ASUS A8N-E Questions - Page 4

post #31 of 65
Strange. I can't see a A8NE-FM in ASUS' website. U sure that's the model number ?

@Boris, the steps are pretty simple. First, set all the OC options in the 2 menus that I've posted before to manual from Auto. Lock the PCI bus and fix the HTT Multi at 4x to start with. Start increasing the FSB by 5 Mhz at a time till u find the limit of ur RAM. Once u hit a barrier, try upping the RAM voltage a little and see if goes further. If it does not, that would be its limit. Use a 333 Mhzz divider and start increasing the FSB 10 Mhz at a time now till u hit a wall on the CPU front. Increase the CPU voltage from 1.40 to 1.4125 and start again till u hit a wall. Up the voltage again one notch and start again. That should be it - Easy, huh ?

wow. cool. I didn't think it was that easy, thanks alot.

Can i keep the RAM timings at the maufacture setting? (2-3-2-5 for the G.Skill TCCD 2 Gb kit), or should i change the timings to 2.5-4-3-7?

and then up the FSB 5mhz step by step...

thanks for the easy guide. reps to you.

BTW, do i have to reboot everytime i change a setting in the BIOS?. Or can i change a few at a time, then reboot.

Do i have to run stability tests if i am only OCing to 2.4? do you think my RAM will OC to 2.4ghz (ratio 1:1) with CPU or will i have to up Vdimm or change timings?

will it be stable at 2.4 if i set everything to what you said or is it 'trial and error'?

what is the worst that could happen?

does the RAM automatically change FSB with the CPU if in 1:1 ratio, or do i ahve to change the speed myself?

thanks again
Boris

In OC'ing, nothing is foolproof. So, its "Trial and Error" all the way. Keep the RAM at 2.5-4-3-7 as u'll be OC'ing. U don't wanna fiddle with the timings everytime u increase the FSB.

Run SuperPI Mod 1.4 32M test after every FSB increase - This after u find the limit of the RAM by using Memtest after the initial FSB increase. Initially u'll be increasing only in 5 MHz instalments and later in 10 or 15 MHz instalments. Use SuperPI when u go into the 10~15 Mhz phase. If not, download OCCT and run it for 2 hrs for every accumulated 30 MHz increase ( 3*10 Mhz at a time or 2*15 at a time ). That will tell u if the system is really stable or not.

And yes, ur RAM does increase in the same proportion as ur FSB if the RAM frequency is set to 400 MHz in the BIOS ( 1:1 ).

There's nothing worse that could happen. Ur system may not boot into Windows, random crashes or blue screens are what may indicate a bad OC.

[QUOTE=Freaky]Strange. I can't see a A8NE-FM in ASUS' website. U sure that's the model number ?

right, there is no that MOBO on its site, it has nF4 chipset, and under that chipset on asus site there is only A8N5X MOBO, i really dont understand...

here is full name of the chipset (as it says in users manual): NVDIA nForce 4 (CK8-04 Standard - A03)

and it was bulk packed... :-/

i tried to find bios for it but i didnt have much luck...

Download CPU-Z from www.cpuid.com and check the Mainboard tab and see what it shows under Model.

Damn !!! That should be an OEM A8N5X. Try the A8N5's BIOS - Check if it works.

Get Clockgen which works on the basis of chipsets for the NF4 series. Get it from www.cpuid.com

oook...i did...i have to put it on his pc first...tomorrow maybe...say, you have almost the same configuration like him, only hdd and ram are different, he has gb of ram, kingmax...

what is better anyway, 512 in piece or 2 x 256...? im planing to buy a new ram soon, so everybody says different...
