Asus P5N32-E-SLI, sharing Bios profiles.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Coming to the point with my lack of overclocking from my e6600 cpu I can only come to the conclusion I have a bad chip.

There is only one way for me to know for sure and that is if I use somones overclocked profile that closly matches my system.


My CPU has the stepping L644G 422, has anyone had any problems with this stepping as I cant get iver 3ghz stable. I fear there could be just one thing iv got setup wrong thats causing these problems. With latest bios my pc wont even boot at 3ghz see my other thred for details

Thanks.

You try to run orthos @ stock?You better go back to default and start all over,in small steps.Don't rush,a good OC and stable require some time.And some testing is the key.

Iv done many many tests and reboots and found that orthos didnt cause a crash as does 3dmark05 within such a small amount of time. What I done was see at what point I can get the CPU 2 test to complete then to run orthos. After my last thred I started again and heres my results,

FSB Max:

1650 x 7 passed.
1700 x 7 failed to boot.
1650 x 8 got passed 3DMARK05

Ran 1650 x 8 second time it failed 3dmark 05, I uped the voltage to 1.43, passed 3dmark05 2 times in a row, failed orthos, video card gave black screen. Orthos ran the cpu at 62c, water cooled.

I couldnt get bios to even boot for several trys, I got 3 or 4 beeps. When I did get back into bios I loaded my stable 3ghz profile.

As i state in my post,oc require some time.And if you never oc before need more.You need to know each componet,and tweak each one when needed.A i can suggest use the x9 multy.And start in small steps.

I have my bios posted in a thread somewhere here recently - its for an e6420 which the specs are very close except for the 1 reduced multi - which if you use my bios that I have posted it should be dropped down anyways.


*Edit* here it is

Hi there.

Iv oc every pc iv owned and havent had much trouble as this before. Iv followed the standard procedure as iv always done, which is clock the memory and take the multi down to find the max FSB, then, in this case try using the max FSB with the highest multi I can get.

In this case at 9x I cant go behond 1340 regardless of voltage. The best I can get at 8x is 1650, but that fails in windows after doing 3dmark tests.

At 1600mhz x8 it was still unstable even with the vcore at 1.43v. At 1340mhz x9 which is 3ghz I can boot and run windows no problems with 1.36v.

The only thing I can think of is, a better PSU or iv missed a setting some where, which is why trying somone elses profile which iliminate this.

PSU wise, I had setup a Tagan 480w to run eveythink but the motherboard and another Xilence 480w to run just the motherboard and my drives. The 12v rails was always above 12v so I dont know?

try a very low NB voltage- like 1.25 or 1.3. I had issues POSTing after 3.4ghz until i dropped the NB a lot. not even sure why! its not even hot at all.

You've already had several forummers respond regarding this issue and recommend a better psu. Its not just sheer wattage or amps on the 12v rail. This board is very sensitive to ripple and the tagan may be tolerable for lower sensitivity boards but the asus needs stable clean lines.

Also, just because the 12V is above its standard doesn;t mean it stays there. The best quality power supplies keep the 12v at a consistent score. Lower end power supplies can spike up and down based on usage and overclocking. those spikes affect stability signifigantly. I've never had a quality power supply over the 12.0 median. Without exception, they typically run 11.88 (my current model for example).

My suggestion is to find a store (like bestbuy) that has a flexible return policy. Pick up a high end power supply and test it on the system. If it resolves your issues, keep it. If it doesn't return it. I have upgraded my power supply four times in the last 5 months and my current enermax has helped to ensure stable overclocks.

Thats my 2 cents but power supplies always seem to be the last thing we upgrade and often ends up being the most important.

I have a L645G 337 E6600 and it is volt hungry for OC's. I agree that you need a better PSU for your setup.

I wasnt trying to open another thred on the same thing as I think it was well answered, from which I felt iv run out of idears, which made me think I have somthink wrong setup in bios.

Robilar, do you think that I still could have had a PSU issue even with 2x 480w psu with a total of 3x 12v rails? My motherboard had a 480w psu just to itself which had 2x 12v rails. The rails where over 12v, could the ripple effect still have happend even with this setup?

So what your saying is that somone could get a 700w PSU, but if its a cheap one it still may be no good? I notice your PSU is very very expensive.
