Well, the fan would turn on right away when it was in the systfan header but when it was in the CPU header I was to scared to wait 5 seconds because I didn't want to risk damage to the CPU. (This is my friend's computer I'm building so I have to be extra careful)

Don't worry, because the heatsink is still on there it'll keep it plenty cool for at least a few minutes without a fan.

Exciting news though guys, I managed to get up to 3.6ghz last night @ 515FSB! I was able to run superpi as well, and got around 16.2 seconds. Had to run more voltage to everything, most notably the memory had to be 2.3v... Anyways, pretty sweet, and I want to see someone out-FSB me on this board!

Those RAM timings are

Nice FSB though, I'll see what I can do here in a sec.

Lol, yep they are. But my superpi still improved

EDIT: And you're gonna kill me with those ballistix...

Speaking of RAM timings, I'm forced to run my Corsair XMS2 6400C4 at JEDEC timings.

I wish I could run at 4-4-4-12 at 2.1v but I had to loosen up to 5-5-5-18 and kept the voltage at 2.1v. Man, the only thing that annoys me about this board is that I can't SEE what voltage I'm choosing. I don't like the fact that I can only do +.x voltage instead of choosing what I want. I understand default is 1.8v but still....

Anyway, I've updated my BIOS last night to F6 so I'm going to see what I can do about the timings (I stepped down from F5 to F3 the day I recieved this board). It'll be a little tricky since I'm running 4GB. I'm up to >900Mhz on thos babies so I'm going to try upping the FSB before my CPU goes all wonky on me forcing me to up the voltage any further. Vcore is currently at ~1.38v in BIOS. Damn you Vdroop!

I'm currently at 3.0 GHz on my E6750 (375FSB x 8), but had a couple of questions about OC'ing in general (pretty new to this):

Should I update my board BIOS if it is working fine now? I'm on F3, but would updating to F5 or F6 help me out at all (short or long term)?

Also, I'm fairly clueless as far as RAM OC'ing goes. I read through some of the guides, but if someone could point me in the direction of a guide (or just explain to me) about RAM timings and speeds, FSB:RAM ratio, and things of that nature.

Heya. OC'ing can be really exciting and it'll open your eyes to new ways of tinkering with your toy...being the PC that is.

I started OC'ing my AMD X2 4800 a while back and I can't keep my grubbing little hands off the BIOS everytime I build a new rig.

For the BIOS, it's up to you. I e-mailed Gigabyte tech support about my concerns with the older BIOS and the 45nm die compatibility. They sent me a link to the F6 BIOS and it's working flawlessly. I HATED F5. It limited my OC and apparently caused some memory bandwidth problems. Therefore, I rolled back to F3 till a newer version came out. I flashed just last night and as I'm typing, I'm running my Q6600 at 400 FSB (1st time ever!!) and my memory at 4-4-4-12 2T at 400 Mhz! So, I finally reached my 1:1 OC ratio - awesome!

For a little clarification, you are running now at 375 FSB which is great. If you have DDR2 800 mems, your ideal FSB would be 400 which would make it an even 1:1 ratio. Just make sure that your memories modules are getting the right amount of power. My Corsairs can run at 4-4-4-12 2T at 2.1v. The motherboard default everything to JEDEC settings which makes mine 5-5-5-18 at 1.8v. I don't like that. Look at your memory's optimum settings, use CTRL F1 to access the advanced BIOS menu in M.I.T., change the timings, and up the voltage if need be. If your mems need 2.2v to run at optimum timings, then you'd have to choose +0.4 in the advance menu.

Oh, and for your BIOS question, like me, give F6 a try, if you need the link (it wasn't posted on the web site as of last night), here it is:

http://www.gigabyte.us/Support/Mothe...ProductID=2560

OC is all about experimentation, stability and temperatures. I recommend you use Core Temp or Speedfan. Use Orthos to stress test and memtest to check for memory errors.

Get that FSB up and post!!


EDIT: It's up on the webbie now.

I wouldn't upgrade the BIOS unless you have a specific reason for doing so. You can look at gigabyte's website at their latest BIOS and see what all has been updated since F3, but unless you see something that you would like to upgrade for, I wouldn't.

The best place to start for RAM timings and OCing is to just set your memory multiplier in the BIOS to 2.00. That will let you acheive the highest OC possible. Let me know if you have any trouble doing that.

I HATE to double post, but rcf22, use QBIOS to update the BIOS and NOT @BIOS. There's a million posts on Overclock.net that tells horror stories about BIOS updates within windows that went south. It'll brick your mobo if something goes wrong.

Download, use floppy, and QBIOS during bootup. I believe it's F9 or END. In addition, when you're done flashing, SHUT DOWN the pc - no rebooting.

Clear the CMOS via jumper and battery then turn your machine back on. I know it sounds like a massive pita but it's worth it. Once you get the hand of this little procedure, you're that much closer to becoming one of the OC minions.

Glad I found this thread. A few BIOS questions, if you guys don't mind.

#1 If I set the System Memory Multiplier (SPD) to "auto". It thinks my memory is 667Mhz. I'm absolutely positive it's 533Mhz ram. Any idea why?

#2 Robust Graphics Booster. That's only used if your using the built in graphics, correct? (Which I'm not)

#3 Advanced Bios Features. I have it all at default. Should I mess with any of those?

#4 Power Managment Setup. All at default. Should I mess with any of those?

Thanks in advance.
