    Default Having problems with my old GA-P35-S3G

    I have had these problems, ever since I got my motherboard in 2008. I have recently gotten back into trying to tweak overclock it. I could not remember why I never got it to work, well now I remember.

    I have a Core 2 Duo E7200, running at stock speeds ever since I have had it. I have decided just for fun, I would try to OC it and get it a little more life and make a second useful computer when I build me a new one. However, when I go to do any sort of overclocking the settings reset themselves and never go into effect after I enter them into the BIOS, they just go back to normal. I have looked for solutions for this and the F3A BIOS is supposed to fix this, however I am on F4. I have downloaded the F6C BIOS and copied it over to my USB drive (FAT32 Formatted), and it is not recognized in Q-Flash when I try to update to it.

    Anyone know what may be my issue here?

    Thanks

    What OC are you trying to achieve?
    Try a FAT16 formatted USB stick. and also the older the better...

    We need detailed information about ALL OF THE HARDWARE in your system.

    We can best help you after you create a detailed hardware list in the System Specs
    portion of your forum profile at the bottom of the profile page or in your forum signature.
    Be sure to include brand names and model numbers.
    When you are done editing or creating your hardware list, save the settings.

    I have a C2D E7200.
    4GB RAM (I believe it is 667 Mhz), not sure of the manufacturer, it was bought in 2008 and I don't have the packaging and it is not labeled other than with Nvidia.
    512MB 8800 GTX.
    500 Watt PSU
    Gigabyte GA-P35-S3G with F4 BIOS. The only BIOS settings that I have changed was the boot order to have CD first.

    I am just trying to get the best OC that I can.
    I can't even get the RAM Ratio to stay at 1:1 and use the FSB at 333 Mhz up from the default 266.

    You don't understand, it is a PITA when you don't put your hardware list in the PC Specs drop down menu or in your forum signature.
    Sometimes it takes several pages of posts to solve a problem and many of us are helping in several threads at the same time.
    My policy is not to help out in threads where the OP makes it difficult to instantly review their hardware list.
    BTW there are very few forum members who help out with older hardware as they have moved on to much newer systems.

    Download and run Cpu-z, click on the Tools option at the bottom of its window, select Save Report as .TXT, and then upload the saved report file in your next post.
    You can find the cpu-z download link in the http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte...ity-tools.html thread.
    The cpu-z report should provide us with the name and model number for your ram.
    This will provide some of the information we need, but you still need to create a detailed hardware list so that we can better help you solve your problem.

    I won't be at that PC for 10 more hours or so. I will get that in there when I get back to it.

    In the mean time, I have put my specs in that last post, and they are accurate, can you not just give me something to try for when I get back to it? I'll have my signature fixed then!

    Here are the specs again:
    4GB RAM (I believe it is 667 Mhz), not sure of the manufacturer, it was bought in 2008 and I don't have the packaging and it is not labeled other than with Nvidia. 6-6-6-18-2T
    512MB 8800 GTX.
    500 Watt PSU

    Check out E8400 Safe Voltage Help where the OP overclocked his system to 3.9GHz with an E8400 cpu.

    He created an excellent easy to read bios template where he posted his bios settings.

    You need to post a bios template with your bios settings accurately filled in.

    I have tried a few different things, right now, as I previously said, everything in my BIOS is on stock settings except for the boot order.

    One instance, I only upped the FSB by 9 MHz to 275 Mhz and it would would reset itself. I'm not even concerned about getting a huge OC right now.

    1. Go into the bios and load optimized bios defaults.
    2. Change your boot order if needed.
    3. With 2x2GB of memory, set (G)MCH OverVoltage Control = +0.1V
    4. Save settings, exit the bios and see if this helps.

    Chances are with only one 2GB memory module installed, your system might be able to overclock somewhat without changing the voltage.

    We also need to know the brand and model number of your cpu cooler and power supply.

    Any tips on how to get the F6C bios to install in QFlash?
