Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 354

post #3531 of 5659
Well, there are many. The thing is that overclocking your CPU will give you a much better performance bump than overclocking RAM, so the general convention is to overclock your CPU first. That's assuming you want to OC your CPU in the first place.

If you haven't yet or don't intend to, then we REALLY need to take a look at what you have in that FSB/MEMORY CONFIG screen. It's why I keep asking, and I don't understand why you won't tell me... is it a secret? For starters, you should be UNLINKED at 1066 on your FSB. Leaving the RAM at 1066 should not be a problem, so make sure you're UNLINKED first. Then, you should DISABLE SLI MEMORY. Then, you should MANUALLY put in the timings into the MEMORY TIMINGS window of 5-5-5-15-2T, then finally you should put the voltage in MANUALLY to either 2.1 or 2.2 (depending on which version of Dominator 8500C5Ds you have).

The thing is, if you DO keep your FSB at stock, you're going to be at 1:2 ratio for FSB:RAM (FSB of 1066 QDR = 266, RAM of 1066 DDR = 533). That sounds like a lot (a LOT) of overhead RAM bandwidth that might be better-served with tighter timings and lower speeds. You'll look into that, of course, once you get stable. Follow the paragraph above, and if you still have problems, let me know what version of Dominators you have (it is on the side of the modules themselves, v1.x or v2.x).

Cheers,

has anyone else had problems with pci slots not working? i keep trying to use my xfi soundcard but when i plug it in, it will not boot at all! i take it out and it boots up immediately? is this common, im fairly sure my new psu has enough power pushin thru it all (i have watercooling as well) gamerxtreme 700w. so i dont know, im stuck with using the stock sound card that comes with it but i personally do not like it and i feel like i wasted my money on the x fi (when i know i didnt because sound quality is amazing! i use this as a media pc as well)

Thanks a lot !

Thats the settings I'm using but give me BSOD.
Ok I was using E6550 1333Mhz with 800mhz ram I change my CPU and ram without reinstaling Vista you think that could be the propblem?
I try all settings I almost got to windows but just freez on me or I get BOSD I try 2.1V , 2.15V Linked , Unliked, with 1333FSB I'm lost here.
I'm gone do my vista over and try again , if you have any ideas pls let me know.
I thank you for all your help.

No worries. You might have bad RAM... or you have version 1.x of the C5Ds (which require 2.2v). It's always a good idea to reinstall OS after any major hardware change, but that SHOULDN'T be the problem. Do it anyway (it doesn't hurt anything; I reinstall at least once a month). But try running memtest at 1066. If THAT fails, you have bad RAM (and we can recommend better and cheaper RAM than what you have). If it PASSES, then we need to do further troubleshooting.

Please keep your sig updated as we troubleshoot this. Put the CPU and your current FSB (even if it's stock). An out-of-date sig is worse than no sig, because advice that pertains to a 266 FSB is going to vary from advice that is relevant to 333, for example.

r3skyline:
I have not had any problems. But I've only ever used two slots: my top PCI-E and my bottom PCI. Perhaps you need to check to make certain you didn't disable something in BIOS. There might be an IRQ conflict as well, but that shouldn't prevent you from POSTing. Perhaps it has something to do with the card you're trying to install. What is it, and does it work in other slots/different systems?

USlatin: Not me. Sorry.

Mozzie: No good. Send it back. Are you still in the RETURN window (not the EXCHANGE window)? If you are, my recommendation is some Crucial Ballistix PC2-8500. If you want more opinions, get a link to your favorite eTailer that ships to SA and start a new thread here:
