GA-EP35-DS3L Questions (DES in particular) - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Thread Starter 
Actualy I am not going to overclock for quite some time, is this a problem for stock settings? I heard it can be if your realy useing allot of resources for gameing, so that's why I am so concerned. I will be playing Call of Duty 4 on max settings, as it comes with my XFX Video Card. Powering off at night is a must for me for several reasons- lightning storms, and power consumption being the big ones.

If you do not plan to overclock it would not matter in the least. Your CPU will run at stock speed with stock voltage. You should have zero problems.

Thanks for the clarification. Now if I could just have 5 or so more owners verify this who use 8800 GTS G92 cards or greater running games like COD4 and Crysis on max I would be most pleased.

By not remembering voltages I assume that it happens when a person overclocks then it reverts back to stock settings. If you are not going to over clock, your settings will always be stock and you should never have a problem.

My DS3L did this to me a few times. I cleared the cmos and it was fixed. It might not be the same, bu when my settings changed they went from o/c to stock. You will be running stock, so they really can't change.

Are you sure about this? The E boards are a little different or so I have heard in how they manage energy.

I believe EP35 DS3L limits the Vcore. I got one and I set my Vcore to 1.45, but on CPU-Z it says 1.264 to 1.280..and I can only overclock it to a max of 3.2ghz sadly.
Anyone know how to turn it off?

That is a problem with the BIOS. It will not update your voltage changes. You can reset the CMOS, then it should retain the changes in voltages that you make. However, overnight, for me at least, It resets the voltage to stock.
