Asus P5LD2-VM & highest FSB settings

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Anyone owns an Asus P5LD2-VM and has overclocked it ?
If yes, what's the highest FSB setting you have been able to reach. It seems this mobo won't go any higher than FSB 225.
I just need to get sure about that before I possibly switch to something else.

have you tried relaxing your memory timings? I've heard that it is fairly easy to get up to 4.0ghz with the 6xx series...

give your memory room to breathe!
make sure your pci/pci-e/agp/sata/whatever frequencies are locked.
ditch the generic power supply, P4 prescotts are power hungry and youre probably choking it to death lol.

Hey deathdispenser,

Check this link: http://forums.sudhian.com/messagevie...&enterthread=y
The guy who owns the same mobo says that he switched the power supply to Silverstone 520W Fragbox 2 and still he adds "Now, only issue i have is overclocking, im not sure if its CPU or mobo, but i cant seem to go over 220MHZ FSB. (giving me around 3.15GHZ on Intel 820) and that is rock stable, but 1mhz over that and it wont boot."

I've tried everything:
Relaxed my memory timings to 6-6-6-15
Locked the PCI-E bus to 100MHz
Locked the PCI bus to 33.3 MHz
Increased VCore to 1.5
Increased VDimm to 1.9

You name it ! Still whenever I get close to a FSB 223 or 224 my system simply doesn't boot and my monitor led starts to blink !
I'm thinking about switching to the P5LD2 mobo but that means I'll have to sell mine and probably lose some bucks in the process.

Would it make a difference if I temporarily removed my Nvidia card (to save some power and divert it to the CPU) and ran my system on the mobo integrated Intel graphics.

** Edit: Tried removing the VGA card (since the GPU uses the 12V rail too) but nothing happened. I still can't go past 224 FSB. This is really frustrating.

Hey!!

I´m working with FSB 263,4 Mhz. I think I can reach 266 w/o any problem.

Good Luck!

mobutu16,
But you have the p5ld2 deluxe whereas I have the p5ld2-vm.
Could it be that my board is limited to FSB 224 because it's a mini-atx ? or because it has the 945G chipset (yours have the 945) ?
One other question: What Kingston ram do you have ? Is it the Value Ram KVR533D2N4/512 ?

I should get a good psu very soon (brand name, around 500W with at least 25A on the 12V rail).
I might have to get a Thermaltake psu since this is the only good brand name that sells locally here. Any specific Thermaltake model that you guys recommend ?

I hadn´t read any diference between p5ld2 vs p5ld2-vm in terms of FSB. About Ram, KVR533D2N4/1G are the mine.

My psu is 550W, HEC Win Power 240W output 32A(3,3v), 38A(5v),, 120 fan and 8x4pin connector, 2x4pin fdd, 4x5pin sata, 1x12v 4 pin, 2xpci-e, 1xeps12v...and the price in Spain was good 110€.

I have the same ram modules except mine are 512MB each.
As for the mobo, I have read on many forums that people who own it cannot get a FSB higher than 225 normally. I'm not sure whether this is due to the fact that it's a Mini-ATX or not.
I have ordered a new power supply. Antec TruePowerII 480W.
I hope this will solve my problem otherwise it would have to be the mobo that's limiting my fsb to 224.
