Question, My system is Low temps and 10000% stable in those:
Q6600 G0 running at 333*9=3.0ghz
Memory Kingston XyperX 1066 Runing at 800 / Auto 5.5.5.16
factory says 5.5.5.15

Question Because i Use all 4 Slots , How can i have a STABLE system ruuning all 4GBytes in 1066??? by changing the 2:4 to 3:2 and +2v to ddr2 doesnt give stable system!

best seting for 4gb XyperX kingstons at 1066 anyone??? tnx
F12?! You are ds3r? v.2.1? You like it pretty well? I have ds3l v.2.0 and F8f is latest I can find.

If I were you I knock my memory down to 1:1 and tighten timings, run memtestx86 a dozen passes and if it's good start bumping it up from there. You can't be stable if you have bad memory. I had increasing Vddr .1V over rated got rid of errors. Once you run your memory as high as it will go without error then you can up CPU and Vcore to suit. It may be backwards to some people but I figure that way I can tell if it's my cpu unstable if memory is already setup good.

Also maybe 4GB won't clock as well as 2GB somtimes. If u are running 4 chips you could try 2. Aslo tom's hardware had a good memory shakedown a few months ago and kingston hyperx was in there. I bet you could figure a lot out about you memory there. Good luck!

ds3l is no raid, ds3r is with raid. usually they say it's best not to upgrade the bios if you don't need to. that would explain bios version difference. there is another thread for ds3r you could get good info there to I bet.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...ry,1223-2.html

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/pc-memory,1698.html

and this probably doesn't go here but I was impressed at how crazy expensive ddr3 DID NOT actually produce results that were very impresive for my $$$.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...tout,1754.html

I see what you mean about the ds3. looks like it has raid and I believe the bios u mentioned is also for the ds3r. my 2 cents.

Is there any reason to use a bios other than F8f for rev. 1.0 of this board?
post #2675 of 4644
I just won one of these on ebay for $56 (couldn't pass up such a sweet deal). So now I have a couple questions:

Will the northbridge heatsink be able to hold the voltage necessary for 400fsb?
How well does it handle 8gb of ram?
Is it necessary for me to cool the mosfets? (I will be using a Q6700 hopefully)
WC ftw!

8gbs of ram tested only once and was running VERY smooth (i am talking about the ga-p35-ds3 rev2.1) the northbridge cooler its fine, as long as there is an Cold-clean-Air floating into your case from low-front and the Hot upper back leaving it .

mosfets doesn need cooling gigabytes technology rock!

...as about my question, exept the (try it ) is there any stock timings that work fro 4gb overcloack to 1006 for hyper x to start with?

this isnt a overclock question but its about the ga-p35-ds3l, and its really important to me

i have a condenser mic that runs from xlr to 1/4, then with a 1/4 to 1/8 stereo adapter....

when i plug it in fully i can only hear my microphone from one ear... on any other soundcard this combination works flawlessly, but at the same time my headset mic works fine on the ga-p35-ds3l onboard... i can also hear both ears if i leave the adapter unplugged a little bit... (which im not gonna do)

so my question is whats going on? do i need some other kind of adapter than a 1/8 stereo for this mobo or what?

i cant figure it out considering it works on everyother soundcard i got fine, but i would much much rather use the onboard sound, so please help if you can, thx

Thanks! hehe I was wondering about the mosfets after lottsols little fireball.

I have another question now: Does this motherboard have a northbridge temps sensor? My current one only has a sensor somewhere on the motherboard, and no one knows where lol.
Oh yah, and I have the P182 as my case, which has 2 exhaust fans that move a good amount of air. I don't have and intake fan, but I can feel air being sucked into the case...not sure if that's enough for an overvolted northbridge, but if it isn't I can put my HR-05 on it. Will that void the warranty?

