    Default Gigabyte EP35-DS3 motherboard and Intel Q9550 help.

    Hi there!
    New here... :)
    I'm just wondering if there's going to be a new stable bios to my motherboard gigabyte ep35 ds3?
    It's been a beta bios for a long time now.
    I'm having some stability problems now with my board when i overclock my Q9550 cpu and corsair memory.

    My setup is...

    Intel core 2 quad 9550
    4GB Kingston HyperX PC9200 (4x1GB)

    Geforce GTX260 core 216 gfxcard
    2x250GB Samsung s-ata2 in raid 0
    1x samsung F1 1TB 32MB cache hdd.
    Creative SB X-Fi extreme gamer.
    Corsair 650 PSU.
    Windows Vista Home premium 64-bit

    Its up and running now at 3.58ghz CPU (422x8.5)
    but i have to set down my memory to around 1055mhz (SPD 2.50) to make it run ok.
    Is there any way to set the memory settings free on this board?
    Any other tweaks on this motherboard that is good to know about?

    Memorysettings/timings in order top to bottom.

    DDR2 +0.3V
    PCI-E +0,1V
    FSB +0,3V
    MCH +0,2V
    CPU 1,38125V (gives me 1.348V in Vcore)
    (And DDR18V shows 2.096V)

    Thanx for any help i get.

    Ok...this is strange!
    What do a guy from Sweden need to do to get some help around here!? :S

    What should I tune to get my PC to run better and more stable?
    And why does it take around 55sec to start windows with my setup? :S
    Some help pretty please! :(

    Sorry man, Ya it appears that you posted right after I left yesterday

    That 55 reads would have counted you to, and the 1000's of unregistered users who read things here.

    Sorry you have been waiting so long, did you look around by searching for your CPU or board at all? Plenty of posts with that board I am sure.

    Anyhow.....

    Na, no way to unlink your Ram from your CPU/FSB if that is what you meant

    Here would be optimal settings for you at 3.6 with ram at 1020Mhz 1130Mhz. If you want it more exact you are going to have to raise your FSB or Lower your CPU multi and use higher FSB. You should be using the B or D ram multipliers. Here is a image that shows B and D as your board may use Symbols for the straps or have none at all by some. As you can see only a few match on each strap, and the ones you should be using do not match any of the other lesser ones you are using now (The A/266/1066) strap


    You need more MCH voltage for sure for 8GB, I would suggest at least .25-.35 or .3 if you do not have .05 choices. That may be why you were finding only the A strap stable for you

    Good luck man, and sorry again that it seemed no one was going to reply!

    We do have a few members here who help with things they feel comfortable with, but I personally am only around at night for about 6-8 hours and it usually takes me that long to reply to everyone with new posts. I am signed in always though, so if you see that it does not mean I am here

    Good luck, and for sure post back if you have issues with anything and I will advise you of things to try

    Ok..i'm now running on your tips that you gave me.
    FSB at 425 and memory at 2.40 (i don't have 2.66D)

    And I don't have some other settings that you listed.

    Like...

    CPU/PCIEX Clock Driving Control [800mV]
    CPU Clock Skew Control [normal] 50-150 can help with stability
    GMCH Clock Skew Control [Normal] << 50-300 can help with stability

    and...
    C2/C2E State Support....................: [Disabled]
    x C4/C4E State Support..................: [Disabled]
    Atleast I could not find them. :/

    Whats the max volt on CPU etc for my board and CPU? And how high can I go with my CPU? (FSB at??)

    Are these temps ok?
    I'm using Realtemp and It shows me in Idle core 0 +51C, core 1 +41C, core 2 +40C, and core3 +43C.

    Thanx again for your help! :)
