Anybody experienced any stability or compatibility issues with the 608 BIOS? Recently upgraded to this board, and couldn't even last more than a minute or 2 on my desktop in Vista before it would hard lock. It would only run in safe mode, or if I reverted to standard vga driver. Ran ok in XP, except for 1 hard lockup while gaming. Upgraded to the 901 BIOS last night and Vista has been running since then with the latest WHQL Forceware off Nvidia's site (169.25) for Vista. Voltages and temps are fine. Still not sure if the BIOS upgrade totally solved my issue or not, will see soon.

0608 has been working like a charm for me. I'm the kind of person that doesn't like to flash his BIOS unless I run into a problem that I know can be attributed to it. 0608 so far seems very stable for most.

Is there any major reason why I would want to update the BIOS aside from other CPU's being added as in the previous version (08xx) and new memroy support for this one?

I have a overheating problem with my northbridge chipset, I'm not looking for a replacement heatsink, but I'd like to know how to get the existing one off =p. Its the one with two black push pins.

Ok, this new fan scares the **** out of me!

Go kart on steroids? A whole pack of go karts having 'roid rage!

There's a reason why they sell a grill with it. According to speed fan this thing topped out at 7,180RPM! I have it turned down to half and it's still moving as much air as my 92mm exhaust fan.

I think I'll go carve a turkey with it.

Is there any way to control the speed through the BIOS? I tooled around with chassis fan option but no luck. It generates too much noise, air and most of all vibration until I can get into SpeedFan and shut it down to where I need it.

Turning on QFan in the hardware monitor section should help. At least it won't be at max constantly. Personally, I would just get a fan controller like the Sunbeam Rheobus.

Has it helped temps at all?

Hi, I haven't posted to this thread in a few hundred pages, my system has been stable and now I am ready to boost it up. I have ordered a second video card and I am wondering what I need to know to install it and get SLI working.

My original card is:
EVGA e-GeForce 8800 GTX 768MB 768-P2-N831-BR

The new one coming is

EVGA e-GeForce 8800 GTX 768MB 768-P2-N831-AR

So the only difference is the AR / BR thing. My understanding is AR is new and BR has been returned and fixed and certified for use. If this is true that is not cool since it was supposed to be new with my PC. Anyway practically speaking they are identical.

Do you think my power supply is up to the task:

RP600-PCAR

I plan to delete the drivers, run driver sweeper then shut down and install.

I need to figure out what to do with the bridge and is there a switch on the board or anything?

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi. My PC has been running fine for 6 months however, 2 weeks ago I began getting Blue screens whenever i start my computer after about 10s-1minute of being in Vista (x64 Ultimate). THE BSOD are usually PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA or IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and have had system_service_exemption. After the restart the pc generally works ok. Recently programs have crashed more frequently so I ran memtest.

Memest found numerous errors. I also ran memtest86+ (v2.01) which also found many errors (esp during test 5). I have 4gb of ram (2 x 1gb of corsair, and 2 x 1gb of Geil 6400) I began by lowering memory speeds to 667, lower timings to 5-5-518-2T and played with higher and lower Ram voltages (1.8-2.2V). I recieved no errors with each stick individually (tested for 9hours each and tested a stick in each slot). I also get errors with just the 2 corsair in slots A1 and B1 or A1 A2. I reduced my CPU speed and enabled virtualization tech with no effect. I reinstalled vista with vista SP1. I heatsinked southbridge and added a fan to northbridge. I also changed the bios to the latest 0901 and then back down to 0608 and 0703 (all had memory errors). I have also unistalled norton 360, nvidia display drivers (8800GTS 640mb) and creative audio drivers for my X-fi. Anything else I can do would be very much appreciated??

Motherboard: p5N-e sli bios 0703
CPU: E6750 @ 3Ghz @ 1.33V / NB @ 1.4V
Ram: 2 x 1Gb PC2-6400. CM2X1024-6400C5DHX CORSAIR
2 x 1Gb PC2-6400 GEIL
5-5-5-18-2T @ 2.1V

Here's hoping I win h00chi3's freebie give away then.

I'm a little let down that the BIOS doesn't let you limit the fan speed but that's beside the point. I'm not sure about temps since I haven't installed it but the northbridge heatsink with the extra voltage is VERY warm to the touch.

It definitely needs something so I'll give it a shot and see if it makes too much vibration and noise. I'm thinking it will.
