post #91 of 110
Just got my reapers... i am suprised how fast frys shipped, never used them before.. day and a half and they are here and free shipping

Anyway, i havn't been able to get them over 900mhz yet... i am at 5-5-5-15 right now... will keep working on it, im at 440fsb right now. with this 6420 thats 3.5ghz on stock cooling... TAT and bios say 40c, but thats gotta be way low.. at 1.5v... hope the tuniq shows up soon

Hello, thank you for a nice thread!
I have a question regarding the temperatures. On my P5K with quad 6600 and DDR2-800 2gb the ASUS probe application shows motherboard temperature is around 45-50 degrees without any overclocking, when winXP is idle(just showing desktop). The default warning temp threshold is set to 45 degrees, it is no problem for me to change it, but i suppose there was some reason to put it at this value. I use standard CPU fan and a small additional fan on the case. What you think, such temperatures is a normal behavior, or i have some kind of a problem?

those are normal temps for a stock cooler and a q6600..if you want lower temps, you need to invest some more $ in a better cooling solution.

He is talking about the chipset temps I believe.

Tjhis is a great concern to me as well--my mobo runs at 40-45C all the time--which is too high i think if the warning values from Asus PC PRobe are to be trusted.

I do not know the reason for this and would love to understand why the elaborate heatpipes do not do more to cool the chpset.

I actually had the same issue with my p5w and I used the default values in pc probe as a guide. Then, once I got on the phone with ASUS, I asked them about this and they explained that simply, the board runs hot! Also, they told me that the defaults in pc probe are just defaults and not set to any particular board so adjust as necessary.

As far as I'm concerned, I agree with you. What the hek is all that copper (ahem, painted aluminum) good for? If we all lived in retardo world it would all make sence but we don't, so it doesn't.

P5K motherboard temperature is not from any of the chip sets.It is from a sensor up by the RAM slots (around the Super I/O chip).
Try to put a fan that blows in that direction and your motherboard temps will drop down.

Curious booger that I am I poked all over my board to see what was hot (not having IR vision) and found that the chokes around the socket got smoking hot when over-volting. I had a 40mm fan doublesided taped to the CPU waterblock and pointed at them. No dount a conventional HS would have helped with this a lot.

i know its a little late in this thread...

but i really would like to know if this board is still a good buy?
im going to slap an e6320 (and next month an E6420)
with valueram 667mhz

when i had the cpu and ram om my intel dp965lt mobo (no oc options)
i software oc'd my cpu and ram to 2.8ghz cpu and 800mhz ram (400fsb)
no volt mods on the cpu or memory volt mods, was on stock cooling and the temp never got over 57c on full load(orthos for 2 hours)

what do you guys reckon ill get on oc
all im looking for is 3.2ghz...anything higher will be a bonus
