P5N32-E SLI 680i Quad Failure - Page 6

post #51 of 199
I dunno if you have the newer revision mobo..but heres something interesting I found on VR. Take a look!

Quote:
EVGA announced that their NVIDIA 680i SLI Motherboards have gone into the Revision A1 state, an updated revision with improved overclocking for the Quad Core Kentsfield Users. As a show of their good customer service, they have offered direct cross swap for all customers of the first version of EVGA 680i boards and to cover the shipping costs both directions. It's all good and easy if you live in the US, but some staying in certain countries may find even this "win-win" arrangement difficult... Or even, those with NVIDIA Reference boards but not under the EVGA brand name might not even be offered this service.

Hmm....my P5N32-E SLI 680i is a Rev: A2 is that better?

I'm not sure A1 is the latest for eVGA, A2 doesnt even exsist for them.

wow... promising then!

That thread was very short... but it seems you know where to look

But I have an ASUS, not an EVGA


so where did you get those pics of the P5N32-E SLI? I didn't see that thread, is it the link to the OCXtreme thread, cause I am waiting for activation from their admin

Although one thing i haven't tried is upping the CPU VTT voltage in the Bios around 1.5v+ on this board. Robilar discovered that this option did aid stability on the Core 2 Duo range. So maybe setting higher than 1.5v could help?

I doubt it since Robilar's thread is so popular... I mean, someone would have already posted about higher FSBs on the board

Just in...after 2hrs of looking-> GTL V'mod for 680i mobo

First of, CREDITS go to freecableguy who have pointed out to the Overclocking community the VGTLRef spots of the Intel QUAD/DUAL CPUs..
thread here!

I believe thats what you will need!!
oh..and Mhill-> yes..rev1 or A1 does have some different mods..vcore for sure..make sure the vcore mod you are using is for your rev...or mobo dies!



post #58 of 199
*Also..all the the mod threads, suggested cooling the mosfets and Vreg's with some sinks when upping and voltages with vmod's. Temps will start climbing on those components when you force them to have a continuous load, at a higher voltage. Just doing the Vdimm mod, made the CPUv and MCHv fluctuate more than before the mod..extra cooling helped minimize the voltage fluctuation some.

the 680i isnt a very strong board when it comes to Quad Core overclocking, we all know that...
but what it does have is a great ability to tweak ram, and great SLI options.
speed for speed, it can use alittle work, but with some good tweaking, it can be just as good, or better then other boards out there.
except one thing always plagues it...
its Quad Core overclocking, is just kinda pitiful.
333-350 is the typical stable range, while you can get 6 x 450 to work on a unmodded board... if you only use the 6 multiplier. 7, 8, 9 and higher... become near impossible for some reason.

well, I saw a few weeks back that Shamino released a great little guide to modding the 680i, and I instantly went and grabbed my soldering Iron, and did the mods, and confirmed that it worked... then just kinda lost interest, and went back to my main PC.
well, alittle bad luck (killed my P5B deluxe while doing a dry ice test)
now, I am back on my 680i... with alot of free time on my hands, I decieded to give a few things a try.

first, breaking 400+ stable, with a Quad Core.
so, back to the old mod I went.

as of right now, I can say this about this mod.

1. More Voltage is Not Better.
do not, just keep upping the GTL Ref Mod.
you need to find the sweet spot.
which can be really tricky, since it seems the voltage is almost specific to the FSB. for instance 9 x 400 only works at .775 volts... while 8 x 450 is only stable around 1.110 volts.
leaving 1.110 volts, should make 9 x 400 work too right?

nope. doesnt work like that...
you seem to have to tweak the voltage, specific to the FSB and Multiplier your aiming for...

so its a very time consuming mod to say the least.

2. Voltage Range.

for me, anything above 1.2 GLT Ref volts wont even come close to getting into windows. it just will load the blank screen, and never go past that.
so when tweaking, I say aim in the .70 to 1.150 volt range.

3. very picky...

this is a mod that requires time, and patience.
lots of it. lotsssssss of it.
if your the kinda person that just wants to get over with something... dont bother with this mod. so far, its taken me 2 days, and about 5-6 hours of trial and error to get this far, and about 100 OS crashs... corrupting my OS about 5 times, and (sadly) corrupting my back up Hard drive too
so be patient, and be methodical when testing this.
theres no quick fix to making this a solid mod.
source!
post #60 of 199
WOW... this is it!

But 100 crashes and five corrupted OS's sounds scary... I guess I would be better of if I was only trying to go higher as opposed to tweaking it up and down every multi... so having only one multi means I only would need to find one voltage and ther is a good chance it would be very close to "9 x 400 only works at .775 volts" IF I can cool that enough with a lapped TT+Silverstone...

That would be rad... I mean a 3.6GHx Quad!!! OMG I'd B zo l337!!! muahahah... (and a dork if I keep this up )
Too bad he's got waret so most likely out of my league bi a long shot

But there is also the chance that the CPU wouldn't like 400FSB, and that the TT not be able to keep the 95W Q6600 under 73C, and wether the Swiftec copper RAM sinks would be enough for the mosfet cooling... and what about the life of the board... hummm... I am too noob to weight the pros and cons... CL3, can you think aloud about whether to do or not to do this mod?

And perhaps a line or two dedicated to my specific situation...

Reppage+ great stuff CL3, just great stuff!!!
