Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L Thread - Page 351

post #3501 of 4644
He sent you to the link because it explains what has changed with different BIOS versions.

A newer BIOS on this board isn't going to do much. Mostly, GigaByte updates BIOS to support newer CPUs and different types. That's the only difference.

I have this board for a several months now and I love almost everything about it. I currently have 2GB crucial ballistix tracer installed but I want to upgrade to 6GB or 8GB for heavy video editing. I've read that this board has problem handling four dimms and especially 8GB ram. Has anyone successfully run 6GB or 8GB ram without any problem? I plan to run Vista x64 and with my Q6600 @ 3.0Ghz. Please recommend which brand of ram this board can handle. Thanks.

I have 6 gb in my system now with all 4 dimm slots full running a 480 FSB. 100% stable. All running on stock volts except for CPU (but that's to be expected). I have not had to increase FSB or MCH volts.

This doesn't mean you will get results like me, but good to know someone has had this board to 480 FSB with stock volts and all 4 dimm slots full.

This is with F4 BIOS, BTW

The 2 GB kit of OCZ I posted is not the same set I have. I have a set that is 2.1 volts default for 5-5-5-15 timings on 800 mhz.

It doesn't matter about the brands, but make sure the volts and timings are the same.

I was gonna sell my 2GB ballistix tracer because I thought mix-n-match wasn't recommended but since you proved that wrong, should I add another 4GB with the same spec as my 2GB?

This is what I have now:

With XP Pro as your OS it wouldn't be worth it,you'll see no improvment.64-bit OS's take advantage of more than 3.2GB's of ram.Save and get a better gfx's card.

I will upgrade to Vista x64 to utilize more memory for video editing. As of now, it's a pita to edit avhcd file with the ram I have now. I don't think upgrading my gfx card will do much for video editing and I also don't play games on pc. I'm just trying to find out if this board can run the full 8GB as it's advertised. I read some people said yes while others no.

You could add the 4 GB, but there's no guarantee. It's a crapshoot. (at least from reading the threads of different people...

I originally planned on using only 4 GB, but thought I would stress test 6 GB just to see and it worked well.

they're so shady about bios update descriptions.. SpeedStep (EIST) doesn't work at all in F8, although it works in F8f (beta), and all beta bios downloads are eventually removed from their DL page. found this out from reading this and then checked my cpu-z, EIST was indeed not working, C1E was.

i'm going to revert to F7 to see if I can get a higher overclock. i'll edit this post with results. F4 for some reason, is removed from the DL page. can everyone post which bios they're using??

edit: F9a (the latest) seems to be the most compatible with overclocking. However EIST still, does not work.
