  1. If anyone wants to know how the Tuniq Tower 120 performs then all i can say its it performs similar to water cooling, but without the hassle. My old Danger Den Maze 3, and Ehiem Pump have been retired for good after getting my Tuniq Tower 120. It kept my old Athlon 64 X2 4400+ Cool, and its doing a grand job on the Core 2 Duo. Im currently running at 3.5Ghz @ 1.425V (+100mV) in the BIOS. Im not sure what Voltage im REALLY running at since i have 4 different programs telling me 4 different voltages but suffice to say, after the machine has been on all night and with the ambient House temperature being 23Deg C, my CPU core is currently 37Degs C. After playing FEAR last night for over 1.5hours it only got upto 43Degs C , and in ORTHOS it has yet to break 45Degs C !! Im still not ORTHOS stable at this speed though, so im going to have to feed the CPU more Volts....... But looking at some peoples comments in this thread, and the acceptable temperatures, i feel i have plenty of room for adjustment whilst still keeping my temperatures sensible.....
  2. Hey Raiderfan001. I have the 2007 Trial Version of Everest, and it doesnt even include the Engineering Sample as a list entity. Maybe they have dropped it from 2007, but it might be worth seeing what the latest Everest Version displays.....
  3. Hey all, Im currently going through the motions of trying to get my rig into the OCDB @ 3.5Ghz !! Im having to increase the Juice to the CPU, but so far i dont seem to be able to get a reliable reading !! In the BIOS ive selected 1.425V in addition to the +100mV option. In the ASUS PC Probe 2, it says my Vcore is 1.47V Z-CPU returns a Votage of between 1.213 and 1.440. It just keeps jumping up and down etc.... Whilst EVEREST says im running at 1.325V, but the Voltage icon for the CPU in the Taskbar just shows the letter T. Anyways, im now going to run OCCT 30 min test along with a few loops of 3DMARK06. If it gets through that then its on to ORTHOS !!
  4. And here is the First OCDB Entry based on the ASUS P5N-E SLI (well i think its the first, not checked) Not bad for my first attempt. Im pretty certain i can get 3.6Ghz out of this setup, since the temps at 3.4Ghz with just 1.425V are a paultry 42Degs in ORTHOS, leaving plenty of room for further increases in Voltage. I also need to add some memory OCing into the mix but for now i concentrate on finding the CPU limit.
  5. Waahoo. All problems sorted and i now have an Entry in the OC Database with 3.4Ghz !! Im well chuffed !! I have to push my CPU further especially since the Temps are so good (ie plenty more V's i can use) and then i need to find out what my Memory will take !!

  7. OK, Well im upto 3.2Ghz (400x8), and is OCCT / SuperPi32m stable, so its time to keep pushing
  8. I can confirm the latest OCCT works properly on my rig. Just completed the 30min test and it pops up letting you know "TEST COMPLETE - STABLE" Now to push on with More testing
  9. In the mean time, Ive checked for a newer version (which i have found) and im giving that a try at default clocks....... I will update this thread in around 30 mins
  10. On my old DFI NF4 SLI-D, and AMD CPU combo, i would try and OC and run OCCT as a pre-stresser before running ORTHOS/PRIME 95 etc. If the OC was unstable OCCT would return a message saying something regarding "The test has been haulted because of XYZ" If the OC was good it would say, something like "PASSED or COMPLETE" I cant remember the EXACT wording but you get my drift...... On my Core 2 Duo machine, I can run OCCT at 3.05Ghz and get no errors. However, when it reaches 99%-100% it doesnt say any PASSED/WELL DONE/CONGRATZ/COMPLETE message etc, it just goes back to 0% !!!, saying remaining time :0H 0M 0S, and still displaying the STABILITY TEST Title !! So whats going on? Has it passed. Or is their something wrong? Ive even gone back to Default settings which were >24Hrs ORTHOS stable (I didnt originally use OCCT at Default clocks) and it does EXACTLT the same !!
