  1. I had a strange experience and I thought I would like to share it with my fellow DFI-ers here, and maybe the uber techs can elaborate on it I had some problems last night while tweaking the memory , the computer froze on startup and stopped responding, it would go to the first screen displays one or two lines up to CPU info and freezes. So I thought oops OK let me reset CMOS. I always thought the procedure was, disconnect power , remove battery, change jumper from 1-2 to 2-3 ,wait a few seconds, change jumpers back , place battery back, power up , right?? Well system would not power up after many attempt, I tried waiting longer as suggested here in some posts. Now here is the kicker, I read somewhere about USB devices causing problems , so I disconnected USB devices, and I tried to power up, but I realized that I had forgotten to place the battery back and change the jumper back, I was like oh shiit now I'm gonna do some damage , however the computer started back up no problem, even booted into windows so I shut it down placed evertyhing back including USB devices and I was fine, until the next crash of course I guess I didn't learn my lesson. But on the next crash I didn't even bother removing USB devices, and again it wouldn't boot with the normal CMOS clear procedure, but I was able everytime to boot it with jumper in 2-3 and battery off. Now I dunno if battery off had any significance or the jumper been in 2-3 I didn't wanna test either. Am I missing something here? is this the way you're supposed to reset CMOS on DFI boards ??? or did I just discover a faster way then waiting all night as some suggest here? Well wahtever it is , it worked like a charm. AG, Rgone what's your thoughts on this??? Peace
  2. I found it guys, it is the LDT voltage value, play with your ldt voltage and double check.
  3. do you guys think this could be a bios bug, giving one core more then the other? we should check other motherboards and see if it's doing the same. off to google....
  4. yep I just downloaded the rpogram and checked mine: vcore1 1.30 vcore2 1.17 intersting find headshot.
  5. AG do you have the specs of the header, IE: max voltage/wattage that it can support ? thanks
  6. He was referring to the SLI edition, where is the SLI edition people, give us a hint comon. the one above is old news , been posted on nintek for over a week now. http://www.nintek.com.au/x/scripts/prodVie...?idproduct=2251
  7. Sorry your sig says 2-2-2, good luck with the RMA
  8. what model OCZ are you running at ,2,2,2 maybe your timing is too tight, relax them a little and run memtest
  9. very sorry that happened , if you don't mind sharing, did you know what caused the CPU to fail? was it over heat?
  10. it looks like in there next mobo (crossfire) the PCI-E are furthur apart and the chipset will be free from the video cards, AG are they gonna come up with SLI boards layed out the same way ? cause I will dump this one immediatly if they do, maybe with 2 16X PCI-E?
  11. GXP345 your solution is good, but unfortunatly would not work with SLI keeping an eye on this post to see who's gonna come up with a good SLI solution.
  12. Hmm I think I figured out the confusion, looks like pro707 has read the post (posted in his sig) and did the opposite mod because of this photo posted there: And I don't think he realizes that so he' referring to the mod here, however that wasn't the idea of the original modder, as he clearly stated that he used the the IBF4 fan on the stock heat sink. Well I dunno I'm really confused now :confused:
  13. Hmm, if you have read my post carefully you would have known that I was referring to his mod posted in his SIG, well I'll be more clear : go here: http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread...&highlight=fast Now browse down to post #17 Quote:"Yes I mounted the IB4 fan to the 'stock' heatsink,,,,,then mount the stock heatsink and IB4 fan to your board... you got it....I have faith in you....lol" Yes I'm confused too cause over at this thread he states other wise, well I think he is confused as well :nod:
  14. Hmm would it hurt to have it AG? should I uninstall it? I initially installed it to get cool & quiet going, but if it decreases performance I will remove it.
  15. I am a little confuse here, you say in this thread the the iceberq fits fine under you vga card yet , in you ather thread you say that you didn't not use the iceberq , you used the stock heatsink with the iceberq fan. am I reading either post incorrectly? I'm lost lead me please
  16. you will need that driver if you want to use coolNquiet, however installing I guess is always better then win XP driver, I did on mine.
  17. Can you please forward those memory settings to me via PM , I don't wanna bother Ryder anymore as he already helped me a lot before I upgraded to the 2G (2x1G) setup, I have a very identical system to yours. The best I'm getting now is 220x11 and I have to relax the timing for it to run stable, I would like to run it again at 2-3-2-5. thanks
  18. AG, do you what the OCZ (2x1GB) platinum are, should they be in orange or yellow slots?
  19. Yes you will be able to install windows , and yes you will be using both cores , however you will have performance problem until you flash, I installed all my system and drivers , I then realized when I was running benchmarks that my performance was so low speciallly my memory bandwidth, and thanks for the folks here they led me to flash my bios , then the system was flying after that.
  20. as long as both 6600's have the same bios yes.
  21. I agree with everyone here, about the design flaw, I have two 7800GTX's sitting in top of that chipset and it seems impossible to cool it down, I've tried setting fans blowing at it from many direction, it's just seems too jamed in there behind those big heat producing monsters and it's impossible to cool it. It's even impossible to mod a good heat sink fot it, nothing will fit there no clearance what so ever.
