Thanks, it makes sense now. the use of 1600mhz and 2133mhz confused me but now I realized they are the numbers 800 and 1066 and double pumped.

Do you have any suggestions to bring my trd down to 6 from the current setting of 7? Any adjustments to the other ram timings on this board?

u can give it more voltage, but be carefull, and do you research on how much u can bump the voltage on that ram stick. normally its within .25 but it varies by memory and board, your board will not be a issue in this case, it will be your ram sticks so do reasearch on how much volts u can pump thru that stick without it being dangerous. RESEARCH IT WILL or u will damage your sticks and or memory slots on board or both.

The ram should not have a problem! @2.1V most reviewers are getting well over 500mhz with them but I am not sure how this motherboard can handle tighter trd timings with such an overclock. I have read that trd has a pretty significant effect on performance.

Hello people!

I am digging up this old thread because I still have a P35-DS3L 2.0 w/ q6600 that I am OCing. Yes this board and chip are 4+ years old, but they still suit me just fine thumb.gif

I've had mine overclocked to 3.33Ghz for the past 3 years or so, 9x370. I recently replaced my Arctic 7 Freezer pro with the later version, because the heatsink was jammed full of dust and the Rev 2.0 is quite a bit better. I am now getting 22-26C idle temps and not even hitting 50C doing blend tests in prime95.

The problem is, I just want to be able to OC to 400fsb but no matter what I try, I can't. I am hoping someone has some good knowledge of this board and BIOS settings for OCing stored away in memory.

Seems a large part of the problem is my Q6600 G0 has a pretty bad VID, 1.325, iirc. I have cpu voltage jacked up to 1.481 in BIOS, for about 1.41 actual, and with this board's horrid Vdroop I will see it go down to 1.37 or so.

Since the new cooler, I tried notching up the CPU voltage, and FSB to 380. Increasing voltage to 1.485 or so had stopped worker thread in Prime95, increasing voltage to 1.49 I bluescreened in Prime95. Temps never went over 52C.

I feel as if something else is related to my OC failure, as I have found plenty of instances where people are OCing this chip with this board to over 3.6Ghz with lower CPU voltage. I also feel as if I have wasted CPU performance because I'm not running at 400fsb and it seems as if there is a lot more room for improvement with my low CPU temps.

Without having to dig through 462 pages of this thread, is there anything obvious I should try before jacking cpu voltage up over 1.5v?

FSB +.1v, Gmach +.1v, OCZ Platinum DDR2-1000 +.3v

Thanks!
post #4626 of 4644
i appreciate this is an old thread, so just hope i get some help!!!
tried as much as i can think of. disabled eist, ce1, thermal monitor, legacy storage etc. have tried many different cpu clocks - 8x376, 8x..., 9x etc. the settings show in the bios that cpu is clocked at 3.0,3.2 whatever but when windows starts (never failed once) cpu-z and others never show any speed above 2.4 (stock speed, q6600 G0).

i have tried many different vcore voltages (auto + 1.275 up to 1.45), FSB +.1v/.2, Gmach +.1/.2, DDR2 +.1/.2v's. have tried leaving voltages at auto too

tried the ram settings @ 1:1, 5:6 etc, tried manually entering ram timings. have disabled all 'boost' settings, even tried with boost settings. NOTHING. tried taking 2 sticks of RAM out leaving only two in, tried restoring the bios, removing the battery and starting a fresh. windows (7,x64) is set to high performance. there's no external hdd's or usb drives attached.

i can underclock the cpu, but not overclock above 2.4 no matter what i try. my RAM is kingston hyperX which, from what i've heard, is good for o/cing (EDIT: just been reading that hyperx isnt that good for o/cing, so gonna ignore what i heard, gonna try some corsair xms2 800mhz). i am not using a stock cooler, so temps are not a problem. if i were getting a bsod at boot after trying different settings or under stress testing, at least i'd be getting somewhere!!! but every time it just boots to windows at either below stock, or stock.

included are a couple of snaps showing cpu and spd in cpu-z, but as i say, i've tried all sorts of combos

any help, papasmurf, you still around these parts?!?

cheers398400

also, i'd just to add that the speeds shown in the picture are set at 8x376=3008mhz in bios, but as you can see i only get 2133mhz - happens all the time no matter what i try
EDIT: have tried corsair xms2 800mhz RAM at a few different settings - still no luck, although on a couple of variations it failed to post, so at least something new occured!! but now that i have got it to boot and tried some settings variations, still i cant the cpu bus speed past 266mhz as shown in cpu-z

Reg66, its forsure a setting in your BIOS,

DISABLE EIST and Diasable C1E.

cheers for the reply xeonox, but i already put in the previous post, i've already disabled eist, c1e, thermal monitoring, fan control and USB legacy storage. i'm running os on a ssd so ahci is enabled, do you think it could be because of this?? (i know that sounds pretty unrelated, but i'm grasping at straws here!!)

any other suggestions? cheers again

oh, and the two 'boost' options in the bios are set to 'disabled' and 'standard' - not turbo etc

Im not sure what u changed so i would just use "Load Optimized Defaults" in CMOS then change the following:





CPU Hyper-threading = Enabled
Limit CPUID Max to 3 = Disabled
Cpu Enhanced Halt (C1E) = Disabled
CPU Thermal Monitor 2 (TM2) = Disabled (be sure u have good CPU cooling)
CPU EIST Function = Disabled


CPU Host Clock Control = Enabled
PCI Express Frequency = 100 (100 is standard default, its better than auto)
C.I.A.2 = Disabled
Performance Enhance = Turbo
System Memory Multiplier = anything but AUTO, whatever OC u like that will work


Change nothing else in BIOS except for "Boot options" and under "MB Intelligent Tweaker (M.I.T.)" to the settings that work best for you and y our OC

thanks for your help xeonox, tried only what you suggested. tried updating the bios too, tried four ram sticks, two and one. tried lots more variations of cpu and ram settings/voltages and many only baby oc's around 2.5ghz.
cannot get above 266.7 bus speed x6 x7 x8 or x9. have given up!!!

basically i'm not a gamer so it doesn't really matter. i have the os and software on an ssd and it's bloody fast, so not really any big need to oc. having put together a few rigs in the past and never oc'ing, just thought i'd give it a go. i'm not one to give in and the more things i tried, the more frustrating it got to not be able to break the 266 wall. but on this occasion, i give up!!!

thanks again for your help xeonox. also, i see from your rig specs that you don't have a ssd. being an oc'er i assume you like speed. would recommend a fast ssd, it really makes a massive difference. c ya
