    Guess I'm gonna have to stick with upgrading the CPU.

    I bought a total of 3 OEM Conroe E6700's. One in my present system. The other 2 I used in the 965P DQ6 boards that I was having problems with (memory problems no doubt). The other 2 have hardly been used. Would like to sell all 3 (yes, even the one in my system right now)so I can upgrage to a E8400 or somewhere thereabouts.

    I still got one of the 965P DQ6 boards. Gigabyte tested it and it's A Okay. Might as well sell that too.

    You see about half way down the webpage.


    The mods won't work on gigabyte motherboards as they use the CPU ID to determine the FSB, not the pins on the CPU.

    7 Sticks of crucial? Why so many?

    Good luck with sales, ebay may be better for you on the 6700's

    Some dude wanted me to build him 3 systems.

    We had thouroughly discussed all the details of the kind of systems he wanted. He was very happy with all of the components that I was going to use.

    After we agreed on a total price I went ahead and ordered all of the components out of my pocket. I had all 3 systems completed the within 2 weeks after receiving all of the components. I tried contacting this dude for several weeks with no success. I was like he vanished off the face of the earth. Finally I was able to talk with this guy's sister and it turned out that he was in jail pending some some serious charges.

    I was screwwed to say the least. Upwards of $5000 out of my pocket.

    I've been selling off bits and pieces ever since. All I've got left is the 1 GA 965P DQ board, the 3 Crucial Ballistix ( I forgot that I had returned the other 2Gb kit back to the vendor) and a 40Gb WD Caviar HDD.

    Why 3 Crucials left?? I used 2 of the 2Gb kits on my system before I got the Mushkins and one of the sticks turned up bad with MemTest. I tested it individually and It failed as soon as Memtest started. Tested it a few times after tweaking the voltage and it would still fail right off the bat. So I tossed it. The other 3 are good.

    Ouch!

    RMA those crucials that are bad and then ebay the replacements. Crucial has a very nice (And used OFTEN) RMA dept.

    Ohh, you tossed it! HAHA I reply before I read fully I guess!
