Operation Shark Tooth

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Started new build last week.

This project is being done on the 'play as you pay' system and on a limited budget so it may take a while to finish.

week of Jan 15
New A8V with Venice +3500 and Corsair XMS C2 2x512 Installed
OC'd to 250 x 10 but was unstable dropped back to 240 x 10
sandra mem BW at mid 5000s
Loaded temp at 45C
Stable operation with Prime95 'torture test' for 8+ hrs.

Managed to disable Acoustic Management on WD 300G 'value'
Increased Xfer rate from 37 to 51 MBs

Should I try to clock at 240 x 11 with the stock air ?

EDIT:
Turns out the sytem was not stable at all. Prime 95 would drop out after about 4 hours, and the system would not reset, along with other obvious instability issues.

AMD's stock HSF's arent too shabby, so I'd go for it.

Looks like you got a nice little setup coming along, keep it up!

Thanks Chipp, considering the bargain deals on this build so far, it's coming along great IMO.

UPDATE:
Fixed the miserable performance on the WD drive by disabling the acoustic management 'feature' went from 34 to 52 MBs according to Sandra. The access time improved dramatically
(the seagate wont do it), but it is running about 48 MBs according to Sandra.

Definitely must transistion to a SATA Raid x0 setup.

Upped the multi to x11 and am now clicking along fine at 2.64 Gig.

Stable so far 24/7 at about 45C loaded

Looks Good

The PS definitely needs to be next on the list, hopefully I can grab that OCZ modstream next week.

I was pretty let down about the locked pipes on my x850pro but it's still not a bad board at all at stock speeds

Woohoo!

Got my Thermaltake 'Shark' Chassis and OCZ Modstream 520W Today.

I am now typing this on this suhweet rig!

The Blue Led Fan on the OCZ PSU goes will with the blue theme of Thermaltakes fantastic FT Case.

Rounded my EIDE Cables and Installed all the Guts, went without a hitch.


I was having some random shutdowns and resets, I am hoping the prob was the stock PSU.

Next UP : H2O baby! oh yeah

OK, picked up a Zalman CPS9500 Cooler this evening and Installed it.

Went like a dream.

I am seeing a remarkable decrease in temps immediately, I expect even better performance once the AS5 sets up good. (30 hrs. or so)

I attached a couple of pics of the case with & without cover.

My G.Skill Ram will be in tomorrow

Then it will be time to pump it up a little

O.K. my little sister's Compaq POS finally died.

I talked her out of buying another POS at the Worst Buy in favor of a custom rig for not too much money, (like almost nothing).

She will get my ASUS mobo with the Venice and the Corsair XMS along with the x850.

She will provide the case psu and opticals

and I will get:

DFI Lanparty UT nF4 UltraD Skt 939
and
Opty 148 Venus
and
XFX Geforce 7800GTX

I read on newegg that some people had problems with the 7800GTX and the mobo fan.

Am I heading in the right direction or should I go a different route.?

Got the Sticks but encountered problems eerily similar in nature to the Corsair.

There is a discussion about that here

I suspect the Mobo is just not up to it

anyways, I am hoping the G.Skill ZX will act a little better with the DFI mobo.

O.K. The limited budget and 'play as you pay' has gone out the window.

Enter Plan B.

Some unforseen windfall benefits (Read: Bonus and IRS Refund) and the timely death of my lil' sisters' Compaq POS

combined with

less than stellar performance of the ASUS A8V,

has prompted me to invest in a nice DFI Mobo, a 3700 Sandy, the XFX 7800GTX and 2 Sata HD.

After a very late evening and some minor bugs, SUCCESS! (with a little help from our good friends over at the street)

The new system is up and running, (albeit at stock speeds, for now)

Thanks to all of you here at the best OC forum on the web, hands down

Now, time for some more software installation and such......
