i am 100% that it is connected.

Also, don't run large FFTs. You want to run small FFTs which stresses the CPU more than the large FFTs. It also creates more heat.

--Edit--
To help get you started, throw all your settings to default, follow the 1st post's hints/tips in this thread, manually set your PCIe bus frequency to 100 and RAM multiplier at 2, and throw on 333x9 using the stock voltage of your chip. The stock voltage should be displayed right below where you can set the CPU voltage.
the lowest ram multiplier is 2.5, highest is like 4. Don't see 2 anywhere

what's up with that

Sorry I should have been more specific: Is it hooked directly into the power supply? If so, then it would not show up in speedfan.

The DS3L should have a RAM multiplier value of 2. If not, you can flash the BIOS. I have F7, which the board ships with, and that has 2 as a RAM multiplier.

Just underclock your RAM using the same timings it comes with to keep the RAM from becoming a problem as you OC (what I mean is underclock it Mhz wise, sorry if it was a bit confusing) and get the RAM to your desired speeds after you get a good CPU OC down.

no, straight to the CPU_FAN on the MB

Seems ok...you can go up to 71C, if yours is a G0.

Question: I'm sure someone's done this, but I'm running XP Pro 64 on this thing and get BSOD's when I use both sticks of Mushkin 2GB DDR2 800 Dual-Channel. I'm using one stick right now in channel 0 and am running fine, but I want to update my BIOS and try running both in Dual-Channel. My problem is probably obvious to you folks: the BIOS update on Gigabyte's website does not run in XP Pro 64. How can I perform a BIOS update on a 64-bit OS? I tried searching this thread but no dice.

wut other cooling options i have? put one more fan?

right now it's running only two + the CPU

What are your ambients? That's high for 3Ghz on a Q6600. For my chip, I use 1.2625v (stock voltage) in the BIOS and I get about 48C without the Vdroop mod. I get 50 with the Vdroop mod because it uses more voltage on load than without the mod. My ambients are 20-23C or around there.

Try re-seating your heatsink, maybe that'll help.

You would be better off using Vista 64bit than XP Pro 64. I haven't heard much about XP Pro 64 bit at all.

You can update the BIOS through a USB drive, but I don't know about the procedure for that.

You should use memtest to see if one of the sticks of RAM are bad or up the voltage a little bit. I read that a set of G.Skill RAM needed a bit more voltage to run dual channel, maybe that might help? I'm not very sure on that last one.

You could try replacing the stock Antec 300 fans with better fans if you want better airflow. Try to find out how much CFM the stock fans push and buy better fans. A good one would be the Scythe Slip Streams that push 88CFM for 33DBA or the 60 something CFM fans for 24DB.

i am starting to think the motherboard is bad. I have tried 3 heat sinks already, nothing seems to work like it should. will exchange to a new board next week
