  1. Did you try increasing the core voltage? Integrated memory controller = more votage needed with tighter timings and/or dual channel and/or lots of banks, etc.
  2. You're asking a fairly biased forum. I'd go with the DFI, but make sure you hop around on the forum and choose a good PSU, and some compatible RAM. Though, to be fair to the other guy, I have heard more positive comments about the included sound on the Gigabyte than I have for the Karajan. Honestly, though, I have no complaints with my audio.
  3. Just scroll down on the Genie page. It is automatically set to Enabled.
  4. I haven't read through this thread in awhile, but from my CBBID experience, staying at 1.6V, 1.3x1.23 is the best for 259x10, but I have to go with 1.45x1.1 for 236x11.
  5. Sweet. You guys rock, OCZ (and Angry). If those Rev2s had been a bit more in my price range *ahem* 2 months ago, I'd be rockin' the OCZ sig. Thanks again.
  6. Did you have the CDROM as first boot device? If you're willing to reformat, you should just be able to delete and format the partition that has XP installed. Let the CD load all the necessary files, then just page through until it offers to delete partition.
  7. There's no guarantee that they will work together on this board. I'd put the 512 in alone and in slot 2 (outer orange), flash to 3/10 or 3/16 BIOS, then try again with 1-256, 2-512, 3-256.
  8. Go with the XP90 or XP120. And you already have really good RAM.
  9. Not a bug; that's the way half multipliers work by design.
  10. There's a checkbox under the text box ("Show your signature"). Just check it next time you post, and it will remain checked for future posts.
  11. Ah, makes sense. Well if you do go with the adapter, I'd suggest using it to connect to the drive, and using the native plug for the mobo. Not that there will be issues, but better safe than yadda, yadda, yadda.
  12. More information needed. Put together a signature and include it in your posts. Click "User CP" at the top of the page.
  13. I haven't heard any complaints about using the adapters, but a lot of people (myself included) have just dropped the floppy drive...and the need for another plug.
  14. If you installed the USB drivers from the CD, you will not get USB2.0 working. Uninstall the drivers, and let Windows reinstall them. Have you installed both of the LAN drivers? You may also want to register the MAC addresses (white stickers on each port) in the BIOS.
  15. Non-video PCI-E slot (the 1x (I think) itty-bitty one). I thought it also covered the FDD power connector. Is that true, too?
  16. 7700 isn't recommended because it covers the top (non-video) PCI-E slot, not that anyone uses it.
  17. They were all migrated from 20 to 24 a couple of months ago, so it was just an old site.

  19. Never adjust your rails going by BIOS/Windows readings. If you're even thinking about it, buy a DVM and find out the rails. My OCZ 520 always read low, and the actual rails ended up being fairly high (3.53, 5.2, 12.34).
  20. Reload optimized defaults (one of the BIOS options). Go to DFI's site. Download their flash utility for the 3/10 BIOS. Run the utility, which creates a bootable floppy. Boot with the floppy. You're done. This 3/10 BIOS is officially released, so the warranty still stands. http://www.dfi.com.tw/Support/Download/bio..._FLAG=A&SITE=US There are explicit directions in the stickies for what to do immediately after flashing.
  21. That FSB is the HTT reading (though it shouldn't be called FSB). So increasing that increases your RAM Mhz. The 200 you're seeing in DRAM Config is the divider 200=1:1 (sync). The stickies have great o/c info.
  22. I'm running the PC4000 2.5-3-3-7 version. They're the same sticks, just binned to run at 250. They o/c quite well. I've had them up over 300 at 3-4-4-9, but I like to stay around 260 at 2.5-3-3-7. Yours should be able to do the same, but, as always, your mileage may vary.
  23. You definitely need to read up on it. Dividers are BIOS mechanisms to run your RAM asynchronously with your CPU. Search for "RAM dividers."
  24. 1) The shipping BIOS had a VDIMM bug. Use PageUp/PageDown to change the voltage. Then F10 out of it (arrowing down will clear it, again). 2) Don't disable CPC unless you're running 4x512. Your o/c will be pretty, but performance will go way down. 3) Try loosening to 2-3-2-7, or something like that. 4) With no o/c, flash to the 3/10 official or one of the 4/14 beta BIOSes.
