Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 303

post #3021 of 5659
Ok, I am starting to get pissed off...

Do I have a HORRIBLE NB cooler seating or f'ing what? Are my Mosfet sinks barely on? I mean ***reak!?!

3.72! I am depressed now... I will try to re-seat my NB when I switch PSUs see if that helps... also use the 3M tape on the mosfets... @^#^%&#$@!!!!

It turns out that every time I took the multiplier down a notch to test the bus stability, I was actually upping the FSB.

1500 QDR set in the bios = 375 MHz
375 * 9 = 3.375GHz

Step down the multiplier to 6 and this is what the motherboard did
2.997 GHz / 6 = 562.5 * 4 = 2250 QDR
(Note: BIOS set to 1500 QDR, but FSB running at 2250!!!!)

I tried varying clock speeds and the behavior held true.

No wonder I couldn't keep the f%&*! up with air cooling.

In any case, once I realized that 1205 was lying to me and that my settings were more of a whim than a reality, I downgraded to 1201.

I'm now running at 3.4Ghz with only a minor tweak to VTT and I'm stable enough to be logged in and typing this message. My BIOS settings now match ntune as well. While the discrepencies don't explain why I couldn't keep the thing up at x9 multiplier, it does cast some doubt on how the system clocks are getting set. I also can't argue with the fact that nothing but the BIOS has changed and I've gone from an overclockers nightmare to the beginnings of a wetdream.

Anyone who's having problems clocking under 1205 should seriously consider a downgrade.

Litlrat, thanks for your comments. They got me thinking again when I had fallen into a rut.

in any case **STAY AWAY FROM BIOS 1205**

Certain combinations work, but there's something seriously "not right" in there.

I shut Orthos down after 24 hours stable.

I might actually take the time to enjoy it for a couple of days prior to attempting to increase the oc.
@USRatin
The rest of my parts should be here tomorrow. I'll take a bunch of pix and update the thread in the case mod section.
@off chops
post your BIOS values as well as a screenie of the sensor in Everest under load. CPU=Z for cpu and mem.

Congrats jb, good job
The 1205 was reported to have only changed some usb issues from 1203. I call BS, as I tried it on 2 different occasions, and had issues clocking with it both times.

Second time around:

Mobo/Processor
Core-V: 1.30
1.2V HT-V: 1.3
NB-V: 1.4
SB-V: 1.5
CPU VTT: 1.55

3000/9=333 BUS

Ram:
Mem-V: 2.0
CL4-4-4-12-1T
(that is manuf. suggested settings)

667/2=333 BUS

Prime95: Stable at SmallFFTs/Blend for 3 hours each, Core Temps average during the stress was 54-58C (23-25C Ambient).

Question#1) Is 1:1 the most optimal divider ratio for the system in my sig?

Question #2) Also, since my ram is DDR800, isn't this slightly under-clocking the BUS speeds? Is it faster than keeping the divider at other ratio's or running a higher ram BUS speed in general (assuming I want to keep running the 333 BUS on the processor)?

I tried a few other jumps to different speeds but I could not get it to post. Maybe I should try increasing in smaller amounts. I really want to run a FSB of 400-450ish to make more use of my ram speeds.

Question #3) Does a FSB of 400-450ish mean an upgrade to NB/SB cooling for this motherboard (with a multiple of 9).

Question #4) For the P5N32-E, is it ONLY Everest Ultimate 3.80 BETA that works correctly (not a newer version? I see 4.0 on google links)?

Question #5) Besides running Prime95 for stability testing (and MEMTEST...I'm going to download and try that later) AND Core Temps. for monitoring, is there anything else that should be looked at before/after stress testing (like other temperatures on the MOBO, or anything that I am missing for a stability check)?

I think that is all for now. I will post pictures of stuff when I get Everest Ultimate.

well my Plus version is at 805.....ya guys think older versions would be better ?

this board seriously does not meet the cut , reviewed other boards and never seen a board this hot and hard to OC.

when I've got temps down to a acceptable level , the limitating factor should be the bios.

PCIE locked 100 100 100 / 200 SPP etc

vcore 1.45 ( the chip can do 545 fsb 1.4v E6550 )

voltage for ram would be 2.3 ( it does 1100 mhz 5-4-4-5 2.1v )

NB voltage tested 1.2-1.7

SB tested 1.5-1.7

1.2HT - 1.5HT

Naturally , HPET / C1E / Speedstep / VT / XD bit / etc all disabled

Now the question bugs me , it definitely isn't temps nor voltage...

the only thing I can think of is the terrible bios atm....

pardon me if I left out any values guys

1600 fsb tried but very unstable ( rams were at 800 ) 1:1 ratio unlinked ( linked WON'T POST AT ALL no matter what I set )

anything above 1600 fsb ( couldn't be bothered with this crap board to try out between 1600-1700 ) won't post

1700 and 1800 tried.

I must say even though I lapped my HR-05 / ZT Nirvana / sb heatsinks the board proved a real heat monster to run at passive , active cooling is a definite must unless you live in a really cold place.

o well , at least my CPU can do 1.0125v at 333X7 = 2.33 ( stock that is ) no diff from ambient temps and load is +3 degrees


o well , sucks that Asus and all the other hw manufacturers only care about money , never the consumers...

apparently they left off my mobo at a really crap bios revision and chose instead to focus on new mobos instead of the older ones ( not saying thats a bad thing but at least leave with a decent bios ? instead of totally forgetting about the mobo and just providing some vista drivers which most people don't need ? )

Man....

can't help feeling that P35 / X38 would be a much better choice....at least the boards I reviewed were much better ( FSB wise and heat wise )

okie I managed to get it to do 1600 fsb 800 mhz stable.....if I set it to 4:5 ratio with the rams at 1000 it immediately crashes after 5 minutes...also seems like this board doesn't like to go above 1600....

Currently testing at 3.66.
Nothing more than additional vcore.
10+ hours prime blend stable.
Will try Orthos now.
