Stuttering continues!!

Recommended Posts

No need to be an arse about it , you have no idea what crap im having to go through to get this sorted, its stressing me out! :mad:

 

So i forgot to put my psu in , im on many other forums ive had to remove bits of info because the sig is too big cant remember everything :mad:

 

ANYWAY its done!

 

So are those amps crap?

 

EDIT :: Too many forums i need to find out what psu ive actually got that review was of the 530 watt+ !

 

GRRR

In my opinion the thing that makes DFI-Street a great support forum over other forums is the iron hand rules. The signature rule is one of the best ideas in a PC support forum I have ever come across.

 

It gives the other members the necessary info too help you trouble shoot your issues with out asking what components are in your rig. Because of the signature most problems can be resolved very quickly.

Here we go..

 

:mad: :mad: :mad:

 

- Correct psu volts -

+5V - 36A

+12V1 - 20A

+12V2 - 18A

-12V - 0.8A

+5VSB - 2.5A

+3.3V - 0.4A/30A

 

 

-

IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT POWER SUPPLY MEANT TO RUN AN ATHLON 64 SYSTEM HAVE AT LEAST 24A ON THE +12 VOLT, BUT 30A IS IDEAL IF YOU PLAN TO OVERCLOCK. This may seem a bit steep to some, but bear in mind that a healthy unit will ensure that your computer is not victim to common power-starved symptons such as stuttering, hitching, and random reboots (these will be especially pronounced in games).

:D

The PSU's in the recommended list are known to work the best with DFI motherboards.

 

My suggestion is;

1. Test stability as I previously posted.

2. Testing Your PSU Voltage Rails.

Your power supply may not be on the recommended list but it can handle your pc load.

 

Post your memory settings here (DO NOT TRY THE SETTINGS I HAVE JUST POSTED)

Make sure that all 4 power connectors are plugged into the board

# 24pin ATX connector.

# 4pin +12v P4 connector, near the ATX connector.

# Floppy power connector, under the CPU socket.

# Hard drive power connector, on top the chipset fan.

Plug your GFX card in the PCIe slot

# Make sure it is inserted correctly into the slot.

# Connect any power cables to it if one is required.

 

Clear your CMOS for 10 minutes

# Remove the power cord from the back of the power supply.

# Move the CMOS jumper to the clear position and leave it there for 10mins.

# Make sure you move it back to the save position after.

Insert the memory into the Orange slots

Change these to AUTO,

Well it booted and it went past irq listing into memtest...

 

But wow

 

500 errors every 2secs :eek:

 

Edit : what is causing this? faulty psu? faulty motherboard? faulty mem controller on the cpu?

Ok now we are getting some where.

 

You need to carefully adjust more settings.

 

These 2 settings are very important, using Auto may not work all the time.

Max Async Latency....................

Read Preamble Time...................

 

So at this stage, try a few different combinations.

 

eg,

 

7ns

5ns

 

6ns

6ns

 

7ns

6ns

 

 

If all are no good, put them back to Auto and adjust something else.

Increase CPU vcore slightly

I'm off now so see you later.

Laterz buddy..

 

Just a quick question why are settings working perfectly fine memtest wise and going into windows in yellow slots, but completely failing over 220mhz in orange slots? :|
