Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L Thread - Page 40

post #391 of 4644
losttsol, I'm thinking part of it may be human error but can't pinpoint where I'm going wrong. I know from reading other guides that sometimes pushing some boards too much too soon can make them crap out and the only fix is to clear the bios. I mean the "automatic resetting" stuff just can't recover properly because some sort of corruption occurs. Though I'm not even pushing mine yet.

Like I said it seems to happen when trying to set Vcore manually.

I'm writing too much and probably boring everyone. So can I just ask if anyone else has an M0 rev E2160 on this board and is prepared to do some tests for me? It would be great if your chip also has a reported VID of near 1.2875V

Thanks
Dave

Got this motherboard today for christmas and am really impressed with it, greatful to everyone that suggested it to me. The software disk that comes with it is really good and has a whole load of software on it. First impressions when i opened the box where "this looks pretty " and then i cracked on with the build, it was very simple and easy to install apart from mixing my HDD and power LED's up i got it all right and it booted first time ready for me to install Vista
Now somebody tell me which frickin option i need to change to stop it lowering my clock speed to 1.2GHz because i cant find which one it is

Hey guys. Fairly new to the forum, been lurking for a while.

Just upgraded to the q6600 and this board.

Would be great if I could be added to the list!

400 x 9 at 1.408v (1.45v in BIOS) for 3.6ghz.

Guys I may be getting closer to finding the root of my problems.

However for testing I need to know how high the MCH and FSB voltages can be pushed and still remain safe for a short amount of time.

What I think is happening is even though Apacer has rated my 800MHz ram to run at 1.8V, and cpu-z reads that as well, they really only like that voltage at 400MHz or so.

The system seems totally stable (except for temps) even up to 3gig if System Voltage Control is left on Auto. Here's a couple of Health Status readings with Auto volts turned on:
FSB DDR2 Volts
250 2.016V
280 2.048V

Obviously it's increasing the volts way past 1.8V and the rams not even overclocked. Yet I've been too scared to add more than +0.1V to them since the board seems to overvolt a bit already when on manual control.

Could I be right about this? It may not be the whole story and that's why I'd like to increase the MCH etc a bit more than the usual +0.1-0.2 to test what's needed for stability.

is the cpu voltage control in bios supposed to read the same as the cpu voltage in CPUZ because right now in bios i have it set to 1.3250 but in CPUZ it reads 1.280 should i lower it in the bios so that it reads about the same or leave it as is. I also added +1 in the fsb control.

Leave it as it is it’s normal.

Are you going to OC your CPU? i wonder how far you can push yours, I got mine to 3.33GHz/417MHz bus/1.4175volt(1.37volt with CPU-Z).

I just built it yesterday and so far I have it at 2.61ghz. the settings In the bios right now are
cpu 9x290
mem 4-4-4-14-2T
temp: idle-15 load 35-40
i ran orthos for about 2 hours and its stable. so should i keep the current voltage

I didn't read thru the thread so I am not sure what's your original question was anyway if it is about DDR2 voltage....here is some info

I have some Crucial DDR2 667 rated 1.8v, OCZ ATI crossfire edition DDR800 rated 1.9-2.1v, Patriot DDR2 800 rated 1.8v

Normal setting with DS3L and voltage reading from Everest

Crucial 1.79v
OCZ 1.89v
Patriot 1.89v

Memtest report no errors and imo it has to do with the bios preset for certain types of memory. FYI, same memory for a MSI K9N SLi motherboard, bios report (don't have Everest install)

Crucial 1.8v
OCZ 1.8v
Patriot 1.9v
