Do you have CPUZ installed?

I'd like to see if the motherboard accepted the settings.

Why yes I do

so NB freq is 2000.0 Mhz
DRAM Freq is 800.1 MHz
FSB: DRAM 1:4
CAS# Latency(CL) 9.0 clocks
(tRCD) 9.0 clocks
(tRP) 9.0 clocks
(tRAS) 24 clocks
Bank Cycle Time (tRC) 40 clocks
command rate (CR) 1T

EDIT With out MS word how else can I take picks of my desk top and post those photos like everyone else does?

You could use the print screen command, paste it into ms paint(save) and then use a free online imaging hosting service to upload to.

There is also a validation option on cpuz to post your results online.

Hey there folks!

I've been following this thread for just over a week, and its great! You guys seem like a fun bunch!

I was looking for answers regarding the NB temps on the GD70 because I thought mine were a bit high. I get 50 celcius at idle on a cool day, but its more like 55 to 60 celcius shooting all the way up to 65/68 when gaming. This is after I made some adjustments I read here. I had two fans lying around, an 80mm and 120mm, so I put them to work temporarily to get some air moving over the NB. Before, my NB temps were 74/75 while in Mass Effect! That scared me...especially since the video started "twitching."

I was wondering if I should get a new board (another GD70 though), but I'm not so sure now after reading some of the posts here...Hmmm, maybe a little bit of my history with my current build...

I started my build back in April. After researching all the AM3 boards available, I thought the GD70 had the best layout and had some pretty darn good reviews as well. For the last couple years all my builds have also been on MSI boards.

I didn't have any intention of overclocking or anything, but wanted the option if I decided too. So, I also got a cheap WC setup (the CoolIT Domino ALC). The Domino didn't perform as well as I'd hoped, CPU idle temps were low-50s. But, I thought that was okay in our 35 celcius heat in the shade down here in Trinidad and Tobago. Then, at 4AM one morning, the stupid piece of crap split at the seam on the cheap waterblock and spewed coolant all over the innards of my rig!! The GD70 shut everything down. I guess coolant everywhere tripped protection circuits or something...

I was lucky. I think. The Silverstone Raven orients the board 90 degrees clockwise so my video card didn't get hosed, and coolant gathered up on the Crucial Ballistix heat spreader. I spent the next two days after that cleaning and drying. But I got my rig back up and running. Stock cooler this time. Ran like this for about two months, then got the TRUE Black 120 and Accelero Xtreme last week and put them in.

CPU temps at idle were down to 35 - 40 depending on time of day and never crossed 55 under load, after prime95 blend for nine hours during the day while I'm at work with the 4th core of my 720BE unlocked (this caused idle and load temps to go up a couple degrees, so stock is probably a few degrees lower). GPU temps were down to mid 40s to 50 at idle, ramping up to no higher than 65 under load (Mass Effect or Far Cry for thirty minutes). I was happy...until I saw the NB temps skyrocketing! I never really paid attention to it before (I guess because everything else was high anyway) so I was not sure whether this was a lingering after effect of my brush with coolant death. This, coupled with my no. 2 motherboard fan header being dead made me feel it was time for a new board...I'm still trying to decide.

I'm waiting on two antec spotcools that I would use to get some air over the NB and SB, and I may upgrade my case fans so I could get airflow more suited to my tropical cooling needs, and then see how the temps go before replacing my board.

Any info and advice from you guys would be greatly appreciated.

PS. eclipseaudio4, I think I messed up your spreadsheet... I'm sorry... could you fix my entry? All numbers like evryone else and the link to the cpuz validation database. Thnx.

Alright, everything came in yesterday, and I got the entire system built in a few hours. I brought it to life and it posted just fine. I looked around in the BIOS then proceeded to installing the OS.

Now I need your expertise. Whenever I go to install any operating system the rig freezes and will get stuck. Ive tried Windows 7 (64 and 32), Ubuntu, and XP 32. Every single one gets stuck in a similar fashion. It will start to load files, then 20-30 seconds in it just stops. I managed to get memtest to run and let it complete 1 pass with no errors. How long do you need to let memtest run to find errors usually?

I've tried 2 different graphics cards, as well as 2 different DVD drives. All of my DVD drives are IDE rather than SATA, could this be causing problems?

The current BIOS is 1.6, should I try updating to the latest 1.7 BIOS? Should I just use the M-FLASH utility found within the bios. I've never flashed a BIOS before so im reluctant to try on my brand new rig.

Lastly, how can I manually change the voltages in the BIOS, as all of the voltages are set to AUTO and grayed out? I'm concerned the RAM may be undervolted by default.

Thank you so much for your help.

EDIT: Oh yeah sometimes instead of just freezing the system will flat out reboot while in the middle of reinstalling :/
