Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L Thread - Page 35

post #341 of 4644
Has anyone have trouble overclocking with bios F6?

After I updated bios, I cannot seem to get over 3.29 GHZ. I recorded my overclock results previously, so I have an idea what I should be able to get at.

When I try to go above/beyond 3.29 GHZ with any multiplier, it fails to post. In my logs I got to the OS fine, and I have also tried higher voltages than I should have needed.

When I run prime95, 1 thread drops within a minute. The other 3 chug along. Does anyone know what that indicates, or what adjustment to make to stabilize? Also what part does overvolting the northbridge play?
I am currently running at 3.6 (400x9) and memory divider of 2.4 for 960 freq. Voltage on processeor is up to 1.48.

Thanks,
John

I am a newbie to overclocking so please give suggestions to correct/fix my overclocks with the board as given below.

Update my Bios to F7.

I did a mild overclock to 3 Ghz using the following settings.

Robust Graphic Booster Auto
CPU Clock Ratio 8X
CPU Host Clock Control Enabled
CPU Host Frequencey (mhz) 375
PCI Express Frequency (mhz) 100
C.I.A.2 Disabled
System Memory Multiplier (SPD) [2.00]
Memory Frequency (Mhz) 800 750
DRAM Timing Selectable (SPD) [manual]
CAS Latency Time 5 [4]
DRAM RAS# to CAS# 5 [4]
DRAM RAS# Precharge 5 [4]
Precharge delay(tRAS) 18 [12]

System Voltage Control [Manual]
Ddr2/ddr3 OverVoltage Control [Normal]
PCI-E OverVoltage Control [Normal]
FSB OverVoltage Control [Normal]
(G)MCH OverVoltage Control [Normal]
CPU Voltage Control [Normal]
Normal CPU Vcore 1.35000V

Note that I am running RAM @ 4-4-4-12 at normal voltage and CPU Voltage control at normal too. The system seems to be stable with orthos with temps of 62'C at load but since normally everybody sets their CPU voltage control to some given value, should i also do that?

Also, i had renabled these settings below since my Artic Cooler 7 seems to be a tad loud @ full speed of 3000 rpm so i set it to run at auto speeds.
CPU Enhanced Halt (CIE) = Enabled
CPU Thermal Monitor 2 (TM2) = Enabled
CPU EIST Function = Enabled

Hence the temps of 62-63'C that i get on load is @ about CPU fan 2000rpm.

Thanks in advance!
Hi Alias! ...IMO with your current temps i recommend to fine tune your vcore to a lower values if posible, since your CPU is stable at those speeds, try to lower the vcore 1 step at time and check if it's stable, if it is, keep lowering until you find unstability then increase vcore about 2 steps, this way you'll find the lower vcore for your current speed and temps will be slightly lower...also you may try 2.4 multi for your memory (907Mhz) and set the ram voltage at 2.1v to be safe ...your ballistixs can take that easy without relaxing timings IMO

Yes me too but in my case its ram related due to one ram setting missed in F6, it may be your case too so try relaxing your timings or use lower multi for RAM
....i hope it helps

It indicates that one of your cores can't run @ current speed with your current vcore, try bumping your vcore a little let's say 2 steps up an check again with prime95 or you can just downclock your cpu a little like 5mhz at time and check for stability

Hey thanx for the reply!

Ok, so u mean to set my CPU Voltage Control to something like 1.325 and check for stability since i get it that normal aint that efficient?

Also, doesnt running RAM at a different multi like 2.4 make it less worthwhile then a 1:1?

Also, wat is your suggestion on running the CPU fan? Should it to be set on auto or full speed in case of overclock?

Yes, you can try 1.325 for your vcore. If that doesn't work, try something between 1.35 and 1.325. You need to get those temps down, 63c is pretty high!

If you're able to, running your memory as fast as possible is the best. So a 2.4x multi on your memory will make it run faster than a 2.0 multi, thus resulting in a slightly better performing system.

I would definitely set your CPU fan at 100% with the temperatures you're having... you should try to keep your temperatures under 60c.

Ok, will try this tonight. Cant wait to get home!!

I take it that increasing my memory speeds(if they can ), would result in better performance that will just stress the RAM. Moreoever this would not increase the CPU clock speed right?

hi, my current volts are on deafult havnt changed anything and i'm stable on 3.0 should i be considering lowering my vcore?

well.. it isn't mandatory and since each processor is unique you'll have to find if yours can do 3.0 at lower voltages... ...with your tuniq you must obtain very good temps, nevertheless if you are able to maintain stability at 3.0 with less voltage you will be helping to diminish the temps and that is something important when you overclock.
