Thats good. I read your system rig specs and it listed both operating systems. If it was a dual boot the repair cd would not have worked.

I am hoping to find a board with six RAID-able SATAII ports within the ASUS line that will OC like this one. For this I am willing to spend the cost of my DS3 and an additional $100 wich I'd save on an ok RAID controller, maybe a bit more. So I am looking at the Striker Extreme and all others that are as affordable or more affordable, it kills me not to be able to get the PNG-E or the P5N32 since both boards kick arse on the OC'ing arena... but I'd rather get a better card than have to stick with my DS3 and pay for expansion cards ... Can someone guide me? I am so very lost...

The Striker Extreme and the P5N32-E are the exact same board. The SE just has an LCD post panel, an onboard power switch, a few more vregs around the cpu, and maybe another very minor difference I can't recall.

Some people have actually peeled a sticker off their P5N32-E boards to expose the Striker Extreme wording

Basically, unless you want to use the board as some sort of test bench or something, it doesn't offer enough vs. the P5N32-E to justify the price.

Also, the Striker has a different bios and doesn;t overclock anywhere near as well as the p5n32-e. Sdumper who used to be a regular here tested the striker extensively. He tried the striker with 3 different chips and couldn't hit 500FSB. You are right as well JoC, the extra price does not justify a board with more bling and less performance.

Well since this seems to be the P5n32-e sli thread i'll post here. Robilar your posts have been very informative thank you.

so according to ups my package is out for delivery. It went out at 6:30am and its 2:00pm now. so getting kinda antsy for it to be here. Basically my questions are as follows:

1. There seems to be alot of problems with this board not coming configured properly, what will i have to change in the bios for my cpu and ram to function properly. I have already D/l'd the 903 bios and it is waiting on a flash drive for when the mobo arrives. I know first thing i do before doing anything is to change the voltages and flash the bios. I also ordered some fans to put on the NB and SB. After reading your post I'm going to get those spirit II from thermaltake. So that s it for question one. Basically what settings to do when i first set it up.

2. what will be the best o/c settings for my cpu and ram. I noticed you said leave it a a 7x multi and take it to 500 fsb?

3. J/c on this one. Why do you have to disable the spread spectrum and all those other bits in the bios for a good o/c. What do they do when they are enabled?

4. Are the compatibility problems fixed with the 8800gts and the x-fi?

5. wish me luck

Here are the parts that i ordered:

ASUS P5N32-E SLI LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
Arctic Silver CMQ-22G The high-density, ceramic-based thermal compound

Soundblaster X-fi extreme gamer fatality edition
Microsoft intellimouse explorer 4.0

well there is everything what do you think?

1. Read the front page of the guide with the various items to disable in the bios.

2. With an E6300. Put vcore to 1.35 and start at 7x375. work your way up in 25 mhz increments. Eventually you will need to increase vcore to up to 1.45 (or slightly higher depends on cpu stepping). Make sure cpu vtt is maxed out at 1.55


3. Spread spectrum increases voltage to various sub-systems in the motherboard. Turn all of them off to ensure there is no interference with the oc process.

4. 0602 bios removed crackling issues some users were having with the x-fi and sli'd 8800's. One problem you will have though is that the x-fi is going to bang into your southbridge cooler (the thermaltake). Thats one of the reasons I went with the bluegears b-enspirer. This will only be an issue if you use the middle pci slot if you have a pair of 8800 cards for sli. With one gpu, you can use one of the bottom slots for the sound card. If you intend to go sli later, pick up a thermalright hr-05 sli for the southbridge as it will fit with an x-fi card (They are more expenive though)

5. I don't think you will need much luck, you are better organized than I was.
