    Default Gigabyte ep45-DS3R

    I just put this thing together and would like to know how to clock and tweak it. RAM is 800 DDR2, Processor is Quad core. OS installed pretty tough and I loaded all defaults. Any help?

    no problem however what is your vid of your processor? If you google Coretemp and download it it will tell you that. That is the min voltage that your computer takes to boot.

    You can try this a LSD gave me these settings first time I started and they worked GREAT! I now have a q6600 at 3.6GHz stable but looking to push to 3.8Ghz next. But try below and let me know. Make sure you thank Lsdmeasap!

    Here is some suggested settings for 3.2 for now. I will help you with 3.4 if you think you can reach it with your cooler, and after you play with your PC for a while!

    The timings below, and the one 12/15 ranger above, are ranges. Set to highest and once you get your CPU stable you can start to bring them down. ONE AT A TIME with testing between each move or you will never get stable because you move too many and you wont know which is causing the errors

    Motherboard Voltage Control
    Voltage Type.………... Manual
    CPU
    CPU Vcore….……….........................: 1.30-1.35V See Below >>>

    This is up to you and your Board/chip/cooler. A good place to start would be 1.30-1.4 or so. If it wont boot add some more. As long as your temps are good you should be good up to 1.5+. Again with you not knowing much you of course will have some issues here, I would suggest you leave the ram at the highest settings I suggested until you get your CPU Stable

    Just so you know now and not wonder or get scared. A bouble reboot is normal when changing BIOS settings. So if you see a double boot it is fine, as is single of course. Which will only happen with minor changes. A double is the norm.

    A triple reboot means the settings failed and the BIOS MIT section will be reset to default, you will need to try again. This is usually to tight of ram timings, or not enough CPU Voltage

    You need to post your full specs, the above may or may not work for you. Please post Ram type, amount and CPU name as well so we can advise you of a voltage range. The above may be wrong if you have a older CPU, or if you are using different ram then he was.

    Basically, you will need system specific settings probably. But that may be a good starting range for you if you have a New Quad (45Nm) and 2x1GB of ram at 1066 speeds. If not you will need different settings for sure, which I do see you listed ram speed of 800. So the above will not boot for you, please post what type of ram, how much and your CPU name and I will post you some settings to start with.

    I will be back tomorrow for sure if You do not post back tonight

    Hi
    I finally got your reply (Wife has me going all over) Thank you for your help I'm just learning this computer building stuff. I got your reply this A.M. and I looked at my memory and it is the corsair 800 DDR2 1024 mhz 2x1 ghz dual channel (4 ghz Total), my cpu is an intel quad core Q6600 2.40 ghz. my power supply is a thermaltake 650 watt. My video card is a nvidia 8600 gts 256 mb my cooling is the 2 standard case fans. Computer is always coming out of a shutdown after several hours having to check the bios errors I have set eveything to the optimized defaults.Help? . Also on hibernate it shuts off and restarts right away.
    Yup she posessed.

    Ok, I would start here with stock settings first. Then if you want to overclock we can work on that later on.

    S3 sleep will not work, you will need to set that to S1 until they release a BIOS fix. Q6600 is 2.40GHz by default not 2.14

    You say 2x1GB ram? Then 4 total, which is it? Can you also please post the model # so I can know the CAS timing
