  1. I had the opposite experience with Xplosion, nothing but problems. But the latest driver release ( http://www.auzentech.com/site/download/updates.php ) fixed all the problems. They must have hired someone smart on the software driver side. It no longer mutes the microphone when starting BF2. The mic level is still low for this expensive piece of equipment, but I can live with that.
  2. It's $48.90 after MIR plus a minimum $8.71 shipping charge, so $57.61, plus a stamp for the rebate. $58 total bucks, not a bad total if someone needs one now.

  5. It's cool, but you'd have to have 3 8800GTX's to run it right, I would think. That's alot pixels.
  6. I just ordered today, 17 Dec 07 from the SVC shopping link your site provided: Subtotal 89.98 Shipping 8.15 Tax 7.42 Total 105.55
  7. Please post your output from 'sensors'. I'd post that here for others to see, and if you're having trouble with it, in that forum post at Ubuntu. There is plenty of help and examples on the web on how to 'not' report temps/fans etc that are not valid. I remember that I did have to tune up the formula's to get something approximate to what mbm/bios was reporting. You usually have 3 temps, MB/Sys, CPU, and NB chipset. I'm not running it right now so I can't be for sure. Keep googling and if you find something out that you think is good info, post it here. Thanks.

  9. Disregard what I said, as I tried to select uguru and it doesn't show up in the selection (although I've read somewheres that uguru does work). I have no idea how to enable or select it. It's in the .ini files.
  10. It's probably not detecting that S3 Virge correctly. It's easy to screw up the X windows totally when playing around with it. Search the web for the real instructions, but in general, you boot into single user mode, run 'xfconfig' from the command line and work from there. Then, boot into multi-user mode or run startx from the command line to start X again. Plenty of documentation on the web to get you there.
  11. Next year, get a 8800 vid card and scream!

  14. I looked at your manual: http://download.intel.com/support/motherbo...0jr2tpsrev1.pdf and can only say, Try using the config wizard and the select 'uguru' and see what happens. Did the board come with a cd with any 'utilities' or extras?
  15. Did someone say, 'unreal' ? http://www.fileplanet.com/181421/180000/fi...ent-3-Beta-Demo Or get the torrent.

    On the riva tuner thang, I used this guide and it works well if you don't go crazy with the configs: http://home.comcast.net/~boogieman1954/880...eed%20guide.htm I have it run at 100% => 70c, 85% => 68c and 75% => 65c. Works wonders, no games, not bf2/2142, or cs:s lockup at all after using those configs. My vid card runs hot, so having those fan duty cycles config'd really works for me.
  18. EDIT: This is on my new system for which I don't have a sig yet, Asus P5NE-SLI, Q6600, 8800GTS, OCZ 2GB memory. To make this to work for me, I opened up the voltage.ini file in the MBM5/Data directory (after installing MBM and patch 3 to the correct directory). In the voltage.ini file I searched for [Winbond W83627THF-A] and then changed VT=5 to VT=6 and pasted what Opener said to: V6=Asus P5N-E SLI V6V1=$20*0.016 // CORE0 V6V2=255 // CORE1 V6V3=$21*0.016 // 3.3V V6V4=$23*0.016*1.68 // 5V V6V5=$24*0.016*4 // 12V V6V6=255 // -12V V6V7=255 // -5V V6V8=$28*0.016 // VBAT (edit note: the '255' above means no readings) To get VBatt to show up on my P5N-E, I had to do the following: In the Settings/Voltages panel, select sensor 8. Change "Should display board sensor" to MBM Fixed. Then change "Voltage Configuration" to 'Asus P5N-E SLI'. Click on Visual, change name to VBatt, and click on Display this voltage in the dashboard screen. I changed everything to digital readouts except for CPU usage outputs. I'll see if I can post a pic in a minute, I have to reboot to get the drives to show up in MBM too. Thanks Soundx98 and Opener for the info, I couldn't have done it on my own in a million years.
  19. Wil, I see you've followed this thread for awhile. What are the results with NCQ on and off? And with read cache on and off? You might also look at the latest drivers from nvidia version 686 which includes v6.66 sata raid drivers. I don't use raid at all, but no one else seems to be stepping up to the plate, so post pics of your results with the above (4 pics, ncq on/read on, ncq on/read off, ncq off/read off, ncq off/read on), and see what people might say about that. Dylan
  20. I understand the pain it gives you to provide information related to YOUR request for help, but, Did you do a physical 'eyes-on' jumper check on the hard drives to make sure the are not set for SATA 1 as described in the linked pdf file. I'm gonna be gone this afternoon, can someone step in and help this person. Thanks, Dylan
  21. Please answer the questions I posted if you want some help. I can't see your system from here. Yes, some sata drives DO have jumpers, and your driver versions may be pertinent to the problem, and yes it's nice to know what model drives you are using. I'm not trying to invade your personal privacy, but these are things we need to know to help you out. 1. Driver version for ide/sata/raid? Go to device manager to find out. 2. Jumpers on drive pulled? Some came out of the factory with the jumper on, limiting the drive to Sata1 speeds of 1.5Gbs transfer speed: http://www.seagate.com/staticfiles/support.../100402371f.pdf See Chapter/paragraph 3.2 3. Model number of the drive? such as ST3160215AS or ST3160815AS.. (can usually also find out in device manager) Notes for info: Those are Sata II drives that run at 3Gbs, not Sata 3 . The model numbers above have a 78 MB/s maximum sustained data transfer rate (each), so that will help in determining the results you are getting.
  22. For the pro's that will look at what you posted, can you provide the drivers version that you are using for the ide/sata/raid stack and the model numbers of the drives themselves. Don't take this as an insult, but are there any jumpers on the HD's that you might have forgotten to pull?:eek:
  23. If you can remember if you had a weather storm or an electrical outage right before the memory went bad. Or if you regularly replace light bulbs around your house quite often, then you might check your house's power lines and grounding. Another clue is if you get shocked near the washer machine and dryer. An electrician can help or advise on what to do. I'm not talking about static build up from carpet, but the real problems. You can get a tester from the hardware store that you plug into your outlets and test them for proper wiring and grounding. (however, I have no idea how the electrical stuff is done in NZ). Edit again, and use MBM to monitor the voltage to your memory, it should stay solid and not flucuate. In MBM, you can log those readings and look for trends.
  24. Having both go bad at the same time is 'unusual', (I'd probably look at grounding/power supply problems too), but you've done what you could to narrow down the problem. My vote: Send 'em back. Get an RMA, and please post how the process worked for you and the way you were treated for future crucial buyers to read.
  25. Hopefully you'll take some computer science classes and have to load up linux again!!! Linux does have everything you need to get your degree! Open Office, databases, spreadsheets, graphs, audacity for audio, gimp for graphics, etc. Good luck at school!!!
