ASUS P5N-E SLI 650i Thread - Page 552

post #5511 of 9621
RAM Question.

this board says memory standard is ddr2 @ 800MHz. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131142

is it a waste of money to get ram that is greater than pc6400?
for example, pc8500...would buying something like this be a waste of money?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820148070

also, if buying the above memory is a waste because of the limitations of the P5N-E mobo, is it possible to overclock my pc6400 over 800MHz.

Thanks for the help people.

you have some reading to do. look through this thread. i have the e6850 now and i originally had the q6600. i could not get the quad past 2.88GHz and i have the dual at 3.6GHz. both chips run nice on this board and which chip to buy depends on what you use your computer for.

has anyone been able to get to 1600 FSB with the e6600 processor, DDR2 800 memory, and the original NB heatsink?

Please help me get past my ~1520 FSB block.

Hi,

Could you write your bios settings for running q6600 @2.88?

I am a noob so take all this with that in mind...it was a lot of trial and error and I may have done something stupid

1. bios 803
2. memory (4x1G OCZ) - I made sure the timings were right by running memtest for a couple of runs with the CPU at standard speed.
3. fsb at 1399. Call it superstition, but someone else also noted that odd numbers seem to work better.
4. memory was set to linked/sync. I think this is really important. When I was running unlinked, I could boot, but vista had trouble loading.
5. voltage at 1.35625
6. offset .1
7. memory voltage at 2.175
8. NB at 1.56 (I think this is more needed due to running 4 sticks).
9. fan on NB and I did the Mosfet cooling (found in this thread).
10. No pencil mod (yet)
11. Zalman 9700

CPU temps are fine. low 50s at full load after 7 hours.
NB was at low 50s...I don't know if that is okay.

What I saw was that there did seem to be a rather large hole in the FSB. so i just tried a much higher number and worked down from there.
Hi,
Do you think it is relevant that you had BIOS in v803? Mine is 703 and in 803 they added support for 1333 Mhz CPUs, so maybe this is helpful...?
I did manage to run my q6600 at 2.8, but sometimes its difficult to boot the system. Is 2.8 in the gap you mentioned?

Thanks

I have q6600 at 3.2.(same mobo).my settings are;356x9.-1.4 vcore-1.92 ram-1.57 NB.sinked and linked (ram runs at a comfortable 712mhz)

And which version of bios have you got?
post #5518 of 9621
Alright I have mine running very stable at 3.2Ghz now:

0803 Bios
1600Mhz FSB
800Mhz Memory
I have the FSB/Memory Linked and set to sync so they're running at 1:1 and it's perfectly stable, I also have my timings set at 4-4-4-12 2T.

Arctic Freezer Pro 7 and factory NB heatsink.

I left the voltages to auto and they seem to be alright.
post #5519 of 9621
I notice that there are holes near the Mosfets of the p5n-e. Like it's made for a heatsink to be put on them.

Anyone know witch heatsink fits there?

thanks
