Heeeeeeeeeeeeey guys, I'm not an owner but my friend will soon. I was wondering if anyone has had a good experience running G-Skill ram with their ds3l. It's not listed in the QVL so I need to make sure. The ram in specific is G.SKILL F2-8500CL5D-2GBPK

If it makes you feel any better.
I'm running 4.01Ghz at 1.3625 vcore (that's max reccomended).
+0.4v DDR2 (you need to set yours to +0.3v, not +0.2v)
PCI +0.1v
MCH +0.2v (used to run +0.3v but it's stable at +0.2v)
FSB +0.2v
Ram 2.40 (might have to go 2.00)
5-5-5-15 timings

Your vcore it too low for a higher overclock. It's that simple.

Good luck. ~JadeMiner~

in this article i found that was long ago, its crystal clear that the P35 has support of pci-x 2.0, this doesnt only help in performance, but its consuming less energy, so less heat, so green planet.....

but i am sure that this feature is somehow LOCKED in our Chipsets...who the heck can we unlock that, can we verify its there ?

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2007/06...ports_pcie_2/1

i have 8800GT wich IS pci-x 2.0 and now that i am getting the GA-EP35-DS3P why not use that extra power????

any ideas?

I'm not sure what you can tell by the picture but my understanding is these are pcix 1.1. Intel did not make pcix 2.0 available until X38 chipset.

Hey Folks,

First time poster, long time admirer (yuk,yuk). Let me cut to the chase:

I had a horrible experience with the EVGA 680i Mobo and in looking for a board that actually worked, I ended up buying the Gigabyte GA-EP35-DSP3P. With the EVGA board, I had dead SATA port after dead SATA port and tons of hall.dll corruption and system instability, both overclocked and stock.

After recently installing the GA-EP35-DS3P and overclocking my Core Two Duo E6750 from 2.66Ghz to 3.2 and 3.0Ghz I have run into some system instability, a BSOD and most recently a hal.dll corruption combined with an additional boot entry in my boot.ini. Booting the first option gives me the hal.dll error and booting the second option takes me into XP Pro as usual.

I'm at work right now but I'll try to give the best breakdown of my system possible:

GA-EP35-DS3P Mobo
Core Two Duo E6750
Zalman CNPS9700
Crucial DDR 800 2x1GB and 1x512MB DIMMS
Seagate 350GB SATA 7200rpm Disk (NO RAID)
Western Digital 300GB SATA 7200 Spare Disk
Soundblaster Audigy Platinum Card
BFG 880GTX OC, 760MB
Coolermaster CMstacker Case with custom fan installation
550 WATT Antec Power Supply

I have checked all the temps with Everest and everything seems to be running pretty cool most of the time as I've made the best I can out of an air cooling solution. I'm pretty sure the problem isn't heat.

I've also memtested the memory, at least at stock speeds and everything seems OK.

As far as I can tell, my system instability most likely lies in my n00b approach to overclocking my machine. I have adjusted the FSB to 8x and the clockspeed to 375/400 as well as experimenting with bringing the core voltage to 1.40. In addition I have locked the PCI frequency to 100 (which I quickly learned was necessary to even approach the 16x speed of the 8800GTX). I have not manually set the memory voltages or timings and I have a suspicion that my incomplete approach to overclocking this board is probably the cause of my headaches.

Aside from what I have seen so far in this thread, there doesn't seem to be a ton of information on how to overclock using this board, much less any information from the manufacturer.

My question is, are my symptoms consistent with bad overclocking or more like bad HD? If not bad HD (or other component), does anyone have any super important tips for overclocking with this particular BIOS?

Thanks in Advance!

Yep. It'll run fine. I don't own that RAM, but I'm going to order some in about a week or two. Nevertheless, I've done my research and have read of a bunch of people having success with this RAM in the DS3L.

Take out the 1x512mb stick (or add another matching stick) and see if that helps.

Hello Agentofdarknes, welcome to Overclock.net

I have just ordered a E series board yesterday, and read about problems with overclocking it. Seems the software or something for the energy saveing mode doesent allow you to change the voltage settings very good, people said not to install it if your going to overclock. Might have to flash CMOS to fix this problem I have heard. However I have no personal experionce with overclocking, and have not aquired this board yet, so you should mearly look into my suggestions, not take them to heart.
