Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L Thread - Page 330

post #3291 of 4644
Mine had F5 when I got it. The Wolfdale chip worked but not at full speed. According to GB support the F7 is for large hard drives and the F8 is for the Update CPU microcode (Support Intel Wolfdale/Yorkfield E0-stepping CPUs).

Do it, its not too hard

Bios updates

For the GA-P35-DS3L (version 2.0) a new beta bios showed up on the support page. Version F9a beta dated 7/29/08

http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/M...ProductID=2629

Yesterday was the 1st I noticed it. Flashed it and so far so good.
It holds your oc settings on reboot (for me anyway)
Any beta later than F8f did not.

I have an f2 bios and is having issues with the vdrop and overclocking past 3.4. Should I bother to flash my bios?
post #3294 of 4644
be nice if a new bios for REV.1 boards came out. I still have the dual channel memory issue (meaning won't do). Think of reflashing the f8 bios. Is there a beta of the f8 that supports the Wolfdale.

Thinking maybe flash a lower version then reflash with the current. Any thoughts on this?

F8a, F8b, and F8f support Wolfdale.
F8a was the 1st to add support.

I just got an ep35-ds3l with an e8400. I don't know if the e8400 has e0 stepping (I plan to examine the box tonight and see if that has the series number on it). I'm not planning on overclocking, but the BIOS is telling me that the CPU ratio is 8 (+0.5 fine adjustment) and the frequency is less than 3 GHz. Is this something I should normally have to set manually, or should the BIOS autodetect?

My main question is whether I should try to update to the F5 BIOS. Will it give me better CPU temperatures or automatically support the e8400 with the correct frequency? I'm just afraid of messing something up or having problems with F5. Thanks!

I tried flashing to f8f and still no go on the dual channel memory issue. Definitely no likey. Kinda frustrating since the person got it from was running it in dual channel (got complete system from him.

So maybe I am not going about it right. What steps should I take try again. Also as a side note

right now running prime with E8400 set at 3.6GHz (FSB 400) and memory timing at 2. So cpu-z says 800 bus speed and 1600 FSB. I did have to bump voltage up so now cpu-z shows 1.248 on average. speedfan is showing temp of 63C max on cores

Thanks. I filled in relevant details I know at the moment. I can add more tonight. Basically, everything's stock on the ep35-ds3l, and I wondered if the CPU ratio was something you usually had to manually set (to 9 instead of 8 for the e8400) or whether it should be autodetected if the BIOS is working properly.
