  1. The problem I am having is I can't get the ram to run at 250MHZ it shows up in the bios as DDR400. When I check in the bios I only see settings up to 233MHZ. How can I get this up to 250. Some of the people in another thread were trying to help me but I just couldn't get it. I have read the "THE" Definitive DFI AMD Overclocking guide! a couple of times and am still reading it as well as the one over at the MSI forums by Kingfisher and the one at XtremeSystems Forums.
  2. I was typing the same time you were.I did, though I would like to get it up to about 2300mhz-2400mhz for him which I didn't think would be much of a problem for this CPU with XTreem DDR500 ram. I haven't figured out this OC thing yet I guess. Thank for the help.
  3. Got it, I panicked and wasn't thinking straight when I posted but after I thought to reset the CMOS and that did it. Not much security if that's all you have to do. Thanks anyway.
  4. I have been trying to OC an Opty 165 in a rig I just built. I made the settings in the bios and after when a few attempts failed The post screen says "Please re-setting CPU frequency in the CMOS setup" I booted into the bios and this time it asked for a password which I never set in the first place. I am supposed to give this computer to the owner tomorrow morning. Any help will be greatly appreciated. TIA. :confused:
  5. I have read the stickies and the one over at MSI forums but I didn't understand them. I tried to OC my system and lost access to my OS had to reinstall and lost everything and I don't want to do it again that is why I am asking questions. That is good advice, read and reread the stickies. I will go back and read again. Thanks for the help.
  6. I just got one of the opty's from Newegg and have a question about the the ram, I have read the stickys but am confused. If I understand it right to get a 1:1 ratio with PC3200 I set the dram frequency to 200 but what about PC4000 how do I get a 1:1 ratio with it.
  7. Still a little confused, I would leave the ram at 200 if it is PC3200 but what about PC4000 it's DDR500? Thanks for the help.
  8. Much more, thank you. So if I want my ram to run at 500 I set the FSB to 250 and then do I leave the dram frequncy on auto?
  9. The ram I am interested in is in a computer I just put together, it is using Team XTreem DDR500 3-3-3-8 I changed the bios version in my sig it is also the same one that I used in the new rig. Maybe I misunderstood the settings then, I thought it went to 233mgz. Next time I boot I will check.
  10. The bios only goes up to 233mhz, I would like to go to 500 or more.
  11. Now that the Jing Ting has been around for awhile do you still feel the Evercool is the best cooler(Ultra-D)?
  12. I have tried to repair the MBR with the windows cd but didn't know about the WD disk, good tip, thanks. My OS is working good because I reinstalled it on another drive(and yes it is legit)a Seagate I got from Newegg with the FX 55. I was worried about the activation because I just activated it the other day and it is an OEM version, not sure how many times they let you reactivate. Thanks for the help.
  13. I have 2X1gb of Team Group XTreem ddr500 3-3-3-8 that I will be putting in another computer for a friend. If I put it in my computer to try it out will any points be deducted from my windows installation(will it count as a hardware change)? I have read through the OC'ing guides and am having a hard time understanding it, I have had many crashes and the last one my OS became hidden. I think it is still there because I have not done anything to uninstall it and it is listed on the boot screen but there is no boot.ini file anywhere and I can't change the boot order in msconfig but windows can't see it. I had to reinstall Windows on another drive. I would like to test this knew FX 55 with the XTreem ram (not looking for max. OC). Is there a few easy things I can do to get an idea how this cpu and ram will work then if it is good I may buy a kit of the XTreem for myself. Thanks for all the help.
  14. Will this count as a hardware change and then another when I put mine back in. When I swap back and put my ram back in will I have to do the stability testing again? Thanks.
  15. RGone, I downloaded the HCI program and will run it today. Is the memtest86+ you refer to differenet from the one that is in the bios? Thanks for the suggestion. I have 2X1gb of Team Group XTreem ddr500 3-3-3-8 that I will be putting in another computer for a friend.

Thanks for all the help.
  16. Great shots that is what I was looking for. I was thinking of putting it the other way so it blows up to the psu, not a bad idea. Do you think it would be better than blowing it out the back. I second that.
  17. I had the same problem with a MSI board and I did the same as elessar777 I went from 2-2-2-2 to 2.5-4-4-8 and it worked for me. Is the bios set at 1T or 2T, try 1T. I have used 1 stick of cheap ram before and that has worked. Not sure if this would pertain to a DFI board but I had to do it everytime I reinstalled with the MSI. Just out of curiosity have you run the drives manufactors sortware.
  18. No to all, I will be building it this weekend then I will follow your prescription. Thank you. I just installed a FX 55 and have been using a program called cpu-burnin. Is it possible it could have damaged the cpu, if so is there a way to tell?
  19. What are your feeling on this and do you know a good soruce of info.TIA.
  20. I didn't know I had the option to turn it towards the back. How do I turn it so it blows out the back? I checked my video card and it is 54° at idle so I need to change the direction. Just installed it about four days ago, do I need to apply more AS5?
  21. Which way am I supposed to put it on, blowing up at the psu or down on my vid card?
  22. Your welcome. Nice rig, I have been trying to find one of those evga 7900 GTO with 512mb ram but there almost impossible to find without costing an arm and a leg.
  23. I believe they were sincere in what they were saying, I didn't want to take a chance so I bought one at Tiger Direct for $99 after rebate until 11-15.http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/Se...4&Sku=O261-2005
  24. I will, thanks for the advice. Do people here get on you about your Ultra X-Connect X2. I had one and every time I had a problem the first thing they say was get rid of the X-Connect so I finally did. I know they had troubles with the first generation but I thought they had them fixed for the X-Connect X2. I read some good reviews on it before I bought it. Found a good deal on the OCZ so I bought it, don't want to take any chances.
