  1. Alas, my set seems to have gone bad as well. I mentioned earlier in the thread that I was able to bsod my machine within seconds running BibblePro image editing program. I thought that I had corrected the problem by relaxing the memory timings a bit, so today just for fun I thought that I would try make sure the machine was still solid. About 4 seconds after I started opening jpgs in BibblePro, it blue screened. The machine runs for hours on OCCT torture test, but not the image edit for some reason. I will rma back to newegg and see what they come up with for a replacement.
  2. I changed my settings to 3 4 4 8 from 3 3 3 8 and the bsod from running Bibble pro disappeared. Switched it back and the bsods occurred immediately. I guess my memory won't run that tight at 3 3 3 8 @250. It is handy to get speedy feedback from bibble pro I guess. My settings are currently: Genie BIOS Settings: FSB Bus Frequency - 250 LDT/FSB Frequency Ratio - 4.0 CPU/FSB Frequency Ratio - 10.0 PCI eXpress Frequency - 100Mhz CPU VID StartUp Value - 1.500v CPU VID Control - 1.425v CPU VID Special Control - Above VID * 110% LDT Voltage Control - 1.40v Chip Set Voltage Control - 1.7v DRAM Voltage Control - 2.70v DRAM Configuration Settings: DRAM Frequency Set - 200=RAM/FSB:10/10 Command Per Clock (CPC) - Auto CAS Latency Control (Tcl) - 3 RAS# to CAS# delay (Trcd) - 4 Bus Clocks Min RAS# active time (Tras) - 8 Bus Clocks Row precharge time (Trp) - 4 Bus Clocks Row Cycle time (Trc) - 14 Bus Clocks Row refresh cyc time (Trfc) - 16 Bus Clocks Row to Row delay (Trrd) - 03 Bus Clocks Write recovery time (Twr) - 03 Bus Clocks Write to Read delay (Twtr) - 02 Bus Clocks Read to Write delay (Trwt) - 03 Bus Clocks Refresh Period (Tref) - 2592 Write CAS Latency (Twcl) - Auto DRAM Bank Interleave - Enabled DQS Skew Control - Auto DQS Skew Value - 0 DRAM Drive Strength - Auto DRAM Data Drive Strength - Auto Max Async Latency - Auto DRAM Response Time - Normal Read Preamble Time - Auto IdleCycle Limit - 016 Cycles Dynamic Counter - Enable R/W Queue Bypass - 16 x Bypass Max - 07 x 32 Byte Granularity - Disable(4 Bursts)
  3. I ran HCI memtest for 8 hrs or so - two instances with no problems. I thought that my Ballistix memory was sound. Then I installed a 14 day trial of Bibble Pro, and image editing program. With that program I can bsod the machine in less than a minute. ( simply use the "browse" function and go to directory of jpgs and then double click on individual jpgs - puts them in the "work queue" - it bsod's with less than 20 such jpgs ). I haven't run prime recently for any length of time. It ran in the past overnight without problem. Has anyone else tried this program by chance?
  4. Yes you are right, the sensors are off quite a bit. I just measured Vcore using a voltmeter, and it reads 1.62 which corresponds exactly with the bios configured value of 1.475 * 110%. The mbm reads 1.57.
  5. The mother board monitor shows 1.58v - not sure which value is most accurate though. I have been running this way for several weeks with no ill effects. However I don't usually run the cpus flat out at 100% for long periods of time, in the course of normal operation, so I don't generate the extra heat that the higher voltage produces, often. If I lower the voltage Prime fails - can't have higher speed without the heat
  6. FSB Freq: 270 LTD/FSB Ratio: x4.0 CPU/FSB Ratio: x10 K8 Cool/Quiet: Disable CPU VID Startup: 1.550 CPU VID Control: 1.475 CPU VID Special: Above VID * 110% LDT Voltage: 1.20 ChipSet Voltage: 1.50v DRAM Voltage: 2.80 DRAM Config: DRAM Frequency Set: 200(DRAM/FSB:1/01) Command Per Clock: enable CAS Latency: 3.0 RAS# to CAS# delay 03 Min RAS Active Time 08 Row Precharge 03 Row Cycle 12 Row Refresh 18 Row to Row 03 ... I am getting tired typing - is this enough info? Of course your mileage may vary as I understand it, no two chips are quite the same....
  7. Here are (some of) the bios settings from my machine: I compressed the photo a lot - hopefully you can still read it.
  8. I managed to get to 2.7Ghz on my 3800 but I had to put another fan blowing on the mb to keep the PWMIC temperature down. I get to about 60 on the CPU and 64 on the PWMIC, using 1.58v and 2.8 on the DRAM( ram is running 1:1 with 3 3 3 8 timings ). This is with the side of the case closed. If I leave the side off then the temps are about 5 deg lower.
  9. I had similar problems where the audio used to work then it stopped working. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling both the Realtek and NVidia drivers ( separately ) and I couldn't get it to work. Then I discovered a dialog to enable the audio device and that fixed the problem. ( decribed below ) Currently I have the Realtek drivers installed. To find the dialog that enables audio, open the Windows device manager ( right click My Computer and click Mange, then Device Manager ). Click Sounds, video and game controllers. Right Click Realtek AC'97 Audio and select Properties. Click the properties tab at the top and then expand the "Audio Devices" item in that dialog box. Click on "Realtek AC'97 Audio" and hit the Properties button at the bottom of the dialog. In that dialog, select "Use audio features on this device". This is the part that fixed my machine. Previously, the item "Do not use audio features on this device" was checked. Hopefully this helps you solve your problem. I tripped over it quite accidently as I was digging through the windows UI looking for the problem.
  10. Thanks for the tip. I just ran into the same problem, and your tip allowed me to fix the problem in no time! Search is a wonderful thing
