  1. Check out this drive by Western Digital: Western Digital Caviar SE 250 GB SATAII 16MB Cache 7200 RPM http://www.monarchcomputer.com/Merchant2/m...=SATAHardDrives The Hitachi drives dont have 16mb of cache.
  2. Ive noticed that useing the 4v jumper will make your temps run hotter in the BIOS. Im running VX ram and when I switch to TCCD my temps Idled lower than with VX. An FX chip will generaly run hotter. If you have an adjustable PSU you can do the volt mod trick and that should lower your temps do to the fact your motherboard wont be running as hot.
  3. I am now testing at 3.4 volts, 255mhz, X11 multi, CPU 2.8 @ 1.6 volts. Ram is in the yellow slots. 4/14-2 bios is the only one that let me go past 3.4 volts. Try 3.2 volts for 5-2-2-2 200mhz. And from what ive been reading these 3700 San Diegos arnt overclocking as high as the beta samples that were first released. Mine needs 1.6 volts to be stable at 2.75. Thats still not a bad overclock I must say. I really recommend flashing to the 4/14-2 bios for the VX ram. As far as CPC in the 3/10 bios I dont remmber where that is.
  4. What CPU clock speed and voltage are you running at. And I generaly run 25 complete passes on memtest. One more thing, my PC4000 VX didnt like more than 3.4 volts in the orange slots. I flashed to the 4/14-2 bios and now run them in the yellow slots with as much volts as needed. I now have my ram stable at 260mhz at 7-2-2-2, but my CPU doesnt want to do a lik over 2.75.
  5. It took me a while to find a sweet spot with this ram. For your ram to run at 200 5-2-2-2 you should need only 3.1 to 3.2 volts. It also likes tight timmings. Go to Genie bios and try these settings and see if they help. There in the same order in genie bios. These settings should work all the way to 250 - 260mhz, only then should you need 3.4 to 3.5 volts. And try 3/16 or 4/14-2 BIOS. 200 Enable 2.0 02 05 or 07 02 07 or 09 16 02 02 01 01 or 02 0780 Auto Enable Auto 0 Level 6 Level 2 6.0 or 7.0 4.0 or 5.0 032 Enable 08X 07X Disable
  6. I had problems to until i lowered Tref to 0780.
  7. The 3/16 BIOS worked best for me. I had the same problems with high voltage until I dropped Tref to 0516. I ran every thing else the same except Drive strength 8, Data drive strength 4, Dynamic Counter enabled and I was able to hit 260 at 5-2-2-2 3.5V. My biggest problem was my proccessor (A64 FX53) wouldnt do a lik over 2.4ghz. Once I figured that out scaled back the Multi and uped HTT to 260 I was golden. Sold my FX and preorder 3700+ Sandiego. From what ive read if you have errors in Memtest 1-4 its usually a Tref issue. I would also recomend trying OCZ's forrum: http://www.bleedinedge.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=45
  8. Does anyone have a A.C. Ryan Ryanpower2 550W or have heard anything about it. So far I have had no problems with mine. I am getting a water cooling system and some G.Skill PC4400LE ram. I want to do some serious overclocking and would like to know if this power supply would hold me back. Some Specs: Model Number: ACR-PS2100 Total Power: 460W +3.3V min / max: 0.5A / 32A +5V min / max: 1.0A / 35A +12V min / max: 0.5A / 30A -12 min / max: 0.1A / 0.5A +5Vsb min / max: 0.1A / 2A
