  1. That would make sense if it wouldn't even work with static IP. Alas, static IP works fine but DHCP does not.
  2. Yep, works fine when I don't use DHCP.
  3. I use mine with a Linksys router. I didn't install the network manager. I have SP2 firewall disabled.
  4. I wonder if it's only this motherboard or all nforce3s? Is this something I should post in the nf3 bug section?
  5. What exactly is APIC anyways? Would it make my system more stable if it's off?
  6. I'm having an odd problem. Ever since I installed this board, most of the time the nForce ethernet fails to pull an IP from my DHCP server. I can tell windows to use an Alternate Configuration and type the IP I want in and that works, but really DHCP should work. Anyone have this issue or any suggestions? Thanks
  7. Well, I actually use this fanless heatsink: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc....-185-109&depa=0 I have two low rpm case fans pulling air in from the bottom and the power supply fan sucking the air out from the top. I also have the VGA Silencer for my 9800. My entire goal has been as quiet a system as possible. Right now my HD is the loudest component.
  8. What is the benefit of disabling thermal throttling?
  9. I don't know, but it's the hottest temp in my system on idle. My CPU will be 40C and it'll be 45C and my case will be 35C.
  10. So if I have two dimms of same size, should I still use DIMM1 and DIMM3? Perhaps that would help CnQ?
  11. alex1971, With ram at 5:6 it runs CnQ for a little longer than normal, but still hangs. Thanks for the tip!
  12. So CoolNQuiet causes my machine to crash. That was the only reason I bought this motherboard.
  13. I bought this motherboard because I read that it's the best for socket 754, not for it's overclocking abilities.
  14. Please don't hide Cool n Quiet. I emailed DFI support asking if it supports this feature with two memory sticks and they said yes. That was the biggest reason for my purchase. I currently have an AOpen AK89 Max and it only supports CnQ with 1 stick of ram. Please resolve the issue instead of removing support!!!
