  1. Hi.. been having a problem with my system for a long awhile. It hasnt affected anything criticically so I havn't put much effort into solving it. The problem is: I'll turn on the system, after seeing the LanParty splash screen (sometimes i dont even get that far), the system will reset and proceed to boot normally If the system does not do this mysterious reboot, then the memory will show up as 700 or 800mb (out of 2gb).. which is really strange because I have two 1 gb sticks. My voltages are as follows: Vcore + VID = 1.6 (to accomodate stable high clockrate) LDT = 1.26 DRAM = 2.82 3.3 Rail = 3.33 5 Rail = 5.05 12 Rail = 12.34 Battery = 3.02 The rail voltages are adjustable because I have the ocz power stream.. but the voltages seem in the norm. Anyone have any advice? -w
  2. If I lowered my multiplier to 10 would it put less strain on the cpu and therefore require less voltage to run stable? -w
  3. Right now the heatpipes are facing the ram.. Can barely get my pcie video card in the 16x slot, but it blocks the port above it. I'll look into that fan. -w
  4. Is this a good thermal grease product: OCZ Ultra 5+ Silver http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/Sea...83739&CatId=503
  5. It's winter here too (north east of Toronto, Canada) I'll see about getting that thermal grease and re applying it and possibly getting a new fan too. The reason the vcore is so high is because is that is the minimum voltage I need to achieve prime95 stability.. otherwise it crashes on a torture test after 20 mins. -w
  6. I've thought about reseating the heatsink too.. i thought I did fine, used a razor and everything, but I haven't applied too many heatsinks so i may of squished around too much. How much goo is enough? I bought a cheapie led light 92mm fan.. just for looks and because I was broke. Can anyone recommend a better one (quieter the better). Chipset stays at a cozy 45C during the prime95 test. Stock cooling. -w
  7. Hi guys.. I recently built the machine listed in my specs (damn x800 is on RMA). I've been playing around with oc'ing and I think I've hit my max. My VCore is currently at 1.57V Chipset is at 1.66V DRAM is at 2.82V FSB: 246MHz no dividers 3700 has a 11 multiplier so I'm running at 2706MHz I am currently prime95 (12 hr and counting) stable and could push it further but my temps aren't the greatest. Idle sits between 35 and 38 and my load is anywhere from 44 up to 50 C.. then my BIOS gives the CPU fan full load and it stays below or on 50. a) Does this seem high for the heatsink I own (XP90Copper)? B) Should I have the CPU fan go at full throttle at a lower temperature? c) Anyone with the same proc want to give me their voltage settings for a 2.8 GHz oc? Cheers, -w
  8. Well, the powersupply fixed my issue with oc'ing.. wasn't able to achieve any sort of memory overclock despite what settings I used. Now running at a cozy 2.5ghz. Seems my 2 led problem was in fact a video problem.. I'm using a cheapie PCI radeon I have and have had no reboot problems since. Filled out an RMA for my video card.. it was refurb'd from ATI so I guess I got a badbad apple. Appreciate the help. -w
  9. I think I'm going to go for the modstream instead of the powerstream because it looks better. Yeah I know that's vain but this is for my 'show case' (acrylic).. and I don't want to sleeve every powerstream cable. Should this PSU be able to perform fine with my 4 hdd's, 2 optical devices, one pcie ati x800 pro and one pci sata controller card.. as well as give me some room to oc? Basically I need something for the system in my signature, I want to overclock it. -w
  10. Nevermind everyone.. I found a post by an OCZ tech saying they're the same thing and the same timing settings are used. Post is here: http://www.bleedinedge.com/forum/showthread.php?t=17370
  11. AG made a post in the stock speed database with the model below the memory in the thread name: http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=27308 It looks exactly the same except it doesnt have this EVP technology (allows you to up the voltage to ~2.9V within 5% and not void the warranty) and has different heat spreaders (XTC tech)... Can't tell if it's the same otherwise since the heat spreaders are glued on. -w
  12. -AG Could anyone explain this in more detail? What kind of problems (other then the speed decrease 16x to 8x.. or is this the only one?). I moved my Radeon to improve air flow since it inconveinently sits right over top the chipset fan (why was it designed like that?). And it's 1/8th of an inch away from my heat sink.. also the minidrive connector is damn near impossible to plugin or takeout with a video card present. -w
  13. Anyone have thoughts about the compatability of this RAM? http://www.ocztechnology.com/products/memo...4mb_gold_gx_xtc
