Asus A8N-E Problems

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just got a Asus A8N-E and a 3700+ SD. I have tried to overclock several times but it seems that none of the settings that I change have any effect as soon as I get into windows. I have found that if I leave the bios at default and run at HTT 5x once it gets into windows it reverts to 4X. Although if I run Ntune it will not revert to 4X and stay at 5X. Does anyone else have any problems like this?
Thanks alot for any help.

As for the 5x multi being changed to 4, It doesn't seem right unless it automatically does it when your FSB is over 200?
I know the HTT multi should be set to 4x if you change the FSB above 200 up to 250, after 250 it should be 3x etc, it needs to be kept under 1000 (5 x 200 =1000, 4x (200-250) <= 1000). I'd suggest using the jumper on your board to set everything back to default and see if it stays at 5x.

Well I have cleared the cmos many times and nothing has come of it. I am just not able to figure out why I can manually set my HTT to 5x and leave the FSB at 200mhz and when I get into Windows my HTT will be running at 800mhz but as soon as I start up Ntune it changes to 5x and 1000mhz.

Try using Everest to see what the HTT Frequency is. Check this pic to see where u can find the HTT Frequency. Haven't come across this problem anywhere.

Are u using AiBooster to check the HTT when u say that its at 4x multi ? If so, don't worry about it. After 1005 BIOS, AiBooster always shows the HTT Frequency as HTT*4 whether u set it at 3 or 5.

I have been useing Ntune and Aibooster to check the HTT and other MHZ's, so that might be the answer to that. But I am still haveing a problem with overclocking, it seems if I set my Multi to 11x and FSB to 210 which should be roughly 2300mhz windows and all of utils such as "cpuz, ntune, aibooster, sisoft sandra" all report it at 2200mhz. Although if I do the same overclock in AiBooster suddenly all of the programs can see the overclock and my benchmarks are getting better. Any ideas on why this is happening. Am I missing a setting in the Bios that is somehow reverting my overclocks? Thanks alot for all the help guys.
