Thread: Anyone ever had this problem...




  1. #1

    I was meddling around with my rig a bit more than I should have today, trying agressive memory timings and breaking the 3.4ghz barrier (trying to get it stable)... Managed to get windows to boot at 3477mhz from 2533, w/ ram from cas2.5-7-3-3 to 2-7-2-2 7.8usec, and xp booted, got to the welcome screen, started loading my startup programs then halted. So I figure oh well, worth a shot, time to bump some stuff down and try again. Well anyway, making a long story even longer :D when I rebooted, set ram timings to 2.5-7-2-2, had same problem, so i went to 2-7-3-3 and when I got to just before the welcome screen it just hung. Now no typical hanging @ welcome screen symptums (eg., i could move my mouse and my keyboard, but ctl+alt+del didn't do crap, neither would anything else (but caps, num and scroll lock lights lit up and turned off when i pushed 'em again)). Anyway, closing this out, turns out my filesystem somehow got corrupted. Now I've had to hard boot my machine several million times over the years with several different filesystems (this time being ntfs) but this was the first time I tried an insanly high overclock w/ agressive ram timings in windows (clocked a celeron 366 @ 733 a long time ago w/ some agressive ram settings but was running freebsd on that box at the time); and now, my u160 scsi hdd (ibm deskstar) is dead. Low level formatted it this afternoon and tried accessing the disk, and nothing. The SCSI controller card (adaptec 29160 (also a year old)) sees the drive, and can low level format it, but when I get to the partition selection screen, it's only showing my 4gb backup scsi drive.

    Anyone had this sorta problem w/ doing something stupid like this? (BTW, proc and ram both check out 100% okay, as does video, wireless lan card, scsi controller card, mainboard, etc.)

    lessons learned....next time try doing that to a 2.8 with water cooling I'm not sure what you have,but over clocking a 2.5 to 3.4 is usualy a job for water cooling cases

    No suppliers I deal with regularly here carry water cooling supplies (Asked on several occasions and got the usual generic "They're not proven so we don't carry 'em")... When I replace my cooling ima just gonna go w/ a phase changer and try and get this beast to 4ghz :D

    Well I just figure, if I do fry my proc that's all fine and dandy, by the time I'm ready to push 4ghz, I should have enough saved up (and they should be out by then) to pick up a 3.2ghz p4 running w/ the 800mhz fsb 'n a new board 'n such :)
