  1. --> so my drivers installed faulty? As I don't have these PCI-Express devices...
  2. Hello! I've just set up my system with Windows XP SP2 32bit and installed the nforce4 drivers version 6.70 AMD Edition. My device manager, system devices (I hope this is the correct term for this in english as I am using a german Windows XP) looks like this: Is this normal? I expected that there are more "nvidia"-devices... Thanks for answers and help!
  3. Hello! With 100% CPU Usage, MBM5 tells me that the nf4 chipset temperature is around 47-49 °C. Are these "normal" values? Or is my chipset too hot? btw, when I built in my VGA Card, I remarked that I can easily "switch" the Chipset cooler to one direction, it is NOT really fastened... is that also "normal"? Thanks a lot!
  4. Hello! I just wanted to do the quick memory test in RMMA 3.6, and I got a Bluescreen with the 3rd test ( I think this is the "maximum bandwith" test). My machine was Prime95 stable for 18,5h, then I stopped the execution of Prime95. So what does that mean? I also tried a RAM divider, same result as above. Settings: CPU: 250*10, LDT ratio 4.0, RAM 250Mhz, 2.5-3-3-6 Is it possible that my memory is defective? thanks for help!
  5. please look at the attached screenshot, especially at the Speedfan Voltages for -12V and -5V: Is this normal? btw, Speedfan tells me that my oced processor (Venice at 2500Mhz, ~1,5V) is only around 38°C when testing with prime95... Is this temperature which speedfan tells me correct? btw2, in the background, you can see Prime95 (I halted the execution after 18h). Can I say that this system is stable? Or do I need running Prime95 for about 24h? btw3: I raised the Voltages for the LDT and Chipset, each 0,10V up. Does that do any harm to my Motherboard? Thanks for answers!
  6. thanks for the answers! What are the ic's ? The RAM chips?! or do you mean the serial numbers? btw, today I exchanged the CPU, now I am stable (for 6 hours now, Prime95 still running) at my desired settings: CPU: 10*250 RAM: 250Mhz 2.5-3-3-6, little looser timings now, for example Trrd=2 and Max Async Delay=8ns. Idle Cycle Limit is 256, is that ok? do you recommend any changes? btw, if it is really stable for about 20h in Prime95, I'm going to try CPU= 10*260, RAM 260 with the same settings and Vcore around 1,51V. EDIT: I also raised the Voltages for LDT to 1.30V and for the Chipset to 1.60, i.e. each 0.10V up. Is it possible that these voltages may harm the Mainboard?
  7. thanks for the answer. How can I see if the modules are related to each other? I have ones with no heatspreader... I've the BIOS settings as follows: 275Mhz RAM frequency, 1:1 divider CPU ratio: 8.0 LDT ratio: 3.0 CPU Vcore: 1,425V DDR Voltage: 2,70V memory settings as follows: Vddr: 2.7v Tcl: 2.5 Trcd: 3 Tras: 6 Trp: 3 Trc: 9 Trfc: 12 Trrd: 2 Twr: 2 Twrt: 2 Trwt: 2 Tref: 4708 Twcl: 1 Bank int.: Enable Skew control: 255 + Drive strength: 7 Data strength: 2 Max. Async: 7ns Read Preamble: 5ns Idle Cycle: AUTO Dyn. Counter: Enable R/W Bypass: 16x Bypass Max: 7x 32Bit Gran.: Disable Then I tried each module in the above orange slot, if it is stable at these settings. Two modules of the two kits (one from each kit) were REALLY unstable at these settings, they didn't pass Prime95 for 10 minutes. The other two modules passed prime95 for more than 5 hours, and then I got the first error. --> so my conclusion was that these two modules perform better for overclocking than the other two. Or is there anything wrong with my conclusion?
  8. lol - I simply wanted to compare several BIOS settings... not measure real world performance
  9. Hi! I recently bought TWO 1 Gigabyte G.Skill Ram module kits ( 1GBLC, TCCD 431) now I tested each module in single channel mode (bank 3 or 4 I think, an orange one at the SLI-DR) to find out which two modules perform the best. Is this the right way? Or are the two modules of a memory module kit "related" to each other to perform best? Thanks for answers!
  10. Hi! I did read the ocing guides for A64, but I couldn't get the answer to this question: Why is the Memory Bandwith lower if the cpu multiplier is lower? for example - at 10 x 250 I get about 6800 in SiSoft Sandra, and with 6x 250 I only get around 5800... thanks for answers! btw, for testing RAM modules in single mode, does the CPU frequency matter? or am I able to set the CPU Multiplier to 7x for 275Mhz RAM frequency? does that affect testing the stability of my RAM modules?
  11. thanks for help I didn't remark any changes in speed/bandwith with "fastest" or "fast" in comparison to "normal" --> I'm going to user normal all the time
  12. Hello! What does the "DRAM Respone Time" option in the DRAM config menu influence? Values are Normal, Fast and Fastest... Thanks for help!
  13. I finally achieved the following stable settings: BIOS: 623-3 RAM: 275Mhz LDT Ratio: 3.0 CPU Ratio: 9.0 RAM Timings: Vddr: 2.7v Tcl: 2.5 Trcd: 3 Tras: 6 Trp: 3 Trc: 9 Trfc: 12 Trrd: 2 Twr: 2 Twrt: 2 Trwt: 2 Tref: 4708 Twcl: 1 Bank int.: Enable Skew control: 255 Increase Drive strength: 7 Data strength: 2 Max. Async: 7ns Read Preamble: 5ns Idle Cycle: AUTO Dyn. Counter: Enable R/W Bypass: 16x Bypass Max: 7x 32Bit Gran.: Disable But in Sisoft Sandra, I cannot achieve the Memory Bandwith which was achieved by kakaroto (link: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=57317) I get something about 6900 in both cases, not 7200... Is that because I've got a SLI-DR and not an ULTRA-D? Or because of the BIOS?
