E3110 & GA-EP35-DS3R LGA 775 OC problems

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am new to OC, and fairly new to building my own system, but I have been using home computers since 1978.

I have a GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3R LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX MOBO and a XEON E3110 and 4GB 2x2GB Patriot 1066 RAM XFX GeForce 8600 GT 256 MB and a Zalman 9700 LED cpu cooler and an ANTEC EarthWatt 430 PSU and Vista Ultimate 64 bit with SP1.

If I try to use the windows gigabyte software OC utility "tune up" I can set the bus speed maybe 10 or 11 mhz faster, and then it crashes.

If I set it in bios, any amount of MHZ increase will cause it not to boot, but to cycle.

If i choose the M.I.I options for CIA 2, even setting it to cruise will cause it to crash after windows starts to load.

Please not I am not changing any voltages, anyhting like that, just a basic FSB very very very small tweak.

Thanks for any tips you can give me.

And oh yes, I thought I would try to flash the BIOS but by mistake I got the beta version and so now my computer wont boot into windows even with all the OC stuff turned off, so I am on my amd athalon now and downloading bios and then will install a floppy drive ibn my new build and will use QFLASH to get a working BIOS in there again.

Is anyone else using a GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3R LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX MOBO?

Thanks, I am still very new, I have read greaysky's guide and that has helped a lot.

I am a little bit confused about memory mhz.

I have 1066mhz memory, but from what I understand, I want to set my fsb to 400 mhz, my memory to 400mhz, and then times 2?

If I understand correctly to start the processor and the memory should be at the same MHZ
?
