Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 380

post #3791 of 5659
BIOS settings (.05 vdroop for CPU, and +05 for all other voltages)
vcore: 1.48
Memory: 2.125
1.2v: 1.3
Northbridge: 1.45
Southbridge: 1.55
CPU Vtt 1.55 (always set this to max, does not effect temps)

CPU voltage, speed, and memory voltage and speed should be different for you.

The FSB is in the advanced tab, set the ratio to "unlinked".

If you click the E6750 link in my signature, you'll see where I got to. 3.82 is probably a little higher than necessary, but you can easily get 3.6 or so with 450FSB, which you can probably pair at 1:1 with your RAM at 900MHz. If you can't get it that high, you'll have to dial back your FSB. I needed a lot more (0.1v) vCore to run my E6750 than others were reporting, so start higher than you expect. Even with 1.525v, I never even got close to 60(c) with my Tuniq. I did have to use CoreTemp, however. No other program gave me consistently sensible temperatures.

What temperatures did the other temp monitoring software give you?

Everest and RT's coretemp add-on both read way too cool. They read in the mid- to high-thirties on stress when ambient was probably around 26. Speedfan said most of my temperatures were well below zero. I want to believe them all, but I knew it couldn't be.

Coretemp gave me mid-fifties at load and mid-thirties idle. This made much more sense, so I accepted it as truth.

My QX6700 reports correctly both on this board and on my P5N-E SLI. And the E6750 reports correctly on the P5N-E as well. It's only E6750 + P5N32-E that is jacked.

WittleRatin has it too... I guess for selling it to someone else you might want to keep the pipes but I said to myself that if I switch to an other MoBo it would be the ABIT IP35 Pro which can OC my quad with the stock NB cooler as long as you got a fan on it... so I can sell mine with the aftrermarket cooling on it, and I needed to get a more freakin' permanent solution already!
So what did you use to cut them off? I'm so doing this now. I think i'll just buy the swiftechs anyway in case it doesn't work. I just didn't want to spend all that money on the Thermalright mosfets to get good mosfets.

I cut mine off with some wire cutters. It's like cutting through butter. It's probably a good idea NOT to pinch off the pipe at the end like I did.

If you buy the Swiftechs, you'll probably want better tape than what comes with them. Robilar seems like the only one who had any success with that stuff. There's a link in my sig for a free thermal tape sample. It's a sheet about 8.5" x 11", so it's more than plenty!

No idea what the POST LCD at the back reads, I never bothered to turn the Case around to read it lol.

I have disabeled everything in the BIOS (speedstep, C1 thing, etc etc) The only thing that is enabeled is some nVidia thing (SLi Ram is disabeled too) I have left the voltages on auto and uped fsb, lock up. Another time I upped the FSB and upped the volates to the more recommended levels as specified in this guide. Lock up. Both times had to remove BIOS battery in order to get computer to even load (which is a pain).

I havnt tried 1303 yet though, is 1305 that bad for quad cores? Or do you think that I need to dothat modification with the resistors for it to work? I really dont want to tamper with small electronics like that!

hi guys i've spend some time reading all this posts. Im trying to overclock my q6600 but i cant get it to 3 ghz the bios wont post. i dont know if is because i still have the passive cooling for the chipset or because im doing something wrong. any help that someone has with this mobo and q6600 share it with me plz. btw i have update the bios to the last version.

That nvidia gpu ex thing hindered my oc. Definetly disable it. Also there is a better way to reset the cmos. Its one of the great things about this board. If you grab your manual and look up the cmos switch it will tell you, that there is a jumper right near the front panel connects that has to be moved to enable the cmos button, thats the grayish switch right at the bottom right corner of the board that will light up when you get that jumper moved. Pressing that button once its enabled will be the same as pulling the battery. Make sure you read those portions of the manual. That switch and the lcd poster on the back panel are the main reasons that many oveclockers purchase this board vs. the p5n that the thread was intended for. I have faith even with the crappy 1305 bios you should get a decent overclock. If you want a more aggressive one you will have to try 1303 or another bios. 1305 works great up to a certain point and then you just feel like no matter what you do, you won't get any farther. As for the resistor mod, that will help you get much better OC's , but in no means is needed to get fairly good OC's out of this board.

It appears that BIOS version 1205 is not very good for OC'ng the Q6600. I am pretty peeved myself...I threw my P5N-E out the window for the P5N32-E and it shipped with BIOS 1205...Anyone, Anyone out there with 1203??? And if it only caused problems with Razor hw, why would Asus pull it completely??
I have been able to OC the Q6600 to almost 1300 FSB, but only with Vcore at auto (was showing as 1.64V in CPU-Z?? Kinda high, no??) Tomorrow have to cut the NB HS off and put on my Ex spirit II. My kingdom (okay, many kudos) for a copy of 1203 for this thing!!!!
