  1. Well actually Tony's Bios is one of the "oldest" you will find. That date is July 2004 Yes, it is for all memory and I have an OCDB entry with it using GSkill RAM here http://www.diy-street.com/forum/showpost.p...4&postcount=282 It does limit the percentage of VID to 113%, but as I said a lot of us are very happy even if it is an old Bios. May be a good place to start and then try a Taipan "merlin" Bios later. Some good info in the MBM5 Thread. Check the link in my sig.
  2. Welcome to the forum! Unfortunately Merlin's native tongue is NOT English. So his descriptions have been minimal although I know it is also on a German Forum. I personally still use Tony's 704-2bta. It seems to work well with almost all memory. To me, Merlin's latest version seems to have a lot of the things that NEO incorporated into his BIOS. Merlin has been "modding" bioses for a long time so I would bet it is good. But too little information on this bios so I've not tried it. Any Bios from 6/23 will work for your Dual Core Opty. (And do not assume that a newer Bios is always better for you) What Bios are you currently running?
  3. That sounds like a pretty kewl idea. How about $20 each using the same goal of 1st $200, 2nd $100 & 3rd $50.00 with $150 going to DIY-Street. 25 guys should be easy. I do like the contest/rewards idea.

  5. You're probably right. But that wasn't the main point of my post Terry:)
  6. Wow, I am truly surprised to hear any of you guys talking like this. Yes, I know you are going to give me the "just facing reality" comeback, but it's certainly something we need to talk about changing. Yes, times are tough for everyone. Money is tight and folks are watching their wallets. (Some of the banner links still don't work for me) Where are we at? How much dinero do we need for the next payment? If it takes giving/asking for donations I am more than happy to contribute. Lot of sites ask for donations, we shouldn't be any different. Think of all the "drives" on NPR. It's what they need to do to survive. Those raffle deals seem to work at other sites, have we looked into that? Now please don't take any offense at this cause I think you guys have done a great job administering the site. I'm an oldfaht and I'm sure I have different "hot buttons" that other members or internet trawlers. As far as the Front Page (which I never visit as it doesn't change very much and nothing that really grabs my eye) I have a couple of personal preferences. Pretty sure most members have DIY-street open on the forums page like I do. I like pics. I know the anal retentives among us want everything as professional as can be, but maybe we can loosen it up a little. I'd prefer some links to some of the great stuff already on the forums. Love to see some bigger pics of radodrill's and mknwatt's acrylic and CM690 mods with links to them. Hale, I'd love to see a link to the Official Case mod thread there. Angry's XP tweaking guide should also be on the front page. Praz's info at www.edgeofstability.com is very link worthy as well, even if it is above the heads of some visitors. Thunda's Overclocking guide. The OCDB definitely should have a link. Best places to shop on line. "Good Joke" thread. Or even "Ask Sharp, the Memory expert". Maybe even a link to "how to set up MBM5 on your DFI mobo" linkage. My point is that we need to tag front page to the killer stuff already posted. (And that should include the "For Sale" section) I also think the "Vista sucks" and "DFI eat's dog doo-doo" mentality isn't doing us any good. Too many potential new members may have products we personally hate and if we turn them off, they be gone probably forever. I may be a little gay/gaye/gai on this but I love those little boxes with "latest posts" and links in them. Rambling - sorry, another senior moment. How about a link to a "Brit", "Canuck", or "Aussie" section".
  7. Did you "start" the plug-in? You'd get more help in the main thread or feel free to PM
  8. CPU in MBM is measuring a diode and CoreTemp measures the DTS (digital thermal sensor). Two very different measurements. So NO Bladeslinger7x, the DFI NF4 version posted here can't read either core, much less both of them. And thanks speedeuphoria for helpin' out! Best advice I can give is to: a) keep CPU temps under 50C in MBM5 and under 60C in Coretemp when using a 939. B) never trust any monitoring software Lot of variables, especially on these temp measurements. Simply having two "monitoring" programs at once can jizz things up. *Added a 1st Post/front page link to the "snugmeister's" post at #1917 cause it was really good. A gold star will be sent to him later Jebus, started this thread 3 years ago. Better insert a very memorable quote right here: Let's go watch the Revenge of the Nerds' video one more time (from the first link in the thread) And here's the words, so everybody can sing along Sung by Lamar Latrell, Tri-Lam: Clap your hands everybody, and everybody clap your hands. We're Lambda Lambda Lambda and Omega Mu. (clap, clap, clap) We come here on stage tonight to do our show for you. We got a rockin rhythm and a hi-tech sound that'll make you move your body down to the ground. We got Poindexter on the violin, and Lewis and Gilbert will be joinin in. We got Booger Presley on the mean guitar and a rap by little ol' me Lamar. We got Takashi beating on his gong, the boys and the mu's are clapping along. (clap, clap, clap) And just when you thought, ya seen it all, along comes a Lambda four foot tall. So won't ya come on out here on the floor, so we can move our bodies, like never before.
  9. Shrunk the font size a little. Keep the great humor coming fariss!
  10. Thread title change. I just bought the memory so all items have been SOLD and pics removed. I've done a number of deals with him. He's good people. jlqrb (pronounced just like it reads ) is looking fora 939 DFI or ASUS SLI mobo and a heatsink. Let me know if a title change is needed.
  11. I think the rest of the mods and AG would agree it's time to sticky this. Nice work
  12. Gonna stay inside today. The -53 Wind Chill has the oldfaht worried
  13. I actually like the steel and al-u-min-ium styles. Steel is heavier but it doesn't ring as much. Even if the case is all aluminum by the time you add all the HDDs and the PSU, the weight advantage is gone. Aluminum has a better "look" and "feel" in my opinion. Ideal for front panels. You are going to need 270 degree or "left angle" connectors for than connection. look here http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/ind...index&cPath=353
  14. from VR forums http://forums.vr-zone.com/showthread.php?t=234820 bootable ISO http://www.memtest.org/download/2.00/memtest86+-2.00.iso.zip
  15. Looking for the E8400 temp reports as well.
  16. Very kewl. Think you are gonna like the UT LP P35 T2R board. Keep those great pics coming.
  17. Bump for great prices and really fast shipping. Great Trader!
