So i'm new to this board (posting at least), but i've been reading for quite some time. I have a few questions for those with the q6600 and the p5n32-e sli board.

I am able to get 3.2ghz with perfect stability on my board and decent temperatures, but i'm seeing some people with 3.6 on the p5n32-e with a q6600. I have read that there are not only some bad FSB holes on this board, but that it simply cannot go beyond a certain point due to it's design, and requires modding. I see some people (for example, burning-skies) who have accomplished 3.6, and i'm wondering if you modded your board?

All i've done so far is pencil mod to fix vdroop, but i'm a bit iffy on taking a soldering iron to my board and was wondering if I could get some advice from those who have done it before on this board or if someone had tricks to hitting 3.6 without modding.

Just to give an overview of what I have:

q6600 g0 @ 3.2
p5n32-e sli (spirit II's on north and south bus, and pencil modded)
4gb corsair pc8500 1066 (running at 800mhz, just to simplify overclocking glitches)
2 8600 GTS's in SLI
750w PSU

I honestly forget the name of the HS/FAN on my CPU, but it's working well, and my case has plently of air flow so everything is running cool. I ran prime 95 on all 4 cores for a little under 24 hours and coretemp showed the hottest core at around 59c, no errors at all, so i'm sure I could go higher?

Thanks for any help.
3.6 on a Q6600 is only 400mhz FSB x 9 multi....I was running at 440 mhz FSB on a e6600 under manageable temps and these were the only mods to the board that I did...I didn't even pencil-mod it.









A Q6600 howeverl will require different kinds of volts...I'm not sure about it, but this board hitting 400+ FSB is easy imo.

I flashed the MB to the lastest Bios with USB but for some reasons the MB won't boot up after updating the Bios. There is power on the MB and rams but it just won't boot up. I also reset the bios with the jumper and it still won't work. Anyone have any ideas whats wrong. Thanks.

Thank underdog.

However, i've read this board only has trouble with quads. Everthing else seems to overclock fine, but to achieve more than around 3.2-3.3 i've read you have to mod the board (only for quads). I was hoping that someone who has done this could tell me how difficult it was, if it's worth it, etc etc.

And @ cdxsuprace. Take everything off your motherboard except a single stick of RAM, and you're video card. Remove the CMOS battery and cmos jumper then wait about 5-10 minutes. Put the CMOS/jumper back in and boot up, set you're bios the way you want it and put all you're stuff back in. Should be fine. I had the same problem when I updated to the latest about a week ago.

First off, what makes him/you believe he's having overheating issues? Is the bios reporting this, realtemp? I would say you are moving in the right direction with reseating the HS/FAN but make sure you clean off all existing thermal paste from both before reapplying. You may also want to check the case fans, make sure they are seated correctly/facing the right way so that warm air is being filtered out opposite the direction cold air is being filtered in.

If you are judging overheating by the temps on the NB/SB you might want to invest in after market cooling on those.

And as for the core 2 cooler test, as long as it's socket 775 it will fit socket 775, it's just a matter of how well will it cool the processor.

hi fuzion2k3

the motherboard temp is ok it's just the cpu thats hot, i have the pc now the HS was a little loose the fan for the HS was facing to the front of the case that now facing to the back of the case, the to back case fans are ok thay are facing the right way but the 3 front fans were also blowing air out, thay are now now blowing air into the case, the temps for the core 2 extreme QX6800 has come down now from around 70c to nearly hitting 80c to around 55c to 60c i still think that to hi what do you think.
all temps were in windows and i used CoreTemp to get the readings, also all speed are at stock speeds
