Hey I got a case....for now.
Hey Derp what case is that?
That's a haf912. Got my matching 460 today!!! YAY!
Correct its a HAF 912. Not a bad case, wish it had a black interior though. And congrats on the 460 SLi action.
You probably need an older version of the software to read it right.
That's what I was thing also.
Well I really do hope that it works, but at the moment, its really not doing anything at all and that's really not what I was hoping for!!
I have tried different CPU, ram, GPU. I've taken the battery out, I've reset the CMOS, I've reseated the CPU block and tried both sets of ram, one dimm after another and still no change in the rig It just wont post for love nor money!!
If you look on the other page, mine worked fine with the latest release of CPU-Z The only thing I can see that is different, is that you have more ram and I thought that the NF7-S was only able to read or use 1.5Gb of ram??
I think it might be the amount of ram you've got. I don't see any other difference in the rigs, these are the CPU-Z Validator shots I had from my old Socket A rigs yesterday:
Have you tried taking a dimm out??
All three you have are screwed liked mine. See how they are rejected. Look at the fsb and the rated fsb. Also look on the left beside freq. It shows your actual speed which is right but beside that it shows the fsb and multi. IF you multiply them together you would get twice the speed the proc is running. The fsb needs to show half what cpu-z is reporting. Like in my case it should be 200 not 400. Now I ran it on my A7n8x system, which has the same amount of mem, Same cpu speed and same chipset. Only difference is the Asus system is running an actual xp 3200+ where the Nf7-2 system is running a xp-m oced to xp3200+ speeds. The overclock may have something to do with it. Here's a screenshot of the A7n8x system. Notice the fsb speeds.
I do apologise, I thought that they where successfull!! Liars!!
Well I'll keep an eye out for it when I submit anything again... I thought it was just fine??
Oh well, I hope to get a few more validated as I've just managed to get my 762 board running and as its nearly midnight, I think I should get to bed as I've gotta be up for a 15 hour day tomorrow and a 12 hour shift during that... ugh.... Something to look forward to when I get home at least
I'll try and post up a few pics tomorrow night if I can
Now The last one I posted was successful. Now where the procs you where testing ided in the bios for what they where? I know on my nf7-s system the bios ided the proc as unkown @ 2.2 ghz and my A7n8x system has a actual xp 3200 so it was able to id the chip. That must be what is throwing cpu-z off.
Here's my rig
Oo skeleton, very nice
I must say I do like the skeleton, although, I would NOT like the dust
That skeleton is very nice. I like it. Compressed air should take care of the dust.
But why underclock?
Seems he has Intel SpeedStep enabled which throttles down the CPU when full power is not needed.
Why not keep it enabled? No sense of turning it off on a Sandy Bridge system as you overclock through Turbo anyways. Also some boards if you disable power saving it won't overclock anyways, really doubt thats the case on his UD5 though.
I have three CPU's..
I thought they worked but I was wrong...
Got more power today. Corsair sure has amazing warranty and they ship you replacement first if you ask kindly. AX750 started coil whining like nuts after a year quiet use and Corsair granted RMA.
Crossing fingers that the replacement doesn't squeal like a mouse out of the box
BabySky, it also looks like you may be running your RAM in single channel unless it's being reported wrongly.
Go my new Samsung 40" LCD TV today
Here it is with old 24" LCD monitor as comparison
