Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L Thread - Page 313

1. Use Q-Flash, not @ bios
2. Since you don't have a floppy, use a usb flash drive.
You have to format it in FAT16 or FAT32 before using it.

Ive just swapped my DS3 for an Abit IP35pro because the GA DS3 just wunt hold onto its settings, it kept reverting back to stock on a whim and reset my memory timings to 7,5,5,24 im using 1066 Ballistix.

It want just me, a few other people experienced the same problems so im thinking this might be an issue with Gigabyte`s DS3 range, it also used to take an eternity to boot so i was just wondering if anyone else has experienced these problems with their DS3`s ?

I have kept the board, im going to use it in another build because apart from the problems ive just highlighted it is a damn good board.

With the latest F8x bios installed now there is a line in the bios that says something like fine cpu adjust or something like that and it is set to .5 and not adjustable. Now the cpu clock reads 2.83 Ghz(333*8.5) in the bios, but in vista it only reads 2.66. I dont have this line in my bios with the E6550 and im curious what its for and why windows doesnt seem to recognize it.
EIST could be dropping the multiplier. Try running orthos and see if it raises up to 2.83ghz.

Hello everyone. I am back again.


I got a new motherboard after a bas @BIOS flash ruined my last board.


I was flashing my BIOS last time because my system refused to boot with anything other than stock settings.



When I got my new board I just did a quick OC to 2.8GHz and was setting everything else back up.


Then all of a sudden I got the same problem again. It will not boot with anything other than stock settings.


Before I got the new board I was trying to figure out how someone else fixed this problem. (Back on page 304).


But, I could not get the poster to explain what fixed his problem.



Has anyone else had problems like mine? If so, how did they fix it?


Thanks in advance.

Thanks in advance.

When you get into BIOS hit ctrl+F1 to unlock all options.

Go into Advanced BIOS and disable C1E, TM2 and EIST.

Go into M.I.T. and make the following settings:
Robust Graphics Booster.............[Auto]
PCI Express Frequency...............[100]
C.I.A.2........................................[Disable]
Performance Enhance................[Standard]
System Memory Multi (SPD)........[2.00] this gives you 1:1 ratio

Now enable CPU Host Clock Control and set your desired CPU Multi and Host
Frequency OC. Hit Esc and then F11 to save CMOS to BIOS. If it reboots
once you've gotten to the Windows Logon screen let it loop, it may take
3 attempts before it actually hits desktop. These settings should get you
to 3.2/3.4Ghz before you need to bump any voltage settings.

Set your DRAM timings loose, 5/5/5/15, and bump the CPU/FSB in 10-15
increments untill you hit a wall, and then start bumping up the voltage.

And you shouldn't need to flash the BIOS unless you have a Nehalem or
extreme quad, as all Gigabyte P35 boards have the same BIOS FSB/Dram
ratio setting option.

Happy OverClocking.

All of those seetings have already been set properly.

I have had my chip as high as 3.4GHz with my previous board, but it wont go any higher than that.

My VID is 1.3250v which is the worst G0 made.


I was reflashing my BIOS before because I couldn't figure out why it wouldn't keep my settings.


Even when I UNDERclock both the CPU and the RAM and bump up the voltage a little to ensure stability, it will not boot.

It will not boot with even a 1 mhz change in FSB. The only settings it will boot with, is the default.

It will start to boot and then reboot and change all the settings to default when it gets to the CPU check or the memory test.




I hope someone else knows how to fix this problem.

This is EXACTLY how my board behaved when I first overclocked. Remove all external USB and disable Legaccy usb detect in bios. When I disconnected external usb, it would boot the overclock. Disabling Legacy allows you to keep the externals plugged in without ill effect.

If this doesn't work I would say try bumping vcore to the max you are willing to go, to eliminate this as an issue, then work your way down to a bootable vcore. I have also had issues with more vcore for cold starts, than if the system is already warmed up.

Thanks man. I think that might be the issue. Coincidently, these problems first started after I hooked up all my external drives.

I will try what you suggest and post back.


I hope this works.




EDIT: WOW. Thanks a lot man. That fixed it all up. If you had only been around when I had this problem last time... I wouldn' have flashed my BIOS and failed and had to RMA my board.


I really appreciate it.
