The ram is micron based so it should take the heat with no problems.
I dont seem to get any vdrop or vdroop on my ram... i use HWMonitor

If the different board thing doesn't work out, then I recommend that you, if you haven't done it yet, OC to 3.8-3.9Ghz as mentioned in previous posts. That would be a good way to check if your chip can OC to 4Ghz.
So far I have it overclocked to 3.8ghz. Mobo bios vcore set to 1.39375v, vcore in cpu-z showing 1.36v at times and it also shows at times 1.34v & 1.328v. Fsb overvoltage is +0.1 & (G)MCH is set to +0.1 and DDR2 set to +4.

It passed OCCT but failed ORTHOS after 33 minutes. Prime95 ran for almost 2 hours then got a failed hardware error or something. So I guess my 3.8ghz ain't stable since it only passed OCCT????

Throw on +.2v for NB and FSB overvoltage and, if you want, you can do the Vdroop mod that's in my sig. It really helps when you overvolt more because the Vdroop increases a bit. It was that or the Vdrop.

It's not very hard to do, but it'll void your warranty. Just use 90% isopropyl alcohol since that has only 10% water in it compared to the 70% stuff. A Q-tip removes some of it, and the alcohol removes most if not all of it. It'll be as if you never did the mod.

--Edit--
Intel states that the absolute limit for the 45nm chips is 1.45v, but I personally wouldn't go past 1.365v (whatever they put for the limit around that voltage).

It's weird now because ORTHO's has been running for 1 hour & 45 minutes. I have had my air conditioner running for about 6 hours now. I'm wondering if that had some effect the first time I ran it. Because I had just turned it on when I started ORTHO's so the cpu and case temps were probably high since the weather temp outside was 87 degrees. I'm in Hawaii.

I don't quite understand about the vdrop stuff. I'll take a look at Vdroop mod in your signature. When you say you wouldn't go past 1.365v does that mean within the mobo bios or what cpu-z reports?

Edit: I read part of the Vdroop mod and I'll pass on it since it sounds complicated. I like the easy stuff. LOL!

Hello I read in another forum that this motherboard has compatiblity issues and does not like DD2 1066 RAM for overclocking and DDR2 800 works best heres what the other post says:
Quote:
IMPORTANT NOTE TO FUTURE P35-DS3L ( and P35 DS3x /DS4x and other P35 chipset based) OWNERS:
If you are planing on getting RAM natively higher than DDR2 800 be aware that there will be compatibility issues. Many users reports and my personal testing has shown that there is a very good chance you will run in to issues with RAM higher than DDR2 800, such as DDR2 1066. I recommend you get quality DDR2 800 RAM and run them at 1:1 ratio or overclock the RAM. This issue dose not apply to DDR2 800 RAM that has been overclocked.
I had my heart set on buying G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) cause i heard G.SKILL works great on this board any thoughts would help me in deciding to get 800 or 1066
THANKS

I wish I had known about those modules. I purchased the DDR2-1000 ones and they're working great. Have to rma one kit tho cuz one module won't do 1000mhz at the correct timings.

Edit: Just remember, the mobo won't automatically set it to 1000mhz. It defaults to 800mhz. You have to adjust the system memory multiplier and set the timings manually. Not a big deal, just know that the system memory multiplier x your fsb is your memory clock speed.
