    Simple, your AGP/PCI frequencies go off. Or, your mobo doesnt set the SPD right.

    the PCI bus frequency goes out of whack with the FSB being so high. As for the timings, that all depends on your RAM, some is 3-3-3-9 while others may be 2-2-2-6

    The same thing happened when I went over this dudes house to fix his computer. If your Motherboard has an 'ultra' option uncheck that, because it will overclock the proc. and the mem. Not all system components can handle this. Then you should be able to get full speed out of your RAMz0r! :afro:

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.
