So I just picked up this board to pair it with a e6600 and notice a few weird anomalies.

1) Running WCPUID will reboot the machine
2) Running coretemp beta will reboot the machine
3) PC Wizard voltage for CPU shows 0.10
4) SiSoft Sandra can't check out the mainboard info

Shall I assume either the motherboard or cpu is flakey? I ran Prime95 for over 5 hours and didn't have any issues.

Curious of what you guys think.

Hehe... same here

I have P5N32-E SLI Plus 650i

WCPUID = reboot
Sandra = no mobo info
CoreTemp runs fine I but don't know if it's the same version = my version is 0.95

What BIOS are you at?
I'm at 0501

I just put the latest one on... makes me feel better knowing I'm not alone!
I checked the event viewer and I'm getting a weird bugcheck failure.

Somebody apparently is a bit sensitive to having certain bios addresses probed........ :)

If it's rebooting when monitoring software "probes" it then there must be some high level memory addresses that it doesn't like sharing.

Did you try turning off the built-in intel anti-virus protection? (I don't remember what it's called but it's probably listed in the same area as the virtualization in bios).

Well I fiddled with some things and it turns out its actually a BSOD with the error in file nrkctl32.sys which is part of WCPUID and crashes out. So I'm thinking WCPUID won't work with 680i boards.

** NOTE ** I've also noticed in CPU-Z that it shows my cpu running at 266x9 and in everest home edition its 343x7
** NOTE ** I've now gotten a hold of Everest Ultimate Edition and it shows 266x9 with 1.3v

Seems PC Wizard, Everest HE, and Sisoft don't work well with some 680i boards.
