  1. Yeah, it's back up! Turns out the buyer could not pay for it. it's decent shape, nothing wrong. The SIL 3114 raid works great. Comes with a Evercool north bridge cooler, works great. Used with my opteron 165 and oc's well past 3ghz and has a preset for 2.6/2.8/3 all stable. I want $60+s/h Paypal Only!

    7.8 finals and Vista SP1 Discuss.
  3. It's liquid metal, it'll work better then AS5 but you'll loose in the fact you can only use it so many times due to it being a cutable pad. They would be good for video card GPUs and NB dies... dunno about bigger CPU's like the C2D

    The temps are crazy with this card... 42c idle and 52c load?!

    2600XT run

    I have a X-Connect. It has enough trouble with a X1950XT or 7900GT's. It screems when it's under heavy load.

    Well to get a 8800 I need a new PSU. So it adds up to more then I can afford. These cards are not high draw, hence why I went with them.

    2600XT run

    I had a 7600GT back in the day, I ran it at 800mhz core and 1650mhz memory and hit 4800 in 3dmark at 75c with a low wattage tec and FS-V7 Then I got a 8600GT, and the drivers were fail in every way possible. I ~somehow~ managed to get it stable at 800/2000 But just look at the temps, with the SAME tec plate as the 7600 and a VF900-CU this time. The gain? 400 points in 3dmark, now that' with 260mhz overclock on the core and 600mhz on the memory... somehow this card get's 200 points for 57mhz overclock so ... I got so sick of this dang message I bought this, so far it's great, decided to go corssfire once I sell that 8600GT when it get's back from RMA after killing my motherboard and memory.

    All settings were default And, the ever popular 3dmark's here's fear Seems about right, what do you guys think? All settings were untouched unless marked.
  9. Sounds like it needs a fan, most of the GF4's did not have one. Like it was said here, attach one with zip ties or rubber bands.
  10. I'll give that a shot next time I attempt to overclock
  11. Yeah, don't classy lady about it unless you want to buy me another And they are, 128bit, dual channel Nothing in the database about PC3200 ballistix

