  1. How much to ship to Montreal? the full price I mean
  2. How much do you want for it to ship to Montreal, Canada? and how do I pay you?
  3. Change the pagefile size to reflect the amount of memory you have which you didn't state in your sig by the way.... double the amount of ram and a half... ex if you have a gig of ram set your page file size at 2.5gbs
  4. Do a search and you'll find out....there are tons of threads about this....
  5. There's only one brand of hard drives that gives grief to its owners and that is Maxtor....stay away from it.....had issues with nforce4 and ICHR5 when I had a p4....they overheat( more so than the other brands) so...avoid the head aches.... Western Digital and Hitachis are the kings...
  6. Which drivers are you using for IDE? Microsoft or Nvidias?
  7. That's strange...tought there was no north bridge south bridge in the Nf4....it's a single chipset only...
  8. Your kit is the 1 gig one, that requires a lot of voltage to reach 2.2.2.5 timings....3.2v at least if I'm not mistaken....so you might need to increase the voltage quite a bit...
  9. If you re trying to boot with 3 sticks of RAM forget it....only 1, 2 and 4 sticks work...
  10. That's the source of my problems I believe...my ac97 shares the same IRQ with the Sata controller....I disabled everything I don't need but no matter what settings I try in the BIOS the freaking sound controller ends up sharing an irq with the damn sata controller....result? Sound stops at gaming....after about 20 minutes.... does anybody know a way of manually changing irq's in XP if there's any?
  11. I'd not complain if I were you...apparently that's THE MEMORY to choose for 2 gig setup when overclocking.....so just accept it and hbe happy with it...
  12. There was a limitation on the old cores memroy controllers (Clawhammer etc) that only worked at 333mhz with 4 sticks of ram, in your case, it's a new Dual core with improved memory controller so it should work fine with 4 sticks at 400mhz as long as the Command per Clock is set to "disabled"
  13. Single core CPU's overclock better as a general rule...apparently the opterons are kings when it comes to overclocking...so maybe you could try one...people that have those seem to be very happy with it...
  14. Either that of he can get one of the new cores...
  15. I went from a 20-pin Ultra X-connect 500w to a Powerstream and it didn't increase anything as far as overclocking....the only advantage I have now is stability peace of mind...
  16. Isn't the LDT voltage the Hypertransport voltage? if that's the case why would a voltage increase in that make any difference as long as his Hypertransport is within spec? say...at 3x multiplier
  17. When the memory runs at 333 with 4 sticks is a limitation of the cpu memory controller...never the board....the board can run fine at 400mhz....no matter what bios you have, if you have an old revision CPU (Clawhammer) for instance, it won't run at 400....the new ones "Venice, San Diego, X2's" can all run at 400mhz with 4 dimms....
  18. I know you can boot from a USB key, however I'm not sure if within the windows installation process a USB key would be recognized as a "floppy" I think when windows looks for "raid drivers" it specifically looks for a floppy, not usb keys...then again I'm not 100% sure.... Booting from a USB key is another story since it's not windows that looks for the device...it's the BIOS itself....
  19. I see this thread is deviating quite a bit from its original purpose...lol
  20. While booting keep the "insert" key pressed and see if that allows you to get into the bios
