Thread: its a little weird

    heres my overclock job that turned out a little weird. i boosted my voltage from 1.750 to 1.870 and it ran like a beauty for about 30 mins then crashed. no before all you guys say i need better cooling i checked my temps and they were very reasonable i know this sounds like a heat related problem. and these lock ups started before i changed the multiplier or fsb. so it seems it doesnt like the voltage. anyone know whats up here? or tell me if u need more info??thanks

    It's most likely the fault of ya motherboard as ECS lacks the quality required for darkside adventuring (I had a K7S5A and it was one POS).

    I had an ECS K7S5A and it was beyond decent for me w/ the latest modified HoneyX BIOS for added stabibility .

    Lol I would really like to hear about your experiance w/ the POS, as I hear you mention it every once in a while, and hinted that you would like to snap it in half :laugh: .

    Actually one time my friend had this TERRIBLE pinegroup soundcard, that would literally take his whole computer down, and crash it like 2x what normal Win98 does. We brought it down to a baseball field and poured smokeless powder all over it, and watched the 3 1/2 foot flames burn. <InsertOfficeSpace'DieMotherF***ers'>We made some harsh comments toward that true POS...</InsertOfficeSpace'DieMotherF***ers'>

    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.