  13. Well, they told me to post it here! My sig lies, it's only 1gb right now. Trying to get some good clocks.. stable and am having one hell of a time doing it. I followed this guide for my ram DRAM Timings: **Dram Frequency Set (Mhz)**= 100(Mhz)(1/02), 120(Mhz)(3/05), 133(Mhz)(2/03), 140(Mhz)(7/10), 150(Mhz)(3/04), 166(Mhz)(5/06), 180(Mhz)(9/10), 200(Mhz)(1/01).- This is simply the Dram ratio option. This option sets the Dram ratio. With a64, the ratios are not always written in stone, for example 166(5/06) isn’t always 5/6 ratio. You can refer to this chart for the exact ratios (they may not all be right, and thanks to Oskar_WU for his help with the chart) Large Influence on Bandwidth/Stability. **Command Per Clock (CPC)**= Auto, Enable(1T), Disable(2T), this is also called Command rate. It is best, in most cases to Disable for (2T) w/ 2x512 Ram modules. Large Influence on Bandwidth/Stability. PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU ARE USING A "CO" REV. CPU THIS OPTION (CPC) WILL NOT APPEAR IN BIOS. THIS IS BECAUSE "CO" REV. CPU'S DO NOT SUPPORT 2T TIMING, ONLY 1T. IF YOU HAVE A "CG" REV. CPU, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SELECT EITHER AUTO, 1T, OR 2T. *Cas Latency Control (tCL)**= 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5 3, 3.5, 4, 4.5. I would suggest only using, 2, 2.5, and 3. Added Note: This is the first timing that most ram companies rate their ram with. For example, you might see ram rated at 3-4-4-8 @275mhz. this is the 3, in than situation. 2 yields the best performance, but, unless you have either Winbond BH-5, or BH-6, it is unlikely you will be able to reach you maximum over clock at CAS2. CAS3 is usually yields the best stability/over clock. PLEASE NOTE; IF YOU HAVE WB-BH-5/6, YOU MOST LIKELY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO USE CAS3, AND SOME MAY NOT BE ABLE TO USE CAS2.5, MY BH-6 WILL NOT POST AT CAS2.5, OR CAS3, IT WILL ONLY POST AT CAS2. Slight Influence on Bandwidth / Large Influence on Stability. **RAS# to CAS# delay (tRCD)**= 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7. I would suggest only using 2-5. Added Note: This is the second timing that most ram companies rate there ram with. For example, you might see ram rated at [email protected] this is the 4, in than situation. 2 yields the best performance, and 4-5 (5 is usually overkill) yields the best over clock. Most rams will not be able to use 2, and reach their max OC. Large Influence on Bandwidth/ Stability. *Min RAS# active timing (tRAS)*= 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15. I would suggest only 00, and 5-10. Added Note: This is the fourth timing that most ram companies rate there ram with. For example, you might see ram rated at 3-4-4-8 @275mhz. this is the 8, in that situation. This is a much debated timing. Some may argue that 00, 05, or 10 is the faster/most stable. But I really think there isn’t a right answer for this one, it all depends on your ram. But, if you need a good starting point, usually most/all ram can achieve their max OC on 10 tRAS, even if one of the other settings is faster. Slight Influence on Bandwidth/Stability. **Row Precharge timing (tRP)**= 0,1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7. I would suggest using only 2-5. Added Note: This is the third timing that most ram companies rate there ram with. For example, you might see ram rated at 3-4-4-8 @275mhz. this is the 4, in that situation. 2 yields the best performance, and 4-5(5 is usually overkill) yields the best over clock. Most ram will not be able to use 2, and reach there max OC. Large Influence on Bandwidth/Stability. **Row Cycle Time(tRC)**= 7-22 in 1.0 increments. 7 yields the best performance, 15-17(i think 17 is overkill) yields the best stability/over clock. I would start at 15, and work your way down from there. Also, 7 is usually much too tight, for most ram. Large Influence on Bandwidth/Stability. **Row Refresh cycle time (tRFC)**= 9-24 in 1.0 increments. This timing is usually always set to 2-4 clocks higher that the tRC. 10 yields the best performance (well 9 would, but 9 is too tight), and 17-19(I think 19 is overkill) yields the best stability/over clock. I would start at 17 and work your way down. Large Influence on Bandwidth/Stability. *Row to Row Delay(also called Ras to Ras delay)(tRRD)*= 0-7 in 1.0 increments. 00 yields the best performance and 4 (I think anything above that is overkill) yields the best stability/over clock. I know that 00 sounds odd, but it works great for me, even at 260 MHz Slight Influence on Bandwidth/Stability. *Write Recovery Time (tWR)*= 2, 3. 2 yields better performance, and 3 yields better stability/over clock. Slight Influence on Bandwidth/Stability. *Write to read Delay (tWTR)*= 1, 2. 1 yields better performance and 2 yields better stability/over clock. Slight Influence on Bandwidth/ Stability. *Read to Write delay (tRTW)*= 1-8 in 1.0 increments. 1 yields better performance, and 4(I think any above 4 is overkill) yields better stability/over clock. Slight Influence on Bandwidth/Stability. Refresh Period (tREF)*= 0032-4708 in variable increments. 1552= 100mhz(?.?us) 2064= 133mhz(?.?us) 2592= 166mhz(?.?us) 3120= 200mhz(?.?us)(my sweat spot w/ Bh-6 at 250+mhz , your mileage may vary) --------------------- 3632= 100mhz(?.?us) 4128= 133mhz(?.?us) 4672= 166mhz(?.?us) 0064= 200mhz(?.?us) --------------------- 0776= 100mhz(?.?us) 1032= 133mhz(?.?us) 1296= 166mhz(?.?us) 1560= 200mhz(?.?us) --------------------- 1816= 100mhz(?.?us) 2064= 133mhz(?.?us) 2336= 166mhz(?.?us) 0032= 200mhz(?.?us) --------------------- 0388= 100mhz(15.6us) 0516= 133mhz(15.6us) 0648= 166mhz(15.6us) 0780= 200mhz(15.6us) --------------------- 0908= 100mhz(7.8us) 1032= 133mhz(7.8us) 1168= 166mhz(7.8us) 0016= 200mhz(7.8us) --------------------- 1536= 100mhz(3.9us) 2048= 133mhz(3.9us) 2560= 166mhz(3.9us) 3072= 200mhz(3.9us) --------------------- 3684= 100mhz(1.95us) 4196= 133mhz(1.95us) 4708= 166mhz(1.95us) 0128= 200mhz(1.95us) I suppose that the tREF, like the tRAS, is not an exact science. it seems that the 15.6us, and 3.9us settings seem to work good, and that the 1.95us settings give usual results (extremely low bandwidth for me) The unknown (?.?us) are kind of shot in the dark, for me, out of all the setting 3120 gave the best balance of performance, and stability, but I feel this will greatly vary from one ram to another Slight Influence on Stability. Write CAS# Latency (tWCL)**= 1-8, I can only post using auto or 1. If you have had any successes with this timing please post here. Added Note by RGone… #5 in setting works on my board with “any” brand or size and speed of memory! Large Influence on Stability. *DQS skew Control*= Auto, Increase Skew, Decrease Skew. Increase for performance, and Decrease for Stability. Slight Influence on Bandwidth/Stability. *DQS Skew Value*= 0-255 in 1.0 increments. This is the value that is Increased or Decrease when you set the DQS skew control. This is not a very sensitive timing I would try 50-255. Slight Influence on Bandwidth/Stability. DRAM Drive Strength**= Level 1-4 I would only suggest using Level 1 or 3, if you have CPC enabled. With CPC, anything above level 1 gave me extreme instability, some reported that level 3 work good with CPC enabled, although this didn’t work for me. Some others have had success w/ using level 2-4 if CPC is disabled. Large Influence on Stability. *Max Async. Lantency*= 00.0-15.0 in 1.0 increments. I would suggest trying 5.0-10.0 Slight Influence on Bandwidth/Stability. * Read Preamble time*= 02.0-09.5 nano sec, in 0.5 increments. I would suggest 4.0-7.0 depending on ram. Slight Influence on Bandwidth/Stability. *Idle Cycle Limit*= . 000-256 in varied increments. I would try 16-32 clocks. Slight Influence on Bandwidth/Stability. *Dynamic Counter*= Auto, Enable, Disable. Enable for very slight performance increase. Disable for slight stability increase. Slight Influence on Bandwidth/Stability. *R/W Queue Bypass*= 2x, 4x, 8x, 16x. I would suggest using 8x or 16x. 2x or 4x for max OC. Slight Influence on Bandwidth/Stability. *Bypass Max*= 0x-7x in 1.0 increments. I would suggest 5x-7x for max performance. 0x-4x for max OC. Slight Influence on Bandwidth/Stability. *32 byte Granulation= Auto, Disable (8burst), enable (4burst). Try Disable (8burst) for more bandwidth. Try enabling 4 burst for more stability Slight Influence on Bandwidth. Kinda stable up to 2.5ghz and 1.32v core.

