  1. Uh, a quick question....

     

    Have you enabled Sata in the bios? There are a few settings that may need reviewage....................

     

    Also, just so you will know, more than likely your new drives are not formatted, and that in itself can cause some problems.......

     

     

    And you may want to cruise this link RE: DFI power supplies...

     

    http://www.diy-street.com/forum/showthread...ht=power+supply

     

    Specifically, your particular PS is NOT listed as a DFI acceptable unit, you may want to check further on the PS with a simple search here.

     

    good luck,

  2. ???????????????????????

     

    I guess everything people said just flew over your head.

     

    Download TMods ISO, burn a CD, set the bios to boot to CD, flash the bios of your choice (carefull, make sure it is for your SPECIFIC board)....

     

    here is the link:

    All you have to do is click the mousey, sit back, and it will take care of itself...

     

    then do #6 on your list, and then you can fiddle faddle again....

     

    about the only thing we can't do for you is the actual flashing.............

     

    easy as pie....

  3. dude, you got PC3200 which is rated for 200MHZ runnings, you got 236 already (18% overclock).....you didn't mention whether you tried a littlle more juice to the ram....

     

    and, as much as you may want the 240, you may be at its limit.

     

    have you tried one at a time (stick of ram) to see if one is a dog clocker, the ram can only run as fast as the slowest stick (error free) with both in use(duh)....

     

    just some thoughts...

     

    laterz..


  4. the Adata stuffs is awesome, got some 4 gig of the PC6400 running DDR 960 in an Asrock Dual SataII w/AM2 riser card on the test bench....

     

    as far as your MB, trust me, you throw your MB description in the search section here, over at Extreme and OC forums, just to mention a couple, and you will get so many hits you will be busy for hours reviewing all the data....

     

    and all the informations you need will be contained therein....make it easy on yourself and get to reading...

  5. how much sticky and previous postage reading have you done so far???? i say this because that MB you have is popular,

     

    many use it, have reported their clocks and settings, heck, i don't even have that board and still have read a lot here and on other the BBS's, RE: clocking, ram settings, etc.......

     

    maybe that is why you didn't get a quick answer......and the search button will bring up lots of stuff if you just copy and paste the MB description shown in your sig...happy hunting:)

  6. i have had fans that have fubared so badly before it tanked the OS, once replaced, everything went back to normal.....

     

    here is the clue that lead me to this conclusion...

     

    "and when I put my finger on the fan and stopped it, the tone disappeared."

     

    this is a classic example of interference created by the bad CPU fan, causing the system to flake........

     

    your PS choice is fine power wise.

     

    had case fans do this to my system and i have had several customer's rigs that have had this happen over the years, simple fix, just annoying as h3ll.....

  7. this smells heavily of fubared ram timings......damn DFI's can drive you nuts with certain rams.

     

    reinstalling the OS over and over agian isn't going to solve the problem.

     

    the other thing that bothers me is that you sometimes don't get a post upon restart, that indicates either ram, voltages, clocks, or a combination thereof are causing the problems.

     

    ATI drivers can also cause some very strange behaviors, some of the recent issues are less than stellar, and using Vista 64 bit is a crap shoot, using Vista for ANYTHING right now is dodgy, the first SP update for Vista is scheduled for end of 07, beginning of 08, a full year after its debut.

     

    in the meantime, users must jump hoops just to get it mostly right....

     

    also, the soundblaster has been known to throw krap into a perfectly good operating system.

     

    okay, that was the bad....try a minimum build (yea, lots of work),

     

    cpu, ram, vid, and only the OS HD, disconnect everything else, and see what is, if the problems persist, then you will have to start the swapping process, start with the CPU, put in the old one and see if it runs with the new Vid card...

     

    i think you get my drift.....process of elimination

  8. dude, your temps are totally out of line, especially if you are running stock, if clocking, then maybe a reduction of clockage (and heat producing volts) during the hotter months will help you survive.....

     

    always turn off your viri scanning software when Orthos is running, weird stuffs happen when you don't..........

     

    plus, it sounds like your case needs some ventation intervention..

  9. for those that have constant power outages, it would behoove you to purchase a UPS.....it will help with the voltage 'surge/spike' (that is what fries systems/parts) that can happen with a power outage and also when the power comes back on (it can spike BIG TIME when it comes back on)......

     

    if you don't, sooner or later it will take down your unit............

     

    laterz....


  10. if it will make any difference to you, i remember having some slight problems w/coretemp, unloaded it, there are far too many monitoring proggies that work properly, so out the door with it.

     

    BTW, glad to hear you may have the problem solved.

     

    Sometimes.....................:beer

  11. sounds like it is still in RAW....

     

    in winders--control panel>administrative tools>storage>disc management....right click the drive in question, format it...

     

    to do this you will have to boot with another HD with the new drive as a slave to begin with, then move on from there.....

  12. "RMA'ing them is not an option for me so I'm probably just going to replace them."

     

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

     

    why wouldn't you go for the RMA???? Gskill has a very superior lifetime warranty, I am sure if you make the call/send an email to tech support you will find a friendly ear.

     

    i had some Gskill that didn't perform the way I expected, darned if they didn't take it back and send me a pretested set, and they were absolutely luvly:rolleyes:

     

    so, the point of this postage is to kick you in the butt to do the RMA, ya never know what you will get back.

  13. i found them at the Kingmax website, however, no chipset infos was available. just what did you do when you went to the website?, it is a little slow at first accessing the TW website, but once you click on the US link, it speeds up and you will see lots of contact infos, plus a listing of the actual ram modules you have....

     

    might i suggest a couple of things, first, carefully remove a heatspreader on one (take your time) and then read the chip, or two,

     

    use the link for tech support, heck, they have US offices, you could call too, and i think it is a toll free.............

     

    this is an easily solved question...
