Noobie: Ram Multi on Gigabyte P35-DS3L?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Noobie OCer here. Just bought my new rig last friday. This is my 1st OC Adventure since I havent tried to OC with my last AMD rig since my ECS is AGP unlocked.

1) How do you set Ram multipliers 1:1 / 2:3 / 4:5 in bios?
It only has this:

System Speed Multiplier (SPD) - Auto,3.33,4.0+,2.00,2.40,3.20,2.50,3.00 etc..

2) I have already made the necessary preparations to OC like setting PCIE 100,C1E/EISTdisable. All voltages at stock and running at 2Ghz stock. I already run prime95 Stable at stock speed for 4 hours at 37C Idle 59C Load on Stock Cooler.

3) I only want to OC at a respectable 3.0Ghz since its to hot in this country. 30-35C Ambient at the moment since its summer. Anyone can show me a step-by-step how-to to reach 3Ghz using E2180 & Gigabyte-P35-DS3L mobo at F6 Bios? or post their settings.

Thanks to all those that would help..

FSB x RAM multi = RAM Mhz

Try dropping the multi to 9x, setting the FSB to 333, and setting RAM multi to 2.4

333FSB x 9 multi = 2779 Mhz CPU freq. 333FSB x 2.4 RAM multi = 799.2 RAM Freq.

This should be a decent starting point, at least.

wrong terminology =P

1) How do you set Ram dividers 1:1 / 2:3 / 4:5 in bios?
It only has this:

System Speed Multiplier (SPD) - Auto,3.33,4.0+,2.00,2.40,3.20,2.50,3.00 etc..

I edited my original post above to show what I meant. My DS3R variant has the same options as your L version.

It does the same thing as RAM dividers, you just have to do the math a little different.

This is really my first time. Its quite embarassing, correct me if im wrong. I want to reach 3ghz. I will adjust my FSB to 300 x 10 = 3Ghz. But the memory will be 300 x 4 = 1200 at stock. But with 2:3 divider this would be 300 x 2 / 3 = 200?

Or just set the System Speed Multiplier (SPD) - Auto? and up the FSB to 300?

Like I was saying in my first post, if you want to keep your RAM @ 800Mhz (which I recommend for now... Better to overclock ONE component at a time, that way you know what component you're stressing when you reach a limit.), Set your BIOS to the following for a baseline of 3.0 Ghz:

Set CPU multi to 9x

Set SPD to 2.4

Set FSB to 333

you might need a slight upward adjustment to your CPU voltage for this, but I SERIOUSLY doubt it. It should be able to boot & run fine for you at those settings.


I suggest a 9x multi for two reasons.

1. The math wont allow for you to run both the CPU @ 3000Mhz and the RAM @ 800Mhz with a 10x multi. You would need the option of a 2.66 Multi to allow that.

2. A higher FSB will give you a little bi better performance, and I know that chipset is MORE than capable of 333Mhz, and a lot more.

Lower Multi / Higher FSB is better?
this is cooler & better than staright 300 x 10?
So At 3Ghz speed all voltages including DDRV is OK at stock?

The settings I gave you should be fine at stock voltages. If you do have booting problems, which as I said I seriously doubt, then just very slightly raise the CPU voltage, and possibly the Northbridge voltage. Unless you got a real dog of a motherboard (they do vary a bit from unit to unit) you shouldn't have to raise voltages at all for this.

Your memory voltage will be just fine at stock, because you're not overclocking the memory at all with those settings.

Cooler & better? Well, heat really shouldn't be an issue with either settings (300 x 10 or 333 x 9). Better? a higher FSB is always preferable with an Intel. Where low latencies were the most important thing to strive for with an AMD processor, BANDWIDTH is king with the Intels. Higher FSB and higher memory Mhz are both very helpful to adding performance to an Intel processor.

You cant set ram timings to 1:1 or 2:3 directly. That is a ratio of what you are getting when your setting the RAM and the FSB up in the BIOS.

For example if your FSB is 333 and your ram is running at at 667 DDR speed then that will equal a ration of 1:1. (DDR standing for Double Data Rate so the 667 is cut in half which equals 333)

Play around with them a bit to get a good speed. but remember the higher the speed then the looser the timing have to be. RAM can take a good week to overclock and get good timings and MHz

Im at 3Ghz now! Yehey! Wohoo!! My First OC! Need Help in making this 4-6hrs Prime Stable.

Current Settings:

vCore & DDRV/NBV/FSBV - Stock /[Normal] in bios
vCore at 1.232 after vDroop on CPU-Z
FSB 333 x 9 (I only wanted to reach 3Ghz..Thanks Witchfire!!! )
Mem at 800MHZ / 2.40 (5:6) Divider/ 6-6-6-18 Timings at [Auto] timings setting.

Using CPU-Z 1.44 / CoreTemp 0.97 / Everest Ulitimate 2008 / Prime95 v25.6


At FSB 334 it would not post. If set again It would post but would automatically change the mem timings to 6-7-7-19. So Im sticking with 333 x 9 at 6-6-6-18 Mem Timings.

Run prime95 for 20 minutes then I encountered the first Prime95 error of my life.


Ambient: 30-35C Estimate (Hot Summer in the Asia Pacific - No Shirt & Sweating while OCing )
Ocing at the hottest time of the year would let me know my max temps.

Core Temps at: Idle - 40C Load - 70C (both Read the same by CoreTemp and Everest)
Motherboard Temps - 46C Max
Motherboard Alarm of 70C goes off at 68C Core Temp. I reset it at 80C


My goal is to reach 3Ghz at Stock voltages at 4-6hrs Prime Stable. Ive seen a lot of people achieve this. According to Kingstons site, my Value Ram is spec to operate at 1.8V (+/- 0.1V). Is my memory holding me back or the vCore/NBV/FSBV? Do I need to +.01V? It reads 1.87V in Everest.AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE I WANT TO REMAIN AT STOCK!! Its to hot in my country..

Any help woluld be greatly appreciated..Thanks to all that would help..
