Please see my CPU-Z Validation.

And by the way ... thank you to all that post here, especially to Robilar.

Not really overclocking related, but this seems to be one of the most active P5N32-E threads on the internet so I thought I would post my problem here.

I just recieved my P5N32-E Sli Plus back from Asus for a BIOS issue that required an RMA and upon installing my RAM (OCZ DDR2800) I was getting errors in Prime 95. I bought another 2GB and just sent out my old sticks. Haven't run Prime95 yet but my MCP temps are ridiculously high.



After some searching around the net I also found a similar case where someone would get consistent errors with memtest and their SB temps were also off the charts. Anyone got any advice or ideas why the temperature is off the charts? My specs are below:

CASE: Antec P180B revision 1.1 (3x120mm fans -- 1 front blowing air in, two in back blowing air out)
CPU: Intel E6850 @ stock
Video card: EVGA 8800GTX
Sound card: Creative X-fi Platinum
HDD: 150GB Raptor X
PSU: Corsair 620W

Perhaps its that my 8800GTX is pretty much sitting right over the SB but the one thing that is making me doubt that the high temps is causing the memory errors is that I was able to run perfectly stable with 1 stick of RAM (also ran Orthos for about 12 hours on it without an error). I am going to run Orthos overnight tonight but I figured I would ask some people with way more knowledge on the thermal design and issues of the P5N32-E.

On another semi-related note... could the high SB temps be the cause of a huge temperature disparity when I have my side panel off? With my side panel on I get idle temps of 39C/40C but with it off it drops several degrees to between 30C/31C and 33C/34C.

check to make sure the sb voltage is at default.
check to make sure the soughbridge heat pipe heatsink is seated correctly.
I noticed that my sb bridge temp was at 47 to 52 with my stock intel heatsink cuz it blew all the hot air right back onto the board and vrm's heatfins that sit at the top of the board.

Then I installed my zalman and seen that my sb temps went down by 10c, until I raised the voltage on it for overclocking stability then its back up to 47 but thats with higher voltage that i had to apply for oc stability.

In your user control panel for the forums, enter your system specs into it plz.

I am using stock heatsink and am looking to pick up a aftermarket soon so that might be it. As far as the voltages go, I haven't really touched anything so they look to be at default:



I just got done playing about 2 hours of Team Fortress 2 and the computer is stable so I do believe that stick of RAM is dead but the MCP went up to 99C at max during that play time. I'll check out if the SB heatsink is seated on correctly and I will leave Orthos running overnight to see if I get any more errors. Thanks for the help.

I've set my fsb to 1333 and multiplier to 8x.
I reboot and what do I get?
PC freezes before POST.

What does it show me:

ASUS P5N32-E SLI ACPI BIOS Revision 1205
Main Processor : Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU @ 2,66Ghz

That's it...
I can't press delete to enter bios and reboot doesn't help.
Any idea how I can get out of this screen en back to basics ?

Realize the P5N32-E Sli Plus is a 650i and not a 680i board.

Your side panel or your card would not significantly affect your SB. A high SB temp would not affect your memory. Try your RAM in another mobo. If they work, then you have a bad board.

Ok... heres an update. After I played TF2 for 4 hours today I go to the Asus forums to browse and see if anyone is having high temperatures as well and I get a BSOD. I still have auto-restart on so I didn't get a chance to catch the message. I go to run Orthos' Large FFT test and I immediately get a rounding error not a couple seconds after I start it. This is brand new RAM that just came in earlier this week so unless it was DOA it should be working fine. Anyone have any ideas?

Going to try to run one stick again and see if Orthos gives me a rounding error.

EDIT - Ok, after a very quick run of Orthos I got no errors, need to use the computer to do some work so I will run it overnight with 1 stick in and see what happens. Another weird observation. I set my computer to turn off, went to the bathroom and came back and it was off. Went about turning it on its side to pull off the RAM and I touched the SB. It was cool, no heat at all. I touched my 8800GTX to see if that was still warm (idles at about 62C) and it was still warm. Now I'm wondering if its the sensor or something else. Either way given that this brand new RAM still throws Orthos errors I am pretty stumped as to what the problem could be.

Are your mem volts set at the brand names defaults?
I got blue screens when I first ffirst time for my ram, then rebooted into bios and loaded my memory voltages to there defaults for mine is 2.2, and everythong was ok from there
