Thanks for the help.

I saw that as well as the Jing unit as well. I see how it offsets but I don't think it can squeeze between the cards like it would with the larger gap that exists between 2 SLIed cards i.e. on the battery side it looks like the heat pipes would hit a condensor and/or the vid card on the south and hit the other vid card to the north.

If it can offset towards the end of the video cards (memory side) then it has to clear another condensor, the Corsair memory cooler as well as the power cabling to the 3 video cards. I just don't think something is going to get in there other than some custom setup.

I'm just not sure anything will work with that 3rd card in there but thanks again for the help.

First off thanks for all the people posting here. This guide has been really helpful along with everyone else's input.

I'm new to OC'ing and this will be my first project. Parts are arriving Thursday/Friday and I'll start putting it all together.

I have a few questions:

1. When actually assembling the unit, should I make all the motherboard mods (i.e. Mosfet , NB , and SB) beforehand or should I setup everything else up and test the system before?

Note: I'll be using the Spirit II on the NB, HR-05 on the SB, and Swiftech MC21's on the Mosfets.

2. Is there anything I should be aware of when assembling the PC? I've built PC's in the past before , what I mean is are there any specific things that I should be aware of in regards to some of the components I'm using?

3. I'm planning on using windows vista 32-bit, how does this effect overclocking?

4. Are people here testing under windows XP? And if so why?

5. If you can run stable under windows XP does that imply you can run stable
under windows vista?

6. Sorta off topic but can you dual boot OS's for vista and XP and if so how is it done?

Looking forward to building and testing this setup. I'm sure I'm going to need a lot of help so thanks in advance for all your input.

A pic of the layout might aid you in getting help.

1)Yes! Make sure your stuff works first. That was if something is DOA then you can RMA without and hasel (or as much work putting your stock cooling back). Also it is a good time to take some base-line reading. These will help in seeing the effects if your tweaking (OC and cooling).
2)I would dry fis some of the components such as mobo and graphics card to see if any case mods will be necessary.
3)OS “should be” independent from OC settings much like it is unaware of RAID. Others my chime in here.
4)Can not answer for sure, but I would think that most testing utilities are build for XP (32 bit).
5)See #3.
6)While I have not played with Vista, most OSes alow for dual-boot during the installation. There usually is a particular order (some combinations of linux and windows require windows to be installed first, though I prefer grub as my boot loader). Also you will need to partition your drives (or use separate drives). One for each OS. Some like to have a third for common/shared data. Do not format the second (or third) partition. Let the individual OS installers do it for you. Different OSes prefer different file systems. Also vista has a “security future” that keeps other OSes (including vista) from accessing a drive. Make sure this is not enabled. Prior to installing any apps that may use the third partition make sure and can be read and written to by both OSes. And finally it is best to change the drive letter of your CD/DVD ROMS to Z for all OSes prior to installing any apps. This will help eliminate confusion.

When I got my replacement board I just went ahead and changed the stock cooling before powering it on. There's no harm in setting up beforehand just to make sure your new board isn't DOA.

Just be extremely careful when you remove the stock motherboard coolers. You don't want to scratch your new board trying to get them out.

I'm useing Vista x64 Business and CPU overclocking is the same as its always best done through the BIOS anyway. Though you may find that you'll belimited with regards to what programs you can use to monitor temps and volts as not all of them work in Vista. I've had no problems at all getting the latest SpeedFan or Everest working on my installation.

You also may come across issues trying to overclock your graphics card. I know for a fact that no software is available at present for overclocking in the x64 version. I've had to use nvFlash and NiHibiTor to flash my graphics card BIOS's with updated default clocks. Though I hear that most people are able to get the latest ATI Tool to work in Vista x86.

As said, I'm useing Vista.

Of course, though you may notice small increases in graphics card temperatures as Vista uses a more demanding GUI than XP.

1. Partition your hard drive. In Windows XP you can use a partitioning program like PartitionMagic to create a new primary partition to install Vista on. Make it at least 20 gigabytes in size.

2. Install Vista on the new partition. Pop in the Vista CD and point it to your newly-created partition as the installation destination. Installation will restart your machine at various points.

3. Choose your operating system on boot. Once Vista is installed on your newly-created partition, on boot up, you'll get a choice to start XP or Vista. The default is Vista. However, this can be changed using Vista's boot manager.

I have built a system with an E6600, P5N32-E SLi & a Zalman 9700. The problem is that I can not get a correct temp reading.
3.2GHz coretemp Idle 21c load 41c ambient temp 24c This is just not right.
I am using coretemp 0.95 & everest 4.00.976 (Even lower temps)
I have read through most of this thread and from all accounts coretemp should give me a correct reading.
Has any one had this problem and do you know how to get a correct reading?

Ambient of 24c? you must live in the north island?

those are some pretty good temps for the overclock.
Coretemp should be pretty close, everest distant 2nd.
