Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 137

post #1361 of 5659
I know this is fairly off topic, but I trust your guys' opinions.

I'm thinking about reformatting my machine and finally putting windows vista ultimate on my computer. I was wondering if there are any known issues with my hardware that I should be aware of. Also, should I go with 32bit or 64bit? Any thoughts would be great.

I agree with alex on the 32 bit vista. 64 bit is hampered by a lack of drivers.

Am I going to have any issues with any monitoring or benchmarking software that you know of?

Thats a crapshoot. coretemp and cpu-z have both been updated by the authors to support vista and I believe ntune has also been updated (Although the newest version of ntune doesn't work properly with our board). 5.05.18 works well with this board but I don't know how it relates to vista.

I can't comment on ATI tool but someone here should know.


Can I ask why you are going to vista? The general consensus on it is that its slower than XP in all ways and with a distinct lack of dx10 games available, it might be premature to go to it. Also if you are trying to set bench records, vista will hinder your scores.

So far so good. Its completely stable and overclocks seem to be identical. I can only state that the bios update is likely to fix ram compatibility issues (As mentioned in notes) as there are certain brands/models of ram that don't play well with this board. I am wondering if quad core overclocking is also improved. One thing that was also mentioned in the notes is changes to raid firmware in the bios which may improve performance. I know several of our forummers have this board with raid so we can see if they got a boost.

I don't really have a good reason to go to vista, I just kind of want to try it out for a while and see what I think. I'm not trying to set any bench records, which should be obvious for my setup, heh. I could try dual booting, but that may cause more problems then it's worth. Unless I find some solid reasons not to switch to it by later tonight, I might start working on the reformatting tonight or tomorrow. I will probably also get around to taking some pictures of my setup to share with everyone.

Thanks Rob, guess I'll just hang with 1002 for now since I don't appear to have any ram issues.

I'm curious to see (as I'm sure many are) how this board will be compatible with Penryn. My main concern is SLI, so it'll be interesting to see how things unfold over the next few months.
