Its about time for me to replace the zalman gm1000 mix I have running in my system so I'm kind of exploring my options right now. It has to be UV reactive but Fluid XP is way to expensive so thats ruled out. Danger den supposedly has some new product called PC Chill coming out that looks like it fits the bill but they havent updated availability on it in 2 months.
what does everyone here use in their rigs?

I've had it all the way up to 1.63v @ 3.0 and dual prime still crashed in minutes. Kind of frustrating because i know there are many other 0617 owners getting better results from this chip.
im hitting 2.9 @ 1.47v with my o617. doesnt want to go much higher than that no matter what I do though

Just make sure you have the safe shutdown temperature in your bios on. it usually defaults to 60c. I like to take off both side panels when I prime overnight and have a big fan blowing directly on the mobo which helps greatly. make sure you read the faqs next time too; these questions get asked endlessly
What does it mean when you can dual prime 16+ hrs without errors (small fft's) but 1 core fails within 45 minutes when you do a custom blend (850mb memory tested on each core) am I stable or not...

1.7vcore?? your a brave man. Wont take long for that to go up in smoke
sweet, I was always wondering the answer to that one as well

704-2bta seems to be favored here, replace that PSU stat btw if you want to achieve anything with your OC

uhh guys I dont need to know if there is air in the system or how to purge it; I need help with why the computer wont post!
Well I just powered on this morning, at first there was no boot, then I resetted a few times and it posted. Same problem with windows not loading, ok I think its corrupted and I must re-install. Setup stalls out at "Setup is loading Windows" hmmm thats never happened before. While Im trying to figure that one out the computer turns off and shuts itself off out of the blue. It will power back on but with 4 leds. I noticed before it did that the 12v rail in the bios was reading real low like 11.88v. Im thinking the PSU has taken a crap? im lost here
having a problem similar to this guy :http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=64821
did some light maintenance on the WC, cut a new length of hose and attached (old one was a tad too short and nearly falling off). Motherboard was not removed, just the video card to get at the tubing more easily. Stitched it back up and power on, post took a lot longer than usual, but a black screen when booting into windows. hmmmm. reset, and now no post. Initially it will halt on 3 leds, I reset and then it halts on 2 leds. thats the way it sits now.
Im thinking there is a small spill somewhere I cant see that it causing the problem? Im doing an overnight cmos clear (give it some time to dry also) and hoping for the best in the morning. I tried re-seating the video card to no avail and it looks pretty air tight as far as leaks go. any ideas???

I just did a fresh install of windows and didnt bother installing the dual core driver or hotfix. Guess what? the system is still perfectly stable and games run just fine
Posted September 16, 2006
just wondering what everyones using lately, I used to have Giant antispyware but just reformatted and want to try something new.
Posted September 15, 2006
I just started to have this exact same problem as well. 3dmark05 runs just fine but 06 always
freezes the display after a few minutes. only seems to happen when I oc the video card though
Posted September 13, 2006
my CCBBE 0617 also does 2.7 stock vcore. it tops out somewhere around 2.930ghz at 1.5v, although I have a feeling my PSU is holding me back from higher clocks.

I have the same problems with CCC, no matter what driver I try. I will try what Mack27 suggested. My first thought was that it meight have something to do with my nlite version of XP. Can anyone tell me how to install the Omega drivers? I was never able to get them installed -> unknown devices, driver not found...Thanks!
Im using an nlite version of XP also; I think something with the refresh rates are fudged because every game does this freezing thing.

my ccc keeps crashing for some odd reason, it will show the splash screen and then briefly show the control panel and then nothing. I have .net 2.0 installed and it did work briefly when I first installed it but something else must be conflicting with it

It seems as though my max stable oc is [email protected] At 2.95 and 1.58vcore, core 2 fails at around 7.5hrs or so. at 3.0ghz, core 2 fails in seconds no matter what vcore is applied. this guy here http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showpost.p...4&postcount=250
has the same board, bios, stepping and ram as me and is 3.0 stable at 1.5v. Now I know the same hardware doesnt neccsarily guarantee the same OC as the next guy but one has to reason I should be close no? Could this possibly be PSU related? MBM reads the 12v rail at around 11.88 or so when priming. I know this setup has 3.0 in it somewhere:confused:
Posted September 2, 2006
probably needs a little more than 1.4v
Posted August 31, 2006
you dont want to go higher than 50c full load. the lower the better
