I'd keep it and stick a couple fans in the top as exhaust and you're good to go.

Sounds like that Nvidia special memory thread we talked about earlier and was basically poo-poo'd as marketing fluff.

However in the case of Intel XMP, this is more important in getting proper memory speed? What happens if you overclock the FSB? Will the XMP get in the way and we're left to adjust the memory settings manually like we do on the M2N32 anyway?

I always set mine manually anyway,but it gives the 1600 option in the bios,in all other respects it behaves normally.
HT,NB and Ram all still increase with ref clock.

I have not got around to trying that yet. I have my 570GTX OC'd and fan speed set though the Nvidia control panel which sets everything where they need to be on system start-up

I could mount the cooler so the flow of air is vertical but then the heat sink would be dumping hot air on the RAM and I don't like that idea. So back to the drawing board I go.

I have to do the same thing with my Zalman CNPS 9900Max to have it blow up since the mounting bracket for the M2N32 is different from the other M2N boards. I just have it blow up out of the case via a 200mm fan thx to my Antec 900 case.

On another note, I decided to mess around with OC'ing on my M2N via the ref clock instead of purely though increasing the multiplier fixed at 200MHz ref clock. After playing around OC'ing with a old 3800+ X2 on a cheap board. Worked on finding the maximum stable ref clock for my M2N board when I ran into a issue at around 245MHz where I get a instant BSOD. Thinking that I have reached the point where my HT link was at the point of being unstable (at around 1250MHz) I proceeded to lower the CPU/HT down to 4x and when I get into windows my system freezes. I have tried putting the other HT setting to 4x, and adjusting the HT via Nvidia control panel. also and same thing happens. The HT at 5x back with my normal settings everything is fine and I fed my NB about 1.3V fixed. I know my 4 banks of ram populated is going be my overall limiting factor from what i have been reading from the professor a few pages back.

I have decided to discontinue my OC efforts for now due to some high temps when I am folding running at 3.9Ghz versus the 3.75GHz which i have been running at now until I can re-TIM which is a pain with my cooler. Pretty much have to take my mobo out of the case to get the cooler off or i could mess around with turning my back out take fan in to blow on to my HS/Fan since the cooler blocks mounting of the side fan.

BTDT. This is actually another reason I abandoned NVT I could never get my system to boot with the manual settings into Windows with HT multi set to anything other than 5X; It's almost as if NVT is fighting the situation presented to it by BIOS. With PMT, this is all good.

As for OCing my two GTX 460s, I do that with EVGA Precision so I don't have to rely on NVT for any performance tweaks in my system.

Hey Gr8,

Use MSI Afterburner for tweeking your 460 overclocks. It allows you to tweek the voltage as well wink.gif YVW wink.gif

Hi N2G,

EVGA may have provided some utilities for this as well, but if you like the MSI one, I can look into that.

But more importantly than the tool itself, are there some good reference settings you can recommend? My two cards aren't exactly identical but I was able to use EVGAP to get both cards OCd and running at the same clock settings. One of the cards is running up at 77C I noticed when playing Skyrim. The game plays flawlessly at 1080p. Both cards run flat out when playing the game. As in 100% utilized.

I had a bad encounter with an original Sapphire 1900GT card where I messed around with OC and I think the card died of overheating but couldn't be totally sure. Took over a month to get the thing RMA'd.

I have not looked into pushing the Fermi cards using increased voltages to know what their safe limits are. I'm sure though I could get more frames by pushing them higher. So let me know what you suggest.

Its late and my brain is fried but I got the computer up and running. This is what I have so far. Also my Nivida program is telling me my motherboard is running at 235 degrees celsius. That seems mighty hot. My cpu is idling at 37 degrees celsius.

Set Windows Power Options or Power Plan to High Performance to set the right multiplier. your Vcore looks good. NST is probably trying to read a sensor value that doesn't exist.

Thanks for the info, I have to try this after I get my temps hammered out. When i pop my core voltage to 1.4, temps under full load become a little unsafe for 24/7 operation. I guess I can just disable the profile on boot. I use Afterburner to monitor temps, GPU usage, Fans speed, and FPS so migh as well set my GPU OC though it as well.
