  1. Hello,


    I just recently moved transfered my components to a new case and after having connected everything, all seemed fine. However now I cannot go into the BIOS screen because during startup the keyboard and mouse are not being powered somehow during POST. Once i go into windows the mouse and keyboard work fine in USB.


    The only way I can access the BIOS is by inserting the PS/2 adapter. The only thing I did different during the transfer to the new case was attaching the firewire remote extension and moving my audigy zs from the pci 2 slot to pci 1.


    As you can see it's not really a critical issue but I want to resolve it nonetheless. I also double checked to make sure the 5v power cable was attached so that's not the problem either.


    Thank you

  2. Well that is what I started out with, then I even tried 3.2v and 3.3v but still had the same problem. I also improved my cooling this time around. I have a 80mm fan blowing directly on top of the RAM and another at an angle blowing from left to right across the upper right hand corner of the mobo and the RAM.


    I have no idea what could be causing my system not to go just hang up like that. This is really bumming me out. I was looking forward to better overclock and a cure to the cold boot problem. This is what I got instead. :(


    I just ran prime95 for 20 min to make sure that mem and cpu where somewhat stable and no errors there.


    Could the BIOS flast have gone wrong? Then again if that was the case I don't think I would be typing this right now.



  3. Hello,


    I just updated my bios to 623-2 to see if the cold boot issue was fixed. Negative on that. However now everytime I reboot my computer 1 red LED light stays on and the computer doesn't boot to the OS, the monitor goes into power saving mode.


    The only way I can get back in to windows is to wait about 10 minutes and then it will bring me to the screen that says that windows had encountred a hardware error and could not load properly. I select to start windows normally and then everything is fine. This also happens everytime I go in and out of the BIOS.


    Since I flashed to the new bios the system is not overclocked and currently my vx is getting 3.1v, however I did move the ram to the yellow slots, since I understand those are the best with this bios revision, and I am back on the 5v jumper.


    Please help. Cold boot was annoying, but this is worst. :confused:

  4. I really don't want to mess with the PSU and changing the voltage on the 3.3 rail. However what you say about the different current levels on the orange slot may be the reason why one stick of RAM behaves different from the other when dealing the cold boot. For example one stick will work on slot 2 but the other won't work on the same slot.


    I'm going to download the 7/02-2 bios and switch my ram to the yellow slots. Hopefully this will do it. If not I'm going to return my ram to ocz and get something different. If I was going to use a divider on my new righ I wouldn't have bought the VX.


    Wish me luck! :)

  5. I have been away from the forum for a while and I was wondering if a bios was out that fixed the cold boot issue primarly found when using the 5v jumper with OCZ VX memory.


    I have been running my memory on the 3.3v rail until this issue was resolved so I'm eager to get off the divider and try pushing 250x11 1:1 :cool:


    Thanks for the help

  6. That is what I'm trying to figure out. I was looking at the OCZ forums and it seemed to me that unless your PSU was modded to increase voltage on its 3.3v rail to say 3.7v, or you had one of those PSUs that have adjustable rails, the vdimm couldn't go above 3.1v since it couldn't draw more v than the motherboard was provided with by the rail.


    Am I wrong in thinking this?



  7. LazyBum, I'm having the same problems running stock speed and trying to get the VX stable. I've entered some settings that are helping with running prime past an hour and now I'm upping the voltage, currently 3.4v.


    I'm using bios 3/10 and it looks like this tREF setting maybe on of the most important for the VX. Does anybody know where to find the CPC enable/disable option? It's not in the DRAM settings.



  8. brantk, did you see the biggest improvement when switching to a different bios, slots or increase in voltage (thought you ran at 3.1v)? I tell I'd really hate to have to remove the module from slot 4 under the 7700cu.


    CPC enable. Where do I find this? It's not in the DRAM setting section on my bios, I use 3/10.


    Thanks again

  9. Update:


    I was unable to pass prime95 overnight. It did however have its longest run since I began testing my new build, failing a little over 5 hrs.


    I'm going to try using 3.1v and see if that makes a difference. If anybody out there with the same kind of RAM can give me some more suggestions I would appreciate it.
