Idle on Air but I think its more accurate than core temps given my ambient is 18c. According to people at XS its the core temps that are screwed up on most boards.What kind of cooling is that? No way are those accurate with that voltage under air.
I was considering the IP35Pro. It is well priced and a great OC'er. But I went onto the Abit forums and there is one person having issues. Could be a noob though.
But, I don't have any LGA775 procs. lying around to do a bios flash with and I've got that severe upgrade itch. (Upgrading from Opty 170 and NF4 combo)
Right now I'm looking at the Gigabyte P35-DS3R mobo, cuz it's cheap and I don't need crossfire support, but need the PCI slots (raid controllers and discreet sound).
I've been reading around and the temperature issue is a hit or miss not only with the IP35 series but also some other motherboards as well (other brands). The IP35 series runs the chip fine with no problem with a BIOS update (some say the temperature readings are fixed). According to the Abit forums they are working on BIOS's for the IP35-E and IP35 Pro for 100% support of the E8000 series.So because 1 person out of how many has issues you wont get an ip35?
ip35 dont need a flash to support the new 8*** series as far as i have read
I also believe that the DES versions of the motherboards are compatible, as they're newer revisions.I can't confirm this, but I would be surprised if the latest Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS4 didn't work too. It's the newer version of the Gigabyte GA-P35-DS4 + their Dynamic Energy Saver (DES) stuff.
You don't need a floppy drive if you have a USB flash drive, just google "Boot from a USB flash drive", you need to download an HP Tool and then select it in BIOS and then you can update your BIOS with itI got my IP35 pro and everything booted just fine unfortunately it seems I got the one IP35 motherboard and E8400 in existence that doesn't overclock for shit. I have 4 gigs of Mushkin black label DDR2 1066 that runs stable at 1050 (2.25 volts) but no matter what I do I can't get my FSB above 360MHz (even with my RAM at 800MHz) without getting a blue screen when I boot into windows.
The thing that pisses me off the most is I don't know if it's the RAM, CPU or Motherboard and my dumbass forgot to buy a floppy drive and I'm completely broke for the next two weeks so I can't run MEMtest.
P.S. Should I start a new thread asking for help and if so what kind of info would you guys need to supply that help?
Any idea about the Asus P5K-Deluxe (w/ WiFi-AP)?? I'm considering the E8400 for my new build.Asus P5K-E
Asus P5K Premium Wifi Edition 2.02 Bios and above
Asus P5E (Don't know if I have the right model # Asus X38 mobo, like the formula)
Asus P5E-VM HDMI
No shit. I found dozens of hits on Google, but every single damn one was asking a similar question and not a single damn one got a solid answer. It's like no one has a clue or simple refuse to answer the question.... out of all the forums i havent seen any news on this combo, If noone wants to type , at least post a link to where it is or something...
I wouldn't see any reason for it not to. Check Newegg to look at the board layouts. If they're the same, less a few integrated features (ie. Firewire, extra SATA ports, USB ports, etc.), while maintaining the same power regulation circuitry, then they should OC just as well.I hope the PK5 Premium OC's as well as the Deluxe!
