post #171 of 12349
I've been building my dream machine in my head for about 3 years now. I help'd my buddy in Toronto put his together and then I had to settle for a skt 939 and a low end mobo. Soon I was able to go cheap for a64, my last build. But them everything changed and I didn't have to settle for 2nd, or even 3rd, best. I turn'd 50 in July and got a $1k for my present from the few family members that I talk to or talk to me. I even think one put in under a 100 and we haven't talk'd in over 5 years...but I digress.

So there I was, knowing what parts I want'd and then ordering a few online. Then to be told that the mobo I want'd for over 2 years wasn't available and was back order'd (m2r32-mvp crossfire 3200). I have only had ati cards for my past four builds and did light reading about nvidia cards, after all, I need'd to know little about them cause I was going ati. F@!!$%$%&*^%%^ they weren't to be had here or Toronto. So I had to SCRAMBLE to find what I could get and afford. I spent 6 days, all day long, in this and a few other forums researching nvidia/asus combos. And just before my bday I got the m2n-sli board, then got my present. I haven't added it all up yet (a bit afraid I guess) but the lcd is about 1/4 the cost.

Now I got an UPTODATE system that only really needs a quad in a year or better. Or by then I'll have some work happening and can get a good deal on a phenom and mobo. That is for the faaaaar far future.

Now back at you. The first thing I thought was how BIG was your computer desk to fit that 40incher...them my ram started to work right. My roommate knows all about hooking up his tv to his comp but I never tried cause I watch vids on my monitor here and didn't need to know just yet, oh I could figure it out but...

As to volts; my 5k has 1.488 to it and my ram is stock. Some things I will do w/out knowing all about them I will but ram is not one of them. I got 16 pages to print out for ocing from the sites faqs but I went the easy way this time. Not really easy but I still can't figure out why it worked now and not before (the 16 multi) but one of the constants all these past 3 years is the 5000+ Black Edition. I knew that I could count on it, and I was sorta right.

For the ram I don't/can't find any info on any of my oc'ing apps but it was not fiddled with. I think that I can lower my vcore somewhat but I was so happy that occt passed that I hate to fiddle right now. So I am stable at 3.2 and liking it enough to get back to my music sites and spend alot of time dling. Or even burning the 80+ folders ready for the dvds.

I am trying hard to be moved out by the end of this month to my own place. Somewhere where my entertainment, living room, is separate from my bedroom. I have been to long in just going the cheap route and renting rooms for the past 5 years and enough is enough. Turning 50 changed me more than just the number and it hurts my head.

This newness will pass and I'll be more adventurous with life and overclocking soon enough. But for now I think I wrote more just now than in the past 2 weeks so I'll shutup.

40" tv is in the living room. It drove my girlfriend crazy so I gave up mostly due to her B****ing. as far as your votages, you're probably better off setting em manually in the bios when you get a chance to play around inside the bios. Overclocking with software is a good place to start if you want to get an idea of your systems potential over clock. However I believe voltages should be set to a manual or static setting in your bios not left on auto. This will help eliminate voltage fluctuations when pushing the limits while over clocking. One more thing to consider is knowing how to check your power supply with a cheap digital multy meter for consistent power so you know you won't have issues related to power supply. I don't think you have to worry about power supply though that is usually when your system starts rebooting from insufficient power. In any case the more you know the better off you are. Do you know the model # of your ram modules or better yet the max rated voltage the value select kingston ram is designed to handle? this is one of those critical settings made with in bios. Easy tip to remember. If you have not made any bios changes from the time you build this pc then you dont have to worry to much about making small changes to ram settings. if the system don't boot from the bios changes then you can always clear cmos and you should be right back where you started. That's if your overclock is software related and not bios related. Oh before I forget congradulations on your 50th. Happy Birth day man!!! cheers with rootbeers. If I gave you to much info that you already understand then just consider it practice for me.

well you did have just a bit of practice. I know alot about quite a few things, a little bit of alot of other ****. computers I know where to say stop and when I do go I know it won't hurt too much. My oc's are from the bios and I saved (I think!?!?) this one as profile #1. I had better check it out. About the Kingston, I am not too worried about ocing them as they are a value brand. When I got a few extra, the month I move, then I'll go and get me some muskins as all that I have read about ram they are pretty good stick.

On my 939 I tried my hand at software oc's and it didn't go to well. clockgen didn't know my mobo (a8v-vm) and even little changes got me reboots. And all that I have read and found out tells me that sw ocing is just to get a person started and not the whole picture. I did deep reading in my bios and although I don't understand all that is to this mobo I know enough too figure out what I need to know. I tell it like this, with things computers I can add 1+1 and get 2.1. That little bit extra to see past what you know and further on and on...etc. It has worked for me these past 14 years since my first 286. Now to get some schooling and I can open, legally, my own repair shop/cafe and maybe host some games.

Hi there! I've been having problems recently with my ASUS. I recently bought an opteron 1222, new hard disks and a 4870. I installed everything, but it started to crash a lot, then I changed to default the EPP option in bios, but it still crashed again, so I replace my memories with corsair XMS2 DHX CL4, but did not change latencies and voltage in bios. Now is running fine I think, but I can't run outlook, I don't know what to do. Should I reinstall everything again? I hope you can help with my problem

ok did the service pack 3 come with your version of xp or did you have to install it seperately. some people experiance problems after installing service pack 3. one thing you could try is to click on start button inside windows, all programs, accessories, system tools, and system restore to a date before you started encountering this problem. that wont undue problems w/service pack 3 but if something else has gone a rye then it's worth a shot before reinstalling everything. Of course you could always try uninstalling outlook and reinstalling it. I'm not familiar with am2 opterons or if there is a specific bios that is required. hope this helps.

I don't think I want to be lugging this build around to partys, or even the to the next room. It is HEAVY just to lift off my desk. hehe

I do play Farcry and want wait until I get my greedy hands on v2. I have one 15Gig partition dedicated to just games. Sadly, there are less of them installed now. I just had to make room for my tunes. Flac files take up ALOT of space. I did a rough count last night of my 2_burn folders; over 700GIGs of files. I am glad that I got this last 500g drive and if worst comes to worst I can alway put my older 400g back in. But I wonder it 1.5TB's are enough for me

Hi otaku,

What happens when you do try to run Outlook? Describe what takes place when you do try to run it? And error messages? Does your cursor do the hour glass thingy and nothing else happes?

One suggestion is to use Mozilla products. I have been a happy Thunderbird user for over 5 years now and am quite happy with how it works. Firefox for over 7 years now.

I know what you mean, systems can get pretty heavy with good p/s, 2x vga, multiple hdd's, big cpu coolers, multiple case fans etc, etc. I originally purchased my dfi board for that specific use. It came with a dandy little cary case. the price we pay for fun. hey G-Byte how do you add someones quote to your replies? I copy and past only way I know how. I see the quote button but dont know how to use it.
