Now for my own question which i have probably touched on in this post previously. Im really wanting to know how many people here with ds3l boards run into the issue i run into every once in a while. every once in a while my pc fails to boot.
It does the automatic restart thing at bios level where it restarts 2 times then all my settings are gone, i simple re-enable everything then im fine until next time it happens.

So to you ds3l owners, does your pc start 100% of the time and you guys never experience this ?? Ive tried a bunch of things and was hoping it would never happen again, but alas i woke up today pushed the shiny silver power button and here i am again. Maybe this is normal and i should stop beating myself up trying to figure it out. Hook me up with your feedback pm or in the trhead Thanks Guys
I've had that problem in spades. I tried everything I could find (I mean EVERYTHING) and I RMAd the board. Still had the problem. I finally had to deliver it anyway and I ran into a interesting solution.

I had set it up at 460FSB for 3.22G on my E6550, ran prime 95 36hrs w/o error. memtest86 12 pass without error. Then I found out xp sp2 would not come out of standby. drop to 450FSB and standby worked fine. That was my baseline but I still had the problem.

I installed cubase studio4 which this system was built for and a day later I got a call: video locks then sound drops out.

It was dropping the firewire sound (MOTU traveller) hardware on boot also.
I kicked up pcie volts from +0.1 to +0.2 seemed to work, +0.3 gave a loud pop on boot through the sound system. I stumbled on this by accident thinking the video issue was separate.

I still had the problem (see my many other posts about this) then I kicked up the Vcore. I had set bios to 1.35000 to see 1.291 in cpuz under load, 1.31 idle. I wanted to keep temps down.

I finally ended up setting bios to 1.37500 and cubase settled down and ran fine. cpuz showed 1.344 Vcore idle and under load, temps were still fine (in the 30s). even with prime 95 full load it only came up to mid 50s same as with the lower Vcore.

Setting the Vcore higher seemed to solve this dropped settings problem. I'm very happy with AC freezer7. since this was my 1st OC and I still wanted a long life and cool running PC I made the mistake of running Vcore unreasonably low. (I had read of others getting this on 1.26 and 1.28 Vcore but it WAY DID NOT WORK FOR ME).

I hope this helps, I was dissapointed nobody came through with much good advice for my case. see other posts in this thread about smart fan, bios ver., legacy usb, and others probs causing this for others. One guy fixed this with a little looser memory timing. went from 4-4-4-12 to 4-4-4-14 which was grat for him but didn't help me (I was still very glad he tried to help). I have smart fan on and did not have usb, ahci issues or anything. just low Vcore.

I AM JUST PISSED THAT STABLE ON PRIME95 CANNOT BE TRUSTED TO MEAN STABLE. CAN ANYONE RECOMMEND A BETTER STRESS/STABILITY TEST??????

THANKS!!!

Every component was on and running fine. I tried unplugging everything and hooking things up one at a time. Still I have no display and the board hasn't made any beeps. Any ideas?
That happenned to me a few times trying to iron mine out. Reset CMOS with jumper or screwdriver (follow instructions to shut down and pull power FIRST!) and it should light up for you.

I runing at 2.0v which is perfect. Everytime I try to adjust the fsb it's obviously changing the ram speed. I'm having trouble linking it back to 1:1. Maybe it shouldn't be since it's 4gb. I looked through a few posts and there was not much to say. Thanks for the help.
2 things I recommend for sorting out the memory: 1. get HWMonitor so you can view actual memory voltage. 2. run memtestx86 to check memory for errors.

I ran the GSkill PC6400 (NQ) which were rated 1.8-2.0 Volt but I got errors until I raised Vddr to 2.1. GSkill rep said this is fine. As long as you don't go crazy high on the voltage they shouldn't get too hot (I use finger test---be careful!)

I ended up running 900MHz due to 450FSB. If you are running a high FSB you should probably try 1:1 first and work your way up to make sure you're not getting errors in memtest. (set bios divider to 2.0 to get 1:1, it's the lowest setting and auto usually sets it higher which will give a ton of errors if you have a high FSB and make sure performance mode set to standard, otherwise board will jack your memory into never-neverland)

I ended up with much tighter than stock timing also which helped my bandwidth a ton. The GSkills have been working great for me and many others. This is just how I got my memory settled down.

I have this board w/an e8400 and 4gb of Patriot PC2-6400LLK memory. Currently all are running @ stock settings. Right now I'm only using a stock HSF that came of an e6600 since it's thicker and has a copper core unlike the e8400's HSF.

What are the best recommended settings for my memory and the CPU to stable OC without needed a better HSF. I have heard that a lot of people are running their 800Mhz 4-4-4-12 RAM to 1066 speeds (5-5-5-16?) and the e8400 to 3.6Ghz without needing more cooling. Is that right? I'd like to go as safe as possible right now and would appreciate any help on what BIOS settings need to be set.

I really love this system and now that all is great stock, it's time to play.

I had to go to 1.37500 Vcore (in bios) just to get my E6550 running at 3.15 really stable but I believe it would go 3.4 or more at that level, temps were fine. at 1.3Vcore I passed prime95 fine over 36hrs but actually NOT stable with cubase studio 'till I kicked up Vcore. (1.344 Vcore in cpuz)

E6550 has 7X locked multiplier. You have to hit or exceed 500FSB to get 3.5GHz. I think you memory will be the limiting factor with that cpu. I'd try 500FSB with the 6X mutltiplier and see if your memory is solid at that speed. If so you will probably be good to go but I think you'll have to go A LOT HIGHER THAN 1.3Vcore. FSB will likely need a pretty good V bump at 500 or more I expect.

I'm basically asking how well can the board handle a 2.2V RAM. This is my first time building a pc so I'm not very knowledgeable, and I plan on overclocking my E7200 on this mobo, but I don't know if I should go with RAM that's 1.9V or a 2.2V

To be more specific, I'm torn between either buying this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231087
or
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820148076.

I would like to get the crucial ballistix, since it's only 19.99 after mail in rebate, but I'm a little skeptic on the 2.2V and whether or not its too much for the board and whether my 500W PSU will handle it with a 8800GT card.
Sorry if some things I said are blatantly wrong, first timer here.

I'm guessing 500W is fine if you don't have 5 HDDs, 2 video cards, 8GB memory etc. Should be plenty of reserve for a basic PC.

this board will set up for 2.4 or more Vddr so it should be fine with any memory voltagewise. I had to overvolt mine a little from stock to get past errors. keep an eye on heat there or add fans.

I've heard that some of these cpus and gpus are picky about PSU, make sure you get EPS 2 standard PSU for the new stuff just to save yourself a headache figuring out why it won't boot.

Yeah Thanks Man, Im the guy who lossened the timings and it didnt do the trick, ill look into some of the other suggerstins though, i think istarted the same way with my vcore but now its like 1.42 under load.

IDK about the ballistics I bought them had a problem with my i first set (siglesided) I have some doublesided not really pushing them though. If i could do it all over again id probably buy something different, I dont have tracers so idk if they also are coming single sided. if i buy ram again it will most definitely be 8500 or something faster than 6400 i have now. Whichever you choose the board is flexable and will suit probably any ram voltage you get between 1.8 and 2.4

How did the higher Vcore do on temps? Did it help with cold boot problem?

I have the same ram and emailed G.Skill about the voltage, they replied:
"This model of memory is good to run up to 2.0~2.1v. maximum 2.15v"
I run 400FSB 1/1 (2.0) 3.6ghz auto timings
I would like to tighten the timings but not sure what to set it to.
At the moment I'm trying to figure out 3.8ghz 423mhz ram 1/1 and maybe tighten it up?
