post #8111 of 12343
Finally getting some real joy out of this mobo...
http://3dmark.com/3dmv/2875542
nailed 18606 futuremarks with 4g of 1066 ram (at 15x multiplier) on 2xgtx260sli with 95w 945 P2 cpu... (was 11080 on 2g of 800 corsair ram, 1080 or 1120 on the same with phenom1 before finishing the refit)
a few questions, popped up in the meantime, though...
to get 15x multiplier i had to up the voltage to both cpu and ram, and once i did i took a big hit on cpu clock potential- using 4x, i could up fsb to +18% (2360 mhz hsbx15 = 3.54gb) and pci-e multiplier +14% (2850 in sli) in total comfort (ie-nTune couldn't bluescreen; just crashed until it reached a stable rule a bit lower)- once I set ram to 1066 in bios, and specified 2t and 15x instead of auto I'm pulling 3.150 stable after many crashes higher (had bios tweaked to 2.4 and rolled back to 2.1 to keep away from profile launch errors, bsod, and the like)...
did nTune hit the sweet spot for voltage and hence pound out a much higher fsb on 800 mem than on 1066, or do I have to also lower the multiplier on both HT and FSB to go higher at the same voltages i'm onto now?
what kind of performance (3d gaming rig, proper now) difference (fps) could I expect really pouring on OC and jumping to 3.6 or higher (archon air cooling on cpu, corsair ram with heatsinks, and sparkle calibre 260s in a HAF hightower case)?
I run damn near anything at 59 fps 3d full settings, and usually average over 140fps on anything short of metro and arma2 running 2d... does it get any better than this, or is it a purely mathematical exercise at this point?
should I just roll my bios settings back to max the cpu speed and keep the fsb and pci-e high with 800 mem x4g, or keep buggering with the 1066, 15x multiplier (stock reads HTT ref 753.932mhz, Ht@5, HTbus 3769.658 mhz, cpu mult x4, CPU core 3015.727MHz, mem bus 1507.893(DDR2) PCI-e 2500 Mhz Pci 33 mhz, GPU core 666 mhz, Gpu mem spd 1134 Mhz ... "baseline" profile at rest - but the "tweaked" profiles don't seem to become active on their trigger events? -anybody using N-tune to get decent (mild) overclocks, or do I have to re-apply rhose values to bios to get a sold OC?
thanks for the attention -jJ'

honestly you should oc in bios, then you know all your setting are they way you want and set them. it also gives you better control of your oc. also if your going to raise the bus speed i would suggest lowering the ht to at least 4x multi.

Edit: also please go to user cp and then edit system and add your computer details in there, it makes things easier for us to help you.

Ok, did a test today, initial bootup no issues so I left it running.
Some time later i returned and it had frozen on a screen saver.
Reboot gave same issues as yesterday, however I have removed the cover and it is running fine now.
Is this an over heating issue?
I never had this problem before until I ran 3DMark06, now removed from my system.

Hey all

I have an update on the Noctua NH-D14. I ordered it, it came and i installed it )

It turns out, that the cooler can be installed ONLY north-south, and not east-west. Apparently we had some misunderstanding The cooler in stock settings does NOT fit.
but,
If you move the 120mm fan from bottom to top, then there is enough space for the pci-e slot, and my 295gtx. But then that space is so narrow, that the airflow is GREATLY limited, and you have a 2fans pulling config, which makes things worse(no push)

SO.. i moved the gtx295 to the second pci-e slot, the black one. (so far so good, i will later run some benchmarks to see if there is any noticable difference.. none found so far) Now there is enough space and with a good extra, to use the default push-pull config of the NH-D14 cooler. I had no other problem with any other part, ram etc. * edit* moving the gtx 295 in the bottom slot, had no performance issues but instead, it's closer to my bottom intake, making it drop a few degrees due to fresh air, making it possible to oc it a bit more.

And now the good part. with the setup i made, intakes, exausts etc, this cooler ROCKS xD
phenomII 965, oc'd @3,7 idle is at 31 degrees, with OCCTP cpu test, large data set(full stress) max temp is an amazing 45 degrees. which only hits once in a while and then drops to 44.

so.. unless i see something in those benchmarks later i don't like, i greatly recommend this cooler. It's the biggest around, but definitely for a reason
i do not recommend it however, in SLI rigs. for 1 card solution, with our mobo(m2n32 sli deluxe) its very very good.

The m2n32 sli deluxe, is the only one of the m2n family, which has a compatibility issue, according to Noctua. Other mobos should be fine. even m2n32 premium was listed as ok. So for mobos that fully support it, go get this monster ^^

download MSI kombuster or nvidia ntools and turn your fans up. also when is the last time that you cleaned them, they may have to much dust build up.

Practical applications of Overclocking and lots of fans:

It's cold and you don't have a heater? It's snowing outside? You ran out of gas/petrol/wood?

Don't worry, here's the solution!
Just run OCCTP in "power supply" mode and leave it for an hour.
OR.. play your favorite new generation game, in extra max insane video settings.

Your room will be warm and cozy... enjoy



Ps. sorry for the spam guys, i just had to write this
a little joking improves your mood

xtac You know you could always fold on those GPU's for team "37726 OCN"

Not only will it load up both cores of your GPU at 100% each but it will also help cure diseases in the process while providing you w/your desired room temperature

IT's a win win.

hehe nice one n2g smart marketing
Seriously though didn't know about that. 1st time hearing about folding. May actually join and take part maybe in the next foldathon, this one already started i guess.

An extra reason to squeeze some hertz out of this box. for 2 days. might be interesting

about the nh-d14, it turned out good. and the video card in 2nd slot shows a decrease of performance, around 0,2%. average frames in the test i did, was 277,8 in 1st slot, and ~277,4-3 in the second. Which for me is zero difference. didn't do an extensive test yet though.

So This board has 1 16x pci-e slot and 1 8x pci-e slot
(bare with me cuz im learning here)
Could I sli a Gtx460 1gb with a gtx 460 SE 1gb? Putting the SE version in the 8x slot? or do they have to be identical

You should run identical cards.
Your board can run 2 460 1gb no trouble.
$170 ea before shipping and taxes when you by a set http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814162064and a free game.
