Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 211

post #2101 of 5659
Thanks for your help Alexis and Litlratt

Something weird is happening though.

I tried them numbers you put Alex (not the RAM though) and it didn't post at 2.8 (thats only 400FSB, 1600QDR) I had my RAM running linked 1:1 with it, so it should have done 800mhz right....which isnt too hard on stock volts of 2.0 considering it is pc6400 (not got my PC8000 yet)

But it didn't post. So i went back in and put my RAM on 400MHZ and upped the SB to 1.6 and it has posted.......i have no idea what was holding it back. Will do some more testing. Rep + to both of you

And Litleratt, yes my other problem was that when i tried to OC my pc (even to 2.0Gz) it wouldn't post...even at 1.35Vcore

Any ideas what was wrong?

EDIT: Done a little bit more, going to ORTHOS test it in a bit.



Were can i find my NB/SB temps?

Thanks for the support so far, always appreciated

And yes i think the mobo was trying to run my RAM at the same frequency as the QDR (i.e 1600mhz!) so i will just try and run 1:1 manually

1:1 isn't all it's cracked up to be imho.
1.6 is comparably high on the sb. No sensor on the board for the chipsets tiao but the mb sensor is close to the nb afaik. Do the finger test on the sb.

Well with my other boards i have never had to worry about chipset temps so i never bothered learning which was which.

The long heatsink was fine. Was pretty warm but nothing to worry about

The square heatsink practically melted my finger. As in it was that hot i'm mot probably going to get a blister lol

Something tells me that isn't good! NB is at 1.35V (1.2 is stock) and my SB is at 1.6V (1.5 is stock)

So temps shouldn't really be a problem

The chipsets run hot on this board even at stock.

Solution: active cooling

You're useing Vista like me, Everest screws up from time to time and so does SpeedFan when it comes to voltages. When in doubt, go by the built in volt monitor in the BIOS.

You need to manually enter the appropriate voltages for pretty much everything if you want to run as high as 400FSB.

You shouldn't need to raise the SouthBridge any higher than 1.6v, though your NorthBridge is going to need 1.55v to run stable at 400FSB. It's also possible that you may need even more than 1.45v CPU vCore aswell, though be sure not to go any higher than 1.55v on air cooling.

Not enough vCore in my opinion, shoot for 1.45v or 1.5v, then work backwards in an effort to reduce temperatures.

Word, to be honest.

I wouldn't trust myself to take off the heatsinks and replace ti with active cooling. I would kill the board Also my TTBT would get in the way i think.

Also Tactical, everything seems fine. It is 30 minutes stable @ 3.2 now with my SB at 1.6 and my NB at 1.35

I honestly have no idea what the problem was. I think it was the RAM.

And i'm only at 1.36 Vcore, the dude i bought this off got it up to 3.4 stable on 1.36Vcore so i'm pretty much nearly there a swell.

Just hope the board doesn't burn up and die lol



HT - 1.2V
NB - 1.35V
SB - 1.60V
CPU VVT - 1.55V (don't even know what it does)

VTT relates to the input voltage of the system bus, otherwise refered to as the FSB termination voltage. This is simply the voltage the FSB runs on. Logical levels of the FSB are consistant with this voltage, or in other words, higher VTT can assist in attaining higher clock speeds without impacting temperatures.

Ahh right, nice to know.

Well then i don't have to worry that i maxed it out

I just got done removing the heatpipes on the board and installed the MC21 Mosfet sinks, in the process I decided to install either the ICEBERQ or the ICEBERQ 4 on the southbridge and it simply didn't work without taking a chance on breaking something. the ICEBERQ 4 was just too big, the other one was nearly impossible to line up the holes because the BIOS battery was in the way.

Maybe someone else got it to work but I'm pretty sure they didn't have fun doing so. I should start looking for something else for the southbridge. I'm open for suggestions, in case anyone's wondering, I will be using the middle PCI slot for a creative XtremeMusic, so I think I should be considering clearance issues.
