    Maybe 1.26v then. VTT does not stand for itself and without tweaking MCH/CPU References it may actually cause the need for even higher VTT if set above Vcore.

    His memory is PC-8000 not PC-8500, and with 500FSB and 2.00D multiplier it is set at it's rated spec, DDR-1000.

    Funny, guess what guys. PSU on my box died as I was typing something else for this topic. While I was in the middle of typing, I got a corrupted screen, reached fast for my phone which has a crappy camera, I had to get really close to the screen or else it was hard to see.

    I actually had gotten this screen once before, actually only an hour or so before while testing the 500FSB OC - I had initially assumed it was caused due to incorrect memory timing, or due to the fact that VCORE and CPU VTT weren't in the proper range ratio. (I am aware however that when you typically see graphics corruption that it's the video card, but video card is not even a month old yet...and at that time wasn't overclocked)

    And to add to that, when I did OC card, I only did it via the CCC using auto-tune, and never did any actual gaming on the OC speeds.

    Anyways, after I got the picture, I turned machine off, drained CAPS, powered back on and was greeted with lovely continuous short beeps. As I reached for my motherboard manual, I am thinking, "Dear god, what the hell is this... all my voltages were well within safe levels."

    Bottom of the page: Continuous short beeps - Power Error.

    Hmm. I reset CMOS using jumper for 1 minute, same error. Strange thing though is that the machine actually seemed to power on while the beep code was going...(Fans were spinning MB phase LED was on, maybe PSU failed just enough to not be able to power video card)

    Hopefully it IS just the power supply, as I've had my eyes on another one for a while now.

    *sighs*

    By the way, if you're not sure of what you're seeing, yes, those are vertical gray lines in parallel running all the way across screen.

    I'd begin with checking that the video card and power connections are well seated.
    Turn off the monitor for a minute, and the usual rest, one stick of memory etc. before I blame the PSU.

    Checked all connections, they were good. I reseated video card anyways, and reset CMOS again.

    Same beep code, I just hope it IS the power supply and not the motherboard.

    You might try booting with a minimal hardware setup:
    The Minimalist Boot:
    Disconnect everything that isn't required to boot, including:
    Hard Drives, floppy drives, cd/dvd drives
    Mouse
    All USB devices including the mouse and keyboard
    All add-in PCI cards.

    You want to boot only with your cpu, PS2 keyboard, video card and only 1 memory module. That's it.

    If you need a new psu, check out
    • Antec TruePower New TP-750, TP-650, or TP-550
    • Corsair HX or TX series, the HX cost a bit more but offers somewhat better performance and features than the TX series.


    I recently bought the TP-750; superb reviews from JonnyGuru, Hardware Secrets, and PC Perspective.
    Best bang for the buck....top tier performance at a bargain price (usually about $105, often has a mail in rebate).

    New PSU arrived last night, rewired case including replacing a 120MM front fan which had a damaged wire (I had caught the wire on the HDD rail when removing it a while back, and it snapped. These fan wires are about 1mm thick, and are extremely difficult to strip since they're so brittle, I failed a few strips then got it to a point where it was adequate and patched it up with electrical tape for a temporary fix, but this was the perfect time to replace it with a new one).

    Once that was finished, had to deal with a fan short - I didn't solve this until morning (one of the fans was double wired). From the time without having access to my main box, I did my research on my laptop; once the system was up and running I had a much better sense of what needed to be tweaked.

    After some trial and error, I got the 8x500MHz OC up and running, and this time it seems to have some semblance of stability.

    Been running Prime 95 Blend - 2 threads, for about 40 minutes now. The last time I attempted to blend on the above OC, it failed immediately, and system was severely unstable.

    Of course this will need more more testing, but I believe I'm making some headway. I will post my template once Blend has ran for at least 5 hours without errors.

    P.S. As for me laying down the law on the failed PSU, I'm putting that off indefinitely. When system failed, I was a little worked up and now that I'm seeing a little more clearly, I have better things to do.

    Sorry guys!

    Had to deal with a matter, so had to stop the Prime pre-maturely, however it did run for approximately 3 hours (blend) without problems, this template is a baseline for my further tweaks.

    I just had an awesome install with some mushkin enhanced blackline, 8 gigs @ 1066. Slapped them, in set voltage, set timing, done! ud3p, e9550
    I like em easy... Upgrades too.
