    Default EP35-DS4 + Q6600 overclock fails

    Hi,

    I am trying to overclock my q6600 G0 at a mild overlock, about 333x9 and in windows I haven been stable with that (at least that is waht OCCT says), with 1.3675vcore.. the problem is that *sometimes* when I reboot or when I start the PC from cold It reverts to the stock settings (266*9)..

    My PC is a Tagan 480 + Xigmatek (9cm) +4Gb Mushkin Redline 4-4-3-10 (800) + Galaxy 8800GT. Can anybody help me with bios setting? Now these are my setting and still reverting to stock.

    Thanks for replying,

    I've tried even with +0.25 (with 0.3 I got a non-booting system). My ram is and always have been 800 (333*2.40)

    And as I said, once is running the OS goes fine and stable, but when i reboot it randonly turns off and on an reverts to stock settings....

    See if this helps >>>

    CAS Latency Time________________ 4
    Dram RAS# to CAS# Delay_________ 4
    Dram RAS# Precharge Delay_______3
    Precharge Delay (tRAS)__________ 10

    ^^ you can try 444-12 for now to rule out ram timing issues ^^^

    Write to Precharge Delay_________ ? AUTO ALL
    Refresh to ACT Delay______________52-62
    Read to Precharge Delay__________ ?
    Static tRead Value_______________ 7-10
    Static tRead Phase Adjust________ 1-31 << always Auto/Zero

    System Voltage Control____ [Manual]
    DDR2 OverVoltage Control__ [+0.100V] << +.2-.3
    PCI-E OverVoltage Control_ [+0.1V]
    FSB OverVoltage Control___ [+0.1V]
    (G)MCH OverVoltage Control [+0.1V] << +.2-.3

    And please do test each stick you have for faults one at a time, you may have a faulty stick and need new ones >>>

    K, let us know how you get along.

    Beta BIOS is all up to you, but if you do flash DO NOT USE @BIOS!!! Here is a Qflash guide >>>
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/bios...h-guide-27576/

    Be sure you load optimized after the flash, set your ram voltage and then save/apply/reboot BACK to the BIOS as you will HAVE TO set your SATA disk settings again (If you use RAID and forget this or let windows try to load accidentally you will corrupt your array)

    I have the ga p35 ds3p and the same problem


    my mem is set to 4,4,4,15 @2.1v has passed 8 hour memtest on and off the 333fsb

    haven't made any voltage changes to the cpu or anything other than setting the ram to what ocz recommend

    couldnt really see a reason for uping volts due to my rig passes memtest and 14 hours of prime95 without error

    i can run my rig for a few days at 3ghz then one day i'll reboot and it will revert back to default clock speed and the manual setting of 4,4,4,15 for the ram changes from manual to auto and uses 5,5,5,15

    it's really annoying

    i have the latest bios f11

    as i am getting the same problem on a different bios i would say we are both doing the same thing wrong lol

    Hmm, it annoys you yet you refuse to accept advice on why it fails to keep your settings?

    They are not as stable as you think obviously

    Auto for all your settings is not going to be stable at all, especially if you are using 4GB+

    If you would like some advice on settings please post your full specs and fill this out with what you are using and I will advise >>>

    This is Just a template I use to ask people their settings, pay no attention to the numbers in it, replace with yours

    mate you didn't give advice to me it was to the OP as I don't have the same board or memory as him so I haven't made the changes you suggest to him

    I will start my own thread up with all the details you have asked for here
