There is no way to know if the rest of your parts are toast. A pc won't boot with a functioning cpu, ram, or video card so if any of them is pooched, you will have a problem diagnosing. Hopefully only the board was damaged.

Mine does....

I meant malfunctuning but thanks for pointing out my typo.


Also, I consider booting and posting to be the same (hence the term booting up your computer). If the cpu/ram/gpu are fried (any combo), the power supply may fire up and some fans may spin but that will definitely not be a boot or a post.

OK

Assuming the other parts are fine I'm going ahead with another build later this week. One thing:

After taking off the Tuniq tower I had to Indian leg wrestle the back plate that attaches to the motherboard to get it off....the X-frame that adheres using the doublesided tape. Can i get this tape just anywhere? Is it a 'special type' of tape? or is it one of those things that you have to scavenge for?

You can double-sided tape at any local hardware store

That's what I thought. Thought I'd check cause I'm just tired of being a retard this week.

Just wondering Robilar, do you think i bought the wrong type of ram. The e6420 is a 1066 chip whereas i got 800mhz pc6400 ram. Even if i manage to overclock the ram to 900mhz will ram of 1066mhz beat it?

Just getting a little worried as my friend said to me why didn't you buy 1066mhz ram?

thanks for your reply on the load temps. I have my ram at 800mhz at the moment i have been trying to see if i can hit 900mhz with 3.2ghz. Any mathematical calculations to make it easier or it is just guess work?

Also, bear in mind, the higher you overclock your memory, the looser the settings needed to make it run stable. You will not get 4-4-4-8 timings with 1066 memory speed!
So, teach the noob here What I'm gathering is in order to get tight timings like 4-4-4-8 1T like yours, you had to downclock the OCZ PC2-8500, right, to maybe 800MHz? And 4-4-4-8 1T @800 performs better than 5-5-5-15 2T overclocked to above 1066?

Thanks.

You don't have to downclock it. It runs auto at 800 Mhz with the supported potential to run at up to 1066. I've run it at 5-5-5-15 2T @ 1066 and where I currently run it 4-4-4-8 1T @ 800 Mhz and in all benches the 1T and tighter timings make a signifigant difference.

First, 800 mhz at 1T and right timings is better than 1066 mhz (or whatever and loose timings). That said you can experiment but if you can run 4-4-4-12 (or 10) @ 1T @ 800 Mhz with this ram, it will be very fast. Make sure you are unlinked and push your cpu as it will give you the most benefits.

So once I get my new stuff you recommend tight timings with T1 over linking and syncing with my CPU clock?
