    Here's another one:

    P4 3.7ghz Extreme Edition 1066mhz fsb
    P5N32-SLI MoBO
    2 512 sticks of matched Crucial RAM
    2 Maxtor 300GB Hard Drives in RAID 0
    2 Gigabyte GeForce 6800 GT's in SLI
    1 Pioneer DVD R/RW Dual Layer
    550w Antec Neo HE psu

    Originally built the machine on the P5ND2-Deluxe motherboard. Had problems when I enabled SLI in the Nvidia control panel and played games. Thing would shut down after like 5 minutes. If I only enabled one card it worked fine even though the second card was installed and powered. I did have intermittent boot up and flakey LAn problems though. Changed the Hard Drives, Reformatted multiple times, swapped psu's from the original Antec True 480 ro the PC P&C 510 SLI and nothing changed the problem. Even tweaked vcore settingg to no avail.

    I finally decided to upgradde to the P5N32-SLI thinking that the boot up and LAN problems might suggest a problem there plus I wanted dual 16x slots. Well I found out the need for the 8 pin 12v connector and went to Frys to but the Neo Power HE. Put it all together and the damn thing shuts off after like 5 minutes. Cant even get into Windows setup.

    Could this really be a power problem? The shutdown seems to be quicker the more you keep trying to refire the board suggesting a heat related problem. I've also tried unplugging everything but the motherboard power and video card but it still shuts off. Has anyone else had luck moving to a 600+ watt psu? I'd really go nuts if I bought my 4th psu and it still didnt work.

    Switched to an Enermax Liberty 620 and had the box running for an hour and a half today. Seems like the problem is fixed but during all the testing I seem to have fried my primary PCie slot. If I try to start up the machine with a vid card in that slot I get nothing but a Long and three short beeps. Switching to the secondary slot allows the machine to boot fine.

    ok heres the thing
    i installed a Zalman Heat Fan over the CPU and used the silver heatsink paste over it.
    the machine has not caused any trouble for almost a month now.
    then only issue i have is that my second dvd drive doesnt appear sometimes in my hardware properties, so i have scan for hardware and it pops up, i still have not found a solution for that
    but now the pc runs quiter and much smoother
    by the way here are my specs

    ASUS P5N32 SLI Deluxe MOBO
    Pentium D 840 3.2 GHz
    2 Gigs PQI Turbo ram DDR2
    300 GB Hard Drive
    Geforce 7800 GT
    2 Optical Drives
    Powered by Silverstone 600Watts of power
    Zalman CNPS9500 LED Fan

    RMA'd the motherboard, got a new one and things have been working smoothly for the past month and a half.... Damn quirky power problems.

    could the primary and secondary slots have been mixed up?

    You mean me mixing them up? Nope, they are color coded and I would have to totally disregard the manual to mess that up. If you mean the bios somehow swapping them, which I doubt is physically possible, I'll never know. Got a new one in exchange and its all good now.

    I have the same problem guys. Here are my specs:

    ASUS P5N32-SLI Deluxe mobo
    Pentium D 830
    Antec TPII-550 PSU
    Corsair PC2 5400 1 gb memory
    2 WDC WD3200KS hard drives (Raid 0)
    2 eVGA 7800gt's (identical)

    My computer powers down having SLI enabled while gaming. It also shuts down anytime I try to do a benchmark program like 3dmark or Aquamark. After a power down, I usually have to boot into safe mode and disable the 2nd video card. I disable SLI and everything is fine. The computer runs great without SLI :(

    Is there a concrete solution for this? Or do I need to RMA my motherboard?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Oh No!!!!

    Just bought an ASUSP5N32 SLI De Luxe 2nd hand at a good price and now I find this problem. It seems the seller was having the same problem. Said that when he checked the CPU voltage was 1 volt less than that actually set.

    This sound to me like a PSU problem..maybe coupled with a heat problem. Has ANYBODY out there got this thing working properly yet.

    I have to buy a new power supply anyway so I might as well buy something that looks like it can cope with the needs of the board. Any suggestions? I'd better make sure I get the heat issue covered at the same time.

    As I did not really buy it for the SLI feature maybe I'll be lucky and by the time I decide to use SLI some genius will have solved the problems...

    Come on ASUS!!!

    Has anyone been able to figure this issue out yet? I currently own a Pentium D 930 (3.0 ghz) 65nm chip and i wanted to buy this board. I was looking to buy the Antec TP-II 550 550W EPS12V/ATX12V PSU which is sli ready and has the 8pin adaptor but i saw somoene on here still has the problem with that. So how do i get this thing working 100% on the 930 series chip? Even though its not what i want should i just go for the asus p5wd2 board?
