I wouldn't try frying the Ram but if it needs more volts and you fel comfortable doing so, let her have it until she is stable. Within reason. otherwise, I would go with getting different Ram. I just feel like it'sa settings issue. Do you have the Ram DCT set to Both instead of DCT0 or DCT1? That does have an affect on things.
From turning down my HT link do you mean the HT needs more volts or put more volts into my RAM? also were do I find the settings for DCT0 DCT1? I dont know were its at, so what ever is stock is probably it.

@ToxicAdam, sorry for my ignorance but could you explain how a faulty PSU is tied into my errors? Thank you sir

I appreciate everyone's patience
Thank you all

All you're symptoms are signs components aren't getting enough voltage.

You shouldn't have to adjust any of this crap(HT, ram etc) to get your system working at stock.

If its not overheating and shutting down.. there is no other reason I can see. Not at stock setting anyways. If you were overclocking I would suggest adjusting a few bios options but you're not. It could be other faulty hardware, this is why I told you to take your ram, gpu and possibly the PSU to a buddies house and test them on their PC. If you won't do this then we'll going in circles here.

Keep trying it mav. I had a similar issue where it wouldn't post after enabling ACC, it took awhile, but eventually it came back, after much cmos clearing.

Good luck.

That could very well be the issue...

As far as the Voltages. Obviously AMD is built to run at 1333. But I told him to try for 1600 With these settings. Now if you can't get these setting to even run 1333 or 1066 for that matter then yes, there must something wrong with some hardware. You shouldn't have to crank the volts just to run at auto and SPD presets... That's very true...


Chops, the DCT setting are in the "Advance Dram settings" in the Cell menu. Above the Dram Strap. (1:2.66, 1:3.33, 1:4 area)

Make sure that you set it to "BOTH" instead of DCT0 or DCT1, IF running higher than the SPD presets...

Hi. Can't wait till all my components are here to get started. MB arrived today so Christmas came early. Have been reading this forum for a bit and can't wait to post all my 'NooB' questions I'm sure to have

Thanks to everyone who has already given advice that I'll be using.

I liked this quote. Always best to start troubleshooting at the beginning. Basically with a coumpter, I'd say that start is the plug.

Ok, so I located a PSU its an Antec 500w

Should I return all the settings back to auto/stock and hook this PSU in, to rule out PSU problems?

That would probably be best. if all is normal then you shouldn't have to adjust anything to boot and run a quick 3Dmark test. I wouldn't neccesarily suggest OCing with that PSU as it might not be powerful enough. But I'm sure that you knew that .

Let us know!

Im not happy So I plugged in that 500w PSU and turned everything back to Auto... ran a flawless 3dmark06 actually scored about 20 points higher than I did last time, with the old Mobo and cpu.

Im going to play some games see what happens, but if my 700w Tagan is bad im gonna punch a goat... never used PSU and its crap =/

Thank you toxicAdams, seems my Tagan PSU cant handle it.

A bad PSU could damage your motherboard. After all those power crashes... Glad you caught it in time..

Now get yourself a shiny new PSU. I'd say at least 750w.. keep in mind the manufacturer is more important than the watt rating.
