post #2851 of 9641
So I am trying to figure out this Tagan 700w PSU, I have a few questions regarding how a PSU works... Well my 6 pin for both GPU's are a solid 12.03v but all my 4 pin molex are 5.03v, the box and manual say all the rails coming off this crap PSU are 12v... So is the PSU fine? The rails that need to be 12v seem to be 12v.

Im still trying to trouble shoot why my PC does not ike GPU's

I talked to a gentleman local here that said the ATI 4850's tend to over heat and rather than start to artifact they completely shut off and that is what was causing my Hyper Sync errors.

[B]EDIT[B] On a plus note I found a feature in my bios that turns the blue LED's on the mobo off, really helps when ou have UV lights^^

I'll be honest man, I have an OCZ Vertex SSD and A Western Digital 500Gb 7200RPM with 32Mb Cache and I can't tell the difference. The WD is a green drive as well so it runs at like 23-25*C. Very cool!

SO get some Ram for sure. Maybe even some that you could one day put into a Water Cooling loop. Just a thought though.

IIRC Chops,

I think that the molex are suppsed to be 5v plugs for fans and hard drives or Whatever... I'm not totally up on the PSU Situation as I would like to test mine out as well. (the one in my sig) It's quad 12v rails @ 20amps. I've noticed some things that make me suspect the PSU is either weak or just not enough all together... IDK. That's one of the reason that I wanted to get a 5770!

P.S. What would make a PC Freeze first, Ram issue or CPU Issue?

Hate to be a bugger, but I thought the WD Green runs on 5400RPM? Because the word "green" was supposed to mean eco-friendly and more friendly to the environment thus, saving power and speed. For sure all the blacks are 7,200RPM.

Hey again everyone. I have a question for those fellow Megahalem users out there: My temps are going at 37C@Idle and 58C@Load with my settings of 3.791@1.472v. Is that too high? Because I thought my temps would be much lower with such a big cooler...

Well it depends on the fan you are using also the TIM you are using and how you seated the Mega on the TIM. Oh yea ambient temps play a part too...What are your ambient temps right now, what Thermal paste did you use and what fans are you using?
post #2856 of 9641
I don't know which of the settings in HW Monitor is ambient temps, but I'm assuming it's one of these:

TMPIN0 = 41C
TMPIN1 = 39C
TMPIN2 = 34C

I'm using OCZ Freeze, and I have two Scythe Ultra Kaze's in a push/pull layout.

No problem..

I'll be honest I just assumed that it was 7200rpm. When you look for 5400 or 7200 it DOESN'T show up under either of them. And even when you go to the WD site and look them up it doesn't say anything about rpms that they run...

Still, it runs pretty fast in my machine. I do have a SSD though and I guess I stand corrected! Tu Chez!!!

P.S. Why is the thread so quiet? Is everyone Chrsitmas Shopping or something???

Actually, I believe the WD Green drives will vary between 5400 and 7200 depending on the load. They are a bit hush-hush about the specifics of it, but I'm pretty sure they are a variable speed drive.

What does the temp say on your thermostat? I can gauge a lil by that also how much voltage are you giving the CPU

Well, it's -12 right now, and I'm in my basement, so... let's say 8 degrees?

EDIT: Actually, let's say 15C. If it was 8C, I'd be frozen atm
EDIT 2: CPU Voltage is at 1.472v
