Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 116

post #1151 of 5659
cogno,
Was ~345Mhz the ceiling for the Quad or have you been able to get it higher than there with a lower multi? If so, I guess that is a little better improvement for this Asus over the QX6700's 333Mhz ceiling.

i have seen in this thread people claim to running 3.6ghz or more with a CPU Vcore voltage of around 1.45V, it is in my opinion after a lot of research and reading articles from pro's see how anyone can get 3.6 or above with 1.45v or just over, its fine that someone posts CPU-Z screenies, but thats probably before it crashed or gone too 100% load.

I would like to see a combined screeny of orthos, coretemp and cpu-z to convince me otherwise. There seems to be a little bit of a competition on here and some ppl arent playing fair.

Sure some people will read this and wink and say 'But im special' but those are the kinda people im talking about.

Sorry for this rant but I am just saying what others are thinking!

I show you mine @ 3.5 with full orthos.Some people claim that they have higher oc.But maybe they no stable.

Does the tunic tower fit in a enermax chakra?

Dont believe everything you see!
I'm special.

Seriously though, I understand where you're coming from which is why I've just ran a couple of hours of Orthos small FTT to show my stable overclock in the attached screenie.

However, I can't stress enough that cooling is a very important factor when you start upping, not only CPU vCore, but chipset vCore aswell. Manageing the airflow inside your chassis is paramount. I need to have cool air from outside blowing directly over my CPU and Northbridge. Don't think that people here claim ridiculous overclocks just to enlarge their e-p3n0r, infact cognoscenti doesn't even have a p3n0r. Even though alot of people are useing an E6600 with a P5N32-E in this thread, doesn't mean that they all should set the same BIOS settings for 3.6Ghz. SLi systems can throw internal temperatures up aswell as bad cable management.

I was stuck at 3.2Ghz for a while myself as I wasn't sure what chipset voltages I should set. However, instead of makeing a thread and trying to copy everyone elses I simply did a little Googleing to find out the default values and started playing with them whenever Orthos would fail. Its a simply case of raise FSB until unstable, then raise CPU vCore until unstable, then try raiseing NorthBridge vCore. When it came to hitting 3.75Ghz, I simply asked cognoscenti a little question on what vCore she had her NorthBridge set to at 3.6Ghz, it turned out it was half a volt higher than mine so that's where my problem was.

When I first managed to boot into Windows at 3.6Ghz I was well chuffed, but Orthos would fail in less than a minute. I had Nvidia monitor open when I tried Orthos and straight away noticed that my previous load temps that gradually built up from 48*C to 54*C when at 3.4Ghz, shot straight from 58*C to 68*C in under a minute. Now, it doesn't take a genius to figure out that the reason Orthos was failing was down to cooling. With this in mind I've done the best I can to decrease temperature without spending any money.
  • Fresh thermal paste
  • Cleaned Tuniq Tower
  • Tidy cables and move HDD cage
  • Leave side panel off
  • Rearrange room so PC is by window
  • Pipe leading to outside for fresh cool air

Once I finished improveing what I could with cooling I tried Orthos again and sure enough my temperatures would shoot from 48*C, but hover just below 60*C. The improvisations I'd made to my cooling were enough to keep the CPU at a decent temperature under load and so Orthos wouldn't fail.

I wouldn't risk it if your Chakra is the type that has a 250mm intake fan on the chassis side panel.

Did you mean:
From looking through some reviews, it appears to me that two 8600GT cards would perform roughly on par with a single 8800GTS 320MB/640MB, at least to 1280x1024.
