Thread: GA-P35C-DS3R problems

    Default Re: GA-P35C-DS3R problems

    I just made a stability test with the latest EVEREST Ultimate Edition an here is the result!



    Although i don't like the voltage of dimms (2.27) , i tried ALL the combinations from BIOS (0.1 , 0,2 ,...) but with NO result ... i get the same! I'm not sure if this value is right , but as i have read in previous posts , it's NOT! I don't know what to do!
    Today i had 3 random reboots (with blue screen) when running "heavily" apps and I've lowered the system memory multiplier (spd) , so my memory is again at 800 speed (although it's for 1066) - and the system IS OK with some time of "heavy" use (games, 3d studio max , stability tests...)
    I think a have to accept this settings for the memory ...
    Any suggestions about the test above ... !?
    My system ...
    CPU Type DualCore Intel Core 2 Duo E6850, 3000 MHz (9 x 333)
    Motherboard Name Gigabyte GA-P35C-DS3R (3 PCI, 3 PCI-E x1, 1 PCI-E x16, 4 DDR2 DIMM, 2 DDR3 DIMM, Audio, Gigabit LAN)
    System Memory 2048 MB (DDR2-800 DDR2 SDRAM)
    DIMM1: Kingston 9905316-076.A00LF 1 GB DDR2-800 DDR2 SDRAM (5-5-5-16 @ 400 MHz) (4-4-4-11 @ 266 MHz) (3-3-3-8 @ 200 MHz)
    DIMM3: Kingston 9905316-076.A00LF 1 GB DDR2-800 DDR2 SDRAM (5-5-5-16 @ 400 MHz) (4-4-4-11 @ 266 MHz) (3-3-3-8 @ 200 MHz)
    (even everest sees the memory at 800 , although its at 1066 ...what the f...?)
    Video Adapter ATI Radeon HD 3870 (512 MB)
    Disk Drive WDC WD5000AAKS-00YGA0 (465 GB, IDE)
    DMI BIOS Version F8

    Edit : In BIOS , i have CIA2 in turbo mode and Performance Enhance in turbo also!
    I did the same stability test again for 1 hour with NO problems! (have same temps)

    Got an RMA for my board; Scan are taking that back and the memory (probably to test) but have agreed I can change for another board.... finally I should have a stable machine! I'm going for a different brand, Gigabyte you have scared my brain with your products..

    I have the same MB. At first I just thought it was my inexperience with M.I.T. in the bios, but I figured all that out with reading several OC'ers forums and this site... nice guide... at any rate I have given up on this MB and will seek RMA or refund if thats possible. A refund would be best... what would I do w/ another MB except frame it and hang it on the wall?

    I'm using the f8 bios revision... heres what I've found... setting OC voltages don't stick. ex. if I set vCore to 1.3750v bios PC health reports 1.328v and CPUz reports 1.328 - 1.344. The only way I would keep this MB in service is if these voltage issue could be fixed with a bios revision and that still may not do much since MB northbrigde seems to have issues with heat and I have 10 fans plus the OCZ RAM Cooler.

    Has anyone had any luck getting a refund instead of an RMA replacement?

    depends where you bought it\
    try getting them to give you another brand
    even if you get another board the voltage differences will still be there
    gigabyte bios coders need to go back to school

    Thumbs down Re: GA-P35C-DS3R problems

    my setup was
    C2D e6850
    Geil 533mhz DDR2
    Evga 8800 gts 320
    with the ga-p35c-ds3r, when i first received it. First boot it entered the continuous reboots and thought i had ****ed something up took it all apart and steered at it for abit and put it back together and it worked?!? Well worked for 3 months and then i got the loop again but this time it wont go away. So have rma'd it, this board is nice with its ddr2/3 support also for the 45nm cpus, but this is a serious problem which faults these boards hugely, fix this gigabyte or do a recall or something, this is a beyond a joke. Just look at the amount of threads that have be created around the internet about this problem.

    Just look into the mirror and say the following....


    There is no problem.
    There is no problem.

    Did your problem go away? I guess it only works for Gigabyte

    I don't care about the differences, I can work with that... it's this MB's problem of not holding the overvoltages. Ex: Top vCore I could get was 1.364 and I had moved it up 3 times to almost 1.4, but PC Health Status never budged over 1.364

    Most all intel boards do this, its called vdroop. Some are worse than others though.
