Robilar laid out in his guide (great guide, many thanks) except for: Corsair 8500cs5, 1 BFG 8800GTX, Antec 900 case, Zalman 9700, (2) Thermaltake Extreme Spirit II (north/south). My power settings are:
v.core 1.53125, mem 2.25, NB 1.4, SB 1.55, CPU VTT 1.55. Bios has been updated.

These are bios settings results:
@1490 FSB - Mem auto - No Post
@1485 FSB - mem auto - Failed Otheros Test within 5min - settings below ran Otheros for 4hrs no problems - highest temp 56 C.
@1480 FSB -mem auto - CPUMARK crashes/os reboot within 5min
@1475 FSB -mem auto - CPUMARK crashes/os reboot within 5min
@1470 FSB - Stable - CPUMARK06 results score 11176 CPU-Z rates FSB 1466.7

I have a Thermaltake PSU toughpower 750.

Any ideas to get better performance under air?

You shouldnt really need vcore to be that high at 1.53 ,drop it to around 1.43 to 1.48 max
I would raise the NB to around 1.5 for more stability at higher overclocks.

Try memory unlinked and tap in FSB of 1601 to see if this jumps over the FSB strap.

Failing that it may be that your chip simply is not a high overclocker.
You can always try and buy one from Tankguys etc who can get hold of higher rated weeks.

This is debatable, the Zalman provides pretty good air flow in the case around the cpu but other members here have used the mosfets to help out with heat dissipation.
I had trouble with my first p5n32 board after removing the stock cooling and using aftermarket but I can't say for certain it was due to this.

I'm getting as high as I want to go now without the aftermarket cooling so I dont think its always necessary. Maybe only contributes to extending the life of board by running lower temps.

From memory ,no.
I think the cards were too long and wouldnt allow it but it was awhile ago now since I had it.
I had it sideways on there and it managed to fit between 2 x 8800 cards.

Thanks for all the useful info on the thread.

Asus P5N32-E SLi nForce 680 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 "LGA775 Conroe" 2.40GHz (1066FSB)
Zalman CNPS9500-AT Aero Flower (Socket 775) CPU Cooler
OCZ 2GB (2 x 1GB) PC2-8500 1066MHz SLI-Ready Edition Dual Channel DDR2
BFG 800W UK/PFC Approved PSU

I followed Robilars guide and added the Two thermaltake coolers to my board, after removing the stock heatpipes.

I used the unlinked method and clocked my FSB to 1400 and my memory to 1066. Giving me a 3.35 Ghz overclock on my CPU, also using the 1002 bios.

The problem is i dont see any improvement at all in the benchmarks, should i? i am using 3dmark 06.

Does anyone have a similar system who can give me some help here? i have tried setting the timings manually at 5-5-5-15 and 4-4-4-8 but system then seems to become unstable and wont boot at times unless i hard power off and turn back, on at which point it tells me i should revert to defaults and reboot. I also tried setting the Memory Voltage to 2.1v but that didnt seem to help, what would really help me is for someone to take a look at my specs and give me some input.

(PICS ATTACHED BELOW)

I am willing to pay the person who gives me best results say $30.

Thanks in advance.

You will definately see an increase in most benchmarks as your cpu at 3.35 is computing alot quicker than it normally does at stock 2.4ghz.

Look in your 3dmark06 results.
Go to the breakdown where you see the individual components that make up your score.
The cpu score will definately be higher than what you get at 2.4.

Like I said to the other poster your particular chip may be topping out and not like going higher.
there is no guarantee with these setups that they will all reach say 3.6 or 3.8ghz.

Look at my post 1011 and try those settings and see if it helps anything.

It looks like your HR-05 is bent over slightly. Did you bend it? It looks vertical rather than angled in all the other images I've seen. Are you using the HR-05 or the HR-05 SLI?

Would you recommend this cooler for the southbridge having had to install and use it or go for something else? The reason I was looking at having it where I had it in my diagram was to try and keep it fanless by using the airflow from my 100mm bottom entry fan on the front of my case.

I'm slightly worried the Thermaltakes mentioned earlier will be whiney because of the small fans. It looks like you've got one on your northbridge. Are they audible? Would you choose one for the southbridge?

Thanks for your help.

i just want to report that on my system, when i left the LDT setting on 5x i could boot out of the bios but after that it wouldn't post again. after trying many different things i tried lowering it to 4x and now everything works great. this cought my by surprise because in your guide you said to leave it at 5x. so anyways if you can't post after the first boot out of the bios then try lowering the LDT multi.

I did bend it slightly so it would fit.

Yes its the sli version.

No the little fan on the thermaltakes dont seem to be noisy.
My 'quiet' zalman is noisier

Thanks. I'll probably use one of the Thermaltakes instead of the HR-05 SLI then. I'll have to think about the northbridge.

I'm allergic to fan noise, to the extent that I'm thinking of using sound deadening fabric on the inside of my case

lol the card with the board is ok -for my ears anyway!

I just blew £770/$1500 on the qx6800 this afternoon.

That will be fun to play with.
