  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?
  14. Hello! I've finally received my two G.Skill 1GBLC (Samsung TCCD 431) 512MB modules and installed them. BIOS is the newest official one (I Think 623-3, June 23) I used the following DRAM Configuration (by kakaroto, xtremesystemforums): BIOS Settings 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: 3072 (200MHz 3.9us) 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 (btw, does 255+ means INCREASE, or am I wrong about that one?) but my machine wasn't stable at ANY frequency! Neither @250, neither at 275 and neither at 225. The multiplier for the LDT was 3.0, the CPU was never overclocked. I then tried to increase the voltage for the CPU a bit. (Startup @ 1,425V, VID [email protected],425, special VID contro: AUTO) First question here: why is there a StarUp Value? and why are there TWO VID controls? one to 1.55V and the other to increase this value by a certain percentage? But that didn't help. Because I was too lazy to test each module in Single-module configuration, I immediately tried to set the Clock per Cycle two disabled, i.e. 2T Timing. Now, the PC is also running stable @275Mhz RAM Frequency. My questions here: 1. Is the 2T timing much slower than the 1T Timing? 2. Does that mean (i.e. 1T timing = unstable, 2T = stable) that my processor has a bad memory controller? or must I do something else to ensure that CPU is the problem and not my memory modules? Thanks for help and answers!
  15. hey, you're talking about Infineon -6-A memory chips, these modules do 5-2-2-2 @ 200Mhz ;-) is this BIOS (March 3rd 2005) also installed on new manufactured boards? cause my board is an RMA return of the last week... thanks for your answers! btw, where can I get the 704BTA Bios from?
  16. BIOS Date is 3. October 2005, Timings are the ones from SPD: 2.5-7-3-3-1T All other settings are "optimized defaults" thanks for your answer!
  17. Hello! I've got the following Problem: Two 256-MB Single-Sided Infineon modules do work at their normal frequency (166Mhz), but 4 256MB Single-Sided Infineon modules DON'T work, Windows doesn't load the desktop, and in Windows Safe Mode, I immediately get a bluescreen (for example, Page Fault Error (or something like that) or simply IRQL not less or equal) BTW, two modules do work in both slots, the orage and the yellow ones. What's the problem here? Thanks for help!
  18. sorry - I didn't change my signature yet. I now have G.Skill F1-3200DSU2-1GBLC (2x 512 Samsung TCCD) for these memory modules, is there a different BIOS Version recommended? Which timings should I use at 200Mhz? Thanks for any help!
  19. Hello! I'm very new to my new DFI Board (I will get it soon, as my first board was defective). I've got two questions: 1. What BIOS is recommended for 3200+ Venice E6 with G.Skill F1-3200DSU2-1GBLC (TCCD) 2. What timings should I use at 200Mhz (stable and fast, which will work in any case with my memory modules) Thanks for answers!
  20. Hello! Whick 3200+ Venice CPU is better for overclocking? 0529 BPDW or 0531 APFW? I've got both CPUs, as my neighbour also wants a new machine, but doesn't want to do overclocking, so I want to use the better CPU. Thanks for answers and help!
  21. is it anyway possible to reach the following (STABLE!) settings with these A-DATA Hynix Modules: Memory: 250Mhz (1:1 ratio) CPU: 250*10 (Athlon 64 Venice 3200+ E6 with Zalman 7700AlCu) HTT: 250*4 Thanks for help!
  22. Hello! My two A-DATA RAM modules have the following serial number: 430F3H4TR --> are there Hynix or Samsung Chips on these Modules? (I also own two other A-DATA Vitesta DDR 500, and the serial number starts with "HY", so I guess that these modules have Hynix D5 or D43 on it) Thanks for answers! Cya, Noxman
  23. Hello! I will soon receive my first DFI board, a Lanparty SLI-DR. I want to use my old memory modules, two 512MB A-DATA Vitesta DDR500. The serial number on the heatsink starts with HY, so I think there are Hynix Chips on the modules. Do these modules work good with the SLI-DR? I want to use the following settings with my A64 Venice 3200+: Memory: 250Mhz, CPU: 250Mhz * 10 = 2500Mhz, HTT: 250*4. which timings should I use? I yet don't know anything more that they did run on my ASUS P4P800 Deluxe @250Mhz with 7-4-4-2.5. Any other timings, which the DFI SLI-DR provides to change, are new to me. Thanks for any help, I really need it! (sorry for my bad english, I'm german)
