  1. I've also been having some issues with this! Trying to revive my old 4400+ setup and pushing it at leas up to 2.8 ghz safely. Instead of running a Zalman CNPS9500LED on the 4400+ now, I'm running a Tuniq Tower 120 w/ AS5. Running the same ram as you and having some issues.. I used to own a pair of EB Platinum's from OCZ, but those are long and gone! Let me know how it goes mate! Would love to get this up for a home server! =)
  2. I've been meaning to try this out, but was wondernig if anybody with persoal experience might give their insight. I'm planning on trying to run Raid-5 and was wondering if the onboard controller is even worth it to try running this on. If anybody can give their suggestions, or have personally used it, I'd love to hear their thoughts. I'd be running with a couple of WD 250GB 16MB SATA's. Regards, Danny
  3. Sounds like you might have an issue with your PSU. I'd also check your connections. I know these sound like common resolves, but it's worth a look to potentially fix hours of frustration.
  4. I haven't been here for a while, but it's been a good while since I've owned my lovely system (and I'm still loving it)! I am still runing an X2 4400.. But since I haven't been in the game lately, I was just wondering if there has been any new BIOS coming in that have improved overclocking potential since December 2005? Any help is greatly appreciated.. Looking forward to tweaking my system once again.. Still running the 704 BIOS fyi. Cheers
  5. Howdy! I just recently switched my ISP to Rogers Cable (bad mistake), and I was wondering if there was a method I can use both connections at the same time, one running on each LAN, the Marvell and the Nvidia one? Being that I still have my former ISP active (Bell Sympatico) for about another 25 days, it'd be a good opportunity to get my some hardcore leeching and seeding done. If not, is there any known method for using both connections on a single comp at the same time? Regards
  6. Sorry if this has already been answered.. I did a good search and couldn't find much of significance.. I've run my computer stable for quite sometime, but it wasn't until I was finetuning my system and took out the side cover of my Wave Master, and noticed that on the bottom left, it boots up with a Red led initially.. Is this completely normal? Something tells me it's a bad sign, but the computer's been working great for quite some time.. Any ideas or answers highly appreciated. If it helps, my drives are SATA, and only have 2 burners installed on seperate IDE channels.
  7. No matter how I shift around the S-ATA Cables to my HD's, I am still getting this problem. The nForce4 Serial ATA Controller is sharing the same IRQ as the NVIDIA Network Bus Enumerator.. and there's no workaround to change this. Is there any method that anybody has tried? It seems I am not the only one suffering from this problem, and the forum doesn't have much resolutions. The board I am using is the SLI-DR.
  8. I wouldn't know exactly the cause Jesse. If that's the case, than it could simply be a software issue. Hot fixes, Service Packs change a lot of settings, and in the case of SP2, totally limits your TCP Connections, etc. Have you ever tried on an install on another hard disk and checking if you can download fine by those means? Also, the modem unlocking can be found by a Google of Yahoo search pretty much..
  9. Not really sure if you are aware of this, but do you know that you can "unlock" your modems as well? You'd probably want it to act in Bridge mode, and disable any type of firewall, etc. on it. Another issue usually lies in Windows XP SP2.. This is a very common issue.
  10. Alright.. I know Windows XP only recognized up to 2gb's of ram.. i already got an eb platinum set running at 260 1:1 at 3-3-7-3 atm.. my question was.. if i had purchased another set of eb platinum's.. would i be able to run at 1t with them as well.. and.. what would happen with dual channel? and also.. would games such as WoW or Guild Wars see any performance increases likely.. or.. how about.. Fear? pondering whether it's worth it or not.. or just pop my money into my xbox 360 tomorrow!
  11. the second pci-e slot is configured at 2x by default unless you move the jumpers into sli mode which splits both slots into 8x.
  12. If this helps, I get 8700 to 8800's on my evga 7800gtx ko edition in 3dmark05 running on the second pci-e @8x bandwidth.
  13. Jesse.. Before any claims are made about issues with the board itself, it should be noted that under the circumstances, it definitely seems to be a software/os side issue. Many (and i mean MANY) experience the same type of issues with Bit Torrent (and specifically, BitComet). The official site for BitComet has a forum link in which you can see some very useful information as to settings, etc.
  14. You're definitely experiencing something unusual. With my EVGA 7800GTX KO Edition, I can do 8700 in 3DMark05.. Not sure what else to say, but more or less, you should be getting within a few hundred with a standard 7800GTX.. Hope the others helped with the SB issues.. Haven't had any experience with anything like it yet.
  15. The only difference I think is the FrontX panel they supply with the SLI-R and that SLI-D doesn't have UV Cables (but not completely sure about the lateral).
  16. I definitely wouldn't call it a 50/50 wait.. I've built 3 rigs with a 4400+ that has run them at 1:1 at 260mhz 3-3-7-2 stable on Prime95.. Could do 3-3-7-3 at 270mhz as well (just gotta solve my ambient temps!).
  17. Sounds like your videocard might be crapping out on you.. Ironic though, as videocards shoudl be able to sustain that heat. have you tried doing 3dmark05 and real world tests? check your ram configurations in your bios.
  18. I have these sticks currently, and on my X2 4400+ I can run 1:1 at 270 mhz 3-3-7-3 stable! Hope this helps with your purchasing decisions! Oh.. and asides from that.. they sure look nice on my SLI-DR board with my Zalman 9600CNPS LED HSF..
  19. jesse, most of your symptoms sound like common bit torrent issues. the router jamming is a very common issue with bit torrent, and other file sharing applications. way back than, my router had no issues either (referring to my version 3.0 befsr41), however, it all the sudden gave me issues. i took me a while to figure it out until finally gave up on opted to purchase a new one.. in which i no longer disconnect as often.. having to reset the modem and router is also a common system of a hardware issue (referring to modem and router issues). if you are on sp2 as well.. i'd check out the website link i provided below. windows sp2 really limits your tcp connections.. apparently this was done for 'security' issues, but regardless, even if it is, we do know it hinders peformance with bt, etc., which is why it's good to have an application to manually adjust open tcp connections such as bitcomet.
  20. Hope this could be of help Jesse.. This type of connection issue with BT programs and others alike are common syptoms of either a router or modem issue. Disconnecting of the modem as you stated in your other reply is a common problem of a problematic router as well. I used to personally own a Linksys BEFSR41 version 3.0 and had the same issues as you. It is not your Raid array setup. It is your router. I further upgraded onto the BEFSR41 version 4.0 and upgraded to the newest firmwire and bam! - no problems! However, something else that might be worthy note to you.. This is only regarded for Windows XP SP2 users, is that your half open tcp connections, instead of being set at 50, is set to 10 for SP2. Therefore, such programs such as BitComet could be using too much bandwidth to let in/out data. You can check this out at Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Event Viewer > System and than sort columns by 'Event'. If you've noticed any 4226 errors, it means you are suffering from this issue. To remedy this, just go into BitComet and change your settings for half open tcp connections to a lower number, or you can also visit http://www.lvllord.de/ for a link to a patch that modifies your tcpip.sys file from 10 to 50 half open tcp connections for you. You can even set it to a 100 if you desire, for those people who mouth watering drooling connections! Hope it helps!
  21. Just wondering, because the uninstall seemed to not work, and I'm looking to reinstall.. Would formatting, or clearing the CMOS do the trick? Which would u recommend? I've been looking for days for an answer. Upon receiving my DFI board, I wasn't aware of the issues with the NAM and installed it.. Since than, I've had huge problems, as all my ports, even general use ports are pretty much all blocked..
