  1. sorry to hear about the fried stuff, that's really not cool. i will never hook up a psu w/out checking first now, nvr woulda even thought bout that. dont they sell usb floppys now for the little things you need to do old school?
  2. I had to read that twice it was so damn funny. chuck was actually a badass at one time, and would've kicked the living crap out of any action actor or otherwise at the time, but his acting... god help him. the only show worse than walker texas was that show with arsenio hall and the 300 pound martial arts guy, now that was bad tv at it's best. well, sorry, ryker on fact or fiction took the cake. nothing better than getting together with buddys and beers, placing bets, and watching that crap. long live that physic horse, he won me's a lot o cash.
  3. @msmolt ive had hearing probs most of my life, but i recently settled on some Shure E5C sound isolating canalphones, and i cant say enough about'em, IF you can get the right fit in your ear. a little pricey tho, so E4C is best bang for buck. Some recommend a mini-amp for use with mp3 players, but i havnt needed it yet with a cowon U2. anyway, queued up right now and shufflin: Gomez The Black Keys (excellent imho) Rusted Root The Magic Numbers Death Cab/Postal Service Modest Mouse Jesus and Mary Chain Elvis Presley (live in Memphis) Drive-By-Truckers Broken Social Scene Eels System of a Down Daft Punk and 15 Buffet albums, cuz this mini chicago ice-age is'a gonna kill me.
  4. first i would try setting the pc back to stock settings and see if it continues. if it continues locking, its prolly not the OC.
  5. @kitfit1 doing better than i could get the vx to do, i dont think i could even boot into windows with 240+. on another note, did you try the #2 pencil mod to get more volts? real simple, might get ya over that 250 hump. dont remember details, but i know Playah, if he is still around, experimented with it alot. make sure you have a MM to test reistance.
  6. already got a toastie, but hoping to find good deal on some bh5, cuz i want re-qualify with 250+ fsb w/ cpc on and the proc at 2750. i thought in the meantime, my sig's settings and model #'s would be more helpful to others trying to get an idea of hardware capabilities.
  7. melocot: this ram is definetly weird, just started playing with this memory again after a year, and found the same thing 2 days ago trying for $hitz and giggles to see how high i could actually get FSB. I have same memory xms3208v1.1, and it no work at any settings or volts with 2.5 or 3, only 2.0. bizarre, a year ago it would work with 2.5, but not anymore, using same bios. Had never tried 3.0 b4. no boot, dead system, requires cleared cmos with 2.5 or 3.0. and set back to 2.0 currently running memtest at 2.0,2,2,2,5 @250 with 3.3 volts (CPC OFF), 6 errors after 145 passes, actively cooled. burn-in since last tested because a year ago it was alot more errors with 2.0 @ 250. had to use 2.5 to get 250 stable. For some reason this TCCD has required me to throw mad volts at it, unlike most others running TCCD under 3.0 volts.
  8. yeah, i threw out the "metal table top" just to see the blood-curdling screams from responders. what can i say, i still have halloween fever! basically, im just curious if something like your suggestion of setting a mobo and other parts on cardboard, or even books, is sufficient, cuz i know the board is grounded when in the case, just wasnt sure what to do when it's out of case, and if it was safe to the touch when running outside of case.
  9. I seem to be getting more requests for system builds from friends and family, and ive noticed on most new builds, a lot of ppl set up evryting outside for testing b4hand, easier to make adjustments. what does one need to know to do this, as far as grounding or what not? does it ground thru PS to wall outlet? Can i just connect everything sitting on a metal table top and pray, or is there potential life-altering or ending consequences. i fear electricity, and rightfully so, curse my parents for not putting socket protectors on outlets when i was a kid . maybe ill just buy one of those neat little pc benches .
  10. bios is your friend on these boards, should be set manually. Ok, so is the ram rated for ddr400 or 333 (pc3200 or pc2700 respectively)? i believe your cpu is locked at 11 multiplier for an effective 2200mhz at stock (11 multi * 200 FSB), but if that value ram can only handle ddr333, u might be stuck at 1830mhz (11 multi * 166 FSB). either way, set it up for the proper config depending on ram in the bios genie. cpu voltage should be 1.65 for stock, i think :confused: at post it should show speed of what you set it at. tobias
  11. you can try this too. http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=12085
  12. wiz, im curious bout u trying 200 fsb w/ tight or loose timings at 3.6 and 3.7 vdimm for burnin. u dont mention if ya started at lower volts and worked up, or just w/ those high volts from the start. at 200fsb runnin tight or loose, you'd only need around 2.8 volts. ive seen high volts and only 200fsb generate tons of errors, only to lower the volts and be completely stable. i wouldnt run over 3.3 till you've upped fsb over 235 or 240 i would just try the lower volts and see how many errors are generated. and then only start using higher volts as you scale up fsb and try tighter timings... obviously if ya still have errors w/ lower volts too, then it's prolly not gonna work out.
  13. Kamel, is it a linksys 54g card? I cant get mine to work between 243 and 248 fsb. bizarre, to say the least. will run fine at 242 and even 249 and up, no problem. I nvr did figure out why. if anyone finds out, plz shoot me a pm. i had only occasional sound issues, i just open mixer, make sure settings are correct, and it comes back.
