Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 562

post #5611 of 5659
These are my temps for the Northbridge & Southbridge. Are these too hot? I dread tearing down my system to put fans on these chips but I haven't even overclocked at this point.

Suggestions please:

  • SPP 72 °C (162 °F)
  • MCP 63 °C (145 °F)
Motherboard seems to be hot too? 43 degrees?

thats pretty hot, i tie ripped a 50 mm fan to my
SSP and went from 79 to 52 c under load
Thats probably because i got the mugen 2 on my cpu wich does a great job on the cpu , i installed to vent out and not downward ,and the p5n32-e sli has heatpipes all round the cpu,so no airflow there, but strapping a simple little vent for some air flow does wonders

You can expect BSOD's around 80-85 c (on my board) (SSP)
My MCP isn't modded yet,it runs at 66c idle so i'll get another fan tommorow when shop opens

and about the mb temp,everest gives me 33 c idle

edit : i'm running a mild oc with these temps e6600 from 2.4 to 3 ghz but when the southbridge is cooled it can go waaay faster

When I had the board I ended up cutting the heatpipe to the NB and replacing the HS with an aftermarket. 43 C isn't hot for the mobo, but you'll want to get the NB down in the 50s on load. An aftermarket HS should give you more breathing room in your OC. If you don't want to cut it a 50mm fan will do just fine.

Man I haven't checked out this thread forever. Was one of my frequent visits too. God bless Robilar.

Is it normal when i clock my E6600@2.4 to 3.5 Ghz and beyond it says that another cpu is installed??
After post,a quick mesage comes up saying that and then it reboots,it runs fine though and it still shows as a E6600.
Temps are fine too (all under 50 c except the MCP runs at 59 c,but it was much hotter when i ran stock and without a fan ziptied to it so that shouldn't be a problem.

When i clock under 3.5 Ghz it again tells me that a new cpu is installed,like there are 2 E6600's one for under 3.5 and one for above

Am i pushing it to hard ? temps are still ok.. boots into windows,can play around but i went back to 3.4 just to be safe

Can anyone comment on this?

Cheers!

Yeah it does the same for me on my current bios. It seems to be the way that the initial overclocking issues with this board were fixed.


Certainly don't worry about it at all if you are still able to o/clock.

Edit: I see some questions about spp and mcp temps - this is my pc with a HR05 sli and some other random chipset cooler, temps for both mcp and spp are around 48-50 without any cooling on the heatsinks apart from the case fans.

OK, I hope someone can assist me with a little issue that has been driving me CRAZY.

I see some people on here with similar setups. Are any of you having issue with this motherboard and their 8800 series video cards? I am having all kinds of issues that started with an 8800 GTS which was returned and has continued with two 8800 GTX's they have sent me RMA. I am running Windows 7 64 bit currently, however it started while I was still running Win XP 32 bit.

Tech support for the video card says it could be the MB Chipset isn't compatible with the Nvidia drivers, however the only Chipset provided for this board is from 2006 from Asus website. I have updated the BIOS to the latest. I tried using the OLDEST Nvidia win 7 64 drivers, from May 2009, but didn't solve the issue. I could try to reinstall xp and use drivers from like 2007 (I know those WERE working, but I wasn't sure what drivers I was using when I updated them and they stopped working. I don't want to go this route...

I saw where jacksondoggy is running a very similar setup as me and was wondering if he had any issues? Regardless, are there any ideas out there? BTW, I was running an ATI 6850 HD card in the meantime during RMA period and it was flawless. That is my HTPC card, not designed for gaming so don't want to use it. Please help!

Issues like games locking up, display driver not responding, windows rebooting itself.

Sounds more like a software/OS problem. A fresh install didn't solve the issues for you, which driver are you using, can't you find some pointers in your logs (of the os)?
