Careful here..

Your cpu may decide it's happy at 3.5ghz or whatever without further vcore. Usually in circumstances such as this, you have to apply core voltage in an exponential manner to achieve higher clocks which can become a problem with respect to cooling and electron migration, (chip life).

But your board still may have more headroom with regard to fsb. Lowering the multiplier and raising fsb to achieve the same cpu clock speed can result in higher memory bandwidth depending on the strap you're on. You can check this with SiSoft Sandra Lite..

Higher memory bandwidth in many instances will improve performance in games as well as benchmarks. Ultimately it's all a matter of trial (and error). But staying with the highest multiplier is not a hard fast rule of thumb that you should follow.

Hey guys, 2 questions:

When installing XP, do i need to press F6 to install the drivers for my WD Raptor 150 Hard Drive?

and, when Installing the chipset drivers for this Mobo, do I need to install the SW IDE driver ( i think thats whats its called!)??

Thanks.

Oh, I got my Ultra 120 Extreme and 120mm case fans today!!! cant wait for Friday!!!!

No F6 is if you are installing raid drivers.

Install the SW IDE driver only if you have ide drives (like you dvd for example). If you are all sata then you are fine without it.

Finally got some time to install my new toy. Seeing as anandtech got 3.96 ghz with the thermalright ultra 120 extreme on an evga 680i board with an X6800 using a much lower CFM fan (I'll be using the Silverstone FM121 in the pic, 110 CFM ), I am hopeful of reaching a similar stable OC with my X6800.

Ok, cool, Im not using RAID or any IDE drives. On your advice to speed up boot times, i bought a SATA DVD burner and ditched my old one.

Speaking of booting, my setup seems to take forever to boot into windows. IDE is disabled in BIOS. I ran BootVis, oddly i got an error in bootvis (didnt catch it) after the first reboot so I couldn't see the boot times for anything. I'm thinking maybe its something with the ATI drivers?? which are getting uninstalled since I just got my 8800 today.....any thoughts??

Oh and what I usually do is install XP, test everything and get everything stable if I'm OCing, then reinstall XP fresh so Im thinking it might magically disappear?

Another thing that doesn't really annoy me as much I don't understand it is that when I turn on the power, I see the fans spinning but I don't hear the "Beep" for like 5-10 seconds, then it starts booting. After I get everything set up and reinstall XP, I usually disconnect the speaker anyway but would like to see in anyone else here has encountered this and has any fixes.........

I've read almost every post of this 147 page thread, as I wait for my new rig on order in my sig. I chose this system specifically because of Robilar and all of the information he has posted in conjunction with reviews from various overclocker sites, anandtech, tomshardware, newegg for user reviews etc. My specific thanks to Robilar for making everything easier to deal with - the wait times are killer here so I have to be sure of what I order ahead of time and make sure theres no problems, low chance for DOA, no compatibility issues etc.

Everything is ordered and in Canada that takes forever to come in, and I just had news that Bigfootcomputers doesn't have any swiftech mosfet heatsinks in for at least 3 weeks. I am stumped as to what to get for an alternative in Canada.

Bfc may have some thermalright HR-09's in stock, but I do not know if they will fit under my Zalman 9500AT. It is very hard to get any kind of after-market cooling (Vancouver Island here), and I need an alternative to the swiftech heatsinks Robilar mentioned in his OP.

Anyone have suggestions of what will fit and where I can get it within 2 weeks here in Canada?


HR-09U
- Dimension : L84 x W17 x H48
- Weigh t: 90g

HR-09S
- Dimension : L84 x W32.3 x H48
- Weight : 90g (heatsink only)

They are listed as compatible with the p5n32-e sli plus, 2 pieces for top and side, but that doesn't include the Zalman 9500 AT scrunching everything up. Can anyone with a Zalman fan (I believe the 9700 is a bit larger then the 9500 so it would be just as good an estimate), measure their clearance and dimensions to see if that would fit? I assume 48H means 48mm high which seems small and might fit? If they do fit would it be best to get the slanted or upright?

I can't measure it myself because I am already waiting 4 weeks for my rig from atic.ca (love the prices there - not so hot on service, or product lines carried though), and so I need to get a set of coolers for those VRMs as I don't want to wait another 4 weeks just to get some coolers in so I can even see if my motherboard/system components are going to be fully functional or DOA and RMA them lol.

Thanks everyone, I've been keeping notes on all the people with good contributions and what to do with my setup!

Do you remember back when you had the Zalman installed, if there was 5cm of clearance under the upper board fins? It seems like the ones on the side won't collide, but perhaps the ones on top would.

Can I run the VRMs naked and still overclock a little until I can get some swiftech VRMs? (ETA 4 weeks). Can I use any kind of ramsinks for VGA cards?

E.g. Could I use these: http://www.bigfootcomputers.com/Merc...Category_Code=

Or these:
http://www.bigfootcomputers.com/Merc...Category_Code=

Also, are there 8 mosfets to cool in total, or 16? e.g. are the swiftech coolers covering 2 mosfets per heatsink? So if the above ramsinks would work, I'd need 16 of them?

Thanks for everything, looking forward to putting this together. BF2 is suffering on my current rig.
