Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 430

post #4291 of 5659
I don't know who started the rumor that the E8400 doesn't OC well on this board, but it's not true. I dropped the sigged E8400 into my P5N32-E over the weekend for some benches and got a very comfortable 4.05GHz right off the bat.

I do not see any reason why anyone should be discouraged from considering P5N32-E with Wolfdales.

Furthermore, the latest word on Yorkfields is that this board WILL support them after a BIOS revision. Although, admittedly, there is little chance they will overclock any better than their 65nm quad brethren.

With the new Transcend Ram I got to see Windows at 3.29ghz on a Q6600 G0 stepping--this is with 1200mhz ram.

But I've also seen 40 BSODs. Throwing this motherboard out.

Dostoyevsky, you are bad for my finances. (Opens new window to Newegg to consider purchasing an 8400.)

Nice OC on the 8400!

Hi Dostoyevsky77, I've just ordered a E8400 and was wondering which BIOS revision you used to run this CPU. I'm currently using 1203 with a E6600 and P5N32E-SLI.

Thanks

Yeah. I heard 1302 was the only BIOS that works with Wolfdale, but I'm afraid I was unable to confirm this. I just flashed to 1302 regardless because I was just messing around; no time to do extensive testing.

Definitely REP+ if you can confirm Wolfdale works on 1203, which is - by far - the superior BIOS (at least for quad OCs... maybe it doesn't make a difference for C2D).
