That's fraud.

veblen, if you can't get it to work, you cuold try talking with EVGA and nicely tell them how you where plugging in your drive and the connector broke. They may not completely honor your RMA, but you may be able to get them to fix it for you for pretty cheap.



BTW, 1066A.D. FTW

Thanks for all the quick responses! I think I pulled the connector clean off, i.e. the little L-shaped thing that used to be in the motherboard's sata port is stuck in my sata cable. I took a look at the pins and they don't seem to be touching each other. Unfortunately, it's still stuck at the FF code. I will keep trying with just the cpu, heatsink and one stick of ram.

That's the first thing I did. And I've been doing it repeatedly since. Still no luck...I'll remove everything, reseat the cpu/heatsink, and test it again tomorrow. I've spent the last 4 hours trying to fix my foolish mistake...can't believe I killed my motherboard.

Should I cover the exposed pins with electrical tape?

Can anyone tell me where I can read the actual Northbridge temps. I am running the latest version of everest and I think I should be looking at the SPP temp but it never seems to change much between 51 idle and 54 load. I have a 60mm fan on the nb blowing up heatsink but I am stressing at 1.55v on the NB. I think that 51-54c is a little low for a NV chipset at max voltage??

you would think but for most of us here, myself included, mid to low 50's seems to be where the spp runs with high volts. my spp has been running 1.45v for almost a year and i have had zero problems and my temp is always ~54*C

I run the SPP at 1.55v all the time with a 60mm fan. Temps never go above 48C full load. idles around 42C. I guess I got lucky with mine.

I'm back again trying to OC this dang CPU to 4ghz.

Here's what I've done so far:

Quote:
Test 1

Failed Core 2

Adjusted GTL ref Core #2 to 60mv

Test 2

Froze

Adjujsted GTL ref Cores 1,3,4 to 15mv

Test 3

Froze

Adjujsted GTL ref Cores 1,3,4 to 20mv

Test 4

Failed Core 2

Adjusted GTL ref Core #2 to 70mv

Test 5

Froze

Adjujsted GTL ref Cores 1,3,4 to 35mv

Test 6

Froze

Adjujsted GTL ref Cores 1,3,4 to 40mv

Test 7

Froze

Adjusted GTL ref Core #2 to 65mv

Test 8

Failed Core 1

Adjust GTL ref Core 1 to 45mv

Test 9

Failed Core 2

Adjust CPU vcore to 1.36875
All this to P95 blend test. My other settings are:

CPU vcore: 1.3625
FSB: 1780 QDR, 445mhz
FSB voltage: 1.30
nForce SPP: 1.45
nf200: 1.4

Ram frequency: 890 mhz
Ram voltage: 1.9
Timings: 6-6-6-18 2T

Still testing, pointers would be helpful.

First of all you can't just randomly change GTLs and hope it will make your system stable. Check out the link in my sig for adjusting GTL. It will take you a while, but it's very rewarding if done right.

Another suggestion, is to lower your CPU multi and see if you can make sure the board is stable. A lot of ppl have gotten good results with 1800QDR.

Run your GTL tests with a stable OC!

Anybody know what the temp in HWmonitor is for that reads about 80'c.
I have a feeling it cant be right but id rather be safe than sorry.
