hi all, i was wondering if anyone had any ideas about this, last night my water pump came disconnected, and my cpu got a little warm, cpu is still ok, it cut its self off so no damage there.
Although now i cant get it to post, I have tried a different CPU, and i have cleared cmos, and i have tried ram in all the slots and other chips too and no joy.

Basically it starts to post, reads cpu, checks ram ok, then it gets to the type of ram, and the clock speed and freezes every time, the ram is only at stock speeds as is the cpu, and i have tried a different cpu and the same problem. I cant enter setup either, it just freezes on entering setup,

Anyone got any ideas whats gone wrong???

Hi guys. This has probably been asked before but I need to ask it again.

I am planning to upgrade my cpu in July.

My choices are the e8400 or q6600. Price range is about the same .

I don't think the e8500 is worth the extra R800 for 0.16ghz

Also the mobo doesn't support the newer quads so that's a no go.

Which one would be the better option. Bare in mind this pc is mostly used for rpg gaming with the odd bit of overclocking. Some rts and fps gaming but mostly rpgs.

e8400 would be your best bet.

x2. For what you're looking at, quad won't increase performance unless you're looking to play those games while you decode video in the BG. The newer BIOSes will be much better at getting your E8400 closer to 4.0GHz than they would be at getting a Q6600 to anything even close to that (some - like Litlratt - have succeeded, but I think they sacrificed some goats to get there).

i want to get my RAM to match my FSB for my CPU. Check my specs in my signature to see what I'm running. I was able to get my ram to 1067FSB with the SLI EPP profile when i had my E6600. But now I'm try to get my new E6750 and OCZ PC8500 SLI RAM to run. What settings should everything be at?

A little update from me about my results with the latest 1404 BIOS and my Q6600. The highest I've ever been able to get on the P5N32-E with a Q6600 was 3.3Ghz under the 1203 BIOS. 1403 was also very poor at overclocking and the highest stable clock I could reach was 3.0Ghz with it.

However, the newer 1404 BIOS shows a little improvement as I'm now stable at 3.2Ghz. I can't be bothered to flash the board back to 1203 as there's only 100Mhz difference and the board now has 45nm compatibility should I decide to sell it on.

*A minor point to bear in mind, if you flash to the 1404 BIOS you will need to reset the CMOS once straight afterwards.
