ok, did both of those. Now I guess I should try cold booting. thanks for helping

Both are in your M.I.T tab.

PCI Express Frequency is pretty self-explanatory (set it 100 MHz).

System Memory Multiplier is where you sync your memory to your FSB (scroll through the list of values, as they're not in numerical order). you want to set it to 2.0, as suggested. This will give you a 1:1 ratio.

Set your System Voltage Control setting to Manual.

As well, I suggest manually setting your vcore (CPU Voltage Control), since the board will overcompensate when you overclock and feed your chip more power than necessary.

Go into your DDR2 OverVoltage Control and set it to your RAM's rated voltage. The default on this board is 1.8 volts, so you may have to bump it up by +.1 or +.2, maybe even +.3 volts to get ti to your RAM's rated voltage.

I'd also suggest going into your Advanced BIOS Features tab and disabling EIST (set the CPU EIST Function to Disabled). This is simply a power saving option that reduces your FSB multiplier to x6 when your computer is idle. I've read this can interfere with overclocking. Once you've reached your final desired OC and you're stable, you can try to re-enable it and see if it affects your stability or not.

Hope that helps.

It's a cooloer master hyper tx2. I remember on one of these posts that someone said that adding V to the mem seems to help stability and my memory according to the website requires 1.9 V and since I don't know what the default V for mem on the mb I just raised it to +.2 V. Lets see how that goes. It's really wierd because it runs perfect all the time but when I shut it off it must not shutdown smoothly or something and the MB must think that it has crashed or either doesn't power up smooth and defaults cpu settings. BTW, the MB I believe came with F4 or F5 bios and it did the same thing with that bios, that was the first thing i tried to change to fix the problem. One more thing, I had on the cpu the V set to 1.5625 V inbios which results in 1.312 V cpu-z. Don't know if this is causing the problem so I just went ahead and upped the bios to 1.375 V which gave me 1.328 V in cpu-z. I coul not get 1.325 V. Let's hope this works because theres not much else to do.
Well, I've tried everything to prevent bios from reseting cpu to default settings. I've disabled usb legacy support for mouse, keyboard, and storage devices. I have no external hard drives pluged in. The only things plugged in are my all-in-one printer webcam, mouse, and keyboard; all in usb. All the legacy parallel and serial ports are disabled. I've tried all sorts of voltage options on MB, MEM, CPU, PCI-e, etc, etc. Both my hard-drive and dvd-rom are parallel ata so I've disabled the serial ata controller, I've disabled the onboard sound since I'm using an audigy 2zs. I' got plenty of cooling; cpu is cool to touch and I have a 120mm rear and 2 front 80mm the whole system is real cool. Running the latest Bios F7 and tried the original bios that came with MB I belive it was F6 and this is a rev 2 board. I'm very disappointed. I had high hopes for this MB/CPU combo when I purchased it and now this. At lest I am able to save different bios profiles, so I have a profile for default settings and one for OC that I'll load when I really need it. Just wish I didn't have to do that, the E4300 is way way faster at 3.0 Ghz. One last thing I'm going to try is change the power supply. It's a little far feteched but it's the last thing I can think of. Maybe the voltages aren't stable or something. I'll report back agin when that is done. THX

Also, I'm not trying to be a dick head, or maybe it's becasue I haven't had any coffee yet, and Dirtyerny, this is not aimed directly at you, but: Does anyone even bother to READ THE MANUAL that came with the motherboard? I've seen many many questions asked in this thread and many that are repeated over and over and over that could be simply answered by just reading the manual that came in the box with the motherboard. You can even download it from Gigabyte's site if you lost it. Heck I even took mine to work with me and read the thing 3 times before I even attempted to change any clock settings. Please people, READ YOUR MANUAL!!

OK, rant over, I'm going to get some coffee now.

Anyone know of the Corsair TWIN2X4096-6400C5DHX is compatible with the DS3L?

This board seems to be pretty tolerant of many different brands/speeds/types. I've scanned through the "system specs" in this thread and all of us seem to be using something a little different, so I'd say chances are good.

I am planning to get:

Mobo: GA-P35-DS3L
CPU: E6750
RAM: Crucial Ballistix Tracer PC2-8000


I already have a Thermalright Ultra 120 eXtreme for the cpu and a Thermalright HR-05 SLI/IFX for the chipset.

What kinds of clocks should I expect for 24/7 use?
post #609 of 4644
I'm running 3308 MHz 24/7, and that's still at 1.356 VCore and load temps in the high 40s, so I have a lot of headroom to work with in upping my FSB and VCore. I'd say with good air cooling, 3.8GHz is within reach with a good board, and 4.0 isn't impossible with water.

Rcf22 has probably made a good estimate. I'm at 3.6 GHz with about 26c idle and 57 or 58c load. However, there's no way to really predict what you're going to get, since every chip will overclock slightly differently.
