Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L Thread - Page 37

post #361 of 4644
On my board, CPU-Z, Speedfan, Everest, and BIOS read the vcore as 1.28v idle and 1.22v load when I have it set to 1.32~v in BIOS. I guess there's a pretty significant vdroop from the board. On the other hand, this CPU's running at 3.8ghz with 1.22v loaded .

i just got this set up. ds3l rev 2 with a e6750 and two gigs of ballistix ram. i set fbs to 400, so im at 3.2 right now. everything is stock voltage. is there a way to see more options in the bios? also the ram should run at 4-4-4-12 so how do i set this up in the bios? it seems to be running fine. wats a stress program i could use for both cores? and is what is the best temp program. i have cpuz and everest ultimate right now. thanks, this thread made me get the ds3l and so far its very good. i have the f6 bios too.

Hit CTRL and F1 while on the MAIN screen of the bios to unlock the super secret hidden bios functions.

I would like to totally erase my F7 BIOS and go back to the one on the CD. How do I just erase it without updating it at the same time?

Turns out changing the memory timings back to 5-7-7-24 CR2 fixed the problem. I guess adding a pci-e card made the bios use the other timings?

Anyways, thanx for the help guys

Just reflash the bios with the previous bios version that you want to use. You still have to "update" the bios, even a downgrade in the bios version requires a reflash to reprogram the bios.

You have one of the throttling apps set. I forget what its called (C1E, TM2??) but you need to disable it so it doesn't drop the FSB/ CPU multi when not loaded.

look there. Disable C1E, TM2 and EIST when overclocking.

Newby here. I got this board with a Q6600 SLACR and Zalman 9500 cooler. 2 gig corsair 6400c4. I want to overclock to at least 3ghz. Can someone please give exact step by step instructions? If I use Easy tune 5 pro everything is reset back to defaults after reboot. I would like instructions how to set the bios correctly. Bios is updated to 7. Forgive me if its already posted but I couldn't it.

Don't use Easy Tune. Software OC'ing is simply more troublesome than it's worth. You should find all the info you need to get started OC'ing with Bios in this thread. This thread is where I leanred myself just this week, plenty of good info here. And good luck!

A few beginning tips that are repeated over and over in this thread that I found helpful:

1.) Turn off C1E, SpeedStep and everything else that automatically throttles down your CPU when idle.
2.) Set all voltages to Manual, and set to "normal" to start with.
3.) Lock down the PCI-e to 100 mhz.
4.) Change memory multiplier to 2.0. (Initially this will down clock your ram untill you work up to a 1:1 ratio.)
5.) Start increasing FSB (and/or multiplier if your CPU allows it) by small amounts. Keep playing with FSB and voltages till you're happy with the speed, and it's stable.

Make sure to use programs like CoreTemp, CPU-Z, and Orthos (just examples) for torture testing and monitoring temps and other stats. Watch things very closely and test for stability with every change.

One other thing I found very helpful was to disable the auto-fan speed function of the CPU HSF. (I forgett the actuall name, but it's on the bottom in the PC health monitor menu.) It made a huge difference for me with the stock HSF. Not sure that it really makes a difference now that I have an aftermarket HSF, however.
