Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 282

post #2811 of 5659
I originally bought a Zalman 9700, but it performed no better than my Coolermaster Aquagate 120, so I became annoyed & decided to get the Rolls Royce of air coolers while I was still in the RMA window...

The Tuniq 120 has lowered my temperatures about 5© on average idle/load. Granted, the mounting bracket was much worse-off than the Zalman, and I had to lap it (my first go at it, so I lapped my CPU as well)...

Sadly, the Evercool SB HSF I bought didn't fit. In an attempt to mod it, I destroyed it. That's USD$8 down the tube, so I consider the day a net gain.

Abstract:


Outside the box:


I decided to add a Silverstone for some of that 110CFM action:


Mounted:

So you mean the Blitz and the EVGA are the ones that will be similar right?
I haven't heard about any SB's out there being any better than what we get on the P5N32-E SLI but also it seems most boards will come close or basically match it's performance. This makes me feel that I only need to make sure the board I am switching to isn't a "bad one" and neither the EVGA or the Blitz seem to be... just let me know if you agree with the way I understand the SB situation out there to be if you would... just for peace of mind.

Wow Dostoy! Nice setup bro!!!

How did you break the SB cooler? just get an other one... I found I had to snip the white slot's latch a bit on top of having to push some of the little copper fins down... the fins bent all the way down easily and while not as neat of a job as cutting them would look like it is much safer and easy to simply press them down.... (bend then in half first with little pliers)

Also, is the the NB's cooler you put on the SB... I mean it has to be from the picture... if you can get some sort of airflow through those fins you should be good to go... and I have an idea that can help you recycle the Evercool to get something out of the purchase! The Evercool's fan is a great little 4000rpm fan... get a bit of double sided foam tape... there is one that can take heat... just spend a bit looking for something that will be strong and won't melt off with a bit of heat... then slap that sucker on the side of the HS so the air flows across the HS through it's fins... hope it fits... that little fan is real strong and while said setup didn't work for my NB all to well it should sufice for the SB

Nice setup!

I really appreciate that. Thanks for the compliment.

I broke the Evercool because the mounting bracket was too wide. If you can imagine it's a wide v-shape, I tried to bend it into more of a "V" to narrow the width of the bracket. In so doing, it snapped.

I can't fit my second Tt Spirit2 on there because of the gynamasorous-rex (HR-03+), but I did grind down - as you noticed - the stock NB into a nicely-lapped SB HS. I will try your suggestion with the Evercool fan (really? That tiny thing?), but I do have four Aerocool 89CFM bearing-down on the whole mobo. Maybe I leave things be for now... I dunno.

My next upper, as you suggested, is to find a place for the Tuniq fan. As I followed your suggestion to replace it with the Silverstone, it's leftover. Do you know the CFM? Last Q: I noticed your Tuniq placement has the air blowing upwards... any reason up as opposed to out the backside (hehe, hehe)...

Cheers,

I think the TT's CMF is around 70-80 so use that sucka... what case do you have? I fit mine on the window of my A900. Also in the picture you can see why I have it set up blowing upwards which is because of the 200mm blowhole on the A900.

http://www.overclock.net/gallery/sho...0/ppuser/35611

And also, on this old picture you can see how I mounted the little 40mm 4000rpm fan on the Noctua while I waited for the 60mm to arrive... if you found the foam which might be like $2 at a walgreens or Home Depot then you might be able to set it up on the SB cooler and plug that little sucker right ot the MoBo about 1 inch away from it... just a thought.

I originally posted this thread somewhere else, but I see now that it fits here. Sorry about that anyone.

I think I might have fried a RAM slot with my p5n32-sli. Anyone else have this experience? Here's my original post (which I am now going to try to close).

"I tried doing a test overclock on my system.

MB: ASUS p5n32-sli deluxe se
chip: e6600 core 2 duo
OS: Vista 64
RAM: 4G of Kingston KVR 667 1.8V

The test OC went ok. I got the northbridge to clock to 2.5. I was just testing. I reset my bios back to normal and now vista is running ungodly slow. I pulled all my ram sticks out and restarted using 1 gig. It ran fine using 1G setups on the first slot.

2G works fine when I use slots 1 and 2 regardless of which sticks I use.

When I load all 4 back in, that's when the problem hits. When I have all 4 in, even BIOS says theres only 3 gigs present, but Vista will say there's 4 (even though it's running and loading incredibly slow)

This board requires using (dimm1A + dimm2A) = (dimm1B + dimm2B) so I can't just use 3 sticks.

Did I just fry a slot? If so, will this start to affect the rest of the board?"

Was wondering if anybody has heard of this: (sorry I have a striker extreme but seems they are fairly identical) I can't seem to run my ran at voltages over 1.9v without errors in memtest. I also cant up my speed over 800 mhz at 5,5,5,15,2t without errors (I assume these are related). My fsb o.c. is rock stable although I do see some pretty wicked vdroop and also some diffrences in vcore voltage from bios to cpu-z. Any help would be hugely appreciated. One other question has anybody have any idea what the ddr2 controller ref voltage does(this is listed in overvoltage)??

Hello,
Dear oc friends, just mount a second spirit II on the Sb I came across different in rmp.
Nb TT was running 3300 rpm while the Sb was running at 5414 rpm.
Nb TT was connected to Chass_fan and the Sb to Opt_fan4.
When I put the TT Nb on the Opt_2 the TT’s ran on same rpm.
Before I change anything I have scanned the bios all fan’s at 100% cycle duty.
Little strange, but I know I have very strange P5N32-E think it’s a Dutch thing….it don’t like Dutch power wore it doesn’t like my!
Mebie is good idea to check it out what your TT spirit II is donning when you are not looking!
