    Gigabyte GA-MA790GP-DS4H BIOS versions

    I decided to update my board to the F7b BIOS. I was about to find the Core Control features in there. I have a PII 940 attached to my board....I as a little disappointed by the fact that i could only control Cores 2 & 3...1 & 4 Core failures would mean that the whole processor would be dead...

    SPDTool: Read, Edit and Flash your Memory's SPD

    If I remember correctly, when i had adjusted the Number of Row or Column Addresses while i was performing the same type of Edit, i found that my Ram had Dropped down to 1GB per Stick. Mine are 14 Row 10 Column 2GB sticks. If you have changed either one of these it could be a major cause of the...

    I think they must be watching this thread too...but what is even funnier...when i looked at the Date of release...it was 12/14/09...(I just refreshed the page in my browser which i still had open) Shame on them for putting the wrong date on the website....Actual release...2/4/09. Says it...

    Gigabyte GA-MA790GP-DS4H BIOS versions

    Nothin Much as far as the actual components. The only different as far as capability is the UD4H is supposed to be able to handle DDR2 1200. Other than that there is no compatibility difference. F7a (or an updated version) will probably be released for the DS4h in a little while. It seems...

    I do not have the Rig with the 720BE in my house. It is my brother-in-law's computer, and i locked him out of the BIOS so he doesn't go in there messing with it. He lives a few hours drive from me... If you having stability issues with those cores unlocked at a stock speed, it seems you may...

    Gigabyte GA-MA790GP-DS4H BIOS versions

    Sounds to me like your 4th core is just bad. That processor is still pretty powerful even with only 3 cores...just overclock the fool out of it.

    Gigabyte GA-MA790GP-DS4H BIOS versions

    You should first work to unlock the 4th core, then worry about trying to overclock. The reason it is marketed as a triple core is because that 4th core is not as stable as the other 3 and will not overclock as well as the others. There is no guarantee that you will be able to unlock the 4th...

    I too have the same situation that you do...with the exception of the noise. I have a Xigmatek HDT-S1283 on my Phenom II 940. It is a very quiet cooler even at max RPM, but still covers the First RAM Slot completely and the 2nd Slot partially. It is not a big issue to me as i have standard...

    I'll see if i can recreate the power on with PSU issue on my own motherboard, Have you tried a different PSU on the board? Dell's Desktops were bad about that same thing, especially the dimension 2000-4000 series, and i have had different power supplies fix the issue in the past. I haven't had...

    Gigabyte GA-MA790GP-DS4H BIOS versions

    The UD4H Has a Multiplier for the HT Link? Or is that something new with the F6 BIOS? My DS4H has always had a Frequency which never really made much sense to me anyway. Anywho... I am glad to hear that you were able to get a stable 3.3Ghz OC. Not bad coming from 2.6ghz.

    Gigabyte GA-MA790GP-DS4H BIOS versions

    As far as the NB Voltage, I am not 100% sure exactly which one actually controls the NB Voltage, so i bumped both up by .5V. The Southbridge is mainly for your Onboard graphics, but since you are playing with overclocking i wouldn't think that you would be using the onboard graphics. An Edit...

    Gigabyte GA-MA790GP-DS4H BIOS versions

    Have you tried dropping the Multipliers down on the NB? When you are overclocking with the HT Link you are also overclocking the NB and the RAM too. Chances are if your board is getting too hot it is going to be the NB to blame. I had my DS4H at 267 on the HT Link, and by dropping the NB...

    SPDTool: Read, Edit and Flash your Memory's SPD

    Did some research and found that your Laptop's memory is not as uncommon as you may think. It is standard 144Pin PC100 SODIMM @ 128MB. This is actually pretty easy to get for cheap on ebay. Found a Lot of 4 for $10 on ebay. If i am correct then your RAM looks a lot like the one in this...

    I do not believe it is possible to block specific chips on the RAM...however I do know that you can control how many chips are in use on the stick. What are the specs of the RAM? Pin, speed, etc... What are the Max Memory specs for the motherboard in which it is installed on...

    Well I was able to successfully create an EPP profile for the 533Mhz...but was still unable to run with the 5.33 multiplier on the RAM....*Sigh*...Oh well...i guess i will just have to overclock the fool out of it.

    Just out of curiosity. Is there any possible way i could get a copy of your SPD from your Kingston HyperX Memory. You can use SPDTool to get it.

    Mr Wizzard...i need some help. I am trying to adjust my RAM to show a timing for 533Mhz (DDR2 1066 which is what my RAM is marketed as). I was thinking of setting up an EPP Profile for this. The only problem i came up with is the fact that 533Mhz is not listed in the program. By doing some...

    I was looking at my DDR2 1066 RAM and i noticed that I only have a JEDEC Setting for 400Mhz instead of the 533mhz I should have. Which settings would I need to correct to make this happen. I have already manually set my BIOS to run with 2.1V as specified by the Manufacturer and all... and i...

    Gigabyte GA-MA790GP-DS4H BIOS versions

    Just out of Curiosity, In CPUz does your RAM show the 533mhz timing in the SPD Tab or is it like mine where the 533Mhz timing was left out even though the stick is marketed as DDR2 1066.

    You can use the WD Diagnostic or the SeaTools. Either one will work. As far as your temps are concerned, it looks like your GPU temps are a little high for my likings. And that is not even under a heavy load. If you were playing a game that temp would climb. All of the rest of the temps...

    What about everything else...what are the rest of your temps? You may wan tto try a hard drive diagnostic. Western Digital has a very thorough one that will also read the SMART data that is stored in the hard drive too. It works with non WD drives as well.
