having issues please help

I don have alot of time to post but this is my only chance at post it tonight.

Getting into the niddy griddy here I just purchased a new rig. It consists of the parts as follows.

P8P67 Deluxe

Intel core i7 2600k at right now 3.40 GHZ

G.Skill 8gb ripjaw x ddr3

one gtx 560 superclocked (came sced atlready)

Ralink RT61 Turbo network card

Coolermaster silent pro 1000w gold PSU

Collermaster HAF X Blue edition that does include all fans even the optional top 200mm fan.

With this here is my problems. Currently I have windos 7 x64 bit and its WORKING. What the issue is, is that my network card WILL NOT stay connected to the WRT54G router we have. This card was in my olders system and it worked fine. Also, I cant download anything as it just times out as well as looking at internet stuff. Also my ping will shoot up to over 22k in Ventrilo so I cant even use that to talk to my friends.

My only other issue is that I am getting HIGH TEMP cpu problems upon bootup. I press F1 and it starts windows 7 x64 bit normally. When i get into windows I check the following programs one at a time to see. Note that TUBO BOOST and TPU on my mobo are ON but nothing changing on my cpu, it isnt getting any boost at all and is right now stuck at the stock speed of 3.40 GHZ.

In the Bios it shows my system at 80C OR HIGHER however, in windows on THREE different programs it shows my system at

27C-38C, this is not under load settings as I cant put anything on my computer yet until the network thing gets fixed.

I hve the updated bios on the MOBO, my wife's computer is running fine on the internet that we have so it appears to be my new compy. It is really idaaspointing that its going to crap because I spent over 1.3k on this system and I cant even brows the net at a decent speed. I also have the correct drivers for my NIC card so I realyl dont know what could be happening with my system. Other then that, my rig is working perfectly.

Well, to start back to front and address the temp issue first...I didn't really read thoroughly since I haven't experienced it myself, but I know i've seen at least a couple of threads here pertaining to incorrect CPU temp readings in BIOS. One person was saying that it reported 70-80C temps and yet when he touched the heatsink it was cool. You might search around a little on that, but I think it's a non-issue.

With your connectivity problem, can you give a little more detail as far as what type of router and modem and how everything's linked? As far as the connection you can get...is it just slow, drops out intermittently, or no connection at all? It sounds like it's more your settings than a hardware issue to me, but with a little more info I think it's solveable.

To be honest, I have no personal experience with overclocking, so I'm going to stay out of that aspect of it.

With regards to the temp reading in BIOS. Have you felt your CPU to see if it's hot? If it really is that temp, you'll be able to feel it.

As far as your connectivity issues...How far is your PC from the router, and what's in between? It sounds more like you're just getting a poor signal than anything else. Normally I would say check all your TCP/IP settings, but it should be easy to check the signal first.

I would try moving your PC next to your router to see if you can eliminate signal loss as the problem, then go from there. Sometimes I run into similar problems on my laptop when I'm at the far end of the house from the router.

Is your wife's PC on wireless also, and if so, how far is it from the router? Once you've eliminated the signal as the problem, I would check your network settings. You did say that this is a card you've used before and it was working fine? Were all the other conditions the same as far as where your PC is located? I think that the problem is in one of these two things, signal or settings...

I've been scouring the interwebs to find out more about your NIC card. From what I've found there are several issues that seem to be recurring:

1) Direct conflict with routers because of DHCP settings.
2) Crashes on systems with greater than 4GB RAM (due to drivers).
3) Driver problems with Win 7.

Problems 2 and 3 seem to be much more common. I did find an old thread that seems to have some good suggestions.

Basically it seems that depending on your specific setup, you need to have a particular driver (not necessarily the latest), as that's a very finicky card.

Again, I have no personal experience with this card...just trying to do a little research for ya...


Hope this helps,

Rich
