  1. No worries , this board will be gone by next year.. I'll be upgrading to a quad core intel
  2. wow this forum is dead compared to what it used to be Anyhoo using merlin's latest bios now , its nice to setup
  3. I have the NF4 SLI-DR , i've been getting the HA20X2K.SYS BSOD and sound crackling , a creative labs bod said i need to update my bios :eek: Anyway the date on my board says NF4 SLI-DR V1.0 DATE : 06/23/2005 REV A3
  4. How do i dual core test the new prime 25.5 on my amd 3800+ x2 ? , what should the settings be e.t.c
  5. They don't like alot of things Oh believe me its on its own irq that was something i looked into along time ago even faffing about with pci latency settings makes bugger all difference.. Meh shouldve got an audigy 2
  6. Mine still makes the odd crackle and this is the new drivers on a reinstall of windows
  7. Or the Sli-DR The creative xfi is the worst card ive ever got in terms of crackling , my old soundstorm on the nforce 2 never did it :mad: This is what i posted in another thread i deleted -- Currently have the lanparty sli-dr bios shows date 06/23/2005... Problem is im getting the odd anoying crackle with my XFI soundcard and apparantly the creative devs are spouting crap that we should update our bios's. Though is it worth updating the bios even if everything else works? Overclock is good , its stable , everything works as it should bar the odd crackle from the xfi soundcard and its an old bios.

  9. Ahh now i know what i did wrong i put 800mb in the wrong box , hah it was using like 3gb+ :tooth: Thanks working now :angel:
  10. I cant seem to be able to prime test my core 1 , ive got 2 instances of prime being used shortcut -A0 and -A1 i set affinity 0 and affinity 1 for the correct cores. But looking at task manager its saying 50% , the first window core 0 is being fully used 100% but core 1 only about 5%
  11. Is there a way to get past weak cores bah! :tooth: Oh btw previous board sli-d was the cause of the million errors in memtest with any memory at default speeds and default timings, had someone else here to see for themselves , it also caused the soundcard to scream at me every few days . This Sli-DR is SO damn shweeet though :angel: F1-4000BIU2-2GBHV series by G.Skill passes 9hrs worth of memtest It errors in about 30mins at 2.62 , at 2.65 it errors in about 5mins with prime this is core 1 , core 0 keeps going ... Let me know if i need to do anything else , i think i covered all the angles though
  12. My board was faulty did that ^ , got a dfi sli-dr right upto 287fsb , 237 mem :cool:
  13. Please read the post guys (Dual core installed drivers, dual core hotfix dual core optimizer - Same ) P.s Battlefield 2 is still just as bad in single player , its actually frame skipping... seems to jump forward for some reason
  14. System is alot more stable than it used to be , left the computer on all day yesterday... Didn't get any freeze ups ( games ) and no crashs in firefox. Still getting the odd stutter but its not as bad as it was , so i can live with this :cool: Now i need to start saving up cause im skint with all this spending edit : how much do opterons go for now? dual core upto 3ghz oc will upgrade to one of those next year
  15. Or like me they didnt work in the orange slots cause the board was faulty
  16. The guy came around again today we messed with memory timings solved atleast 60% of the hitching in battlefield 2 but it was very difficult for him to notice it. As im looking for it and know what to look for, in oblivion he could see for himself the frame skipping. --- In oblivion it frame skips as it does in quake 4 and doom 3 , every second frame is a skip i can only partially solve this by. ifpsclamp 60 in oblivion and com precise tic in doom 3,quake 4. Problem is with these commands it makes it incredibly laggy if the frames drop below 40fps
  17. Its not you fault its just my autistic way of explaining things :sad: 1. Basically whatever we tried on my old dfi sli-d it would not let us go over 220mhz on the memory without errors in the orange slots , nor would it allow us to boot even if we loaded optimized defaults. The only way it was going to boot was with the ram in the yellow slots, but whatever was used in the orange totaly unstable thousands of errors and sometimes no boot. This was being tested with my original +3800 dual core cpu. 2. We tried the dfi sli-dr and straight away it would load optimized defaults it has also allowed me to up the fsb to 287 in the orange slots upto 250mhz on the memory , this is with MY cpu. 3. The stuttering remains on the system even after a complete new format, i have just tried his +4800 dual core cpu and the stutter remains.. So i have now put my cpu back in. This is what i have done in replacements thus far Psu was faulty - replaced with OCZ 700 watt Motherboard was faulty - replaced with dfi sli-dr Cpu was fine although we did test another cpu just incase Memory was faulty , got a new rma ballistix this was fine and so is my g.skill I have had this issue for a long time i did try another gfx card - nvidia pcie ( still stuttered and hitched ) so its not the graphics card. Soundcard was removed , still stuttered and hitched It really only leaves now the monitor or monitor cable , if not i am at a total loss Default settings , overclocked settings, underclocked settings - still stuttered,hitched Dual core installed drivers, dual core hotfix dual core optimizer - Same New sata hard drive , no faults - Same issue
  18. It's still hitching in battlefield 2 :mad: :mad: :mad:
  19. Why would it be the cpu? was already confirmed by me and another person on this forum that the other board was faulty.. wouldn't even load default settings in the orange slots, this dfi sli-dr one + SAME cpu works right off the bat. Now running 287FSB , 234MHZ memory , 2.58GHZ in the orange slots The otherboard wouldnt go over 230mhz memory , 240fsb in the orange slots. ( 1 error every 5mins in orange at 220mhz memory ) Temps of 36C in bios , hard load of about 53C in games... volts of 1.53
  20. Nope , im upgrading to opteron next year anyway want 3ghz :cool: ... but atleast ive got a working motherboard p.s the cpu was not related to the memory not working in the orange slots on the other board
  21. madian225 came over to my place today and saw for himself just how faulty it was , would not accept his ram or mine over 220mhz... even worse for atleast 5mins the board wouldnt even boot up after a 10min bios flash. Finally got it booted went into bios and just loaded optimized settings, wouldnt boot beeping at me like buggery :mad: Tried each orange slot no go even memory at auto timings, as soon as i put it in the yellow it booted up , but he could see for himself that something wasnt right. He left me a cpu and dfi sli-dr , i used the board and STRAIGHT away the system accepted the ram and right upto 260mhz in the orange slots and NO memory errors. So it was proven that my board was faulty , i was so chuffed with his board which he wasnt using i bought it off him :cool: Now i gotta test the stuttering out :( , but atleast i can run in the orange slots now
  22. OMG......... Snap! Read my thread lower down bud
  23. Brilliant , this could be the best way to get this sorted.. Thanks alot :cool:
