  1. Hello, How long did you clear the CMOS for? When overclocking you must decrease the hypertransport ratio, without doing this may cause corruption on the sata BUS. Which may be why they no longer work. (High frequency has fried them). Other than trying to clear the CMOS for 10mins there is not much that you can do. Are the drives definitely getting power?
  2. Hello, How long have you had 4GB of memory and did you recently enable the memory hole option in the BIOS?
  3. I have a laptop which may benefit from the 2x256MB Samsung memory. Do you have any other DDR SODIMM modules? (2x512MB)
  4. Hello, I take it this shipped with windows when you purchased it? Genuine windows sticker still present?
  5. I haven't been much use recently and how I missed something so obvious makes me feel and look stupid. Trying to do to many things at once and I have so much on my mind.
  6. Another thought. How did you determine 12v1 from 12v2 (did Atrix dedicate P4 connector/PCI-E to one or...) And what is the actual method Atrix used, 2 independent 12v regulators or 1 shared with current limiters.
  7. Nicely done. Just a thought For D is it possible to get a close up to show the components used for the 3.3v/5v/12v outputs as this section will vary on a higher end PSU. (For comparison reasons).
  8. Will the electrical safety cover things like, short circuit protect, Over voltage protection... (or just mention the features). Is it worth mentioning about 60Hz/110Vac used in USA? (in case people are not aware). (I am going to be busy for the next 2 months so may not be around the forum. Note for mods)
  9. You know I wasn't being serious about the AS5?
  10. The finished piece looks impressive but did you use AS5 paste on all the resistors? Classic symptoms of a stressed out cheap PSU, the coils squeek. Nice job and I look forward to the review.
  11. Looks good. I managed to work out the 5v/17.54A calculations . Doc, lets take the first diagram as an example. Paul joined all the grounds (right end of the diagram) for the 3.3v resistors together, just picture them as individual circuits. 3.3v wire goes here>0----------[1ohm Resistor]------------0<3.3v ground wire goes here. That is it, the 1ohm resistor puts a load on the 3.3v rail. Then the next diagram is the same but features 2x0.68ohm resistors in parallel. 3.3v wire goes here>0----------[2x0.68R parallel]------------0<3.3v ground wire goes here. So all it is, +rail (any voltage) here>0----------[resistor combination]------------0 And that is how he will be stressing the PSU.
  12. For the price and the DDR2 1000Mhz rating. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16820231145
  13. If you can go to cl=3 + get the CPU FSB 50Mhz higher then yes . What happens if you change, Rccd permable time = 6ns. tRC = 11 tRFC = 12 And have you got the HTT ratio set to x3?
  14. You may have some use for them I happen to come across this review. http://www.bjorn3d.com/read.php?cID=1048&pageID=3092 Not sure if you are aware of the ATX specification and all the revisions made over the years but the -5V rail was phased out a long time ago. And the PSU sticker clearly shows no -5v rail. Strange review.
  15. Hello, Have you ever considered not using a 1:1 ratio? For example try to reach 300Mhz FSB (3Ghz) and this ratio, 166Mhz 5:6 (DRAM:FSB). If you can do that, it will be far better than running it at 1:1.
  16. You wont get a 22" with that kind of resolution, 30" is what you will need. Yeah you can't run an SLi setup with 2 monitors
  17. Did you end up going with Rapid electronics? EDIT: saw the other thread.
  18. Hello, Why did you pick that particular abit board? This one is very good and has a strong BIOS. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16813128059
  19. Hello, Client 1. If the PC is off and you plug a drive into the esata port + power the drive. Then turn on the PC, does it still lock up?
  20. Did the shop test your CPU in another board? (or put another CPU in your board) As what you have describe is what can happen when the CPU has blown.
  21. Hello, The "8-NC-4-8'" is on the Expert and Venus boards, not the SLI-DR. You mentioned that it gets to the windows loading screen, what happens if you boot into safe mode? If you can uninstall the nvidia drivers and restart. If not use 1 card and uninstall the nvidia drivers and try again. Also use the latest 8800 series nvidia drivers. http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_169.21_whql.html
  22. Hello, Can you list your settings here? 1st boot = 2nd boot = 3rd boot = Hard disk boot order = should have a list + other controllers listed here. Slightly off topic, Why did you decide to have an IDE Hard drive with a CD drive on the same IDE cable? It is always better to have hard drives on the same IDE cable and CD drives on a separate IDE cable/channel.
  23. So it is always the card in the bottom PCI-E slot that does not work? Have you also tried just 1 gfx card in the bottom slot on its own?
  24. Hello, Does the manual say anything about the E-sata operation? I have seen someone else post a simlar problem before, never did find a solution. Set your hard drive to SATA150 and see what happens.
  25. So what were the results? Always the same card not working? If the new card goes in first (top slot) you said that it works fine on its own. If you then turn off and insert the old card in the bottom slot what happens? Old card not work in device manager?
