SAME... You used drivers from another board? It's so annoying Realtek audio drivers for download on asus for the P6X58D p would freeze my computer, after uninstalling them with ccleaner, thinking its a nvidia hd audio/ Realtek hd audio problem. No more freezing but ***? I cant use my 5.1/7.1... The hell am I supposed to do? download from Realtek website??

You can register Asus products on their website, recommendatory.

Finally!! A little stability and success - I killed itunedHelper and suddenly I passed IBT @ 4.2 .. I don't even want to think about how many potential hours have been wasted because I had iTunesHelper running while testing OC settings....ugh. But then again, maybe it's just a coincidence..

I have not posted any images here, or anything like that, I do a LOT of lurking here, so bear with me and hope this post and my screenshots turn out OK. Anyway, I finally have a decent start on a stable. much lower temp 4.2 overclock than I have ever been able to get before. I have no way to thank all those here and in other threads whose posts have helped me so much to understand how to overclock my system, what to look for, how to test, etc..etc... But I do have to say I think I have got a lower temp, fast running, stable 4.2 profile..It feels a LOT faster than 3.78 GHz I use day to day and it seems to run just a little higher temp...barely.

I have had a stable, consistent booting 4.20 GHz overclock BIOS profile for a while, but it ran a little hotter than I wanted at 4.2 GHz. It would get too hot when torture testing and it just made me a little nervous because of the temps, especially since all I have is a single fan Hyper 212+.

Now yes I know that I should get at least another fan for a push-pull setup, or ideally move away from Air altogether, but I wanted to get some advice and feedback on temps and running at 4.2 GHz with CPU-Z core voltage @ 1.272 .. yes I know I could buy something to cool the CPU... I definitely plan on improving my cooling, but not right now.

Right now, for browsing, posting, email, watching vids and such my temps are in the upper 40's to 50c (but always seem to be in the mid to upper 40's when I look at Real Temp) on air, with this $25 cooler, and maximums shown are right about 60c. I will do some more testing, but I have to say I am pretty happy with how promising this profile is looking. I knew the core i7's run hot, and I knew that I would be putting this CPU through quite a bit while going through the process of trying to get a stable, high speed overclock.

But in the end I figured..to myself anyway..that I would be good if I could keep my temps in the 40's like they are now. Is the 40's too hot for this workhorse of a CPU that intel so graciously put out there for us to play with? It's REALLY hard to not run at 4.2 it's SO much faster than 3.78... Is 4.2 on air relatively common?

Got the new system put together last week. Replacing a 13-year old, slightly upgraded Dell Dimension T550. Wow! Canon DPP runs noticeably faster

I'm up to page 400 of this thread so far, and learning a lot. Just started playing with some of the settings.
