  1. Thats what figured i just wanted to know, is all socket 754 cpu's or only Hammer and NewCastles?
  2. When it shuts, and you turn it back on read the Event Viewer and see what is causing the shut downs, look it it software or hardware or a driver.
  3. Try this: http://www.bleedinedge.com/forum/showthread.php?t=18106 Look thru that and try different settings, and also try here: http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10195 do a search in the second link for OCZ mem and try other people settings, let me know how it works out for you.
  4. Maybe it is your cpu, lower the divider to the lowest point and increase the fsb, when you find the breaking point of the cpu, scale it back by 1-5mhz,then put the divider 1:1, I have my OCZ running at 255 with 1:1 with no problem, and I also tried 270 and had no problems, just need better cpu cooler. try that.
  5. I think I have the Newcastle 3500+ not a good oc in my opinion but I have not played around with a lot, gave it to my dad he uses for his photoshop so I did not want to oc it, but when I had i could not get much out of it. The board is awesome and extemely solid.
  6. Hi guys I have a dum question, I have a NF3(754) and a newcastle, as I see thru the forum people realy cant oc this chip, why is this chip a bad oc? I can only get maybe 100-200 Mhz OC out of it? Any advice, SPECS: NF3(754) NewCastle 2*512 Patriot XBLK mem. It is no big deal but I was just wondering about this. Thanks, :confused:
  7. I think if you are running Windows x64 then it could be a issue with windows, more software then hardware. X64 is BETA so a lot of software has problems until they fix all the bugs in new OS, if you run Prime95 and run 3dMark, if running 3dMark gives no problem then it is 100% windows 64, try a patch for that game.
  8. Yep it means drivers, the driver gone bad and cant work at high oc, try lower the MHZ by 1 or so and everything should start to work.
  9. I had the same problem, when i put a anything in usb like my camera, it would say windows does not recognize what it is and give like 10 usb ports, so what I did I unistalled all the drivers and reinstalled the Nvidia drivers that I got from the Nvidia web site. Installed this first http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_nf4_wi...2_amd_6.70.html and here:Then this. http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_nf4_st...ne_archive.html And then everything went to work.
  10. Hi guys I updated my BIOS on the Expert now USB devices dont work says windows cant recignize devices. Please advice.
  11. The Cold Bug has nothing to do with the BIOS like stated above. I am looking into the same option about get light speed, I read that some will boot, just test. Thats what I am going to do and keep my fingers crossed.
  12. Yes you can flash BIOS without the floppy, you just have to wait untill T-Mod puts it in the CD BIOS program. Here: http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=22031
  13. NO it is an awesome board it has it flaws, like any thing in this world even the mosr expensive cars have problems.If you dont mind and have the time to tweak it, it is the best board out there even with its flaws.Even if I had to buy it now I would.
  14. Thats not true read here: http://wiki.extremeoverclocking.com/wiki/Opteron_Steppings It is mostly for opty 175 with that stepping.
  15. What exactly is acold boot? MAybe thats adum question. That is what i did I ran Central Brain ID and it said -10 so i adjusted my temps in the bios.
  16. Here is some nice info for you: http://wiki.extremeoverclocking.com/wiki/Opteron_Steppings
  17. Duke take it easy man, sell it and get MSI or Abit. I had Abit nice board. Still like the DFI. did you contact DFI?
  18. That is crazy for that kind of $$$$ that they want for a Venus board atleast they should have fixed all the minus before sending it out, like I said before it is all about the benjimans$$$$$, corprate world. buttom line.
  19. I dont have that problem, man these boards are having problems. For $200+ should not be so many problems with them.
  20. I think if the Venus has no problems then DFI wants everyone to jump on the Venus and make more $$$$$$$ that is the bottom line in the corprate world, why are you guys so suprised about this?Just a thought:D
  21. ThunDa you this is a never ending story, you buy one chip few weeks later they come out with a new and that makes you mad by the time you buy the new one they come right back and produce another new chip and you say that this is better and let me get that new one, so this is a never ending story, I also want the latest and the greates.:nod: Wish money would not be a issue but it is.
  22. I am still going to give it a run, I am looking at VapoChill LightSpeed, whats the worst that can happen I will sell my current cpu and get a different one. Still doing research. Thanks for your help.
  23. Oh ok, so if I get the PhaseII cooling and run it at -40c I cant go back to warm temps? But anything under -20 - -40 is ok? I am also waiting for direct responce from AMD tech about this, I dont want to buy it and then have problems with the cpu.Guys thanks for you help:D
  24. How do you figure it is a step back? I also have the Big Typhoon running with 120mm SUnon fan, my typhoon cant give me -40c can yours? If not Vapo then Phase cooling. What temps are you getting with you Typhoon?
