Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 51

post #501 of 5659
I cut the heat tubes off and left the copper cooling fin on the northbridge one. Those regulators are very important and they get very hot!!!! On my southbridge I'm using the asus optional fan that I got off ebay, it works pretty good so I would recomend getting one or two. My northbrige is a thermaltake one and it works ok.

I already gave up on troubleshooting and rma'ed the board, wasted half my weekend screwing with the thing and got fed up.

better hope your board never dies because I highly doubt theyll warranty your board if the heatpipes are sawed off. Ill probably just get another 40mm fan for my southbridge and stick it on with some thermal tape like I did with the nb.

Well, I just finished adding another 80mm exhaust fan, installing the Thermaltake heatsink and fan to my northbridge, and lapping my Artic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro. Hopefully all of this will take care of any heat issues I had, and wish me luck on not having any more stability problems.

I will try to get some decent pictures taken of my system and upload them for you all to see. I am pretty happy with the overall look of it.

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.
If your having random reboot issues, turn off the 'reboot after error' option in your computer settings.

Right click on my computer, then properties. Then choose advanced, then startup and recover settings. Then uncheck the option that says 'automatically restart'. Thats the first part.

The second part is to wait for it to happen again. It will have blue screen with a code in the center of it. Right down this code and then let it reboot. You can also just pull up control panel, administrative tools and then event viewer and look at the error logs (there will be three to look through) and find the event of failure. If you look at the details there will be a link that sends the code to ms and returns the cause.

Its probably a memory exception. I wouldnt worry about it because of how long it takes but if your overclocking your memory back down a little.

If you running linux just look at /var/log/messages by 'cat var/log/messages | grep machine' for machine checks (memory errors).

I didn't have any coolers on the vrms for about a month without issues. I recently added the swiftech mc21 set as I plan to pick up a tower cpu cooler (the new thermalright ultra 120 extreme in conjunction with a silverstone fm121 fan, beats the tuniq hands down) when its released later this month. The tower coolers provide no airflow down onto the vrm area (like the zalman does) so I'm planning ahead.

I figure from what I've seen at the Anandtech testing on the Thermalright, that 3.9 stable on air with my x6800 should be fine (for benching purposes, not much point running it that high 24/7 for gaming). They tested the cooler with a low end fan and the silverstone is capable of 110 CFM.

http://www.anandtech.com/showdoc.aspx?i=2943&p=1


I also got the occasional random bsod and reboot (maybe once every two weeks or so. I've had about 4 so far in the last two months, once during call of duty 2 online). I figured it out though. I have my ram set at tight timings 4-4-4-8 @ 1T but left voltage on the memory set to auto. It seemed fine (other than those few crashes). I looked up my ram ratings and they are defaulted to 2.1V to run at stock and my auto memory settings for ddr voltage come out at 1.89V, meaning my memory is undervolted while at tighter timings than stock. I went in and changed memory voltage to 2.1 about a month ago and not a single crash since. Should have thought of it earlier when I saw the ram voltage running at 1.89 (I knew my ram runs from 2.1 up to 2.35 specced) but its so stable, I didn't see the bother.

Now my system also runs faster (dumb things we forget to do )

Same here. My random crashes went away as soon as i manually set my mem volts to 2.2. They recommened 2.2 for the corsair dominator ram.

Did you notice that asus removed linkboost completely from the new 1002 bios?

My OCZ is recommended at 2.1 as mentioned. What volts were you getting with your memory voltage set to auto?

Since the first boot, I manually changed the memory voltage to 2.1 volts, which is the recommended voltage from the manufacturer. I tried running at 4-4-4-12 @ 1T, but it was somewhat unstable even after bumping up voltage to 2.2V. I am now trying out 4-4-4-8 @ 2T with 2.1V, and I'll see how that holds up.

By the way, that Thermaltake northbridge cooler lowered my NB temp by almost 20C. Woot.

Glad the spirit worked for you. I had excellent results as well which is what prompted me in part to start this thread.
