And for gpu and other benchmarks get them in here.http://www.majorgeeks.com/downloads4.html
Hope it help.
Thanks for the info and links. I agree, this is an excellent forum. I have learned a lot and planing on putting it to use. I did run an 3DMark with stock mobo setting and got 10838. Not that it means anything to me but I have heard it was good. Not sure what other tools I should use for benchmarking but its a start.

Thanks again,

I would think that if you damaged it, you would have stability problems regardless of the clock.

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
Hi Ham, Welcome.
Your post says that you have an SLI Plus yet your system says you have an SLI. If you have an SLI then most, if not all, the information you need is within the first couple of posts of Robilars' thread.
Reread that, if you require additional assistance then question what it is that you do not understand.
Remember, the BIOS is your friend

Yea, I remember you mentioning this and it sounds like it could be the case, sure hope so!
But I thing I heard about chips becoming less OC'able with time...

Anyone else care to weigh in?

I would have to agree.
From my experience when you damage a component, you can never get it stable @ any clock.
Didn't mean to freak you out. But the extra cooling was well worth it.
You are lucky I fried the NB on my first board. 1.55V no fan 501FSB it just turned off and stopped working.

ok... that's two of you and I am half way about it... sure would love to hear more people agree with you guys...

side note... CravinR1 downloaded the Matrix Storage Manager for his ICH8R south bridge and got slightly faster average reads out of his RAID0's with the same drives as me... is there such a thing for the 680i? Or is that sort of thing in the WinXP RAIDTOOL Application (v6.91) "Sedona" which is in the chipset driver download found at here at Nvidia?
Any hope for a new release? that one is as old as Novemner 2006

See i told you i was a nub . My mobo is the P5N32-e sli PLUS i will edit my system now. Its just so confusing with so many variations of basically the same motherboard, some are 650 and some are 680. As i have already mentioned, i want to attempt an OC yet remain as safe as possible ( if that is at all possible) aiming for around 2800 to 2900 . that is until i gain my experience and knowledge.

One thing i forgot to mention in my previous post is once the OC is complete how do i stress test to ensure stability?

Again thanks in advance.

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)?

-Leshalles
The bios voltage readings are accurate. One thing you have to take into consideration is vdroop. This is when the voltage fluctuates under load (vcore). You can do a vdroop mod to the board so that the voltage stays constant regardless of load but thats a bit advanced.

ntune version 5.05.18 will read vcore accurately (matched to the bios).

Regardless of the number of fans in your case, the northbridge (And to a lesser degree the sb) chipsets will get very hot. Even at stock volts, both chipsets temps are affected by cpu overclocks (and if you don't have both running at 1.5V, you will be limited in your OC regardless). Active cooling is pretty much a necessity on this board.

First, I would recommend going to the 1103 bios. It is an improvement over the 1002. Second, 3.4 is a very solid oc for an E6420 but may be its ceiling depending on the stepping of the chip. All cpu's are not created equal and some overclock better than others. You may have to upp vcore to closer to 1.5 (watch your temps though)
