  1. The last time I used ITE was the 64bit version and it shut off my cpu fan completely. im just glad i was sitting here when it happened, now im back to good old mbm5.
  2. a newer update in windows x64 was screwing up alcohol and daemon but i dont know if they released any updates like it for xp32 or not. you might check the alcohol forum and see if anyone was having issues or not.
  3. Yep i remember reading through that whole thing and learning all the basics. I cant remember the last install i did attended lol. most of my clients builds i get the disk ready before i even have the parts to put it together, just makes life easier on me that way.
  4. If you want to use the f6 method you can use nlite to remove the old raid drivers so that it cant overwrite the nvidia ones when install completes. easier method is to remove them and just add the raid drivers to your unattended disk as mentioned above there is an article on it on msfn. http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=50659&hl There is the link been working great for me for months.
  5. The worst experience i have had shipping with ups involved a video card and them losing it in the portland hub for over two weeks. I recieved the replacement card before they even found the first card.I do not use ups anymore if at all possible, being a former employee i know how packages are treated by them. When i worked there we had a sup. who would sit outside the trailer and time us to make sure we were moving enough packages. 9 years ago that was 34 packages a minute in unload and 18 in load. I have seen gateway pcs have peoples feet all the way through them just from people trying to keep up that pace. most of the hubs use ancient roller systems that are known to crush packages to just about nothing.
  6. works with some games as well, americas army only needs one switch to go completely silent.
  7. for installing programs check out wpi windows post install wizard much easier to configure than writing .batch or .cmd files and you can listen to tunes while it installs. takes a little getting used to but works better than any of the other ones ive tried. very nice to set up clients computers with as you can keep your base install disk the same and edit out the programs they dont use.
  8. Thanks for the quick replies and a bump for ya too:)
  9. :shake: i am new to overclocking but have built quite a few computers and just like these other people my system has been running rock solid stable (overclocked no less) without any issues i did not cause myself. as far as clearing the cmos you should try playing with this msi socket a board i have if you want to see how many times you can clear your cmos in a week. lol alot of the issues people have with stability is not checking out what ram and power supplies work best with these boards. some time we need to get a thread going to let people know about success people have had with this board.(but after all this is a support forum) or maybe just check out the overclocking database and see some of the stable overclocks people have in there.
  10. http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread...1&highlight=mbm theres a great thread and the config file you need is there, the search function would have found it for you to.
  11. great guide exroadie, i used it to do my first mod on a chipset and it worked perfect on first boot up. i dont even have any cards to run in sli yet but its been in my plans for awhile. thanks man
  12. im still using my utt with 3.4 volts off the 5volt rail and i have been fortunate enough to never have had any issue, including the cold boot.
  13. search the forum mbm 5 config files or just load smart guardian off the disk that came with your mb. something i forgot to say was to use a molex that is not powering anything but the mb. take the software readings with a grain of salt, they are not the most accurate.
  14. yes you need to have the molex and all other psu connections to the mobo plugged in. it helps to supply power to the whole board. i have all four connnectors plugged in with the same power supply and have never had any problems.
  15. also try reading all the stickies theres alot of great info in them.
  16. http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread...60&page=1&pp=15 go read through this guide and search the stickies and if thats the premier value ocz ram you might need to run a divider.
  17. there seem to be problems running the .5 multis for cpu, i guess it cuases problems with the ram frequencies. you might want to try using the 8 or 9 multi instead.
  18. ive noticed the same thing since ive been using the yellow slots since i switched to the 414-2 and above bios.
  19. the board you have requires the 24 pin connector so leave that attached.
  20. its more than likely the power supply, ive never used one of those but i was trying a 20 pin psu until i got the money up for a new one and had similar issues until i got the ocz.
  21. i dont know how good your ram is at overclocking so you might want to try running a divider on it and make sure your ldt is set to 3 or auto if you want to hit 275. it took me a good couple weeks of playing with all the settings to finally get to 275x9 stable so just keep trying. some of these winchesters can be a headache but well worth the effort.
  22. its not recomended to use the half multi's, that could be why the ram drops its frequency.

  24. yeah im kinda stuck where im at now my winnie seems to be hitting her max, im hitting a prime 95 wall anything above 2475mgz no matter what i try. guess its time to save some money to get one of those san diego cores. :drool:
  25. looks like you got them working great now, good job my man.
