Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 248

post #2471 of 5659
wow way to trash out Robillars P5N32-E information thread....
post #2472 of 5659
Cogno, I somewhat agree but please don't take it personal, the board IS advertised as Quad ready and it fails to be a true enthusiast board at that... also there are many developments and Robilar himself said he would be upgrading to an X38.

I am sure that although Treatment X and I both speak out about the letdowns of the boards capabilities we both feel this thread is downright spectacular as can guide you to the best possible clocks with most any CPU... with Treatment's contribution that now includes the OC'ing of the Q6600 to this boards max capabilities... I am an example of that as I merely plugged in some settings and of I was at 3.26GHz... only 0.04GHz from my current clock and possible max stable clock...

Treatment, it is quite clear how both you and I feel about the board's in-capabilities with Quads and I also understand your frustrations with ASUS which were obviously augmented by EVGA's excellent response to the very same problem. We should let it be for now and only continue to post about P5N32-E SLI info from now on so we don't get people accusing us of being haters and so we don't litter the thread so it is easier for others with other CPUs to continue using it as a meeting point.

Oh yeah, I admire the hard work (anyone who overclocks know the amount of time and dedication required to make a guide like this) that Rob, USLat, Cog, CLP, etc. who's contributed to this thread, I've read all the pages.

It's definitely the maker of the boards that's let us down, not the people who have the clocking prowess and make a guide. It is a good board, but for duals and is not as quad ready as the competitor. Prior to my acquisition of the Q6600, I was happily clocking on my E6700, only to realize the rumors were in fact true regarding Quad performance.

I'll contribute by saying, don't buy it if you're going Quad.

Edit : ****. the P5k Deluxe went up $6. I give up. Ugh, I just made the purchase of the EVGA T1, ebaying the P5N32-E once it's here... will share my findings.

Intel's current quad products, (2 dies sharing same bus) have traditionally exhibited lower clocks than their dual core counterparts. This has been known for some time.

Everyone has High expectations for X38, but how do we know exactly that these limitations will be minimized or eliminated by a chipset when it very well may be the inherent design of the processor that's responsible for reduced "clockability" of 4 cores in their current configuration.

And can someone tell me that a native quad will clock as well as a dual core chip???

An Italian group has oc'd a single core chip past 8 ghz. I've never seen a dual core chip posted at those freqs.

There will be alot of advantages to quad core processors once games/programs have been coded for them. It is here they will kill dual core processors. But will they ever overclock as well as their single or dual core counterparts??

Time and engineering will tell.

Heh, I don't take offense. As USlatin mentioned, I will likely go X38 (and start a similar thread) if it supports SLI upon release.

I am a big fan of the P5N32-E but its been out almost a year now (got mine last November). Newer boards come along all the time. I've held off on quad until recently (I have an order in for a QX6850 with a supplier here in Canada) and we'll see how it fares with my board.

I also ordered a second asus 8800gtx and the BenQ 24" LCD (the WZ model of course).

Now that I finally got my thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme laser lapped, I'm ready to get back to some serious benching.

Now if Call of Duty 4 would just come out already...

nuclearjock - Agreed. Which is why I went ahead and got the EVGA 680i, which still has SLI and gives better quad performance than ASUS... then ebay if the X38 does prove to live up to it's hype. =) VERY Nice clock on that E6850 btw.

and CoD4 is juicy as hell... i didn't think you were into that type of game Rob! lol.

Are you kidding, my sig here is "Ancient Gamer"! Look for Robilar on the unmodified maps. I'm not bad for an old guy if I do say so myself!

I think we should be able to come to the conclusion and eliminate the actual processor being at fault. A few reasons being:

1. Revised chipsets of the same 680i being able to obtain better clocks.

2. Modded motherboards with the same chipset being non-revised w/ better clocks.

3. Recently released chipsets (ex. P35) getting better clocks.

However, if you can explain how I can go from one 680i board to a "revised" 680i board and getting exponentially better overclocks, while still maintaining the processors fault. I will concede that it's the inherent design of the quad itself.

NC, I get the impression that you misunderstood his post.
I never read anything that implied that he was talking about Asus 680i shortcomings.

Hey guys i'm new to this forum and i have a question about the volts setting with Vcore. Figured this be the best place for a right answer. Does this board down the volts really low? I have mine in the bios set to 1.6 however cpuz reads its at 1.36 and everrest(or whatever its called) rates it at like 1.43. Any ideas? Which is right? board or one of these? I kinda figured it cant be the board.
