Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 463

post #4621 of 5659
I read the post on how to overclock a Q6600 CPU. I have one with a Zalman heat sink on a Asus Striker Extreme motherboard and followed your instructions and was not able to use the cpu mutiplier. The only way I could overclock this cpu was to use the A.I. overclock in the bios by 5, 10 ,15 and 20%. I have read other articals where people have overclocked there Q6600 to 3.2Ghz. The best I can get at 20% is 2.89Ghz and its not stable. If I overclock this way I can't set any other values other that voltages and if i try to it just will not reboot. It also changes the latency settings for my ram to 6-5-6-24 instead of 4-4-4-12 and this way also overclocks my FBS and ram speeds.

Please Help!!!

Try losing the ram timings like so? 5-5-5-15 tRC30 2t in the bios, hit delete key apon startup to enter bios. see if that helps

I can't change the ram timing when I overclock. I have to set everything to auto or it will not boot. Now if I don't overclock I can set the ram timings and I don't have any problems.

My guess maybe raise voltages little by little. with 5-5-5-15 2t trc30.

I could not boot up to 3.7 today until i raised my cpu voltage to 1.5v BUT thats my p4 and p5n32-e sli.

sorry i could not help anymore.

also fill out your system specs with bios version ect from user control panel, others might be able to help you with all the info.

Yes you can. Or else Thermalright would have to remove the board from the compatibility list.

But to be honest, it's a tight squeeze. The outer fin is kinda in the way of the atx connector... but you can always bend it a little and it'll clear.

Hi guys,
Having a few problems overclocking a q6600 chip on my P5N32-E Sli mobo. It seems i can get the FSB up to about 1255MHz but any more than that and it fails to post. Ive unlinked the memory (its set to ~800 MHz), and disabled the options as asked in the general overclocking guide at the start of this thread.

System info thus:
Q6600 (G0 stepping)
P5N32-E Sli
Generic (novatech) 4gb DDR2800 RAM
is there anything else u need to kno??

Ive never played with timing on RAM before so i've stayed away from that as i dont want to do anything silly. Also havent updated the Bios at all, its how it came out the box (not sure how to checkwhich version it is - however must be higher than 1002 as the linkboost option is not there).

Any suggestions? Im fairly new to overclocking so its quite possible there is a very simple solution as ive done something retarded. Thanks (pre-emptively)

Yappmeister, fill in your full specs HERE and tell us what your voltages are in BIOS. What do you have the RAM set to for speed, timings, and voltage? Can you link us to the specs page of the exact RAM you have? Is it 2x2GB or 4x1?
