I've been doing my first bit of overclocking and am getting to the point of nervousness about how much further i can go
asus p5ne32 sli plus with E6850, Bios 0805
zalman 9700 cpu cooler
4 x 1Gb corsair dominator 8500 memory, 5-5-5-15 2T
I've got memory linked at the moment and I've been raising the FSB. Currently I'm at
9x385 = corespeed of 3465, rated FSB of 1540
Memory DRAM Frequency 462MHz
(numbers all from cpu-z)
WHen I run prime95 my temps are not getting above 50 degrees. Thus I think I've still got a bit to play with.. but
can anyone with similar setups advise what settings they have got?
when am I likely to run into problems?
should I unlink my memory and set the memory to 920Mhz while I max out the FSB?
first read at least first page of topic.you should disable some items in bios.
change ram and memory state to unlinked
use EVEREST Ultimate Edition 4.20.1261 beta or newer beta version for checking temps and voltages.
also you can use Temp Core 0.96.1 for monitoring your cpu cores .
Also if you want to overclock with this mainboard you MUST
have active cooling on North Bridge and South Bridge and also some headsinks for MOSFETS which will be appear when you turn out those piping system from your board.
then you can easily overclock your system to 3600 MHZ with this data :
NB temp 1.45
CPU VTT 1.55
you can also reach 3645 MHZ but for more you need abit more voltage for vcore .
first do all above and then ask for more.Also I don't have any info about P5N32-e SLI PLUS
version bios.you should ask to see which bios on your mainboard is good for overclocking.
