  2. There isn't a list of the folding members (Active) so I am going to make one. If you do fold for DIY-street please post the following comment; "I fold 4 DIY" Should someone wish to drop out (at any time) please post here again with the comment; "I quit folding" And if you are a new member that would like to start folding post the comment; "I am a new folder" I will then create the list and delete all the unnecessary posts. Remember if you change status (at any time) post here again with one of the above comments so that the list can be updated. Also if you use a different user name when folding post it here. Thanks.
  3. Yes, when you have the 2 new drives plugged in the nvidia sata ports, go to the RAID setup menu and you will have the option to create the new array choosing the drives listed in the "Free disks column"
  4. Hello, If you check the control panel > Sounds and Audio devices. Go to the Audio tab. What has it got for your sould playback field? (default device) And obvisously make sure all the volumes are up.
  5. The CD states not to be sold separately. So are you selling the nvidia 8800 series gfx card to? Got to enforce the FS rules so sorry if this causes any inconvenience.
  6. Yes it does but the CPU also plays a very important part. And the memory modules must be matched for the best possible compatibility. Is that a Winchester core cpu? If so you must set the memory to 333DDR. Change these to Cas latency (tCL)....................3 RAS to CAS delay (tRCD)..............3 Min RAS active time (tRAS)...........8 Row precharge time (tRP).............3 If that does not help there is probably not much more that you can do. Just to test something, Try just the new kit and 2.8v Then test just the old kit at 2.8v.
  7. Yeah good idea to start with the gfx card first.
  8. Make sure you change the memory timings to AUTO when you try the PC3200 module. Is there a possibility that you can use another PSU? (borrow) Something at least 500W and from a company like OCZ, Corsair, Hiper, FSP, Tagan, Silverstone, Antec and PC-power&cooling. And reduce the power load, use a cheap PCI-E card?
  9. Brings back memories of Sygate Personal Firewall Pro . Worth reading out of interest, thanks for the link.
  10. Hello, When installing the nvidia drivers do not install the IDE SW drivers and firewall (Network access manager). But as you had some BSODs during the Windows setup it something else. Jeantech power supplies are not that good. Do you have all 3 power connectors plugged in the board? Some memory timings to test. GENIE BIOS Setting >DRAM Configuration DRAM Frequency Set (MHZ).............200 (DRAM/FSB:1/01) Command per clock (CPC)..............Enabled Cas latency (tCL)....................2.5 RAS to CAS delay (tRCD)..............3 Min RAS active time (tRAS)...........6 Row precharge time (tRP).............3 Row cycle time (tRC).................11 Row refresh cycle time(tRFC).........14 Row to Row delay (tRRD)..............2 Write recovery time (tWR)............2 Write to read delay (tWTR)...........AUTO Read to write delay (tRWT)...........AUTO Refresh period (tREF)................AUTO Write CAS latency (tWCL).............1, not in later BIOS DRAM Bank Interleave.................Enabled DQS Skew Control.....................AUTO DQS Skew Value.......................0 DRAM Drive Strength..................AUTO DRAM Data Drive Strength.............AUTO Max Async Latency....................6ns Dram Response........................Normal Read Preamble Time...................5ns Idle Cycle Limit.....................AUTO Dynamic Counter......................AUTO R/W Queue Bypass.....................AUTO Bypass Max...........................AUTO 32 Byte Granularity..................AUTO If you try running 3dmark01se does it crash? http://downloads.guru3d.com/downloadget.ph...2283599d05901d1 And if you try Prime95 (bland test) what happens. http://www.mersenne.org/freesoft.htm
  11. Yeah that is virtually what it is, enclosure internals. I have used these at on all sorts of drives and never had an issue. Even if you don't use the additional power adaptor it shouldn't fry your ports.
  12. Yeah RAID and imaging is not that simple. If the RAID controller does a good job of combining the drives on a hardware level, then when you try to image/restore the image it may work for a RAID 0 array. That will work but you would still be faced with the above issue if it is on the RAID 0 array. I think I have said enough, I don't want to sound like I am forcing you to use a particular setup But what about, 2x250 RAID 0 for your OS/games 1x250 for storage 1x250 for pagefile and backups < more efficient pagefile + backups You can always experiment and see which one seems more suitable for your requirements. In my PC I have 1x80GB for windows/programs 1x80GB for storage and pagefile 1x160GB external for backups. (mainly what I have on the storage drive) Over the years I have collected quite a bit of data and if I were to lose it, well I am sure you can imagine how I would feel. :sad:
  13. When you say faster, what do you mean/expect to gain. - What is it that you believe the RAID array will do for you? And what are you going to use the PC for? - File server - Gaming - Desktop use (Internet/Word/DVDs) The RAID array will only improve loading and windows XP is quite fast with 2GB. Yes the RAID array should give it a boost but for Desktop use you wont really notice the gains. Gaming, level loading times will be faster. And it may seem more responsive due to the quick page file access. (only if the game is taking a lot of memory) File server, this is probably the only one that you will really see the gains. If you have people streaming from your PC or have a multimedia setup (PC>TV) then it will be a lot smoother. And if you are trying to do all of the above at the same time it will help.
  14. Hello, (Thanks for letting me know ) Was that with the latest nvidia drivers too?
  15. This one will be ok but costs more. http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku...facture=MUSHKIN This one is also very good but if you really want to spend the money I would recommend the above Mushkin kit. http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku...CZ%20Technology This is a good buy. http://www.memory-configurator.co.uk/produ..._kit/index.html
  16. Seems to have issues with my current setup. When first running memtest 2.0 it appears to lag. After a while it then seems to jump to 25% of test#1 Then it lags, then it gets to 50% of test #1 Then more lag. It does that until test#1 is complete, test #2 and #3 went ok. I stopped at that point. Once it has done the lag and completed test #1 if I manually choose test #1 it is ok. but if memtest is restarted C 7, it happens again. Also it messed up on the memory timings once and shows very low values for the L1 cache and L2 cache.
  17. Hello, Prime95/memtest does not use the GFX card, when you play a game this = max power drain. 2 years old, usually the first thing to go is the PSU. You mentioned that the temps are not over the top, what are the CPU, PWM and chipset temps when at load?
  18. To avoid confusion, The HTT BUS is actually only 1000Mhz. Because this is also like a DDR based BUS some people say it is 2000Mhz. Just remember that the true value is, Base clock (FSB) x the HTT ratio.

  20. http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/File-M...der-Nuker.shtml Never used it but sounds like it is what you are looking for.
  21. Hello, How long have you had the power supply? And can you get hold of another one to test in the board?
  22. Hello, When your in windows and mutitask with it at 2.7v is it ok?
