  1. Running 1280x960 85Hz on a old Dell CRT 19".. it does do up to 1600x1200 70Hz but the flickering is hurting my eyes LOL
  2. Happy_Games often writes what I think But nevertheless he is right... if everyone could write anything they want this forum could build up quite fast with rubbish.. Internet is wonderful for connecting people, put sometime you just gotta pull the plug if you know what I mean
  3. Tier_II: Not bad, not bad at all I see that $995.00 can give you quite a good performance in RAID-5.
  4. Aeka you give out good tips, but for the sake of sanity, you should say which file to edit, is this a INF file you should edit? If so, which one? Is it a .REG file you should edit? If so which one? Or create a new one? Im sure clever people can figure this one out, but seeing you already completed these steps it would be easier for others to follow if you give a example create nvfix.inf put this in it: AddReg = nVATA_Tweaks [nVATA_Tweaks] ;HKR.. etc etc..
  5. I don't have anything creative to suggest, rather than a product from Creative hehe =) Creative Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS $64.99 or something cheap like this one Creative Sound Blaster SB0570 Audigy SE $27.99
  6. You make it sound that there is no difference.
  7. do you mean "2 raptors in RAID0 isn't much faster than 2 standard satas in RAID-0" ? or that 2 Raptors in RAID-0 isn't faster than any one sata drive ? If the latter, the statement is faulty
  8. If I understand you correctly, you are saying to him to delete the data on the harddrive that survived? To me, it doesn't sound like this is what he wanted to do
  9. jimval: you sticks are 512mb, his sticks are 1024mb larger capacity memory generally overclock worse and have higher timings.
  10. Oh you did buy the raid drives edition, with the Time-Limited Error Recovery (TLER). How do they work for you in the nF4 controller? I was told these a specifically for a hardware controller that does it's own error checking so the drives own firmware doesn't interfere with the whole raid arrays rythm. The speed looks good. With the default settings this array would be 64kb stripe and 4kb cluster, right? Command Queing, Read Cache and Write Cache, disabled or enabled? all default?
  11. Mops if I were you I would sell them right away and buy something else. If you're a strong faith person who have great trust in the company Crucial, well, keep testing every replacement they send you. This thread is up to 68 pages now... so it gotta count for something.
  12. I like mine with Command Queuing disabled and Read Cache enabled. That's what gives me the best real life performance, even if benchmarks with HD Tach show decrease in burst MB/s with Read Cache enabled. I'm thinking the burst speed is effected "negativly" cause it has to go through the cache before being delivered to the program, but instead the speed from the cache to the program should be greater (in real life performance). But of course there is a overhead so the performance may differ depending on the task... Don't know how HD Tach does it's calculation *shrug*
  13. If they haven't got a clue what the problem is, and if they haven't fixed it, it can explain why they don't want to ship out replacements right away. But then again it could be that they don't have enough sticks to send out. Why they have sticks to send if you call and push them might aswell be cause they feel forced to send them out before really knowing if they have resolved the problem. You don't have to listen to me but I just write my thoughts here...
  14. Yep I saw that early on... but they aren't matched pair 4x1GB Is it the same revision on both pairs? hmm Hope it works now
  15. Does it work at DDR 333 ? (166mhz x 2) You should try it, select the 5:6 divider under memory settings. Remember you are not guaranteed that just because you have 4 sticks of memory they will all work together. As singles all sticks should work, as duals yes most will work but as always a "matched pair" that has been tested together in dual channel is prefered. But to be running 4 sticks, maybe you need the same brand, model and revision of memory... Either way you are not guaranteed that a "matching pair" memory will work at that speed if you are running 4 sticks, all that is guaranteed is that speed with 2 sticks.
