Sorry wiggy2k7, I most have mixed up the posts, I though you had Nvidia board but I see you have a Gigabyte Intel P35 and thatÂ´s a big different.
About your memory, they are good ones you just now how to tweak they.
Please hear me out.
I have done some test with ASUS Rampage Formula, E8400 and Kingston HyperX 1200, yes I now you have a quad and P35 chip but the different shouldnÂ´t be that big. I have done the same test with ASUS Blitz Formula SE (P35).
With the P35,X38 and X48 some boardmakers open up BIOS so we consumer got access to MCH Read Delay (tRD) also know as Performance Level, if you have high number in Performance Level it takes longer to transfer data from the system bus (FSB) to the memory bus and vice versa, latency increase and this is probably thee most important setting, sometimes more important then timing.
If you donÂ´t have Memset you should get it, because with it you can check all your mem timing and also your Performance Level (PL).
HereÂ´s some result
356 9 3204 890 4-4-3-5 PL9
356 9 3204 890 4-4-3-5 PL6
400 8 3200 800 3-3-3-5 PL6
400 8 3200 800 4-4-3-5 PL7
425 8 3400 850 4-4-3-5 PL7
375 9 3375 901 4-4-3-5 PL6
So as you see, you should get better with 800 but it all comes down to how aggresive Gigabyte have made your board and if you can change you Performance Level. You have to look into that and see if you can find some guide about Gigabyte DS3.
You have to push your NBvolt to 1.50-1.65 to reach some of the PL numbers.
Have you maxed out at 890 4-4-3-5?
Some have reach 950-975 with timing 4-4-4-12 memvolt 2.3, you may try it.
