Good to see that you're alive and well Kryton.

And I know what you mean, so far this semester is the heaviest class load since I've gone back to school. Luckily the classes are somewhat easy, although my ethics class will more than likely prove to be the most challenging.

That and I've been working on a van that my folks bought (putting an engine cradle in it), and since its a Michigan car, a lot of stuff is rusted together and anything I touch turns in to rust powder.

How has your AM3 been serving you?

So far the AM3 has been great but believe I hosed the RAM with one of my insane OC attempts earlier. Doesn't clock nearly as well as it used to but at least I can still use it if I set my divider for the slowest RAM speed - Then again it could be something else wrong since I can even game with it and does so with no problem as long as I have it set they way I described.

I wonder if the IMC was damaged. Supposedly these new AM3 chips don't take so well to high volts.
Well, I suppose you could always buy some inexpensive RAM for testing and see if it takes care of the issue, or verify possible CPU damage.

Thread Starter 


I just realized that I owe everyone an ANNOUNCEMENT.

It is my great pleasure to let everyone know that we have three new Club Officers: BlackOmega, Hueristic, and N2Gaming are our new Club Officers. They take the place of Blitz6804, GuardianOdin, and pioneerisloud, all of whom thlnk3r and I thank profusely for all the help they've given us in their time in service as the Club's officers.

It's thlnk3r's and my intention that S939 Club Officers serve on a rotational basis. By this I mean that these appointments are not "for life," per se, but are meant to be offered to S939 Club members who demonstrate a love for our Club, a willingness to share whatever they can to the group, and help thlnk3r and I so much (especially behind the scenes) in administrating such a large group of OCNers. We actually asked more than just the three new officers if they would like to do us the favor of being a Club officer, but were turned down due to competing priorities.

Nevertheless, I'm proud and happy to welcome our three new officers, as well as very very grateful for the three previous officers who are being rotated out.

Thank you so much, everyone. Officer or not (old or new), it is this group's membership which makes it what it is.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I think ours is the BEST OCN Club, bar none!

Keep it up, everyone! And give yourselves a hand!

p.s. I'll make the necessary revisions to this thread's first post imminently, when I can squeeze out the time for it.

Hi all, I have not been around to much lately either. switched from Comspast to AT&T DSL. So far all is good. I think my upload spd's will be a bit slower now at 512 but should not notice much of a difference w/downloads.

I have a question.

I had a stable overclock @ 240 mhz 10x multi 4xhtt and auto ram (so it clocked to 240 i think) on my 3800x2.

i got a 8600Gts but had previously turned the clock down to 220mhz because of heat index and my stock cooling. When temps were right i put it back to 240 but got bsod after bsod durring games and heavy resource programs.

I do have some no name powersupply that i got out of a case. The case was made by E-Power so i assume it is one of their power supplies. The cables were sleaved and had decent amps on paper so i am using it until i get another.

But with the new power draw from my graphics card do you think it is possible that the computer is bsod due to insufficient/Voltage way off? Or something else?

Sorry bro. I had issues w/my internet-cable so I made a switch hopefully for the better.

Congrats to the new officers and best wishes to the retired officers.

Thank you textmstrjoe & Thlnk3r I'll do my best.

That is always possible. Having a good clean strong power supply is in my book my first priority when building a system. To many things can go wrong when using week inferior power supplies one of which is killing your whole system. Let's hope that none of us suffer that fate w/our prescious 939's.

If you have a volt meter (DMM) you can test your 3/5/12v rails to determine if you do have a power supply issue.

Good Luck,

N2
