    DFI-Street welcomes Mushkin!

    Hi everybody, The last time i was here, this was dfi-street. I had a Nforce4 Ultra D, a good graphic card and lots of time to play games. DFI street gave me the resources to overclock, but I was happy with what I got at stock speeds. Now, I have RSI. I still have the Nforce4 Ultra D. But what rocks is that, the Opteron 180 and the Mushkin Redline (model# 991483) are on the way Could anybody help me get the mushkin to work at DDR500? Please advice me some articles, urls...... anything. I'll take on from there and ask you less n00b questions. Me a feeling a bit bad for loosing the exclusivity of the dfi-street thing and the last post in this thread was last year. So, please excuse me if this is the nth time you are seeing such a request. FYI. Trying to get some help from the official mushkin forum too. So, in case you happen to come across such a request there, please dont get offended. Thanks in advance.
  3. Hi guys, another round of upgrades I was wondering whether the below drive is compatible with my mobo. PLEXTOR PX-716SA/SW newegg link It has a SATA interface. I got this doubt since our mobo is not listed in their website and I read elsewhere that this drive has compatibility issues with NF4 SATA Contorller. Could somebody please enlighten me on this? I'm pretty much bent on buying this because I now have two SATA II HDDs and already junked my 40GB IDE HDD. The only thing right now on my comp with a IDE flat cable is my Optical Drive. Pretty pissed with the onboard chipset cooler. No use of a silent 12cm fan or nv silencer since this piece of c**p whines like a mixer grinder and the chipset tems at ~54 degrees C. Can this JingTing be bought in Thailand?? Please give me some info since their site is in :confused: language....

    i took off the cpu heatsink

    Hi 'ToastMaster General', I guess you just did the same with your processor. Give a close look at the processor, you see some suit formation or some liquide gooey stuff around??
  7. How do I get information related to my OCZ Memory module, The make of the chips used, the max I can push it to...(air cooling) etc.. I checked the StockSpeed database and could not find anything related. Could anybody please help. cpuZ says that I have 2 * 512 MB of memory with part number 'OCZ400512ELGE'.
  8. I stand by the nvsilence due to its exhaust the hot air concept. I have just place an order for a 80mm panaflo and a nvsilencer for my 7800gt. Stick the panaflo at the bottom most postion in the front panel of the case, the nvsilencer will get a fresh input of cool air from the front of the case and so will the chipset fan (oh, n the evercool is on the way!! )
  9. I wanted to get the ever cool vc re from taiwan through somebody. But I am unable to point him to a online store or any shop. He did search some places and they said that the ever cool is not available in Taiwan :confused: That fan is manufactured in Taiwan right Can any body help me? I also intend to get the nv Silencer too...

    PATA Drive Raid-0 Setup

    Please check my Sig below. Just updated. Could not be more Sarcastic than this. My apologies in case I offended anybody.
  12. Hi all, I have two Seagate barracudas (both bought at different times and the model numbers are different too). 1> 40GB Barracuda ATA III (IDE) 2> 40GB Barracuda ATA IV (IDE) Right now I am planning to buy one HITACHI T7250K SATA II drive. My question is, Can I have the two IDE drives in a raid array, and the single hitachi drive working like a normal hdd?

    evercool VC RE in Taiwan (Help please)

    I did check all my options and then post a request for info. Go to the link you've pasted and check for Taiwanese distributors. If you can make any meaning out of it, please let me know.
  14. My computer is nearly silent (when compared to the cheap 80mm fans running at full speed on my last setup). Now after getting to this point, the chipset fan is playing the soil sport. Initially the chipset tems were ~43 C and once into windows the whole system would suddenly turn silent (when compared to them spinning at full speed during POST). But now I see that the temps are around 52 C and though the other fans turn down the rpm the chipset fan is screaming at full speed Any Suggestions?

    PATA Drive Raid-0 Setup

    Thanks for your encouragement. As you see, I live in India. I will contact you for the RAID card when I get to the US [Rather than a raid card, I personally would prefer to meet up at a LanParty (CounterStrike?? )] What I need right now is some help or atleast a final nail in the coffin of PATA RAID. Officially PATA RAID is a possibility in nF4 Ultra right? @ExRoadie I tried angry's tutorial to the alphabet (theoritically speaking ) but of no avail. Anybody....... Atleast a official NO and I will just forget PATA RAID on my mobo.

    PATA Drive Raid-0 Setup

    I just went ahead and deleted the RAID array ( after getting in on hitting F10 ) Both the PATAs showed up in XP and I just formatted them and left it that way. Need help to configure them in RAID please?

    PATA Drive Raid-0 Setup

    I configured the two PATA drives in RAID mode in the Bios. Then it upon restarting - it never prompted for the RAID screens ( the one asking for the F10 key). Once inside XP there was a popup asking for drivers for a RAID controller - the 6.7 nvidia drivers never worked (the setup never detected anything from there). It finally went fine after I used the floppy that came along with the DFI. Then after restart it prompted for the RAID setup and I added both the PATAs, Optimal Stripe size, the said YES for the 'Clear Data' prompt and then CNTRL-X. Once inside XP, under MyComputer -> Manage -> DiskManagement, I could not see the PATA drives at all :confused: Now, if I restart, the computer never shuts down completely and I have to press and hold the power key to shut it down. After the restart, the RAID screen pops up flagging an error in RAID array (in red). Can anybody help?

    OCZ Gold 3200 2-2-2-5 [Timings Wrong in Bios]

    Thnx Angry. Now that I changed the timings manually every things going fine. Would start overclocking only after I install my two PATA in RAID 0 and verify that they are working fine.
  20. Just set up my system, finally after three weeks of waiting!! Every thing up an running. I had made my own check list (a lot of customization due to the Thermal Take Big Typhoon ). I had put the CMOS jumper in clear position three days back since I knew that the components would come only yesterday . Did the press Insert Key, then press Del key after speaker beep, then load optimized defaults, save and exit. Now, the OCZ sticks show 2-2-2-5 on the sticker. But after 'loading optimized defaults' in bios, and disabling the DFI logo, I observe that the timings are shown is 2.5 - 3 - 3 - x in the screen (dont remember the x part). Any suggestions? Pls help.

    Best BIOS?

    Hey! How did you figure it out?? :confused: Yes, I'm good to go, but tell me the logic please

    OCZ Gold 3200 2-2-2-5 [Timings Wrong in Bios]

    Yeah! Say that when you come down to India and assemble a DFI for yourself. ** rolling eyes anybody? **

    Best BIOS?

    The bottom left hand corner of my screen shows - "06/23/2005 NF CK804 6A61FD49C 00" , while booting. I could not figure out how to determine my bios build from it. Could you please help.

    stuck on 4 LEDs

    Try out ExRoadie's method of clearing CMOS and pressing INSERT key and starting the comp. Hope it works. Make sure you have all the 4 power inputs fed on the mobo.
