THE Asus Rampage Formula/Maximus Formula/P5E Deluxe/P5E Thread - Page 60

post #591 of 2014
Just got this motherboard, and I'm quite impressed, it didn't like my memory to begin with until I entered all the settings manually (It would freeze on posting until I did that quite often), but once that was sorted, I ran it for a week at stock settings, then decided to overclock it, I now have 3.8GHz with only a slight voltage increase to 1.28v, all other voltages on stock, with a nice 400MHz FSB and a 1:1 memory mapping to my DDR2 800 modules ran prime95, superpi, and 3dmark all night long and sweet, it's rock solid

On hte advice in this thread, I threw my P5E in the fridge for 30mins. Using a screwdriver and the DIMM slot as a fulcrum, the Heatsink popped right off without much effort. The cold did make the epoxy brittle.

Also, you can improve your SB temps by removing the stupid AILife coverplate. Just glue it back in case you ever need RMA
Once again...

huh....60 pages......
I`m going to buy very first rig from my own money...I earned it hard, so I want everything as perfect as possible...I`m going for e7200/5200, an will oc it...

The biggest, in fact the only problem is motherboard choice...even after 60pages I have some doubts...
I was going for p5q-e, but my config should be in good condition for at least 3-4 years, so don`t want to have bandwith problems...
So I switched to Asus P5E. And now I hear about voltdrops and high NB temperatures, I won`t do any extreme OC'ing, but I want to buy normal board, the one I don`t have to fix on my own, pencilmods and all...
Can newer bios help here?
Is there a voltdrop with Maximus Formula?

Yes there is a loadline calibration setting in the Maximus Formula. Just be aware that vdroop is a design feature built into all Intel based motherboards. Intel requires the droop to prevent damage to CPUs from overvoltage. Wether I agree with it or not isnt the issue, its up to each person if they want to push their CPU to the limit and "undo" vdroop.

The P5E, Maximus Formula and Ramapge Formula are all great boards built on the same platform. With the Maximus/Rampage Formula, you get an extra LAN, 3 pin fan headers and more temp sensors.

oh thanks eric...
so there is nothing wrong with asus P5E?
and for mild OC, like going from 2.6->3.2 it shouldn`t bring instability issues?
anyways, what are the cons of that vdrop feature?
I heard that loadline calibration isn`t very good...could damage components?

Cons with Vdroop, well for one the voltage may drop when you need it to remain stable. Sometimes you can set to 1.4v and it may drop as far as 1.3v (although most Vdroop is not this severe), resulting in instability/BSOD. Loadline Calibration is supposed to prevent Vdroop, and does a pretty good job at it. I havent heard of it damaging any components, but I heard it was bad for the 45nm CPU's (ie Q9450, E8400, E8500 etc.). Another way to prevent Vdroop though is to do the pencil mod, which is explained in one of the first posts.

There was a known stability issue with the 45nm CPUs and Loadline calibration. But I havent experienced it myself, and I've built a few 45nm systems. It also seems to only affect the Rampage/Maximus Formula ATM, and not the P5E.

What CPU are you going with? 3.2GHz is an easy overclock for the newer 65nm and 45nm CPUs. The P5E can easily push 500FSB with a dual core, and 450FSB with a quad. These arent extreme speeds at all for the chipset.

I`m going for E5200, based on my needs, and what is written on Tom`s about VGA-vs-CPU, it is more than enough... It would be my first OC expirience, so I won`t regret much it if so cheap CPU goes dead, hope I won`t do it to him...

I have my build plans here: http://www.overclock.net/intel-build...ld-4850-d.html
So feel free to comment, I would appreciate it very much, this is my first build, want everything to be perfect...

Finally got my P5E working the way I wanted...

For some unknown reason, it won't boot at 401-450MHz using the lowest memory divider. However, using the next divider (4:3)... it works fine. Strange.


Anyways, my motherboard boots at 473MHz at 1.49v using a Q6600. Higher than I expected.
Once again...
