Hey guys, great guide, I'm very happy with this mobo, got me a 3.0ghz stable OC on 1.35vcore not bad. 3.2 is stable at 1.44 i havent tried much higher, do i just need to adjust the vcore when clocking higher, or are there other voltages as well that will help with stability?
Thanks

Hey Robi, sorry if I bug, just wanted to see if you could look at my situation... you are the P5N32-E SLI guru and I have an iffy situation here so I don't want to proceed until I get your green light on the plan of action...

so when you get a chance please let me know if you think any of these are the right way to go for now... I am super strapped for cash so please keep that in mind...

a. get the proper cooling... I am looking at the setup Cogno had with one of yours and the passive cooler for the SB since I got an X-Fi

b. only get the NB cooling for now if it is 99% likely to be a NB issue

c. also get a new board

Has anyone else been having difficulty with the built in network controllers on this thing? I'm about to lose it with this build.

I can't even begin to start to overclock until I can fix these driver issues. I've been through many different driver revisions (uninstalling/reinstalling drivers) I've even gone to the point of buying a separate network card to see if I can isolate the problem. And I don't know if it's just my bad luck but even that gave me trouble and I had to uninstall it.

I remember back in the day it used to be an issue what pci slot you had your sound card in as it would cause IRQ conflicts. I've tried putting the soundcard in the top and bottom pci slots but I still get random lock ups and BSOD's. I've re-installed the
OS several times with several different hardware configurations and it seems I'm still running into the same issues.

Things will run great for a a while and then boom it all goes to hell. I've been at this for two weeks now and 'im at my wits end. This is the second board that I'm on as I had to RMA the first because it blew up on me.

And another thing about this board. I spent $400.00 on this RAM and I can't reset the defaults in bios and get back in to increase the voltage to 2.3? After spending that much on the RAM I had to go out and spend more for the cheapest module I could find in order to get back into the bios to set it to boot from the good stuff. I feel violated.

If anyone has any suggestions here I would really like to here them.

I've eliminated the CPU and RAM as potential problems. Orthos runs great and memtest runs with no errors.

Just wondering if anyone has a stable overclock of this board with a E6600 stable overclocked to 3.0GHz on stock cooling on the NB/SB but a reasonable cpu fan (Zalman 9500 series)? Want to get your settings to try them out myself. Been debating doing a bit of an overclock on mine but don't wanna max out. I have been thinking of boosting the FSB to a reasonable amount and being reasonable on the cpu, why I chose 3ghz.

Just curious what settings I would have to do to get i running at that value without kicking the heat up to o much more than it is at now


Thanks!

Hey Alex, are you still using the Jing Ting cooler for your SB right?

Have you checked your NB & SB temps with a probe?

I am getting it too... just put in an order for the Spirit II for the NB, and I have an X-Fi too so I will use your SB solution... anyone got a good deal link? I can only find it for $33 at Jab-Tech

I gotta order the mosfet coolers too, any idea about better ones or nothing fancy came up? Should I just get the good 'ol swiftechs and call it a day.. I am asking only cause I have a TT120 so there isn't a whole lot of airflow round there, but you have the same CPU cooler...

how come you never have pics in ur gallery?

spinoza:

you say you could not set BIOS to default? Also you have BSOD & random restarts?
If this is the case why do you suspect the network cards?
My advice would be to make sure that BIOS settings are all set to default, no O'Clocking options set. This way you can make sure Mobo works ok as normal. If it does not then try things like changing the sata cable for the harddrive, if you have sata setup. Also check you have uptodate BIOS. Try a different PSU if you have one, as these can cause random restarts. Try running orthos on pc for a good few hours see if it stops at all. Do a chkdsk on harddrive to make sure it not got any problems. I have also found that sometimes unseating all parts and re adding them can help, cards, power connectors etc etc. Check as well your memory as ASUS mobo dont like some memory, there is an uptodate list on asus site under drivers.
Hope this post helps you.

I took out two of the RAM sticks ad still crashed Orthos at 2min 50sec...

so I will throw those back in and wait for the cooler while I wait for ideas and suggestions...

an other idea: can I get an other set of copper swiftech ramsinks and use one on each mosfet instead? I allready have three on the NB so I'd have 11 of them... is that enough? I know it will be enough for the NB mosfets but what about when I replace the SB cooling too? Also... would those fit?

These are the best pics we have here that show the space available but I still can't tell if they would fit between those R27 thingies... I guess they wouldn't caus ethe Aluminum black ones are 6mm wide and the copper ones are 14mm... it doesn't even look like there is double the with there...
