    Default P31- DS3L reboot issue

    I have just built my brand new system comprising of P31-ds3l, E2180 and crucial ballistix. It built the system out the case and used my HD3850 but did not connect any drives at this point.
    As soon as it POSTed(v slowly, i may add) it allowed me to get into the bios and after a few seconds rebooted (CPU temp was at 29c) so i reseated the ram (ram is in correct slots) and then retested. Same problem.
    At this point i set the BIOS to default failsafe values and it still rebooted randomly while in bios-
    I then retested with different memory (OCZ PLAT) and GFX card and power supply.
    I then RMAd the board thinking it was bad. The new board is exactly the same and im completly dumbstruck. This system does not have any drives connected to it. I then reseated the CPU and changed to a spare heatsink arctic 7 pro and it still rebooted. i tried getting into the bios to change the memory timings and they were at 5,5,5,15 yet it still randomly rebooted when in the BIOS. I even tried adding 0.1 volts to the ram....
    Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    Two things, first I see many issues with GA boards and OCZ. but I do see some users running it. So that is up to you if you decide to try to keep either of those brands and keep trying to get it going.

    You do likely need more then +.1 DDR2 voltage added, not sure about the OCZ but I know Crucial's like are 2.1-2.2 Which means you should use 2.1 or less. I would start by adding +0.3 = 2.1V For DDR2 Overvoltage control

    If you are trying to use 4GB you will need to also add +0.1-0.125/0.150 to MCH voltage control, and also make Refresh to act delay 52-62

    mushkin and g.skill seem to be alot rarer in rip off britain so you tend to pay a premium( and money is very tight at the moment). im gonna start by overvolting the OC plat 2gb kit by +0.3. its standard volts are 2.2 i believe. i was sure that it wasnt a cpu issue, as generally when i have had CPU problems the board has not booted and the temps seem pretty good.
    i will start with this. Any other ram suggestions? how about geil??

    Ahh well yeah I never thought of where you lived.

    Yes, Geil is good. But you may have good luck with what you have with the proper settings and voltages

    i upped the voltage by +0.3 and the memeory seemed stable when i upped it to +0.4 the ddr2 ram voltage said FAIL and this reoccured after each reboot. any ideas?

    Yes, 2.2 is HOT add a fan if you want to use more then 2.1

    Are you getting the Geil's? If not I will post you some settings later when I get back on. If you are getting them I will wait

    im going to try the same memory as the board now appears to be stable. So any settings you could suggest would be appreciated. I have a spare fan that i can use

    I dont know how well the P32 chipset overclocks so you will have to find that one out!!!

    As for your settings I would say first to overclock you have to find and disable TM2, C1E, EIST, and C.I.A.2

    Then start upping your fsb until it wont boot then add more vcore. Also please look thru the pinned guide it will help you alot
