Well, if I had to venture my guess, it's probably your mobo limiting you

I just ran a series of tests (Just playing a game, World of Warcraft to be exact) Being that mine's an E8200, I'm stuck at 8x multiplier:

Step 1: I've been running 460x8 almost from day 1, went for the 1ghz OC... 2.66 to 3.67 (vcore 1.275v - hardly an increase from stock), vdimm +0.2 = 2.0v, divider at 2.40 = pc2-8500 with a very mild OC, PCI-E, FSB, and MCH voltages all at default
................runs fine no matter what I throw at it

Step 2: 10mhz fsb increase. This motherboard will not run games at 470fsb.
- change memory divider to 2.0, memory running way under stock - no go
- increase fsb and/or mch voltage to +0.1, +0.2, +0.3 - still no go
- increase vcore to 1.375(to account for even the minor 80mhz cpu speed increase) - STILL no go

Leads me to the obvious: my particular motherboard is not going to pass ~460 fsb Here's wishing I'd spent the extra $14 at the time for an E8400.... 460x9 gets me almost another 500mhz, I'm ABSOLUTELY sure my cpu would do it even if it took that 1.35-1.4v to get there :\\

Hey i was wondering if anyone here knows if the ep35-ds3R has the same voltage issues as the ep35-ds3l. I really wanted a regular p35-ds3l but they're quickly going out of stock, and the ds3r looks like a good option to overclock

Yes, it's pretty much the same board, but with Raid options.

I'm trying to OC a Q6600 with this board. I can get it stable at 3.285, but when I run Prime95 on this it drops the multiplier to 6 after about 5 minutes. I have disabled C1E and EIST, but left TM2 on. I'm running vcore at 1.3975 in BIOS, 1.34 idle in HWMonitor and 1.28 load in HWMonitor. I've got FSB and MCH at +.1 each. It seems to drop when the CPU temperature is just about to hit 60C. Any suggestions?

Go into the PC Health Status tab and disable CPU Warning Temperature or set it to 70oC/158oF. I have noticed the (TM2) will kick in according to the CPU Warning Temperature settings.

Weird, I'm pretty sure I have my CPU warning thing off in the BIOS, but I'll check as I too have that problem.

I don't need RAID so the DS3R would be a waste(except for the extra USB ports). I'm not a big gamer either so SLi isn't needed.

I guess my question is does anyone here own the newer EP35 model/ How does it overclock and is it just as good as the older P35? If I don't use DES it should be the same board pretty much right? I can get either one and I don't know what to do. I thought about the Asus P5E-VM HDMI but I already have the Zotac 8800gts card coming soon so I don't need the IGP or HDMI port. Any suggestions?


Thanks!

Justin
From what I've read, the EP35 is the same as the P35 except for the Dynamic Energy Saver feature. There's a voltage issue you can read about here:
