    Great, thanks for the clarification.

    What do I need to set to voltage?

    Thanks
    David

    Thanks for the info. I've made the changes but they've made no difference.

    Have you tried Auto, and Auto?

    Or Legacy, and Auto?

    If so, you may need a better fan, or you may want to try a new BIOS or previous BIOS's

    Hi, I have a p35-DS3 board with freezer 7 pro.
    it is a PWM cpu cooler with 4 pins. (much older version of freezer pro was w/o PWM, so had 3 pins probably)
    anyways, I had the exact same problem of the CPU fan kicking into full speed at startup, seems that going to the bios and re-setting the fan speed control to auto (even if it was on auto) and saving (F10) the bios, solved that for me.

    Hi,
    I've tried auto and auto, legacy and auto but still no improvement. Any ideas?

    Hi,

    How do I reflash the bios?

    The start up is still temperamental.

    Sometimes the alarm comes on intermittently during start up. Having watched the CPU fan whilst this is happening it spins when the alarm isn't sounding. I get to the log on page with the alarm still sounding and restart, then it either starts perfectly fine or kicks in with the fan on full speed.

    The other start up scenario is; it kicks in with the fan on full speed, loud and noisy and I have to restart.

    With both of these scenarios about 50% of the time the pc won't shut down unless I do it manually.

    Thanks

    Flashing, here is some info on using Qflash. You can use 3 things with Qflash.... USB Stick, Floppy, or FAT32 Partition on your disk >>>

    What you should do is manually download the correct BIOS for your board model and board revision from here. Extract the BIOS file you need, the .F# << # Being BIOS number like .F11. Be sure to choose the correct Rev. It is printed on the board in the bottom corner under the PCI Slots.

    Here is each page for all revisions of your board, be sure you choose the correct Rev before you download

    GA-P35-DS3P Rev 2.1 BIOS
    GIGABYTE - Support - Motherboard - BIOS - GA-P35-DS3P (rev. 2.1)

    GA-P35-DS3P Rev 2.0 BIOS
    GIGABYTE - Support - Motherboard - BIOS - GA-P35-DS3P (rev. 2.0)

    GA-P35-DS3P Rev 1.1 BIOS
    GIGABYTE - Support - Motherboard - BIOS - GA-P35-DS3P (rev. 1.1)

    GA-P35-DS3P Rev 1.0 BIOS
    GIGABYTE - Support - Motherboard - BIOS - GA-P35-DS3P (rev. 1.0)

    The BIOS file you download is a EXE which is made just to extract to the Floppy drive or A: drive.

    You can get the BIOS .Fxx (xx Being BIOS number and how the actual BIOS file extension will look) File out of this to flash with Qflash or DOS (DOS Flash files are also inside the Exe. by using winrar to extract the files.

    Download Winrar Trial here (Scroll down to Winrar 3.71 and download) and then install and right click the BIOS exe file and choose extract here >>>
    WinRAR archiver, a powerful tool to process RAR and ZIP files

    Then you can either run any CD you have to get DOS loaded and use the files extracted. Or you can put them on a FAT32 USB drive and use Qflash. You may also make a new 1GB FAT32 partition on your disk if you like and keep BIOS files there as well. Or you may also use a Floppy Disk and put the .Fxx file on it

    To use USB you need Legacy Storage Detect Enabled in the Integrated Peripherals page of the BIOS. You also need to leave the USB drive plugged in when you reboot to Qflash (Select "END" at bootup, or F8 Within the BIOS to enter Qflash)

    Once inside Qflash you will be presented with Disks or Drives depending on what you have available, look thru each until you find your BIOS file and then flash it

    Once you have flashed and rebooted back into the BIOS choose Load Optimized defaults and save and apply and reboot Back into the BIOS before you go into windows. You will need to set your hard drive settings again, especially do not try to load Windows if you are using a RAID setup without setting these settings again (Just have to say incase anyone is reading this for any board and is using RAID)

    Good luck, and PLEASE DO NOT USE @BIOS!!

    Post back of course if you need some more help with this
