Problems on 820 on Asus P5n32 overclocking

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
New to forum not sure where this goes so its in CPU and motherboard forum,,,

I recently took my first attempts at overclocking on my new rig,,, just to start all my specs are in the bottom but im running water cooling at 21 at idle and 25 at load so i doubt its a temperature issue.

Anyway I tried running the system at a few differnt settings. I have the nvidia 6.82 drivers and the new 0209 bios if it helps

1. just putting the bios at 20% overclock it does auto settings. It posts and gets into windows and all seems fine till I run 3dmark03 or prime95 and it crashs and hangs. Sandra will run tests and puts up good numbers but thats all. in windows shows 960 FSB and 240 CPU bus.

2. tried doing it all manually,.. CPU at 1.45v,,,,, NB at 1.5v ,,,, SB at auto ,,, Hyper transport at 1000 mhz ,,,, memory at 2.1v and tried 2.0v and 2.2 v,,,

I then tried bumping the FSB from 800 up slowly but hit a wall around 900 FSB and wont post after that.. I can get it into windows at like 225 mhz on the CPU but thats only 3.1 ghz and whats the point of water cooling then.

3. I tried loosening my timings the OCZ gold comes at 4-4-4-8 although cpuz shows it at 4-4-4-12 ,,, I tried 4-5-5-13 and 5-5-5-14 but no help in posting.

4. I have tried tweaking voltage but it just wont post pass a certain point and its no where near the reports of 3.8 and 4.0 ghz some are getting out of this setup with different ram.. which leads me to believe its a ram issue but OCZ gold is suppose to be good.

5. Other thing is in bios there is no CPU lock free setting do i cant tweak the cpu bus directly only the boards FSb which seems strange,,,, any help or ideas would be great,,, I can hit 23750 with stock and 24014 with it running at 3.05 ghz but anything past that isnt stable in 3dmark03....

its just a general printing and its an error for the p5N32 but thanks for the info and help,,, I got it to see both cores and it ran dual core in windows, came up in CPU-Z task manager and even my sandra scores jumped. It still wouldnt run stable for overclocking which was the whole points,,, I have since RMA most of it and ebayed the rest,,, I swapped out the MOBO,, CPU and ram,,,

I have a DFI SLI Expert, opteron 170 and ballistix 2gb z503 on the way to me so i made the AMD switch after spending hours upon hours trying to get the board to run stable but it would constantly crash,,,

oh well it was a costly error but its worth getting rid of all the headaches hopefully

I'm not done working out how fast mine will go but I didn't have the problems you experienced.When I get it maxxed I'll post.(I am at 3.5 on air right now) Maybe it just likes the 830 a little better.

must be an 820D over a 830 thing it just wouldnt respond nicely at all to my 820

good luck
