Question about Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 (0818313003027) Motherboard
I'm running E4300 4gb OCZ PC 6400 7900GS 585w psu on DS3 rev 3.3 F12 I've had this problem a while ago where whenever I overclock the pc will just reboot, even if i oc by 1 mhz. After it resets to 1.8 ghz it'd then the system boots to PCI device listing, and it just stays there until i manually reboot. I got rid of this problem by manually resetting CMOS (taking out battery) at which point I figured out the problem was with AHCI since that was the only setting I changed to cause the problem. Gigabyte told me it's problem with jmicron driver but even after reinstalling their own driver it's still not fixed. However, I was able to overclock using just ide. Recently the problem came back, and no matter what I do, including clearing cmos, rolling back driver, upping vcore, different mem timing and settings, if I change clock speed by as much as 1 mhz it reboots and freezes at pci device listing. Furthermore to confirm my suspicion that it's problem with the gigabyte sata control when i tried to format and reinstall vista it said that vista can't be installed on the drive. Only by manually clearing cmos can i get it to even boot and install, but only at stock speed. Think i should just rma? but goddam i don't want to wait a month or 3.... Any thoughts? Another o/c question once i get this sorted out, how come my e4300 has such **** oc? I hear ppl getting 3 ghz on stock hsf, while I got a lapped e4300 with lapped big typhoon and 3 case fans and i can barely get it stable at 3 ghz. i have 80mm blowing air in front and side and 120 over cpu and out top rear. i guess i just have **** luck with cpu and mobos....
I also had problems overclocking my e5300! But Here's the solution Download a program called FSB (front side bus) After you download this program it gets a little tricky You need to check your motherboard for the model number ECT and write it down! Example my mobo is a hp with the model # of ics9lprs419dflf
After you have your model # it's time to open (FSB) okay click on the customize tab and then click to the right of where it says clock generator and bring down the list of model numbers if yours is not there don't freak out just yet because in fact the model number I used was not exact neither! But this is where It gets tricky! Read threw all the model numbers that FSB has listed try to find the closest model # to your mobo #s for example my original number ended with FLF so I found the closest #s related to my mobo #s. This is a trial and error process but is proven effective! After you have selected the closest number click set SET FSB! if your computer does not freeze than you have selected the correct model # but if it does freeze manually restart your computer and try a different model #. It took me about 30 different model numbers to find the correct one so have patience! After you have found the correct model # click get FSB after you do this your current clock speed should show up in MHz in the middle right box under where it says Set FSB. Above your current clock speed is a green box with a number /760 mine is 37/760 right under this green box you will see 2 arrows click the right arrow 3 times and then click Set FSB! Now check your current clock speed it will be slightly higher than before! Keep doing this in small increments and check you your CPU's Temperature by using cpuid and make sure your temp doesn't exceed to high you can also download amd overdrive or a program of this sort and increase your fan speeds this will allow you to reach a higher GHz speed! After you have clocked to a ghz that you are happy with with a maintained temp! Your ready to game! Just remember when you shut your computer down your original bios will change it back to its default ghz speed so just Open FSB when you turn your computer on and simply click get FSB then click the arrows back to the desired clock speed and click Set FSB ! Just be careful and watch your temperatures I got my
Pentium (R) dual core e5300 with original heat sink up to 3.00ghz from 2.569ghz! (Just be careful and don't exceed the recommended temperatures for you CPU!
Hope I've helped

Understand that not all computers can be overclocked. For one, laptops are pretty much out of the question. Also, any OEM (original equipment manufacturer) computer, such as a Dell, HP or E-machine, will be virtually impossible to overclock, so your best bet for overclocking is to purchase or build a custom system, but keep in mind that some motherboards can't be used to overclock. Now let's begin.
The BIOS. Overclocking is best done in the computer’s BIOS. There are some software programs available which allow you to overclock inside the operating system, but the best results are achieved by changing BIOS settings. Usually you can get into your BIOS by pressing DEL (some systems may use F2, F10, or Ctrl-Enter) as soon as your computer begins the POST Here, you can change your FSB (front side bus), memory timings, and your CPU multiplier CPU Clock Ratio
