Suddenly my ram does not like running dual channel mode. As a matter of fact it won't even boot unless I use one stick. Did anyone else have this problem? And does anyone know why?

If I try to boot with two sticks it starts counting the Ram slots looking for ram and can't find it.

Try each stick by itself to make sure each stick of ram is still good... if not buy new ram

I'm pretty sure that's not it. It was fine before. Also It doesn't seem to matter which stick I put in the first slot. I read vaguely on the internet these boards do weird things with ram at times, so I was just hoping someone had an idea.

I use Everest Ultimate 5.3 as well.

Then Go into the File Tab at the top once you open Everest and select "preferences".

Go down to the "OSD" section and select OSD First and Check the "Show OSD" box and hit "Apply". Then go right below the OSD section, into "OSD Items" and you can customize all of your OSD items. (I.E. Color, Font, Font Size, Order of Items and which items you want to show on the Panel. I have mine start with wondows every time! It's really convenient!

It sounds like you may be having an issue with your integrated Memory Controller (CPU-NB). It doens't make sense that it's acting up out of of the blue...


EDIT:
Look like the egg will have my C3955 here on Monday! not bad for ordering it today!

okay welp looks like everest does read NB temps. Done a mod to my GD-70 b/c I had extra parts from the dead GD-70...so I might as well put those to good use.

Temps before were around 64-72c idle/load.

Here is a picture of the mod - Thinking about picking up another VenomousX




Temps after on idle -




Yeah the sink is a little close to both the first pcix16 slot and the actual cpu heatsink. They make a HR05 SLI model that I"m going to pick up so I can offset it. Losing the first pcie16x slot isn't that detrimental. I mean you guys could do this and throw any ol' nb waterblock on it you wanted.

26!! Nice! I'm definitely going to be making some tweaks.. I know that it'll make a difference in OCing EVEN if it's just the PCI-E Frequency that get's OCed!!! LOL

Let us know what the Difference is on the OC's

Did you keep the MOSFET Section of the HS on?

Anyone??

I see lot of guys with core higher than cpu, but for me its the other way around. I normally concentrate on core rather than on cpu though.

Holy smokes! what exactly did you do to get 26 C temps!!!

Did you replace the TIM? Any tips? I found replacing the TIM (using AS5) didn't help THAT much, but the fan certainly did.

How is that heatsink cooling the chipset??

max load so far is 29°C 30°C. SO far a 43°C drop on load...Yep mod well worth it.

I won't get to test it much until tomorrow. However, I did keep the stock vrm cooler as well. I got a picture I can snap. I'll upload it here in a minute.

Yeah I'm double posting... Felt this warranted more than just an edit. I have noticed a drastic difference on my 965c3 in the amount of volts needed to obtain an overclock. Just a quickie prime95 has me lowering volts to much lower than I've used before on this chip and a megahalem. Hmmmmmmmmm.
