speedlever Posted April 28, 2007 Share Posted April 28, 2007 I recently built a new C2D rig. Specs are: ******************* Antec Solo, rear Tri-Cool at mid setting and dual 92mm Nexus up front. Corsair HX520W psu Asus P5B-E rev 1.01g flashed to 1202 Intel E6600, more or less stock at the moment, no overclock (not stable past 350 FSB) Noctua NH-U12F with ULNA HSF 2Gb Corsair DDR2-800 (PC2-6400-C4) Ram at 4-4-4-12 Gigabyte 7600GT Silent Pipe II (Rev 1) Forceware 158.18 drivers Dual Samsung SATA DVD burners WD 740ADFD 74 Gb for OS and programs (SATA) Samsung HD321KJ 320 Gb for data (SATA) Seagate 7200.7 300 Gb drive for backup (IDE) Advanced performance enabled on all 3 drives Atech internal card reader Vista/32 Ultimate ****************** In this thread, I start out wondering about temps and learning a bit about OC'ing the system.. but run into trouble pretty quickly with FSBs above 350. In this thread I run into further issues thinking maybe a Vista problem. I made several mistakes in the build. One was not loading chipset drivers until after much of the programs and other drivers were loaded. Another was to try to use the driver CDs that came with the Asus P5B-E mobo and Gigabyte 7600GT SP II video card... neither of which would run on Vista/32 but some of which I managed to install somehow. Plus, I'm still learning how to properly setup Vista so I don't get clobbered by the administrator msgs all the time... to name one nagging issue. IAC, is it possible that my inability to OC the system to FSB400 and the failures in superPi and Orthos are memory related even though I detected no memory errors in memtest 86+? I'd appreciate any suggestions you may have. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
