Considering the ASUS P4P800SE - Page 3

I OC'ed to 3.7 and couldn't run prime95 for more than a minute or two. My heat went skyrocketing and must have shut down at 60C. BT here I come.

I know you've already got the board but I just want to say that yes it is a great overclocker. I got mine at 3.6 no problem, but my RAM can't handle that on 1:1 so I'm at 3.25 now. Anyway, one more thing...hopefully this won't happen to seeing as it's been a year since I got mine, but my USB ports just died out. All of them. I am assuming that this problem is rare with this board and that maybe you have a newer revision or something. So you shouldn't hae to worry.

Other than that, great board for a great price.

So far I'm supremely happy. I'm one heatsink installation away from being totally happy with my first self built OC computer.

I've got the p4p800se as well and haven't had any complaints. One question i have for you.. the specs say the board is made to support ddr400, how does ddr500 work in it? I'm looking at RAM on newegg right now and debating on buying ddr400 or 500...

is this the stuff you got? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820146845

DDR500 will run at DDR400 speed at stock (200 MHz). As you overclock however, you have lots of headroom before you get to the stock speed of DDR500 RAM. Essentially, until you OC your system to 250 MHz, DDR500 is not stressed. If you OC the system beyond 250 MHz, then the RAM starts to overclock.

Holy crap... this heatsink is such a let down.

I got the Zalman 7000B- Cu and it has done a whole 2 degrees difference with the fan at full blast(and around 12 decibels but that wasn't the point of getting this.)
