    Default XP-M2600 Slow!

    Hi I have just fixed up my pc see.... spec below.......CPU temp is 35deg

    but the best I have achieved so far is 220x11.......a bit dissapointing........
    if I go to 200x12 my system fails to boot fully and I get a weird screen with a grey background and loads of little triangles???? same on 200x11.5 & 200x13???

    I have removed the std n bridge cooler and I have cleaned it up and re applied thermal compound and replaced - memory timing 2.2.2.11

    Still no go ........ would my PSU be over stressed???? or is my board just a slow one............where do I go from here???? Any sugestions.....

    What voltages are you using?

    The PSU could be overstressed. Look in the BIOS and see how far voltages are from there designated levels. Having four hard drives, two of which are SCSI, isn't exactly helping power consumption. Normally I'd say it's fine, but the SCSI drives and cards might make it a little worse.

    Hi sorry about delay in replying............

    right so far I have managed
    198x12.5 @ 1.8v in bios with 2,2,2,11
    then
    200x13 @ 1.9v in bios with 2,3,3,11

    however I checked sandra 2002 and my 1.9v is reported as 1.86-1.87v
    when I tried 200x13.5 I got a black screen and alarms.....alternate beep...long short............

    I was thinking that maybe the 13.5 multi was dragging the voltage down.

    So my next thought was to use a spare ATX supply and use this just to run
    all my hard drives/fans/pumps..........and let the enermax supply the board .....clean and cool....................what do you think?????

    You had it at 1.9V? I wouldn't go any higher... Maybe go 1.875 and leave it there.

    But the PSU idea is a good one.

    Hi what does the Vdd voltage setting set on NF7S.............would it be the 'Northbridge'...............is this worth raising .....

    Woke up at night and thought about the following....................sad I know but interesting................

    Is there any risk associated with just stressing a PSU on the 12v side? + If the motherboard is on a different PSU to HD's.........and there is a slight voltage mismatch........between the 12v rails on each psu could this result in unpleasant consequences!!!!

    Regards
    Richard
