Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 457

post #4561 of 5659
Its gonna be hard to overclock Quads on this board.

Here is why

THE GTL regulation voltage is messed up and getting 3.0ghz stable is hardly possible.

I switched from a Q6600 to a E6750 1203 bios and check this..

I have been watching this thread for a while and have benefited from everyones knowledge and just want to take a minute to thank everyone. And also request some help. I am new to overclocking and was doing well with this board until just a few days ago. I tried to install new ram and for some reason Vista will not recognize the processor or memory now. In the system information screen all I get is "not available". I cannot open up any apps. I have tried a system restore from Safe mode, reset everything to default, tried reloading from the install disc. Nothing is working. How would I be able to tell if I cooked the NB?

Do you have any way of monitoring your NB temps?? Have you tried placing the old RAM back in? Check the recommended RAM voltage and make sure its being supplied that amount.

I don't have a sensor to monitor NB temps. I have an infrared themometer I could use. I reinstalled the old ram, reset everything to default. Bios picks up the processor and ram but Vista doesn't. What would be the symptoms of a cooked NB?

Hi guys,

I'm new at overclocking and I want to safely overclock my Q660 to 3.0GHz. What settings do I use to get there? Do I only have to up my FSB?

Volts so far:
Vcore 1.35
NB 1.40
SB 1.50
Vht 1.25
Vtt 1.25

Just took that from this thread

U will have trouble getting past 3 or to 3

This is due to THE GTL regulation voltage limit for quads.

Now what bios are u using.

1203 is the best for overclocking.

Voltage wise those are fine.

Use 1203 bios and u should be fine .

Put ure FSB at 1333 keep ure ram at 800mhz.

Do that in Unlinked mode.

Disable Speedstep and CIe

Make sure u have the right ram voltage .

This board like to undervolt ram


Post again if u have any problems

Just took that from this thread
FSB: 1333
CPU vCore: 1.4v
NB: 1.4v or 1.45v
SB: 1.55v
VTT: 1.55v

If you have 4 x 1GB DIMM's, link your RAM and set it to Sync mode (1:1) with your CPU.

First thx for your fast reply. I will take a look at the speedstep and CIe. Probably I disabled it already, but for sure.

I use bios 1205, does this matter? Do I have to downgrade my bios? What would be a good voltage for my ram?

Lot of questions, I know

Volts are set. And yes I got 4GB of ram. It's 4x1GB 800MHz GeIL Black Dragon at 4.4.4.12 atm. Should I link it at 1:1, looks to me as extremly high, or am I wrong ?

Should I link or unlink, what's faster? You telling both telling something else

Err, you probably shouldn't link your ram if you want to run them at 800mhz.

Your FSB of 1333 means that your cpu is running at (1333 / 4) * 9 = 2999.25 mhz. But linking your ram means your ram will run at (1333 / 4) * 2 = 667 mhz.

Which is slower than the intended 800 mhz speed of the ram.

So unlink your ram. Theoretically, linking ram is optimal if when you are going for a FSB of 1600.
Cpu running at (1600 / 4) * 9 = 3600 mhz and ram running at (1600 / 4) * 2 = 800 mhz. And that's the sweet spot for the E6600 duo core. Don't know about the quad cores though.
