ASUS P5N32-E SLI & Muskin XP2-8500 4gig (996562)

ASUS P5N32-E SLI & Muskin XP2-8500 4gig (996562)

After a whole week of tweaking, efforts to POST @ stock 1066Mhz-5-5-4-12 has all but failed.

A short call to a technician at Muskin, reveals that it is a known issue between the P5N32-E SLI // Striker and "high end" memory. After calling back as requested by the technician, he said that their technicians were unable to POST @ stock speeds during their 5 hours of manual tests.

The suggested solution was to exchange from ASUS to EVGA or BFG due to their referenced designs.

Does any1 have a similar experience? (Is this a really a known issue?)
Does anyone know of BIOS settings or hacked BIOS for this MOBO to make this work?

This thread will also provide updates to this situation incase things such as a new BIOS resolves this problem.

thx

as well, I seem to recall the this memory worked in the very beginning (2 days) when I had the memory set to 2.3v ...until I realized the voltage monitor was reporting 2.4v. Sometime during the first week of BIOS settings testing, my memory failed to run at stock speeds anymore. Could these short 2 days of 2.3v setting being actually overvolted at 2.4v have killed the memory?

Yes it could. 2.4v is pretty high for any memory. Also to your point about mushkin's comment. I;ve run 4 gb ocz and 4 gb corsair (both pc2-8500 kits) without issue on the board.


"stock" incidently is 800mhz. The ram is rated up to 1066 but try it at 800mhz (at whatever timings) and see how stable it is.

Also, the 1103 bios (most recent release) has added a number of ram compatibility profiles to the motherboard bios. Give it a go as well.

appreciate the quick and concise reply.
I have most certainly tried and am continually running at 800MHz as I am left with no other choice....anything beyond 900-950 is unstable.

Well, as far as the definition of "stock", at Mushkin, they were honest enough to stick to their rating of 1066MHz as their "stock" speed with this ram which is what the memory was being testing at over there.

As well, at 800MHz these modules can run at 1.90 volts, something to consider for those afraid of buying ram that can't boot on first POST tho there are obviously cheaper alternatives with this feature.

How much (if any) does your mobo P5N32-E SLI overvolt your ram by as well?

P.S. your P5N32-E SLI guide ROCKS!!!!

According to the BIOS on my P5N32-E SLi, the RAM is overvolting by 0.03v when its set to 1.9v.

In pc probe, my memory (set 2.1 in bios) shows up as 2.14. Ntune, however shows it as 2.1V.
