GA-P35-DS3L and E2180. Won't OC at all.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi,

After putting together my PC today with an E2180, P35 DS3L and 2Gb of PC6400 Ballistix RAM, it just won't OC. It boots to windows fine, no problems. I've already upped the ram voltage to 2.2v as the Crucial site says and set the timings to 4-4-4-12. That all works ok.

However, when trying an OC, even raising the FSB by 5 or 10mhz, I save the BIOS and it boots up, halfway through posting, and then just reboots with the default BIOS settings of 10* 200Mhz FSB. I've turned all the stuff off such as speedstep and the CPU throttling. I've tried having the PCI-E speed set both to auto and to 100. Someone said that they'd heard of this problem before, and changing the PCI-E speed may help. I tried 102 but it still won't work.

Any ideas? I've tried both the f7 BIOS that was on it already and now I'm using the F8f but it still won't work. It's driving me crazy:swearing:

TIA

Have you checked your cpu voltage? PCI-E should always stay at 100, it rarely needs to be increased.

You also said you changed memory timings. What If you leave them be?

Thanks for the reply. I managed to get it working by resetting the CMOS twice. Once wasn't enough for some reason.

Thanks anyway

its cause of your ram settings, for now you shoulkd set them to auto, when you get your cpu upt to speed check in cpu z the timings then tighten from there. keep the voltage at 2.2V just set ram to auto, put performance enhance to standard

Ah yes, I forgot about Gigabyte's auto reset. I am pretty sure it only resets fsb settings, or the most recent settings changed, which in your case was probably fsb since you set the ram before trying to raise the fsb.

I have the same setup on my alt rig. Just lower your RAM multiplier.
