    Good tv tuner card.

    Hi. I was wondering if anyone has any advice on a tv tuner to get. I would like high quality tv with divx recording.. HDTV is ok but i wont be using it.. thanx
  2. Ok.. So, I have been OCing for quit a while now and am trying to get to GGG. I use the OCDB to find similar setups and use those as a starting point for my rig. One thing though. Whenever I see a reference to DRAM drive strength, It always from level 1-8... In my BIOS "704-2bta" The options are as follows. level 1 weak/normal level 2 weak/normal level 3 weak/normal level 4 weak/normal Now this is 8 levels but im not sure what each equals? Eg.. Lets say a post said DRAM Drive strenght level 7 What would the equivelant in my BIOS be? Thanks to anyone that can clear this up for me...

    Rear sound issue.

    My front case has a one big connection. It doesnt use a bunch of single ones. I just thought that there was a fix for this. I have been plugging the main speakers into the front phones jack but Its getting annoying.
  4. Hey.. I have a simple sound setup. I just use line out to go to an amplified RIGHT/LEFT and a small SUB. ($25setup..) It worked fine until I removed the jumpers on the karijan audio module to connect the front panel audio. -The front panel works fine..Mic/Phones -The rear line out does not fully work. Left speaker works fine, Sub works fine, Right speaker has no sound.. Does anyone have an idea of what I can do to get the rear to work..? P.S. I don't try to use both front and rear at the same time....
  5. Hey guys.. Im having a problem with my stability and thing I have it narrowed down. Whenever I have extended periods of high download rates (USB wifi) and at the same time use my tv tuner (USB). My computer freezes and I am forced to restart. It only happens when both devices are under heavy use. I think its coming down to current draw through the USB bus. Both get really hot so I think they must be using alot of juice.. I believe that the USb can provide up to 500mah? I may be wrong.. I have heard that the USB connections on the MOBO that you would use for front panel or those extentions for the rear PCI slots are on a different channel than the intergrated ones on the back of the MOBO. If so I could seperate the 2 devices and regain stability? Can anyone confirm this? thankx for any advice..

    USB channels on ultra-d

    Thats a good point you have there. Im going to try using the front panel usb's to see if there is a difference. I also have a PCI USB card. So the PCI slot would be powering/transfering the data.. Hopefully something will work.

    OC'ing w/ CnQ?

    Just use the BIOS and raise the FSB.. But watch your temps and the RAM speeds...
  8. Hey guys.. I have a problem here.. My boss has a ASUS A8n-SLI deluxe at work we use for your "server". He wants to use ECC ram in it, with it does support.. However. When I started looking to buy some. I can only find registered ECC ram.. I'm not sure if this is supported by this mobo and cant seem to find any info on weather it does or not... I do know it has to be un-buffered but thats all I can find on it.. So my question is.. Will ECC registered ram work with this mobo? If not is there a such thing as ECC non-registered ram? Thanks guys...
  9. Its your ram not the cpu.... You need to adjust your timings.....Do you have a acreenie of the BIOS?
  10. Your doing ok there.. For 2700Mhz you shouldnt need to go over 1.4v-1.45v. What kind of memory timing options does that board have? With that much of a divider, your gonna need to adjust the secondary memory timings.. A better PSU is always a good idea, but the volts on yours do seem ok..

    CPU dilemma?

    Look in the OCDB and you'll begin to see a trend on the CPU's of choice.. 165/170 CCBBE. Also the current steppings being shipped seem to give good OC results as well..
  12. thanx for that info..
  13. Is it at all possible too run 4 sticks at 1T?

    Orthos

    No, Just how it gives up resources to other system tasks..
  15. I really dont know how you got these numbers, but I think you got it figured out now. Just be careful with the calculations...
  16. Sorry '/. does equal /......(divided by).. You do have it now except that next 166 divider is 12 not 11.. In the case we are looking at, here is how the dividers look.... 200=10 <-(cpu multiplier)--275mhz 180=11--250mhz 166=12--229mhz 150=13--211mhz
  17. ok. no where in your calculations did i see you use the "CPU SPEED" This is why your calculations are WRONG. It would look like this.. 275x10=2750MHZ (cpu speed) 2750 (cpu speed) '/, 11 (180 divider) = 250MHZ "DDR500" the 200 divider or 1:1 is always the CPU multiplyer (eg. 10 in the above case) Each step down is an increase in "1" of this number. So the 180 divider is 10+1=11..And so on..... Get it?
  18. 200ddr is 1:1 ratio so if the FSB is 275 then the ram is also 275. The divider works like this.. CPU SPEED '/. Divider = Ram speed So for example 300FSB with a 9X multi using the 180 divider.. 2700mhz '/. 10 (180 divider) = 270Mhz "ram speed" (DDR540) ------------------------------------------------------------ If it were the 200 divider then it would be like this 2700mhz '/. 9 (200 divider) = 300mhz "ram speed" (DDR600) Hope this helps...
  19. Why did you make that upgrade. By the way it looks, you actually downgraded. 2.8 to 2.6 doesnt make much sense to me?

    AMD and Lightspeed

    The stepping on the cpu lid. Eg. CCBBE0616

    Vista Ultimate Problem!

    Well at least one of the problems.. hehehe

    A tale of 2 CCBBEs, which to keep.

    Hi. i have the 0616 and its pretty good. I havent tried to go over 2.8v, because of the massive amount of time needed to tweak the RAM. I have a feeling it can do GGG though. I would say both are great chips (based on stepping) but only testing will tell which is the winner..
  23. I have the same heatsink. They say its not very smooth on purpose.. I dont know for what purpose but I did lap mine with some 1500g wet/dry and now its like a mirror. 40C idle and 50C load. With my current OC..
  24. Check in the OCDB for similar setups and try their timings.. Thats a good way to get started.
