From looking through some reviews, it appears to me that two 8800GT cards would perform roughly on par with a single 8800GTS 320MB/640MB, at least to 1280x1024.

Hi guys, I am relatively new to the forums, and a new player in the overclocking game. *waves*

I've been reading this thread with interest for the past couple of weeks. In fairness I have however only managed to read up to about p50 and the last 20 posts or so.

I started to read it because I ordered a P5N32-E PLUS motherboard the other week as part of my new rig (see specs below) and wanted to overclock my e6420 when it arrived.

I want to overclock the e6420 on stock cooling, and hopefully later on a better cooling system - hopefully when prices come down and more stock comes in.

Anyhow I procrastinate. I set up my rig (minus HDD and CASE) and powered up (using my old case for a power button - anyone know how to jimmy rig one without having to use a case?). I went into the BIOS and had a look around. Took lots of pictures. Then I decided to update the BIOS to the 1002 version which I downloaded from ASUS' website. I put it on a FAT32 formatted USB stick, plugged it into the USB port and rebooted. I went into EZFlash and the system told me it had the 0302 BIOS on it currently. I looked on the C: drive and the 1002.BIN file was there and I pressed ENTER and it started to "check file" and then it came up with the following error message:

Quote:
ROM ID in the file is incompatible with the existing BIOS!


Drat! OK so I know I have the PLUS version of the board, but from reading this thread I thought I'd be able to flash it with this BIOS!? If you go to ASUS website and look for the BIOS' available for the plus board it seems to just STOP at the BETA VERSION 0602 BIOS! The last available NON BETA BIOS for this board is 0501.

Could someone give me some advice on what to do please?

I also noticed something a little alarming on ASUS' site. My e6420 CPU says it will only work with the 0501 BIOS for this board! I have the 0302 BIOS on this board yet it managed to get into the BIOS for me! What is going on here?

Should I FLASH my BIOS to the 0501 version first? and then maybe try the 1002 (non-plus) version after? or should I just FLASH it to 0501 and be happy that everything I have seems to be working?

Apologies for all the questions.

I have pictures of every screen in the BIOS if you need any more data.

Thanks for any help you can give me on this matter.

cheers,

Eveilsor

1002 is not compatible with the plus version motherboard.

I think 0602 is the latest for your board.

These boards may sound familiar in the name but they are not that close.


I dont really understand why you are wanting to put the 1002 version on your board which is totally different setup for the 1002 bios.

If I was you I would have bought the non plus version.

hehe

Thanks for the ooba fast response.

So do you suggest I FLASH it to the BETA or to the 0501 version?

and will the 0501 version be good enough for overclocking?

[edit]

was nice of you to respond, then CHANGE your response without any 'edit' references. LMAO

I know my PLUS board is a bit of a hybrid, a sheep in wolfs clothing as it were! hehe. From what I read in reviews elsewhere though this version was better. After reading this thread I'm starting to think otherwise.

[re-edit]
er hello up there, looky down here! roflmao

For your last comments read what I wrote in here. This is a like a re-edit war going on. LMAO

OK I have a different screenie for you taken about an hour ago:

What is with the 0602 BIOS. Is it BETA or not?

I have seen some nice reviews on the PLUS version as well. I also ran a crossed some over clocking guides as well I will try to dig them up tomorrow and pass them along. I would see if you could RMA it and get the non-PLUSE version though. It seams like you can do a lot more with it. Note I’m still deciding on my new rig, so I do not have any hands-on experience with either!
