  1. sorry for double post, but can someone provide me a link to where the new beta bios' are? 6-18 and such.. thanks *EDIT* NM FOUND IT!
  2. thanks guys, i'll update and lower the timings right now and will report back.. and yes.. i thought the software monitoring programs were a bit wierd, at first I was running the 450w modstream and it was showing a 12v reading of 11.6* which may have been possible considering it is only 450w, then i switched to the 520w mod (2 days ago) and the readings are just slightly higher.. go fig=|.. anywho.. thanks again :nod:
  3. im doing 2.6ghz w/ 1.52v and my idle temps are 32 w/ load of 48-52 max. I use to get 28 idle but my load was still about 50 so I took off the waterblock and reinstalled it and im getting these temps now=.. my oc is arse.. 2.6 no matter what voltage i give it, probably time to play with memory timings
  4. I'm not sure whats going on with my mobo. I am setting the VID and SPECIAL VID as specified on the chart in the sticky, but when I come into windows and run smart gaurd, speedfan, or any other hardware monitor it does not show the same voltage readings that should be there for the CPU, it is actually quite a bit lower than what it states it should be in the table. Does this have anything to do with my CPU being recognized as a default V of 1.34? Also, I am getting strange readings on my 12v line in these programs as well.. I see 11.58-11.75 on my 12v rail, but when I use my analog multimeter its showing me a stable 12 (or slightly over/slightly under.. gotta go buy a digital reader tomorrow).. Now that I see two possible probs with my mobo readings it makes me wonder whether or not my temps are reading properly as well.. at idle i get roughly about 30 degrees celcius but during load it jumps all the way to 50.. any idea whats going on here? is there something up with my BIOS? I dont really wanna update unless absolutely necessary.. and if its recommended, which BIOS seems to be the most stable with my processor? I am getting a pretty garbage OC right about now, not sure if its the processor or some other factor. I am priming stable at the speeds below but once I try to get 248*10.5 I get prime errors in first 4 tests. It cant be my RAM since I am running it with a divider right now (cant remember exact.. but CPUz states its running at a mere 185mhz) thx
  5. never touched the ram, it is brand new out the pack and I havent been able to get a vid signal or less than 4led lights to be able to 'fcuk' with it in the BIOS nor was it off its default voltage jumper.
  6. ok, yet another update. Got a response from DFI RMA dept today and apparently everything is working on their end and there is nothing wrong with the mobo.. I forgot to tell them in my RMA form that I was using a San Diego processor as apart of my setup so I am not sure if they used that to test my mobo or the older winnies. Either way, I asked them to update me to the lastest BIOS so that I would have no problems w/ BIOS incompatibility. Now... I expect my motherboard here sometime nearing the end of this week or beginning of next, if it still fails to work than the only other thing left that I have been unable to test is my PSU. So for those with the 4 LED Debug problems I would suggest on top of testing your CPU and RAM in another computer, update your BIOS (at a store or friends house) and test your PSU as well before sending to the RMA Dept. I spent my $70 for overnight shipping and I cant get it back, but I can help you guys not to make the same mistake=) cheers and I'll update on what exactly was the culprit of my 4 led probs when I get my mobo back.
  7. just to update. I went to my local computer retail store, got them to slap in my RAM and CPU on an A8N and everything worked so therefore there is nothing left but the motherboard. BIOS is not an issue in my case since the BIOS shipped with my mobo is compatible (for boot anyways) with the new E core processors. I got in contact with RMA dept yesterday and today I shipped out my mobo via UPS express which cost me another $70 for overnight=(.. btw, I chose ups because Ive had bad experiences with USPS if shipped via Canada Post (bad being more than a month to receive a package that woulda taken 10 hours drive if I had gone to the states myself). Anyways, thanks for the help everyone but nothing can be done about a bad mobo except RMA unless someone wants to come over to my house and fiddle with the circuits and have a icy cup of coke (flat tho) as payment.
  8. been there done that for bout 12 hours. I went out to a computer retail store and got them to install my processor + ram onto their mobo and everything ran fine so the only thing left is the mobo and I've already started the RMA process with DFI. Thanks to all those that replied, hopefully when I get back my mobo everything will be in tip top condition. Cheers.
  9. just wondering something, if my BIOS does not support the processor, should I still be able to boot to see the DFI logo? or would nothing work at all and the 4 debug lights stay on?
  10. did exactly this as mentioned by RGone in one of the other threads and got nothing. All 4 lights with no beep and nothing more. Not even a light on my keyboard. Does anyone know the warranty policy on DFI's products? I cant seem to find anything anywhere, not on their box and not on their site.
  11. ok, did the 8 hour cmos clear and still nothing.. i really think its the board, going to try to get in touch with RMA today to see what can be done.
  12. any update wcg? I'm in a similar situation right now.. 4 red led's.. 3200 ocz gold vx.. except i never once got it to boot yet since it is brand new.. right now im waiting til the morn to restart from long cmos clear
  13. yes, not even a beep! I found that wierd myself. My guess is that it may be the mobo but I havent touched it since I had my 3000 Winchester which was about 2 months ago. I cant really test my components out since everyone I know has a non-939 mobo=.. all i can do is test my ram and vid card (which i know is working already).
  14. yes, tried 2nd pcie as well.. ok, i will give the 8hour thing a shot tonite as i try to get some sleep without ripping out my hair over my pc probs.. thanks for the help
  15. no, dont have a pci card=.. I tried the hard cmos reset, but only for 15 mins.. REALLY? 8 HOURS? holy.. if all else fails i guess ill give it a shot btw, any particular reason why it would take this long? and has it been successful for some ppl in the past?
