Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 78

post #771 of 5659
Hi everyone! This is my first post here. I'm such a n00b in overclocking but I'm pretty sure Robilar's instructions and experience of all will teach me a lot. Thank you all!

I'm planning to build a new system and I'd like to ask you a few questions. First off, I'll definitely go with Intel EXXXX CPU, Asus P5N32-E SLI (possibly Plus) board, Raptor 74, 2X1GB RAM, 8800 XXX graphics, Antec 18X case and 700+W power supply. I wish to buy E6700 and 8800GTX and I'm waiting for more price cuts

Here I go:
1) What is the difference between P5N32-E SLI and the Plus model in terms of overclocking and general performance? There is like a 30-bucks gap (plus being cheaper!) and it's not a trivial decision.
2) Will PC2-8500 RAMs post with P5N32-E boards without manual settings? What's your recommendation for RAM? Are PC2-8500 worth the price gap compared to PC2-6400?
3) Will SATA optical drives post immediately? I'd like to go SATA but I don't want to risk not being able to install the OS.
4) Would you say there is a significant performance difference between Zalman 9700 and 9500AT?
5) For the PS, I'm thinking about Thermaltake Toughpower 750W. I wonder what you have on it.

Many thanks in advance! I really appreciate your time...

$400? Done! I'm in! Well.. so long as:
a. I feel I can do it (should be fine)
b. It doesn't blow as much hot air into the room as people say it does
c. It it does, then only if I can somehow get that air to flow out the window...
d. It will be modifiable to adapt it to future sockets

Hey i recently purchased a p5n32 sli, due to recommendations from Robilar. Ive got a e6400, 2 x 1gb sticks of ballistix tracer, pc2 6400 800Mhz

Ive had 3.2 Ghz out of it, and it will boot up into vista, but when i run orthos it just produces an error, 0.5 expected less than 0.4. Bios Version 0903
I have been using
HT Voltage as 1.3
NB Volatage 1.45
SB 1.55
VTT 1.55
and Vcore at 1.35

Memory voltage at 2.1 with timings of 5 5 5 18 23 1T

Anyone got any ideas?
Cheers!
Andy
First take!

I am not sure what the error is, not sure I understood what it meand... but your NB voltage may be a bit on the low end

with the p5n32-e the voltage is set up at 1.35 as the default when set to auto for the vcore. intels web site says the range for the proc is .875 or something to 1.355 i think. so im wondering if thats a little on the high range or is this a standard stock voltage for the e6600 with this board? im running it at 1.25 no probs so far at 2.790... just starting slowly.

Robilar:
have you gotten the thermalright ultra extreme yet? if so how does it fit with the TT Spirit's.

Also, i was wondering if, with the stock heatpipes removed, how necessary is it to put the additional cooling you mentioned on post 82

That is the max volts to the CPU on boot up. I set mine to 1.35
post #779 of 5659
Why would it be more on bootup? I dont get this setting, can I leave it as auto, or should I just set it to whatever my Vcore is, or what?

If you read the beginning of this thread, Robilar clearly explains that it doesn't really do anything, and that for best results you should have this at its maximum settings, which should be 1.55v.
