  1. Thanks guys. Im always lurking, just having no problems at all, both systems run flawlessly, so I dont come looking for help. OldGuy I'll PM you if I strike out, many thanks.
  2. Got a link, I searched ZZF and found nada in stock. LP UB not even listed.
  3. I went looking for a new Infinity for a friend, and they are nowhere to be found. Anyone know of a place still stocking Infinity or LanpartyB NForce2 boards?
  4. I use this, fits perfect, compatible with raid and SLI with no issues. I mount it in the 11 o'clock position, so the fins are BEHIND the upper video card. You do need to plugin the 4pin molex BEFORE screwing down the hsink. I remove the fan, it works flawlessly in passive mode, my CPU hsf has plenty of air blowing through it onto the JingTing.
  5. Just scrape off all the old black silicon glue, and use just a tiny dab of new silicon glue at the 4 corners. Clamp the IHS/CPU/HEATSINK inplace on a motherboard lying flat on the table, let the glue dry/harden in the compressed position. This will give you excellent core/ihs contact inside, and should yeild resyults somewhere between NEKED CORE and STOCK. All the glue is for is to keep the IHS from shifting position under use, beyond that nothing else is needed.
  6. An AC unit costs TEN TIMES!!! what it does in the USA?
  7. I use that case alot, I always snip out the grill behind the intake fan. On serious systems, I cut a 120mm fan into the door to blow over the mosfet/dimm areas, works great. Combine with a 120mm fan PSU and you have 2 slow 120mm intake, and 2 slow quiet 120mm exhaust, great combo.
  8. Easy fix. Best if you have a old NF2 system to use...one where you can use a single stick of ram. Get hold of a copy of the Taiphoon SPD burner program. Put the Mushkin in, copy the SPD, then put the Twinmos stick in its place, and burn the Mushkin SPD into the Twinmos stick. Do the same for the other Twinmos. Now your system will think you have 4 sticks of Mushkin, and the SPD's will be the same. You issues come from 2 different SPD's and timing parameter freakout by the bios, clear that up, use ONE set of timings (these are the "load default" settings you end up with, some various timings the SPD sets that the bios doesnt have manual settings for, and so trouble. This solved my 2X and 2Y sticks of UTT-BH that had issues with using all 4 together.
  9. I use the JingTing heatpipe cooler, mounted in the 10 O'clock position, without its fan, as a passive cooler. It max's at 48C on the NF4 in total silence. It sits just behind my X1900 in the top slot.
  10. The brass standoff is not tight into the case, so it is spinning. So just keep turning the screw....the stand off will un-screw from the case eventually. Next time, tighten the "yellow things" really really TIGHT so they wont work loose.
  11. Find the JingTing chipset heatpipe cooler, install it at the 10'Oclock position BEHIND the video card, (remove the fan you dont need it) and it works great. I peak at high 40'sC now WITHOUT the fan.

    Making MBM work on the new board

    Anyone have thoughts on how to convince/tweak MotherBoardMonitor to recognize the RDX3200? Is the monitoring chip similar enough to the one ued on the NF4 board to make some adjustments to the data/config files and get it to work?
  13. Jet, there is a trick to make it work, same as with any motherboard transition. Get a Sil3112 PCI sata controller, install it in your old system, boot and load the sil3112 PCi drivers. Now that windows install on your raid KNOWS about the sil3112 drivers. Move the XP raid setup over... sata1 to sata1 channel, sata2 to sata2 channel. Now reboot and the old system should boot off the sil3112 controller. Uninstall the old systems motherboard chipset drivers, etc. Now move the sil3112 and raid array over to the new system. Powerup, you should be able to boot up off the Sil3112 based raid array in the new motherboard, and then load drivers for it. Then once you have loaded the new systems sata drivers, you should be able to once again move the raid array over to the new motherboard based sata controller and all will be recognized and boot fine. Not a garauntee but Ive done that a couple times now with no problem.
  14. Thats great RGONE. On 01', I'd be #12... 35154... with my 2.75Ghz 165, and single X1900XT Wish someone would crack the CFire driver to allow use on SLI boards :nod: I know what you mean Angry, but I see alot of the issues as software not hardware, so I still look forward to getting a CSX3200, so long as Oskar, etc keep working on solving the problems. I also firmly believe that it is ATI's software for CFire/drivers that is at fault. There is no reason 2 X1900's can work as smoothly as 2 7900's other than NVidia's SLI driver software is well perfected, and gaining application support, while ATI has slipped back into thier old ways of piss poor software development efforts.... remember tha days before the 9700pro when ATI had the most gawdaweful drivers on earth? I do, they sucked azz, but they overcame their faults once, I hope they will again..... fingers crossed. I do appreciate your honest opinion, thanks.

    Has AS5 met its match?????

    Not gonna do it. I can see it now, a tiny drip gets on my case, the next morning I have a pile of parts on the floor. The IHS is solid copper, with a nickel plating. No mention of how that stuff handles nickel.
