    Best MOD ever!

    You know, the more I look at this thing, the more I wonder if it even is a computer... Allow me to explain... Yes, it looks like and could pass as a computer case, but... Do you see a motherboard? Do you see anything that resembles computer hardware? I see what LOOKS like a PSU, and something that LOOKS like a CD-ROM drive, but other then that, I can't tell. And the two things I just mentioned don't REALLY look like they are anything that could be useable. The rest of the items look like it's a bunch of watercooling hoses, and hoses in the case for the simple fact of putting hoses in there.This case just looks like a bunch of wires going everywhere, for a pure aesthetic motive. Hell it would be cool if it were a working computer, and you'd bet your butt I'd show it off if it were mine. All I know is, if that really IS a working computer, that has got to be one classy lady to upgrade...

    Anyone up for a post a pic of yourself thread?

    Being in Japan and seeing their currency almost daily, it kind of looks like Japanese currency. However, it looks more like Korean or Phillipino currency.

    I personally find it hilarious when I see pictures like Mayhem posts. I think South Park is a little overkill, but the general idea is amusing to me. Mayhem, seeing how much fun your little boy is having almost makes me want to have a son!

    Cant post in For Sale thread????

    I don't understand what the big hooplah is anyhow... They are rules common to any online trading forum... how can that be copyrighted? That's like saying you can't eat your bread a certain way without asking permission because someone else copyrighted it... If they classy lady and cry about it, just change some wording, move the order around and call it a day. I don't think anyone here at DFI did anything wrong.

    Hurricane Katrina - Now with Video Link

    Prayers from Japan to you. Being from the Gulf Coast (Galveston, Texas), I know how bad these storms can get! Oh, and don't let anyone try to tell you that a typhoon is as bad as a hurricane... I've been through like 20 typhoons since I've been here in Japan, and it's all just a bunch of rain... It hardly even makes thunder or lightning here! Nothing compared to the colossal storms that hit the gulf coast! Like I said roadie, we'll be praying for you over here in Japan.

    FS: WinTV PVR-150

    I have a "barely used" PCI personal video recorder. It comes with the card, a remote, the driver CD, and the cable IR cabe that you point your remote at, which plugs into the back of the card. http://www.hauppauge.com/pages/products/data_pvr150.html Bought it for $100, selling it for $50OBO. Not willing to go too much lower, however. I'm telling you, I've used this thing once, and realized I didn't want to record TV and edit video and all that stuff. It's a really handy little device. If you want to buy it, make a response in this thread. I'll set up a private auction via eBay just to make sure the sale is legit. I only accept Paypal and I can only ship USPS priority mail. And since I live in Japan, it will take about 7-10 days to get to you. I'll add $5 for shipping to whatever the final price is.

    NF4 Ultra-D> black screen after boot

    For the record, I think you'll find Splinter Cell is more graphically intense then City of Heros on the highest settings.

    Have you checked what the BIOS temps are reporting? Also try installing Motherboard monitor 5.
  15. you don't need to have your OS installed to flash your BIOS. You can do it any number of ways! I'll list 3 here: 1) floppy drive 2) CD-Rom drive 3) USB flash drive I'll find a sticky on detailed info on how to flash your BIOS and post it here for you. *EDIT* Here it is: http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread...ight=BIOS+Flash This is a detailed BIOS thread, but if you scroll down to the bottom of post #3, you will see how to flash your BIOS with a floppy drive. *EDIT* Here's another good read that talks about flashing with a CD-ROM drive, and myself talking about doing it with a USB flash drive: http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread...=USB+BIOS+FLASH
  16. That's probably what your problem is, the 1/25 BIOS. Go ahead and upgrade to the latest official BIOS on the DFI website, and I would wager that would solver your problem. Click here for a direct link to the page where you can download the BIOS for your board. The 3/10 version incorporates: 1. NVMM 4.85 and NV RAID 4.81. 2. Enhanced memory compatibility. 3. Enhanced USB Compatibility. 4. Enhanced the support of Athlon 64 in version E3(Venice), E4(San Diego). and the 6/23 version incorporates everything above, as well as: 1. Patch Dual-Core CPU performance problem. 2. Add Errata 123 option. 3. Add ACPI SRAT option.

    Also, what temp monitoring software are you using? Is it reporting 40C in the BIOS?

    See! That wasn't so bad, was it! Well, since we're all commenting on how each other looks... and seeing as how I was told I look like a cousin of the Brady Bunch... I'll go ahead and say.. Alexia, your haircut looks like something The Beatles would sport! All jokes aside, your hair is longer now, eh? Are you trying to grow it out really long?

    It sounds to me like you may have applied your HSF on improperly, or there is not sufficent contact with the CPU. Effectively, your CPU should not be more then maybe 4-5C higher then your room when it's idle if you have proper AS5 with the XP-90. My suggestion would be to clean your XP-90 and proc, re-apply the AS5, and try to make good contact with the CPU. I think A_G posted a thread around here somewhere that shows huge pictures of cleaning and mounting his HSF. (Maybe it's the NF4 North Bridge I'm thinking about) Either way, it would be a good idea for you to read that thread and look at his pictures to mimic the way he did things.

    What do you guys think, am I breaking the rules? The rules say: Selling/Trading CD Keys The Selling or Trading of CD-KEY(s) without the original disks is not allowed. However, as you can see in my post, I explain the situation. http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=21486 What say you?

    your first girlfriend?

    I hear you on that one A-G! I'm slowly turning my wife into a nerd... I got her playing WoW with me! (we've only played once so far last night, but we play to play a lot more!) Oh by the way, did you want a WoW 14 day free trial? I have two left that I'm willing to give you and momma... so long as you guys hop on a teamspeak/ventrillo server with my wife and I, and all four of us play together! I have the CD-Keys ready and willing to give to you if you're interested.
