Serious Troubles....

Recommended Posts

okay, i thought i was stable, im not... not at all.

 

i get sudden restarts, no BSOD, just restarts. i have tried every setting in the OCDB that has an opty 165 and TCCD... all a no-go. i think i may know the problem, but would it happen at 290x9 at stock volts (im referring to PSU, i hear its a beast)? the PSU fan doesn't put out warm air like its struggling, not even full bore with orthos, or 3dmark06... but this is still a possibility right? it doesn't happen under load, as a matter of fact, just the opposite. anyhow, im wondering if there is one setting im missing in the sea of options that will help. ive been reading and toying with this since Christmas... school starts back the 3rd and im afraid i wont have as much time. thanks for any suggestions you can give, you all have allways been helpful.

 

Charlie.

ok, i will list the entire genie bios settings page for the sake of completeness :D

_______________________

(genie bios settings)

FSB = 300

LDT ratio = auto

LDT transfer = 16/16

cpu multi = 9 (default)

PCIe = 100Mhz

CnQ = disabled

cpu startup value 1.4v

 

(current voltages reported by bios monitering)

 

cpu= 1.38v

ldt= 1.2v

chipset= 1.62v

ram= 3.04v

 

(Genie bios setting cont.)

 

cpu vid= 1.4v

ldt= 1.2v

chipset= 1.6v

ram= 3v (tccd, have to have this to get into windows no matter the speed)

 

(dram timings page)

 

dram frequency= 166 dividor

cpc= enable

tcl= 2.5

trcd= 3

tras=7

trp=3

trc=12

trfc=14

trrd=3

twr=3

twtr=2

trwt=2

tref=3120

bank interleve= on

 

dqs skew= auto

skew value= 0

dram drive= auto

dram data drive= auto

max asinc latency= 8ns

dram responce= normal

read preamble= 6ns

idle cycle limit= 256

dynamic counter= off

r/w wueue bypass= 16x

bypass max= 07x

32byte granularity= disable

--------------------------

 

how does that look? i still cant quite grasp the purpose of each ram timing, but i have an idea of what they should possibly be set to. im out of ideas... but still very pleased with this rig :D. thanks for your help!

You are giving the ram too much voltage. I have the same ram on my second machine and 2.7V is more than enough for the 4400le's. Anything over 2.8V is gonna start giving you errors.

 

Do this - You need to test the memory for errors before you start doing anything else.

 

FSB = 270

LDT ratio = 3x

LDT transfer = 16/16

cpu multi = 9

PCIe = 101Mhz

CnQ = disabled

cpu startup value 1.4v

 

cpu= 1.35v (Set this manually in the dropdown)

ldt= 1.3v

chipset= 1.62v

ram= 2.7v

 

dram frequency= 200 (1:1) divider

cpc= enable

tcl= 2.5

trcd= 3

tras=7

trp=3

trc=9

trfc=16

trrd=3

twr=3

twtr=2

trwt=3

tref=auto

bank interleave= on

 

dqs skew= auto

skew value= 0

dram drive= auto

dram data drive= auto

max asinc latency= auto

dram responce= normal

read preamble= auto

idle cycle limit= auto

dynamic counter= auto

r/w wueue bypass= auto

bypass max= auto

32byte granularity= auto

 

Do all this and run memtest # 5 and # 8 from genie bios - at least 25 passes each and report here if you had any errors.

You're P.S.U is going dude! Same syptoms that you are describeing is exactly what happended when my Silverstone ST60F took a dump on me. Save yourself allot of aggrivation and get another unit!

 

Might I suggest PC-Power & Cooling 750w Silencer

ok, test 5 2 errors in 25 passes. test 8 0 errors in 82 passes (fell asleep :D).

 

i updated with your settings thraxz, going to loop the whole batch while im gone.

 

brother esau, i sure hope not, but i cant afford something as good as a psu like that!

 

will report back soon!

Top-end board + OC'd Opty and you've got a 450w PSU, thats a no-go tbh.

 

Its worked till now but, it isn't recommended and like Brother Esau says its probably dieing from the load - get a PSU from the recommended list that is suited your system.
