  1. Praz, I just tried the link, and it works. Don't understand what the prob. could be. Would greatly appreciate your contribution. Phoetus, Thanks for the effort, but could you read my posting, and answer its question. It's a specific question, derived from the OC'ing tutorial on this forum. I am assuming that the author of the quoted phrase knows what he is talking about, that he is seeking to share the benefit of his knowledge and skill, and that he is using the term "HTT" to specify something, not to assert a generality. It seems that he is clearly referring to a screen setting in bios. Which of the screens in the link do you think he is referring to ? Others, if you don't want to help or talk about computers, and you believe that your internet mission is to assert lame witicisms and juvenile name calling, then just keep your itty bitty fingers off of the keyboard. It's almost like keeping your mouth shut, only easier.
  2. Praz, I just tried the link, and it works. Don't understand what the prob. could be. Would greatly appreciate your contribution. Here it is again: http://www.panchogun.com/FVWebPhotos/compu...-FSB-Arrows.jpg Phoetus, Thanks for the effort. I think the answer is #4. What do you think ? Others, Wow, it only took 9 replies to get an answer, #4. If you don't want to help or talk about computers, and you believe that your internet mission is to assert lame witticisms and juvenile name calling, then just keep your itty bitty fingers off of the keyboard. It's almost like keeping your mouth shut, only easier. One tip though, it's more fun to just talk about computers, remember them ?
  3. No kidding. Have already wikpedia'd it, etc. My posting even contains the very info you think you imparted. How about a simple answer to my simple question? Is it on these screens, yes / no ? If yes, which screen ? If no, then no. PS. Please, this does not have to be typically and needlessly repetetive and pedantic. These postings should not be a waste of our time. Am asking for help. Just a simple answer to a simple question.
  4. Re.: Need ID HTT bus Hello, The term "HTT bus" seems to be used to refer to multiple items. I need to ID the term re. the specific reference below. The following quote from the OC'ing guide/forum/et.al. makes reference to an "HTT bus". Which screen number in the following image (see link) represents the settings for the HTT bus (in red) in the quote ? ********** but its not stable! the HTT bus is too high...lets drop it down to 3x HTT... 280x2 = 560Mhz DDR time 3x HTT = 1680Mhz HTT now we get back in the '1200-1800' range. Much more stable as we know our A64 will max Mhz @ 2660 for example just like the AthlonXP. ********** Image link: http://www.panchogun.com/FVWebPhotos/compu...-FSB-Arrows.jpg
  5. Well just did some initial OC'ing today, and upvolted dram to 2.13v, and modded cpu multi, and HTT, and ran Super Pi 1Mb twice (once for each cpu core), and CDMark06 score of 5386, and seems stable at 10x222=2230. Can post these bios screens if you want.
  6. Look at posting #11. Since I lack the capacity to read minds, or to divine the unknown, your sparse posting indicates that the codes are on page 10 of the manual, since my question is asking, where are the diagnostic codes. Let me guess, you're offended and find it unbelievable that anyone could have misunderstood you. I certainly hope that that is not the case. Seems to be a lot of that sensitivity going around.
  7. Were the screens any help? Wow, it always seems so hard to believe that you have gotten a bad item, mobo or otherwise, but, it happens. If a Newegg purchase, then, worry not, they will treat you right. Sure wish some others would have posted or tried to help. This is starting to seem to be a pretty desolate place. I would try to reseat everything--mem, cpu, vid card, PSU cables, everything--and try it again. I know that my next door neighbor asked me for help re. a booting prob., and I went over and reseated everything, and the darned thing fired right up. I was stupefied, but, to this day, he thinks I'm some sort of computer guru. Ignorance can be bliss, though, most of the times, it's plain old ignorance, with a healthy dash of luck.
  8. We have the same mem and mobo. I'm going to take some photos of my bios screens and post them. Maybe this will help. If I'm not back 20 minutes, then send help. I'm back. I have everything at default--no mods. Hope to overclock, when I figure it out. Dram voltage is at 1.85. Here are the screens: http://www.panchogun.com/FVWebPhotos/Compu...nie-Screens.jpg
  9. I have the fleeting suspicion that some read these postings, have info., but the question is considered too menial too elicit their knowledgeable response. I can understand that. It's a common reaction among us--a common failing in humanity. We relish the rare opportunities to shine, and instead, scoff at the mundane. Perhaps, here, in this forum, some brave and noble soul will step forward, and impart his knowledge and experience to help out the struggling masses of ineptitude and ignorance--help us emerge from the primordial ooze, and step forward into overclocking enlightenment. Maybe not. Maybe it is the cruel lot of the stupified nooby to remain in a black oblivion, never to overclock, never to mod his cpu multiplier and HTT frequency compatibly with him mem. It's a grim reality, and then your PC crashes, with no help from your fellow overclocker. But, still, there are those of us that are deserving of the minute or two.
  10. Hey, take a peek at our old topic. I found some info. and posted a copy of a DFI tech response re. the diagnostic codes. Here's a link: http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=72128
  11. Before I posted, did a "Diagnostic Code" search and its variations on this AMD forum, nothing showed up, and they are not on P.10 of the manual. I tried to do the responsible thing, but didn't search ATI. Then I posted. No help--like no one was reading my posting. When I made a comment about "no help", then everyone shows up. Hmm ? Anyway, the codes I have posted are straight from the horse's mouth. I would believe DFI's to be a highly credible response to my posting. If I ever have any other info. that might be of help to the good folks on this forum, then I will always post it. My feeble Nooby effort to pay back for some of the very good help I have received on these forums. Merry Christmas PS. Oh well, such is life on this crazy mixed up internet or ours.
  12. Well, I emailed DFI Tech Support, and got the following response. I remain impressed by DFI. Too bad no one on this forum was able to help us with this.

  13. Board has LED readout for two character codes. Shows bunch of different numbers etc., during start up, problems, etc. Need know where to find these codes. Seems like a stupid and pointless feature, unless we can understand and use the codes. Link: http://www.panchogun.com/FVWebPhotos/Compu...LED-ReadOut.jpg
  14. Good info. I was worried re. were the wires configured correctly. Shouldn't come loose, since both 4 pin plugs have that retention clip, and it fit nicely, without any wobble, like it was meant to be installed that way. Thanks
