  1. I have 2GB of memory (see signature) for a new PC I bought, and when I booted it up the first time (with both sticks) it kept shutting down. After upping the voltage to 2.8V, the problem seems to have gone away. Is it typical to have to up voltage to run 2GB or do I have a flaky MB? This problem occurred befor I did any overclocking.
  2. Yes, DFI LanParty's have a boot problem which appears to be related to USB devices. There are a number of threads on this. I've just come to accept it at this point, because I haven't found a good solution for it and there are no new BIOS releases out yet. My problem is that 75% of the time my computer hangs on boot, but simply hitting the reset button will allow me to succesfully boot. Irritating, but not show-stopping.
  3. I'm using 2.34. I got it off their website after registering.
  4. Here are my ATTO and HDTach results. Any idea why I'm getting peaks in HDTach?
  5. Thanks. Should I make it a dynamic disk or is that only for disks that I stripe through Windows?
  6. I already have a Windows OS drive, and don't plan on changing it for now. I have 3 drives I want to add on in a RAID 0 configuration. I assume I will not need to use any special driver disks, because I can already boot into Windows. Are there any other things I need to do differently? The instructions I've seen posted deal with RAID 0 configuration for a boot drive.
  7. Well, the only problem with trying out all combinations is the time to build the array. This will be a 1.2TB array, and the thought of how long it will take to build and format scares me.
  8. I've read a number of posts about optimimum Stripe and Cluster sizes for RAID 0, but the information wasn't always consistent. I'm putting together a RAID 0 setup with 3 WD400KD drives. Do I have to make the stripe or cluster size divisible by 3 for any reason? I've read in a long thread that you should go for 64KB stripe and 16KB cluster sizes, but I was wondering if it mattered how many drives were involved. Thanks for any insight you can offer.
  9. I ran an image processing program that used both cores for over an hour yesterday, and according to Motherboard Monitor 5, the High CPU Temp was 56C (PWMIC 52C). This seems a little high to me and I'm worried about damaging my CPU. I have a Thermalright SI-120 with a 120mm Panaflo fan. When I'm not doing anything, the CPU Temp hovers around 34C. My case doesn't feel warm at all (I have 2 120mm fans plus the powersupply fan). Any ideas why my CPU seems to run so hot? Do I have to worry? In the past, when loading the CPU for like 15 mins, the highest the temperature has gotten is about 52C.
  10. I downloaded MBM5 and it looks like it's over a year old program and doesn't have my motherboard listed. Is there a way to update it?
  11. I've attached a file that shows the Sensor display of Everest at Half Load (this is just Everest running, which brings both cores to 50%, not sure why) and Full Load (this is with 7-Zip Multi-threaded benchmark running, which brings both cores to 100%). BTW, why does Everest say I have a CPU fan when I don't have one attached to the motherboard?
  12. Does Everest give the "case temperature"? I'm using the Panaflo Ultra-High Output fan: http://www.svc.com/fba12g12u.html
  13. What is a good tool for accurately measuring temperatures and voltages off the motherboard? I'm currently using Everest, but the overclockers.com site appears to use something else I haven't been able to find on the net.
