10% overclock gives me this eery beep and it makes me nervous so i shut it down, then i tried 15%, no beep, but windows vista 32 bit couldn't start, all it could do was get to the "loading" screen then instantly blue screen, 5% overclock and raised the PCI speed to 105mhz, don't even know, but heres a SS of my processor..

Ok... I got one question. It seems to me that you're just using the auto OC option. See if you can turn that off and go into manual mode. This is where you're supposed to be able to actually tweak the FSB, RAM, and NB, and the voltages for them as well...

As for the graphics, since you have nvidia, go for it on rivatuner and download atitool to check for artifacts. Make sure you have adequate cooling on the graphics and that it's not running too hot.

Maybe even turn up the fans a little if you're not afraid of loudness

yeah i started to OC the processor, i got it to 2.6, then when i went to change some value, from 1066, to 1333.3, my system wouldnt post and i couldnt get into bios, i had to reset the motherboard, to get back in, i haven't touched the processor, but im pretty sure that my evga 256mb 8600Gt is doing more harm then my processor, (it's bottlenecking isnt it?)

I'm pretty sure that the video card doesn't have anything to do with the OC'ing of the CPU. The only way it bottlenecks it is in performance in games and benchies.

"Start off by checking whether you have the latest BIOS for your motherboard by visiting Asus's support homepage. If you need to flash your BIOS simply extract the downloaded BIOS ROM file and put it ono a USB flash drive. You can then use the EZflash feature of the P5N-E, which you can find within the BIOS under the Tools option, to flash to the latest BIOS. Useing the EZflash feature itself is fairly self explanitory, but you can find further information in your motherboard's manual if you need it.

I never use the automatic BIOS overclocking features as I prefer to set my frequencies and voltages manually, plus auto features are about as useful as a bottle of crisps. The P5N-E is certified to run 1333FSB CPU's, so simply select the manual overclocking options, raise the FSB from 1066 to 1333 and change CPU voltage from AUTO to 1.425v. Afterwards stress test with Orthos. If Orthos fails kncok CPU voltage up a little more. If all is good in Orthos then try lowering the voltage in an effort to reduce excess thermal output until you encoutner instability.

That will give you a nice easy 3.0Ghz. Afterwards aim for 3.2Ghz if you want, bu anything over that will require you to play with other voltages as well as the CPU voltage."

thats what i really need to do, isnt it?

Good! You're doing research yes, because that comes from an ASUS user, just follow what's written there and see if you get the same results...
