Overclocking an e6700 in a ASUS Commando to 3.5GHz - Page 3

post #21 of 26
I don't want to scare you into thinking that it might be a motherboard fault, but my experience with the commando had me thinking that there are some faults with the components on the board.

When I bought my commando, I installed everything and tried the nifty little on-board power button and it worked fine. Then I installed the board into my case and made sure that I did not scratch anything. Plugged the chassis power button cable into the quick jumper block.

I push the power button on my case and... no power.


I took the board out and checked the voltages on the jumpers with a voltmeter. There was not 2.5V coming out of the reset pins or the power pins. So, I sent the board back and got a new one.

All I'm trying to say is to not preclude the possibility of a faulty motherboard. In your case, it would be harder to prove to your local vendor that your motherboard has faulty temperature sensors.

If you had a infrared thermometer it would help lots because you could just point it @ your cpu/fan and get a read out on the spot.

Thanks, I already listed it on eBay last night. I am going to buy a new MB, as I just bought a new Q6600. I'm either going to buy one of the following:

1) GIGABYTE GA-P35-DQ6
2) ASUS P5K Deluxe

Any suggestions,

Yeah, you might want to hold onto that mobo if you're getting a quad core...

My Commando has been great at OCing my Q6600, but that's just me....

Are you using an 8-pin or 4-pin CPU connector from your PSU?
