Slightly confusing yes. My video card has the 7 pin HD connector into 3 RCA composits. I did not know the Newer HD video cards like my 9800GT's would work w/a analog tv. I may just need the proper S-Video type of connector. I tried using my dedicated S-Video cable at both the card and TV w/no other connections and the TV would not display video. I don't think it was a Nvidia setting either. sigh

Here you go. Oh and here is how my garage looked prior to putting the TV in there. I had to take the table saw off of the tool box that it's on in the first picture. Then remove the tool box seen in the first picture on the pool table and put it where the table saw was on the other tool box. I had to do all this to make room for the TV. I only spent a few hours making the tv stand. Most of the time was spent shuffling junk around in my garage to make room so I could get in there and do the work I needed to do to move the tool boxes etc etc.

OK guys after much research I have come to the conclusion that my 9800GT GPU's are not defecting. I have been trying to make my system hum for a couple of days now. Uh one of the biggest problems I was having on my bench w/the M2N32 SLI Deluxw was my ram timings. I discovered that I can run 1T command rate w/4 sticks of 1g installed. Here is the catch. I was running them at DDR400 Speeds and not knowing it. So I did a few bench marks and was like why the heck is my ram scoring so low of scores. I'm talking really slow in Everest Ultimate. like 5600 - 5700 score for ram and latencies of 75 wow I knew it was not right but I was muftified that I was able to run 4 sticks in sli mode w/1T command rate. Any way I finally figured out the ram problems and got it all dialed in again.

AMD no longer has the XP Duel core optimizer on their web sight. So it took me a while to find that. Once my os was working good, gpu drivers working good in SLI mode & Crysis " no artifacting Thank you god" duel core optimized for xp, and all my temps under controll I decided to run Crysis once again and this final time I was like why did I ever buy the Destroyer. Well I may just have to test the x4 940 BE in this benched mobo sooner then I anticipated.




My guess is one of the following was happening w/the Destroyer & 9800GT's/Crysis = artifacting.
  1. Bad OS upgrades
  2. Bad Drivers of some sort mobo etc etc.
  3. bad ram " ram test's pass w/flying colors "
  4. bad cpu.
So now I will have to test the X4 940 BE CPU next w/Crysis in the benched mobo M2N32 SLI Deluxe to make sure it's not the cpu. Once I know it was not the cpu I will then try the ram. If I don't get any problems will all of the hardware from my Destroyer once it's all installed into the M2N32 SLI Deluxe then I can only come to a couple of conclusions, either mobo issues, OS issues or Driver issues prolly mobo driver issues.

I'll keep you all posted.

Oh yeah I have been thinking about creating a fan of some sort prolly the Mosfet squiral cage fan to keep the SB cool. I'll let you all know how that goes as well.

I am the happiest I have been in a few days. My GPU's are not the problem. Yeah one problem down. Now to get to the cause of the Artifacting.

Hey Dale-C, check post # 2890 on page #289 for a link.

I think it is official, they just made it 2208 instead of having three versions of 2207, it just has not made it to the official download page yet.

So far no problems with it and seems to oc fine.



Nalo_b, that's how I done it,double click/install/reboot/cross fingers/.

good luck



N2Gaming, I run my squirrel cage between the cpu cooler and rear exhaust fan
and find It really helps with the chipset cooling,They do have heatpipes remember.As far as disrupting airflow, HA, it's not that big of a fan to over power two 120mm fans ,hehe.

Havent OC'd the Phenom yet..Opinions and suggestions most appreciated.
Dougw133, the 9950BE may outperform the FX-62 wit it's two extra cores. A few other primary differences is the DIE shrink and architecture. I guess it depends on what you primarily do on your computer. Do you run any applications/games that would take advantage of a multi-core processor? The TDP for a 9950BE (140W) is certainly a lot more than a FX-62 (125W). Would additional cooling be required for a 9950BE? Perhaps...but with what you have now as your primary cooler you may not have to worry.

Hope that helps

Eclipseaudio4, how did the board become "warped" in the first place?

Good luck
Not sure how It became warped but I'm guessing some one did not use all the standoffs and had a really heavy heatsink.

I looked at my board and it don't appear to be warped. I think your board may be more server or industrialized for reliability. go figure. You may have got your mobo after it was deemed not worthy. That is prolly how I ended up w/mine.

Has your mobo always had the coldboot issues?
