Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 240

post #2391 of 5659
different chips but I agree on the voltages...

which brings me to this question I've been meaning to ask:
Our NorthBridge... how do u guys feel about 1.55V?

I am thinking that the 110 CMF Silverstone might be robbing the NB of some of the air that my puny 90mm side panel fan is feeding it but I was still amazed when I touched the top of the Noctua during small FTT's to notice it was warm!!!!!

I need to get a custom plexy panel to fit the TT's 120mm fan on the side to get more air but still... 1.55 and a lapped Noctua with a 17CMF 60mm fan gets warm?

Does this happen to your Spirits guys?

There's not much point in SLi if you're useing a top-end card and don't play above 1280x1024 resolution in my opinion. Hence why I sold my second 8800GTS.
post #2394 of 5659
i play at 1920x1200.... WoW at that resolution, 16x anisotropic, everything on full blast.... is AWESOME lol. And it's pretty smooth right now, i can't complain... and it's just on a single 8800gtx.

I already replied on MoBo's Q6600 walls thread but here is a good place to briefly talk about the X38 as I suspect it might be the a board that might pull several of us from the P5N32-E SLI and we got such a nice group going here that if Robilar and a few of the other guys jump over I will HAVE to (but I am already sold on it )

I have a 1920 x 1200 and my GTS gives me 71fps on COD2 (my ONLY game so I can't help much) SLI is a waste of money right now IMO unless you need dual GTX to play a game you adore.... I wouldn't know... but in terms of 3Dmark performance it seems it might only become a good investment if GTS and GTX dropped about $150 after 9800 release... I think $100 might be possible but not much more... and we might find that 9800's pull like 18k marks alone... so it is very hard to figure out ATM... but regardless I bet there won't be a big jump from X38 and X38 SLI boards... the jump should only be between P35/680i and X38 chipsets so if you want SLI capabilities for whatever reasons that won't make a huge difference... now if it enables you to go X38 then I think doing away with SLI is not a bad idea at all since it really isn't thaaat big of a deal like Tactical points out

I got an extra 2,304,000 pixels and 1080p capability waiting to be used so for me SLI is a must... unfortunately I will let all of you gamers down ad will only go with SLI'ed 8800 GTS 640MBs when you guys will be freaking out and talking about nothing but the 9800

lol.

I was reading more into the x38, and I read something about unlocking speed or fsb unlocking ??? did you read about that? that seems to be the only bigger issue for me right now.... after this last experience with ASUS, i wanna be extra careful about what will be the limiting factor... if i'm going to be limited, i want it to be my inability to cool, not because of a piece of hardware i spit out cash for... and especially not for a reason that shouldn't have existed in the first place... and definitely not for something that competitors recognize and are helping their customers while my brand is not helping me...

ok enough ranting... anyone know more about this "unlock speed" or whatever it is, in the x38?

I have no clue but I don't need to be sold on it... however I would love to know more about it so perhaps we should start a thread about it

I agree with you about ASUS looking the other way when EVGA helps their customers... just to clarify this board was made before Quads were mainstream (were they even out) so they didn't know about the need for the specific voltages and I guess they knew their board so well that they trimmed it all down to the minimums that would allow the crazy high 500FSB we heard about it has hit before with duos... not their "fault" per se but they are looking the other way and it looks horrible when compared to EVGA...

I doublt they will have any problems with Quads in the future

well I'm currently at 8 hours of orthos stable. Seeing my temps at 60c, 3.33ghz is the best I'm going to get . I'll update to 1203 tomorrow and see if I can do the same again with lower voltages.

Might want to re-mount your cooling. I had a terrible E6700, but I was able to get 3.5ghz easily with the board, and ended up at 3.9ghz... sold the E6700 and with the q6600 now... which our board has poor quad performance...

anyway, the feature i was referring to, is apparently called overspeed protection ... looks like it's being removed.

anyone with ideas of what that is?

I'll retry mounting again, maybe even do Audi's method.
