new ram, the pc 2700 just cannot keep up with those opty's. you might be able to turn them up and run some more current through them.

yeah man, grab a nice 4x512MB kit, Maybe some PC3500 and get some nice clocks on that going, along with the timings.

Its probably just because its running off of 1 Core running at 1.4Ghz, Right?

Could Cool'n'Quiet be messing with you?

I turned cool and quiet off (1st thing)
It could be running off of 1 processor, but how would i know that? Is there a way to see if im running off of 1 or 2 processors?
As for the Overclocking on this rig, there is a billion options that i see, mainly due to the NF4 Pro chipset, but we need to get it working on stock first

Well, Open up task manager in windows and see which core has the most activity as soon as your into windows?

Other then that, not too sure.

If you got 2 temp-probes and stuck one on each core I KNOW you would know, lol.

Well, keep in mind this thing is not a beast, 1.4GHz isn't blistering fast, and unless you're using a lot of multithreaded apps, it'll never be really "fast." What you need to do is return that 1GB module of PC2700 and buy 2x512MB PC3200, or 2x1024MB PC3200 if you're feelin spendy. Dual channel will give you a nice boost, but still, it won't be "fast" per se because it's a slow processor. And Super Pi is not multithreaded, so it'll be running off one processor.

Humm intresting about superPI... But what i mean by slow is, the computer mouse skips across the screen and stuff like that.. But i thought i would be smooth atleast..Seems more like a driver issue..

Note, i looked in windows task manager and both processors mirror eachother..so yea, to processors are running.

More memory with better timings... AMD's prefer tighter timings!

Well yeah, that does sound like a driver problem... I thought meant like benching slow or loading things slow. Do the colors look weird at all? That's usually a sign of bad video card drivers... only other thing I could think of is chipset drivers, maybe get them off MSI's site or the drivers disc, or the opposite, download the latest from nVidia (6.70 I think).

definantly go for some ddr2 because all that bandwith trying to go through the ram is just bottlenecking the crap out of it.

The colors look good and everything, and i loaded all the drivers off of MSI's CD that came with the board. There websight doesnt have any newer drivers though, just the manual

yes, nvidia has them here (making a list of what i need to install tommrow, back on intel rig)
