E8400 + GA-P35 Problems*SOLVED!*

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I'm currently using the E8400 + Gigabyte GA-P35 DS3L combo. No matter what settings I chose in my BIOS, windows won't recognize my Clock speed, but it will recognize if I raise my volts. I have my multi at 9x, and I can go up to 5Ghz(555)... but nothing changes. Have any of you heard of this problem? Any help would be much appreciated.

What part of that article are you trying to point out?

Maybe I should be more specific... when I received this CPU a few months back it went to 4.0Ghz at 1.33v no problem. It must have reverted back at some point without me knowing because when I checked today windows showed 3.0Ghz again. So this is the point I'm at.

I have no clue either, what BIOS version do you have? Some of the older BIOSs don't fully support the E8400, I had to get the F8b for it to work.

What bios version do you have? F8a (or above) is needed for Wolfdale.
Do you have any profiles saved in bios?
post #7 of 14
If you do, reboot and load optimised defaults.
Reboot again and load your saved profile.

I never knew about profiles until researching answers today... so I didn't have any saved.

Load optimised defaults (hit delete on boot-up to access bios)
Do all your changes you want.
F11 save cmos to bios
name it
F10 save and exit set-up
When it re-boots hit delete again
F12 load cmos from bios
Choose profile, F10 and re-boot

Okay, thanks for the info... but I still can't save anything worth saving because it won't let me overclock at all.
