P5N-E SLI and Q9300

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
It's well known that my particular board is terrible with the current 65nm quad cores, but will that change with the arrival of 45nm? Does anyone know if the 45nm quads overclock any better than their 65nm counterparts on this particular board/chipset? It's a long shot, but I'd rather not upgrade my motherboard, I love this beast

I don't see a reason it should change much. On the contrary, the higher FSB might even make it more difficult to OC. I'll be interested to see for sure though. You're better off getting a DDR3 board with that proc. The performance you'll get with good DDR3 RAM is worth it IMO.

Actually the 650i and the 680i do not support the 45nm Yorkield quads.

This is eVGA's comments on this issue:
Quote:
The EVGA 680i SLI, 680i LT SLI, and 650i Ultra motherboards will support 45nm Wolfsdale (dual core) CPU's with an upcoming BIOS update. 45nm Yorkfield (quad core) CPU's will be supported on nForce 700-series SLI motherboards.
This was a big fiasco last november. The NVIDIA 700 series was delayed so it could be updated to support the 45nm Yorkfield quads.

Here is the P5N-E SLI CPU support list. There are no 45nm quads on it.

The E8400 is a great CPU and can be had now for $199 with free shipping at both newegg and clubit. The boards can handle the 45nm Wolfdale dual core just fine!

Heh, a 3GHz 6MB L2 1333MHz CPU for $200. It's a very good deal. And It's faster than the X6800 but costs much less.

how did i not remember that...i think ill get a realllly cheap 45nm part when the prices drop, probably e8200...stock speed is irrelevant to me
