Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L Thread - Page 42

post #411 of 4644
Im getting confused with this clock speed reducing stuff now, i turned off the option that was suggested to me earlier but in CPU-Z it still ays 1202.8MHz (Multiplier x6.0) and it says 1203MHz (Multiplier x6.0) in Everest but in Core Temp it says 2205.18MHz (220.47x11.0)

Make sure you have Vista set to High Performance or else it will throttle down your CPU...

Did you play with C.I.A.2? Set it on Disabled...

EDIT: Forget that, you must have C1E enabled, set that to disabled .

Greetings! First post here.

Great thread. I just got this board a couple weeks back and have been fiddling about with overclocking. It's my first overclock attempt ever, so I'm rather in the dark about a few things, but google is certainly a big help whenever I have questions. Anyway, I read through this whole thread (after finding it with a google search), and it's been invaluable. Kudos to all contributors.

So far I'm up to 3.2 GHz (400 x8) and looking to get that pushed further. Load temps are at around 49 to 50 C so far with vcore at 1.375, so I think I have lots of room left. I'll try to update as I can. Cheers all and happy holidays.

Newegg deactivated the product listing for the P35-DS3L

I hope that doesn't mean they're not restocking it. If they don't I might be looking for alternatives. I'm not planning on placing an order until the E8400 ships and I have a $500 gift certificate to newegg so I was planning on purchasing most of my components there.

Congrats, that's a decent OC. Welcome to OCN!

Usually it does mean they are not planning on carrying the board anymore... Which is really odd, because it is still in high demand. You might take a look at the DS4, it's a good OCer as well, but bloody expensive. Speaking of bloody, though I hate to say it, the DFI Blood Iron is a good inexpensive option as well.

I have a DFI Nforce 4 motherboard currently, and I can't say I'm too pleased with the built quality. The chipset cooler actually melted off of the motherboard. I actually built two machines with this same board (Lanparty NF4) and both experienced the same issue. The cheap, plastic fan stopped spinning at some point, and proceeded to literally melt off of the mobo.

Now granted, the thing still works fine.. but after this experience, I'm not too keen on purchasing another DFI board personally. The fact that they don't use 100% solid caps is another negative in my book. I'll be looking elsewhere.

What about the GA-P35-DS3R? Isn't it virtually the same board as the DS3L, just with a few additional features?

Oh well.. I was looking forward to getting a killer P35 board for under $100, but it's important that I order the bulk majority of my parts from Newegg at this point, since I have some credit to blow there. I was initially planning on getting an E6850, so hopefully the price difference represented by the E8400 will allow me to shift some of the expense over to the mainboard. I guess it doesn't matter until late Jan./early Feb. anyway.. and hopefully by that time all of the P35 boards are shipping with 45nm compatible bios's.

They have took it off before, for a couple of days, and then put it back. A lot of other vendors still have it so I don't know why Newegg wouldn't restock it. Especially since it was given their little buy of the month award. They are probably selling so many of them that their supply chain can't keep up.
