Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L Thread - Page 390

post #3891 of 4644
I have installed WINXP 32BITS Home Edition along with drivers and other necessary softwares. After I download the Xpress Recovery2 (latest: Ver.1.01.070817) image (*.iso) and burned it into a CD, here are the step I performed:

1. Insert the CD
2. Reboot my machine
3. Press F9 the first time
4. Press continue
5. Press any key to load the Xpress Recovery2
6. I see the initial blue screen of Xpress Recovery2
7. I received the following message:
IDE drive doesn't exist or all primary partitions are occupied

Here is my BIOS settings:
IDE controller: Enabled
SATA: Enabled
Boot Priority: 1. CD, 2. HDD

Hardware Configuration
SATA #0: SATA Hard Drive
SATA #1: DVD Burner/Reader

I have only one SATA hard drive (500GB) with 250GB as the system primary partition. The rest (250GB) is unallocated space.

If your running SATA, why don't you diable the IDE controller and try again?

Now this mobo is turning me krazy!!!!

This morning temperatures sudenly went mad.. 50ºC idle and so.. i checked the fan and it was spining at the usual RPM..
I checked CPUZ and ..voila.. the vcore was 1,76V!!! IDLE!!!

WHY IS THIS MOBO CHANGING THE VCORE AND VDROP ALLTHE TIME!!!! WHY!!!!!ç

MY hystory so far is:
-I had to set 1,8V in the BIOS so the max keeps at 1,44V ..with that i got 3,33ghz stable
-One day after my family cut accidentally power to the house.. temps raised a lot.. vcore was noe 1,6V .. i set it manually in the mobo to 1,45V and it was ok..
-Some days after situation reversed again by a power-out ... system became unstable and i had to set it again up to 1,8V.. then temps and stability resumed again ok.. until now.
-Thing were ok until today when i noticed temps quite high..
-Checked CPUZ and sure enought.. vcore was 1,76!!
-Lowered it back to 1,46V ..but then ORTHOS only last seconds.. lower than that and windows doesnt even boot.
-For now i have it at 1.5V ..vcore in CPUZ is 1,47V ..idle ..if i run ORTHOS.. vcore drops to 1,44V and oscylates between 1,44 and 1,47..but doesnt raise..

temp is ok .. but non-stable .orthos fails within seconds.. if i go lower (wich is pointless since orthos allready fails) windows doesnt even boot
-If i go higher i will surelly get higher temps.
Thing is.. now its not regulating vcore volt.. It should indicate 1,28/1,3 in idle..but no.. it marks 1,47..and doesnt rise under load.. previous stable was 1,8V in BIOS.. 1,28/1,3 idle and 1,44V under load..

Anyone knows why i lost the mobo capacity to regulate vcore?..


Oh.. BTW.. are there tools to change vcore with software that work with this mobo?

Sounds like the Mobo might have had a power surge. It is to be expected to increase the voltage on the DS3 due to it's known VDroop issues. For instance I have to set 1.55 Vcore to get 1.47 Idle, which drops to 1.395 under full load. But going from 1.8 set in BIOS down to 1.44 Is a serious problem. My question is what BIOS revision are you using? I am running the F7 BIOS and I still have some Massive Vdroop. I know that the F9 Revision is supposed to be the best, yet has a tiny bit of Vdroop, just not as much as the previous versions. I have not really wanted to risk a Flash over to F9 because I can find stable ground, however with your problem, I think its the only way. Concider a QFlash to F9, or F11 BIOS. Check all of your power connections to and from the PSU. Try swapping PSU's. Hope this helps.

Thanks.
I prefeer not to think in the power supply.. i use a Tacens Valeo 480 smart and so far its performing quite perfectly..and its in fact more expensive than the mobo itself.

What i cant explain is the voltage thing.. usually i had about 1,28 in idle and went up to 1,44V in load.. that made sense..but now i have about 1,42V in idle and drops to 1,40 in load.. its the reverse thing.. is there any option for this on the BIOS?

Now i managed to get it under control..but going lower from 3,33ghz to 3.00 .. its still a good overclock since the E4500 comes at 2.2ghz .. but still i dont get why this all of the sudden.. i will look for the bios version and maybe i update

BTW: Is the AHCI mode faster?

Whats funny is that what you just stated doesn't make sence. Your voltage should decrease under load, not increase. As your CPU increases usage, it increases energy demands and puts more strain on your PSU. Thus is why most overclockers complain about this board. The VDroop is massive.

Possibly, IRRC there are 2 different controllers on the board. Play around and find whats faster, the yellow or the purple.See here for more information on it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advance...ller_Interface

You are right.. for some reason i was mistaken.. reviewed my own old coments when i oced this mobo and found that in the better condition it was 1,44V idle and 1,42 under load.. i messed it up

What i dont understood now its that while the voltage is theorically ok now.. why temps have raised so much sudenly..
I will try cleaning up fans and so

Cleaning your case and improving airflow can't hurt. Try re-aranging the flow to get better cool air over your CPU. If your really getting nasty temps, I would think about re-seating your HSF and using a better TIM. If a reseat doesn't do the trick, you shoudl really lean towards lapping your HSF and your CPU. You can see how I did it in the link in my siggy. Dropped my temps by 10c.

Well it worked.. as today idle temp was about 33ºC .. cleaned the fan and heatsinks and now idle temp is 25ºC.. not bad..

By the way just to be informative.. i use a brush and a 2 way vacumm cleaner to clean.. the brush helps removing dust and dust deposites wich are aspirated by the vacumm cleaner..and i use the "blow air" function to blow hard air over the heatsink to force dust and crap out.. it works quite well.. but i recomend be carefull if like me you are alergic to dust
