    Pentium D Overclock

    Nope. The AW BIOS v0604 do not allow it to change. It is just automatic.

    Need advice to achieve 1:1 ratio between Conroe and DDR2 750

    Thanks Sasqui. I do think what is posted at Wikki is not correct. The only catch with these latest uPs is that the memory cache should hit all the time. This never happens. Then it is filled better with lower CAS latency RAM offcourse. CAS latencies can be more changable with higher freq...

    Need advice to achieve 1:1 ratio between Conroe and DDR2 750

    Well not exactly but it may be 667MHz as well. It should be in the near about where you can reduce your number of clock cycles by one safely. Calculate your total write strobe time or read latch time by: f=1/T where f=frequency and T=time. Look for the clock time in "ns" you gained by...

    Are these signs of an overloaded power supply?

    He is right. It seems to be a PSU problem. But since you are receing that good one hopefully it will go away.

    Need advice to achieve 1:1 ratio between Conroe and DDR2 750

    Hi, I do not have any experience with Gigabyte MB. But the dynamics are the same for OC and the actual may be slightly different from MB to MB vendor. 1. You begin by the base of FSB that determine CPU CLK by multiplier 2. Base FSB x 4 is your final FSB to CPU 3. Memory usually is ratio...

    Pentium D Overclock

    Thanks for help. But with my ASUS PW5D2 -E Premium MB (bios v0604 ) it do allow you to change the multiplier directly but resets it to x16 (D 940) after reboot. The Speedstep can not be changed but has disabled or automatic as choice. I never like to do OC from software after the boot so I...

    random restart

    If your video card is of recent make like X800/6800 and beyond then power supply looks to be the culprit. Although defective MB may be the issue as well. If you can change the PSU for trial then try with one of 400W of good make for this sample load (i assume you have this) MB, AGP/PCI-e card...

    Upgrade Advice Needed!!

    2 Duo beats AMD by all means. Your better bet is to go Intel way. Then motherboard must be 965 or 975 based. I suggest one from ASUS. I was a die hard fan of MSI for the last several years and progressed from 845 to 865 to 915 to 925X with MSI. But with my 975 I have ASUS and before it...

    Pentium D Overclock

    Hi guys, First post. Do any of you have Pentium D (940). If so can you change the cpu multiplier from 16 to say 15 in BIOS? The reason I am asking because I have this processor and ASUS P5WD2 -E Premium meotherboard. The RAM is XMS2 DDR2 800. The cpu cooler is copper core Gigabyte ???? Pro...

    X800 Pro VIVO to XT PE Bios Mod

    Hi DrunkenMonkey, I have the same problem. My X800 Pro Vivo PCI-e simply won't unlock the pipes no matter which bios I tried. You are right I also was unable to find any PCI-e platinum edition bios for X800 pro Vivo. Further with each effort My card becomes GT in windows. ALthough when i forced...

    X800 Pro VIVO to XT PE Bios Mod

    Hello All, I have a Sapphire X800 Pro VIVO PCI-e card purchased in mid 2005. I tried the softmod using Sapphire, ATI, Gigabyte and Powercolor bioses for XT and XT PE of PCI-e flavor Everything failed and after the mod my card becomes GT because of the ASIC ID. There is no laser cut I...
