Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 431

I doubt 1203 would work with wolfdales due to it being a old bios.

However 1302 would most probably work.

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.

I didn't expect 1203 to run the E8400 but will try before flashing to 1302 just to confirm. New CPU should arrive on Monday so will have to wait a few days yet to try. Good to know that it will run on this board with 1302 though. I'll be happy if I can get it stable at just 4gb.
I guess with this board being able to run 45nm C2D there will be more BIOS releases to cater for the new CPU's too.
I'll let you know how it all pans out.

OK, got the E8400 today, chucked it in, started system with 1203.
Detected the CPU's brand name correctly ie; E8400 @ 3000Mhz but gives message that this CPU is not recognised and a BIOS update is required to unleash it's full power.
So flashed to 1302 and ended up with same situation !!!!!
Checked in BIOS and its set to multi = 6
Changed multi to 9, reboot, same thing, check BIOS, multi = 6.
System runs OK, including Vista 64 but BIOS won't let me set CPU to stock speed let alone OC.
I'd say 1203 would have done exactly the same had I gone a bit further with it.

Dostoyevsky77, how did you get 1302 to recognise the E8400?

I believe ASUS are due to release a BIOS soon to fix this anyway but looks like gaming will be crap until they do.

Edit:
Aha, have now found I can set multi to 8. Have also got up 3.2Ghz but don't seem to be able to get higher yet. Probably just need to pump more volts to CPU. Will wait for new BIOS before trying more. Much higher temps than old CPU and on less volts ???? but seems in line with what others are reporting. (~49 celcius, idle, cores 1 & 2)
Even at 3.2 I've jumped 365 points on 3D-Mark-06 (cpu up 106 points).
I think that's pretty good for a very low OC compared against the E6600 OC'd to 3.4 from 2.4
Every boot requires 'Press F1 to continue or DEL to enter setup' though.
Hanging out for BIOS revision now.

Hello!

My first post here. Wanted to thank everyone who's contributed to this thread so far.

I recently purchased the Asus P5N32-E SLi motherboard to go in my new watercooled machine, with a Q6600 with G0 stepping. After getting all my kit in the rig and running it up for a while, I figured I'd try some overclocking.

As I'm a complete noob at this, I had no idea what to do, initially tryng to up my CPU multiplier to like x15 or something. Obviously this didn't work, but I read a few sites, and eventually figured I could set my FSB at 1333Mhz and get 3.0GHz out of my Q6600 without too much effort.

My system booted perfectly and ran fine - for about 20 mins. Then locked up and died. Turns out that yes, the NB was incredibly hot, and I had to let the system cool down for a few minutes before I could reset the OC and get it back up again.

After reading this thread and a few other sites, it seems I didn't do the proper research when it came to getting a new motherboard. Obviously this board isn't great with quads, and so I'm left with the following options:

- Get a water block for my NB and SB, and run my CPU at a stable FSB.
- Skip getting a water block, and just mod up some fans to go on the stock cooling and see if that works.
- Not bother with OCing at all,
or
-Dump the motherboard entirely and get an EVGA 680i SLi A1 for better OCing on my Quad.

My only problem with dumping the board is that I got it as a gift through my work, and don't want to seem ungrateful if I return it. I could always ebay it but I wouldn't get as much for it as if I exchanged it through work for an EVGA one. Also, I'm not even sure my work will take it back!

I'd like to hear what people think, whether I should stick with this board or change it.

Thanks!
-David

*Edit* Also, just a noobie question - Can I damage my kit by messing around with voltages, overclocking etc?

Are you planning SLI? If not then I would suggest you sell the board and get a solid Intel P35 chipset board (The Abit IP35E is fantastic and is around $100). If you intend SLI then you are correct, the asus board is great for dual cores (although apparently there are some issues with the new 45nm chips) but it is lacking with quads. The EVGA 680i would be better and you could pick one up off e-bay fairly cheap.

Marky07, set the multi to 10, save & exit. For some reason, that snapped me back to 9. I couldn't get the unknown processor message to disappear, though.

***EDIT: Chinese new year right now. They'll get cracking at BIOS revisions when it's over, I'm confident. I'm eagerly awaiting one for my Maximus, too.

Hi,

I was planning on SLi at some point in the future, yes.

I'm not sure if there's any point me overclocking at all to be quite honest. I was able to run 3dmark 06's basic (unregistered) test on my 3GHz overclock and only made up 400 3dmarks. Doesn't seem like much performance gain for all that trouble.

I might not even bother, cause it seems like my graphics card is now the bottleneck.

If you go sli, then the bottleneck will be reduced. Realistically all you need is 3 ghz on a quad to overcome that though (which is attainable on your board).
