  1. those settings did not allow all 4GBs of ram to be noticed in the BIOS or Vista plus... those settings are abit slow, i just found some random settings on a thread on this forum and used them. Is there a way to have it run at 1T and 2.5-3-2-5 settings??
  2. i tried 2.5-3-2-5 with all 4 sticks in, No Boot I upped the volts to 2.7v, No Boot What else can i try?
  3. I sent you an email. After doing exactly what you said i got 2-3-2-5 for my older v1.0 sticks and 2.5-3-2-5 for my new sticks what bios configurations do i need to make at this point?
  4. Ok i will try this but one thing... the new sticks of ram i bought have a larger heatspreader. So i can not fit the stick in the closest orange slot to the cpu cause my zalman heatsink is in the way. Only my older smaller sticks ive had for a year now can fit into the orange slots. Can i still do the testing with the yellow slots?
  5. So about a year ago i bought a pair of 1GBx2 sticks. OCZ PC3200 DDR400 Platinum Edition. These sticks have the label v1.0 on them. Well until recently i bought the same pair of sticks to fill my slots to 4GB. They are the same exact sticks but they seem alittle bigger than the v1.0. And obviously they are a different revision. When i try to insert all 4 sticks in the slots and boot, the computer just gives a black screen and beeps continuously. I can boot using my new 2GB sticks just fine. But when i combine all 4 It will not boot. Is there a setting in the bios or some fix i can do to get all 4 sticks to work, being the same exact sticks, but different revisions?! EDIT: So i got all 4 sticks in now working. running these settings... 200mhz CAS 2.5 3 3 6 8 2T 256clocks BUT cpu-z is the only thing that reads 4096MBytes of Memory. While my BIOS and Vista still only reads 2046MBytes. Whats the deal??
  6. i use to run about 40-45c under load with the evercool at 5,000rpm+ so ya i guess its fine i was just wondering how it would increase that munch. the enviroment my computer is in has not changed.
  7. My NB temp has increased out of the blue somehow. I replaced the stock fan with the evercool one (with new paste) about 6months+ ago. Since then the temps were reasonable but now i reach NB temps as much as 50-55c under load. 47-49c idle. the evercool fan spins around 5,000rpm all the time and im still getting bad temps. Whats going on? do i need to remove the fan and reapply new paste or?

    help a friend of mine out, he needs the cash! or offer a price on this thread.
  9. yeah i changed the case to that exact one without the window. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16811112099 the shipping fee on performance-pcs is insane! so what im hearing is xion powerReal isn't a good psu for dfi motherboards. the thing has full 5 star reviews and insane dual rail amps, better than any other if seen for under 100 BUCKS!
  10. yeah mail-in rebates take forever. i think they do it for a reason, to make you forget about it lol
  11. I'll probably just buy the Audigy 2ZS or X-FI extreme cause i want deep bass.
  12. Got another question, should I wait for the new line of amd cpus to be released so I can get a 165 or 4400+ for cheaper. If so i'd probably just by a temporary AMD Opteron 144 Venus for 170 and later upgrade to the 165 or 4400. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16819103600
  13. That Xion PowerReal seems to be best bang for the buck with its [email protected], [email protected] and 600w. It has full 5star reviews too. Is there anything better or equal that is under $100? are 2 x250gb 16mb hdds really better than 2 raptors in raid? cause i have those WD 16mb hdds now in raid0 in my current rig and they're fast but i would think the raptors with their low seek/read/write time would be better. Are there still problems with X-FI cards beacuse i havn't really heard much good about them.
  14. i have that case except mine has a window. it gets good airflow and always stays cool but the design is sorta werid with the two flaps on the front.
  15. Heres my upcoming build. Any suggestions or advice welcome! Will hardware (cpu, gpu, etc) prices drop anytime soon?
