    I don't have this issue but I've got an idea. I noticed that Gigabyte seems to have calibrated the vcore with the bios since F8 version. For example before we have 1,375V for 1,400V and now we have 1,385V for 1,400V set in bios according to Cpu-z which represents a delta about 0,10V. In "PC Health Status" I have 1,395V for 1,400V.

    Your vcore has grown up about 0,10V and it is probably your problem. Try to lower it

    Thats what i did. Now i see problem is fan control OR more..
    Everest:
    F8 vcore 1.30v - 3150MHz - core 1&2 temp 58C - fan 926RPM !!!
    F7 vcore 1.31v - 3150MHz - core 1&2 temp 50C - fan 2015RPM


    edit: too much calibration to my cooler i think..

    I agree with you on this one!

    Dear Xinot
    Could you do me a fever?
    Try to setup your cooler again, and disable smart fan function.
    check if the temp still so high?

    Yup, with same voltage/clock/full rpm fan temps are same with F7 & F8
    It looks like my cpu fan "idle" speed is little too low with F8+Smart Fan enabled.

    F7 - smart fan enabled - idle - fan speed about 2000RPM
    F8 - smart fan enabled - idle - fan speed about 900RPM

    i'm just dyin for the day gigabyte puts better effort in the p35 bois
    for a rep to tell me that that my p35c-ds3r is hardware limited is total bs
    i coulda bought a cheaper board that would let me chose better vdimm voltage options its not like i'm asking 0.01 increments would be happy with +.05
    i bought the x38-dq6 and was total letdown

    i think this will be me last gigabyte board

    If you're talking about the voltage increments above 1.6V then the newer X38 BIOSes have 0.025 increments. What X38-DQ6 BIOS are you using?

    I just thought somebody should put a good word in for Gigabyte...

    Aside from the fact that weirdly, at F7, the power light stopped working (it works again now at F8), I have had no trouble at all with my P35C-DS3R. It's perfectly stable at the same, not over the top overclock as my 965P-DS3 (450x7) with my E6320, plus, I can drop in a Yorkfield when they get cheap in January :)

    The only comment I think I'll make is regarding it's setting voltage as a differential (e.g. +0.100v) rather than just giving the target voltage like the 965 boards did (e.g. 1.900v) - is this common to all Gigabyte P35 boards?

    Edit: I just stuck another 2GB of match RAM (GeIL PC6400C4 'Ultra') in, and it's passing many runs of MemTest86+ and perfectly stable at 450MHz 1:1 4-4-4-12 still. Looks like P35 has a really good memory controller. My old abit nF650i board really didn't like 4 DIMMs above stock memory clocks at low latency at all. Never tried 4 DIMMs in my 965P-DQ6, although I presume that since only slots 2 & 4 worked with this RAM on my 965P-DS3 r3.3 (yes, I've really gone through 3 different Gigabyte boards within the last 6 months or so!), that 4 DIMMs definitely wouldn't have worked on that one ;)

    I did setup my cpu cooler again, and temps drop from 58C to 55C but so did my cooler RPM... With 55C its only 660RPM. Nice "smart fan" control. Is this "smart" target temps like 60C or what? Do i have to use older bios or disable the smart fan function to get my idle temps ok? Or do you Janus have beta bios etc. fix for me? Am i only one to have this problem?

    the x38 was a peice of garbage 300$ for a board that only gave me bsod
    supposed to be an upgrade performance was 2% higher but bsod was 99%
