How cold is your room? Or are you freezing that CPU?

I think it should be safe to have your ram staying at 2.0v as long as it is stable and not too hot. I had some Corsair DDR533 ram that was rated on 1.8v and the Corsair tech guy said it is safe and will not void the warranty until raising the vdimm to 2.1v. Not sure about the Apacer ram but I assume it should be similar since .2v is NOT really that much.

My RIPed AMD 5000+ Black Edition at 3.3G used to idle at 12c with a lowest of 9c and load at 28c , but then my room was somewhat freezing and I have my radiator sitting beside my window.

By the way, I have some Zalman ramsink left over from my 8600GT. Wondering if it will help if I stick them on the mosfets around the CPU? I have heard some mix reviews about them. Some people say it will help to cool down the mosfets when I OC a lot but some people say it doesn't really help much. Please shed some light because I don't have enough to cover all those mosfets and I will need to get some extra ones if I need to cover all of them.

Thanks!

Thanks c230k.
But this problem is getting more frustrating each time and my memory theory has been quashed. Following that theory today and increasing the ram voltage in line with the automatic settings it finally ran close to 3gig. Then bam! Page fault BSOD on loading windows. Ram still checks ok with memtest. But I don't think overvolting it is a good idea. Apacer finally got back to me:
Quote:
According to module spec normal operating range is between 1.8±V. Which means you may try 1.9V for testing first.

The max operating is over 2.5v. 2.0v is still safe in the operation range. 0.2v is not going to harm to your memory module.
So tonight I went the other way - lowered the cpu multiplier and bumped FSB up to 333. The ram does run perfectly fine at 1.8V. Right now system's running at 2700MHz with all stock voltages. Orthos hasn't locked up like it was doing today.

So once again I have no idea. It's like settings have to be changed in a different order every day or it won't cooperate.

Just start messing with the BIOS and look back some pages on this thread, it's been mentioned like 10,000 times.

Hey guys.

I just completed my new rig. I just wanted to say that I love this board! I overclocked to 3.0 ghz on my Q6600 with no voltage increase, 100% stable. I'm sure I can go higher but I'm still on stock cooling. I'll post my results once I get my Freezer 7.

Its probably the case that I have that gives it good ventilation with the copper cpu and gpu cooling. The graphics card stays 35-40c idle 47-54 load. And I changed the voltage in the bios to 1.40 and It let me overclock it higher to 3.06ghz but it shows 3.40ghz in system properties.

Done more testing. Have ruled out ram as a problem. Any chance anyone can give me advice on how to check whether it's motherboard or cpu thanks? Have 3 days before I go to a place where I can buy a replacement.

Well, Newegg is out of stock now, and I still haven't jumped on this motherboard. I'm sorta glad I've waited, and I'm still hoping that Intel sticks to the January 20th release of the E8400 so I can get this upgrade done either in late January or early February. At this point it just seems to make sense to hold out for the E8400, over getting the E6750 or E6850 now.

I'm also hoping that when Newegg receives new stock of this mobo that it will contain a bios compatible with the new 45nm chips. That may wind up being a deciding factor on what motherboard I end up purchasing, since I don't have another LGA775 CPU just laying around to flash the bios with. I'm hoping that they restock the P35-DS3L and that it's more up to date, around the same time that they stock the E8400. I can't wait to hop on the Intel bandwagon now, this A64 3200+ is showing its years.

I'm still debating with myself on what GPU to purchase. The EVGA 8800GTS (G92) is tempting me, because I've seen how well it overclocks, and if you can find it with the pack in, it also comes with Crysis (seems that deal is all but over now though) which is a nice bonus. I'm not sure it's worth it over a much cheaper 8800GT, but the additional stream processors, and the vented cooler make it tempting none-the-less.

Okay, /rant over. I'm just trying to entertain myself while I wait for Intel and newegg
