I am very new to the site, and am learning something new everytime I click to the next page. I own a new Asus Rampage Formula. I have it sitting on my bench getting it all together before I put it into my case.

I am having one issue though. When I go to power it up from the mobo itself, The board starts up and than it stops, then after about 5 sections, it starts back up again. Cooling isn't the problem. I am running a Pentium 4 @3.6 gigahertz. I was told that the chip would work with mobo. Same form factor and all.

If ANYONE can help! I'd be totally Stolked...

Memory Recommendations.. 7 7 7 24 These are the numbers. Think of these numbers as cycles per Thread. 7 Cyl... Then 7 Cyl... Then 7 Cyl... Then 24 Cyl.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227478

if you have 9-9-9-24 There are more cycles that have to process for each thread. So the lower your numbers the faster the ram will work even at that speed. Like 1333 Mhz. 7-7-7-20 will be faster than `1333Mhz 9-9-9-27

This CPU cooler will work alot better.
Well you gotta remember that the 1156 boards got the RAM way closer to the CPU socket, so im not even sure if the prolimatech wil fit even with low sticks of ram (since i got the p55-gd65 myself, it wil work if you only use 2 sticks of ram and put them in the right ram sockets of the channels, that may hinder youre upgrades later so it becomes a matter of need/priorities on what to do.

I havent had time to see how much or what ram he is gonna buy so i cant say anything if it wil fit or not, but if youre going for 4 sticks of ram its better imo to go for the H50, youre 100% sure it will fit with the ram and its a great heatsink.

Well that tyranisaurus Rex that he picked out may not fit the case. I saw one at best buy the other day and it looked a foot tall in the package. Maybe the corsair H-50 would be a better idea for him.

I have been doing a little bit of messing around with my Nikon camera and adding a led strip in the top of my Scout case... Here are a couple of pictures...Seems like the new Nikon that I picked up, sees every little bit of dust that might be in the case thought... Might be the red lighting too. Not sure.... Sill trying to figure out what I'm going to do with this build... I guess its going to be a back up rig for now.[/quote]

MMMmmmmMMM drool, i like shiny things, that looks very nice dude.
Hmmm what ever happened to my pc last night, lol must of been sleep moddin.
i put a xmas tree in the case

Thanks for the recommendations I'll look for some good memory now. Though I've looked into some reviews of your OCZ memory and they don't look so good. One in particular had problems using this with the motherboard I'll be ordering. I'll go look for more reliable cas 7 memory though. Also, I'll stick to my current cooler as it looks far more badass

Lol i just checked, now where did that post goto as i remember typing it in, must of got side tracked halway through.
No that is'nt me in the picture, god bless his socks who ever he is and lets hope he's at home with family this year.
It was a picture i found off google pictures, thought it was a fitting xmas card to you all
well well well omg what have i made my case into, by the looks of it theres a storm inside my case, temps have reduced drasticly in both idle and load.

Ripping out the top drive bays and adding 3 140mm fans has blown my case wide apart, just gotta get a led 140mm for the top and a led exaust fan sometime over the next month as i've treated myself way too much this last few weeks.
I'll bob some pics up soon so you can dribble down your tops.
lol just stressed tested and i'm about 2-3c cooler on full load at my max stable oc of 3800

I've been having endless problems with postage of purchased goods and what not, it's never ending. I ordered a few things a month ago, and they still havn't arrived, and it was purchased within Australia, oh well , but that's another story.

Here's my Scout as it is currently. I'm happy how it's turned out, I'm just waiting on the reservoir, and I'm contemplating whether I should get a different waterblock, but I can't be fussed, the current one is doing it's job.

I picked up everything (The watercooling goodies) for $60, and used some of the old parts I had and got one or two extra goodies. The res is another $39, so in total it's set me back about a $100, that's awesome I think!

I've tried to keep the cable management as tidy as possible, and will finish everything up once I've got all the desired components.
now that's a very nice price :O:O
post #3780 of 28613
Well heres the finished product, i finished, i stressed then i slept cos i was pooped after being awake all night.
Just a few more things left todo, 24pin extension cable should be here tomoz so that'll be abit better placement of the mobo 24pin.
