  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. 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.


  3. 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.


  4. 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:

    My N/B is currently at 27c, but it is chilly in here at about 18c.

  6. 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.


  7. 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.


  8. 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.
