid 40s. I'll try to push it to 3.3GHz or more. Be prepared to add another line on the successful overclocks list for me!

First off, here's my setup:

E6750
GA-P35-DS3L
2GB (2x1gb) G.Skill 800


I had an 80GB HD for my main drive running Vista.

I had been running a good overclock with the old HD installed. Had the 6750 at 3.6 ghz (450 FSB x 7 - 1.4volts ~36 degrees under idle ~46 under load - 1:1 DDR2 settings - and +.3volts on the DDR2)

It would post just fine and tell me the memory was running at 900mhz. I ran it like that for two weeks.

I was running out of room so I ordered a 250GB and dropped it in and installed Vista on it. Left the 80GB in there and didn't format it. Just transfered files from the old to the new.

As soon as I started booting the new HD my overclock settings in BIOS disappeared. I had them written down so I just entered them back in exactly how I had them before. Now, whenever I boot with any sort of multiplier change or FSB change (other than stock), the memory boots at 667mhz and the CPU is downclocked to 2.3ghz from the 2.6ghz stock. If I clear the overclock settings in BIOS it will boot at 800mhz memory and 2.6ghz CPU.

I ran memtest last night for 6 hours and didn't have a single error.

update: Just updated the BIOS and cleared the CMOS and it still always reverts to 333x7 when I try to overclock....
