  1. Agreed...except that the Devils don't have the Duo SS anymore...hehehehe Last time they were champions they had them.... Again...I'm not saying the Devils are a bad team, they're not...but they didn't exactly played first class teams on their current streak.... Rangers are a joke...don't even know how the heck did they qualify... Anyway...now it will get interesting since the boys have been separated from the men....
  2. Let's see about that... I think Carolina showed some serious playing against the Canadiens, think the devils are gonna get past them? This kid Cam Ward showed some solid goal tending...he's gonna give Elias, Gomez, etc a run for their money...
  3. It might be ugly...but it's no slouch.... check this out...
  4. .....I was thinking about getting an X-fi .... That's nasty... I guess I will be sticking with onboard audio until something non-problematic comes along.... Nice article btw....
  5. Totally agree, I personally dislike the twinkling lights that it emits, but heck, in your case they won't even show up since the cooler will be totally covered...lol I bought one just as a back up plan in case my original fan goes bad...I followed the awesome guide that angry put together and replaced the yellow goop DFI uses as a thermal interface and put it AS5....let's just say my 7800GT CO is over the primary 16x slot covering the chipset now and under load, the temperatures never exceed 46C at 4000 RPM.....needless to say the video card fan turns out to be louder than the chipset fan ever will be....
  6. Don't know if that's your problem but your PSU is a 400W ? Well...if it is, it doesn't meet the minimum requirements to run the NF4 board....let alone overclock it....so I'd recommend you put in a more powerful PSU just to see if that's holding your overclock back.... See if you can borrow one from a friend...
  7. 72c on a Hard drive??? lol Are you kidding me ??
  8. What he means n33b is that the board is temperature sensitive, which means it will start or stop the CPU fan according to temperature readings and settings you yourself determine that the fan should turn on and off... there's a section in the bios called "PC Health Status" in there you can set the fan to start spinning or stop spinning at a given temperature of the CPU.... For a good balance you could setup the fan start up spin to....say .....30C and to spin at its maximum speed at 50C since nobody wants to have a CPU past 50c anyway.... don't be afraid to go into the bios and change it since if you installed the HSF correctly chances are your CPU is running too cool to need the fan spinning anyway....
  9. It doesn't matter....all ports receive the same treatment as far as the BIOS is concerned....there's no more master and slave stuff anymore with SATA
  10. Go into the BIOS in the "Advanced Chipset Features" There's an option called "Memory Hole MMIO" or something of the sort...don't remember by heart....make sure it's ENABLED if you wanna see all 4 gigs recognized in the BIOS and everywhere else....
  11. Really? I tought the system would only see a single core because when windows was installed on a single core machine, the HAL installed was for a sigle core only... in the device manage it says "APCI single core Processor" whereas a multi core system would have "APCI Multicore processor".... I maybe wrong but it seems I saw this here somewhere....
  12. Nice to know that there are people that are broad minded specially in the hollywood world.... Very interesting article
  13. 3.0GHZ with 1.55v....Hummm..... I have the same stepping as you...interesting...
  14. Welcome to my world brotha.... I just installed my new opty 165 yesterday to replace my x2 3800+ and before at 2500mhz the PWMIC temp was 42C under load...now with the opty at 2565mhz it runs at 47C....a good 5C increase....thinking about installing a fan on top of it... don't know what's the best way yet...I have a spare 80mm fan laying around but have no idea how to fix the thing...
  15. Any fan that can push 40cfm for the xp-90 will do it.... cuz the heavy work is done by the HS anyway....
  16. I am currently testing mine as I just got it yesterday and I'm at 285x9 = 2565mhz at 1.4v running dual prime instances at 46C load....I have a xp-90 with a panaflo fan ....with my old Manchester at 2.500mhz it used to run at 41, 42C on load both cores....damn these Optys are toasty....
  17. Lanpartys D, Ultra-D, SLI-D and SLI-DR have the exact same BIOS and layout....the only thing different is the DR has an extra RAID controller... nothing in the bios tell you wich version you have...the boards themselves might have the right model written on them just above the memory slots... Even if you go to the DFI website and look for BIOSes you'll see only one for all the aforementioned models....
  18. Hey burky...I have the exact same revision as you...how are your temps?
  19. Since everybody here is talking about chipset coolers I'm gonna but in here with a question that has been burning into my head...and I'm sorry again for the question but it might be useful to others as well....I noticed that there are two versions of the evercool....the VR-CE and VR-CF..... everybody here seem to recommend the VR-CE and nobody says anything about the CF.....is the CF compatible with the DFI NF4? I know for a fact that the main difference is the annoying twinkling lights on the CE which I couldn't care less about, specially since I have a clear sided case and I hate bright stuff.... Thanks
  20. Did this game ever worked fine with you or not? if yes, then is there any changes you made in the system that could have caused the problem?
  21. Well....he does have a powerstream....I don't think that would be his problem...
  22. Humm....if only the chipset fan has been replaced, I wonder if you didn't crack the chipset core....that part where you have to put your chipset HSF back on top of the chipset can be dangerous....I just cleaned the yellow thermal goop and applied AS5 this weekend...but didn't start the machine as I sold my x2 and am waiting for my opty to arrive....I just hope I didnt'crack the damn thing....
