Here is how I would go about reinstalling video drivers in Vista:

Download the latest driver version (WHQL 169.25). Navigate to windows\\system32\\drivers, and note the date on file nvlddmkm.sys, then open Device Manager. Right-click on your display adapter and choose "uninstall". Select "delete files" when prompted, and restart when prompted into SAFE MODE. Allow safe mode to install the default VGA driver. Open an explorer window (WINDOWS+E), hold ALT and navigate to TOOLS>FOLDER OPTIONS. Force Windows to show you hidden and protected files. Navigate back to windows\\system32\\drivers and delete all the nv*.* files that have the same date as nvlddmkm.sys. Repeat for windows\\system32 (and for windows\\syswow64 in x64). Restart into regular mode and reinstall 169.25.

Hi guys! Just got my E6750 up to 3300 mhz wothout any problems. RAM is still only at 5-5-5-15 2t, but that isn't my main concern. 1,3 volt cpu and 1,6v NB and rock solid so far. Temps are fine, 50c under full load. Tried 3,6 ghz at 1,57 volt CPU but only post and fails to load XP. Think I am going to try and push it to 3,5 but then I will need to up the voltage so that I think temps will be a concern.

Hi, Nicoloco. Your vNB looks high. Is there any reason you're running 1.6? In the most extreme case, I was running at 1.45 on my board. That was with aftermarket cooling and when I was trying to push FSB past 450. Take a look at sigged 3.82 on an E6750. It only needed 1.45v.

Hi,
video issues might be related to your NB/HT settings - what voltages do you set in the Tweaker?
Another thing: I've seen slow deterioation of the chipset (NB-?) while OC'ing for long time on my P5W DH with E6600. It'll gradually refuse to work at 3.6, then 3.5, then 3.45... Last point was 3.42... Physics at work

Excellent Thread!

Although I haven't read the entire thread (over 400 pages!) I've gotten a good jist of overclocking my Q6600 on the P5n32-E SLI motherboard. I have a couple quick questions. First, here are my current settings.

FYI...using 1203 beta bios

I've disabled everything according to Robilar's Post.
FSB @ 1333
Mem @ 800
Mem Voltage = 2.1v
1.2v HT = 1.3v
NB Core = 1.4v
SB Core = 1.5v
CPU VTT = 1.55v
Mem @ 4/4/4/12 2T entered manually...but this is stock settings for my ram
CPU multi @ 9

All my other stats are in my sig.
Also..scored 13,596 3dMarks

I'm happy with this setup...I dont want to overdo it...but I am curious if I should try upping the Ram Speed? I have it on unlinked...therefore I did not change the memory speed. It took about 25 different tests to get to 3.0ghz...it actually ended up being the 1203 beta bios that worked...first try actually. Computer has been stable and temps are good. Any recommendations on the memory?

Thanks,

Brian

Hey Karzy,

What Bios are you running? I bought my p5n32-e sli a few weeks ago...came with 1205 bios....i couldn't get it past 2.7ghz. Then I tried 1302 beta...no change....I then tried the 1203 beta bios (the one most people will recommend here) and it hit 3.0ghz first try.

Thread Starter 
Are you actively cooling your northbridge and southbridge? As I have stated many times in this thread since creating it, no active cooling means poor overclocks. To get top clocks with a quad (which is admittedly limited) the nb voltage needs to be higher and both chipsets need active coolers.
