    Once again, very nice, although you may want to clean that ASUS fan on the mofsets(?).

    It might be worth sticking a fan over the other heatsink for the cpu power fets. Mine gets very hot with as little as 1.48v to the cpu.

    Awesome benching setup tho!!

    I have no clue about how the rad performs. I have winky CM fans (from the Cosmos lol) and yes it is the broken Alphacool1510 that I repaired with swipe.

    RE the fan:Yeah I have a brand new one but not sure where...I was right beside the compressor too lol...

    I usually lay a fan right over it...but I had my hands full as I trudged up from the shop.

    My Wife goes to school some weekends and I spent the past 6 hours with my kids feeding, installing an OS, putting on Dora Explorer (like a two hour marathon),trying to update drivers lol

    It's finally overclocking time...so I brewed up some Joe and now it's time to see what kind if Super Pi I can get. This exact board will run a Q6600 at 4ghz...and an E8400 4.5 or something I forget...so many screenshots..so little time.

    I'd like to see 5 ghz but I don't think this board will get me there. 4.32 currently at 1.472 Vcore and Bluescreening after 5 minutes in Windows lol

    That board should easily do 500+ FSB, have you dropped the multi to see what the max FSB is when the CPU isnt OCed so high? Maybe you have reached a FSB wall within your 45nm processor.

    Here is my P5k at its max OC, my 333MHz ram wasnt stable past 530 or so :(

    The P5E and the P5K are not really the same animal...

    Despite runninga number of different chips I always hit trouble about 475-480 and max out around 488

    Sorry if I wasnt clear but I was refering to my P5K Deluxe board. I've owned 3 of them so far and they all have done 500+ FSB. You might need better MCH cooling or voltage adjustments or tRD relaxed abit to get past your max of 488. 5GHz may not be possible but you should be able to get abit more out of that xeon.

    lol thanks

    I am taking FR@NK's advice and jacking around with a lower multi just to see what this mobo has got.

    EDIT: I was just thinking that it was nice how well Vista 64 Ulti runs on 1 Gig of RAM and a Geforce 6500 :roll:
