Gigabyte EP45-UD3 Series Owners Guide - Page 819

post #8181 of 21186
Fahrenheit 451 was actually just Part 1 in the Playboy mag version, but then after it got published in there, he got all kinds of comments about it and people wanting to know more so he finished the story.

Hooray for 10th grade Honors English

Just caught on to the conversation. I use Auslogics Defrag or Perfect Disk or Power Defrag when I defrag. I don't remember which one, but one of them actually defrags and moves the MBR to contiguous segments too.

Speaking of cool software, I finally downloaded WinDirStat... WOW!!! What a cool piece of software. I was fixing a friends rig and he had an over whelmed HDD. So I used to it find the Files and Folders that were the largest and deleted the ones he didn't need. Freed up about 50% of his drive for him. It rocks!

No but it was something our teacher talked about. Apparently, M. Bradbury and Mr. Hefner were close buddies

This is the 1st PC that I built. I am a newbe at overclocking and want help from the forum.

The PC have these parts:
Intel Q9650
Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P
Corsair 4GB (2x2) TWIN2X4096-6400C5C DDR2 800
EVGA 512-P3-N871-AR GeForce 9800GTX 512MB
WD Caviar Black 1TB
Corsair CMPSU-450VX 450 Watt PS
Encore Wireless ENLWI-N 802.11N
Zalman CNPS7700-CU CPU Cooler - to be added shortly
SilverStone FM121B Case Fan 120mm
Sony Optiarc AD-7240S-OB DVD
Cooler Master Elite-360 (compact case)

I have played a bit with Gigabyte EasyTune 6 and set the QuickBoost to level 1 (3.6 GHz) and level 2 (3.8 GHz). At 3.8 GHz the temps went to high with the Intel stock CPU Cooler.

I will install the Zalman 7700-CU shortly and then it will be safe to play with OC.

I choose the Cooler Master Elite-360 for its small size. It is a well made case, but it gets crawded with all the PS cables (3 of them not being used …).

With some carrefull handling and clamping the cables the Zalman will fit nicely (and tight) ...

My questions are:

1-Shall I use the Gigabyte EasyTune?
2-If using EasyTune, is there a way to view and save the BIOS settings
after EasyTune chance them?
3-Or do the OC my self?
4-If so, what are the main settings I should change?
5-Is there a tutorial on OC the EP45-UD3P?
6-Is there a way to disconnect the unused cables form the PS without damaging it?
(I am not worried if I loose the warrantee on the PS)

Thanks for your recomendations …

rdru

PS: I posted this message on the Q9650 Club, but here is the proper place.

1-3.) Use the bios and overclock your self.

4-5.) Read thru this thread, all the answers for the most part and so many parameters for your setup are present. Just do a search for 9650 or 9550 in this thread and follow others MIT setups for a rough estimate of what you need to play with.

6.) Get a new psu. Back bone of the system. Thats alot of power to be pulling from a 450w psu. Even if it is a good one IMHO.

psu was what i was going to say too, i recon i draw about 440w and your gpu will pull more than mine.

loads of people willing to help with any questions you might have if and when you get stuck tho

you should hit 3.8/3.9ghz before you want to start pulling your hair out but its all fun

i am so green about the air temps you guys get, i like the cold me but its so bleeding mild here in the uk never gets very hot or very cold

i think its my ram i cant get it to post with my ram above 527 they would do 540 in my p35 but either i have damaged thet or the mch in this p45 cant push them as high

i dropped the fsb to test and tried the dividers to up my ram and they are my reason

bugga.

so i think thats me as high as i can go unless i can find some fast 2gb sticks for a good price as i dont really want to drop cash on ddr2 when it will be dea money spent on this setup in the long run.

i am thinking about spending on the stuff thats trasferable like hdd and gpu instead so...hey hum

still love this board

Madmax is right on all three counts.

dennyB is our resident q9650 guru. I am sure he will be along to help sooner or later. Download a copy of the MIT form from my sig and fill that out completely.

ET6 is a tool we use primarily for seeing what our voltages are on our desktop. Also, it can be used to make minor changes up or down, NEVER CLICK SAVE, it will crash your system.

You will need to download Memset too. It is like ET6 but for memory timings. Also, with it NEVER CLICK SAVE, use the Apply button.

Finally, you will need to find a Stress test to use. The popular ones are Prime95, OCCT, Linpak, and IBT. We here tend to use Prime95 most and can offer the most advice regarding it.

Most important rule: Small Steps. Make a change, then see what happens. Try not to change more than one voltage setting at a time. It makes it hard to tell what is going on if you make multiple tweaks.

I hit the wall trying to push past 533x9. I happens. But my problem might be my RAM too. As for you, have you tried adjusting you REFs?
