  1. Limited yes, but so far I really cant tell the difference... maybe you can explain it to me? More options yes, but how frequently are they used? So far everyone that ive seen that has used a DFI board has got pretty much the same results as with a ASUS board... and the options that matter "most" I have, so why spend another 100 bucks or so just yet? I can see maybe way later on when 939 is truly outdated, but until then I see no reason to change. A opteron 165 with CCB1E stepping is pretty much getting the same amount of speed increase on a DFI as a ASUS sooo..? Dont get me wrong though, if I had to do it over again id get a DFI, but live and learn, and from what im seeing paying out $100 for a DFI is a waste of money, especially when I have a pretty decent dated mobo that works great. I might be wrong though, maybe there is some HUGE difference, but if there is and you have examples of how HUGE then maybe you could show me?
  2. Actually alot lol, considering DFI is *supposed* to be considered the "Advanced" motherboard.. That's why I didnt get one, not because I didnt want one.. im just not there yet ( and when I was thinking about building my computer this is where I came first and I liked it so im back, and your not getting rid of me HAHA!) . I will try running those, thanks
  3. It happens not very often about every 8-10 hours or so but my computer will just restart, no error messages or anything until it reboots back up I get the "Window has repaired a serious error". It happened once yest. and then about 13-14 hours later it happened again while I was asleep (downloading huge file). I know its not my temps because 1. The computer was idle 2. My temps never really rise above 38c, even under load so im lost as to what it could be? Memory perhaps? Im not sure... anyone have any ideas?
  4. yea...uhhhh sorry bout that.Its gone now. Anyway, you have to enlighten me ive never heard or used either of those before?

  6. Thanks for the help guys, it turns out I was trying to get my boot time down... and in trying to do so deleted some files I uhh...shouldnt have lol. Thanks again *edit* oh and I looked into those ram timings, you were right thanks!
  7. I keep trying to switch my bios settings but when I do and try to come back into windows (it gives me the little message about starting normally etc. btw ive chosen safe mode and normal), the computer automatically restarts... but it saves my settings so I know its not the cmos battery or anything like that, but when I unplug everything and let it set it gives me the option to set cmos defaults and when I do it goes to windows and its fine... anyone get that?:confused:
  8. (3200+ "venice") I've tried everything to get from 2.4ghz to 2.5 even... I tried timings with my memory (starting to think the flashy led's were a bad choice..lol) voltage (past 2.9v it doesnt even boot). I know this thing hast to be able to at least make 2.5ghz from just what i've seen, I mean I know all processors are different but with people hitting 250mhz above me... I must be doing something wrong. Anyone have any ideas?
  9. I also have been trying to get to 2.5 ghz, its a pain with this processor.. everytime I even get close and think I have it it eventually locks up oh how I cant wait for my opteron to arrive lol. (oh and better get a sig before "THEY" get you ....lol)
  10. Im about in the same boat as you, i've been trying as well to get the 3200+ past 2.4 it just doesnt want to go ...o and better get a sig before "THEY" get you....lol
  11. Thanks alot guys, I read from 7am yest. morning to 8pm at night (along with some messing around with my plt sgt's computer) and I would have to say that is the best way to learn, the whole HTT thing had me pretty confused at first but I finally got it lol. I wondered about the PSU, I had read some reviews on some others that had downed it, hmmm..., but anyway thanks again
  12. Ok, heres my situation. Im on a deployment in Bosnia, nothing to do and nowhere to go, A whole year of time....nothing but time, but to the point. Im building a system while im here. I know quite a bit about computers and the such, but theres alot of things I have no clue about, and of course (the reason im here) overclocking sure is one of those things. Now hold on before you say anything about the motherboard I have selected lol, I already know and have heard it from my platoon seargeant as well. I wont even think about OC'ing it or touching it until I know where to begin, what not to do, what to go into slowly etc. etc. Which is way im starting on his computer lol , so to the next point, wheres the best place to start, where to get the basics, (beginners guide if you will) I mean even the best started out knowing nothing right?The items below is the parts i've either ordered or already have. I dont expect this system to be together completely until I get home sometime next year. Im looking for that basic info that almost every OC'able motherboard has so I can start from there (I.E. Whats that do? Whats that effect? How would this help or how would it jack me up?)Some things I look at and I understand and it makes sense but theres alot of it im dumbfounded on... like I said ive got plenty of time to read, experiment etc. Any and all help and direction would be appreciated.
