Oh. I understand now.

No, those don't need HS. I think it would get in the way of the CPU HSF airflow.

You only need mosfet and chipset coolers. You can put heatsinks on all the extra exposed chips but that is unnecessary.

gven the history of this board and quad's, would I be better off getting an e8400 and getting it to 3.8ghz, or a q6600 G0 and getting it to hopefully 2.8-3.0ghz? I don't really want to get a new motherboard until nehalem comes out. I would try to get more out of my e6700, but my temps are already high (not a good chip 1.3250 vid). I do video encoding and want to get more performance than what I'm getting with the e6700.

I have spent three days and countless hours trying to understand what it is I will be getting into. As you can see by my specs, I am a little outdated which explains my reasoning for an upgrade. But before I do so I like to make an educated decision on my purchase. From what I can tell from my own personal needs (multi tasking using 2 monitors. one monitor is playing music videos while the other monitor is surfing the web, and in the background is p2p going on heavily. I also do allot of DVD decrypting) it looks like the P5N32-E SLI is the board I will end up with. The Asus site states that it will only support DDR2-800 but I have seen in this thread that some are using DDR2-1066, how is this possible? I will be purchasing a E8400, will this work on this board? Is there a better board out there thats equivalent to this. I am also considering the STRIKER 2 FORMULA. Any advise is always helpful. thanks. I need SLI

Zealous_dragon, this board will take the e8400. However, if you ever plan on getting a quad, then this board isn't for you. From my understanding, it doesn't to that great with the conroe quads, and won't take the new 45nm quads at all. Maybe take a look at the 780i boards, they are newer and also have sli

The P5N32-E is a good board for OVerclocking Core 2 Duos (65nm chips)

Quads not so much.

If ure purchashing the E8400 or E8500 or the new Quads DONT USE THIS board.

This board dosent support quads and Duo Overclocking wouldnt be a good option.

Rather Go for some of the P35 chips or X38 and if u have the money get the 780i.

Sorry, little confused, but greatly appreciate the reply. You stated above regarding the E8400 DON'T USE. But this chip is Core 2 Duo 3.00ghz 1333mhz 45nm. I really don't for-see getting a quad any time in the next couple of years. I was going to purchase the E6750 2.66ghz until I saw the E8400 for 50 bucks more. I had contacted ASUS for advice over the weekend for assistance in sorting out the board I needed (good lord do they have too many choices) and 3 different service techs said "stay away from the Striker 2 780i chipset". They had also stated for the money the P5N32-E was pretty much the same board as the striker 2 with a different chip-set and the Gaming title or acc. Any thoughts.

Personally i can get my B3 Q6600 to 3.0 no problem with a proper bios, have to find my limit yet (waiting for better cooling)
No doubt u will get much higher OC petencial with E8400, so if u r after best OC then go for it, if u don't wanna do much with the board (replacing chipset cooling is a must for 3.8 E8400) u can very well get the Q6600, i'd say 3.0-3.2 is quite reachable in like 80% of the cases with a proper bios.

This board is trash for Quad Cores. After 3 months of struggling with this board and just putting in new ram (Transcend Axe 1200mhz PC9200) (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820208343) I am ready to chuck this into the garbage for a EVGA 780i.

Horrible, horrible board. Super unstable. Blue screens everyday in Vista. I can get it to 3.0ghz but if it ever hits 3.3mhz with hundreds of voltage configurations (plucked from here and HardOCP)--the board just hangs on 1203 Post or BSODs in windows. I have a G0 stepping 6600. I hate this board. I'm done.

People are getting their 6600 G0 steppings to 3.8ghz with my ram and a P35 board or 3.6 with a 780i. This can't even break 3.0. Sad.
