  1. In a month or two its gonna be pretty hot in here...how did you know that?
  2. That's all she's got captain ................Thats my rig's maximum stable FSB, even when I still got those PC4000 OCZ VXs. I think thats my CPUs limit.
  3. CMOS cleared it overnight and it seemed to do the trick. Everything's back to normal now.
  4. I currently got a new computer case and transferred all my current components to it. The 2 LEDs turn on, but the board just wont power on. Any suggestions? My rig has been running stable for months now, I didnt change anything, only the case.
  5. Nope bought mine direct from the WD site. I just called up their support and they will update my warranty to 2008. Thanks for the input guys.
  6. I have tried replacing my Raptors once and their service is second to none. Im asking about their website because when I first got the drives, it showed having warranty until 2008, but when I checked now, it shows that the warranty has lapsed in 2004. The first raptors out already have 5 year warranties with them. Just wanted to know it theres a problem with their website since they show incorrect data. I have contacted then western digital and they still havent replied.
  7. I currently have 2 36GB WD Raptors that have a standard 5-year warranty on them, but I checked Western Digital's site and it lists my 2 drives as out of warranty since June of 2004. Obviously this is a mistake since the Raptors were introduced to the market in 2003. With a 5-year warranty, the earliest Raptors would end their warranty in 2008. :confused: I was just wondering if other 36GB Raptor owners experience the same problem with Western Digitals warranty site. My 74GB Raptor doesnt have this problem. http://websupport.wdc.com/warranty/seriali...arranty&lang=en
  8. Yep I agree Pls let me know how you resolve this as I might be taking a similar action. Best wishes.
  9. Its most likely the board, as I have tried different vid cards and memory also. My PSU also works with no problem on my other system. Try clearing a couple of times by removing the battery and powercord for a minute. I've also noticed that sometimes my optical mouse also doesnt work, this will light up after a clearing but the keyboard and monitor will still be dead. You should be able to boot up after a few tries.
  10. Same problem with me. One moment, the system is 100% stable (24 hrs. prime & OCCT) then 2 weeks or a month after, it wont boot up to BIOS. I would open the case, unplug and plug the RAM, vid card, hard drive connections & clear the CMOS. Sometimes this cures it, sometimes it doesnt. But once it boots up, it would then be stable again for the longest time and would show up again after a few weeks Does your keyboard light have no power when this happens to you? Cause mine's dead when this happens. Hope somebody knows why this happens cause its driving me crazy.
  11. Hi. Thanks for the reply Im leaning mostly on going with the Infinity and Opteron combo and I currently have these VX Ram so I just wanted to make sure before buying it. Im hoping someone would do a 3.3v+ BIOS mod for the Infinity in the near future though, just like what they did with the NF3 UT.
  12. Is there an available BIOS mod for the Infinity or DAGF that allows the user to exceed 3.2v for the memory? Thanks
  13. I currently have windows xP home installed in my 74G raptor. Now I have 2 more 36G raptors that I want to setup into a striped RAID drive without reinstalling windows again. How do I do it?
  14. Thanks for the info. Im only planning a single video card config so I think my 30A +12v would hold up.
  15. Thanks How many amps does the Ultra-D need for its +12v line? My PSU only has 30A, is this ok?
  16. Hi. Im planning to upgrade in a month or so and I would like to know what's the best DFI NF4 and Opteron combo out there for $350 for less. Im going to overclock and DONT plan to go with an SLI config. Im keeping my old OCZ VX PC4000 memory and OCZ Powerstream 420w PSU. Im planning to get a 7800GT to go with the new board and this rig will be mostly used for gaming and music. There's a lot of DFI NF4 boards out there (Infinity, Ultra, Ultra-D, etc.) and the same goes with the Opteron (144, 146, 244, 246, etc.). For those who have tried, what's the best combo for my budget? P.S. I know DFI support does not go with the opteron but I've read lots of success with the chip, so im willing to try it out.
  17. If your planning to overclock, definitely go with the NF3 250 GB. If not, there are other boards out there that are less expensive. I've noticed that its usually a hit or miss thing with the NF3 Lanparty, some of the boards that I've installed with friends have no problems whatsoever, while mine has encountered several ones.
  18. Diasble the BIOS select in your hard drive conrollers.
  19. Had the exact problem. I had to reformat my PC because of those stupid drivers and go back to the reliable 5.10 version
  20. If you add one stick you can still run it in DDR400, but if you add 2 more, it will only run in DDR 333 irregardless if its single of double rank.
  21. This also happens to me once in a while overclocked or not. Raising the chipset voltage from 1.5v to 1.7v diminishes the occurance of these problems but doesn't completely eliminate the problem for me. I finally cured the problem by using a additioinal PCI SATA card for all my hard drives
  22. Try uninstalling the old driver, then use driver cleaner (http://www.drivercleaner.net/), after that install the new drivers.
  23. I currently have the same ICEBREQ chipset cooler in my board and I think its better than the original passive heatsink. Also fits nicely under my 6800GT. It comes with its own push pins, so you dont need to remove the board in order to install it, just cut off the old plastic pins. http://www.1coolpc.com/iceberq.htm
