ASUS P5N-E SLI 650i Thread - Page 837

post #8361 of 9621
Is it safe to have 1.56V on the northbridge without any aftermarket cooling? I need to up the NB voltage to get 3.15Ghz or higher, but I don't want to overheat the board.

I'm doing it... although I did apply AS5 and I have a 120mm fan blowing on it.

Even better if u find some small 40 mm fan which will fit perfectly and just attach to nb.

Yeah, I have no cooling other than stock. No paste, no fans, nothing. Unless you count case fans and the fan on the bottom of the PSU.

anyway, I can tell you this, I just dropped another 2x1gb of patriot memory on my board, and I didnt realize they had different timings then the 2 sticks I already had (existing had 4-4-4-12, new are stock at 5-5-5-12) I was able to set the timings at 5-5-5-12 and boot with the old sticks, then I dropped in the new and all was good (I made sure that the sticks were matched to each other, ie. slot a1 and b1 for the old, and a2 and b2 with the new)

so what ever sticks have the looser or higher timings, bios has to be set to that.. and you may have to up your voltage a bit to handle the load of more ram.. good luck!
The fact is: I'm not going to use 8GB..
I have 2 GB (2x1GB). with this configuration I'll get 6GB..

I want this .. because I think 4GB is just too little to justify going 64bits..
and I want to have a little more..

also.. my current and my possible-future memory have the same timings.. I already checked that..

I'll see what I'll do..

thanks anyway!

Hi, I'm new to overclock.net, I've got this motherboard second hand/refurbished.
I'm trying to build a mid level system. I've just order some Corsair Dominator 4GB PC8500 DDR2 for it. I'm hoping to over clock my P4 when its up & running just to get use to overclocking, hoping later on to get a Q6600. Any advise would be appreciated.

Welcome to the P5n-e club! You should have pretty good luck OC'ing that P4 with this board. I currently oc my 3GHz P4 to 4GHz with no problems. If you have any specific questions, I'll be glad to try and help.

As for the Q6600, you should do a search of this thread for that. Most people seem to have a hard time getting past 3Ghz with a Q6600 on a P5N-e. If you do go that route though, here is a thread on that very thing.

Good Luck!

Good Luck!
Thank you! I will be asking a few things.

But I've run into a small problem already, I've just up dated my bios from 701 to 1301 with no problems.
After updating bios I cleared the cmos & then went into bios & set everything up then saved & exited.
But now when I boot I get a message saying:-

"Unknown CPU detected - Bios update is required to unleash its full power."

I'm not sure what I've done wrong or if I missed something.

But all I can say is help.

Updated

I've try reflasing bios with v 1101 & 1201, but i'm still getting the same message.
Not sure what to do now?

Were you having problems with the original bios that was on the motherboard? Are you oc'ing it from the get-go or have you tried booting with stock settings? Before you try oc'ing anything make sure everything works at stock then increase frequencies slowly.

I would flash back to whatever bios worked the first time and use that until you upgrade your CPU.

Edit to add: After searching the AsusTek forum for this issue it seems that this problem occurs when the bios is not flashed in a specific way. Supposedly, sometimes it works to enter bios and F10 save/exit without changing anything (kinda like a jolt in the pants for the mb?). Here is a how-to on flashing the P5n-e bios. The guy who wrote obviously doesn't speak English as a first language but it seems that he know a lot about this mb.

PS. Do not flash from Windows.
