The board is sooo finicky.

Also - it's strange that it crashed in a game and not in 3dmark. I had crashes in WOW until I got things to where they are now, I might post up my bios screens etc when I get home.
i get between 45 and 50 C. Not sure what the exact default vcore is. AI Booster says 1.44, but it also says that if I raise it to 1.45. Is there a reliable way to tell what the vcore is?

I just have the stock cooling on the NB and SB. I know it really needs more cooling, but I was thinking this cpu would OC on stock voltages as per Toms Hardware:

http://www.tomshardware.com/2007/11/...ad/page11.html

There have been a number of times where I thought my OC was stable, Orthos, 3DMark, Prime95 all ran fine, only to have it freeze when actually playing a game.

me personally, i use Everest Ultimate 4 for all my voltage readings, seems very accurate. CPU-Z is also a good one, but does have a few compatability issues with some people.

i'd go Everest, does all voltage readings, even most board readings, plus temps. can also do some benching to test memory read/write bandwidth etc. great program.

FYI: Everest 4.2 is out, and it has some great new features (including stability test logging, which I use a lot). One thing missing is the video RAM temperature, which is remedied in the 4.3 (private) beta. They sent me the file after I e-mailed support about it (which I'm sure they'd do for anyone else who asks). Both are obviously free to upgrade.

I want one of these:
http://forums.tweaktown.com/showthread.php?t=25544

If it does what it says, would I be insane to "downgrade" from four cores to two?

Consider that I am no more stable than any of you on quads at high FSB and that I have grown bored of overclocking my QX6700 (does anyone want my quad for $300 when this thing comes out?). ***EDIT: Also consider I want to get maximum potential out of what I have. I was able to do that with the E6750 (that eventually went into my wife's computer), but I REALLY want a new project... one where I can really do some RAM benches that matter. Am I insane to even consider swapping a quad for a C2D Wolfie?

Hi All,

This is my first post, been reading all 371 pages so far, and its been very informative and of great value, thank you too all those that have contributed.

Apologies for the upcoming essay...

Any who, i have had a P5N32-E motherboard for the past 2 weeks as a temporary replacement for another motherboard that died on me. I have a Zalman XT watercooling setup which currently cools the CPU and i have just added a NB Chipset waterblock (Zalman ZM-NWB1).

Now the mobo is old, second hand and i no longer have a warranty on it, so with that in mind i simply Cut the heatpipe going from the mosfets to the NB chipset and have left the existing Mosfet HeatSink in place (heh my cutting looks like dogs bollocks, but meh its free ).

Side Question: Is there any residue or liquid or what have you that normally sits inside the heatpipe that i should be weary of leaking? Doesn't seem to be so far, but i've heard of some heatpipes having either water or wax type stuff in them.

I was hoping to avoid having an additional case Fan pointing down towards the motherboard, however without a fan the motherboard temps raise to about 46 degrees under full load, is this too high (E6600 at 2.4ghz, with default 'AUTO' settings in bios for voltages)?

Note: I still have the stock heatsinks on both sets of mosfets, stock SB/HeatPipe/Mosfet cooler has not been touched

Note: Also the CPU Temp sits at 26 degrees idle, and maybe reaches 42 degrees under full load.

Not knowing where the thermal sensor is for the motherboard (i don't think it is part of the NB chipset, or i could be wrong here. If it is, then i probably just need to reseat the chipset waterblock as i'm not 100% confident it has a solid contact - seems to wobble easily), i was thinking about getting a couple mosfet waterblocks (http://ekwaterblocks.com/shop/produc...roducts_id=178) for a little piece of mind.

Any advice or help here would be much appreciated thanks.

Oh BTW i'm obtaining the temps from Everest Ultimate Edition v4.20. Just quoting the 'Motherboard' and 'CPU' temps.

Surago you make the question after you cut,the pipes?I recomend remove the whole pipes set and use any mofset coolers.Better than live the pipes like that.

Well i've just reseated the NB waterblock. Is slightly more stable, just used a couple rubber washers on the push pins. However i think its just a case of being wobbly due to the NB Chip itself not being overly large (similar to the P3).

As for the mosfet coolers, i think i'll just order a set of the EK-Mosfet ASUS 1 waterblocks (http://ekwaterblocks.com/shop/produc...roducts_id=155) and hopefully that will do the trick. Tho my next question, should i look at the standard one, or the 'Acetel' one?

Tho i really would to know what sort of Motherboard temps are acceptable. Or where the mobo thermal sensor is.

Maybe my hopes of having a fanless system might be pushing things a little too far.

Your modded mosfet coolers are fine as long as you get some air on them.Active sb cooling is recommended.
Thermal sensor is near nb.
Fanless.....I have 21 too many then.

Ack, was hoping to have no fans (if possible). So i've order a couple mosfet waterblocks.

Will need to get something for SB as well, but not sure if i can get a waterblock to fit on there until i reduce the size of the 8800GTX stock Fan/Heatsink solution.

Ack it never ends lol
