  1. Cool Thanks for the link, Do you guys think that I will se a huge difference with this processor as opposed to the 3400 I think I ghad it Oc'd to 2500 and running stable, How much difference will I see....Speculate if you would like....Thanks, Tracy Lowery
  2. Cool I think thats the best solution, I will keep the memory and get the 3700 Newark SH8-E5, Question is, where can I buy this exact chip, I looked @ Newegg but did not find it there if anyone know please help, Thanks so much for all the help you guys have given me. Happy Holidays, Tracy Lowery
  3. Hi Guys, Well I just sent the board back to DFI and so far they were very helpful with that end, I will have to wait for them to determine that in fact the board is dead and then they will repair it or send a new one. Ok So now....I may want to change a few things before installing the new or repaired board. The memory I have on this board is (Crucial Ballistix 184-Pin 512MB DDR PC-3200 x 2) not really the most compatable for overclocking.The processor that I have is the 3400+ CLAWHAMMER CO. revision not good for clocking but a good chip. Please tell what would be the best memory to purchase at this time and the best processor as well. Best meaning for over clocking and stability. Thanks for you help and support. HAPPY HOLIDAYS.

  5. Hi Guys, Well its been about a year sice I posted here, I want to again say thanks to everyone for all your help back then. I have just found out that my motherboard is fried. I started getting random black screens and restarts a few months back. Then recently started getting internet exploror shut downs due to Win32. Since the last restart a few days ago not only will it not boot but it wont even post. So I reset the cmos and nothing. So my computer guy has the comp now. My question is.....and please take note of my signature below, I want to change the board, and being that I got stuck with the CO revision of my 3400 when I built it, (Really pissed me off) and also that the memory is not what most are using for this board. Which board should I get now? Or better yet should I upgrade memory, processor & board. As of now I have no desktop comp and I am using my laptop. I am not up on whats happening these days so any suggestions will be much appreciated. Thanks, Tracy

  10. Hey Guys, Well its been a long weekend fighting with this Verifying DMI pool message, I had installed Norton System Works 2005 and all was well I did the Live updates and on Friday it had an auto update so I let it do its thing and when finished it asked me to restart and that when all the problems started, somehow it had changes my boot priority and I could not get into windows and boot screen was stuck on (Verifying DMI pool Data) I tried everything and then I updated the bios to 9-14 from the DFI site and installed the latest chipset drivers exept for the IDE drivers. Took me a few times and finally got into windows, Just did some tweaks this morning and I am running @ 250x10 seems to be stable I will stop there and see how she feels for the next few days. Havent really done any XP tweaks I was wondering what the recomended tweaks are for Win XP. Just wanted to let you guys know about Norton System works. I did alot of reading on others having the same issues with DMI pool with Norton. Anyways Happy Holidays!!!!! Take Care, Tracy

  15. Hi jess1313, Just wanted to say thanks again for all the help, I am not to happy about the CO rev. of my Clawhammer I will call Newegg to see if I can exchange for a CG rev. I hope they have one I mean after all of this to have a chip that dosen't overclock that well is very dissapointing, Also I have read about some people having problems installing the XP-120, Is there anyone else that has used this HSF without any problems? Take Care, Tracy Lowery
  16. Hi, jess1313 (AR, then its a CG if AP, then is a CO) Here are the nubers on the chip: ADA3400AEP5AP (The CO Right?) Also I was looking at Thermalright's web site, I think I will get the XP120, Do you have any suggestions on which fan to use with this? Is there a installation guide for the (DFI lanparty ut 250gb)? Thanks, Tracy Lowery
  17. Sorry For the HSF ? Still havent had my second cup of coffee. I will research those HSF, thanks for the response. Take Care, Tracy Lowery TMLAUDIO
  18. jess1313, Thanks for the quick response, I do have the clawhammer(1m). If not the Venus 7+ please tell me which cpu fan to use with my setup? (my only suggestion to you, as far as Overclocking goes, would be, that if you wish to get the most out of your processor, to upgade your HSF in the futur ) Please tell me what you mean by HSF? Thanks Again, Tracy Lowery
  19. Hey Guys, I will be building this system next week when all the parts come in. Please tell me what else I can do to get prepared for this build as far as bios updates? and ram install, which slots to use? CPU fan install? and also I am going to use the Raptor as system and an WD ATA133 80 gig for storage, will the SATA & IDE work together well? DFI lanparty ut 250gb CPU AMD 64 |3400+ ATHLON 64 Thermaltake Venus 7+/ WILL THIS WORK?
