Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 50

post #491 of 5659
I am having a problem with random reboots during long periods of gaming. I have no idea what is causing it, but here's what I do know.

It's not the network access manager because I uninstalled the chipset drivers and reinstalled the one's from Nvidia's website like Robilar said.
It shouldn't be a heat issue, because I had my side panel off and had a large desk fan blowing right into the side, keeping things nice and cool, and it still rebooted once during gaming.
I do not think it is a problem with my RAM, as I just ran Memtest for over 9 hours and had 0 errors.
It also shouldn't be my overclock, since I ran Orthos for several hours @3.0Ghz with no errors.

So, I have no idea what the problem could be, but I would appreciate any help.

well my chipset ran extremely hot on the stock heatpipe but still would pass orthos fine at 3.6Ghz. I replaced the southbridge with the spirit II and I added a 40mm fan on the northbridge. To the touch the southbridge cooler is only slightly warm and the northbridge feels cool. Im thinking the southbridge didnt matte to the base of the cooler or its just not moving alot of heat. I now have the side of my case off and so far its running stable at 3.5Ghz for 1 1/2 hours so I think its a heat related issue. This board runs so dam hot Im considering investing in water cooling. Also I have one question about the spirit II installation, I used the long screws for installation but I noticed Rob is using the shorter top screws, does it matter which ones I use?

Is there a program that measures nb and sb temps?

How often are the reboots?

What are you running when it happens?

After installing aftermarket cooling to the NB and SB my board died and is now going RMA.

The reboots aren't very often, but tend to happen after a couple hours of playing Lord of the Rings Online. I have also experienced a couple reboots while running Orthos for about 2-3 hours.

yea something is up with my board now, I cant get the thing nearly as stable as it was wit the stock chipsets coolers. 3.5Ghz-3.6 I was 12 hours orthos stable but I now I can barely pass an hour at any of those settings. I tried remounting the spirit II and then at last resort reinstalled my stock chipset coolers but now no matter what its unstable at my previous overclocks. Im probably going to have to rma it now.

I started having crashes then sometimes the boot screen would take ages to come up and bios seemed slow.
Basically alot of strange errors started happening.
My sata completely died in the end, rendering the board virtually useless.

Have you guys though of the possibility of the need for heatsinks to replace the little heatsinks that the NB and SB were connected to? Perhaps those little power boxes, whatever their name, do get hot too... which would possibly mean bad power to the CPU... can't hurt to try... little copper RAM heatsinks or something like it should be plenty...

I still have my stock cooling but added fans and copper RAM heatsinks to them to add more surface area. Looks kinda crude, but my temps aren't too bad.

I would also like to know what is the most reliable NB SB temp monitor.

I had aluminum ramsinks on them, also I believe robilar mentioned he didnt use any with his coolers and didnt suffer any instability.
