Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 112

post #1111 of 5659
Cheapo NB cooling.

40mmx40mm fan and 2 632x1" nylon screws (~$5.00)

Better than nothing, 10 minutes.

Boots fine with one stick of RAM in any slot.
The other stick does not boot at all in any slot.
Increased mem voltage to 2.1
Upgraded bios to 1002
Same results.
Tried installing Windows with the one stick and installer fails copying files to the hard drive. (this may or may not be a separate issue)
I just don't trust the memory.


Just wanted a second opinion before sending back the RAM and picking up more today.

Thanks!
I had a similar problem with what appears to be the same ram, RMA'd it and haven't had a problem yet.

Similar concept is this pic (not mine i went for the thermaltake coolers) 2nd pic is my setup. You spent all that money on sli graphics and couldn't shell out $40 for decent chipset cooling? You might want to check you sb temps with a probe. Under the two gpu (I had a similar set up with two 8800gtx) its probably running close to 60C

I've read some bad thing about this case. While the cooling is good (depending on what you have in it), cabling is a nightmare. I'm in the market for a new case (thinking about the LIAN LI PC-V2000APLUSII $$$), let me know how it works out

Alright.

I went out and got me some new RAM.
I decided to live a little and came away with the OCZ PC2 8500 Reaper Series. 5-5-5-15. Very interesting pipes on the top side of these things.

Booted up.
Upped the voltage to 2.3.
Got the beep I was looking for.
And I'm off to the races.

Considering what a horror this build has been I'm happy just to get this far. So for the time being I'm going to monitor the temps and establish some baselines before I move ahead.

I will post some pics and numbers in the morrow.

Robilar, I thought the game was tonight but it's tomorrow. Go Sens!

What is your budget on a case? I also commented in similar fashion about the antec 900 earlier. I had the case for two days before returning it. Cabling and cramped space for a pair of 8800gtx was my main issue. (also the fans are loud on even medium settings)

Thats some nice ram. Same IC's as the OCZ 8500 I'm using. You can hit 1066 easily with it if you desire although tight timings at 1T benches better.

Why I said my CPU has problem yesterday, because the mobo could run with my 2nd hand E6300. I don't have time to rma the faulty E6420 as there is some urgent matter in the office. Never mind, I could play around with this E6300. I put back the stock heatpipe as I said. It was so strange that when I turn on the PC, it could not post. Killed another CPU as well? Anyway, I resit the cpu again and no luck to bring it works. I changed back the suspected dead E6420. As change the Geminii is very time consuming, I just pick the stock HSF for test. Surprisingly it could boot. Then tried with E6300, it could boot as well. Tried to use Geminii, no boot. Could not think about why a HSF could cause the problem. I am quite sure I know how to install geminii as I could have no problem in many installations previously.

With the stock HSF and heatpipe, I could only have 2.9G with the E6420, before, I could have 3.4G with the same bios setting. 62C for full load. E6300 could only push up to 2.8G. I don't know whether the HSF and heatpipe matters, or the mobo or CPU has problem. Anyway, can't rma the mobo as it could run at stock speed.

Run 3Dmark06 to see how worst the situation is. Single card scored 117xx, previous run was 105xx. More than 1000 marks increase with slower clock, this drive me crazy. Windows boots superfast.

I will get a ultra120 extreme today, the shop just have stock yesterday. No more geminii in my system.
