My first Phantom "mod"

So one of the features of the MVE is the ROG Probelt. It allows you to detect your system's current voltage and OC settings with a multimeter. Before I had this case I was just running everything on boxes and had the multimeter connected the whole time. Now that I have everything in the case it restricts my use of the multimeter because I would need to take off the side panel to use it. So I came up with an idea to use a grinder to grind down some of the plastic on one of the inserts on the 5.25" bay panels. Lucky for me the front door still closes completely allowing me to use the multimeter outside of the case with the door shut. I know this isn't a special mod or anything, but it is my first and I am damn proud of it biggrin.gif






The multimeter is a Fluke 75 and I love it. Great DMM.

Hd7000 Works very well with water however.

So you are still just running the boost BIOS's on your 7950's? You haven't messed with them at all?

Because these chips have an IMC in them (Integrated memory controller) and I'm guessing you either nicked that part of the PCB or bent the pins in your socket. So you probably killed your dual-channel memory. I did the same thing to my first chip so I ended up having to run one stick in A2 and another stick in B2 until I got a new chip. Some people can only run one stick though so you just have to test. Try one stick in the slot farthest from the CPU and then if it boots try another stick in the one directly next to it. Sorry to hear that mad.gif

I wouldn't expect that to cause any problem though. I looked over it once before installing it again but I don't remember seeing anything abnormal, everything looked alright to me. I might take it out again for another inspection.

Considering this post I'm guessing that you bent a pin (or a couple pins) in the socket of your motherboard. Take a flashlight and look into the socket looking for anything that looks out of place. Do you have a debug on your motherboard? What code is it reading?

I've checked for bent pins, and they all looked in line to me. Just now I've had the CPU out again and looked over it twice with a magnifying glass, I couldn't find any damage. Right now I'm going to have a look over the pins again, and if they are still in line I'll put it back together and try resetting the BIOS again. Then if the problem still exists I'll see if there's a new BIOS update, I'm currently running F16.

If I can't fix the problem then I'll just have to live with single channel frown.gif

EDIT: I've just discovered that two pins right at the bottom of the socket appear to be grey rather than gold/brass colour, so they could have some TIM on them.

There is no Bios u can flash over a Boost bios to fully unlock voltage control ive tried over 40.

I was overly careful when delidding both my chip, so I took my time. During that time my hands would tend to sweat, therefore wearing gloves makes perfect sense to be able to handle the chip without having to worry about it or have to clean it all off later. You are correct that my post was incomplete, I used the gloves to avoid sweat/dirt/oil transfer and an anti static wristband (that came with my handy dandy computer builder tool kit) to avoid static. I also made sure to touch something metal a few times to make sure and I did it on a nonconductive surface.

That is very possible. I would wait until someone gives you an idea of how to remove it before attempting to. Maybe if you run something small, sharp, and metal over them it will slide off. It doesn't matter if there is a little TIM in your socket as long as it doesn't affect your contact with the pins.

Haha yea I figured I tried a couple myself and I got no where quick. I hate that they made these boost cards like that, but at the same time I love these boost cards.

Well then, looks like everything is working now, I've just booted up with my RAM in dual channel wheee.gif I'm guessing it was either a BIOS issue, because I reset the BIOS again with both sticks in position this time, or TIM on those two pins.

Now to get my BIOS settings back in order and OC again tongue.gif Then post my delid pic thumb.gif

Sounds good! I was just about to reply to you in the other thread I am glad you got it sorted! still going on 100% (unless its a mobo problem) frown.gif
