Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L Thread - Page 97

post #961 of 4644
Thanks for the help. However, I already have tried that to no avail. Seems like there shouldn't be so much voodoo required for something with no moving parts

I believe that at least partly due to minor fluctuations in voltage. I noticed on my OC that sometimes the voltage would fluctuate just a bit, and the temps would follow.

Speaking of temps, as long as you don't hit your thermal limit of 71 C (or whatever your chips rated at), you should be fine. However, I've read on many OCing threads that veteran OCers tend to prefer if the load temps are at around 60C or less.

Just to interject a note about temperatures...

It is generally a good idea to keep your temperatures a good 10c below your thermal spec when running prime95 and the like. The reason for this is simple: in real-world use, your ambient case temperature is going to rise significantly while gaming, or doing other intensive (especially graphically intensive) activities.

Though your processor likely will not be worked quite as hard while gaming as during prime95, your graphics card and other components are going to dump heat like crazy into your case. And even in a case with the best case cooling, it's still going to run your ambient up a good 2-3c at least. A raise in ambient generally equals the same raise in CPU temps, so it'll mean a 2-10c raise in temps for your CPU.

As an example, in my case (which has a few 80mm fans), on my current OC I get around 55c on the CPU under full load in prime95. When I game, I've seen that same temperature hit 64c.

Just something to keep in mind.

Ok, so I finally got around to fiddling with this board after FAH-SMP was taking its sweet time and have so far been impressed. Lots of voltage and memory options are a plus and auto cmos reset keeps me from having to pull the tower out of my desk. But onto the nitty gritty.

Currently I've got my E6600 at 3240 MHz (360*9)(Side note, Core Temp 0.95.4 is giving me 540*6) and Ive got it running at 50C at load stable for the last 20 min under orthos. Of course this will be running all night but for now its helped me determine where to set my voltage, specifically 1.375 vCore. I haven't fiddled with memory timings beyond setting the divider to 2.00 or any other voltage settings. Im wondering where you guys would go from here.

Hope to get back to this thread tomorrow night, thanks to everyone in advance for your input.

EDIT: Just failed Orthos at 52 minutes, gonna drop to 355 and reste.

Get you best CPU overclock stable, then work on the memory. Leave it at 2.00 until then.

My cores jump around a little bit, but not 6 degrees. I have always had up to a 5C difference between cores though, no matter how well the heatsink is seated. Core 0 used to always be the hottest, but now cores 2 and 3 run hottest for me. Here's what I'm getting now under load...

I tried everything that I can do, set ram timing, mch voltage, vdimm voltage, pci-e voltage, etc etc in bios and can't get 3.6 stable with all 4 cores. I guess it's because of the 1.3125 VID of my CPU. I gave up and settle down with 3.42G with my ram running at DDR 1216 speed. The CPU idles at around 16-20 degree C and not over 40 under load. I guess that's a good thing.

New Parts:
Motherboard: GA-P35-DS3L
Proc: Intel Pentium 4 - will be E8400 once I can update the bios
GPU: Gigabyte 8800GT
Ram: Crucial Ballistix PC6400

I took everything out of my current case and cleaned it out completely. I installed the new power supply, PCP&C 610W and the motherboard. I installed the P4 into the motherboard. I powered it on and everything starts up great and stays on. I continue installing one piece at a time and powering it up to make sure it works. Ram, then GPU, then SATA DVD drive and SATA HDD. After everything was installed I powered it up and everything starts fine, but there was no picture showing up on my monitor. I checked for loose plugs and connections and found the 4 pin 12 volt cable that goes near the processor wasn't in and plugged it in. Now when I power it on, it stays on for less then a minute, but the picture shows up and the computer is trying to boot. This is as far as I have gotten, I have taken everything out and reinstalled everything again to make sure it's in there the correct way. Any ideas on how to keep it on so I can install windows?

and am curious to know the settings for 4 X 1GB Corsair XMS DDR2, no prob with 2 X 1GB. Wont Boot past Memory with 4 X 1GB.
Any assistance appreciated.

I finally decided to ditch the Q6600 and just got a E8400
Trying to get it stable at 4.5G+ speed right now haha

So I cant get the computer to stay on when I plug in the 12v 4-pin connector near the CPU on this motherboard. With it unplugged, the computer stays on but nothing shows up on the display. With it plugged in, I can see the boot process but the computer turns off after about 30 seconds. Can anyone adv me on this?
