Yes the GTX 460 requires two PCIe power plugs so both power connectors have to be plugged into the video card.

You should be able to touch the SB or MCP which ever that chip is w/out burning your fingers. This is one of the reasons I mentioned cable management and possibly better air flow/circulation in your case. What size and how many case fans are you running atm?

Oh lucky you because you have an older revision mobo that came w/the removable bios chip.

Thank you all so much! I probably would have never gotten to where I did, without all the tips and help here

N2:

About the AM3 installation, it might be worthwhile to add in the OP instruction document, that sometimes PS2 keyboard would also act weird, until you turn off caps Lock - it allowed me to use the arrows normally.
Also removing ALL USB devices is sometimes needed to boot without reboot loops - you reconnect the USB devices as soon as Windows starts loading.
I hope we get a fix for this sometime soon

About your questions: I have front intake 120mm Fan, side 80mm (I think) intake fan, and of course the dual 120mm fans with radiator, pushing hot air outside the box.
Side panel is also leaning on the case, cause the radiator is so big I cant close it
I duno, either I installed it in wrong way, but I dont really see any other orientation for that...

Most problems solved when I tore off the faulty 500GB hdd.. it goes for RMA SMART errors.. shame on the data on it
I just finished test driving Alien vs Predator on max settings for like 20 mins.. nothing intense just until checkpoint (its almost 5am...) - cpu temp was like 37 or something like that.. idle is about 34 or so.
Small problem there: It says no DX11 hardware found.. which is weird! this card supports DX11...
I installed latest nVidia drivers..

Please look at my Validation data below - what else do you suggest I tweak to max out CPU water cooling I have? and what is the nominal CPU temp for Phenom 965?
lol at this rate I think I can reach 4ghz stable

Also I found the option for overclocking the RAM timings - there are LOADS of settings there :S I tried to change 2 I think from auto to 4, and then system did not boot I had to reset CMOS.

I would appreciate percise instructions (perhaps a screenshot with phone?) on what I need to change?




Here is my Validation link -




PS: How do you see my BIOS is not soldered? the chip with yellow sticker?
If so, how do I get extra chip? would be good to help testing beta versions if I can

Hi guys, I need help
Finally I have found a p2 940 new, price right and not too high but I don't know if buy or not.
My MB is "vista ed", cpu is supported and I have SLI 88gt (750/1850/1050) that works very good. With 100-120euros I could have a new computer but have sense?

thx

Thanks guys for all the links about overclocking guides.

I started reading, and realized I was not properly stress testing - once I have started checking, it turns out my setup is kind of not stable! not only that, I cant figure out why:

I tried every possible combination of multiplier, voltage, reference speed, ram voltage.
Prime95 just keeps failing one of the workers after few mins.
So, I decided to verify it works correctly for stock voltage - I set back the multiplier to 3.4ghz, and tested with 1.4volt and 1.31 or something - to my surprise, they still keep failing just the same!! I now even tried 3.2ghz and it still fails:


Code:
[Wed Sep 29 14:48:18 2010]
FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4
Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file.
Latest test attempts:
vcore 1.36v, core speed 3231mhz

W5=0 532 1242 666 0 -1 -1 -1 -1

Am I doing something wrong? if not has anyone else made this test to be sure this cpu is really stable on this mobo?
