Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 175

post #1741 of 5659
Hey everyone,

I am new to this forum.

Just out of curiosity, has any one tried the new Thermalright HR-09's?

http://www.xoxide.com/thermalright-hr-09u.html

and the other model is:

http://www.xoxide.com/thermalright-hr-09s.html

they are supposed to compatible with this board as in the FAQ (http://www.thermalright.com/a_page/m...pport_hr09.htm) it is compatible with the Striker Extreme.

My question is, are they worth the ~$20 for one, or $80 for two of them plus the accompanying HR-05's? if so, how much do they effect the board temps?

Hey USlatin,

In the future you may like to try something like this, to really stress you OC
But for 24 hours
We don't want a repeat of a corrupted OS and lost data. HEHEHhe
As you can see it also bumped my temps up by 2c over normal full load.

I have had my RAM tighter - the default this set came with was actually 5-5-5-15 (on auto) and the voltage was way too low at the start - I've had mem voltages at 2.2V but as I'm running unlinked (11:12 FSBRAM) I prefer to keep voltages at the lowest stable. I'm not as concerned with ram (am currently at 4-4-4-12/1T) - I really wanted to know what max vcore voltages others have been able to sustain without letting the magic smoke out.

As for the ES procs , I own an IT company (Microsoft Certified Partner) we used to get CPUs sent to us all the time for evaluation.
Don't be too worried about your Vcore, I have seen people running the @ 1.6V+ for months on end and they have not killed one yet.
But there has been a lot of discussion on this topic with all the C2D so just search the threads
Heres one Link

This board seems to auto set memory @ 5-5-5-15 for every set I have tried & under volt stock 1.89V just enough to run
This is the ram & timings I was talking about Link
I may have it wrong but I think this is what you are running....
You could get better timings out of them @ or under stock MHz
Just to let you know I have had this board posting and stable @ 515FSB so with the unlocked multi you could get a serous quick pc.
The NB strap kills my benchmark scores @ that speed even though i get over 9500MB\\s memory test on sandra

I've been able to hit as high as 524 FSB stable but there are better ways to get a max overclock. This board benches faster with higher multi lower FSB combinations.

Also, the ram will work in some cases when undervolted from manufacturer specs but I would not recommend it. Always manually set your ram on first boot otherwise you can sometimes get stability issues. Auto for memory as you mentioned is around 1.9. Most ram needs 2.1 to run properly.

Hi- I'm new here. Thank you very much for all the help getting started.

My question is, do I need to up BIOS settings until Everest reports desired voltage, or do I trust that the BIOS setting is more accurate than MB sensor reports? This applies to both CPU Core and VTT voltages. (It looks like tests show that neither the BIOS settings nor the sensor readings are correct.)

Here are more details on my system:
=====================================

Asus P5n32-E SLI, E6600, Bios 11.03. Vista 64 (also Win2k3 32 dual boot using EasyBCD). Coolermaster Aquagate Mini R120 liquid cpu cooler, stock passive cooling on NBC and SBC. (I also have 9 case fans running, and mounted a second 120mm fan on the inside of the Aquagate radiator.)

With the default settings, Everest 4.00.976 reports CPU Core voltage at 1.28. It looks like, from my notes, that when I set overclock to manual, the CPU core voltage defaulted to a reported 1.39v. (I am using the latest OCCT for stability testing.)

When I increment up the CPU setting from 1.40v to 1.4375 volts in the minimum steps, Everest and Probe II both report CPU core voltage at 1.38, fluctuating at times 1.36 to 1.39 volts. It doesn't show any significant change as I bump the BIOS setting.

CPU VTT reports in Everest at 1.55v, set in Bios at 1.50v. Set in Bios at 1.55v Everest and Probe II report 1.60v.

The temperatures all stay ok, about 50deg max.



=================================================

My idea is that I don't have time to mod the MB, so I will stick to stock NB and SB voltages and modest overclock. However, system is not stable at 1450 Mhz FSB, 1.4125v CPU core BIOS setting (1.38v reported by Everest). I had thought I might get to 1500 Mhz without changing NBC and SBC voltages as the board is specified to 1333 Mhz.

OCCT ran 3 hours at 1.4125v CPU and 1492 FSB before a spontaneous restart, but then later with the same settings at 1450 FSB it locked up during Windows startup.

Can the NBC and SBC voltages be increased a little bit with passive cooling (and lots of case fans)?

1.5 on SB
1.55 on CPU VTT, Robilar says this is the most important, hard to argue with him.
1.45+ on the NB
The NB gets very warm, I believe most people here have opted to go with aftermarket active cooling. Extreme Spirit II.

when I overcklock my cpu (I have 1002 bios) i need to set the vcore very high, it doesnt run stable at vcore 1,45 @3,4ghz (I have the E6420 cpu), shouldnt that be possible to run at?

I was 12hs Orthos stable... I guess re-flashing the BIOS without setting it back to stock could have done something... also I think Alex said that you need to check for stability when switching BIOS and that makes a lot more sense now... even if they say they only added compatibility with certain RAM modules... And finally I think I might have started having a thermal problem as summer set in... I built when it was still cool...

Does the video card interact with the CPU via the NB? Or does the Video card affect the NB in any way? Cause if so I also switched drivers on my GTS and I OC'ed higher...

Then finally... every time I froze up and had to power off had the chance of corrupting important OS files that may have added to the instability problems...

I ask again cause I can never get anyone to answer this question other than Charger who already weighed in on the issue... May I have permanently damaged my NB?

Hi everyone,

First of all please take it easy on me and be gentle as i admit to being a total noob with regards overclocking.

Read some very interesting posts and some exceptional replies (Robilar) and for this reason i want to try and overcome my technofear of the BIOS and attempt an overclock for the very first time.

I do not want to touch any of the voltage settings to start of with and would just like info on how to change my FSB and alter my memory from 800 to 533 in order to proceed with my overclock. I am only looking to overclock to about 2800 or 2900 as im hoping this should be a very easy thing to achieve. My CPU temp is currently running at 33 oC which i believe is very acceptable. (please correct any of statements if i am wrong)

My Board is an ASUS P5n32-E SLI PLUS, my CPU is a Core2 e6600, CPU fan is Zalman CNPS 7700 and my memory is Corsair C5 (4GB).

So armed with the information supplied above can anybody be kind enough to tell me how i would go by attempting this oveclock.

Many Many thanks in advance
