yeah, i'm pushing a lot of vcore through this chip. It's been taking it fine for 6 months though, I've got the best air cooling money can buy on it so temps never get even close to 60C.

The vdroop is kinda sick on the p5n-e (~0.08 volts with a 50% or more OC), so that's one place I'm hoping the DS3L might improve the oc-ability.

I have mine at 3.2 Ghz at 1.39v in bios.After the droop I think it's 1.34, so you should be able to push it more. I never bothered to see if I could push it more on that voltage or the same with less voltage.

Hmmm. IIRC I can get 3.2 GHz on this board at around 1.4 vcore...but above 3.2 all of a sudden it becomes really power hungry. What I don't know if that's the chip, the rather sad 3-phase power on the P5N-E, or the 650i chipset. Either of the last two would suggest that it would perform better on the DS3L.... I may just have to test it to see....

hoping you guys can help me. Ive just building my computer now including this motherboard. I have a case that was a housemates old one but is still fairly decent. Its a thermaltake case, (sorry no idea of the model) It has quick plug and play up the top for usb , microphone and earphone plug. i have worked out the usb's but am trying to plug in the audio. Now im using the F_AUDIO plug on the motherboard. My plugs is all seperate from each other and im not sure which order to put them in. The plugs from my case are as follows
mic in
ground
mic vcc
ear l
ear r
return r
return l

Now i can pretty much place all but the return r and return l from the motherboard manual.

Can anyone help?

Best results so far today, I'm still waiting on my ThermalRight IFX NB cooler, pics and more tests to come tomorrow.

Q6600 G0 - 3.6GHz 1.4Vcore 53C Load.

More tomorrow.

Alrite. New to the forms, but I'm not new to overclocking. I am comming from a long line of AMD processors since the 486 DX4/75, in fact I dare to say this is my first intel platform (the Pentium 60 doesn't count!)

I've been running an XP3700+ 2.2ghz OCed to 2.8 with 1GB of DDR400 for several years, and until Crysis and UT3 I have had no problem with my hardware.

Quick question: I've read 50+ pages of this thread, and here is a question that I have:

I am using OCZ2N1066SR2GK memory found on the compatibility list. It's rated for 1066mhz.

Is DDR2 memory running at 533mhz FSB with a 1:1 (2.0 setting in the bios) yield the same memory bandwidth as the module running at 266mhz FSB with a 1:2 (4.0 setting as it is designed to run). And, does the module know the difference? Or is this considered overclocking it?

If this statement is true, then as far as overclocking, I'd rather run 533 FSBx6 multiplyer (3.2ghz proc, 1066 memory) with a 1:1 which would yield a better memory bandwidth than 400x8 (3.2ghz proc, with a 1:1 for 800 memory), which most people seem to do in this thread.

Anything wrong with my logic here?

Theoretically you should get the same memory bandwidth at 533 1:1 and 266 1:2 (and 426.4 at 4:5, or w/e), but that really depends on how well the MCH runs those straps. And no, the module doesn't know the difference, but the MCH does. I'd say try them both and run some benchmarks

As Tribeca mentioned, you'll want to confirm that those settings really are better with a benchmark. Theoretically, 533x6 would give you more memory bandwidth (and FSB bandwidth for that matter), but will it offer more performance? Probably not much, if any, which is why you'll want to benchmark it before and after.

Also, another thing to keep in mind is a 533mhz FSB will take extra voltage on your board, and thus reducing the life of it. If it were me, I wouldn't run it on that high of FSB all the time for what little performance gains it offers, just for the sake of saving my components.

And finally, the most likely reason why people in this thread are running their memory at 800mhz (or thereabouts) is because most of us only have 800mhz memory, and attempting to run it at 1066mhz usually proves to be futile.
