Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L Thread - Page 353

post #3521 of 4644
Hey guys,

I'm just getting started on overclocking. I've read a few sites and, through some trial and error, think I've figured out the basics of overclocking on this thing.

This is my current system.

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6750
CPU Speed: Stock-2.67gHz Current Overclock-3.52gHz
CPU Fan: Zalman 9700 LED
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS 640mb
Graphics Fan: Stock
Memory: 4x1GB Corsair DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
Power Supply: OCZ GameXStream OCZ700GXSSLI 700w
Case: Rosewill R6A34-BK
OS: Vista 32-bit Home Premium

CPU-Z:











The first thing I see is that CPU-Z only says I have a 6x multiplier when the BIOS says I have a 8x. EDIT: I re-opened CPU-Z and it now says 8x.

The second thing is on the memory page i have a 5-6-6-20, and that doesn't look very good to me when I see a lot of 4-4-4-12.

BIOS Settings:

Standard CMOS Features:
default
Advanced BIOS Features:
HDD SMART - Disabled
Limit CPUID max to 3 - Disabled
No-Execute Memory Protect - Enabled
CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E) - Enabled
CPU Thermal Monitor - Enabled
CPU EIST Function - Disabled
Virtualization Technology - Enabled
Integrated Peripherals:
default
Power Management Setup:
default
PNP/PCI configurations:
default
PC Health Status:
default
MB Intelligent Tweaker:
Robust Graphics Booster - Auto
CPU Clock Ratio - 8x
CPU Frequency - 3.52GHz (440x8)
CPU Host Clock Control - Enabled
CPU Host Frequency (MHz) - 440
PCI Express Frequency (MHz) - 100
CIA2 - Disabled
Performance Enhance - Standard
System Memory Multiplier (SPD) - 2.00
Memory Frequency (MHz) - 800 880
System Voltage Control - Manual
DDR2 OverVoltage Control - +0.1V
PCI-E OverVoltage Control - Normal
FSB OverVoltage Control - +0.1V
(G)MCH OverVoltage Control - Normal
CPU Voltage Control - 1.38750V
Normal CPU Vcore - 1.35000V

At stock levels I benchmarked it on PCMark05 at 5941
At my current overclocking it hits 7006

At my current overclocking I can run prime95 overnight without any problems, but once I push it to 450 FSB and run prime95 it will error in the first test. I've tried raising each of the voltages by +1 notch but none of them have any effect, individually or together. The hottest I've seen the CPU get is about 55C so heat isn't the issue.

I've seen people overclock their machines quite a bit more then what I've currently got but I'm running into stability issues if I try for anything more then what I've got. If any of you guys have some tips to help me get this guy going a bit further I would appreciate it.

Disabling CE1 should take care of your variable multiplier issue.

For now don't worry about the timings, also the 4 sticks of ram probably isn't gonna help to drop the timings.

I had already checked that site you linked but it was a good review. I still didn't get any hints from it.

One thing that I heard from some of the guys at work was that my RAM was likely the biggest problem so I looked into my RAM a bit and found this:

Tech Spec
Capacity 2GB (2 x 1GB)
Speed DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
Cas Latency 4
Timing 4-4-4-12
Voltage 2.1V
Heat Spreader Yes
Features SLI certified
Recommend Use High Performance or Gaming Memory

I seem to recall that the default memory voltage is only 1.8V and that by adjusting it to +0.1V I only brought it up to 1.9V which is still 0.2V short of what it should be running at. I'm going to test this and see what happens. If any of you guys have any other ideas I'd like to hear them.

1.8v is the default voltage for the board

My gskill 4x2gb is running fine.

alright i already have my cpu oc'd to 260 and i tried doing my ram, the timings that work for me are 5-5-4-15 and anything lower doesn't work (didnt try the 4th one yet) also would i have to increase voltage for my ram? if so where do i do that because the only thing i found to increase voltage is for my cpu
