    All those should be good. And people like OCZ too. I wouldn't go with Corsair. I've seen alot of people have trouble with DFI and Corsair.

     

    2x512 should be enough, I wish I hadn't gotten 2gigs and instead got some DDR500 when I bought my rig.


  2. I have a UT, which I believe is the better one and it came with round IDE cables and floppy cable, sata power and data cables, sli bridge, and some jumpers. I don't know what the non-UT one comes with but I always thought the UT was the better and was confused by the price differnce.

     

    Oh and I heard that UT is for "UV on Tweak Fun" but again i'm not sure.


  3. Thanks ExRoadie. Couldn't find it on the forums but I googled it and made a boot disk. And when I booted from the disk it went right to the Flashing screen and it says Please Wait. Its been there for about 2 hours now and I don't want to turn the power off because all I've ever heard is not to turn it off durring flashing BIOS, even though i'm not sure what its doing.

     

    Anyone know if its safe to shut it down, or do you have other suggestions?


  4. Thanks RGone. How do I use that zip file, I just copy the files onto a floppy? Does it have to be formatted or anything special? I don't know too much about that kinda thing.

     

    I tried this twice now and first got "Improper Disk" and then "NTLDR Missing". I was using WinRAR to extract the contents of the .zip file to a floppy.


  5. Two days ago I made a CD with Tmods BIOS Flash Utility on it and tried to change to the 406bta BIOS in an attempt to gain more overclockability. It worked but I only got about 50MHz so I tried teh 704bta, which seemed to make the temps really high, so I deciced to go back to stock. So I put in Tmods CD and flash 11/14/05.

     

    Heres where it gets weird. And stupid.

     

    First thing I notice is that the "LAN Party NF4" Logo that appears at startup isn't there. I first noticed it was gone when I flashed to 704bta, but assumed it was part of the new BIOS and expected it to return with the switch back, but alas. So, I decide to do a CMOS clear to maybe return that to normal, but now after the minute or so CMOS clear the logo is still absent and now the computer states that it is in safe mode and my CPU fan can't decide if it wants to run or not. Because the fan kept switching on and off I shut it down restarted, and now the fan runs, it still says safe mode, I hit F1 to continue and get into windows, which seems to start slow. Then I see my background with no icons or taskbar and no programs start as they normally would. So I did another CMOS clear overnight, and today I got the same stuff.

     

    I can still run programs from Task Manager, and they all seem to work. So I was wondering if anyone knows what happened and how to fix it, even though I'd be surprised if anyone bothered to read all that crap, sorry for writing so much. I'd really appreciate the help, thanks.


  6. Smartguardian says that my chipset voltage is 1.16v. It is set to 1.6v in BIOS. So I was wondering if this is a problem and what causes it (i'm sure my PSU will come into question on that), or is it just Smartguardian misreading the voltage and if thats possible is there another program I could use to check? Thanks.


  7. I'm a senior in highschool and spend half the day in school and the other half working for a plumber. I'm looking into getting A+ cerftification and network+ or CISCO, not sure what i'm going to do with that though.

  9. I don't really think its a big problem, like people are trying to cheat at the OCDB, but I guess you could. I don't know why we cant use Orthos on our 939s, but whatever.

     

    Back to kBruno's problem, I would run two instances of Prime95 as outlined in that link Pras posted there. As for it not being stable after 12 hours, its really up to you, because its unlikely that you would get errors durring normal use, because Prime runs your CPU harder that just about anyother program you would. It just depends on how anal you are about stability.
