Gigabyte P35-DS4 and E6600 rev 1.0

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys
I have just upgraded my motherboard to the one mentioned above.I am completley useless at OC but was able to adjust me asrock 4coredual sata 2, fsb to reach an amaing 2.6 ghz (yippie

I bought this motherboard because i have heard good things about it but i entered the MIT section in the bios and was baffled, so i left it untouched. My specs are below:

CPU - core 2 duo E6600 standard HSF
RAM - Crucial Ballistix Tracer 2GB DDR2 PC2-6400
Graphics Card - Geforce 8800 GT

If anybodyhas a similar setup and can share some info that would be cool.
If anymore info is needed please let me know.

Thanks in advance

put your system specs in your sig, that'll help people.

I have no experience with gigabyte boards, but if you glance through the OCing guide in my sig (for the P5N-E) you'll get some of basics down. You wanna slowly (SLOWLY) increase your CPU FSB and do a quick stability check in windows (run a minute or two of Orthos). Then reboot and increase it some more. When you hit stability issues or crash during bootup, give the vcore a little bump. If vcore isn't helping, try increasing the NB voltage a little.

Also, presumably your BIOS uses a multiplier to determine the RAM speed. As you increase the CPU FSB you'll have to decrease that multiplier in order to keep from OCing your RAM past what it can handle. Try to keep your RAM speed at or below stock while you figure out how far you can push your chip on that stock cooler (I'm guessing ~3GHz).

Watch your temps with that stock cooler, though. Make sure you're using speedfan or coretemp to monitor temps.

Here are some settings you could use to get 3.2GHz with your E6600 assuming the CPU can handle 3.2GHz at 1.35v or less (this OC is very doable with these settings). These arent difinitive, it is all based on the CPU, but these settings are solid for the board itself and should get you started.

Advanced BIOS Features
CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E) Disable
CPU Thermal Monitor 2(TM2) Disable
CPU EIST Function (Note) Disable

MB Intelligent Tweaker(M.I.T.)
CPU Host Clock Control Enabled
x CPU Host Frequency (Mhz) 360
PCI Express Frequency (Mhz) 100
System Memory Multiplier (SPD) 800

System Voltage Control
DDR2 OverVoltage Control: +0.4v
PCI-E OverVoltage Control [Normal]
FSB OverVoltage Control +0.1 (might need +0.2 when running 400 FSB)
(G)MCH OverVoltage Control +0.1 (This is your northbridge voltage, might need +0.2 when running 400 FSB)
CPU Voltage Control 1.30v - 1.35v (this is your CPU's vcore, it might need less then 1.35v, or it might need a little bit more... only testing will tell)

Depending on what bios you have, you might have to press [CTRL+F1] in the main bios menu to access advanced memory timing options.




You also need to download CPU-Z to check settings from within windows. The main CPU tab and memory tab are the important ones. Also use CoreTemp to monitor your CPU's temp at idle and load. To put a load and stress test your OC, run Prime 95. All of these programs can be found in the downloads section.

thanks for the info man
Ill try some of your tips i am bit confused about the multiplier.
Are you saying everytime i increase the fsb i have to reduce the multiplier?

nice ericeod
Very helpful
If i am overclocking what would you say my max cpu temp should be, if stable?
Hope that makes sense

No, the multiplier can be set at x9 to start with. Then when you want to really push the system, you can chabge the Multiplier to x8 to really push the FSB. But I would recommend when starting out, to just leave it at x9 multi.

Then once you find the maximum CPU clock speed and are feeling more adventurous, drop the multi to x8 and try pushing the FSB up.

one more thing the settings you have given me to overclock to 3.2ghz, is this safe with a standard HSF?

The settings you gave me has pushed the cpu upto 3.2ghz and it seems to be running smoothly. The cpu temp is running at about 44 degrees per core.
Tnaks alot

I figured 1.35v might be a little overkill, but I I knew it would be stable! I personally can run my E6600 at 3.3GHz with 1.22v. So I would next try lowering the vcore to 1.3v and see if it is stable. If it is, try lowering some more, but do it a notch at a time.
