Actually I didn't pay any attention to the fact that the bottom of the heat sink wasnt completely flat and part of it sitting on the cpu holder...
I need to pay closer attention to the simple things.

Thanks Illuminati!

Oh, I forgot to add...whenever it shuts off I have to completely take power away from the power supply in order to turn it back on.

I will try another power supply, thanks.

I received my new mobo. It's an a7n8x-e deluxe instead of a straight a7n8x deluxe. I'm having problems with it. I hooked everything up and it would power up and get to the bios splash screen and then power off. I tried disconnecting everything except the video card and the floppy and it still does t...

Has anyone tried pest patrol? I've found that it finds a lot more than either spy bot or adaware. The only problem with it is that the free version doesn't remove the stuff for you, you have to do it manually or buy the full version.

I don't really remember what year it was but I started on a Commadore Vic 20, which was pre 64. Then we did buy a C 64 and I remember programming games for that thing from code listed in magazines. I made a pretty cool football game and an asteroids like game. After the 64 we went to some off brand ...

I tried stepping the fsb all the way down to 190 and it still crashes in game. So from the tests I've done so far, I think I'm going to rma the mobo, since my processor and memory work fine in another exact same a7n8x. I'll let you guys know if that turns out to be the culprit. Thanks for all your h...

Or maybe there is a smaller planet, closer to the size of earth that they will later find to be in between this one that takes 10 days to orbit and the larger one that takes 650 days to orbit. From this article it seems to me that technology is not quite there to find planets close to the size or ea...

Well, I stuck the ddr400 xms memory in my machine and it still crashed. I stuck the processor in a mobo the same as mine, it also contained the same ddr400 xms and it did not crash, ran fine. So the most apparent thing that would be wrong is there is a problem with my mobo? What do you guys think? I...

I have a friend that has the exact same mother board, I'm going to pop my processor in his system and see if it has problems. If it doesn't I'll pop his corsair xms mem in mine, see what happens.

No, Samsung.

Seems to have still gotten errors in the memtest after I set the processor at 400 and the memory at 333.

Now I'll run it whith the pocessor set to 333 and the memory set to 400.

I ran twelve of the default tests on it and test 4got 124 errors, test 5 got 2 errors and the rest were 0 Here's where the memory test worked, and I listed my results. When I run the processor at 400 and the memory at 333 it still crashes. The only thing that runs stable so far is processor 333 and...
