Well, my board was running fine for over a year now at a mild overclock. E6600 Oce'd to 3ghz and ram at 4-4-4-12 1T. No stability problems whatsover. That is until recently my rig decided to bsod every other day.

I couldn't even get to windows at stock settings, so I thought that the board was dead. At times I could get up to windows vista loading screen until it hanged, at other times, it just hangs at bios post. Finally, it came to a point when the fans could spin when I power up but it couldn't even post. So I thought that the Pn532-e really was a crap board since it couldn't even last 2 years.

....Until I decided to take out my Antec Truepower 2 550 Psu and swap it with the no name Atx psu from my other athlon box. And viola, my board came back to life!

So it turns out that my "expensive psu from a decent brand that only lived barely a year" was the main culprit for my woes. RMA'ed the bugger for an Antec Truepower Trio. And it's been working fine so far.

Now my question to all those experiencing problems is whether they bothered to check their power supply since apparently this board really hates dirty power. I think this issue was also stated in the first post as well.

Of course I'm pretty sure many are experienced enough not to overlook the psu as a possible cause for instability but I hope that this could be helpful to the rare few who overlooked something important yet seemingly insignificant.

Well Ure PSU died ?

If ure fans arnt spinning well it obviously isnt ure Motherboard playing up.

Faulty parts and Overclocking dont go well together

I'm still confused about something...the Tjunction or core temps are suppose to be 10 +/- the CPU temp...but mine are 20+...Cores go around 50 and 60...CPU go around 30... how's that?
first of all what program and which version do you use for reading cpu and cores temps?
EVEREST Ultimate Edition 4.20.1261 beta or newer beta version work well and show true value with this board.

your cpu is Q6600 with B3 Stepping :

Q6600: Tcase Max 62c, B3 Stepping, Tjunction Max 100c, Vcore Default 1.372, TDP 105w, Delta 10c

-Tcase/Tjunction-
--60--/--70--70--70--70-- Hot
--55--/--65--65--65--65-- Warm
--50--/--60--60--60--60-- Safe
--25--/--35--35--35--35-- Cool

detla for your cpu normally will be 10c +/- 3 but it can be maximum up to 25c.

Vcore: 1.400
memory: 2.100
1.2ht: 1.3
NB: 1.4
SB: 1.5
Cpu Vtt: 1.55

any ideas or suggestions?
first change your NB to 1.45 and then try more vcore and and run orthos to get stable system.Also change your ram to unlinked and reset your memory ram to default until you get stable overclock and then you can play with your ram timing for better performance.

The Thread Continues !
post #4500 of 5659
Just for my info, how much less reliable is the Striker Extreme compared to this board? I know they're about the same, but i'm worried with my choice now. I've got it OCed to 3.0, but how should i test it? I ran large fft's in prime 95 on 4 cores for an hour.

Any time i play with the NB/SB voltage, it won't post and hangs at USB_INIT. If i leave the NB/SB on auto it posts fine.
