Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 278

post #2771 of 5659
I toned down the FSB to 1450 for 3.26 which was much more stable when I first OC'ed but that gave me only 3hs of Prime?!?!?

I went down to 950MHz on the RAM and though it seems it is still a bit more stable I haven't tested and I still crashed a few times...

on the board's defense the crashing takes place when editing with 10 layers of audio and two layers of 1080p footage while also having Sound Forge (audio) and Photoshop open, sometimes Firefox too... so I am taxing the crap out of the rig, yet crashing is unacceptable... and why the crap am I getting 3hs of Prime when I got 12 before?!?

I may have to try 900MHz and leave the voltages at what I had them for the 3.3GHz 1000MHz clock.... but if that doesn't get this thing back to stable ground I am thinking I might not be able to wait for X38's...

Have you memtested at the questionable speed and voltages for the RAM? If it's good there.........
EXTREMELY doubtful the X38 is going to offer anything for the SLIer. I ordered an EVGA T1 10 minutes ago. If I didn't need SLI I would have waited.

Hello,
Thanks for any help in advance!
I have recently purchased a P5N32-E and a Q6600 processor.
I was going to purchase the RAM below, since it is on the QAV list:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145590

Here is my general plan from my limited knowledge. Please feel free to correct me:
I would like to OC the Q6600 to 400FSB, so it would be consistant with the RAM and NB/SB. From reading this site, that sounds very feasible with an aftermarket CPU heatsink. Would you reccomend aftermarket NB/SB heatsinks too? Or will the stock suffice? I don't plan on OCing beyond 400FSB.

Next, does anyone here reccomend a somewhat-affordable PSU? I am currently deciding.

Thanks so much,
Morrow

I'd try to spend a tad more on the RAM if that one is going to limit you... and I'd also RMA the MoBo if you are still in time to do so and go with the EVGA instead

Thanks for the response!
Which RAM would you reccomend me to get, over what I linked? This was the only Corsair RAM that was on the QAV list...I think

Also, do you reccomend an aftermarket heatsink for overclocking?

Thanks!

There is still no confirmation on X38 whether it could support SLI or not. Actually I am also waiting for that. My next hope would be upcoming X48. Rumors say it will be available few weeks after X38.

Hey, im having some serious problems with what im fairly sure is either the power supply or the motherboard.

only after my computer has been on for quite some time does the screen start occasionally flashing black with greater frequence when anything video related is happening on screen. ati tool errors with the yellow artifatcts fairly quickly (within the first few minutes). as for games, they become unplayable soon after starting them for the most part.

ive tried using a diff video card and the same problem continued to occur.

when the problems are occuring alot, and i try to restart the computer using windows, it will often shut down windows completely to leave me with a black screen, (monitor on and working) computer still running but nothing actually happening.

my cpu runs cool and can do orthos for many hrs without fail.

i have gone over the connectors in the case and as far as i can tell everything is kosher, but when i turn it back on after a while of being off the problem seems to dissappear until many hrs later it starts to happen again.

bioshock plays fine for a while then will start to hitch and finally display graphical anomalies.

i havent run a full memtest battery as i doubt that could cause any/all of the above, but im about to.

im not sure if there is any way to test the motherboard for stability, but im open to suggestions.

basically has anyone else expireinced, heard of, or has any idea on how to fix these problems i would be most aprriciative.

USlatin, your link was to a PSU!

Anyway, Morrow, the QVL is just a list of what is officially tested on this board. It does not mean no other RAM will work on it. That being said, however, this board is finicky with RAM, so if you get something not on the QVL (which is HIGHLY recommended), you should ensure you can return them if they don't work. A lot of people on this board get PC2-8500 (rated to 1066), but underclock them to tighter timings. You can look at this link to understand why:
http://www.legionhardware.com/document.php?id=674&p=0

A lot of people like to get RAM with the Micron chip, which is pretty much one of two different chip mfgrs. You can either google the RAM you intent to buy, or you can just buy some Crucial (Ballistix), which are the same company as Micron.

With regards to your CPU HSF, you absolutely must install something aftermarket when you're OCing. If I were you, I would look at page one of this thread, making certain I understood it completely before planning my OC.

Cheers,

d
