XIL3,

If that's an AGP 6800GT you are using, enable the Deep P2P FIFO in the BIOS. Since, 6800GT is already native pci design it is already an agp bridged chip so it needs this option enabled. Look at the Thermals too.

Keep us updated on how turns out. Keep up the good fight.

I am about to get this board and pair it up with:

Athlon 64 4000+
2x512MB Mushkin 2-3-2 PC3200 high performance memory
ATI Radeon 9800 Pro AGP (moving up to Radeon X1900XT PCI-E later)
Maxtor 120GB SATA 1.5 HDD (adding a SATAII drive later for OS/programs and using 120GB SATA 1.5 for storage)

I was wondering if you guys could maybe post a step-by-step guide to setting up the board from scratch for those of us just getting one. That would help out big time.

From what I have read about this board, these are the things I need to do first:

1) Do a BIOS update to v2.20 (if not already shipped with that version)

2) Get the SATA driver from (ASRock or ULI?) onto a floppy so I can press F6 during my Windows XP Pro install (like normal)

3) After I get to my desktop, install the drivers from the ULI website? 1695 I think?

4) Anything special I need to do when upgrading my primary HDD to SATAII and my video card to PCI-E?

Basically I'm talking about all the things to get the board running before installing all the drivers for my hardware, then things to do later after adding newer hardware (SATAII and PCI-E) Do we not use any drivers from ASRock, just ULI?

Somebody fill me in.

Been a pc user for over 20 years (Dragon 32 originally!!) but never overclocked. Read a lot (huge amount) of info on this fantastic forum. Had the dual sata asrock for about 6 months with an AMD 64 3200+ but a 3700+ san diego arrives on monday and I fancy a go at overclocking. I am hoping to dabble over the weekend to get the feel. I am basically after a step by step idots guide detailing which bios settings to go into and what to alter.

My full specs are:

Asrock dual sata2 Mobo with 1.6 bios
AMD 64 3200+ venice (soon to be 3700+ san diego)
1 Gig Corsair Value Select (2* 512 dual channel)
Gigabyte 6600GT Silent Pipe PCIe
Termaltake PurePower TWV 430w PSU
Seagate Barracuda 160 gig IDE
Case is from X-case, it's an atrix but I cant remember the exact model.

Currently using stock cpu cooling but I do have available 2* silenX 120mm fan, 1* 92mm silenX fan and 1* 80mm Noiseblocker S2 fan. Not all fans are currently in use but they can be if you guys recommend so.

If a guide already exists and I have missed it I apologise.

Any help is most appreciated.

Charliedog........

P.S I have slight visual impairment and muscular tremor so soldering is waaaaay scary for me, so if I can get away without it I would feel safer!

@charliedog. This is a class forum for advice as long as you have some basic knowledge of overclocking , I have the same board and CPU (3700+) so i'll be happy to give you any advice with your overclock. I hope you get a good stepping on your new 3700+

Has anyone used the current 2.20 BIOS instead of 1.90? If so, how does it compare when it comes to OCing options?

Yes JB, as I understand it you can run both, but obviously with different monitors. Or you could have 1 running your media centre, the other a monitor, if your system can handle it.

I haven't checked this yet, however i set my processor to default clocks, and re-installed the drivers and I didn't have a freeze for a few days, then I just overclocked it to 2.4, it will not let me go past 2.5, i tried everything, I couldn't get past it(either windows would crash, or the pc wouldn't boot normally)...however it reaches 2.6 stable when running on 1 core....
Looks like your power supply advice wasn't bad afterall...I tried reinstalling drivers and formatting and reinstalling multiple times with the old power supply and it still kept freezing...
Also I scored 6,043 with my 6800GT on 3dmark05!!! I believe its a very high score for that card...overclocked to 416/1180...then after i raised the core speed to high the pc crashed and then i noticed the framerate was slower on the very first game test...at the same setting, so I set it to 415/1200 and I got 6,018...along with my 4200@2.42ghz(i changed back to auto voltage, and default multiplier because the freezing was still there on manual)...the ram timings couldn't be improved, 3dmark would crash so the ram was overclocked to 440mhz ddr...i saved a picture this time...

Alright well to start you off...
-In the Bios go to advanced settings
-Cpu Configuration
-Change your overclock mode to pci-e async
-set the 200 to 220...this should pretty much be a guaranteed overclock
I believe the 3700 is 2.2ghz...which the 200mhz external clock is multiplied by 11 to achieve....changing it to 220 = 2.43ghz ( I have an x2 4200+ it is almost like 2 of your processors minus half the cache, so our overclocking shouldn't be so different)
Leave Boot Guard Failure on at all times, if you go to high and your monitor is blank wait a bit and turn your pc off, repeat once more and then when you turn it back on it restores default clocks, it is a nice feature, you don't want to disable(I think its the boot guard failure that does this ) well
You should probably disable cool n quiet, I disabled spread spectrum, some of my freezing problems went away, but this was on a dual core processor...
Lower down are the RAM options, make sure your Rams frequency is at
400mhz, this motherboard autoset mine at 333mhz...I disabled flexibility option, I think it lowers your RAM speed and gives you better timings, didn't give me better performance though...
Run some benchmarks and if its all running well you can try to mess with more advanced options
your pc might fail to boot properly if you go to 240 right away but you can try it and you have to turn ur pc off twice after waiting at least 10 seconds and then it will restore default clocks....240 would make your processor about 2.64ghz...it might not work doing it this way...
So the other way would be to set the voltage and multiplier manually...10x multiplier and I am not sure what voltage to put, but then the external clock needs to be changed to 260...and lower your ram speed to 333mhzs it will overclock itself 120mhz...you might have to lower it even more than 333mhz, maybe to 266, try both..
anyone feel free to correct me if i am wrong on anything, I haven't overclocked for too long myself...
also I hope I didn't tell you anything you already knew...

PS: You are recieving advice from a guy who didn't exist when you used your first computer...lol...

Dude,

Terrific 3DMark2k5 score. Should have no problem running the latest games.
Do you know how much silver conductive pens cost? Have to use one for the volt-mod on the asrock dual sata2.
A tad more voltage should take care of my stabilty problem at 2.6
