  1. Hi I don't know if feedback is the appropriate word, but I wanted to share my opinions/problems after a month of using my *new* rig. Everything is working relatively well, except two things : - I can't make my computer waking up when I made him sleep (dunno how it's called in english : "mettre en veille" in french...). He is running (fans are working) but my monitor isn't awake. -My video card. 7900 GT, stock o/c @520/750... After a RMA "they" told me everything was all right. I installed the 91.31 beta, and everything is going well for... two weeks now. Maybe my "overclocking" is faulty (overclocking means I set my CPU @10*250 then it will be synchronous with my memory). Since I got my card back, I set it @12*200, and my memory followed. Problem, retailer says it's not recommended to run teh memory @200. I checked the stability with OCCT, it appears to be good (but, where the hell are some "graphics" or stuff like that ?) I checked my PCI E bus speed, it was @100 Mhz (I want to precise that I let everything on Optimized Defaults in my 12.07 BIOS). If you have some advices to optimize it and to say goodbye to "Auto", you're welcome. But I'm getting far from teh topic, so let's ask TEH question : Is my sort of o/c the reason why my card went bad ? By the way, thanks to DFI Street, I didn't get any weird issues when I built it. Everything went perfectly, I love my rig. Thanks. EDIT : Oops, by the way, I saw there was a "run memtest" in da BIOS. Is this TEH memtest ? It means I "only" select Enable, save and exit, and then it runs ?
  2. Well, I'm very excited to have one. I play fast fps like Quake most of my gaming time, but other games fit well the precision of the mouse. Even if you only want to surf on the web or chat on msn or something, it's still a mouse. A normal mouse. Probably not as comfortable as a MX, you just need to like hanging it with your fingers. (sorry if you don't understand, my english is bad sometimes ^^)
  3. No. But I think it's not the problem. It works perfect, no issues, no weird bugs, stable with OCCT...
  4. I was using the 91.28 beta. I'll ask the shop about their drivers, their rigs, etc. I hope that my PSU isn't "bad" (= unable to deliver efficient power or something like that)... Or maybe I should flash my mobo BIOS... I'll see, I'll probably get my card back this week
  5. Damned. I went back to the shop where i bought my 7900 GT. They ran 3DMark06 for six hours, they didn't get anything wrong. What now ?
  6. Yep. G.Skill HZ rocks. Don't hesitate, you won't be disappointed !
  7. Yeah, I have the same, and it is faulty too. Good luck !
  8. So tell me good luck. Btw, I mailed them because my 7900 Gt was (uh, is !) bad, and they answered me quick.
  9. You mean Noisetaker 600W is a bad PSU for a DFI Expert ? :confused: It is in the "list", isn't it ?
  10. I got an Enermax Noistaker (I !) 600W, SLi Ready, I hope it will work. I'll recieve it tomorrow. If you don't need extra power (i guess 500W is enough for a "normal" system, even if it's SLi), go for the OCZ 520W. I hope it answers to your question.
  11. [Freepost ON] Mack27, I have the same card as you, UDE 520/1500, W0406, ver. 1.2, etc. However, I didn't try to run it because my setup is still under construction. I will get it probably in this week or in the next week. In France (yes i'm french), a lot of people is having problems with their 7900GTs. XFX seems to be the most "problematic". But, the shop where i bought my card only 1% RMA for 7900 GT ! So i hope my 7900 gt would run well. [Freepost OFF]

    Hard Drives

    What do you mean ? I also bought this hard drive (it should be delivered in the week), i don't wanna use another hard drive to install my OS... btw, does it require s-ata drivers ? thx.
  13. In France : http://www.materiel.net http://www.e-network.fr (i bought my DFI here).
  14. So you advise me (us ?) to install the 84.56 ForceWare instead of the one on the XFX's CD, right ? Some people say it's not the driver's fault, some people are running well with the 84.21, other with other drivers. Damn, I'm going crazy ! :drool:
  15. I found it (for my XFX lol) under the serial number : W0406 i think. (or Warranty 0406 or something like that :tooth: )
  16. I have the 1.2, does it mean it's a second review ? And, I hear that a lot of people speak of bios for the graphic cards, where can i find one ? (i didn't know there were bios for graphic cards )
  17. I've bought a XFX 7900 Gt UDE from 25 march 2006 (the sticker on the box). I didn't tested it (i don't have my mobo ftm), so i put candles around the box and i prayed all the night :tooth: I hope it will work, really... EDIT : After a short look on the S/N, I do have the same week as you : 04/06. May God save the card :angel:
  18. Ok, thank you so much guys !
  19. Yeah, I'm not going to run SLi right now, but "soon" :shake: I didn't say that SLi DR was a bad board, I'm sure it owns !
  20. I've read your answer days ago (yesterday ?)... and I'm still confused. Guys on french forums (yes we do have forums !) advise me an Expert... So Angry, Oh great Angry, could you tell me more about your opinion ? (and yes it's difficult to find Evercool VC-RE in France ) Thx.
  21. Yeah, I know, there are billions threads about it. But, like the "other", I'm still hesitating between SLi-DR or Expert. Money doesn't matter. I just expect from my board : - STA-BI-LI-TY ! - Less bugs as possible - PCIe Slots ! - Complete BIOS - Cool, and quiet. (yeah, i guess it's the same but i've heard Expert was cooler than the other. maybe it was wrong). Also, I'm interested in Expert because of the Chipset placement : video cards are not just upon the fan, but on the "metal". Also note that it will be my first DFI-build, so i hope Expert isn't more difficult to build as the "other" (yeah i know it's a bit confused ^^) See my signature for what i'm using (i already have other components, except psu). Thanks for replying. Best regards, -Free_Free
  22. Yep, I guess your PSU will deliver enough power for SLi. I've heard that we can order SLi Bridges on "Japan websites", but that's all...
