  1. the dfi infinity boards are some of the best out there. i haven't heard of very many people that have had problems with them unless they were DOA. they are amazing at ocing and have great features. if u want the dfi board then definitely stick with it.

    Comp Doesn't Start Up

    well i got to try a friends psu and it worked perfectly fine, so i just ordered a new one. the psu i have now only has 17A on the +12V rail, but i've never had a problem with it before. every time i try to start it up, the psu makes an electrical crackling noise, so that's my best guess is just that its dying.

    Comp Doesn't Start Up

    All the lights come on and the hard drive spins up, like it normally would if it were working.
  6. Every time I go to start up my computer, it starts up for 5 seconds and then just shuts off. The light on the motherboard stays on the whole time, but i have to shut off the power supply until the light goes off to be able to try starting it up again. It has been doing this for a little while now, but it usually starts up after a couple times and now it wont at all. I tried resetting the cmos, but that didnt work either. Bad power supply maybe?

    Best Socket478 Overclocking Mobo?

    Water cooling makes a big difference. He's using air. Have you used your Epox board on air with those?

    What Are My Options For An Abit Is7

    If you wanna get the 3.0, make sure its the 3.0C and that the stepping is SL6WK. That stepping is the good oc'er you've heard about.

    Best Socket478 Overclocking Mobo?

    the abit max's i've heard are great, as well as dfi's. the xp-90 or xp-120 and a decent fan would be a better combo for cooling also.

    Best Socket478 Overclocking Mobo?

    the problem with the p4c800 is voltage droop though, which is pretty bad. I think it's just your chip because that's exactly how high i had my 2.4C on an MSI board up until yesterday.

    Athlon Xp 2600+ Barton, Got Some ? Inside!

    Did you even read his entire post? He has it running at 178FSB. There's no way that even crappy RAM is unstable at that. flashystylez, just up the vcore one step at a time until your overclock becomes stable, then up the fsb probably 2 or 3 MHz at a time until it becomes unstable and repeat that a few times. At one point the temperatures may get too high, so make sure you watch that. I run my rig at 45C under full load. Some people like to run hotter though.

    The RAM is definitely NOT holding you back. It's pc3200, so it runs Stock at 200MHz.

    Can This Be Right?

    It's just the client is reading the protein wrong. It thinks that there's 2500 frames but there's only 100 frames in the p882.
