Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 43

Hello all, I've been pouring through this thread for a week now, and my newly purchased gear just arrived yesterday. After getting it all assembled and verifying that everything appears to work as advertised I started trying to apply the collected wisdom here. However, I think I must be missing some basic knowledge because it's just not working out for me.

I naturally have the P5N32-E SLI board, CPU is a E6600 2.4 GHz CPU, memory is 4x 1GB Corsair Dominator 6400, and the eVGA 8800 GTX (base GTX). For CPU cooling I got the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 with the fan to take the place of the Intel cooler. I also got the Dominator Fan to drop over the memory chips. The case is a Lian-Li with 120mm intake fan in the back and a 120mm exhaust in the front. Temperature wise things are cool.

As far as overclocking/BIOS changes, I've done the following:
For the Memory I increased the memory voltage to 2.1v and turned on the SLI-Ready Memory at 0% to get timings of 4-4-4-12-T1. So for starters, mostly all good (sound with the included board isn't working).

Ok, so here's where I'm stuck. In reading the FAQ I think I understand what's being said and the logic behind it. What I seem to be missing is how to adjust the FSB from the BIOS. I can do it from within vista using the AiBooster but its been noted elsewhere that this is probably not the way to do it. nTune seems to have some features for adjusting this, but again its been noted to primarily work on the GPU and not so well on the board. Aside from being able to adjust the speed of the CPU, I'm unclear as to the voltage changes that need to be made. I understand clocking it up needs more power but other than a lot of trial and error (which it feels like I've been on the losing side of) is there at least a good rule of thumb that I can follow (hoping some of the other E6600 owners could chime in here) to get me close so I can go from there?
for the fan, use riva tuner. and use the low level fan setting at 100%. set it to load the profile at startup.

how is the 4gb of ram doing? any problems with getting it to run. I'd recommend 2.2volts for the mem. 2.1 is for the lower corsair. 2.2 for dominator. I ran into some stability issues at 2.1

Hey does this seem right for 2 wd 36.6 raptors in raid? also will the 150gb raptors give me a performace boost over the 36 ers. Is there any spec difference aside form the larger storage space?

The fan? I'm not sure how that plays into OCing the processor at this point, like I said running nice and cool at the moment but since I'm not doing any thing that's probably why.

I'll see about pumping up the voltage on the memory though at the moment the timings on it seem more than reasonable.

The BIOS recognizes all 4 GB, Vista on the other hand only sees 3.25 GB even after forcing the PAE so the jury is still out on that.

My bad, it doesn't, i thought you were talking about the gpu fan. For my cpu fan i just set the switch to hi.

That seems about right. The primary difference with the new raptor 150's is a better platter design and 16 MB of cache (although they make the 74 GB in 16 mb and I think they had 36 gb with it as well).

I went from a 74 gb raptor to a 150 and saw no difference. My 74 gb raptors raided were faster than a single raptor x though.

in everest it says mine have 8mb cache. I really want a 16mb cache on my hd. whats the performace increase from 8mb to 16mb?

also what do you all think of this with 2 120mm fans attached to it?

Not huge but I'm fussy that way as well. Regarding the gemini, A1CON (I think thats his sig) on this forum got one recently. Check with him and see if it helps.

I think I found the answer to my own question. The issue I was having was that I was not able to adjust the FSB from the BIOS when I choose to unlink the memory bus from the FSB (all those options grey out). I instead configured it to be linked at 4:3 and was able to push the CPU up to 3.2 with some relatively minor tweaking of the vCore. The downside however is that my Memory Timings are attrocius. Everest is reporting my memory bus at 474.7 Mhz and the Timings are showing up as 5-6-6-22 2T. I think the thing I got confused on with the first post is choosing to go unlinked vs. linked. Clearly by choosing to go unlinked I was unable to do any CPU tweaking from the BIOS.

so i can post and go to windows at 1750fsb but it is extremely unstable. this is with vcore@1.46 vtt@1.55 nb@1.45 mem@2.2. Plus anything below that till 7.0x320 is unstable as well. It'll go to windows and then it'll just go to a black screen and sometimes restart or just sit there at a blank screen till you restart it. no blue screens only black. right now 7.0x320 w/ vcore @1.40 nb@1.40 sb@1.50 vtt@1.55 and mem at 2.2 is rock solid stable. cpu temps are 45c under full load. Any one have any ideas on what to do. Ideally i would like a 3.0 ghz clock speed but I'll settle for 2.8ghz. Which should be relatively easy to achieve.
