Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 563

post #5621 of 5659
I had a 8800GTS 640 before i got my GTX275 , and it ran smootly on vista 32 and 64 bit on this board. I sold my 8800GTS so i don't know about windows 7 .
I always pull my chipset drivers from the nvidia page ,just select the newest 680i SLI,they work fine for me.

I did have some issues with the nvidia display drivers for a while though after 169.68 the primary display would switch to s-video after instalation , i also seemed to be the only one in the world , drove me insane ,but they fixed it in 178.xx

But lockups etc never

Hi Everyone,
Just joined the site and this is my first post. I came across the above guide(very good by the way) and I am just wondering, as there are some hardware differences between the testing rig and mine, if the guide would apply to my machine as well. I have not really tried to overclock before only using the 110% and 115% features in the BIOS. All I want to do is to increase the speed of the CPU and RAM. I would like to increase to speed of data transfer around my machine. Any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers and hello to all!

The following are my machine details:
CPU Type QuadCore Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600, 2400 MHz (9 x 267)
Motherboard Asus P5N32-E SLI BIOS
BIOS Revision 1801
MB Chipset nVIDIA nForce 680i SLI
System Memory 2048 MB (DDR2-800 DDR2 SDRAM) Corsair XMS2
Video Adapter NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS (640 MB) xxx edition
Audio ASUS Xonar D2x

If you want to increase data transfers, you might be better of with some fast harddrives. Since this is the bottleneck of almost every system, this is the point where you start speeding up your data transfers.

I got 2 raptors in my machine, i hope some day replace them with ssd's, and i can tell you that gives a magnificent push to the system. I got them in raid0, so the data transfer is very fast..

For your system, yes you can use this guide to oc your machine. Just keep in mind the maximum voltage of your hardware, and the specs of it

Man wish I would have found this thread 3 years ago. LOL.
3 years later I finally got my P5N32-E SLI & E6600 oc'd at 3.4G and stable.
Better late than never, thanks Robilar.

Im having crashing issues with my Overclock, which I didn't have before and after i shut down my computer for about 12 hrs, and restarted it crashes after 10-15 mins inside Windows 7. When I change it back to default settins in the bios its fine.

My current overclock specs are:

Intel Core 2 Q6600 @ 2.4 ghz - Overclocked to 3.0 ghz, with a 1333 FSB
(all settings are exactly as the screen shots that was taken on the first page of this post.)

CPU Temperture is around 35-45 Degrees C, SPP temperture is around 75-83 Degrees C

Motherboard is P5N32-E running newest bios, i believe its 1908 or something like that.

It was working fine for like a 2 weeks until i decided to turn off the computer for 12 hrs, and now its crashing, can anyone please help!

I have had the NB of this board on water for about 4 years now and I want to take it out of the loop!

Anyone know of a good NB cooler for this board? I don't think space will be a problem as I have the CPU on water also.

P.S Don't bother mentioning the Sprint because it sucks!!!!!! I have had it on the SB and it is barely handling the heat.

I'm experienced in computers but this is my first time overclocking. I've had this pc for 3 years or so but have never bothered to overclock it, I had intended to once it became necessary.
I've been having trouble getting this board to overclock even by 10mhz.
Whenever I change the FSB higher than stock I get this message on boot, and any overclock I have made is completely ignored by the time I boot into windows. [See Attachment]

I've tried overclocking to 2.5 and 2.7ghz (these figures appear on the boot screen but aren't actually true when I log into windows to check CPU-Z.
I tried these settings by setting the bios to defaults and only changing these a tiny bit, still doesn't hold.
I've also tried several different BIOS's.

Could it be one of my computer components?

Has anyone seen this message before?

Been using this board for about 2yrs now. Running an e6600 @ 3.2 rock solid (thanks Robilar and everyone who helped). Figure it's now time for a cpu upgrade. Want to stick with this mobo considering it's so familiar and it really hasn't given me any trouble at all. Thoughts anyone?

Has anyone tried a q9400 or q9505 in these boards. They aren't on the official support list but doesn't mean they WONT work ? thoughts....

edit: took the plunge and put the q9400 into the board with the newest beta bios 1901.

CPU is running at stock speeds atm. My 800 ram struggles to hit 900 as it used to so will wait for my OCZ PC2-8500 Reaper HPC 2x2GB to arrive before I start OC'ing.

Boots from cold are okay, its the restarts which cause it to hang.

sigh. I have officially been broken. My Q9400 and OCZ 8500 ram has been sequestered to my better half's pc. Back to my trusted e8400.
