  1. Thanks for the reply, Guess This 200gb may have to go to the external drive and replaced with something that doesnt bother me everytime I boot :-). Thank you for your reply, I will boot in safe and get an I.d. on this file and get my friend( who is much smarter than me) to give me a direction for this.
  2. Okay, I know it is definately not a serious situation but it is really annoying me. There is actually a little more involved than stated in my topic. I am running a dual boot sys. after much work and tampering. The first issue is I can not install the seconds os with the eide installed. It gives me "problem finding operating system" or something of that nature. So I unplug the eide and leave in the sata drive, installs like a charm. If I leave the hard drive unplugged either O.S. boots through the windows screen with the activity band on the bottom going from left to right. wiithin a matter of 10 seconds. If I plug in the eide, we are talking upwards of a minute to get off of this screen. I really can't figure it out. I have been in the bios and see no reference to 2nd boot drive except the priority of hd boot which is set correctly. So any suggestions would be appreciated. By the way I am not at home so any troubleshooting can not happen until later today. All assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thanks again.
  3. You and I have a very similiar set ups, I would definately do a memtest at stock speeds and report back. Also your dual prime @72 degrees is definately a sign of poor hs placement/ thermal grease, I can dual prime torture test for 8+ hours while never going over 50, please run memtest at 2.0 and report back Hope this helps in your venture, I really like this place and hope I can pass on some assistance As i have recieved much from this community
  4. yes the sataII is out performing the eide but if youll read again I say "i know it isnt truly out performing but there has to be something wrong"with the ratios taken into consideration thanks for the reply still trying to see if the sw drivers should be nstalled or not and if they are or not
  5. So are you saying that my test results between my hardrives are acceptable? I sure hope that is not true, I will be very disappointed... owell Guess its back to the drawing board Any other opinions???
  6. Hello Everyone, I just posted the beginning of this question in the overclocking forum, and feel that I have now been lead here. This is my original post I have got my Opty 165 stable but it seems that there is an issue somewhere. The reason I purchased the dual core is so I am able to multitask but. I feel that my old Barton xp3200 was executing winrar, par and so forth without slowing my response time down on my system. This is, from my understanding, the purpose of a dual core, to be able to do several things at once. I cant even get several instances of winrar going at once without them all coming to a crawl. To give you a little background on my sytem, that are not in my sig, I have a divider 5/6 and timing loosened to 8,3,3,3 which are by default 5, 2, 2.5, 2. Do you guys believe that this is the cause of my woes? I've read that dividers didnt play a major role but... Also please note that I do have an sata2 samsung with ncq so I dont believe that it is my hardrive. Any and all help is appreciated, Thanks in advance Well after taking the advice of enroscado i did some testing and it seems that my eide is out performing my sata II, after doing a test my theoretical for sataII was 300, the burst was 129.5 and the sustained was 59.5, compared to my eide 133 burst of 108.3 sustained 56.7, i know it isnt truly out performing but there has to be something wrong, I have looked around for different drivers and the "tool" to make the sataII enabled but from the looks of it it is already enabled just not performing, please assist me with this matter if at all possible
  7. Thank you for your reply... I think you are on to something, im pretty sure actually I did as suggested and I placed two different rars files on seperate hd's. NOw here is the strange thing, I must be doing something seriously wrong because my 200gb westerndigital out performed my samsung sata2 ncq twofold or maybe even three fold. Do you have any suggestions as to how to remedy this? thanks once again for the assistance

    Dave just a general question, if you will, since this thread has gone to no mans land, Do you think with my memory ocz 1024x2 el I would be able to get a descent O.C. I kNOW you cant tell me for sure because each chip set is different, I just want to make sure I am on the right path with this ram, I know that they are not great overclockers but with the dividers and what have you am I sitting good if I purchase the 170? Thank you for your time and efforts with my noob question
