Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 245

post #2441 of 5659
omg you guys are nuts. NB temps are VERY VERY IMPORTANT, it controls traffic! OF COURSE it's important! And temps over 51-53C are considered already unstable temps! I try to be below 50C at all times, even during load, even during summer, etc. Just because I hate getting my games frozen in the middle of whatever it is i'm doing (head-shotting that sniper for example).

As a TEST I did, I let my rig download crap all day, the NB idles at 48C (when I get home). as a test, I opened the case, put a small fan, and watched how far I can bring those temps down with just a small fan outside of the case. And it went down to 43C from 48C with stock NB heatspreader (though i removed the previous paste and put in AS5). That to me is significant.

My best advice, emphasize the NB. It controls alot of data/traffic flow... ever had a corrupted file? Could very well be due to a overheated NB... cuz it controls files getting written to your HD as well. Memory, etc etc etc. everything.

I don't recall saying NB temperatures aren't important...

Ewwww... Is it 90% humid there all the time like it is here? I almost never overclock in the summer because of temperatures, but I got a new motherboard so I am obligated to find out what my maximum overclock is!

NB are super important and often the limiting factor to your OC... in out case MOST DEF... I am uber concerned with NB temps for that very reason, corruption, or even a horrible BSOD when I have someone watching over my shoulder, even if it doesn't corrupt anything...

I did all I could do though... Noctua is as big as I thought I could get, I lapped it (could have done a better job and intend to do perfect it... could get a slightly stronger fan, currently 17CMF... I relly needed to get the TT's 120mm on the side panel and I did today (had a 47CMF 90mm)... all I can do other than that is H2O...

this is ridiculous... it is a problem and I am sick of this board and it's NB... X, feel free to join in, I know you still got some left to be let out... heheh... I can't stand it... such an amazing board, such great Duo clocks, yet it falls face first onto a pile of :turd:... it was my hero and i was proud of it... not I want to snap it in half...

All of you with crazy OC's on Duos, please know that we understand you got it going on and all is great, but you WILL end up upgrading to 4 cores and you will NOT be future-proofed for it... so understand this and consider joining us in a group buy for X38 (likely ASUS) boards.. while I don't have a clue as to whether this might be possible I do know that I am thinking about it more and more... so keep it in mind...

USlatin, can you give me a link to the RAM set you are using? I want to buy myself a set and give it a shot.

I was exited when I saw your RAM come out... I had had HZ's for a bit then and I was in cloud nine with them, so I inmediately thought they would be even better... I think they are HZs with higher clocks... and probably not even that since I've only heard complaints about them... then again it might be due to the higher expectancies of those buying them...

The HZ's got me to 4-4-4-12-2T 1100MHz (6hs MemTest) and the faster SuperPi's came from 4-4-4-12-1T 950MHz... both with 2.3V... I unfortunately never tested actual bandwidth but I still think the second settings might have been better but just by a tad...

Don't be discouraged by the settings in my sig... that is only due to the MoBo's NB like we've been discussing... it really wimps out when you put a Quad in it... kinda like Popeye when he can't find his spinach... aghhh!!

Anywho... you had the right link... but here it is again so you don't have to worry about the possibility of getting bad memory ever again ENJOY!

Look here for some pics I took of the heat spreaders you will be getting which are newer than those in the egg's page

Run your computer with orthos for about an hour. shut it down. immediately attached the sinks while leaving the case on its side. turn it on and run orthos for another hour.
(SNIP!)
Oh. I did not know that; I thought they were supposed to be sticky off the bat. I did not receive any instructions with the heatsinks, so I guess I screwed that one up, but now I know for next time.

I have the stiker extreme & I can tell you the north bridge runs extreme hot.
I've also tested 3 x p5n32-E sli 680i boards & with a temp reader on the north bridge showing temps 76c @ 166f thats not even under full load.
I myself have removed my heatpipe setup from my striker & installed spirt II on north bridge. I've also installed a temp probe under the spirt II & record temps 62c - 72c depending on room temp & load.
I'm also overclocking E6850 @ 4.0gig & run stable under full load 100%.

I have no clue what bios. BUT, I pulled the rams out: power on, no beep. I pull the Cards out: power on, no beep. At this time, it is only the CPU connected and still no beeps. To me that is a dead mobo, isnt it?
