Alright. I recently built a brand new system
and I've run into SEVERAL problems. I've tried all sorts of things to fix these, but to no avail. I'll just list them right here, if anyone can help me out.
1. e8400 REFUSES to OC to 3.6ghz, no matter how many voltages or tricks I attempt. Everything I try is usually stable for around 1 minute and 10 or so seconds of booting into XP and running CPU-Z and Orthos, then the system locks up.
2. My GSKILL ram timings are REALLY strange. I have the timings MANUALLY set in my bios to 5-5-5-15, like they're supposed to be. However, within around a minute of booting into XP, the tRAS switches itself to 31, leaving me at 5-5-5-31 timing on my ram. I sometimes see them switch to 7-7-7-31 as well... ????? I've ran memtest86 with no errors.
3. I tried running 3DMark06 to get some benchmarks. All of the tests run perfect EXCEPT the CPU tests. As soon as the CPU tests load, my FPS drops to around 2 and things move VERY sluggish.Edited by Shifty - 12/31/08 at 1:17pm
