Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 366

@Warpony
Q1-1.5(10 minutes ago 1.4) should only make it run hotter than necessary.
Q2-I've seen so many different ones for what I thought were different reasons, that I don't know if there is a pattern or not.

Dunno why i changed that to 1.5. I had some motive for it 10 mins ago, now i can't remember

Thanks for answers, i guess i'll go on tuning this up and down until it works. Gaaaah

Hi again. I think your NB and SB might be a little high for stock cooling. At 1.45, my teeny ThermalTake Spirit II is too hot to touch (mobo temps get to high thirties under load). And I've never had the guts to throw 1.6v at the SB. I've never had any problems at 1.5; I was at 1.55 when I had room for a Spirit II on the SB, but I saw no difference in lowering it. I have the stock NB cooler on the SB (lapped and with AS5; see my gallery), and even that gets very hot to touch at 1.5.

Just my two cents for the morning.

I looked some at the alternatives for NB cooling and the only thing that sounds resonable is adding a 40mm fan to it. (Rather not start cutting copperwires). Question is just how to secure it... Using screws and jam em between the fins sounds like a fairly unstable construction, eventho it's the best one i can think off atm.

For the clocks you're attempting
1.2=1.3
nb=1.4
sb=1.5
vtt=1.55
Those should be enough. Rig a 120 if you can. I've always liked window fans in the side of the case for getting air on the mobo.
Try mem at 1:1 unlinked for now.

That would mean getting a metalsaw and opening up the side, dunno if i wanna go that far Shouldnt i be able to get sustainable temps on the NB anyway? If that means adding a 40mm fan ontop of it i'd rather do that somehow then modifying my beautiful chassi

k, i'll try lowering the nb and sb some and see if stability improves (if the comp has crashed when i get home)
post #3657 of 5659
Got home and Prime95 had an error at one of core after 2.5h of full load (instead of the 2-3 mins it lasted earlier)...

So it feels like it's getting better atleast!

Still gonna get some NB cooling, just dunno how to fasten a 40mm to the NB an SB yet. (glue, screws, something else? )
post #3658 of 5659
I havent kept up with this thread in a while, but my has it grown!

I previously had problems running 4 sticks of RAM (Corsair XMS2 PC6400 x1GB) and after trying everything, just gave up.

Well, I upgraded to Vista Ult 64 the other day. Upgraded to the latest beta BIOS. I decided to take another whack at 4 sticks and ran into the same problem (loads fine, but when I load up a game it crashes). I have run all sorts of memory tests and it always comes back fine. I can run the system fine with either pair of RAM in either pair of slots SEPERATELY, but not all 4 together.

I have read on other forums and learned that the memory controlled often just cant handle running 4 sticks of RAM. It was suggested to drop the RAM speed from 800 to 667, but that didnt fix the problem.

So... my question is, is there some setting that I can change to enhance the memory controllers ability to handle all 4 sticks?

Thanks again for your assistance.

What're your NB volts? I'm not sure if it has anything to do with it, but when I run 4x1, it seems more stable with 1.45v.

If you want to sig your specs, here's the link. It is helpful:

I have been reading a lot about Vista and certain games having problems with 4 dimms populated. Particularly Battlefield 2142. Once I went to 2 sticks all of my problems disappeared. There were a couple of threads with solutions I will see if I can find them if you want.
