  1. I put back together my SLI-DR testing with some bh-5/ and 2 opterons. This time, I took an ATI video card X1300 256mb. On the boot-up logo, the color looks real off and funny than my normal Nvidia card. Is there any way to "fix" the problem? Is this normal? thanks,
  2. What will be the max fan current I can use on the MOBO's header? I am abit worried plugging some of fans and blow up a nice board. Thanks, Jack
  3. My problem is even stranger. If I do any sort of dual stress testing, then windows shutdown screen will not disappear. On a normal operation cycle (w/out dual stressing), the system shuts down fine.
  4. It had the 8 pin conector. However, the system hangs with one LED at startup. I have to turn off PSU, hit the powerswitch a few times. Then turn on PSU, and it will boot. Then the system may hang again... I switched back to TruPower and didn't have the same problem again.
  5. Since we are on this topic, i would like to share my experience... I had problems with the enermax 600W noise taker with the Expert board. I then switched to Antec TruPower 2.0 550W and everything was fine. The Enermax, however, works on my SLI-DR w/out a hitch.
  6. I have opty 175 on Expert board. with dangerden H20. Idle = 21~23 Load (1.424V) = 32C Previously I had 4400+ X2 on SLI-DR Idle = 30 Load = 44C on the same H20 Setup. But I think the Opty is a bit cooler and I did a better job with the AS5 on the Opty this time./
  7. That may be the problem since I am using Enermax 600W.... I can get it back into bios but hving problem with my prev version of windows with stock settings. (RAM tested ok in memtest.) While I was trying to install a new version, the PC will reboot. I will try again with a diff PSU.
  8. I posted another thread regarding no post after switchig to SLI. Then I read this post again and tried your method if that is related to the cold bug. A few times after turn PSU off and power on. I got to the NF4 UT Expert LOGO screen. then a few more times of the same procedure, I got into BIOS. Then my keyboard would freeze up. What causes the cold bug? thanks.
  9. Hi guys, Pls help me. I probably made a mistake by setting: From Advanced Bios Features - SLI Broadcast ENABLE From the Genie Bios - PCI Express Configuration 8-4-NC-8 From the Genie Bios - Dual 6600 GT Cards Support - ENABLED Now, the LED will get stuck wth only 1 LED. Screen is black. I can't get back into BIOS. I tried clearing CMOS. Safeboot. None of them helps me get back into posting or BIOS. What can I do? thanks....
  10. I had my 4400 at 2.7 at one point, but performace seems to have backed off. My most stable is 2.55 G now.
  11. heheh.. I want one bad! but I am going to wait for the 180
  12. FYI, I had to use a differnt single stick in orage slot (furtherst from cpu) to boot. then set vdimm to 2.8. then replace with one of the ballistix.. or you can try to hold the insert key when you power on the system.... that may get u into bios
  13. You guys are lucky. I can only get 2.65 with 1.55 (MBM).
  14. I think the toughest part really is to find the ram timing / bandwidth that makes you happy. but if you are using 11 multi, it probably wont' go over 250FSB. So that is not a problem. and you should try CAS 2.5 since most people were able to do taht with < 250 FSB. It takes a lot of time to find what works for your rig and what doesn't. Every rig is different so you can only use other ppl's settings as a guideline.
  15. Thanks, the INSERT key method worked. I was able to get into bios and messsed around...
  16. While I am still messing around with my RAM configurations, my pc stopped posting. I, therefore, tried the safe boot pin and also clearing CMOS. Then the system won't post at all and it keeps getting stuck with 2 LED's. I understand it means VGA not detected so I tried to remove the SLI connection, set the SLI jumpers back, reset CMOS, and everything over and over again. I tried using one VGA card on each individual slot and I have swapped cards to ensure the card wasn't the problem. I keep getting stuck at 2 LED's. The sequence of the LED'S is: 4 > 3 > 2 then it goes back to 4 > 3 > 2 then it gets stuck there. The Power LED keeps flashing, yet nothing happens. Can anyone help me please? thanks and regards,
  17. You should read sticky. It gave me a lot of help...
  18. What should be the max rates for the Nvidia and Marvell NIC? Should they be in 100MB/s range? I did a benchmark on the current Nvidia and it returns with 10MB/s only. Is it the cable that is causing the bottleneck? Thanks, Jack
  19. I don't think it's possible to run 2 monitors in SLI mode.
  20. What does the X2 driver do exactly? Will I be able to OC higher with the driver? I am assuming that I have all the hotfixes installed already....
  21. I checked my inventory and saw just tons of parts I used while OC'ing in the past. Right now I have 1 extra two 2.4C stepping M0, tons of 256 bh-5 modules, Adata pc4000 (rebatched bh-5)... Should I keep these parts? I can't get much for selling them right?
  22. My situation is similar. basically I am running into a hurdle at around 2.6. and my Vcore is currently 1.65 (MBM reading.) I hope to figure out something soon. I had 2.7 stable for a while then it just started going downhill.
  23. I am trying to get the smart HD temp to work. Currently I have 2 sata on NVidia Raid. Can anyone help me please? Thank you!
  24. With FSB above 250, what Chipset voltage do you guys have?
