question about GA-P35-DS3L

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have a question for people that have the GA-P35-DS3L board. I just got this board, an Intel E4500 Core 2 Duo processor, and Kingston HyperX KHX6400D2LLK2/2GN DDR2-800 ram. I need help on figuring out overclocking settings on this board because I would like to get the best performance possible for gaming (specifically Crysis). I am kind of new to this although I do know some basics but any help would be greatly appreciated. Specifically, I want to keep the ram running at stock but I need to know the FSB, the multiplier, and the vcore for the processor to get at least 3ghz, and with that I also need to know what settings I should set the ram FSB, ratio, and timings. If possible, my ideal settings would be to have the CPU running at a 1066 FSB and the Ram at the stock 800FSB. Once again, thank you all in advance and I will be hoping to here from you soon.

start with these.

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

then this.

MB Intelligent Tweaker(M.I.T.)
CPU Host Clock Control Enabled
x CPU Host Frequency (Mhz) this is your fsb, set it to your desired o/c
PCI Express Frequency (Mhz) 100
System Memory Multiplier (SPD) 800. start by setting this at 2.0, if its too low put it at 2.5

then this

System Voltage Control
DDR2 OverVoltage Control: +.03v (default is 1.8v)
PCI-E OverVoltage Control [Normal]
FSB OverVoltage Control +0.2v
(G)MCH OverVoltage Control +0.2v
CPU Voltage Control (this is where you set your cpu volts) dont go over 1.5v

Thank for your info but i really dont want to up the voltage settings for RAM and seeing as how im not OCing the ram im hoping i dont have to, but if you guys have any other suggestion please let me know.

I also have a question about the E4500, will it allow the FSB to go up to 320 or in reality that would be 1280 FSB? And please dont redirect me to the E4500 threads im constantly looking around but i want to see if any of you guys can help me personally. Once again thank you all in advance.

I can help you out if you like.

There is no reason you should have to raise ANY voltage to hit 3GHz on your CPU besides your Vcore and Mem Voltage. More than likely your ram requires more than 1.8v to operate at it's specs. BTW on my board +.2v is actually 1.92v to the ram. I would recommend giving it +.2v for sure.

Nothing else should need to be changed voltage wise.

When you are at the main screen press CNRTL + F1 to enable memory settings. Give me one minute and I will post a pic of my bios screen.

Edit: Here is my PC at 3.0GHz. Not exactly familiar with the E4500 and it's multi but you should be able to get similar results.

You can see how much the voltages on this board vary from where you set them in the bios.

Thanks alot you guys really helped, i just have one more question, im currently using a Delta Electronics 500w power supply but i know its pretty crappy so are there any suggestions from you guys on PSU i should get. Im not planning to do anything crazy or SLI i just wanna be able to overclock without overloading my PSU. Im looking for something preferably under $100. Once again thank you all in advance.

rosewill PSU's are some of my fav's and a 550w is about $50-$60

I also have one more question for those of you that are familiar with the Pentium D 820 processor. Its stock is 2.8ghz with a 14x multiplier. I hear it can go up to 4.2ghz with water cooling but i wanna do 3.5Ghz without the watercooling. What voltage should i use to keep it stable (keep in mind my PSU, graphics card, and SCSI hard drive) and what voltage should i not go over if im testing? I have tried some things and for XP it works at 3.5Ghz but during vista's boot the power cuts out at random times. what could be the problem. (Settings: 250 FSB, 14x, PCI-e set to Auto, SPD 3.0, stock voltage on all (does same at 1.4V for cpu also))

power cuts out? as in the computer shuts down? if so, that is a sign of either overheating, or overloading the power supply. my bet is on the latter, since your system is very heavy on the 12v rail, and i don't know the specs of your power supply, but i can't imagine it being too beefy on the 12v front.
