  1. We are talking about Intel aren't we? Cool And Quiet is an AMD thing. As far as the speedstep is concerned, it does kick in when you setup your manual overclock, and automaticaly adjusts both the multi and the Vcore. To turn it off, you need to disable the C1E function under Advanced Settings-> CPU (I think)
  2. Thanks for the help guys. I've requested an RMA from OCUK to get the board changed. Like you Canalla, I've asked to change it for an ASUS. However, I've been reading alot over at xtremeSystems that the DFI is a good board and that I'd be better off to stick with it and change the memory instead But that's another storey.
  3. Thanks for the help but I may have solved my problem. I've swapped out the Tagan for a Seasonic SS120 600w and the problem seems to have gone away. This might be a bit premature as I've only powered down and back up once. Time will tell.
  4. I think the 5 sec powerup problem is a different one from mine, everythings comes to life as soon as I hit the power switch (on the mobo). Yes I'd fully switched off/diconnected the PSU before plugging in the HDD. I haven't been able to try a weaker PSU yet as it means stripping another machine to do this. I suppose the problem isn't too bad as I don't have to clear the CMOS eash time, something I was doing to start with before I discovered that simply leaving it switched off would do the trick. btw, anyone know of a good OC guide for this board? I'm stuck at 342Mhz FSB.
  5. This is my first forey into Intel for many years so please bear with me if my question/problem is a bit nooby. I have: DFI Infinity 975x Intel Core 2 DUO E6300 with Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro 7 HSF HIS X1900XTX G.Skill 2GB DDR2 ZX PC2-6400 (2x1GB) memory 20Gb PATA HDD Samsung PATA DVD-ROM Tagan 1100w PSU Before first bootup, I cleared the CMOS and then booted, went into BIOS, set the date/time and loaded optimised defaults. I then rebooted (F10) and realised I hadn't connected the HDD power supply. So I shut down completely, connected the power connector and then powered up. This is where the "fun" started. It wouldn't post. The board powers up, all the fans and peripherals spring to life, just no POST beep and nothing on the screen. After much tinkering (clearing CMOS, removing CMOS battery, moving and removing components etc) I've found that after ANY power down, you have to wait at least five minutes before powering back up. Has anyone else observed this behaviour? Any help/advice would be much appreciated. This is really lame but, I bought the CPU from Overclockers.co.uk. The blurb says its a 'Conroe' and CPU-Z reports it as a Conroe. But the headline at Overclockers.co.uk says its and Allendale. So what is it? http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/Int..._Core_Duo2.html
  6. Presumably you've tried the GPU in both x16 slots? Do you have an old PCI graphics card you could try?
  7. Looks OK on ATTO I guess but the average HD Tach figure is a bit diappointing consdiering there are 4 disks.
  8. Do the SPD values really make any difference if you set everything manually? My rig is fine with 4 sticks but then my SPD values are the same on all four sticks.
