IP35 Pro or GA-P35-DS4

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Which is better for overclocking Q6600 G0 with Crucial Ballistix RAM to at least 3.2GHz? What are the pros and cons of each? The Gigabyte board seems to have better MOSFET/NB/SB cooling and better power regulation? Does this really mean much because the IP35 Pro has also seen some serious quad ocing action. Lastly, how is the P35-DS4 version different from the EP35-DS4 version? Also, should I use a TRUE or TT120?

the P35 vs the EP35, is just an "energy saving" option. it as some LEDs at the top to show power usage, and throttles own power when idle, but only on stock settings. I had the same question nGA-P35 vs GA-EP35, and they said get the P35 as it's cheaper, and it' the same thing.

I've had both the IP35 Pro and the GA-P35-DS3L (they have to be pretty similar) and both get me to 3.2Ghz (400x8) easily.

I would say you just decide, except for I had problem after problem with my IP35 Pro and finally gave up on it with the final problem the rendered it useless (the little post led would freeze at "9.0." (which isn't listed in the manual or found on the internet) and nothing would come up on the screen).

If you're looking to go the Gigabyte route, there was some one who posted an electrical fire with a voltage component thing at the top with the DS3. The DS4 has heatsinks to hopefully cause that sort of a problem not to happen.

I love my IP35 Pro. It's been holding 1800mhz FSB for over a month. uGuru, is by far one of the most underrated utilities out there. It is 100% stable and saves countless hours of going back to the BIOS to tweak your OC settings.
