post #421 of 4644
im having a prob, just installed a q6600 on the gigabyte mobo. in cpu-z its saying my core speed is 1800mhz but everest says otherwise (2.7). the mulitplier also jumps from 6 to 9. i dont know what to do. i really dont want to have to rma it if its the processor thats the problem

That's just the Intel power saving option in the BIOS kicking in. Turn off the EIST function in the BIOS.

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.
Good call, you could either wait and see if the DS3L comes back in stock, or the DS3R is a great choice as well. Same everything, just a few more features. More sata ports, supports onboard RAID, etc. It should OC just as well as a DS3L though.

Certainly a possibility. I've only seen things completely disappear when they are gone for good... usually they just show it as out of stock when it is out of stock, but it's certainly a possibility that they might just remove it completely when it is out. Not sure why they would do that, but hey...

hi,

i'm new to this OC thing and i have question regarding RAM...

what is the difference between the value ram and the hyperx ram?
coz i'm planning to build a new PC and i found these types of RAM when i visited kingston's site.

will both rams give me the same performance? if not, will i be able to overclock if i purchase the value ram?

and 1 more thing, i'm planning to buy these:

GA-P35-DS3L or R
Q6600
XFX 8800GT 512MB
thermalite 120 ultra
i'll be using 4GB of RAM btw... my question is how may watts will my PSU be?
if i'll be using these...

thanks!!!

While this won't be a particularly technical response:

Value RAM = Cheaper, but won't OC quite as will. It will likely require a higher voltage, and only be able to run at looser timings

HyperX RAM = More expensive, but will get better performance out of it.

If you are planning on OCing your RAM (which I'm sure you are, you are at OC.net ) then I would suggest a performance line of RAM, but probably not Kingston. I see you are not in the US, but I will show you a few other brands you should see if you can get shipped to you or buy locally:

Overclockable "Value" RAM
Crucial DDR2-800
G.Skill DDR2-800

High Performance RAM
Crucial Ballistix DDR2-800

There are other good brands out there, but those are some of the more common choices by members here. [b]Whoops, sorry you wanted 4GB, you can search for 2x2GB instead of those brands[b]

For a PSU, you're probably looking at a 600W at least, or 750W to be safe.

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).
should we belive CPUZ reading for the volts or what we set it too, because in the bios under the monitor it says something similar to CPUZ also even though i have it manually set higher.

I'm wondering about this as well. I pushed my OC slightly higher last night and got an error in Prime95, so I went into the BIOS and boosted the vcore slightly higher to 1.3875 volts.

CPU-z shows my idle voltage at 1.36 and my voltage under load drops to 1.344. I understand the latter is the vdroop, but what's with the former? Is this vdrop? If so, how much juice is actually going into the chip when idle? Is it 1.385 or 1.36?

I'm curious to know so I can determine how high I can safely set the vltages in the BIOS.

i see... but the RAMs that are available here ae mostly kingston and corsair... anyway i'll just settle for them coz i have no other choice... anyway, is thermalite 120 ultra enough or do i really need to add more cooling stuffs? i'm just planning to OC my processor up to 3Ghz or maybe more if thermalite is already enough....

yea, i have a similar situation, does anyone know what the real readings are that are really going to the CPU?

im using the F7 bios and i have it set for 1.43750v and in the "PC Health Status" in the bios shows up as 1.396v and in CPUZ it shows 1.376v. I just want a real 1.4v but im starting to think that even though i have it at 1.43 the real is 1.39???

anyone know how to figure out the real reading?
