    Ok, I Q-flashed the bios properly(load optimized -> Q-flash -> Load optimized) to F4 & tried the same overclock settings that I use in F3a but changed the Static tRead Value to 7/8. The bios did not hold my overclock values.

    The Ram cover only says 1.8V. Its a Transcend JetRam DDR2-800 ram. The model name is JM800QLU-2G. Here's the link for the datasheet of this model:

    Try static tread 10 for now and refresh to act delay 62. And when you choose your memory multiplier please choose either the one with the 400 or 1600 Strap letter/symbol on it, or one with no symbol on it and see if that helps. Also test out the one with the 333/1333 strap or symbol on it, but the 400 one or none should be more stable

    You never said do you have 2GB or 2x2GB of this ram? And can you please post me a Image of CPU-z with the SPD tab selected? Thanks

    And just so you know the same settings will not always work in different BIOS versions you may need more or less of any setting between them

    Have you tested more vcore, if not try it as well

    Srry again. I m using only single stick. I tried those values 10 & 62 (rest of the settings in M.I.T same as mentioned in my last post) with SPD multiplier 2.4 but as expected that did not work either. I also cleared the CMOS by shutting down the PC ,then using that jumper method for alteast 25 minutes & finally a Load Optimized Defaults but to no avail. Even the unnecessary features in Power Management & Legacy USB Storage are disabled.

    What memory multiplier are you using, I mean is it one with a letter or symbol on it?

    So are you using the newest BIOS now and not a beta? Is EIST Showing now still?

    Static tRead of 3 is still being used, this is a HUGE issue

    Try this and see if it helps you any and please move the ram stick to slot one for now >>>

    1. I m using 2.4 multiplier & it has no +,- or any other symbols. Those symbols are
    only present on 4.0 multiplier.

    2. EIST disappears if I overclock when using the F3a version.....don't know if it will
    disappear after overclocking on F4.

    3. Static tRead is 3 when left on Auto & CPU is not overclocked. When I overclock,
    then I always change it to values between 7-11 as u told.


    I will move it to slot 1 & let u know.

    K, static Tread should be on 7+ anytime overclocking or not. I would advise you to try the newer NON beta BIOS again and be sure you load optimized and save and apply before you go any further.

    EIST bug should not appear then

    OK I moved the RAM in slot 1 & then applied the settings that u gave (CPU core voltage I used was 1.4V) & as expected, no overclock. One more thing that I want to add is that when I change the static tRead value to 7+, as u said, even during the normal functioning, & then apply the change, the computer does not boot. This happens even if I change any other RAM options. When the computer boots, the changed RAM option is set back to Auto. I performed all the procedure which u mentioned in ur previous post, with the bios updated to F4.

    I found something interesting regarding EIST function. U should check this link too:

    Have you ever installed a dual-channel kit in that board? Did it overclock?

    I've used BIOS's F2-F4-F5a to overclock, and have not known EIST to ever disappear.
    I generally have EIST disabled, but it has worked as expected whenever enabled.

    On the Integrated Peripherals page, I've always Disabled ... SATA AHCI Mode, USB Keyboard Support, USB Storage Detect, Onboard LAN Boot ROM, Onboard Serial Port 1, and Onboard Parallel Port.

    My Power Management Setup has always been as follows:
    ACPI Suspend Type ... S1(POS)
    Soft-Off by PWR-BTTN ... Delay 4 Sec.
    AC Back Function ... Soft-Off
    All others ... Disabled

    No, I have never used a dual channel memory kit & also I don't have it nor could I borrow it from anyone to check. I have the exact same settings done under both Power Management & Integrated Peripherals as u ave mentioned. Infact, u are the first I have ever seen who has overclocked P35-S3G board with almost every revision. U definitely have a magical PC. I believe I should just give it up & use F3a only. That restart problem I that face after overclocking could be a voltage problem. I will see & let u know. About the EIST thing, after what I have searched on google, it appears that many overclockers are facing this. So, its either normal or just a bug that Gigabyte needs to fix.

    Nothing magical about it. Lots of time and effort, though.

    The luckiest part was finding this forum and Lsdmeasap's OC stickies. The most surprising part is the high performance of my cheap G.Skill memory, which allows me to experiment with many of the memory ratios of the 8x and 9x CPU multipliers.

    The disappointing part is that the 7x multiplier stopped just before 350 fsb, and the 6x multiplier hasn't achieved much beyond 390 fsb. I was hoping that the F5a BIOS would fix some of that. But this E2160 isn't going to reach 3200mHz anyway, so it's been a good combo so far. I just wish I could run it at 3024mHz (7x432), because my memory has proven to run stable at 1080-555-15. That'd be sweet for this inexpensive setup.

    Persistence may not always lead directly to success, but it always pays in the form of knowledge & experience.
    Good luck.