  11. I havent got a full key. I only intend to use the TRIAL version...... Although i have another problem now !! Im using 1.563V on the Northbridge, just to see if i could pump the ONBOARD LAN back into life, which it hasnt done. So ive had to buy a PCI card which is really going to limit my options for installing anything else Anyway the problem is this........ Im using 1.563V which i selected in the BIOS, and since double checked....... Everest still quotes the Northbridge Core voltage as being 1.25V. So it hasnt changed according to Everest..... Is their any other program that can confirm what the voltage is? Or can someone with the ASUS P5N-E SLI board confirm that Everest does'nt show the OVERCLOCKED state of the Northbridge? Thanks in advance........
  12. SORTED. Managed to get to the Beta link after all (the one you posted). It does indeed support my Mobo now !! I can report the Chipset voltage as standard is 1.25V. Im gonna up it now and see if i can bring the ONBOARD LAN, back to life as suggested from another forum member. Will also help stability for ORTHOS me thinks Thanks again PRAZ
  13. WOW, your Message was too fast for me to read it. Lemme see if i can update it. The file name was exactly the same thats for sure, but the link you posted didnt work properly ( i think its because you have to entre Details to download)
  14. Doh, Aparently their latest Version doesnt fully support my Chipset/Motherboard......... It cant report back ANYTHING on the northbridge !! Gutted !!
  15. Oooo i have that program, but just havent installed it yet. Thanks for that PRAZ !!
  16. Hey guys....... Well I have booted into Windows @ 3050Mhz..... Im running SuperPi 32M calc and OCCT together at the moment. Whilst i see if these are stable i wanted to find out what the default NB Chipset Voltage is.......... My board only has 5 settings....... Auto, 1.208V, 1.393V, 1.563V & 1.748V Ive noticed alot of guys have been upping this value to around the 1.7 - 1.75V point in the Overclockers data base...... Im at 3050Mhz with it set to auto, but i have no monitor that can tell me what the default value is. Not even the BIOS tells me what the default is !! I've never been able to get on with Motherboard Monitor 5. I loved ITE SMARTGUARDIAN on my old DFI NF SLI-D, but with this ASUS i got the ASUS PC PROBE II, which is ok for CPU temps, Fan Speeds and CPU Voltage, plus the rails, but no NB voltage (or temp for that matter) Anyways, i hope someone can help me out soon. Cheers in advance
  17. Ive cured my 2.8Ghz (350FSB) problem with the latest 0401 BIOS. Im booted at 2810Mhz (352Mhz FSB) and its running fine. 57% into the OCCT test....... My Onboard LAN is still borked (Has to put in a PCI WiFi card to get online). Ive checked absolutely EVERYTHING, both BIOS and Windows related. Ive also tried dis-abling and re-enabling everything. Tried manual Settings and DCHP. Obviously i cant account for corrupt windows drivers etc, but i have un-installed/disabled/re-installed Hardware from BIOS/Windows and drivers etc !! I've even hooked upto a second switch and carried out exactly the same testing, but unfortunately with the same results. CHUMP - Thanks for the tip.......I havent tried it yet (just booted into the OC'ed settings) cos ive only just read it but once this OCCT has finished I'll up the NB voltage a little. BAJA BUM - Hope you get your Rig up and above 350Mhz FSB. Like i said above, a new BIOS sorted out my ASUS board. I take it you've already flashed your DFI Board with a BIOS which is known to allow >350Mhz FSB settings?
