    Memtest OK, Other Apps - Errors

    Contacted OCZ and they gave me some instructions for getting the RAM to perform correctly. Turns out the RAM needed 0.2v less than advertised and needed to be run at tighter speeds Been stable in both Prime and SuperPi for over a hour now, superb!

    Is computer gaming is expensive?

    Just to get this out of the way: Sure as hell a three year old Radeon or Nvidia card will play HL2, thats all good and well. But once you've played the said the games with the likes of a 7800GTX or a x800xl you realise how much different the game looks and plays. So really who cares...

    Asus A8N-SLI w/ X2 VCore Bug Confirmed. . .

    This is seriously getting on my nerves. Just swapped froma DFI Ultra-D to the Premium as I needed the extra SATA slots. Now only will the Silicon RAID not allow a single JBOD, I have now found that I am not able to overclock the X2 4400+ to the previous 2.4ghz that I was running on the DFI...

    Stacker Owners, Need Opinions

    Just recived the Stacker today, and I have already replaced the three front HDD 4in3s fans with Akasa Amber, same to the lone rear 120mm. The top 80mm has been replaced with a 80mm Akasa Amber. Now how many people have used the bottom PSU dual 80mm metal plate to install 2 x 80mm fans...

    Wondering how good Serial ATA Controller Cards are as I'm currenlty using all my SATA mobo ports and I'm using 3/4 IDE connections, compared to a mobo based one? Considering getting at least a 2 port card to put in the DFI Ultra-D.

    I'm currenlty using 1 x 120mm Akasa Amber front and same for rear. Now the upper HDD cage is currently not in use so I took it out and have fitted a internal 120mm Akasa Amber via a Zalman fan bracket cooling the upper right motherboard area. Now it seem that I will have to install the...

    Worth buying CAS2 over CAS3

    Worth buying CAS2 over CAS3

    Had a quick play, and upped to 2.8v and test 5 on memtest got a lot of errors, rebooted with 3.0v and the errors went shitspare!. Tried 2.5v and ran stable so far @ 220mhz 3-3-3-8 So it's seems it hates voltage :eek:

    Worth buying CAS2 over CAS3

    Im sure I could increase it if I were to slacken the 3-4-4-8 timing, but thats just not worth the hassle on thoose kind of timings.

    Worth buying CAS2 over CAS3

    I took the gamble with the Crucial RAM and it wont manage anything more than 3-3-3-8 @ 200mhz, tried everything. So would it be worth buying some CAS2 RAM along the lines of OCZ Platinum, Mushkin or Patriot, over the CAS3 that this will run? Not really looking to overclock as I had the...

    X2 4400+ and 1t timing problem

    Tried the 510-3fix last night and it failed nearly straight away too. Been reading your posts on the 2x1024 Crucial Value, and here in the UK there selling @ £150 ( around th $260 mark ) so might sell the G.Skill for £180 and go for 2gb as I play a lot of BF2 and do a lot of photo/video...

    X2 4400+ and 1t timing problem

    Right new day and all. Dusted off some old OCZ Premier 512MB DDR400 PC3200 CL 2.5-3-3-7 With Heatspreader 2 x 512mb and it's now been stable at these settings 1t for the last hour+, something the G.Skill wouldn't do for 10min. Whats going on?

    X2 4400+ and 1t timing problem

    Fails again after about 10min of Prime95, both cores not just the one. Might be a sign to quit the 1gb and go for a 2 x 1gb setup as this G.SKill LA is having these problems @1t with the X2.
