    Unhappy Re: P35-dq6

    I have the exact same problem with the DDR2 version of P35-DQ6 rev.1 and the system in my signature. The board cycles through post and keeps losing its o'clocked settings at each reboot. I then have to load from BIOS and the same until next reboot. Moreover, PCI-E becomes limited to x1 if I choose FSB over 400 and MCH and FSB voltages of +0.2V.

    I currently have 2 other Gigabyte boards (P35 DS3 & P965 DS4) in other systems and no such problems exist for them. My overhyped P35-DQ6 is gradually begining to drive me crazy. I think by now I have exhaused every thinkable option (changed memory, BIOS's, settings etc.) to no avail

    Your help would be greatly appreciated before I give up and try to return the board to the shop...

    What is your CPU Clock Ratio?

    Thanks for the follow up!

    I am trying to run the CPU @ 8x440MHz (which it used to do just great on the P965-DS4) with voltages ranging from 1.475V to 1.506V. Actually, once I get the system to boot (every second reboot), the CPU is 100% dual prime stabe @ 8x450MHz. However, even when doing a very small overclock, the board will keep resetting itself to "Default" after every restart....

    I have tried changing the memory or using Option 2, as someone suggested for Micron D9 memory, but it didn't change anything.

    Apart from this issue, there is the issu with the board limiting PCI-E to "x1" with any kind of overclock... I'm totally baffled...

    I am not sure whether I understand the question correctly but will try to answer according to my understanding. Assuming you are asking whether the board gets into an infinite reboot loop - no, it does not. In 99% of the cases it enters Windows on the second reboot and after having loaded again the o'cked settings. This issue was present from the very first moment I put the board in, so it didn't appear before or after another event.

    Also, every reboot fails just once, the comp. doesn't cycle through several times, it fails to enter widnows, resets itself to default and enters windows. Otherwise, it enters windows normally, without any hassle on the second reboot and after loading o'cked settings again, as if there was no issue at all....

    OK, it does not reboot loop.
    And did it come with any beep sound?

    No, it makes a low click sound and resets... BTW, I am having some success with BIOS F6, which allows me to choose Option 2 for the RAM and +0.1V on the PCI-E. Now, I've seen the system restart just fine a few times, though not all the time...
