  1. My HD was OEM, I'll check for the jumper, I didn't go the Seagate website. Thanks, I'll post back if that's not the solution.
  2. I have my new Seagate installed, and in trying to fix a bug with my ATI HDTV Wonder, I looked into the properties for the SATA controller, and it shows SATA Generation 1 instead of Gen 2. Is this a limitation of Windows, or do I have something set wrong in the BIOS?
  3. I've posted something similar to this before, but this is different. This system has always taken its time to boot, but lately after I hit the power switch and it goes through the POST, my system will sit there for up to about 40 seconds before the HD starts loading windows. I've done the usual troubleshooting: emptied out the CD drives, checked the voltages and temps, lowered my overclock, tested my overclock using Prime (dual instances) for over 6 hours at both the old overclock and a reduced clock. All have still showed the same symptoms... What do you think? Bad power regulator maybe? I do have active cooling on the board, as I know it's important with water cooling.
  4. Try a lower CPU multiplier and see if you're stable at that. If so, you've found the max of your CPU. If not, it might be the memory divider or your PSU causing this.
  5. You need to run 2 instances of Prime at the same time to truly determine if your OC is stable. I've had one run fine for hours on end, and i've tried both cores. When I tried 2 instances at the same time, I found out the OC wasn't as stable. I've now reached 2.75GHz which is stable, and kinda leaving it there - just don't have as much time to devote to it as I'd like...
  6. Nearly all the 165's are CCBWE. For the week it's made, it's not a true determining factor in how well it will overclock. Give it a whirl and see how far you get!
  7. By the looks of it, you're going to need a stronger PSU. That's a LOT of stuff you have hooked up to that PSU. I'm also thinking you might have TOO much voltage for that speed. Don't overvolt, as it'll cause instability as well. I've seen that happen too many times. Start over from scratch. A successful overclock takes a lot of time and patience. Trial and error will get you there. If you're topping out around 225MHz, drop your CPU multiplier down to 9X and put it back to stock voltage. Ensure that the HTT and the memory are 100% stable at that speed. Slowly bring it to 250MHz while keeping the CPU at 9X and check for stability again. If you're stable between those frequencies, drop back down to around 200MHz. Slowly bump up your HTT until you lose stability at stock voltage. Once you've found the stock limit (prolly around 2.35 to 2.4GHz), bump up the voltage ONE NOTCH ONLY and try again. 1.425 is a good start.... go in 5MHz increments and check with dual Prime95 before any increase. You'll prolly have to bump to 1.475~1.5 to get a decent bump in frequencies, but only bump in small increments. You'll prolly get around 2.5 with 1.55V, maybe better. Keep in mind that there is a chance your CPU has reached its limit. Not all CPU's will overclock the same! Even with the same stepping, you'll get a wide variance. Don't believe the myth of week/stepping... Just be patient and you'll most likely get further! Good luck!
  8. bump again - added a CPU and changed price
  9. go to www.bleedinedge.com and ask OCZ specifically for the timings on your board.
  10. 2755MHz here and counting on the 165.... yeah, they suck
  11. Tried the hotfix, still get the crashes. How do I manually set the affinity?
  12. Try bumping up the HTT and chipset voltage a notch. It might be your memory causing the issue as well. Try dropping the CPU multiplier another notch, and test again to see if it's something else causing this to ensure it's not your CPU.
  13. That's a nice drop in temps. Suprisingly, MBM reports my temps under full load with my dual core about 38 degrees. I still have the IHS on too!
  14. My temps in everything are fine. As I stated, my video card isn't overclocked. But I don't know about a dual core fix... for applications?
  15. My system is Prime and Memtest stable at 306X9 w/ a 166 mem divider (DDR500). In NFSU2, it gets a little twitchy and I see a little flicker. I don't have the video card overclocked, and I did bump up the HTT and chipset voltage one notch. I'm wondering if it's the game not liking a dual core, as I've heard that issue with programs such as Everquest, or might the PCI Express/board not be stable at those speeds?
