Help with P5N-T Deluxe

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I've tried for months now on and off to get the kinks worked out of OC'ing my sig rig. Unfortunately, any time I go past 3.1GHz, it either won't boot at all or, as it has done more than once, boot files are corrupted and I end up having to wipe my main drive. I know how notoriously finicky the P5N-T Deluxes are, so I'm hoping someone can help me out with specific settings I should be disabling/enabling, or specific voltages to set, etc. Thanks for any inside info on this PITA board.

You should be able to reach 420FSB with 1.6v.

As for the OS corrupting.. I've never heard of that. That's not a board or CPU problem.

Your first error was getting the P5N-T and using it with a quad core. These boards are not that great with them. People have problems even without overclocking their quad's.

I thought the OS corruption was not possibly due to the board/cpu, but after it kept happening, it was hard to dispute that it was due to OC'ing... maybe a setting was enabled in the BIOS that shouldn't have been... I haven't a clue.

And yes I realize the P5N-T was a poor choice, and I'm considering getting a P5Q, but I'd rather not shell out $100 if I can get this board's kinks worked out.

Sell you Q6600 for 150$, buy a 2500k for 179$.
Sell your P5N-T for 50$, but a P67 board (see my sig), for 100$.

Done.

First off what BIOS are you running? Update to Revision 1702 if you are not already.
The board has some massive vdrop so adjust accordingly.
Please post your bios settings here for me or PM me i can help you out

Running BIOS 1501... tried updating to 1702 but I couldn't figure it all out since I've never done it before and didn't want to screw it up beyond repair. I will post my settings here in a bit.
