[Official] --The Asus P6X58D Premium & E Thread-- - Page 204

post #2031 of 6368
I have a small question about this motherboard. I noticed that on the top of the motherboard for the first picture, for the EATX12V, that there is a block cover on it. Does this need to be removed to expose all 8 pins for connection, or will it work with just 4 pin connections?

EDIT: Sorry about this post, it took several tries, but Google search was able to find something similar to what I was asking for. http://www.overclock.net/8670235-post996.html

Love this board - I'll post some pics soon.

So I know it's been asked before, but I am new to OC and wanted to hear some people's opinions on this. What is considered to be the same temperatures during a prime95 stress?
When I go for 4Ghz, my prime95 temps seem to max at 79/80, but for the most part they hover around 74-78... Do you guys think this is okay or should I go back to 3.8 Ghz?

Your QPI is too high. Lower that now, you are wayyy too high. 1.35 should be the max.

Anyway. For your settings, you can get a higher overclock from 1.4 volts than just 4.2ghz. You have a choice, you can either start lowering your CPU voltage until your BSOD, or you can raise your blck until you BSOD. If you have HT on, you will start hitting a "wall" with your blck at 205. Unless you start pumping alot more voltage into your chip, you won't hop over it. With HT off, the wall is at around 215-220

After about 4.3, you're going to weant to look into upping your PLL to 1.88, your DRAM voltage to about 1.66 to run it at it's rated speeds, and up your IOH and ICH to 1.2 and 1.3 respectively. Also, upping your PCIE voltage just a wee bit (101-103) helps stabilize overclocks for some reason.
I am out of town for the week, so I have to wait until this weekend to fiddle. I did turn the PC off before I left. The case is open all the time. I have found open cases to get LESS dusty than closed ones that don't use filters. As long as you have airflow across the board, the dust doesn't settle very easily. A closed case traps dust in it and the dust accumulates.

Hitting it with some compressed air a couple of times a year will knock the dust off and everything is easily accessible.

Originally I was going to get the rampage III extreme, but with the very very limited stock in the UK,. i've been looking for alternatives.

Now it's your time to sell this board to me, why should I get this board over anything else?

I think there's 200+ pages of reasons.

The main reasons off the top of my head are overclockability, stability and "future" features like USB 3.0 and SATA III.

Oops. I had the QPI votage set to 1.65v for a few minutes until I came back and read the last few pages of this thread. Put that back to auto and set the ram core voltage to 1.64. Hopefully thats the right variable this time. XMP profile for this Corsair RAM did not let me reach desktop: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145286
I manually put in 7 8 7 @ 1600 in bios with 1.64v and it seems to work now. But CPUZ lists my FSB : DRAM ratio as 2:12. Is it supposed to be like that? This is my first time building a computer so I don't know what the hell I'm doing.
heres a screenshot of CPUZ before with everything at auto and after I tried to set it manually to the RAM's specs. Anything look off?

Last week I finally cave in and bought an Intel i7 930, P6X58D-E and Mushkin 998659's. Used some of my old stuff too of course. This week? borrowed the gf's camera. lol.

P.S. -- I have NO clue how to use this camera.

Awesome pics guys!

I wonder why Asus doesn't list the P6x58D-E model on their USA website?
