  1. hi all, as the topic says in my bios i have VID on 1.5, special on 1.04... thus 1.56 in MBM5 and CPU-Z i get 1.50, or when loaded 1.52... what gives? which do i believe? cheers dave
  2. guys this thread is way off-topic Oscar - dont worry about it - it's called Beta software for a reason!... What I would like to know is I have run up 704-2 on my Ultra-D, at the moment I have VID=1.35, Spec = 104%, Startup=Auto. If i bump them all to auto will that be safe? I won't over-volt until a new 704 is released Also whats the deal with Startup VID??? Cheers Dave
  3. interesting.. obviously 2gb would make a big diff in load times, but i wouldn't have thought much once in the game... yeah have u tried 1t?
  4. im shocked.. obviously 3dmark05 doesn't show the 7800 as a very good card.. sli 6600gt will get you 7000... sli 6800ultra will get you 9500+ but i guess it doesn't matter - so long as in games its better ps i think u may have too much money if you can afford 2 gtx's
  5. hey man, no offense but shouldn't a 7800gtx get like 12000+ in 3dmark? my 6600gt gets 4200
  6. hrmm so is this an advantage over 310? ooh i just had a deijavu moment...
  7. nah.. on mine Auto = 1T... I have to set to disabled (2T) otherwise i get memtest errors... on stock - which is weird coz i run 218,@2.8v,1.5-2-2-6 2T fine
  8. mate what is your CPC set to? Auto/Enabled/Disabled? I had bad BSOD's with it on Enabled/Auto, try Disabled. This will make your memory goto 2T rather than 1T...
  9. guys.. where do we find beta bios's? cheers dave
  10. try changing your CPC to disabled. i have OCZ ram and it cant handle CPC @ 1T..
  11. hey bud.. i had the same problem.. is you ram running at 2T or 1T timing (for CPC)?? set it to disabled (2T) and see if that fixes it
  12. haha i had xp install problems too try turning off CPC - ie make the command timing 2T instead of 1T...
  13. yeah - cool s/pdif should be raw sound ive gone with nforce as its pacakged unlike realtek thanks
  14. UPDATE: ok so i changed CPC to 2T (or disabled) and now i got upto pass #7 in memtest ok... also i just installed XP without any errors... looks good. anyone know why my memory cant handle 2T? OCZ Value VX DDR-400 1Gig paired? Cheers dave
  15. hrmm ok memtest just threw up 2 errors on pass 5 and 12 errors on pass 6... been running for 2:30 hours... the Mobo is detecting the right memory settings ie 2.5-4-4-8 and thats what the ram says on the cover.. what should i do?
  16. thanks for the IO explaination.. i see your point about the USB devices.. i will unplug the things i have plugged in and just plug in the mouse will let u know - memtest is upto 45 mins running fine
  17. PS .. what is the I/O shield refered to in that thread... i saw it it in the manual (as being parts included) but i dont know what it is... btw im not a noob at building PC's, i have been doing so for about 10 years... just new to DFI and AMD64's edit: oh is the IO sheild the back plate? ie where the ports hang out of the back of the machine...
  18. ive tried a different SATA cable. I will try a different ATA cable for the DVD drive... the drive isn't new and it was working fine in another computer... I will try a different drive as well
  19. yeah all 4 powers are in. the memtest run upto 100% on the first pass.. the cd is only about two weeks old and ive installed 2 other systems (athlonxp and p4) with it. i tried a non slipstreamed cd and the install got futher but still having weird reboots and errors... what else could it be? do i need to let memtest run longer? or prime run longer?
  20. I have the same problem - well in that i can install windows without a BSOD.. i get different BSOD's all the time in different places...
  21. so does the Ultra-D have two uadio controllers? i just get how u can switch from one to the other?!?!?
  22. Hey all, i was refered here from OCAU! ok so i just got: ultra-D OCZ VX Value 1 gig/pair antec truepower 2 480W XFX 6600GT Venice 3200+ Firstly i have left the bios defaults, updated to 310 and then loaded optimised defaults... When i try to install xp-sp2 (Slipstream) i get random BSOD's and errors, the error is usually something like C:$SECURE is corrupt, BSOD is random... I always get these errors when windows xp installer screen says "30 mins left..." (on that section of the install anyways) memtest86+ runs fine with no errors seagate diagnostics quick and full scan passes fine with no errors... prime torture test (from live cd) runs ok with no errors.... the only thing i have done is swapped the S/PDIF jumper to NFORCE output rather than Realtek output... any ideas? cheers dave
  23. Hi All, on the ultra-D what does the S/PDIF jumper do... i want sound over s/pdif and when its going through "realtek 850" i dont get any - but through nforce4 i do.. i dont understand... please explain cheers dave
