  1. I still need an answer to this. I have a Digital Coaxial audio cable which SHOULD be the same as SPDIF. Also, to which port do I connect the cable? There are two of them, one is Yellow and the other is red. I'm trying to get sound OUT of the pc and INTO the audio receiver. And finally, what settings do I need to modify so that the sound will go through? What if I want to listen to regular sound files with a software player (like itunes)? and what if I want to watch a DVD or other movie with AC3 surround audio? Please help me out here, I got nowhere else to go!
  2. I'd like to connect my soundcard's S/PDIF Output to my Audio Receiver's Digital Coaxial Input. Apparently, S/PDIF and Coaxial Digital are not the same thing. My Digital Coax cable doesn't seem to quite fit into my S/PDIF output. What kind of adapter do I need to make this work? PS: I'm , of course, using the motherboard's S/PDIF output (I don't have a dedicated soundcard or anything. Haven't bought one in 6+ years). EDIT: I still need an answer to this.

  3. Just wanted to let you know that the light blinking is the standby power led. I still need help figuring this out.
  4. As I said, only one light (the orange one) is flashing. he diagnostic thread does not mention flashing at all. Page 56 iof the (11Mb pdf manual) features the COM port near which the orange blinking light is located but does not otherwise mention it. Maybe you got the page wrong?
  5. Yesterday, I tried to turn on the computer and nothing happened, I looked at the board and there was an orange light blinking by the com port (right next to the last PCI slot). After a few minutes, the light became solid and when I hit the power button, the computer turned on. Later on, I turned it off and the same happened again with the same solution. This morning, however, the orange light just won't stop blinking. I don't know what to do. The manual does NOT list error codes so I have no idea what it means. EDIT: The light blinking is the standby power led.
  6. I've primed the memory (400 Mb for each instance) for an hour without errors at 260Mhz and CPU at 1561Mhz (6x multiplier). I hope this helps...
  7. I tried to boot into windows with ram set at 270Mhz and it didn't work I then tried to boot with ram set at 260Mhz and it worked.
  8. Just run it normally. OCCT takes care of using both cores. You do NOT want to test each core separately. This generates less heat and is useless to you since you can't overclock them separately anyways. If you're still confused, don't use OCCT, just run two instances of Prime95 and be done with it. It really doesn't matter.
  9. Ok, so I 1) DIsabled CPU Thermal Throttling 2) Set MAL/Read to 8/5.5 3) Disabled CPC 4) Disabled Dram Bank Interleave. 1-Rebooted the PC, Windows wouldn't finish booting. 2-Reverted to my old settings (except for the CPU thermal Throttling) 3-Windows still wouldn't finish booting 4-Lowered my Ram Multiplier to 2:3 5-Windows STILL wouldn't finish booting 6-Lowered my Ram Multiplier to 3:5 7-Windows finally booted So my ram is currently at 171 Mhz (and I'm not even sure this is stable yet, I might have to lower it further later on). I must conclude that the settings I changed were not responsible for my problem. What ought I to do now?
  10. I'm going to follow 1) and 2) . I have A64 Tweaker and I can write the settings down but I don't understand this part: Then go to your desired overclock settings without the divider and compare A64 readings. Adjust in BIOS accordingly. Thanks. I will do that and report back.
  11. I followed the overclocking guide to establish the max o/c values for my CPU and my RAM. CPU: 2565 Mhz passed 8 hours Prime95 (real max value between this and 2700Mhz) RAM: 270 Mhz passed 8 hours Memtest86 Now, I obtained the CPU value by using a 1:2 divider on the RAM and I obtained the RAM value by using a 6.0X multiplier on the cpu (As the guide suggests) My problem is that when I bumped the CPU back to 2565Mhz and tried to get the RAM up to at least 250Mhz , it wouldn't work. Depending on the value, the computer would freeze at any given point between the time I hit the power button and the time the windows desktop is supposed to show up. While keeping the CPU at 285 x 9.0X , the max divider I can use on my ram so that I can boot up windows is 7:10 which gives me (.7 x 285 = 200Mhz). As you will understand, I'm not exactly happy with having to run my RAM underclocked by 20%. There has got to be something I'm doing wrong here. And because a picture is worth a thousand words, here are pictures of my Bios settings:
  12. Too many factors here. First, you must follow the overclocking guide and find out what the max overclocks of your CPU and RAM are separately. Once you've done this, post the results.
  13. So, what do you suggest fellow Fortron owner?
