What MOSFET coolers did you get? I know the chipset can get hot, but I didn't know the MOSFETs were something to worry about.

It works, but it might not prompt you first. I thought it was dead too, but then I noticed the file in my DL folder!

EDIT: I attached the ZIP to this in case it doesn't in fact work

I had started to say that I wasn't sure how these forums or that company's site would react to deeplinking but most have forgot to actually _type it out_ lol... either way, glad someone snagged it as a link.

I also can't vouch for whether or not it will work with trial-editions either as I have a paid version...

You can see the MCP temp. in the trial edition, but the other usual things (stock CPU speed, 12v rail, etc.) aren't accessible.

I agree that the Patriot memory is very solid, but I can't get to run at 1T CR plus it might be responsible for the aforementioned Orthos errors.

I'm always a stickler about having memory for my board that is on the QVL, which the Crucial is (and the Patriot isn't). For some reason I thought the Patriot was.

Damn...wish I had the rep. to sell my Patriot here. I won't violate theTOS and link, but if you were to look on eBay in the near future for Patriot Extreme Performance Memory, you might find it there for a good price.
Hey. The QVL doesn't mean anything. It only means the FEW kits ASUS decided to explicitly test. If you look at Patriot's website, I'm almost certain you will see that they have tested this RAM on the P5N32-E. Incidentally, I can't even get my Ballistix to run at CR1 at 800MHz. You have good timings at 800MHz. If you open up the timings, you can probably get some high clocks out of them. Is your memory PC2-6400 or 8500?

***EDIT: ArjoReich, I had to do the same thing to my GTX when I has the stock cooler. I'd attach a photo, but it was a long time ago before I had cable management, so I'm ashamed!!!

ThermalRight HR-09S (Type II) and HR-09U (Type II) MOSFET coolers
One of them has an offset, which allows it to be far enough away from your cpu cooler, although with the Ultra-120 eXtreme it was still a rather tight fit.

The MOSFETs (Metal–Oxide–Semiconductor Field-Effect Transistor) get really hot because they have a great amount of power flowing through them. To quote wikipedia (which is reasonably accurate in this case)....

Quote:
Heat production

The ever-increasing density of MOSFETs on an integrated circuit is creating problems of substantial localized heat generation that can impair circuit operation. Circuits operate slower at high temperatures, and have reduced reliability and shorter lifetimes. Heat sinks and other cooling methods are now required for many integrated circuits including microprocessors.

Power MOSFETs are at risk of thermal runaway. As their on-state resistance rises with temperature, if the load is approximately a constant-current load then the power loss rises correspondingly, generating further heat. When the heatsink is not able to keep the temperature low enough, the junction temperature may rise quickly and uncontrollably, resulting in destruction of the device.

I should add, specifically in my case, when I decided to use a tower-style cpu-cooler (ThermalRight Ultra-120 eXtreme) instead of the stock down-blowing oem heatsink-fan combo I eliminated a source of fresh-air exchange over the stock northbridge and mosfet heatsinks.

Using a fan-powered spirit extreme II over the northbridge and use of the double-piped tower-styled heatsinks over the MOSFETs bring the cooling devices on these pieces back into a fresh-air supply one way or another... ;-p

Here's a pre-upgrade picture to give you a better idea. The two top-mounted 120mm fans are blowing intake which is caught by the ultra-120's fan and pushed directly into chassis exhaust 120mm fan. The MOSFETs and Northbrige were suffering in a "dead pocket" of air.
