Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L Thread - Page 85

post #841 of 4644
Hey guys--I have a semi-urgent question:

The E8400 is finally in stock at newegg (woot) and I'm getting primed to place my order. I'm pretty excited, and while I'm still a little worried about getting a compatible BIOS for this motherboard, I'm sure I can figure out a solution if I don't.

My question is about ram. I was thinking about going with 4gb with this kit: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231122 but I was wondering if anyone had any insight on RAM they could share with me in relation to overclocking. My initial goal is only 3.6GHz (which is 1:1--so I shouldn't have any problems, right?) but if I could push the CPU further, I'd be pretty willing to do that. The first user review for the product I listed complains about the RAM's usefulness in overclocking--should I be worried?

If so, is there another kit that anyone would recommend?

Thanks! Can't wait to join the party!

Hey awesome post that I can relate with. I'm new to overclocking, but this sight has been great to help me out. I just finished with my first build about 3 weeks ago, using the GA-P35-DS3L. Currently I've got my Core2 Quad Q6600 overclocked to 3.2GHz(355x9), vcore 1.375, DRAM 2.2v(for my 1066 Ram). I've got a couple questions I've been wanting to ask people who know what they are talking about, and this looked like a good place to do that:
1. I was wondering at an over clock of 3.2GHz, do I need to worry about increasing any of the other voltages besides the vcore voltage? Like FSB or MCH? PCIe? Currently I have not increased any of them except for the vCore voltage. I've got a MSI NX8800GT 512MB videocard running at factory 'stock' frequency.
2. I was wondering whether CPU core temperatures looked okay.??.. I got an ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro for cpu cooling. Currently CPU-Z is showing me at 'idle' my temperatures are 42(core0) 36(core1) 42(core2) 36(core3)...... they are usually somewhere close to that range. Using Prime95 the temperatures 'peaked-out' at 65(core0) 57(core1) 65(core2) 57(core3). This was after about 1 1/2 hours of testing, with no crashes yet. From what I've learned through research, those temps seem okay, but higher than some people.
I was wondering what your thoughts on these questions are. If you can direct me to any links that could help me learn more, I'd appreciate it; or you have and advice, please feel teach me with your vast knowledge!!
Thanks,
Nick

Hi, I recently gathered everything to build my computer and it has been running stable at 3.2ghz but when it comes to benchmarking its another story. Here are the settings in BIOS and screen shots from (ATITOOL, Memset, Core Temp, CPU-Z,...). Can you guys give me some advice on improving my benchmarks. Example: Super-PI 1MB (42-43secs) Sandra memory ~8000, Sandra CPU lower then c2d t2300.

Robust graphic booster: Auto
Cpu Clock Ratio: 7
Cpu Frequency: 3.20GHz (458x7)
Cpu Host Clock Control: Enable
Cpu Host Frequency (MHz): 458
PCI Express Frequency (MHz): 100
C.I.A.2: Disbled
Performance Enhanced with: Turbo
System Memory Muliplier (SPD): 2.40
Memory Frequency (Mhz): 1099
***System Voltage Optimized****
System Voltage Control: Auto
DDR2 Overvoltage Control: +0.5V (2.3V)

HDD S.M.A.R.T Capability: Disabled
Limit CPUID Max. to 3: Disabled
No-Execute Memory Protect: Enabled
CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E): Disabled
CPU Thermal Monitor 2(TM2): Disabled
CPU EIST Function: Disabled
Virtualization Technology: Enabled
Full Screen LOGO Show: Disabled
Init Display First: PCI

THANKS!!!! ANY ADVICE WOULD BE GREAT

I've seen a lot people buying G-Skill RAM of late. I don't know much about it. Hopefully someone can give you some answers with regards to that kit.

I personally love my Mushkin RAM. It's running at 900 MHz (stock is 800) and I have room for more. I've read from a Mushkin representative that this RAM should be able to OC to 1000 MHz without any problems.

As for OCing RAm in general, I'd say try to keep your 1:1 ratio if you can, add more voltage (within specs of course) if you need it, and just try to keep your timings as tight as you can. Generally, you'll probably have to loosen the timings to 5-5-5-15 or thereabouts if you have a large overclock.

I'm building my first computer by myself ( *gulp* ) and everyone keeps telling me this CORSAIR RAM is great for OCing.

corsair sucks for OC get some nicron D9GMH crucial

corsair sucks peroid except for high end ram thats way too much and their psus

um look at corsair

http://ramlist.ath.cx/ddr2/

they use mostly elpedia chips which suck at overclocking

now crucial they use all Micron well they are micron but they use a lot of the best OC stuff D9GMH and D9GKX

corsair high end dominator stuff has MicronD9 but its way too expensive

you can get crucial pc2-6400 that has D9GMH and will be the same as corsair dominators for a much cheaper price
