  1. Hey, im another diy-street member coming over here I plan on building a new rig with the following: DFI LP LT P35 T2R http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16813136039 I have a Zalman CNPS 7700 working on my socket 939. will this clip work to convert it to 775? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16835118219 I only ask because some of the reviews said it did not fit on certain motherboards. I do plan to OC my cpu (q6600), should I get a better heatsink? such as this: http://www.ewiz.com/detail.php?p=FAN-9500A...b879300fda58d7b or am I better off saving my money and getting the CNPS7700 mounting bracket?
  2. i havent been keeping up with the newer chips as of (last 3 weeks) and i feel already like a caveman lmao. i will take a look at the 45nm chips. Im assuming i need DDR2 1333mhz speed memory?
  3. So i am thinking about switching over to Intel CPUs, my amdx2 4200+ is not cutting it anymore for some games, and its probably the bottleneck in my system. I mainly use my PC for gaming (80% of time spent), streaming HD content (10%) (to xbox), and some video editing (10%). my question is this: Am i better off going for X38 chipset or 680i?,since 780i is not mainstream (affordable for me) yet. the 2nd question is: E6750 or Q6600? - also good memory for each? (I do not plan to overclock much, but i do need performance for games.)
  4. Ok usually my pc is error free, but as of late when i boot the pc up, it does not recognize my WD hdds, only the hitachi ones. It then goes into nvraid and starts to search for an array?!?! (do not have one) normal boot sequence is that my pc recognizes all 4 drives + optical I thought it could be a faulty ide cable, but i tried some new ones i just got, same error occasionally. it goes away when i open the case and make sure all the connections to the HDDs are secure. any thoughts?
  5. ever since i upgraded to the evercool chipset fan sometimes when i Boot up the pc, the led lights dim down and eventually the fan turns off. other times the lights dim down but the fan keeps running. kinda confused atm, nothing is blocking the fan either O_o
  6. PC Specs: Mobo: Asus P4S266VX (SONY PC) Chipset: SiS 650 Bus Speed: 100mhz Rated FSB: 400mhz CPU: P4 2.0 Ghz northwood processor Socket 478 Memory: 256x3 (PC2100) I do have a 1gb ddr400 kit sitting around, would it be a noticeable increase? or should i just leave this pc as it is.
  7. hrm they are stable now, prime for a few hrs already. it was the issue with the AS5 touching a contact point on the chipset O_o and they are running in 2T. and yea i have both sets, got it together
  8. yea i understand, but seeing as i already have 2gb, and that i plan on upgrading to the x38/nf7 chipset and gf9 series when available (no spared expense ) i felt like it wasnt necessary to spend 130ish on the mem
  9. hrm i was just wondering really, cause I had 2 options:OCZ platinum 2gbx1 set or AMD athlon 64X2 4200+ (toledo), i went with the dual core as it is 50 bux cheaper then the memory and probably will give me a significant boost over the memory. i didnt bother upgrading GPU cause of the eminent release of the gf 9 series
  10. performance wise which is faster? I was contemplating getting a 2x1gb kit for my box, but i dont overclock, and i use the box for gaming mostly.
  11. settings did not work BUT i did decide to take the chipset fan off and i saw some AS5 was touching one of those contact points on the chipset!!! cleaned if off with some alcohol and now in minimal build i get 1 led!!! looks like im all good. thanks a lot guys Things I did (for others): Re seat CPU cleaned it, reapplied AS5 and heat sink Cleaned chipset w/alcohol Remove some unnecessary motherboard raisers
  12. i have a new cpu arriving today as a matter of fact (athlon 64 x2 4200+) i will try these new settings but my unit wont even post with 2 sticks, see my dilemma?
  13. its weird cause i am having this problem: http://www.diy-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=80358 i just dont see any other plausible reason for it?
  14. i just bought a new CPu actually, i will try it out tommorow but i really think i could have damaged teh chipset because i did the evercool mod for the DFi chipset fan (mine died)
  15. If your chipset is damaged, is there anyway to replace it? or do i just have to buy a new board? seems to me that my chipset could be damaged as my PC will run only 1 memory stick in single channel now, and it iwll not run dual channel anymore.
