Most reviews I'd read talked about a short lifespan of the Enermax Liberty 620W PSU
This morning in the middle of playing World Of Warcraft it popped. Smelled the wonderful smell of fried electronics.
Wouldn't even think about powering back up.
Logged into newegg's website and was JUST...
I have a laptop that currently is using a 120GB Seagate Ultra ATA-100 drive.
I want to replace it with a 7200RPM drive. Newegg lists most of the drives with ATA-6 and only a 80GB as Ultra ATA-100.
Can I buy the ATA-6 drive will it work?
FWIW the laptop is a Acer Ferrari 4006Wlmi Turion ML-40.

So far I pushed my G.Skill FX's to 320mhz (DDR640). IMO not bad for a kit sold/rated as DDR400.
Albeit I did this at 3-4-4-8 I might be able to tighten that up or go higher or both I ram out of time to mess with things. I just had done a quick and dirty ram OC one morning.
What would be a...
First the bridge. I'm going to assume it doesn't matter which way it's installed.
Second my directions said I had to hook the monitor to the second card but when I tried that the monitor never turned on. It only turned on when hooked to the first card were my directions just mis-printed from xfx?
What does everyone use?
Since I'm using the free version I'm limited to the default setup but if I want to compare my numbers I'm curious what everyones settings are resolution wise and all.
for the record my first bench scored 8192 on 3dmark2005 with the free version and ONE of my GTX's...
Tried Eclipses guide this time and step by step till I found the max on my 165
Nevermind the temps my 165's temps aren't super accurate. it can report 43C and I can touch my fingers to it without getting burned.
cooled by Thermaltake Big Typhoon.
Also note this is before I found the max on my...
Going through and trying to properly overclock my Opty 165 via Eclipses method I found my max HTT link to be around 340
This is an Epox 9NPA+Ultra
Just wondering what some other people have hit as their max HTT.
I setup F@H based on the instructions from hardfolding.com
the console is setup to run as a service.
I see it in my services tab under task manager but it is not using any CPU power currently. It's just sitting there. How can I tell if I've got it running?
It's going to be a storage drive on my network.
It won't see any regular use aside from just sitting there holding hard drives. I already have 2 dual core machines for my day to day tasks.
The machine so far consists of
ECS KN1 Motherboard(hand me down from my X2 the X2 is...
My buddy has a chip he's thinking about OCing to do some gaming with but His mobo has him limited to zero overclocking abilities.
So before he buys a new mobo he was curious what the potential is
It's a S754 A64 2800+ Clawhammer core chip. I don't have info on stepping and batch just 2800+...
For use in my P-180.
Needs to control 2 120mm San Ace fans and a few others.
Must support 4 pin Molex.
I'd like support for 4 fans minimum of 2.
Price isn't much of a concern so much as quality and reliability also style and looks will factor into it.
If I can keep it under $75 I'd be...
On my x2 rig when I try running it overclocked it'll just randomly shut down.
Usually it happens under load specifcally while ripping DVD's
X2 4400+ 1.40Vcore when OC'd otherwise runs around 1.28
ECS KN1 Exteme NF4 Ultra Mobo
Overclocked setting is 2.4Ghz(218FSB)
G.Skill Extreme Series ZX...
2GB G.Skill ZX
I'm just wondering if anyone has been able to figure out what G.Skill is using. The G.Skill tech on XS just says he's not allowed to say who's IC they're using due to some contractual agreement.
so I'm looking into building a file server.
I'd like to run 6 320GB HDD's in a Raid 5.
I can only find one card that'll do 6 SATA 150 drives.
First it's pricey but if that's what I need to buy then so be it.
I've got some g.Skill TCCD ram in my Opteron which is my overclocked machine.
I'm wondering what woul be expected/good timings for TCCD at 227mhz right now I've got it at 2.5-3-3-5 but I was thinking that TCCD should be able to hold tighter.
Running X2 4400(overclocking)
and a vareity of case fans.
My current PSU is fine at stock speeds but when I try overclocking it overloads and clicks off under load. (verified PSU is the weak point by reducing the load on it and then OCing)
I'm looking at
the CPU temps on my opteron seemed High when I had it in a garbage case and on the stock HSF.
I don't have many 939's to compare it so heres what I'm basing my guess on.
My X2 4400 runs 28C idle and maxes 42C load and they're in the same room the X2 is in a Thermaltake Armor
turns out Core 0 is stable so far up to 2.6Ghz but core 1 fails even at 2.4ghz on my Opteron 165.
I've tried extra voltage and that doesn't affect it in any fashion even up to 1.55v.
So right now I'm running cpu burn v1.01 on core 1
Anyone know the download link for K7 CPU burn?
Right now my opteron is in a Aero Cool Magic 3d SV case. And because of the delta fans I'm running it's unbearably loud. It's like being in a loud server room.
I'm thinking about buying a P-180 and seeing if I can use the same fans but quiet things down a bit. So I'm wondering just how quiet...
My buddy has a MSI S754 VIA chipset(doesn't know which one) board he thinks it says NEO 2 or 3 but he's not sure.
He was going to try overclocking his clawhammer chip but he can't get it allow him to change the HT speed or anything. When he goes into the features you'd normally adjust for...
so I built the following
Opteron 165 (1.40V)
2 x 512MB G.Skill TCCD ram (2.7V)
Epox 9NPA+Ultra with 10-21 bios.
Antec TPII 430W PSU
1 Maxtor SATA HDD
got it built and after much trouble with the bios not holding the stock CPU frequency I got the bios stable.
I'm having the following...
I have a X2 4400+
I had it stock with my memory at 201mhz CL 2-3-2-5
Temps Idle 26-28C Load(dual prime) 42-43C
Now with an OC I'm running
2.4Ghz CPU with memory at 218Mhz CL 2.5-3-2-5 Still at the stock x5 HTT multiplier
so I had to drop from cas 2 to cas 2.5 to run at...
Been an expensive week
Plan is 2.4~2.5 on the X2 and 2.5~2.6 on the opteron.
in the next 2 pics you can see the extra care given to the opteron with the smoothing of the endges and the surface of the cap feels slightly smoother and you can see the residue on it from testing.
I purchased a Used X2 4400 and the seller doesn't believe he recieved a heatpipe cooler with his X2 4400 that I've purchased from him. It's a standard AMD fan/aluminium HSF.
I've owned a X24400 that I sold in sept. and mine came with the heatpipe cooler.
I'd like to find out here if anyone...
I have a maxtor 7y250po (I think thats the number) 250GB maxline II PATA drive. Everytime I try to transfer large files onto it I get this delayed write failure error and sometimes it even locks up my PC. Anyone know whats causing the problem?
Should I just replace the drive?
