Thread: P35 boards with S3 (sleep) issues. How many?




  1. #1

    Default P35 boards with S3 (sleep) issues. How many?

    Hello,
    I got my board (see sig) three months ago and I am very satisfied with the OC results - completely stable.
    The only thing is annoying me is the fact of don't have the sleep mode working if you have it overclocked.
    Tried everything, enabling/desabling BIOS USB modes, HPET modes, CPU Function (C1E, TM2, EIST) with no success.
    I already shared my frustration with Lsdmeasap but we would know how much P35's fellows are suffering from same "disease".

    Some uncommon factors that I detected:
    1- Voltage measured in sleep mode with external voltmeter over the RAM is about 1.92v, very high for a DDR3. Under normal operation the voltage is exactly that displayed in BIOS, 1.6V.
    2- If the sleep duration is under 20 seconds, the computer can return from S3 normally, no matter what.
    3- More than 20 seconds of sleep the mobo enters in the well know endless boot loop. The only way to recover it is disconnecting the power cord. So, it do return to life but with the CPU Host Control in AUTO, not more overclocked.
    4- If overclocked but the FSB is under 300MHz, approximately, the sleep mode will work. With one MHz above of such figure you will get a failure.

    I hope that Gigabyte could help P35 owners like they did for the new P45 mobos.

    Thanks,

    Sergio

    Wow, I thought these issues were resolved for the P35 *before* they got to the P43/P45 problem. Very few P35 users seemed to be chiming in on the P45/S3 thread (if any). It will be interesting to see if others are seeing your problem. The P45 BIOS fix seems to have done the trick.

    The problem is, all P35 are being discontinued and replaced by P45 ones, my mobo EP35C-DS3R is now out-of-stock in Newegg.
    In many IT forums we see lots of P35 mobos owners giving up and buying from other competitors and chipsets. I am starting to asking myself why I didn't do the same...

    Email Sent about this, I'll keep you posted. All boards have their own quirks, if it isn't one thing, it is surely another

    Count me amoung the P35 users still with sleep problems. Sleep and/or Hybrid sleep will not work. When resuming, my computer starts (fans & hard drives spin up) but my monitor stays black. The computer will then turn itself on and off constantly until I pull the power plug - then I can do a normal boot.

    I have tried BIOS f7, f10, f11, f12, f13, and f14 beta, plus every settings change and tweak I've read on this forum & on the net - all with no luck. FWIW sleep mode on my old Asus board worked flawlessly.

    Hi jgarland,

    Just to clarify and uniformize the issue, this happens only under OC. With stock voltages and frequencies, the S3 sleep mode works fine, right?

    negative. I have never overclocked my system. Your initial post did refer to problems with overclocked boards. My response should have reflected that. My apologies.

    Then it is Most likely you have other ram timings or voltage setting issues causing instability or incompatible or dying ram

    The S3 problem occurs only in overclocked stable systems which is why he asked the way he did.

    If you would like some help with your settings please make a thread And I will be glad to have a look and advise you

    Sorry Svcglobal, no word yet!

    I may have asked to soon since my last inquiries and they don't want me to get used to coming to them too often with issues.

    I even asked about the P45 S3 fix not being posted for my new board they sent me at the same time, no reply. P45-DS4 and DS4P have not got the fix posted yet, and I was the one asking...... What's up with that I say!!!
