Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 561

post #5601 of 5659
So, anyway, what's the best BIOS for overclocking a Q6600? I've been through the whole thead but couldn't find a conclusive answer. I got the 1205 BIOS currently and wanted to overclock further then the measly 2750 Mhz I got running right now, since It's proving to be a bottleneck for my new GTX275. Any help will be greatly aprecciated.

I just got an IFX-14 that I want to install so that the air from the fans I put on it will be exhausted through my two 120mm case fans rather than my 2 PSU fans and an 80mm hole that I will eventually be inserting a fan into (or on the backside heatsink since it will be right below that). Yes, it will fit, though not very much other room. What I am interested in is cooling the northbridge heatsink since I have switched from the stock HSF which would spew air from the cooler and onto the northbridge heatsink and mosfets. I'll list out my questions for easier reading.

1. What size is the northbridge heatsink (just the part that sits on the chip). Height, length, and width. Estimate in the shape of a square is fine/preferable.

2. Is it worth getting the EVERCOOL EC-VC-RE Ball All In One Vga Cooler Kit and some mosfets compared to placing a small fan on or next to the northbridge heatsink?

3. Would placing a small fan underneath the IFX-14 that blows across the mosfets (so that it is blowing the same direction as the fans on the IFX-14) effect the temperature of the northbridge? I don't have an IR thermometer so I can't measure the temp of my northbridge. This could be measured by using passive cooling on the CPU then reading the temp of the northbridge before and after having a fan cool the area near the mosfets if somebody is willing to look into it.

4. How much of a pain is it to remove and re-install the northbridge heatsink with some AS5 (don't factor in removing the motherboard because I will already be taking it out)? Will I have to put some AS5 on anything other than the northbridge chip itself?

5. Do you think having two 120x38 Delta AFB1212SHE's in a push push or push pull will create enough airflow for the northbridge? If H is heatsink and F is fan with the case fans on the left I mean either HFHF or FHHF since this has two split sections.

6. Am I being overly paranoid about this? I had my system running with 1.4V to the northbridge with no problems and the stock HSF so I'm sure it won't need too much extra airflow, if any.

Got to thinking about this at work and I want to know other people's opinions and I can't do any measuring myself at the moment. Also want to look into possibly using the HR-05 if it fits inbetween the two IFX-14 heatsinks or the HR-05 SLI if it can offset enough to go outside of the IFX-14 but these are definently not preferable.

Do you have any pictures or proof that they will mount and clear SLI cards? It looks like they would be a good fit, just wandering.

Hey all, back to the thread after some time away with two questions:

1) Will lowering my CPU volts help bring my northbridge and/or southbridge temps down?
2) What is a comfortable set of temps for the NB/SB?

My NB tends to run around 72 at idle, and up to maybe 77c underload. the SB is maybe 5c less than that at all times. Something to be worried about?

I think those temps are extremely hot for both. I think you want 60 max. What voltages do you have your nb and sb set at? I suggest for the moment is to lower your overclock, and get some active cooling for both.

Hi,i have just build a new computer with the P5N32-E SLI,with aQ6600,everything works,all the fans turn,the psu runs,the videocards run,as far as i can see the memory works cause the lights work,on the base of the module,(crucial ballistix tracer)only the colored leds on top of the memory don't,but the computer will not boot,all i get is a black screen,not even a bios screen,anyone who had the same problem or who knows what to do,help is very welcome!!!!

Very little differences in my NB/SB temps at stock speeds actually, plus I can't go back now. Did some tinkering, same OC and my NB and SB both stay at around 68c under heavy load so I'm not as concerned.

I have the same issue sometimes with my second pc using P5N32-E SLI with E6600, 4 GB A-Data, 8600 GT. The problem is random, sometimes is starting, sometimes not, to fix the problem is to get everything out of the case and put them on the table.

I expect my Areca 1210 Controller in today and I'm wondering if anyone uses it? Any problems? I plan to RAID 0 2 Raptors on it and also will install an INTEL SSDSA2MH080G2C1 X25M 80GB SATA 3.0 Gen 2 solid state drive on the main controller.
