ASUS-32-SLI and 4800+

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I recently upgraded my BIOS to 1019 for the ASUS A8N32-SLI to the newest version offered by ASUS which is 1019. I have one setting that I need to change to increase the multiplier and I am unable to enable the configuratiuon for some reason.

Does someone else have this board combo with air or water (I am on water, but it would help) to give me some ideas of what I can expect, and the settings that you have found that are optimized?

I am fairly new to overclocking, so more details than less would help me.

Welcome to verclock.net!

The 4800 will be half locked, meaning that the stock multiplier, and any multiplier below that will be enabled. You will not be able to choose a higher multiplier.

Nice rig btw!!

Fill out your specs in profile so we can see what you are running. I haven't gone past the 1009 bios yet and I'm running a single core. The board rocks for overclocking though.

You can buy a 2gig stick of RAM but its expensive and not something you can get off newegg I dont think. Right now the highest are 8gig sticks that cost about $7000 a stick. I doubt anyones MoBo on this site can use them unless they are running an expensive server board. Just some food for thought

Anyone help me with the overclock issue instead of the RAM conversation? =)
post #9 of 14
i am also finding it hard to get some help with overclocking my 4800+, i have got the same cpu but a different mobo and ram, but sooo far i am up to 2.5ghz with no errors, i lowerd my Dram to 100mhz (so i dont get mem errors) then i lowerd my HT to x3 and then increased my fsb by 5 and tested in Prime95 to make sure it is good. I have not as yet increased my Voltage as i am not sure what to do with it. hopefully this helps you ...well heres a link to my thread;

that's too much power/money for the average user who isn't familiar with overclocking...lol..
Who recommended that purchase??
ouch, alot of money could have been saved with that thing.....take out the extra 2gigs of memory and sell them. They are slowing your performance down

I bet you are using the PSU that came with the case...
