    Which BIOS for 4 x 512MB?

    So after the new BIOS flashed, do a clear CMOS, enter the BIOS, load optimized defaults, exit and put the 4 sticks.... see if that helps
  2. Did you plug all the FOUR power conectors to the board? Lanpartys require all of those connected for stable operations....plus...if you just got this board I'd stick with an OFFICIAL BIOS instead of a BETA......

    Which BIOS for 4 x 512MB?

    How about you tell us which BIOS are you using now when this happens....? And also if the 4 sticks are same brand revision and all that good stuff, otherwise it's difficult to try and help you... cheers

    FSB Limit

    This is a weird issue...and with all weird issues a different BIOS might be the answer for you...

    Sound problems

    Which driver you have installed now, realtek or nvidia?
  6. Did you plug all FOUR power plugs into the board??

    Which BIOS for 4 x 512MB?

    The latest official is always a good idea...but I'd try leaving only two, in the genie bios changing the setting called "Command per clock" to disable since it's required for 4 sticks of ram....then saving it and put the other two sticks....

    Ultra 20 pin power supply

    I had this PSU for a long time and used it with my Nf4 Lanparty and it never caused me any problems....but then again I chose to follow this forums requirements and sold it to get an OCZ Powestream....I wanted to be future proof and you never know...I might end end up having problems in the long run, these guys here have more experience than I and I took their word for it and changed it....you should do it too....
  9. Hey overclockers out there I'm having a weird "issue" with prime 95, right now my system is running as it says my sig and I ran prime95 on both cores to make sure it was stable...trouble is when I did it back then it completed the test for 8 hours without any hiccups. The trouble is I was running the "In Place large FTTs Test" and it wasn't until recently I read somewhere here at the forum that the right way to test the system is using a "custom" method in which you select the amount of memory you want to allocate to the test. I allocate 900mb for each core since this leaves me with 200mb for the system. And after running this test one of the cores fails after 3:45 Hours whereas the In place large FTTs run fine for 8 !! Anybody can tell me what's wrong?? or how can I correct this?
  10. I maybe wrong but it seems the difference between the standard true control and true control 2 is the fact the the former is not a ATX 2.0 compatible....

    Sound problems

    I can tell you from experience that the sound works very differently when you install the Nvidia Drivers and the Realtek ones....I have never had problems with either, but I noticed that games benefit a lot more with the Nvidia drivers, apparently EAX is better with the nvidia ones...and music and general use sound better with the realtek, but in your case I'd try and install a different driver.... Ps:If you decide to install the nvidia driver, get the one from the DFI website....for some weird reason when I download and install the latest one from the nvidia website at the installation process it doesn't prompt to install neither the sound drivers nor the network ones....(in case you're running internet off of the Vitesse Gigabit port rather than the marvell one)

    In Place large FTTs vs Custom

    But so far I haven't had a conclusive answer....I mean it appears as though In place large FTT's only the CPU is tested...and in my case it's 8 hours stable.... When I use "CUSTOM" one of the core fails...."custom" it seems RAM is tested a lot, since you have to specify the amount of memory you wanna test.... so if large FTT's (only CPU) primes fine, custom( CPU and RAM) fails....why do I have to increase Vcore ??????

    In Place large FTTs vs Custom

    That's just it...running the "maximum heat/power consumption" that seems to stress only the CPU with 1.4 vcore I'm stable for 8 hours....running the custom one that also stresses memory(judging by the fact you are specifying the amount of memory tested) with 1.425 volts one of the cores craps out at 4 hours....that's the reason I'm amazed....

    In Place large FTTs vs Custom

    According to what I saw in a guide here somewhere the rule is to leave 200mb for the system no matter what amout of ram you have
  15. I never installed the stock HSF myself but I imagine it would be somewhere around 35C idle and 48C load....
  16. Your PSU doesn't meet the minimum requierement of 480w to run these boards....
  17. What the heck is VIN7 and VIN8 ?? I have the same board as you except for the RAID controller and I never saw these settings in smart gardian.... in fact I never saw ANY of the settings you mentioned....I suggest you reinstall smart gardian....
  18. Aspire apparently is in the "black list" of PSU's to avoid....so I'd recommend you sell it and buy something recommend it...I know it's a pain, but these guys here seem to know what they are talking about when they blacklist a PSU.... So if you decide to keep it and something goes wrong the answer you're most likely gonna get is "Your PSU is in the list of PSU's to avoid, that's the cause of your mobo's death" .... You can do what you want, but trust me, there's always somebody looking for a PSU....you can easily sell yours and get a decent one Cheers

    GRRRRRR 4 LED's of hell

    Good Call acegoober....Didn't notice he was using a 430w PSU let alone a Thermaltake....those PSU's are know to be underpowered...

    DFI 875P-T and Intel Pentium D

    Make sure you get a board with the chipset 945 and up....915 and 925 for example are pin compatible, but do not support ANY dual core CPUs

    I strongly advise you to CLEAR the CMOS.... unplug the power cable from the PSU, move the CMOS jumper to the "clear" position, wait 1 minute, move it back to the "normal" position , replug the power cable, turn on the computer and imediately go into the BIOS and load "Optimized Defaults" .....give that a try
  22. Just flashed it and was scared crapless, when I booted up the machine after flashing using dos it didn't wanna boot! 3 lights were on and the last 4th was flashing but nothing happened....I turned of the pc, disconected the power and went for the classic clear CMOS....loaded optimized defaults and reconfigured the options from scratch....priming right now as I write @ 2550mhz which I had trouble before...so far so good...
