    Looks good! You could try to lower (G)MCH though, I think it will work with less. If your temps are OK then the VCore is fine for 24/7 use, but lower is always better of course^^

    Thanx!
    Ok...I'll give it a try.
    My temp on CPU is around 40-45 in Idle and around 60-65 in load. That's not so bad isn't It?
    BTW I could not lower VCore at all when I did that the PC got unstable. :(

    Temps are OK but you may need to get a better cooler in summer.
    Don't worry about the VCore, it's not too high and if decreasing it causes instability then you've found just the right level!

    not the same mbrd I know but in general it seems non extreme quads get a little flaky 2-5 degree jumps on air,once you get above 3.6 ghz.
    I run fine on 3.5ghz.Timings are on the linked screenie(3.43 ghz for safety/24/7 running).
    With your memory you should be able to run 3.6 cpu stable assuming your cpu cooler is good.
    Once again take advice carefully unless the poster has a system v close to yours or is a moderator.

    I don't know what your problem is kick but could you please stop trying to discredit me in every other thread?

    I know P35 pretty well as I've had 3 Gigabyte P35 boards as well as one X38 DQ6, one P45 DS3L and one Asus P5Q-E. I hope that qualifies me to answer in this thread in your opinion /facepalm

    Cooler is good, I bought one as well to try it out since it's quite cheap. I just think that the installation method is really bad, whoever decided to use those tiny screws should be punished. Severely! ;)
