  1. I'll run the tests tonight and come back with the results. Thanks for the input guys.
  2. Sorry guys. I'm running both an Antec NeoHE 550W PSU and the Thermaltake 250W PSU for Graphics Cards. I've replaced PSUs a number of times and have determined beyond a shadow of a doubt that the PSU is not to blame for any issues.
  3. I've been having a host of odd problems that I'm beginning to think are due to a mobo problem of some sort. I'm wondering if this might be yet another symptom of the problem. I get momentary screen blackouts. If, for example, I right click on a wmv file in order to select 'open', the screen momentarily blacks out (as in the monitor goes into standby, usually meaning that no video is outputting from the vid card.) before coming back on with the r-click menu up. Same thing happens if I left click on the nvidia desktop manager icon in my system tray. It also happens a few times while Windows is loading up. So, it only does this blackout thing for a second, and only when the computer is "doing something," but it's still an unusual behavior that I've never seen before. Could this be related to a power problem within the mobo? Or maybe a problem with the PCI-E slot?
  4. Regarding everything being plugged in properly. I have the 24 pin and the 4 pin ATX connectors plugged in, but what about the molex connector that's next to the IDE slots? Should that be connected as well?
  5. Hi guys. This problem has persisted across 2 powersupplies, a coolermaster 450W and an Antec NeoHE 550W. If I change any hardware, when I go to reboot the system, the power button does not power on the system. Instead LEDs start flashing. LED 4 (the ram led) and one of the diagnostic LEDs, as well as first LED on each of my Corsair XMS pro 1GB sticks flash repeatedly. The only way to get it to boot is to turn off the PSU via the switch and wait. It will then boot after a while, or after a few attempts. I can't tell what the deal is. Any clue?

  6. Awesome guys, thanks! That'll get me started.
  7. I've read through that guide and it tells me about how to set the RAM timings, but it does not mention if or why AUTO settings are not good. However, after reading it, I think I'll try some of those settings. Do I go through and set all these timings at once? How will I know if the system does not boot, which things to change?
  8. Hi guys, about RAM timings. Can you take a look at these settings at tell my if this is a problem as I clock my CPU up? Is there some reason I should set these manually? DRAM frequency Set AUTO Command Per Clock AUTO CAS Latency controll (Tcl) AUTO RAS# to CAS# delay (Trcd) AUTO Min RAS# Active Time(Trp) AUTO Row Precharge time 07 Bus Clocks Row Refresh Cyc tiem (Trfc) AUTO Row to Row delay (Trrd) 02 Bus Clocks Write recovery time 02 bus clocks write to read delay 02 bus clocks read to write delay 03 bus clocks Refresh period 3120 cycles Write CAS latency AUTO Bank Interleave Enabled The LTD/FSB is also set to AUTO LDT voltage control 1.2V Thanks a lot. -Ipecac
  9. Thanks for the help guys. I've got my HTT at 224, CPU Voltage is 1.34V, DRAM voltage is 2.7. LDT/FSB set to Auto. and I'm slowly increasing the HTT. Is there something else I should be adjusting as I go, or am I on the right track?
  10. Thanks for the reply. I'm reading about the RAM timings now, it's pretty complicated. When you say that there's and undervolt feature, you mean that if I set it to 1.5V it will actually run at 1.47V or so, not just SHOW that it does, right? Secondly, I heard that if a chip is default at 1.32V, you shouldn't go beyond 1.42V and expect to be safe. Did you mean I should try setting the voltage to 1.5V for the CPU? I have water cooling and CPU idles at around 28-30C.
  11. I'm new to overclocking and looking to take the next step. I've pushed the cpu up to 218MHz giving me a 218MHz X 11 = 2.398GHz and it's been okay for a long time. It's time to go a bit faster. I read through the AMD overclocking guide and came out a little unsure of some things. I have a few questions If I leave the LTD/FSB ratio set to auto, does it automatically keep the HTT in the "safe" range? It auto just means 5, then 5 X 218MHz X 2 = 2180 HTT, is that okay? Or should I set the LTD/FSB down to 4 and get 1744? Can I just leave the LTD/FSB on auto, adjust the voltage a little higher and increase the clock of the CPU until it won't boot, thus getting up to 2.6Ghz or something? Adjusting the voltage: I tried to up the voltage from 1.32 to 1.33, buy setting the voltage to 1.0V X 133% special adjustment. When windows booted, the voltage showed as 1.29V instead of 1.33V. Less than before. Eh? With that much variance from what I expected, I decided not to risk aiming for higher and have an accident. Sorry about all the questions, but I'm pretty much a noob here. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
  12. No, I just rebuilt my computer a month or two ago, and this install is as new as the mobo (and everything else). I also seem to have figured out that the large file I DL'd was maybe not corrupted after all, but that WINRAR was unable to open it, because WINZIP did it okay. What I don't understand is (maybe someone can tell me): why does the network connection icon in the system tray show my LAN as 10.0Mbps, when it's a 1.0Gbps LAN?
  13. Well, I just got done swapping out every cat5 cable, and the phone line that connects the modem to the wall jack. I tried hard-wiring my laptop to the modem, and got the same problem: obviously not the lan controllers on the dfi board, then. I am thinking the problem might be the modem, so I'm bidding on a siemens 4100 on ebay to replace this old, old dsl modem I have. People keep telling me it can't be the problem, but I think it might be. How could the modem cause the problem?
  14. Does anyone have any Idea why this could be? Hi.
  15. I've had internet problems lately. I had my modem plugged into the Marvell LAN, and it was saying "limited or no connectivity" and showing 10mbps as the speed (it should be 1.0GBps). It was 1.0GBps at first, but almost immediately dropped to 10mbps. So, I tried the NF4 plug. It showed up as 1.0GBps, but after a reboot, it's at 10mbps too (no limited connectivity warning though). Also, I've been trying to download this Auto Assault beta client which is 2.13GB, and I've gotten a corrupted file all three times. I heard that this could be a LAN problem. Maybe that would explain why my DSL speed is so erratic; jumping from 400kbps to 2.5gbps in DL throughput. This bandwidth problem might just be SBC. Any suggestions?
