The CPU socket area is pretty free of obstructions and Gigabyte has done a good layout job with the board’s main ATX power connections. I haven’t heard of major issues relating to the Pentium or Core 2 chips, but this isn’t to say they’re not out there. Not exactly as extreme as the GAP-DQ6 of course, but Gigabyte has allowed a good amount of freedom in terms of frequency, voltage and memory timings. Big B , Jun 8, Did you install the Intel. For those that want to know, the GAP-DS3 retail board that we got had a C1 stepping P chipset and not the supposedly better overclockable C2 stepping.

Expansion capabilities on the board are very good as well. I’d be hard pressed to tell you where to look specifically.
It happens when I am playing games too. I read on slashdot aufio some bugs with duocore processors, but I don’t know if it relates to my issue.
CitznFishJul 7, CitznFishJun 7, Big BJul 6, Are you using the IDE port on the motherboard? What I can say is that right now, there doesn’t appear to be any malicious code out there that’s taking advantage of the exploits and that you might want to check Gigabyte or Asus website for a BIOS update that addresses some of these exploits.
CitznFishJun 12, Big BJul 13, CitznFishJul 17, The major feature of the DS3 is of course the full use of solid capacitors, which practically ensure that you’ll never need to worry about leakage or so they claimincreasing motherboard lifespan and durability.

It’s not just my board. CitznFishJul 6, Besides the PCIe x16 graphics slot, we have three PCI slots and another three PCIe x1 slots, so there should be more than enough leeway for any add-on cards you may like to have.
At these speeds, the DS3 is able to match up clock to clock with what the DQ6 could do and was completely stable under windows, though we were concerned about how hot the chipset was running.
Where, I can’t tell you, as it’s been a long time since I had a Gigabyte motherboard. Big BJun 8, Not exactly as extreme as the GAP-DQ6 of course, but Gigabyte has allowed a good amount of freedom in terms gigaybte frequency, voltage and memory timings. Share This Page Tweet.

The topmost PCIe x1 slot also stands a chance to be blocked, depending on the type of graphics card and cooler that is used of course. For our overclocking tests on the GAP-DS3, we used the infamous Intel Core 2 Duo E processor, reduced the multiplier to 6x and set the memory divider at its lowest before we tried to ramp up the motherboard FSB.

This can’t just be happening to me and my friend. This is where it gets interesting. If you’ve skimmed through ggiabyte technical specifications, you’ll see that the GSP-DS3 looks very much like the MSI P Neo motherboard from a figabyte set perspective, but upon a closer look, Gigabyte seems to have made sure that their board is able to top their rivals.
Another concern we have is the lack of fan headers on the board with only one open header other than for the CPU fan.
