Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 547

post #5461 of 5659
I heard some scary things about the manual update-procedure. The last time was a couple of hours ago I can tell you lol. Well, doesn't matter it works fine (for now). Overclocking yet?

Guys, can you help me out overclocking my memory on this board? Am talking about my GeIl black dragon 4x1GB. I'm planning to overclock it to 1066 on 2.1v. I heard this can be done safely, but does somebody have experience with this settings? And do I have to adjust my timing which is on 4-4-4-8 atm? The max. volts of this pair of memory is 2.4 btw.

[edit]Hmm, never mind. Just found a article about the memory set with great results. Tomorrow I will push it some levels higher

Yeah, as I mentioned in those PMs, the ASUS utility is much less stressful. I'm glad it flashed okay after all.

You are quite the story teller. That was a fun read.

Be sure to post your results here after OCing!

Well results so far...

Volts and other settings as described in the original post
Multiplier of 9
FSB of 1333
RAM timings left to auto for now
RAM mhz set to 857

I'm stable at 3.0ghz with decent temps, though Everest is still telling me my Northbridge is running at 90c and Soutbridge at 58c. That said, if I physically touch them the NB feels only slight warm, and the SB I can only touch for 10 seconds or so. Seems like Everest is getting the two mixed up? I attached a small 30mm fan to the heatsink on my NB and noticed no difference in temp at all, as far as Everest says so I'm not sure I trust it. Anyone know of another app to check these temps? I tried Speedfan but I'll be damned if I can sort out which ones are NB/SB. Some temps in speedfan show up in the negative too... one is -55c. :O

At any rate, I've tried numerous combinations of settings to get to 3.2, 3.4, 3.6 and even 3.8 but it always fails to post. This has mainly just been by raising my FSB and hoping for the best to no avail.

Any suggestions or tips on how I can get past this 3.0ghz wall would be great. I'd love to reach 3.4 at least.

What about the ASUS pc probe?
Oh, forget that. It doesn't do NB/SB temps ;-(
Just MoBo and CPU

HWMonitor shows me my NB/SB volts, I don't believe it shows me temps... not in an obvious place I've noticed anyway. I just got back from the computer shop with a small heat sink and fan, so I'm going to build myself a little southbridge cooler although I'll have to cut this heat sink down a bit. I hope that will help keep the temps down, especially if I can figure out how to get past 3.0ghz.

Still open to suggestions.

What fan and heatsink did you buy for your SB? If you attach it, make sure you remove the AI label/shield 1st and clean up the top of that stock cooling block. After doing mine, I decided to take it all apart again and lap the top of the stock heat pipe cooling block. Lapping the top of that stock block will make a few degrees difference. Lapping is not 100% necessary, but I'd say replacing the stock thermal paste on those chips should be top priority. Use thermal adhesive to attach it as long as you know you have all the future clearance you need. Most thermal adhesive is permanent.

I'm actually making a SB cooler myself from a nice little heatsink and a small fan. Not idea by any means, but it should help some anyway. I already dug that metal sticker thing off of there.... why the hell would they put that on there in the first place?

oh good the new guy has another question. There I said it for you.

I just checked something out. I have my vcore set to 1.425v in my BIOS at the moment... it was 1.45v but I just wanted to see if I could boot with it down a bit, and I can. So with it set at 1.425 in my BIOS, CPUZ is telling me from Windows that my vcore is 1.408v

I assume this is "vdroop"... and I wonder if a drop from 1.425 BIOS to 1.408 in Windows is a lot and if so what I can do about it. I read something about a pencil mod, which just by the very sound of it alone I'm not up for though I should probably read about it I guess. Can I just crank my vcore up in the BIOS enough to make up for the droop, and will that work? If I set it to say 1.49v (-ish) BIOS side, that should give me 1.45v while in Windows I assume.

Think this has anything to do with my 3.0ghz wall?

UPDATE: Wow I say.

I just built myself a home made cooler for my southbridge consisting of a copper heatsink and a small 30mm fan. I hack sawed the heatsink to size (it was a bit big) and screwed the fan to it with two old woodscrews. Yes, woodscrews. I then proceeded to apply AS5 to the underside and two tiny dabs of high heat epoxy on two corners, then pushed that down into my southbridge.

While waiting for the wee amount of epoxy to cure, I decided to stick this extra 120mm fan in so I popped off three covers in front under my DVD-Burner and thanks to the extra casing on the fan found it slid in the hole pretty well... so I stuck it in. Just to make sure it would stay put while testing I wrapped a rubber band around it and tied it off to the case inside. Yes, a rubber band.

I then plugged the little southbridge cooler into the mobo (for speed control purposes), and the 120mm into the powersupply. Since it has a little low/med/high switch dangling off it on a wire, I left that sticking out the side of the case so I can leave it at low... but crank it up to high if my house ever catches on fire. Given the work I'm putting into this, no I will not be evacuating if my house catches fire so the switch may come in handy.

I just fired the system up and here are the results.

Southbridge at idle
Before homemade cooler... 90c
After... 68c (that's 23 degrees!)

CPU temps at idle
Before 120mm fan in front... average of mid 40's
After... average of mid 30's

I am crazily happy with these new temps and my amazing Woodscrew Southbridge Cooler™, and Rubber Band Intake Fan™.

VERY impressed. Now, if only I could get this damn things clocked over 3.0.
