Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 14

post #131 of 5659
Just some additional info regarding North and Southbridge temperatures:

I attached thermal probes to mine last night standard heatpipe cooling, mild overclock @ 1500 FSB) and found them running at:

SB 50c – 60c – under load
NB 75c – 85c – under load

That’s in a Antec p180 case with plenty of air-flow.

Pretty insane temperatures if you ask me, just ordered a pair of Spirit II chipset coolers as recommenced in this guide so we will see what difference I get.

That’s a hot picture for sure!

Am I the only one getting these obscene temperatures? Would be interesting to see other people’s results.

Should I make a change to my voltage?

Right now my voltage settings in the BIOS are at:

1.35V
Auto

Auto
Auto
1.55V
Auto

Robilar...I've seen your settings on image #6 where you have them at 1.53125, 2.25, 1.30, etc but I wasn't sure if I should go down that path yet until I hit 350fsb.

Your settings are fine. 48C is very decent for temps as well. Go into the pc probe config and up the threshold for the cpu vtt amount. 1.62 is fine (As you can see by your temps, it has no effect). Remember that pc probe wasn't specifically designed for the 680i boards (which is why the cpu temps are so far off).

You can leave off upping to other voltage settings until you hit a higher overclock. Always try before upping voltages. This board is surprisingly stable on overclocks without a ton of voltage increases.

Hence my guide explaining that this board absolutely needs active cooling on the nb/sb (even at stock they get fairly warm).

The ram goes in either the two blue or two white slots. doesn't matter as long as you match the colors. The white slots may be easier depending on your cooler mount. Use whatever works for you.

As I mentioned, if the clips were broken, that was likely a used or rma'd board and its just as well you returned it.

The Tuniq is pretty much one of the best cpu coolers. What you need to ensure is more intake fans. From your description, you have 3 fans removing air and one fan bringing air in. You may end up with negative air pressure inside your case which can interrupt air flow.

assuming the pic I linked is the correct case, I see that you have a front intake, top output, 2 rear output and a door intake. Do you have the door intake fan mounted?

1 x 80mm UV blue LED fan - front (included)
1 x 80mm UV blue LED fan - top (included)
2 x 80mm UV blue LED fan - rear (included)
1 x 120mm UV blue LED fan - side (included)
1 x 80mm fan -front between front panel and 3.5" drive cage (optional) (Add a fan here, it can't hurt)

I am having some major issues with this board.

I set ran Orthos on it on all base clocks just to make sure everything was fine. Orthos did not even go 2 hours before it errored. So I set it up again and this time stopped all apps and it restarted the computer at some point in the night. I did update to the latest BIOS and have disabled all things that are causing issues. What seems to be the issue is anytime I mess with the memory voltage I get a BSOD. I put the ram up to 2v as that is where it is rated and it immediately went on me. If anyone has the latest memtest please pm it or link me there.

Also I got a L2 e6300 and when I go to check my multi I have the option of going from x6 to x50?

http://www.memtest.org/

Here is the memtest link. You'll want the pre-compiled bootable iso (burn it onto a cd and boot with it) version 1.70

In the bios, you may have the option to change the multi upwards but it will not save it.


Leave the ram at auto settings for now and work on the cpu overclock. Make certain to set the ram to unlinked.

Up to 350 and everything is running ok. Ran the orthos test for a little bit over an hour and no issues. Temperature didn't vary much either with the slight upgrade. Also changed the cpu vtt amount so that the 1.62v doesn't flash red anymore

Moving on to 375 now.

I continue to learn more and more each day here...and I have you personally to thank!

I guess it probably makes sense now to go out get some of the other cooling mechanisms you recommend. But I'm a little unsure of what each of these 3 items actually do:

2 of these
http://www.bigfootcomputers.com/Merc...tegory_Code=40

My concern here is that my sound card extends over the battery. (Is that where these go?)

http://www.bigfootcomputers.com/Merc...tegory_Code=40

Not really sure what this one is either.


and 2 sets of these?

http://www.bigfootcomputers.com/Merc...tegory_Code=40

I don't object to spending another $100-$150 on a system that I've already spent close to $3000 on....just want to make sure what I'm buying!

I agree, im interested in buying some of these coolers too.

There looks to be little room down by the first pci slot where my 8800 is so i dont know how i would fit on one of these????
