    Default Help, Problems with my P35-S3G motherboard.

    Hello there,

    I have tried to overclock my cpu (Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600) which is applied on my GIGABYTE P35-S3G.

    I've tried the following;

    400MHz x 8 Multiplier, with 1,3564v on my cpu. I'm using 4GB Transcend PC2-6400 - 800 Mhz.
    I've been running memtest86, with no errors. (2.0v)
    As well is i've tried with the stock voltages.

    I've also tried to change the timing on my RAM. Tried the following ones; 4-4-4-12 and 5-5-5-15 and 5-5-5-18.

    I'm using a 2:3 FSB:DRAM

    And yet no results.

    I think that my problem might be my BIOS because it's not updated, and when i try to update it, I'm getting the message; "Not compatible with a 64 Bit version of Windows".

    I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 64x

    Anyone with any ideas that might could help?

    Thanks in advance,

    Edit: My results so far is, that my pc ain't saving the bios settings, because that it is loading "safe mode" when i try to boot.

    To update your BIOS put the file on a USB flash-drive and use the BIOS buil-in Q-Flash.
    Load optimized defaults save and reboot before flashing.
    In Q-Flash, clear the "Keep DMI Data" checkbox before you flash.

    What CPU cooler do you have?

    Thanks Chike, for helping with My BIOS Update.

    But yet there's no result. My BIOS keeps going into safe mode when i try to OC.

    Any other suggestions?

    I still don't understand what CPU cooler(heatsink) you are using, is it the stock cooler that came with the CPU?
    Can you please attach(need to go advance) a CPU-Z text report(CPU-Z -> About tab -> Save Report(.TXT))?

    I've attached my text rport from CPU-Z

    Text_report.txt

    I think that I'm using the stock heatsink, but I'm not sure.

    I still don't get it. I can't even make a minor adjustment to my CPU Frequency.

    Thanks.

    If it helps, my CPU temp is between 39-43 degrees C, when it is idle. And around 47-51 at 100% CPU Usage.

    Use CoreTemp or Real Temp ro monitor temperatures, what temps do you get under Prime95 load?
    Can you set CPU Host Frequency manually to it's defalt without having multi boots?

    On realtemp my idle temp is: 41-41-40-40 stable. (with exra voltage to my CPU)

    After running Prime95 for 10 minutes my temps are: 68-67-67-67 stable. (with exra voltage to my CPU)

    Haven't tried to manually set my CPU Frequency to default.

    I've just tried to manually insert the default value of my CPU Frequency (266MHz), and yes that is doable.

    No issues at all.

    I just tried to OC from 266 - 270 to see if that was possible.
    And there's no issues at all in that case.

    But it won't let me go to even 275
