Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L Thread - Page 237

post #2361 of 4644
Hello Everyone,

I would like to humbly request that the overclock stats at the beginning of the page be updated with some overclock results form the newer processors, such as the Q9450, etc.
I tried to email sgt spike directly but this was prohibited.

Hi, Guys, i'm new to this forum and recently after extensive reading of many tutorials and guides on overclocking I upgraded my old amd athalon 2000+ xp cpu with 512 of ram to a intel dual core e2200 setup with 2gb mushkin ram on p35ds3l board.

I have overclocked the cpu to 3.0ghz and also the ram upto 1000mhz. The system is running super stable, orthos runs fine for over 24 hours withought any failures. I think my cpu has wall at 3.0ghz and no matter what i do, whatever settings i change i cannot seem to go higher then 3.0ghz, my original goal was 3.2ghz, i've tried different fsb, with different multipliers, also, higher voltages but it just won't go over 3.0ghz. Does this mean i got a bad chip?

Another thing i've noticed is that there is alot of vdroop on my particular board. My ddr ram voltage is set to +.3 but in hwmonitor is shows up at 2.03 and my cpu voltage is set in bios at a notch above 1.4v but shows up in hwmonitor at 1.36v, which is fine for running the cpu at 3.0ghz. Even increasing the voltages with 3.2ghz setting doesn't make any difference. I even tried upping the fsb and north bridge voltages up +.2v but nothing. I guess i'll just have to live with 3.0ghz overclock on this chip for now until i upgrade to a quad core later on.

Now, this other behaviour i'm getting from this board is that once in a while, say, every 3rd or 4th reboot from windows, the computer completely shuts off while rebooting, but turns back on, meaning it reboots fine but you could call it a hard reboot, this doesn't happen all the time only maybe after 3-5 reboots. Is this behavior normal for this board? It doesn't seem to affect my overclock or stability in windows, and it always start up again after it shuts off completely during a reboot, so i don't have to start it manually or anything. Is this normal? Also, is the vdroop too much on my board? By the way, the psu i'm using with this system is corsair 450waats vx model which is rated at 33amps on12v rail which should be sufficient enough, from what i've read on the net it's made by seasonic.

Well, I'd certainly love to do that, but I don't have a Q9450, and I haven't seen anyone here with the DS3L that does have a Q9450... If you've got one, by all means share your results!

1st suggestion - try paragraphs when writing a post.

2nd suggestion - make sure your memory multiplier is set to 2.00 when you're trying to increase your OC.

And your PSU sounds sufficient, but what graphics card are you running in that rig?

The graphics card is an asus EAH3450 with 256 ram and pci e clock is locked to 100 in bios. Is this reboot issue i'm getting normal for this boards? Thanks.

@tkl.hui - I do the clear CMOS..

I take FSB to 330, memory multiplier to 2.40 (DDR2 on 792 MHz), and CPU Voltage to 1.3625.

I restarted and its ok.. so far... will see tomorrow...

There are some changes that I made today.. Before the> Graphic booster were on Fast, I change it to Auto, and memory multiplier were on 2.50 (so it was on 825 MHz). Maybe the memory dont like to be overclocked..
I keep you posted...


p.s: If it works... Can I try 400FSB? What do u think?

I think you could definitely give 400 fsb a try. I'm thinking it might go even higher than that for dual cores. You might have to up the MCH and FSB voltage to reach higher fsb though. Glad to see its working well for you now.

Yer the reboot thing is quite a common thing with this board... with me it only happens if i take the plug out the wall when i switch it off. Then when i plug it back in and switch it on it comes on for 2 seconds then goes off for 2 - 3 seconds then comes back on and boots up fine.

Hi SgtSpike,

I don't have a Q9450, but I do have a Q9300 that I am currently running at 400x7.5 = 3.0 GHz. at 1.18V.

I think that this chip has a lot more in it.

I was hesitating going higher because of temps, but someone told me that the 45nm aren't giving correct temps and RealTemp 2.5 is the best program to get accurate readings.

So, based on that and the fact that I am at such low CPU volts, I am going to crank my Q9300 up some more.

Attached you can see the high temps in HWMonitor and the lower temps in RealTemp.

Yeah, that's another time that it happens, if I either take out the plug, or switch it off from the psu switch, which i hardly every do. So, i guess i don't need to worry about getting a bad board thanks for letting me know.
