    Advanced Timing Control
    tRRD...........................................AUT O
    tWTR..........................................AUTO
    tWR............................................AUT O
    tRFC...........................................AUT O
    tRTP...........................................AUT O
    Command Rate (CMD) ...................:AUTO

    Driving Strength Profiles
    Driving Strength ............................AUTO

    I thought I was supposed to set to highest values and lower one at a time testing as I go? Looks like I have a lot of reading to do right --> http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte...ing-guide.html I am sure this guide will work for me if I keep in close contact with you guys.

    Also what about these settings for the comming hot weather?
    CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E)____ [Disabled]
    CPU EIST Function__________ [Disabled]
    CPU Warning Temperature___ [80oC / 176oF]
    You know what I mean right? Making sure if I leave my rig alone it will not overheat LOL
    Would these settings just throttle back while the pc is not under load?

    After reading some things on the net, I am unsure how high I can go with a EP45-DS3R board.
    Thanks Madmax

    You will be just fine with advanced timings on auto.

    I have C1E and EIST enabled(as well as all other states), not much difference in heat when overclocked though.
    Only reason for your computer to over heat is fan(s) failure or sudden raise of room temperature.
    Core Temp have lots of overheat protection options, better then an alarm that no one would hear.

    I didn't read your post through Max but in general as per your last post I would....

    Also what about these settings for the comming hot weather?
    CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E)____ [Disabled]<<< your choice
    CPU EIST Function__________ [Disabled] <<< Enable
    CPU Warning Temperature___ [80oC / 176oF] <<< your choice

    Thanks Guys I just got my 8800GTS OC videocard installed and tested on 3DMark06. Here is a link to the latest test -->>NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB/640MB video card benchmark result - Intel Core 2 Quad Processor Q8200,Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. EP45-DS3R score: 10937 3DMarks

    Here is a link to my test with a 6600GT installed,what a difference! -->NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GT video card benchmark result - Intel Core 2 Quad Processor Q8200,Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. EP45-DS3R score: 1805 3DMarks

    This is with the default baseline settings for baseline results using the 8800GTS video card. I used the forceware tweakguide to uninstall and reinstall this videocard.
    TweakGuides.com - Nvidia Forceware Tweak Guide
    Testing continues....
    Just ran Cinebench R11.5 with results of Open GL 27.46 FPS and CPU is 2.70 points.

    CINBENCH CPU 2.7 is a bit low for 4 cores. I get 2.27 with only 2 cores. I would expect it to be higher at least by our GFlops ratio (36/25=1.44) that's about 3.27

    Hi Chike you know I have noticed a drop in score in the 6600GT tests with the same system on 3Dmark06.
    I had a 500GB seagate drive installed before (with more cache probably) and maybe no AV or different than NOD32(maybe MSE).

    Then after I installed this latest Western Digital drive and NOD32 there is a definite performance drop. I dont know whether its the drive or NOD32.:(
    I will list the WD cache ASAP. 16 MB cache on this drive and I think the seagate has 32 maybe (looking for that info now)

    The CPU test shuld not be effected by drive or GPU.
    Always run benchmarks when the computer is at complete idle

    Yes, that is right I was merely stating that the drive was changed and there is a new AV installed, which may be hindering performance a bit. You recall the problem with Norton internet security slowing down systems in the past.

    It may be that I am wrong, yes I see that, so how will a CPU suddenly get bad performance??? Maybe the setting that were recently changed as a starting clue maybe? The CPU Enhanced halt and CPU EIST function remember?

    I reset the above settings to disable for some more tests, but there maybe still something wrong.

    Max
    Reran 3Dmark06 with above setting disabled and noted some increase in performance. Here is the link to latest result -->NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB/640MB video card benchmark result - Intel Core 2 Quad Processor Q8200,Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. EP45-DS3R score: 11017 3DMarks Will look at some other suggestions I got from ESET support forum and also do a bit of googling as well.

    Note I also purchased an upgrade to Diskeeper which may also be running with programs. Its called Intelliwrite technology, here is a review that states it runs in the background all the time. -->> Diskeeper 2011 Professional Review & Rating | PCMag.com

    Rerunning Cinebench again LOL

    I hope you know that I am running at default settings to get a baseline record again. Later I will use the setting that you gave me for the 2.8 OC.

    I reran Cinebench and got CPU 2.7 pts again Hmmmm
