  1. For the past few months, occasionally, when I boot, the RTC sets the date back to 12/31/2002. It doesn't happen everytime or often, but it is a pain to have to reboot and set the clock and date. With Vista, no matter what time i set in the BIOS, it always sets it one hour ahead in Windows. Stupid new DST. Now today when I booted for the first time, I got a BIOS checksum error and had to reset everything. I never have any problems when the system is up and running, only when I start it. One would think if the RTC battery ws going kaput, it would happen all of the time, but it doesn't. It can go a day, week, or month before I have to fix the date/time. Suggestions?
  2. I would definitely suggest spending 6 bucks more for the brass top. Brass won't crack.
  3. All the other ones you could just pop in the previous OS CD and there you go. I guess they now want to make sure you have XP that you can activate before they let you upgrade. Now if I ever want to reinstall Vista, I have to load XP first and then do an upgrade.
  4. Actually 5.9 is the highest you can get. I get 5.9 on everything except the CPU. What's it take to get a freakin 5.9? I've got a C2D 6600 running at 3.2. The only thing I hate with Vista, besides it using 300 MB more memory, is you can forget about ever using a stereo mix to record "what you hear". I'm sure the DRM has pressured the sound card manufacturers to block it. I've tried a soundcard from Soundblaster and Turtle Beach as well as onboard and nada. The onboard didn't work with XP, but the other two did. The good thing is the Audigy 2 doesn't pop anymore playing music like it did with XP.
  5. After only two months, I lose the time after I turn my system off. It started this morning. I only noticed because my a/v was complaining about the date. Sure enough, it always goes back to 1/1/03. I should make DFI send me one, but it's not worth the headache. Anyone know of the part number for like a Duracell?
  6. I haven't had any cold boot problems since I installed 9/13.
  7. Actually, they were smart not to take the gun. I believe stealing a gun may be a federal crime. Did you not have insurance?
  8. This: http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showpost.p...67&postcount=24 Was giving me load temps of 65c in an 18c ambient room. That would mean in a normal environment of 24c...that would be 71c. This is watercooled with a Storm and a double heatercore. I've backed it off to 3.2 for normal 24/7 use at stock V-Core.
  9. I believe that the C2D diodes are calibrated better than AMD. It wouldn't surprise me if the AMD's weren't actually 15-20c higher than reported.
  10. Bah... two big. Too power hungry. Totally unnecessary for any games now or for years and years in the future. Software companies are in buisiness to make money. No one in their right mind is going to develop any game that only 1% of systems can play. Talk about a money losing proposition.
  11. I don't think so Raju. I think it adds support for unlocked multipliers up for Extreme Edition CPUS. I guess the Extreme's were locked from going to higher multipliers on this board.
  12. First off, do you NEED 1.75v on the NB and +.075v on the CPU extra to get 3.2 stable on your system? I'm running 3.2 as my 24/7 with stock voltages on everything. The 1.75v really seems like overkill for such a low OC. (Don't you love the C2D's? 800 MHz is considered low. ) This is what I use if you have the room: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16835109128 My N/B is currently at 27c, but it is chilly in here at about 18c.
  13. Well another one posted. Close enough to 3700 for me.

  15. I live in a very small apartment.... ~750 sq. ft. This is the only place in the entire apartment that this will fit. I would prefer to put it in the living room, because instead of watching this TV while on the CPU: I could be watching this one:
  16. Ran it again and it is much better this time: 5072 http://www.pcpitstop.com/techexpress.asp?id=7DQFFWEBYSWSMXGC
  17. They are on the fan controllers. Vantec Nexus and Sunbeam. Even the power and hd LED's are the annoying blue. Add in the OCZ 700w...... I could just turn all my fans off including on the heater core when I'm plugging 1.550v through my C2D......
  18. I looked at the results closer and I scored a 58 MB/s memory read speed....when it is really more like 9000 MB/s. I also scored a lowly 100 on the video. I can possibly buy the video because I'm using hacked drivers for SLI. Bling is for kids. I wish I could destroy the LED's that are on there now. I have to put a towel over the front of the case if I leave it running so I can sleep.
  19. 1.75 is it. I don't believe there is any utility around this. IMO, if you are trying to get a good overclock, you need to do two things: 1. Lose the 4 sticks of RAM. Overclocking with 4 sticks is never as good as only two. Too much stress on the controller. 2. That PSU won't cut it. http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10854
  20. Intel specs say 60.1 as max, but that is the temp at the IHS, not the cores. That would make the cores in the 80's probably. If the CPU doesn't thermal throttle, it's not too hot as far as Intel is concerned. I'd never run one that hot for a long time, but I plan to keep mine at 65c or lower.
  21. I'm running an Orthos right now. I like these temps, but it's about 19-20c ambient. I love cool weather.
  22. Trying for 405 right now. It didn't fail Orthos immediately, so that may be a good sign. I'm chasing after you, dude. About time I get a CPU that can run with the best of them. If I can do what HG did, that is a win in my book. Are the 85.xx modded drivers better than the 84.xx? I have the .inf for the 85.xx's. If they are better I'll give them a try. If only Big Sam would do the 91.xx drivers or something FM certified.
  23. I ran a PC Pitstop test on my system and apparently my C2D system needs upgrading already:
