Tides Posted October 16, 2004 Posted October 16, 2004 Hey everyone, Just purchased a UT 250gb last week and I've got a question. I had my FSB up to 240 with my gig of Kingston BH-5 @ 1:1 3.1v and I was playing a game when all of a sudden a bluescreen pops up and this whistling sound starts to get louder and louder (not a fan, an electric sound) and stays loud until I turn off the machine. Touched the ram and it was warmish to hot. Then I put on another fan (zalman arm with 92mm fan) placed right over the ram (also a 120mm fan blowing on it from behind the HD's). Which cooled down memory temps pretty well, the memory would still get warm, but not hot like it did before; I also spread the memory apart from 1/2 to 1/3 for better heat disappation. Now, anytime after that loading up windows took longer (from 1-2 bars to 3-4 bars) and I started to play that game again. Again, I got a blue screen and a loud whistling sound so I quickly turned off the power and checked the ram again and it was just warm. Lowered the voltage a bit then after loading up it took from 3-4 bars to 5-6 bars (the windows loading bar process). I got some errors then in the game too @ 220 so I decided to go stock until I figured out what was going on. Which leaves me where I am now, I sometimes get some errors in War3 (fatal crashes) or in prime95 but I haven't seen any errors in memtest3.1... Hardware I'm using: 2800+ amd64 (cg core) ut 250gb 1gb kingston bh-5 hyperx evga 5900se (beta drivers) audigy 2zs raptor 74gb sata drive 38gb maxtor ide drive 380w antec truepower psu (1 fan version) Any help or ideas would be great, thanks.
