I did that and still not working. All I hear when I turn on the pc is a loooong beep then stop then another looooong beep. What does those beeps mean?

Ok guys its cpu upgrade time for me. I have narrowed down my options to Q6600,E8400 or E8500.

Can't go for a q9xxx cpu since it isn't supported by the p5n32 e sli mobo and I don't plan to do any mobo upgrade for a while yet.

PC is mostly used for gaming and a bit of web browsing.

I am leaning towards the e8400. Anything I need to know or consider??

First happy new year to everyone
I wish you the best for 2009!

Hi stefan9,

Few time ago hardware.fr (sorry it is in French: http://www.hardware.fr/news/10005/dx...quad-core.html) made a comparison between a quad core and a dual core (running @ the same freq of course) and they noticed that with nvidia drivers you can have up to 24% extra perf in dx10 mode when using a Quad core. In directx9 impact is smaller (~8%) since it is the API which is in charge of creating threads.
The problem is a q6600 and a e8400 are not running at the same frequency and are not using the same techno . Moreover, a dual core can be overclocked at higher level on this mobo compare to quads.
So my comment is not very helpful, is it?

Then I have a question for the community.
Did anyone try to install latest bios 1701?
I'm currently using bios 1503. Is 1701 a better choice from overclocking point of view?

Thanks

Haven't tried the 1701 yet. Waiting for feedback to see if its as big a disaster as 1601 was. Also using 1503 at the moment.

Starting about a month ago I have experienced an issue with this MB. I am using bios version 1503. Every once in awhile, 3-5 times so far, I turn the computer on and instead of the one beep bios post I get a long beep that doesn't stop until I restart the computer. Does anyone know what could be causing this? I looked up the bios beep codes but couldn't get a definite answer. Has anyone else experienced this? Could it be my PS? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

So is 1104 a bit out of date?

Oh, any one got the settings for me to hit the Golden 4GHz?
I have tryed uping the core voltage but it didn't boot so do i need to up the NB?
Thanks

Your mobo is different from ours. Your bios versions are different as well. We are using the p5n32 e sli while you are using the p5n32e sli plus.

But the setting should be fairly similar between the boards. So hopefully someone with more knowledge concerning overclocking than me can help you out.
