    Photocopier tech specialist/network specialist, Basic IT support, sales support in UK. You name it, they ask me to do it, no-one else stupid enough to put the long hours in or prepared to sit down and learn about IT. I'm a self certified geek, buying bits to rebuild an SGI 320 system, and my garage and roof is full of old servers and pc's. We have PC world over here in the UK, and it's just the same. You probably have a couple of guys who know there stuff and the rest will tell you what you want to hear.

    New Thread Same Ethernet Issue

    I know DNS lookup can cause all sorts of problems, if a website you have been to has changesd and you go back you can get issues with it not loading correctly, or not loading at all.

    Lets play --- Guess that RAM game!!

    Anakins a geek! I don't think they are sdram. I understood that sdram had two cutouts where the pins are. They doo look like EDO ram though, just look at the size of the contacts. In otherwords, useless, unless you have an old MAC, or a P1 system.

    New Thread Same Ethernet Issue

    you could try flushing your dns cache using: Start-run-cmd enter ipconfig /flushdns Are you using a usb modem? I know they can drop the line if you dont use it for even a second or two. Have a look in the connection settings of ie6 for disconnection times etc. P.s. Put together a sig quick, just stating the components you have.

    anyone installed linux on this board ?

    I would presume Suse 9.2 cannot see your chipset, as it is brand new. Try getting hold of the latest verion of Suse, and see what happens. Suse 9.2 is ancient in the world of Linux, and I think that's your problem. Look at Mepis, Suse, Fedora Core, see what they offer.

    We did say it would be loud. At least you didn't go for that thermaltake venus 12 (I think).

    DFI-Street welcomes Mushkin!

    I must say, I love my Mushkin. Very fast, stable and never had any problems in any of the boards I've owned. DDR400 has been running at DDR500 speed, hehe.

  14. My only thought would be the Arctic Cooling Freezer64 pro cooler. I think the retaining mechanism is the same way round on an NF4 as it is the NF3 Ultra-D I have. If you don't mod the 64pro so it sits diferently, the fan will push air up to the psu or down to the back of the graphics card, not towards the rear of the case. See my sig for a pic. As I found out tonight on mine, you can twirt them round so they do fire out the back, and it made a good 5c difference. It's a lot of hassle though, so if I were doing it again, I'd go for a thermalright cooler with an adjustable quiet fan, such as a Zalman ZM-F3

    I thought about putting a portable aircon unit in front of my pc, blowing at it. I even thought of putting my pc in my car, just so I could run the aircon full blast to get over 3Ghz. The thought of all my neighbours looking at me stopped me though.
