  1. did you try to re-seat the cpu? also , all the 4 power connectors are connected?

     

     

    I'll try that right now. Yes all 4 power connectors are connected, but 1 Q?.. Do I connect the P4 connector or the +P4 to the 12v slot?

     

    Update: re-seated the cpu and still no post. Should I just RMA the cpu?


  2. I just got an x2 3800+, popped that in, smeared some as5 over it and mounted a zalman cpu cooler on it. I have it hooked up to a powerstream 520w and I impatiently attempted to boot the rig but realized I needed to update the bios. I popped out the bios chip and put it into my other rig and flashed it to tony's 702-b bios, then put it back in. It won't post and all I get is 3 LED's. So far, I've swapped the 6600gt with my 7800gtx and that is not the cause of the problem.

     

    My current specs at the time of writing is:

     

    - x2 3800

    - dfi ultra-d nf4

    - g skill pc 4000 1x2gb (1 stick sitting in the orange slot closest to the cpu)

    - ocz ps 520w

     

    Also I tried the insert trick on my ps/2 keyboard that didn't work. I am testing this setup outside of a case and didn't have the hdd hooked up to it when I tested it, but this can't be the cause of the error correct? As it should at least be able to post without an hdd.. right? That and 3 led's indicate a problem with the cpu... right? :confused:


  3. cabye isnt a bad stepping, you trying oc a cabge (cabbage) highest mine will go on stock V is 2.4ghz and need 1.65V to run @ 2.9ghz

    QFT.

     

    Got my opteron 144 today, was proper pissed when i saw the stepping; the infamous CABYE. Thinking i had just thrown money in the wastebin i started up the comp with it.. after 6 hours and still on stock voltage i'm running 2.8ghz 2h OCCT stable. Bad oc'er? In terms of opterons perhaps, but i'm satisfied :]

     

    where'dcha get urs from?


  4. @jester:

     

    only those that are serious enthusiasts/hobbists choose phase change. Save your money if you are not.

     

    I just want a liquid gameplay experience (ultra high fps). That's why I'm thinking about selling my 4000+ and getting a 4400+ X2 when the price drops (hopefully) next month. I think I'm over the whole phase change solution..


  5. Investment is not the right word for Phase change. Fun cool(no pun intended) or whatever but there are plenty of things that you can spend money on for performance. dont forget that the phase change needs to constanly use eletrisity and dont last forever. They also often cause your other components to brake too. I am not saying not to get one. They are a lot of fun but they are in no way an "investment".

     

    Which alternatives do you suggest? ;)


  6. Is a phase change system a good investment? I'm a college student, with a well paying part time job at a grocery store, and phase change looks like a very good investment to get the most out of cpu's. I'm looking at the Asetek Vapochill Lightspeed to go right under a Lian-Li PC-65b, will it fit this case? And do I have to do any cutting?
