  1. You didn't give much info...... I suggest that next time you are much more descriptive as to the specs of your system.
  2. Asus P5N-E SLI mb
    Intel Duo Core e6850 @ 3.0 ghz
    4 g Patriot Dual-Channel ddr2 ramm
    Ati Radeon 5850 1 gig vidcard
    Audigy 4 SE soundcard
    Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit
  3. You still left out what psu you are currently running as well cooling. Start by raising you fsb to 350 (700ddr2 if properly synched) and post back when you are done. Also make sure the chipset remains somewhat cool and not scolding hot. I used to own the p5n-sli (nforce4).
  4. 600W Ultra V-Series PSU & Stock Intel HSF, also have 2 120mm fans both running (on side of case & back)
  5. The stock cooler is crap and wont be of mush good when you start going for 3.4ghz+ as for the psu that brand is rather shady. Either than that you should get 3.2ghz with out any issue so long your ram is properly clocked and timed.
  6. Ultra is not a shady brand, they have made some of the best power supplies (x3 series were some of the best) along with holding the patent for modular psu's. That said they do make some crappy psu's as well. The v-series ones are about average depending on the model, some are horrible on ripple suppression. I don't know why you would want a psu without cable sleeves though.
  7. "use google" would be simplest instructions I can give.

    Sure :sarcastic: I prefer Enermax, the one I used to have had metal sleeves (woven) and two thermal controlled fans with one that can be adjusted plus it was quite heavy. It even had better quality paint than most cars.

    As long as there is good airflow in the case, the stock heatsink is fine for upto 3.6, it's twice as thick as a stock E8400 heatsink.
    I used to own a P5N-E SLI ( 2 of them ) with an E6850 and the stock cooler.
