I run differents benchies but so far the best is with the x 10 multy.The 1 with the x 8 is good too.Now im using the one with the x 9 multy.
As discussed, the higher the multi, the faster the strap. Keep it at 10x and work from there.

Nice overclocks

I tried to make sense of your build log. What board are you using? You list having purchased the Asus board but referred to checking with EVGA for support (but did you get an ATI card or an Nvidia one?)

If you provide a quick summary here of your issues with the Asus P5N32-E board, I may be able to assist you.

Your pictures show the Asus board so you can see the confusion.

the ram btw, should go in the two blue slots (or two white slots)

Your cpu fan should be oriented to blow air out of the back of the case

The cpu fan header should use the bottom (or right) 3 pins so that it locks on the tab supplied.

Edit, ok clicked on your newegg link and saw that you got an evga card.

So your assumption is that the card is defective or the board?

If there was a broken memory clip out of the box, you may have gotten a returned board (not new) and possibly defective. Shipping would not break a memory clip.

C2D E6400
EVGA 7600GT
Asus P5N32-E Plus
Crucial Ballistix 2x512 MB PC-2 6400
Apevia 600W Power Supply

Are these specs correct? (You should fill out your system specs, it took me awhile of jumping around the pages of your log to figure out what you actually bought)

First off, I'm using the 903 bios. So with that said, I've tried changing the multi from 9x to 10x but when I save and exit this is reset. I've tried changing this and another thing at the same time and the other thing will save but the multi will not. I'm I missing something or is my cpu's multi locked?

You are running an E6600. Its default multi is 9x. You can lower it but you can't raise it. The only chips that will do 10x are the E6700 (default 10x multi) and the Xtreme chips like mine with unlocked multi's.

Thanks for the quick response. At least this explain why the price of the 6600 to the 6700 jumps so much compared to the 6400 to the 6600.

Even with a 9x multi, you should be able to do 9x390 (3.5 Ghz) without issue. Follow my guide (Vcore at 1.4 - 1.45 should do it)

Robilar, I just wanted to thank you for posting this guide and helping walk so many people thru issues. I have found your posts very informative, and I have decided to take the plunge with this board and use the guide to OC it when the time comes. I was wondering if you wouldn't mind taking a look at a build I have going on NewEgg and offer your thoughts on the components? I hope I'm not too off topic, but I wanted to find out what the best options were for this board given your knowledge of it.


NewEgg Wish List: CheapSkate

My questions are mainly the following:

1. Do you think an E6600 is a good idea for OCing until the X6800s drop at the end of the year?
2. The Patriot Memory - I have read that is has great OCing properties, but I am a n00b so I have no idea - any experience with it? TIA!!!
post #79 of 5659

The E6600 is excellent. You should be able to get 3.5 to 3.6 Ghz easily on this board with air cooling

Patriot memory is a mixed bag.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227191

OCZ Reaper HPC Edition 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500)

Its $80 more but if you go with the PC Power power supply you'll even out in price. This RAM also has EPP Profiles (SLI Ready designed for auto overclocking with this board).



http://enthusiast.hardocp.com/articl...50aHVzaWFzdA==


Here is a review on that BFG power supply. I would avoid it.

this one is much better (And the money you save can go to the ram I recommended)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817703008

The PC Power & Cooling 750W Quad ($90 cheaper)

The antec 900 is very cluttered for a pair of 8800gtx (if thats what you are planning down the road). I had the case for 2 days and returned it. Single card, its fine although you won't be able to mount the internal fan cage off the back of the hhd cage. The thermaltake armor is only $40 more and much better for upgrading.

Wow perfect! That's exactly what I need to hear! My plan is indeed to go to two 8800s down the line. I want to get a machine that I can basically put together and keep stock for now, as long as it plays STALKER and OBLIVION with no trouble on max'd settings. Gaming is my only thing, that's the only purpose of this box besides minor office stuff and web surfing.

So I want something I can run for now, and then start OC'ing and adding onto it later as the games become more demanding. I have an Antec Titan 550 case still (roomy!), and lots of good fans, as well as two WD Raptors in raid 0. So with the adjustments you suggested, I should be looking at a nice setup!

I plan on doing the NB/SB cooling solutions like you have right off the bat, as well as the a CPU cooler (you suggest yours for an E6600?). I also have a portable air conditioner that I put right on the side of my last box, venting out the window (little custom job I rigged to keep my 7950s and AMD X2 +4400 cold) so I can use that to make it frosty inside.

The only thing I am unsure about still is the PSU. I have read so many reviews stating that 1Kw is almost required for dual 8800s, but I picked that one on egg b/c well, I'm cheap! But I will look at your suggestions and read some more reviews - no sense in wrecking the whole thing to save a few bucks.

EDIT: Can you use 2 PSUs? I always wondered that. Could you like use one just to plug in your video cards and the other for your mobo etc, Or does the main cable have to be attached to the mobo for it to work? I'm a dolt I know, but I'm just good at killing digital monsters, not building boxes ;P

And lol on the memory, I took that OCZ out at the last second! Back in it goes Any other suggestions you might have would be very welcome, and thanks again for the help, it's awesome to get advice from someone that has tested it and knows!
