Thread: Gigabyte ga-ep35-ds3l




  1. #1

    Default Gigabyte ga-ep35-ds3l

    I just ordered a GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3L along with an e5200. Still waiting on it's arrival. Im going to add that to:

    2GB DDR2 @ 667MHZ 3-3-3-10
    Radeon x1950pro 512MB
    Seagate 160GB @ 7200rpm
    SB Audigy2
    Corsair 520HX
    Super Antec Lanboy
    Vista Ultimate SP1 64bit
    Acer AL2216Wbd 22"

    I would like to OC the e5200 on the GA-EP35-DS3L to about 4.0Ghz. I got 3 120mm fans , all above 85CFM and above 2000RPM. One intake, one on my Big typhoon heatsink and one exhaust. Does anyone think I'm going going to be able to do this because of the board or any other factors?

    Also. First hand overclocking experience with this board. Anyone?

    Thanks in advance.

    You will be fine with that setup, not sure if you can get 4Ghz out of that CPU FOR SURE or not though. Some do, some do not. You may also need faster ram to do 4Ghz

    Once you get all built I can for sure help you with settings, so post back anytime

    Ya I knew ram would be the problem. Will post back as soon as I get it setup. Which depends on when I get the parts. LOL.

    Thanks

    Good luck in getting built. The ram wont be a Problem so much with getting running, but you may want to think about getting some newer ram once you get going though so you can try for a 4Ghz overclock

    450x9 or round about there is going to be your lowest FSB for 4Ghz, so you may not be able to get 900Mhz out of that ram. But then again you could possibly with very loose settings, you will just have to try and see.

    I was thinking more 333 x12 to give me about 3.99Ghz which is sufficient for me. This way , I won't need to interfere with the RAM speed as it will already be at 333mhz. I would like to leave the timings tight as they are at 3-3-3-10 with this method.

    What do you think?

    Your math adds up just make sure the board doesn't try to OC that RAM. The procs multiplier is 12.5 so you can go up to 4162.5 and be at 333 if you use a 1:1 ratio. (12.5x333=4162.5)
    The processor's stock FSB is 800 and the above OC would raise it to 1332 FSB. (333*4=1332) That's big.

    Hmm..

    I have gotten this ram running @ 800mhz on this current setup. Can't remember the timings but they were slack. Maybe I can go for that with the Giga board and try 400x10?

    Ya, I think you would be able to do either (Sorry I forgot you had a 12.5 multi) 12x333 or 400x10, or even 363x11 (Which would only be 726 on the ram, may be easier then 800)

    Timings will need to be slacker though =(

    Edit

    One more thing. Do you guys think the ga-ep35-ds3l was a bad buy?Alot of my friends were trying to get me to go with a p45 ( Like a P5Q ) but I did not see the need for it.

    Pci-e 2.0 and 1600mhz native fsb. Ok. So? Lol.

    Even if you think I should of, just say no so i won't feel like a complete idiot =)

    Well It is really all about what Kind of BIOS options you want when choosing P35 or P45, P45 has TONS more.

    As for your actual P35 choice, I would not have went with the "L" Budget board myself, with P45's out all the P35 are cheaper. I would have chosen these for P35, in order of Price-quality (Best first, cheaper last)>>> DQ6-DS4-DS3R
