Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L Thread - Page 82

post #811 of 4644
Greetings Njikolaj!

The only thing I can think of to quickly try is raising your vcore (CPU Voltage Control). It's entirely possible that your chip's just not getting quite enough voltage to remain stable. As well, you may want to look at your memory. It seems from what you've posted that it's not running at a 1:1 ratio. Maybe try setting your System Memory Multiplier to 2.0 and see if that helps as well. This will make your memory run slower than its actual rating (it will run at 667 MHz if you get your FSB to 333), but it may help with stability and chances are you won't take a big performance hit, especially if you make sure your timings are at stock values (you may even be able to tighten them).

See if that helps, and good luck!

Currently building a rig for a friend using this board. I hope its up to the task on a Q6600 that I intend to try and reach 3.6Ghz on air. I'll see how far I get.

I overclocked to 3.4Ghz on my Q6600 with 1.55v in bios which is around 1.5v in windows and 1.47v on load and I need all those voltage in order for it to stable p95. Can't really complain since it is a 1Ghz overclock, but just wondering if there is any other way to tweak the motherboard so I can get higher clock since I am greedy or is my cpu already reaching the limit. My ram is at around DDR 1100 speed at 5 5 5 15 timing with +0.3v. FSB and MCH voltage are both +0.1v. I even gave it a crazy 1.6v bios vcore to the cpu and can't p95 stable too. Also, is there anyway to fix the vdroop? It is a bit silly for my board. I disabled all 3 power saving things already. Thanks!

I am running my stuff on water already, even with that 1.5vcore, my load is only around 40-45C on all cores. Wondering if f6 of f7 will give better overclocking.

Coelocanth, Vcore at how high? I dont want to burn anything...

Its very weird to work for a whole day, than after restart> default speeds... If the Vcore is not enough, why it works at all??

I've got the exact same components as you - except for the case; I bought a Ultra m998. Great minds must think alike, eh?

Yes. After four weeks of exhaustive research on mobos, RAM, CPUs, and graphic cards I can say this is the best budget board out there.

SgtSpike, thanks for the heads up on the SATA DVD drive. I had no idea they even made those until I read your post. I found a really nice Lite-On SATA DVD drive on Newegg for a decent price. I may buy two of these.

Seems just about every reviewer I've found who has this board is using the G.SKILL RAM. Must be good stuff.

Oh, but of course!

Is the G.Skill RAM really that good at the price? Seems like it's practically stealing! Are their any really noticable improvements/differences over the G.Skill to say getting like Corsair XMS or Crucial Ballistix that are around like $60-$70?

I don't think you'll gain anything by going with the G.Skill over any other type of RAM. At that price point, they are all basically the same thing. The cheap G.Skill DDR2-800 (red spreaders) is great for budget systems. I'm using it and like it. It just doesn't OC really at all. About 825MHz is max for it. But for the money, it does the job just fine.

Basically all of the RAM in the same price range is going to get you about the same. It's not until you hit the G.Skill HZ's that you really have RAM you can push to high OC's. But with a budget board and budget CPU, 800MHz is more than you need anyway.

The XMS2 and Ballistix are for OCing. The G.SKILL is just all around good RAM at a decent price.
