It will be way easier than you expect. Just be sure to support the weight of that TRUE as you're handling your MB.

ok i got everything installed...2x HR-05 SFX/SLI + 2 Thermalright MOSFET coolers...

I had to turn my TRUE to face the top of the case/mobo rather than the I/O ports because i couldnt figure out a way to make everything fit otherwise...

Anyway, just tried 1600fsb for 3.6ghz....running smooth so far...going to leave it overnight, then overclock more tomorrow after work....amazing results btw as i couldnt even boot @ 3.2ghz before i removed the stock heatpipes lol.



The above screenshot is with the motherboard sitting on a box right now, not even in the case...and only 1 fan (on my TRUE) running. The CPU voltage seems to fluctuate between 1.232v-1.248v in CPU-Z under full load.

Ok, so here's the deal. Im building a computer for my brother, using my recently replaced XFX GTX260, ASUS P5N32-e SLI motherboard, and Kingston HyperX ram. The motherboard has been sitting around for about 3 weeks, but the GPU and RAM were just taken out of my setup today, so im positive they work. I put it together with an OCZ StealhXtreme 600w and an e7400 CPU, making sure of course that the P5N32 had the right bios, which it does. First startup, it boots, i go into bios to set boot priority, and restart with the vista disk in the drive. When it restarts, there is no display, so i switch DVI ports and restart again, and it starts up into the vista install. Once the first portion of the install completes, it restarted, and has had no video output since. Also, the fan on the GTX 260 will not spin. I have tested this card in another system, as well as a different gtx260 in this system. Either GTX260 will not spin up or display. I have also tryed a corsair 650w psu, instead of the stealthxtreme 600w, but with the same result. I have also tried both cards in both PCIe x16 slots. Still no display. I know the ram, CPU, GTX260, PSU, and HDD are all good, so that just leaves the motherboard, right?

My only worry is that, since it started up once (getting into the vista install), did some component (case? psu?) ruin the motherboard somehow during that period? If thats the situation, i dont want to put another board in there to get fried.

any ideas will be appreciated! Just dont tell me to clear the CMOS.

I could not find a real answer on weather the 1701 BIOS was better than the 1203 for overclocking, So i flashed to 1701 and the results were Great
Im currently running my Q6600 at 3.6 gigs stable and my 3d mark score went from 17019 to 18137

With the 1203 BIOS i was only able to get 3.3 gigs.
If only they released the 1701 BIOS 2 years ago!!!

I have the P5N32-E SLI Plus version of this board. ASUS provides a 1403 BIOS for this board, but nothing newer than that. Can anyone tell me for certain whether or not these other newer BIOS versions will work for my board as well? 1501, 1601, 1701

P5N32-E SLI is an Nvidia 680i chipset board.
P5N32-E SLI Plus is an Nvidia 650i chipset board.

The BIOS is definitely incompatible. Don't try and flash!

Thanks Ruski! I actually found a great article explaining the differences between the two chipsets.
