    Ive just noticed the PSU. Not much point continuing until thats replaced, you could end up frying the lot.

    Better than loosing the lot and replacing it all
    There are some really good Psu's for great prices just look around, maybe a Corsair 520w if u can get ahold of 1, or just some other reliable known brand. U dont need to go crazy though

    Absolutely. Hope I can find a good unit around town. North Borneo is quite outdated when comes to IT products...

    I did a small overclock when I read your guide before I got a stable OC of 2.8Ghz.

    Today I did a bit more OC'ing. I have gradually been stepping up the FSB 25Mhz at a time. I have managed to get up to 375MHz but when I get to 400Mhz Windows fails to boot. The PC passes POST as the PC beeps. It restarts itself when it gets to the Windows boot up screen.

    So I though I might need to apply a bit more VCore so I set it one notch higher to 1.3375V, before it was set to 1.3250V.

    SO I have set the BIOS back to the settings that worked before (listed below).

    What would you suggest me to do?

    These are my current settings:
    CPU Frequency: 375MHz
    DRAM Frequency: DDR2-750MHz (this changes as I up the CPU Freq.)
    PCI-Express Frequency: Auto
    PCI Clock Sync Mode: 33.33Mhz
    Spread Spectrum: Disabled
    Memory Voltage: 1.9V
    CPU VCore Voltage: 1.3250V
    FSB Termination Voltage: Auto
    NB Voltage: Auto
    SB Vcore: Auto
    ICH Voltage: Auto

    You can see what Hardware I have if you click the My System link to left of my post.

    Thank you for any help.

    Hi there,
    I got a E4300 and P5N-E SLI, with OCZ Platinum XTC REV.2 DDR2-800 CL4-4-4-15.
    I have followed this guide and my
    core speed is now 3000
    with FSBRAM 1:1 and correct 4-4-4-15 timing set.
    I did the Orthos test and it stopped @ 7 hour.
    So I am not sure what I should do now. And the voltage is set on auto and in CPU-Z it is showing 1.44.
    So is v1.44 save?
    and also
    idle temp: 30
    Orthos running: 55
    This temp is based on Core Temp.

    have a read back a few pages in this thread, theres some info on overclocking the P5N its probably just some stuff needs disabling.

    Temps look fine. Also try slightly higher mhz, you might just be at a point in the fsb range that isnt stable.

    The P5N-E suffers really badly with vdroop, so you often need to set the voltage a bit higher than you might be comfortable with. Also set your RAM and northbridge voltages manually. Their usually too low when on AUTO.