  14. It would not even work with a OCZ gamesteam 750watt. It's seems to have started working again. Is there a way i can RMA it?
  15. Okay doing it again, 12hour reset did not work.... can i RMA it? i don't think i can... last few days its been giveing me nothing but problems, i even think it killed my video card.
  16. okay, started it back up without a video card and it went to the second LED... all i have to say is "THANK BABY JESUS!"
  17. Already in the works. Been clearing for a hour or so now.
  18. Well I was testing out a Athlon 3000+ and (surprisingly good results, 3.1ghz) when i went to put my Opteron 165 back into it and rebooted (without changing my settings back) and it booted and i entered the bios and loaded optimized defaults and then rebooted, i hit save and exit and the PC shut off... i said "wth" and turned it back on and it worked, then I set my ram to stock voltage, 2.8v. So i turned it on again and it posted... I saw the LanParty logo and i walked out of the room to get a soda... when i returned i found my computer was not showing anything on screen and i looked inside and saw the four LED's of doom. Right now it's running a cmos reset on the box. I attempted to boot this with 3 CPU's.. all the same... so I'm sure it's not the CPU. I tried it with this Ultra, a OCZ and stole my brothers thermaltake and it's all the same... anyone have an idea? if i don't get the rest of my Shader code done I'm going to get fired.. so anyone post ideas! :sad:
  19. Did you set the SLi jumpers? if it has any.
  20. my ASUS K8V SE DE and a 3400+ was doing this.. just threw it away and hooked up a Duron until this system got here.
  21. my PSU can power a furby. Sounds like the board is damaged... try holding the power button down to get it to shut off then try a PCI video card if it turns off. (board did the same thing turns out the CPU had a bent pin)
  22. What is your PCI-E bandwidth? also, take a shot of this screen and post it http://i25.photobucket.com/albums/c66/PaRa...eal/music-1.jpg
