ASUS P5N-SLI Problem


Recommended Posts

Asus P5N-E Sli

Nvidia GeForce 6600 GT


Are there any programs I could use to create a report log of my entire system specs?


I don't know of any software like that. I am not trying to be difficult but I need ALL of the info including the Corsair part number. List all of the info on the stickers on the modules. As far as your system specifications, list EVERYTHING you installed inside the case.

Download CPU-z from
and post screen shots of your CPU/Memory/SPD tabs.

Download memtest from
and extract the ISO image. Burn the ISO image to an CD-ROM disk.

With that CPU, you might well be running the DRAM too fast. I would set the bandwidth down and see if you can repeat the errors.


Set the bandwidth to 667Mhz. Boot to the Memtest CD and allow for two full passes. If you pass, then move to entering Windows and testing for CPU stability.

Download OCCT Perestroika for a quick, hard and fast CPU stability test. Download


Run OCCT for the 30 minute stability test. When you can run Memtest stable and OCCT stable, then if issues repeat, you have very likely removed the DRAM and CPU from being at issue in your system and very likely have issues that are external to the DRAM and CPU.

Please make sure that you have the latest bios and load setup defaults and then set the memory Voltage to 2.0 Volts then set the timings manually to the tested settings for the specific module you have, and test the modules one at a time with http://www.memtest.org to be sure one is not failing. If you still get errors, please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it! However, if you get errors with both modules that would suggest some other problem and I would test them in another system or MB to be sure. In addition, with some MB's (Mostly ASUS) you have to disable legacy USB in the bios when running any memory test.

If you are passing memtest and OCCT, and if your system is unstable/rebooting, then your stability issues are external to the DRAM and CPU. I would personally look towards your power supply. There is no need to drop the DRAM or raise the voltage if you are passing with Memtest. After Memtest it should reboot on exit/escape.
