  1. I have been trying to get this chip to OC now since I have had this board. She is perfectly stock stable, 23 hrs or so prime and blows through all the benchys great. If I try and push anything out of her past 2.5 ghz she bellies up. I can get her to 2.6ghz with 260x10 at 1.54 volts. with my memory on a divider. At this speed she is OCCT Stable but, failes Prime 95 after about 2 hours.


    So, what do you guys think? Rip this sucka outta here and get an opty make it naked and keep this one as a backup? Or pump some more juice in her to see if she gets stable?

  2. CopyNinjaKakash is simply a misspelling of Copy Ninja Kakashi, the character from the (now) popular anime Naruto, which ive liked for years--- way before it was licensed and brought to the US!!! Also kindly note the "Resident Otaku" under my name, implying that i am DFI-street's Resident Otaku.


    You have another fellow Otaku Elite here my friend.

  3. But, not really, just wanted to use my 300th post as a little thank you note to all you helpful folks that hang out here. You guys talked me into getting a DFI board, and although it is quirky, and really kicked me in teh nutz when trying to set up my memory, it has been an uber stable board for me in every way imaginable. I am working on getting my 3500+ E6 stable at 11x250 and hopefully have that knocked out tonight. Its rock solid at 10x250, but, thats weak lol




    Again, thank you guys!!! You all RULE!!



    Oh yeah, and btw, if you have not checked this out, go here




    I am addicted. If you go to the Top 100 and look at the #1 video for 2005, I know all you guys (ie men) out there may totally appreciate it (and possibly some ladies)



  4. Well the frustrating thing is that I let Prime95 go for about SIX hours and it passed without any problems. Then I went and ran BF2 and the whole system bluescreened/crashed while loading the first level. In fact, I've NEVER had Prime95 ever give me anything but a flawless report.


    My other frustration has been that I'll get a good set of overclocks and then the majority of the games will act... funny. For instance, Call of Duty 2 will get really strange stutters. Not necessarily the framerate getting choppy, but it's almost as if something is out of sync. I see it most when turning rapidly indoors. Almost is if it's having a hard time loading the textures. At normal clock speeds I usually don't see these issues. NFS:MW also exhibits a pause here and there, but that could be typical.


    Perhaps my issue lies in my RAM (I have another thread going on that)?



    BF2 has known issues with an OC system. Do not know why just yet. I know there are several discussions about this on other forums. Although I know people on older chips like XP ect do not have this issue.

  5. Hello,


    This is the setting that adjusts the memory frequency.

    DRAM Frequency Set (MHZ) = ?


    The Memory frequency is calculated as a ratio or fraction, based on the FSB.


    Default CPU FSB = 200Mhz

    DDR400 runs at 200Mhz


    So the ratio is 1:1


    Mem frequency / FSB = 1

    200Mhz (400DDR) / 200Mhz FSB = 1


    But it is shown as a ratio, 1:1


    And it the BIOS you should see this, DRAM Frequency Set (MHZ) = 200 (DRAM/FSB:1/01)



    Suppose you wanted to run the memory at 166Mhz.

    What would the ratio be?


    166 / 200 = 0.83, this is the same as 5/6.


    So in the BIOS you would choose,

    DRAM Frequency Set (MHZ) = 166 (DRAM/FSB:5/06)


    So if the bios did not show the 166 bit you would know to choose 5/06


    Key points,

    # using 1:1 means memory runs at FSB frequency

    # using other ratios depends on what you set the FSB frequency to.



    So knowing that, if you wanted to keep the memory at 200Mhz (400DDR) and run the FSB at 250Mhz, what would the ratio be?


    Use the formula, Memory frequency / FSB frequency


    So, 200Mhz Memory frequency / 200Mhz FSB frequency = 0.8


    0.8 is the same as what?

    4/5 :)


    But in the bios this value is not there so you would have to choose the closes one which is



    So for 250Mhz FSB and 200Mhz memory you would choose this.

    DRAM Frequency Set (MHZ) = 166 (DRAM/FSB:5/06)


    See how it works?


    I have used that formula with my Expert board, and set my CPU FSB to 250 and put my memory to 1:1 and it still boots as DDR 400. Am I doing something wrong?

  6. True, you just go into your sharing control panel in the system preferences (mac os x ) and put a check mark next to Windows File Sharing, now your home directory should appear to other windows computers on your network. Make sure your workgroup is the same, I think you can change it in your Utilities Folder,,.,its the directory access application, and just edit the Samba portion. I do it at home and its easy, I use ,my G4 now as a stereo streaming my files from my pc.
