Asus P5N32-E OC Problem

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am trying to overclock my E6600 on this board, however, when the fsb is set to be over 1200 (ram at 600), the voltage is automatically upped to 1.38v from 1.213v. I have the FSB-Memory Clock mode set to linked, and FSB-Memory Ratio set to Sync Mode.

This happens if IO have the vcore voltage set to Auto, or if i have it set to 1.2125, or any other value.

Any help would be appreciated, and I can provide more detailed bios settings if they are needed.

Continued trying to resolve the issue for a long while last night, but no matter how I set the options for the overclock, it always makes the vcore jump to 1.37v after the fsb is 1200+.=(, really need help with this, think i might have to RMA my board.

I found something really disturbing about the vcore. It might be the reason why readings are so far off for everyone. I'm getting the impression that even with the vcore specified its still wanting to autodetect vcore a lot of times. Here is my reasoning.

When I switched over to air cooling I lost stability at 3.82Ghz and had to drop down to about 3.71Ghz. Now even at that its reading 1.37v instead of 1.39v as before. So even at 3.71Ghz its not completely stable any more. Dropped CPU again this morning to 3.6Ghz and now vcore reads 1.28-1.29v! Even when I bumped BIOS from 1.5v to 1.55v it stayed 1.29v. Those are the exact voltages it picks when VCORE is set to auto. This really sucks hard. I'm going to try the hardware vcore mod and see what happens. Maybe try yet another BIOS and clearing NVRAM again.

The good news. If its really just autodetecting vcore when its set manually then its most likely a BIOS issue that can be fixed.
What BIOS are you using? I would update to the latest BIOS and see what happens.