  16. Just received my 2x1GB Corsair XMS PC4000 set now on friday. (TWINX2048-4000PRO) They seem allright. They do 270MHz in the Orange slots 3.0-4-4-10 (1T) with 8ns async and 6.5ns preamble time, but it's almost impossible to get mine to work above that speed. Even by going to 3.0-5-5-14 (2T) and without Bank Interleave etc.. the last part of stick #2 doesn't make it. (Errors in MemTest #5 above 1970mb with anything more than 270MHz) Not as good as the Ballistix but if they last for a couple of years atleast that is what matters for me at this point =)
  17. The first post I can find about problems, from date 11-08-2005 Today's date 06-29-2006. Didn't Crucial have a guy here at the forum at one time? hmm Maybe he forgot to tell anyone at Crucial about the problems... *does the head in the sand routine* Yes I forget quite easily the Ballistix I had was nice at 286MHz 3.0-4-4-10 (1T) when it didn't last more than 30 days. Then I get a second pair that last 100 days on a lower speed. That's my point of view. I am a guinea pig for Crucial. What should I do? Take yet another pair and test it for them for a month or two, then send it back to them? I have better things to do with my time. If they want me to test anything they can hire me then I can do that work for them. I don't belive they don't know what the problem is. They haven't correctly handled it that is what I am saying. Sure I can cut them some slack. If they make a announcement saying they messed up, or if they send me a refund or whatever. Point is, Crucial has lost me as a customer for life. And my recommendations to everyone I meet is not to buy Crucial stuff. That's it.
  18. Now I can see them =) At 06-23-2006, 06:56 AM (GMT+2) they were not accesseble. (Altough putfile.com was up..) Those benchmarks look OK. Is this with read and write cache enabled / CQ enabled ?
  19. yes =) there are just a red X and no benchmark data =)
  20. they just be scaring you =) nah they are actually true. If you have 2 drives, one predestined to fail after 1000 hours, the other one predestined to fail after 200 000 hours, then you raid array will fail in 1000 hours, cause that is the time it takes for 1 drive to fail (assuming you are using RAID-0) That is the price you pay for using RAID-0, but the performance is great so if you can take the chance of loosing a bit of data (if you encounter a harddrive failure) go for it. I personally take backups of the important stuff (emails, pictures) to a IDE disk so no problemo for me if the array goes down.
  21. http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=35799 http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=35579 After you followed soundx98's instructions on how to install MBM and the data file, you can adjust it so it is showing the voltages more correctly I added these values into the Motherboard MonitorDataVoltage custom.ini: [Custom] V1=$20*0.01655 //V CPU V2=$21*0.01646 //V LDT V6=$25*0.0163 //V NB V7=$26*0.016 //V DDR Note: not verified with a multimeter but I think it shows voltage fairly correct
  22. I have a Antec PSU and, well it works. But I don't recommend them if you are going to power alot of devices or if you're gonna overclock. Don't know how well mine copes with SLI, it's better I not try so I won't be dissapointed =)
  23. i_wheeldon: I don't know what this 2nd set maxed out on the Orange slots, but it was 265.5MHz on the Yellow ones. (Probably could have run 268-269-ish or something in the Yello but I always back up a few MHz to have a safety zone) Yeah the Orange slots are hard if you have the XP-120 But ofcourse not if you take the mobo out and put the memory in before the XP-120 (as one should), but everything was in place already after the 1st RMA so that's why it had to go into the Yellow ones. After going from 265.5Mhz (3.0-3-3-8 1T) 2.7v, to 265.5Mhz with 2.9v, then down to 250Mhz 2.9v, then 230MHz 2.9v, 200Mhz 2.9v and then finally fairly stable for a good 10+ days on 144Mhz 2.9v. Bad memory can causes file corruption, and I did get a couple of corrupted files and indexes, but everything that was bad I could repair when I backed the memory setting up and made sure it was stable for the time being, then running chkdsk. If you hear that clicking sound (2 minutes worth) it could be that either you harddrive is failing, your PSU isnĀ“t supplying enough stable current or just bad memory caused massive corruption in the file system. If you have bad/defective memory you should not run Windows with it, and force anything. With the magic inside Windows all that is needed is a corruption of the right part of the Windows registry or other suitable system file that can not be corrected and you will end up with having to re-install Windows all-together. Might be possible to do a repair install but I never trust Microsoft to correct Microsoft error. Also note, that defective electronical components can "work" again after being left to rest for many days or weeks, but if you use them 24/7 again they will begin to show their defects in a little while.
  24. new computer or old? has it worked before? please clarify
