Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 387

post #3861 of 5659
32 bit systems can only address up to 4GB of RAM as far as I know. Now if you have a video card with 512MB RAM, you can address 4GB-0.5GB=3.5GB system memory, because video memory is addressed first. So in your case, having 640MB or 1280MB (I don't know which versions you have in SLI) video ram, causes your system memory being reduced to 3456MB or 2816MB with the four 1GB module under Vista32.

thanks for that it is what i suspected i have the 640 mb versions so indeed i am using 1280 which only leaves me 2720 so in short not worth having the 4 gig

P95 after 20 minutes will show similar temperatures in the GPU's etc but the NB will rise to about 45 and the CPU to no more than 62-64.
Those temps are good too. If it was me, I would push for 3.3-3.5 If you don't have to pump your vcore too high. Nice work, keep us posted.

Why don't you update to Vista64?

I was deliberating over this lately, but I don't know whether I can use my 32-bit serial number with the 64-bit Vista install disc. I have the Business edition. Any experience regarding this?

Well i think this guide is great. I need some help. Attach is my mobo with the cooler Thermaltake V1 i havent seen that one in this post so i dont know if i made the right choice. Right now my system is running @ 3.06 ghz and the ram @ 800 mhz @ 4-4-4-12. Im trying to get a cooler for the nb and sb but im not sure if is gonna fit because of the cpu cooler. Just look at the pictures and give me your opinion.

I know everybody has the thermaltake extreme spirit but like i said before, im not sure it will fit.

It will work if you can rotate the CPU cooler 90 degrees, but I'm not familiar with that particular mounting bracket. The way it's set up now it will not fit without modding the Tt cooler (bending the fin & fan assembly forward and down, but you risk crimping the pipes which would make it useless). Hope that CPU cooler rotates, but then again it's hard to judge the distance, maybe a sideshot would be better.

I think i can rotate it the thing is that the hot air will be blowing the video card or the psu. So i dont know i think im still gonna get the thermaltake extreme spirit and then see what im gonna do with the cpu cooler.

Here's that Prime95 thing you asked me for. I passed the first set of FFT tests never exceeding 64 degrees, but when the 8k torture test started it shot up to this....



I got scared after a minute, so I stopped it.

Invest in a 3rd party CPU cooler? My motherboard and GPUs are well cooled, but the CPU doesnt look like it is. What do you think?
post #3870 of 5659
Yes, you should change the stock cooler to a more effective. It's loud anyway, isn't it?

What version of Prime95 do you use? I must have an older one, I have to open 4 windows for the 4 cores. So?
