    artdrivers thanks for such a quick reply.I was trying to install windows xp
    (without sp2) and I understand that sp2 is required for install on newer mb,which I did not know,but found out in another thread.I took a chance and installed a hard drive with xp sp2 already installed on it and everything worked out fine. would of liked clean install but this is better than nothing.If you have any ideas how I could use my xp install disk and install sp2 latter it would be great.again thanks so much for your help.

    You will want a clean install. You need to partition the WD hard drive. Be sure you set the ide devices to auto in bios. You can hook up the WD hard drive to the motherbaord and power supply aloong with that old windows hard drive and partition it with WD Data Lifeguard tools 11.2 Then remove the old hard drive and install the new hard drive in it's place.

    Before running Windows setup you may want to do so with 2 GB of memory. You do not need sp2 When windows setup is done you can go to windows update and install all the updates. Windows update will install sp3 and all the new security updates as well as Internet Explorer 7 or 8 Install the remaining memory after updates is complete.

    For NON AHCI or RAID you should have your hard drive connected to port 0 on the yellow controller, your SATA DVD Drive (if you have one) in port 1 and you should have set in integrated peripherals page of the BIOS this >>>>

    SATA RAID/AHCI Mode (Intel ICH10R Southbridge) >>>>>>>>> Disabled

    SATA Port0-3 Native Mode >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Enabled << Must be enabled for SATA CD/DVD Functions

    This is for Anything you have on the purple ports extra or any IDE Drives
    Onboard SATA/IDE Device (GIGABYTE SATA2 Chip) >>>>>>>>>> Enabled

    Onboard SATA/IDE Ctrl Mode (GIGABYTE SATA2 Chip) >>>>>>> IDE

    Default Mobo voltage settings for PC8500 Corsair memory

    Hi,

    I have a GA-EP35-DS3L Mobo with 2 2GB sticks of Corsair XMS2 PC8500 memory installed. The memory was running as PC6400, 800 Mhz because I had not changed the BIOS settings.

    I have set the timing per Corsair in the BIOS for my memory to run at 1066 speed. I can't seem to change the memory voltage to 2.1 as Corsair suggests.

    In my BIOS M.I.T screen I changed the DDR2 Overvoltage to .3 because SiSoft showed the memory voltage at 1.8
    I thought setting this DDR2 overvoltage to .3 would raise the voltage to 2.1, but Sisoft still shows the memory voltage as 1.8. Sisoft lists this value as Memory DC Line 1.80V

    Can you tell me if there is another voltage setting that I should change? Is there a different utility that I can use to verify the voltage settings on the memory, CPU, etc.?

    Thanks for your help.

    techaddict I use the bios to check memory voltages. in PC Health Status
    http://china.giga-byte.com/FileList/...5-(d)s3l_e.pdf
    ******** System Voltage Optimized ********
    System Voltage Control
    Determines whether to manually set the system voltages. Auto lets BIOS automatically set the
    system voltages as required. Manual allows all voltage control items below to be configurable.
    (Default: Manual)
    DDR2 OverVoltage Control
    Allows you to set memory voltage.
    Normal Supplies the memory voltage as required. (Default)
    +0.1V ~ +0.7V Increases memory voltage by 0.1V to 0.7V at 0.1V increment.
    Note: Increasing memory voltage may result in damage to the memory.
    Save settings when you exit bios.

    any chance of speeding up the boot up time on jmicron raid for the ex58 extreme? i was able to borrow my old msi eclipse and did try to setup the HW raid on both eclipse and extreme and i clocked that the eclipse is around 3-5 secs faster than the extreme :( Also I attached the silent pipe and my IOH cooling is pretty good but i am not happy with the build in sound of the giga board so i am planning to buy xfi platinum pcie. I can put that in the last x16 slot ( configure as x8 ) right ? or is there another driver aside from realtek ( of there are any 3rd party driver that works with vista 64 please ) that can improve the sound quality of this board ( well to save some cost on my part ).

    Thanks artdrivers,
    Sisoft must be giving the standard voltage in it's report, cuz I checked in PC Health as you suggested and voltage is around 2.1, as it s/b after I increased the voltage by .3
