  1. I didn't see anything in the guide about how to find your mobo's max HTT. Can anyone help?
  2. The max FSB of my board? What do you mean by that? Anyways, I'm using an Arctic Cooler Freezer 64 PRO. Before doing any overclocking, it idled at about 34-35.
  3. I am currently trying to find my CPU's max. This is what I have my stuff set to currently: RAM on a huge divider (running at DDR200 to take it out of the question) LDT Multiplier 2.5x (so this gives me an effective value of... 2.5x312x2 = 1560) HTT Frequency 312x9 (2800 or so Mhz) When I try to raise my HTT to anything over 313 or so, the computer won't get past the Windows boot screen (either that, or it just displays a blank screen or resets after the BIOS info screen). I have tried raising my Vcore from 1.35 (default) up to 1.4, and this has not helped. Have I reached my CPU's max Mhz? Temps are around 36 idle...
  4. so raising my vcore is out of the question?
  5. Why helo thar... I currently have an Arctic Freezer 64 Pro installed in my system. Right now, doing light windows work (web surfing), SmartGuardian reports my CPU temps at 33-36 degrees. I am worried that this is a bit high. I am currently running everything at stock (to allow my system time to burn-in before attempting to OC)... should I invest in a new CPU HSF, or are my temps acceptable? After dual Priming overnight my temps are about 40-41c. Thanks!
  6. Hmm I think I see the jumpers... how do I set them?
  7. I'd like to do the suggestions if I could find the jumpers. I said I looked thru the manual and didn't see anything about jumpers... I can't just randomly change jumpers!
  8. I am looking through the Ultra-D manual, and all it says is that both slots are PCI-E x16. I don't see anything about jumper settings.
  9. When I am looking at my video card properties, for some reason it reports the bus as PCI-Express x2... shouldn't it say PCI-Express x16? I have a DFI Lanparty Ultra-D (non-SLI) and an XFX GF7900GT.
  10. So I accidentally left the CPU fan unplugged for about 5hrs. Came back and noticed, and plugged the fan in. SmartGuardian reported the CPU temp as 38 or so (usual is around 36ish)... am I ok?
  11. I am using the pre-applied thermal stuff that was on the Arctic Freezer 64 PRO. I have... 4 case fans. I live in Arizona... outside it's about 110, and my house is around 79 or 80. I just primed all night (about 7hrs). Woke up and booted SmartGuardian, and my CPU was 40 or 41C. I guess that's the load temp? I did however notice that the "PWM IC" temp is reported as 51 or 52 degrees, and it's in red in Smartguardian. Do I need to worry about this?
  12. I recently got a DFI Lanparty Ultra-D (non-SLI) and an Opteron 165. I am using an Arctic Freezer 64 PRO. I installed Smartguardian off of the DFI driver disk, and whilst engaging in moderate tasks (desktop work... ~50% cpu load), Smartguardian reports a CPU temp of around 36 to 38 degrees. I have the CPU fan set to blow at full speed all of the time. Is this abnormal?
  13. Just bought a new rig with the following specs: Opteron 165 CCBBE 0615 EPMW 2gb G-Skill DDR 500 DFI Lanparty Ultra-D This replaces my old AXP 1900+ with 512mb ram and a GF4 Anyways, I have a few questions. 1.) Does using an Opteron with a DFI board void either the CPU or motherboard warranty? Apparently they aren't approved for one another? 2.) Is there any way of AMD knowing if I am overclocking my CPU, for warranty purposes? 3.) Is there any way of AMD knowing if I am using an aftermarket HSF, for warranty purposes? 4.) Realistically, is there real danger in overclocking CPU/RAM? I am under the impression that if you go to high, the DFI board will just shut the computer off. Thanks guys!
