Here is my current setup. I have all my BIOS settings set to auto for voltages and such. The only values I have changed are the FSB (400) and setting the memory multiplier to 2.00.

Click here for Cpuz/Coretemp/Hwmonitor at Idle

When I run Prime 95, temps go up to around 60-64C. I just reapplied (by spreading out, not doing a line) some Arctic Silver 5 on my Q9450. On top is a Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme with a Sythe S-Flex 120mm fan. Does this temperature seem high, even thought it is at 1.3v? (I also have to allow time for the paste to cure, so it should come down a bit)

Also in the box:

Antec 900
Samsung DVD Burner
EVGA 8800 GTS 512mb
2x2GB Mushkin DDR2 800 RAM at 5-5-5-18 1.8V
Asus Xonar DX
Corsair 520HX
WD Caviar 640GB HD

My problem is when I try to set the voltages manually, I left everything except the vcore on normal(auto). At 1.175v I was able to get the FSB up to 370, which was around 3.0ghz. When I tried to up the FSB further, I would freeze up at the Vista loading screen. Increasing the vcore to 1.3 didn't help either. When I set voltage to auto, I was able to reach 400FSB, but now I am stuck there.

I know about vdroop, but I am not sure how high I should overvolt certain components. Should I get setting the DDR, northbridge, or FSB to a certain level to achieve stability? Can I push the vcore up a bit further to account for vdroop? ( I was a bit hesitant to do this because I don't know the extent of the vdroop so I wouldn't want to put too much juice into the processor)

Thanks for any help.

Hey peeps! I'm new here and new to over clocking. I'm currently selecting a system and plan to do a little OCing with a Q6600 CPU. I want to run it at a stable 3,0 GHz (not looking to squeeze it to the bottom) and have been told this CPU should be able to handle that with no problem.

Since I'm new to this (and don't want to spend the rest of my days fussing over my PC) I'm looking for a motherboard that won't give me too many problems (setting it up etc.) I was told that de GA-P35-DS3R should fall into this category and is also affordable. The GA-P35-DS3L is even more affordable and obviously I want to save money if possible but don't want an unstable machine because of it. I'm also looking at the EP35-DS3 but have heard that this one has problems OCing.
So does anybody here know how these boards compare to oneanother in terms of OCing? I would very much like to know! Thanx!!

Edit:... hmm.. maybe I should start a new thread?

Hi,

I posted in this thread because I believe that I need to adjust settings pertaining to my P35-DS3L motherboard. I've looked around for advice on other forums, but none were specifically for my motherboard. I'm hoping someone else had the same problem and can help me adjust the BIOS settings so I can get a more stable/efficient system.

Just a quick question, im geting another 2GB of ram to take me upto 4GB, ive got my Q6600 @3.0GHz and my G.Skill Ram PC2-6400 is slightly overclocked @830MHz, will i still be alright with this overclock or will i have to take it down as ive heard 2GB systems are better for overclocking than 4GB systems.

Thanks

Hey, I just recently got this board and am in the process of installing it. I went to plug in the 4-pin power to find that my Silverstone Zeus only has an 8pin power connection that doesn't split. Does anyone know how to hook this PSU up to this board? I can't seem to get it to work out.

Does it show up as stock voltage in Windows or the BIOs? If it's Windows it's because of Vdrop. An example of Vdrop would be that you set CPU voltage to 1.5, but with 1.5v the CPU actually gets 1.43v. You are sending the CPU 1.5v, but the CPU only actually gets 1.45v of it.

Whatever it says in CPU-Z is the real thing.

Learn to manually set voltages. That's the best thing to do. It will allow you to overclock more efficiently.

Vdrop is the difference in voltages when you're idle in Windows and Vdroop is the difference when you're processor is under load. You can set the CPU voltage in the BIOs as high as you want as long as the voltage does NOT go over the maximum voltage the processor can take (see Intel website) in Windows. Use CPU-Z to check for the actual voltage. You want to worry about that voltage. Not the one in BIOs FOR THE CPU.

DDR voltage has Vdrop on this board. Check the last 2-4 pages. Me and crackzattic discussed this.

For NB, you can set it as high as you want as long as you can cool down the NB heatsink. It runs a little hot on this board. Just get a 40mm fan and slap it on top of the heatsink and you're good to go. I've used up +.2v to NB with a 40mm fan when OCing my Q6600. You shouldn't really need to use +.3v. This will add stability to an overclock.

Increase the FSB voltage by +.1v to help overclock your CPU further or stabilize it. The higher the FSB, the more you have to fine tune the FSB voltage to allow for stability.

Use CPU-Z to check your actual CPU voltage in Windows, that should give you a slight idea how much Vdrop you're getting.

Sometimes you need to increase FSB or NB voltages and not the CPU voltage to stabilize an OC.

The main components in overclocking with motherboards is mostly the NB and SB chipsets. They're both the same but with slightly different features.

If you want to get the better board, then get the EP35-DS3. If you want to save money, get the DS3L. The only difference between them is the firewire, RAID, and Ultra Durable 2 on the DS3 and a couple other differences.

They should overclock fine though. I can OC my Q6600 to 3.4Ghz (so far) on my DS3L.

If you're PSU doesn't have a 4pin power plug, then try to find out if there are 8 pin to 4 pin power cable adapters available. That or get a new PSU.

That's about right. Mines is around 12.6k with 3Ghz Q6600 and my 9600GT. 8800 should score more though, so you're good.

Whats Goin On guys , I wanna ask a question and see if anyone is experiencing anything similar. Today just got back from Dinner everything is great, Pc has been running just fine for the last month or so. No changes . My Gf brings her mothers camera to see if i can get some pictures off of it so NP. I turn on my pc and plug my own usb cable in to the pc without the camera on the other end yet , and i get the failed post bad settings dual reboot thing where it reverts the settings back to stock.

I go back into the bios set everything up as it was then reboot into windows just fine , Next i plug the camera in , My monitor turns off but the pc is still on . Crap so i have tpo turn the pc off again . Next reboot into windows find the camera and everything works flawlessly.

If i remember correctly i think i plugged in or powered on a usb drive and something similar happened a few weeks ago. Does anyone turn there pc on and basically failed to post like this but they know the settings are good?

This has only happened 2-3 times , so its not by any means an everyday event. However something i do experience a bit more often is the monitor turning off. Like when i plugged the camera in today . Also i has happened a few times whith a bit of ESD to the case , which i am surprised it is soo sensitive, so i am thinking any clue as to why its soo sensitive. My lappy has never has a problem if i pick it up and give it a jolt, figured the desktop would be even more impervious . Hit me up waith any ideas or similar scenarios if you have any. Basically i find it wierd that i had a usb cable with nothing on the end of it and turned on the pc and this happend. Maybe it had nothing to do with the usb cable being plugged in and it would have just happened anyway.

Any of you guys turned your pc on and had this happen basically out of the blue. Thanks

Just turn on the computer with as little USBs or external drives connected or have nothing connected besides the keyboard and mouse. Things like USB drives and External Hard Drives should be connected after the computer has fully loaded.

If that doesn't help then chances are that you have an unique problem.