  18. It looks like I'm having the same problem but on the ASUS P5N-E SLI board. I tapped in a FSB of 1600QDR (400Mhz) thus effectively giving me a 3200Mhz. To get the machine to boot, i had to press the reset button twice. When it did eventually boot, i was at 2.8Ghz !! (350Mhz) not 3.2Ghz. On this BIOS I'm limited i think. Im just downloading the latest BIOS to see if that fixes things. The only downside is, im having to do this on my Lads PC because the overclocking efforts have completely BORKED the Onboard Gigabit LAN. In DHCP mode it refuses to aquire an IP and simply times out. Tried this on both my Router and Switch. From the Command prompt, ipconfig /release also fails !! As does ipconfig /renew !! Once the new BIOS is onboard im hoping it will fix this glitch !! The Mobo LAN and OS are obviously talking as it correctly displays when i have connected and disconnected the CAT5 cable !! Although i did reset to defaults in the BIOS i havent cleared the CMOS (although i thought that's what RESET DEFAULTS did from the BIOS) Anyway, im a little gutted right now, because it looks like im gonna have to RMA the board unless i can get the JOLT the ONBOARD LAN back into life !! No way do i want to take up the already FEW PCI slots with an aftermarket LAN card
  19. If you check out the Skt775 Overclockers Database, you can see Angry's Database entries for both the motherboard and the various overclocks achieved along with timings, components etc etc
  20. Just want to confirm if i can add any Overclock i do manage to achieve, into the Overclocking Database, even though i dont have the DFI or Gigabyte Motherbards.... Ive just been through the Current Database, and colated all the data available on E6400, so i can guage how much i should be able to achieve.... Once ive completed the testing, and providing the answer to the above questions is YES, I'll be putting forward an Entry of some sort (Fingers Crossed)
  21. He doesnt work for DFI anymore.......... (Well Im pretty certain he does'nt anyway.......
  22. Well, Ive just this weekend ditched my old DFI LANPATY UT NF4 SLI-D, Athlon 64 X2 4400+, with 4x512Mb Sticks OCZ Value VX series Memory due to not being able to get the god damn thing ORTHOS stable !!! I moved to E6400 Core 2 Duo, teamed up with the Brilliant ASUS P5N-E SLI motherboard. I did masses of research as i always do before buying things, and all i can say is so far so impressed. OK, i havent pushed up the clocks yet but at least im now PRIME/ORTHOS stable at default clocks, which i never did manage on the DFI board. If anyone is thinking about what board to buy then this is the one for the best Price/Performance Ratio right now. I also considered the Gigabyte Q mobo that has been mentioned in various posts of this thread, but it was a good £25 more expensive...... So if your still not convinced about the ASUS P5N-E SLI then go read these reviews....... http://enthusiast.hardocp.com/article.html...W50aHVzaWFzdA== http://www.neoseeker.com/resourcelink.html?rlid=144302 http://www.neoseeker.com/resourcelink.html?rlid=144323 http://www.hothardware.com/viewarticle.asp...cleid=925&cid=3 http://www.anandtech.com/mb/showdoc.aspx?i=2894&p=1 http://techgage.com/article/asus_p5n-e_sli http://vr-zone.com/?i=4450 I will of course be upgrading my Siggy and posts to let everyone know how far i manage to push this baby !!
  23. I've had this machine Overclocked for most of its life...... Its only since i went to a LAN party and had stability issues (well Crashes to Desktops) that i decided to start over again. It was at this point i realised that my machine didnt reach the term STABLE or come anywhere near it, even at stock settings as in my original overclocking attepts i didnt bother with Prime 95 etc (I did a half hearted attempt) The only thing i could use some advice on is, if i have a very old, and very full XP SP2 installation with between 45-48 process's running on it, am i lilely to be failing ORTHOS anyway? Should i really carry out this Stability testing from a fresh install Anyways, Ive just bought some 2x 1Gb sticks of Crucial Memory, so once they have arrived I'll give them a try...... and see how things shape up !!
  24. UPDATE 5:- Well this is the last update im afraid......... Core 2, failed @ 5hrs, 45mins !!! So it looks like "tasr" is right....... The chances of a machine failing tests in Memtest, but going onto complete all the WINDOWS based testing is remote indeed. Although i need to point out to "tasr" that the testing carried out above is STOCK speeds. No Overclocking !! Anandtech loved these RAM chips tho.... So now im left with a pretty difficult situation....... I have a decent set of kit, that just doesnt work well together........ If i sell the 4 sticks of 512Mb, and buy some decent 1Gb sticks, its going to cost me quite a lot. If i still have problems, then i need to change the CPU, which will also likely cost alot........ I know i can offset the cost of the new kit by selling the old, but its still not going to be a "FREE" swap.... So is it time to dump the Motherboard, CPU and Memory, and go for INTEL's Core 2 Duo? What do you guys think? Is their a FOR SALE section on this forum?
