Angry, I just tried to install xp64sg.zip and got the following error message. The following files did not self-register or unregister: 1.c:windowssystem32oleaut32.dll is not a valid win32 application. I hit continue anyway just to check. The cpu and system temps were switched.

I uninstalled smart guardian and tried to run Registry Mechanic and got this message "Cannot find import; dll may be missing, corrupt or wrong version file "msvbvm60dll" error 126. I'm not positive the Smart Guardian install had anything to do with it, but I use RM daily and have never had a problem.

Still it won't let me install Smart Guardian properly. Is it possible that i need to update to the newer AMD processor driver? Any Ideas?

 

Edit: It's more curiosity than anything. I've never used Smart Guardian, and don't really need to.

Same issue here...

I just switched from Xp 32bit to Xp 64bit... can you point me to all the 64bit drivers. System is unstable and I think it is due to driver support. Please help.

 

NF4 UT SLI-DR

Opteron 146

Enermax 651VE

SLI 2 x 6600GT

2 x Raptor 360 RAID0

 

Everytime I try prime, it will drop and reboot. Was fine with Xp 32 bit at 3.0... I have everything at default speed not. No o/c at all and still running into issues.

honestly I refuse to use Windows 64-bit because it is (in my honest opinion) a pile of crap and there's absolutely no need when everything runs perfect in 32-bit Windows.

 

However, because a lot of people wanted Smartguardian 64-bit, ITE put it out it looks like...but it also looks like it maybe doesn't work so well lol.

 

Dunno, ITE is not part of DFI so there's not much I can do other than alert the head nerds at DFI that the 64-bit Smartguardian that ITE gave us doesn't seem to work too well.

 

 

If anyone has had success with this release, please post in this thread so we know.

MBM5, Everest, and SysTool all work great.

I highly suggest MBM5 then as Carl (soundx98) has put a lot of time and effort into making it work very well with the DFI Lanparty series of motherboards, as well as I think customizing it a bit. It is a very popular program and has a lot of unofficial support in these forums ;)

Thanks for the kind words Travis :)

All credit to the author of MBM5, Alex Van Kaam, and all the members of DFI-street that posted questions and feedback. Big tip of the soundx98 hat to _xhp_ for his work on the nVidia video card readings.

 

You can still get the FREE Everest 2.20 at Major Geeks http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4181.html

 

Just finished testing a beta version of "Nextsensor" from Vitaliy Jungle http://cbid.amdclub.ru/ (the CBID guys) that is very nice and works in x64 as well.

I've suggested some changes for DFI LanParty boards and I am sure many will like it.

If given permission by VVJ I will post links and some comments in the MBM5 thread.

I've noticed speedfan works great in 64bit, you can configure it in the advanced options to either control the 3 fans (case, cpu and chipset) and it's compatible with smartguardian running at the same time. With either smartguardian 64bit smartguardian and through the bios you can use speedfan to overwrite the speeds on specific fans.

 

Sometimes i don't like how smartguardian controls my chipset fan, so i use speedfan and have it max the RPM's ~2600 which is 50% speed on the VC-RE to keep it inaudible and it peaks at 45C which works for me.

 

I like letting speedfan control the fan speeds, i set a max temp then it ramps up the fan accordingly, no complaints. Smartguardian is a lot easier for a lot less effort, speedfan is really awesome when tweaked, and some people report it reads temps and voltages more accurately off ITE chips.

well I really like the 64bit smart gaurdian.

 

except for one issue, I can't have my cpu fan pluged into the cpu fan header, cause when I turn it on, it idles, below 25C for some time, meaning no fan turns on.

 

so I got it on the PWIC fan. when using the 64bit smart gaurdian, on first launch, it would turn my cpu fan off (pwic area). it scared the .... outta meh, so I just manually changed it, luckily, my cpu survived it, and only added about 4c to idle, before I got the fan going again.

 

anyway, thanks for getting the link back up, really enjoying, my fan not reving up anymore like b4 when I had no control (speedfan would cause my x64 to BSOD).
