Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 328

post #3271 of 5659
These fit nicely:

I know you can't buy them from NewEgg, but there's the part number. Their tape is also really bad. Some people have used some 3M thermal tape, but I just used some Arctic Silver thermal glue. There's some pictures of the mosfet heatsinks in the first several pages of this thread, but basically just cover the ones that were underneath the stock heatsink. There's a total of eight paired mosfets.

Yes, those are my pics. The swiftech fit exactly on the mosfets (in terms of size).

Also, since adding them to my cooling array, I haven't had any instability in the stable overclocks I attained (my best to date with an orthos run with my X6800 is 3.92 Ghz)

I tried to search for them on the net.

I can only buy those heatsinks on Ebay USA, unfortunately the salesman does not accept Paypal.. doh!

i do got some standard vga heatsinks from Coolermaster, u think it would work? If not, do u have an alternative for the Swif's ?

Thanks again!

I bought my Thermalright HR-05 IFX 's and swiftech 'sinks from:

svc.com

Petrastechshop.com also has some good deals, however they didn't have the IFX.

Has anyone else had major issues with this board? I am now on my second board and am waiting on Asus slow RMA process.

After browsing this boards section on the Asus forums and the Newegg replies it seems I have twice now experienced the same issue many many others have had in that you shut down the pc and when you go to start it up again all the fans spin up but you get no light on the monitor or keyboard and you get no beeps at all even if you pull the ram.

Both times this happened I was using the bios built in over clocking, going the easy automatic route by setting the %. The first to 2.9ghz and this time at 3ghz. I am using the Zalman 8700 HSF and the Thermaltake Armor Series case with side cooling. I have been running bios version 1205 (latest) for since about a week before this last OC attempt.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133021


Am I doing something wrong or are these boards simply that finicky? I ran for months after the first RMA at stock speeds just fine and now this less then two weeks after my oc as was the case last time, all temps registered well and I passed prime tests so I am at a loss here and honestly likely wont OC again or go to another board that is built more solid.

I have worked in the business for years but am new to over clocking so ask away if you will.

Tekkah, I think your heatsinks should be fine as long as they cover the VRMs. The Swiftechs work well only because they fit perfectly. Looking around other forums, it looks like people have used a variety of different methods to cover those up. Check out this picture below from the Nvidia forums.

Jmet, it seems you might have missed Robilar's stickied first post. I do not believe anyone in these 328 pages has discussed seriously the automatic overclock settings. Generally, the words "automatic" and "overclocking" are only ever used together preceding words like, "reset CMOS", "reformat", "reinstall", and "never again".

I now see why, I guess I ASSumed that being a built in and advertised feature of the board that it would at least work. I bought a case and HSF with plenty of cooling abillity and figured that would be good enough.

Asus just informed me that they have no stock so I need to return the board for a repair which will take 10 days plus all shipping times. So I am now pondering the purchase of another brand or the same board to forgo me haviing to reinstall windows. In regards to performance and stabillity what might you suggest?

I concur, the auto overclocking in the bios is crap plain and simple. I tried it when I got the board last november and had some issues. There is a fix for whats happening but you need an older generation celeron or p4. Put it in, the system will boot, flash your bios back to one of the older series (0902 is fine). Re insert your C2D and away you go. For some reason bios updating from windows and the auto overclocking feature cause the board to stop recognizing C2D chips.
