Mayhem Posted June 16, 2005 Posted June 16, 2005 Hello there Im a complete noob to DFI main bords but not a Noob to others and over clocking all though i am a cheap skate untill i got this New Nf4 SLI-Dr Mainbord. Right my system Specs are the following Asus Vento 3600 case AMD 64 3800 Newcastle with standard HFC DFI Lan Party - NF4 SLI-DR 2 x 512Mb DDR 400 Danelec (10 year warrenty) 2 x Gigabyte GF 6600 GT (GV-NX66T128D) Enermax Noisetaker 470W 2 x 75 Gig raptor 10000 RPM Windows XP Pro SP 1 Now to the problems i am haveing - 1) Seems like my ram sucks Big time Please could some one recommend 1 GB in 2 x 512mb sticks that does not cost me the earth and can be over clocked a little. 2) When playing the 6600 GTs in SLI mod i get constant crashes back to the windows desk top. Some times the games have just minamised. Allso they seem to get extremly Hot and the temps are well over 75-85c (quite bad i think). 3) to play the games i have to turn off SLI via the nvidia drivers and turn down the game settings to low to be able to play. I noticed the the Heat sinks on the GF 6600GT are rubbish and took them off and added artic siler after removeing the old paste that gigabyte has used. But there isnt realy a much of a temp drop. (any suggestions welcome) except spending loads. Would the GFX cards still work in SLI if i changed the HFC to these - http://www.arctic-cooling.com/vga2.php?idx=62 allso is there nay more recomandations for my set up . P.s I have dislexia so plz dont say my spelling sucks. Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
