Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 169

post #1681 of 5659
Hi Guys.
Have tried to go through all the posts here but cannot seem to find if anyone has successfully managed to install DUAL 8800GTS (or GTX) with after market coolers AND with a Creative X-Fi Gamer Xtreme or equivalent.

I know the Bluegears B-Enspirer will fit when used with the Thermaltake Extreme Spirit II.

Just wondering if anyone had any success with a Creative card in an SLI set up ?


Thanks

I was just looking into that though I am not SLI'ing... it seems you either should get a different card or you might have to bend the pipe for the Jing cooler (if that sort of thing is possible without breaking it in half)... you might be ok with stock cooling in you re-set it with artic and attach some copper Ram sinks onto it like I did... but I am also in the midst of trying to figure out why I am not Orthos stable!!! so while I am guessing it is the NB cooling and not the SB you still might want to look further...I thought Alex was using one of the Jing coolers and he has an X-Fi.. but I don't think he is SLI'ed... but he might be able to shed some light as to positioning regardless... perhaps an idea about modding that Jing it necessary...

I used the stock SB heatsink by cutting off the pipe. I couldn't get a TR sli to fit even when bending it. The SB doesn't seem to get near as warm as the NB and I don't believe it should require active cooling.

For US: Our issues aren't the same, but I had to up the NB to 1.55 from 1.45 to get stable again at 3.6. All other settings the same.

I believe I answered this earlier. You will have you use the thermalright HR-05 SLI instead of the thermaltake on the southbridge to make a creative x-fi fit.

[QUOTE=M3DS;2325132]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?

Thanks for the reply M3DS. The event log has only one type of error that occurs just before I have to restart. For each type of ethernet controller (D-link and Nvidia) there is a corresponding error message. That's why I'm looking there.

I should also say that this happens sometime overnight after the machine has been powered up and used quite heavily in the hours before I go to sleep. Sometime around 4 aM or so those errors get logged and when I go to the machine at 6 am it's running and there is still activity on the hard drive.(I keep utorrent running at night). This means that everything is still running. The screen has turned itself off and as soon as I hit the keyboard or mouse the desktop shows and the it freezes.

I've been looking around at other forums and I've upgraded to the latest drivers for everything. I'm using the latest BIOS 1103.

I've gone through everything that you mentioned before. Only had the bare minimum running and it still happened. I've also had it happen at default settings in the bios (no OC'ing). I've run Orhtos stably for up to 4 hours straight and memtest for at least that time. I can't seem to isolate the issue. One thing I do know. It never happens with Ubuntu installed so I'm fairly confident it's a driver issue in Windows and not hardware related.

I couldn't get the TR HR-05 SLI to fit on mine with dual GTXs.
Maybe I wasn't holding my tongue right when bending the %$#@ out of it.

Hi.
I think Cognoscenti managed to use the TR HR-05 SLI in a SLI GTX set up, from when I went through all the posts, but it seems from her pic attached (All Credits to Cognoscenti's excellent work - they are of her old system I believe, all I have done is repost) that you could not fit a large card in the PCI slot. You can see that the default Asus sound daughter card is used rather than a PCI sound card.

utorrent running at night Turn off

Also turn off all power saving options. check the BIOS power saving options as well, as sometimes these can conflict with windows ones . check that the Network cards do not have tick in the options to turn off this device to save power.

Thats a few more i can think of for the moment. The thing i think you need to test is to leave machine on and make sure utorrent is not running, as i have had problems myself with torrent programs causing crashes.

Also check you have all Windows updates for machine as sometimes this can help sort problems. Becareful installing any "hardware" updates tho as these can cause alot of problems. sound card ones dont work well from update site i have found.

Im using the jing ting for the SB no sli.You can used in sli with shorther cards,like the 7000's series.Even you can off set the cooler but the 8800's series card's are to long.And you can use the x-fi sound card with this cooler no problems,is close to the cooler but you fine.

So I will get one of those then Alex... I am not planning on SLI'ing but I do have an X-Fi... first I will see if the problem goes away by replacing the NB cooler alone... please check out my post about instability on page 163 (or was it 164?) I need help bad and I would really appreciate your input
