    Default P35-S3G problems with OC and BIOS flashing

    sup all,

    wanted to try OCing my comp here and ran into a couple of problems

    this is my comp:
    gigabyte p35-s3g @ f4
    4gb g.skill PC6400 5-5-5-15
    leadteak 9600GT
    C2D E8200

    1. when trying to increase the fsb just by a tiny bit, the computer restarts twice and then loads default settings to boot

    some say it's incompatibility between the mobo and 9600gt and other say it's because of some auto settings on the bios

    is there any definite answer to the issue with 9600gt?

    2. second problem has been solved, apparently just had to change USB ports and it worked... running on f4 bios now
    wondering what has been fixed on f5b?

    help will be greatly appreciated!

    thanks!

    That card should be fine in your board, PCIE 2.0 is backwards compatible

    Not sure what is changed in F5b, but I see it is the latest available. If you flash please use Qflash here is a guide just in case >>

    I can post F5a or F5b for you if you would like to try both, but I would go with F5b first myself

    If you do need help with your settings I can help, let me know and fill this out with what you are using that is giving you issues >>>

    thanks for your reply! here is the info you requested

    as you can see, i increased cpu voltage to 1.3v
    locked the pci express to 100
    did performance enhance to standard
    and just upped the fsb from 333 to 350

    the problem i get is 2 restarts and all settings go back to default

    CPU = Intel C2D E8200
    Motherboard = GA-P35-S3G

    2 restarts and defaults loaded means incorrect settings used, as you suspect already I am sure

    Try this for your 350 overclock listed above >>>

    Please post the exact settings for me you set and I will advise back, sounds like you still have set something to low or not used enough voltage to something.


    You did start by loading optimized defaults only right? If not, you must, then save/apply/reboot back to the BIOS to make your changes. Please see here for tips on loading optimized >>

    yes, i did optimized defaults
    then save and exit
    then back into bios and applied oc settings
    then save and exit

    double restart and back to defaults

    Those are the ranges I gave you, what exact settings ONLY did you enter, for each one, that fail?
