Asus P5QL PRO MOBO and E8400 3.00GHZ C2Duo
« on: July 17, 2009, 05:00:15 pm »
Since my latest blooper on MOBO I got irritated and bought Asus P5QL PRO MOBO and E8400 3.00GHZ C2Duo as a combo until I7 gets cheap enough for me to bother.

This at least will bring me joy for a good time......
Not done setting it up just yet, but I will be during the evening.

Which CPU did you had before then?

Actually it was the E6750.

Quite good that too.
Stock speed at 2.66Ghz.
But the Abit Ab9 PRO had 1066FSB as stock and needed to be patched to work halfly on 1333. Not a good option and did slow things down a bit on other things aswell.

This MOBO feels very much better right away. I did research it and I did go to my regular shop this time, i can thrust them.
He gave me this and a 750 SLI asus card to choose from. i took this as i need not SLI and it was cheaper. about £80 or so. the CPU I got for about £ 150 I think it was. So not to bad really.

Well, my mobo seems to get very high systems temps. It goes fast up to 45 degrees when it idles at 31. I am using speedfan to monitor, as they show same temps as truetemp.
I have one 124mm fan in the rear of my case(sucktion), I have one 124mm fan in the side of my case (blowing towards the GFX and northbridge) ,The 8800GFX card has a good fan on its own.
Cannot remember my cpu cooler. it is a big sucker. blue orb something.

Everything running high. I have disableled the BIOS settings Q-fan thingy. Using Sppedfan to do speeds. Still overheating. Maybe not overheating, but running hot on demanding games.
I have read it takes 50 degrees C without issues, but I am not at all used to this high temps. And I do not like it. So I ordered some stuff.

My new specs will be this.

CPU: E8400 3.00 Ghz C2D
MOBO: Asus P5QL PRO (P43 chipset)
RAM: 4GB 880ddr2 (2 dual sticks)
GFX: 8800 GTS PCX 512
PCU: Silverpower 650 Watts
CASING: Coolermaster Centaurion
FAN: 1 124mm rear-mounted outlet, 1 124mm front inlet, 3 Side mounted inlet ANTEC Big Boy 200mm TriCool Fan.
FAN CONTROLLER: Zalmann for controll of 4 3pin fans and 2 2 pin fans.


I hope this should do good.

I will picture it when it is done.

i will prob make a plexiglas sidepanel and mount it up like that. Should look good.

Sounds good :)
I have done the sidepanel also from plexiglas.. did a hole on the sidepanel though.. but on my next case it will be fully plexiglas.
(simply so that i have full freedom to mount the sidefans.. its possible to drop gfx and nb temps enormously with couple well placed fans..)

Damn, I thought I did a post here about the P43 chipset being not so good for OCing, but imo being a better chipset than the 750i.

Is that 50 degrees Celcius your CPU temp? Because that's not alarming then.

I am not going to OC this one. Maybe to 3.3 at some point, but really not at all needed. It runs like a charm.

50 degrees is not my CPU. that never touches more than 45-48. It is my SYSTEM temp.
But it will all be sorted with new fans and the controllers.

ive got the same mobo and same cpu (with stock cooling) and its pretty good, usually sitting around 20-30 idle and 50 if im playing something realy hungry. To be weary off tho is i dont know about you but i cant put my computer into sleep... it simply wont work. Then i cant get it out and resetting won't fix it and im forced to reset the bios to get it to boot again... this happened to me and my friend with the same mobo so watch out! And i don't know how your liking it but i feel its a pretty average at best mobo, no particular reason, just doesn't feel that great to me.

Nah.. It is ok as long as you run stock, I have no issues now... 200MM fan fixed my issues :)

Running MOBO 26-29 degrees IDLE and 38-40 on heavy load.

CPU is the same. never above 47 degrees C. Thats ARMA 2 on full load.

200mm! very nice, ive only got a 180 at the back as exhaust, 120 on the side, a crappy 80 at the top and ive heard rumors of one being at the front of my case but i wouldnt know as i cant hear or see one lol.

ArmaII is a hungry game too, oh is it me or is being healed pretty much impossible in that game, they all run over to me flashing in blue, then do nothing and run off again...

Sometimes :)

But I never play SP games.  Always MP. And we have a big squad here now...

We are planning some inter community fights soon......  Same about your loctation as you would have enjoyed that for sure.
You have gotta howl for healing btw.   think it is 0-5-4 or something cannot remember...

Tell me about it! I love tactical team shooters, can't be beaten enjoyment wise. Ping would be in the 400's probably which just kills the fun really. And yea i just keep hitting those till someone finally comes to my rescue  :hats off:
