Asus P5KC Overclocking

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
When im running the S&M test I get an Error everytime I run it or my computer just shuts down and resets, I cant seem to pass the S&M Test
Anyway I think its because my MB (P5KC) is the one that limits my CPU to a certein temperture that when it reaches that Temp it resets the comp, now my question is, is it possible to change that option and disable it ? (if there is even one)

Btw I must say that Ive OClocked my CPU to 3.1 GHZ (my cpu is Core 2 Quad Q6600) and i change the Vcore voltage to 1.4125
And the memories V to 2.00
and disabled the EIST C1E and SS options

and Btw the Error ive got in S&M Is something with the test was interrupted at the V "X.X" and had 1 time same Error just with 68degrees
I must say that ive tried to pump the Vcore Voltage to 1.425 but it still kept happening and I made a conclusion out of it that its not voltage unstability

Hey, I'm not familiar with the S&M test what is it. Try running another test like Orthos
http://www.overclock.net/downloads/138142-orthos.html
Prime95
http://www.overclock.net/downloads/137251-prime95.html
or OCCT
http://www.overclock.net/downloads/191765-occt.html
If this

is your RAM it should be at 2.1 volts. That may be why you're failing. Also make sure your BIOS is up to date.

I used to use P5KC as well, and no problem passing S&M tests.
Probably something wrong with the software if your OC can pass Prime but fail on S&M.

I'd say P5KC is a nice board, but I replaced it because I had a Crucial Ram issue of the board. I RMA'd memory twice because I didn't know that it was a mobo causing a problem.

N2ways, like 'x2s3w4' said, just try Prime. it will be fine.
