@ Paradigm Shifter is there any major performance bump using the 301.79 drivers as opposed to 301.42 in BF3? I'm currently using 301.42, been working good so far, I'd only update if it was worth it.

I'm not running Raid bud smile.gif

Nice setup, I need to get another HDD for my main computer and I want another SSD. Deciding on going with Raid0 or not. Maybe I'll just use it for games like your setup.

HDDs and SSDs that have only one job to do, must work best thumb.gif

And I just move games with Steam Mover, on and off of my games SSD when I feel the need smile.gif
A link to Steam Mover is in my Sig!

Oh, I also have a Fraps partition on the front of one of my WD640 storage HDD coolsmiley.png
PS. I got most of my Rep+ from HDD and storage!
My Steam Mover thread was a Rep+ mine biggrin.gif

Can you even install games from steam in multiple locations? I haven't gone over to google yet. lol Is this something you can do with your applications? I haven't open the application yet, so I have no idea how it works until I get home and try it out.

Not noticed huge gains, although mostly what I've been playing recently has been Civ 5 (Gods & Kings coming out has caused this) and that's mostly CPU bound. If 301.42 is behaving for you, stay there. The only reason I tried 304.79 (I usually avoid nVidia betas like the plague) was because 301.42 had some bugs for me.

...

Bit of an update on the Phenom II rig...

With one stick of RAM (doesn't matter which one out of the four) it still BSODs trying to install Win 7. Installing Linux is still fine. Installing Windows XP 32 is fine. Installing XP 64 is also fine, but driver support is appalling. I've really hammered it today in XP64 with LinX and it went for three hours before I got bored and stopped it to try something else. Popped the drive in a different system to wipe it, put it back in, XP (both) install OK. Win 7 got to a cursor on a blank screen and stayed there before I went shopping. When I tried it again when I got back, it gave me a new and entirely original BSOD again (7E this time...)

I'm going to try installing Vista SP2 x64 tomorrow to see what that brings.

I've decided for the time being that I can't be bothered. If Vista doesn't work tomorrow, I'll put XP back on, dual boot with linux and use it like that until I can work up the enthusiasm for beating my head into a wall again. Basically, I don't want to spend any more money on a system that isn't working for no apparent reason... I could understand it if the RAM was bad, but it passes Memtest without any issues at all...

Paradigm Shifter,
Is it really worth it for you to put Windows 7 on it? I mean, it's all fine and dandy to troubleshoot hardware/software to a stable point, but what did it cost you? How much? Time? How long? Is it really worth it in the end? In a work environment being down for so long is not acceptable by any means. Honestly, this holds true in your personal time as well. I know we have all faced times when troubleshooting just became too over cumbersome.

I agree. However, since this system was working before I moved and it had to go into storage (was it really the beginning of June?!) with Windows 7 installed, it offends me for it to suddenly not work. thumb.gif

Funny story.

I just tried a few things:

I put this Memtest Passed OK RAM into my Surround rig. Yeah, yeah, I know what you're thinking - risking the working box is really stupid... well, with this supposedly "working" RAM in it, Surround rig won't even boot. Seriously, it wouldn't post. At all.

Spend an hour fighting through still sealed boxes to find a heatsink (I've gathered quite a collection over the years, and I was lucky in the search or I'm sure I'd still be there) that'll fit over the 'tall' RAM I have spare from my last bout of upgrade-fever. Result! Windows 7 now installed. Not a BSOD in sight (stress tests will wait until tomorrow)... it's interesting that XP64 was OK with what is rapidly appearing to be 'bad' memory, though. Perhaps it's a little more forgiving than I thought? Need to take RAM back up to its rated 1600MHz (it's currently at 1333MHz, and no, that made no difference to other RAM) but other than that it's looking promising.

Dug out my old Foxconn BlackOps mobo and stuffed this new (suspect) DDR3 into it. The X48 chipset has to have one of the most forgiving memory controllers I've ever experienced in it... dig out spare SATA HDD to try installing Windows 7... *blam*... BSOD.

Now, I'll admit that Corsair Memory has to be one of the few products in the world (other than HP sauce biggrin.gif) that I exhibit anything approximating to brand-loyalty toward. I've used it for years, from SD-RAM to DDR3 and everything in between, and never had a problem. But I'm going to avoid Corsair Vengeance LP (Low Profile) like the plague now, because that's eight (count 'em!) sticks of the stuff that haven't worked. It even proudly proclaims Phenom II compatibility on the box!

...

I'll get in contact with the retailer tomorrow. Sadly, I have something else I need to order anyway (removal men cracked the cap of my bottle of TIM cleaner (don't know how) and it leaked. Fortunately, there weren't any books or electronics in that box, but some of my old t-shirts now smell of TIM solvent. rolleyes.gif So I need a new bottle.

...

Thanks for listening and suggesting, guys. Rep all round. smile.gif

Moral of story: Memtest Passed Doesn't Always Mean It's Alright. wink.gif

Not round here, while I know the neighbours, none of 'em strike me as technical. Lovely folks, though.

I seem to have made collecting Windows licenses something of a past-time; I've got loads of 'em, including four different Windows 7 discs (HP, Pro, Ult and Pro SP1)... I'll investigate more into this tomorrow; actually having managed to get 7 installed on this troublesome Phenom II box has made me a lot less annoyed than I was wink.gif ... now I just want to make sure it's not going to conk out on me again randomly.

It would also help if BSOD errors were a little more helpful. Without Windows installed, a BSOD doesn't create a dump/minidump, so there's nothing to go looking for more detail in.