Hello everyone , I have been doing alot of reading about this board and the ASUS P5N-E SLI nForce 650i board. From everything that i have read the ASUS P5N-E SLI nForce 650doesnt like to overclock the quad cores Q6600 too much. From what i read this board Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L P35 is simple to overclock and quad core friendly. My concerns are however the heating issues i been hearing about with q6600 does it really get hot ?if i overclocked it to 3 gigs will it be stable and keep over clock settings after reboot? ok just wanna hear your thoughts and suggestions thanks!!!!!!

Gauvenator: just to make it clear, i was talking to specif mobo above that uses the latest mofset technology that keeps them more cool,
now, about the northbridge sencor, there is one, But i dont now if its in the north briedge it has to be very close to it cause when you se the "system Temp" in the Bios this is about 40+ degrees so it has to bee very close to NB.and its not like a cooler extra sensor it has to be onboard so we cant easy spot it.
also if you changes cooling system into the motherboard, (i sujest try to not Overvoltage thinks when overclock, you may achive what 10-20% more power, its not healthy for the system, a NB isnt as a CPU that can handle for few months 0.1-0.4v+ more power its very sensitive the NB and if it Burns out you are finished! So try not to remove the Cooling system, or At least keep the original safe in a place and change it VERY cerefully with a 100% compatible one, that doesnt need, to "stuck" over the cheep, and can be replaced in the future with the original if you have the need to use the warranty! otherwise they will not make use of your warranty 99%.


Guide_Timothy: i had a 650i from MSI and when i bought my Q6600 and tried to overcloack, well yes was not that friendly as its the new 750i!
my current Mobo (GA-P35-DS3 rev2.1) using bios F12, kick ass in overclocking friendly!

ok here is an analysis:
q6600 stock speeds - stock cooler - airfloating in the case with 5vfans- idle temp 48-50/maximum temp 66

q6600 3.00ghz - stock cooler ....bla bla bla idle:55-58 / max: 70+

q6600 3.00ghz - Zalman
9700 LED for Intel - Amd (http://www.plaisio.gr/product.aspx?c...product=891827) difficult in installation if the board its allready in the case you have to remove it, and make sure the back will not "curb" from the scruing, and there is something (like a fat piece of paper) to protect it from touching by accident the case tetal back, if any (this case is the best with out the back and very very cheap)THERMALTAKE VG8000BNS WING RS 101 BLACK (http://www.e-shop.gr/show_per.phtml?id=PER.650633)

bla bla bla idle temp 40-42 / max 55-57 and VERY quit voltage of the fan at 7v !!!!!! (summer time)

so the answer is to get 3.0ghz you Just change the CPU fsb to 333x9 multiplier and manuall always set the PCIx at 100mhz and keep the memmory by using a ration 3:2 or what ever at there difault speed 800/or 1066mhz whet ever RAM you have, overcloacking the RAM its the difficult part and that where the System restart / BSOD etc etc, LEAVE the Voltages ang Timings of CPU and RAM UNCHANGED! the 3.0ghz its a peach of cake for this mobo and there is no fear at all! even with the stock cooler! and you can leav the SmartFAN on, i dont have problem with the rev2.1.


BUT all of you REMEBER overclong MORE than 25% - 30% and having a STABLE system for a while, doesnt mean the CPU and the Other RAM or NB chipsetts are not harmed internally!!!
silicon contacts are starting to melt and may touch on its other ofter months of use.thisis nannotechnology we are actually talking about, therei not enough space beetween anything in a cpu, or a NB.
nothing is for sure. untill 3.0 from 2.4 its not an overcloacking its a walk in the park and harmmless, enything else above that starts to reduce lifecycle and will burn the CPU or make it not work in other speeds EVER again! i have seem many CPU OVER OVERcloacked and then they where behiving very strangly to other systems, not booting, not working at full stock speed, or worst couldent downclock

goodluck and allways dont Over do it! ex 2.4ghz to 3.7+ because we are using water cooling, so what? the front size buss can be damaged even in low temps!! ;-)
