i've had that too...i just reset and it seems to fix it. just make sure your comp defintiely hasnt dropped the multi for some reason. also, do you have C1E Halt State enabled in your bios? coz thats what it does, when your CPU is at minimal usage, it drops the volts/multiplier to save power. for example,if i run my quad stock with C1E enabled, when windows is not being used, it drops the multi to 6x and the voltage to like 1.18-1.20, and reports 1600mhz. then when you run a CPU-dependant app or program, shoots back up to 2400mhz/ 9x multi.

and Vista cant seem to understand i run an 8x multi. all my readings (except CPU-Z) show that im @ 4.05ghz. it thinks im running 450x9, not 450x8.

Hi everyone
I would be gratefull if you could answer some of my questions, im not an expert so any info is welcome.

My spec:
Asus P5N32-E SLI (680i), bios ver. 0802
intel C2Q6600, stock cooler
2×1GB OCZ DDR2 800MHz
Asus gf 8800 GTS 320MB
X-Fi XM

First thing is the bios
The one i have is rather old (ver. 0802) and i will probably have to upgrade it, right?
Which version of bios should i pick? Is the latest on asus website anygood?
I dont have floppy drive in my case, so what is the safest and foolproof alternative of updating bios on this mb? How do you upgrade it?

Well this is for now...when im done updating bios ill post some questions about overclocking, bios settings,...

Thx

1203 is generally considered the best version for overclocking. A couple pages ago, someone posted a link for it. It's no longer on the ASUS website because it was a beta. (I'd post a link to mine, but I'm at work).

Any method other than updating in Windows is generally considered fine. The easiest one would be to copy the .bin file to a flash drive then using the EZFlash tool in BIOS. The instructions are in your mobo manual (which can also be found on the ASUS website).

Thx for the info and link

on that link there are two versions of 1203, one is "1203" and the other is "1203 beta"....they are the same size so they are probably just named differently, right?

so this 1203 bios is 100% compatible with asus p5n32-e sli (nforce 680i sli spp)? - yeah i know i worry too much, i just dont want to use the wrong bios file

Get the 1203, and yes, 100%.

bios updated successfully

Now to overclocking
Is there any other bios setting that you guys turn on/off or change some value?...i've got things disabled/enabled like it is mentioned in the first post. any other crucial setting for better OCing?

So what is the deal with ocing a quad core, can i just increase FSB till i get it to the highest limit or do i lower multiplier?

What about ram timings, curently they are set to 5-5-5-15....its better that CAS is low as it is possible....so can i just change timings to something like 4-4-4-12 or that isnt possible?

what do you guys do first?...do you tinker with timings or go ocing first?

1. It would help us a LOT if you sigged your specs (include any OC'ing you've done so far).

2. Because OC'ing the processor gives you a better performance gain, it is generally a good idea to start with that. OC your CPU with the RAM at reference timings and at 1:1 UNLINKED (always unlinked). When you have a good CPU OC, then you begin with the RAM.

3. Pretty much everything should be DISABLED in BIOS. Keep in mind to follow the text from the first post and NOT THE PICTURES (the pictures have all the wrong settings).

1. done

2. ok....so i set ratio to 1:1 unlinked and start raising the fsb?

3. thx for the notice

ive still got intel stock cooler on cpu so i dont expect much but id still like to try to see how far can it go

PS: in my drawer there is a CPU block (for socket A, but moded fot lga775), L30 pump and extreme II radiator, but i havent got time to put this in my case....now i dont know if i should sell these things and buy a decent air cooler (thermalright ultra 120) or put it together :/......is thermalright worth it?

Thermalright U120X is exceptionally good and easy to set up.
On the other hand, should I do it again today, I'll rather use water cooling.
