    That ABS you mention is likely very good. Is it in your price range? Got a link to it?

    Really! Nice to hear it!

    So it was indeed the PSU then eh? So which did you finally decide to get?

    Hello
    I have a Gigabyte EP45 -DS3 and a dual channel kit 2x2gb Mushkin 2,1v pc8000 at 1000mhz ( the red ones :) )
    My problem is i only get them to work at 800 mhz. I tried to change in bios the settings according to what i saw read here but my bios looks different and the computer freezes after a while. I updated to F9 lately but still doesn't work
    what changes should i use to make them work stable? Could you give me a hint about the right settings with this board bios.
    Thx

    @ Ajax26, Please make a thread and I will help you. There is so many posts here I would get lost since you do not have your specs in your sig. Likely you need to change straps, and your FSB to run 1000 exactly and you need to set some voltages as well. Make a new thread with your specs and your issue (So I don't forget) and I will be glad to help you out

    @ lilmunchkinme

    I cannot help you much with AMD Overclocking, but I can say you will be fine setting your ram volts and you should.

    As for your Hard drive issues all drives are like that it is because of how they are rounded up by windows. Windows sees it as 1,024 for a kilobyte and the drive manufacturers see it as only 1,000.

    Here is some reading about this >>>
    Binary vs. Decimal Measurements

    Hard Drive Size Discrepancy - Mac Guides

    The following is from Seagate's FAQ section.

    * Discrepancy Between Reported Capacity and Actual Capacity
    * Motivation for Proposed Prefixes for Binary Multiples

    Discrepancy Between Reported Capacity and Actual Capacity
    Many are confused when their operating system reports, for example, that their new ST310240A 10.24-Gbyte hard drive is reporting only 9.85 Gbytes in usable capacity. Several factors may come into play when you see the reported capacity of a disc drive. Unfortunately there are two different number systems which are used to express units of storage capacity; binary, which says that a kilobyte is equal to 1024 bytes, and decimal, which says that a kilobyte is equal to 1000 bytes. The storage industry standard is to display capacity in decimal. Even though in binary you have more bytes, the decimal representation of a Gbyte shows greater capacity. In order to accurately understand the true capacity of your disc drive, you need to know which base unit of measure (binary or decimal) is being used to represent capacity. Another factor that can cause misrepresentation of the size of a disc drive is BIOS limitations. Many older BIOS are limited in the number of cylinders they can support.

    Motivation for Proposed Prefixes for Binary Multiples
    Once upon a time, computer professionals noticed that 1024 or 2 10 (binary) was very nearly equal to 1000 or 10 3 (decimal) and started using the prefix "kilo" to mean 1024. That worked well enough for a decade or two because everybody who talked kilobytes knew that the term implied 1024 bytes. But almost overnight a much more numerous "everybody" bought computers, and the trade computer professionals needed to talk to physicists and engineers and even to ordinary people, most of whom know that a kilometer is 1000 meters and a kilogram is 1000 grams.
    See these two pages at Seagate for better answers >>>
    Why does my hard drive report less capacity than indicated on the drive's label?
