Dont worry ATI is working on X900. The 7800 is just a 6800 chip in disguise. ATI crossfire soon boys. How is the 7800 a 6800 in disguise?! It seems to me to be a completely different animal! And a much better animal at that. The 6800Ultra has speeds of 1.1Ghz memory and 400 on the core while the 78...

The problem with just uninstalling SP 2 is that M$ is requiring it now. supposedly there is an application in the program which automatically makes it search for and upgrade. You can always turn off auto updater, but then you end up missing a lot of security patches and fixes. well what Im saying i...

didnt anyone thought of just simply uninstaling SP2? when it came out I did install it to try but decided it only slows down everything ,takes up system resources and other than that has no practical use. like for instance who would use microsofts built in firewall? almost anything else is better. s...

could the restarting (instability) be caused by overheating northbridge? (changed to a passive cooler from the original noisy IC7-G cooler). any suggestions? :?

It took my whole day.I was able to get into windows seamingly stable till 3.9ghz (1.58V) the heat wasn't an issue yet (44C idle/61C full load Pcmark05) yet at test nb.9 it would always shut off, beep, freez or mostly reboot. this was happening with anything above 3.8ghz wh...

thanks apoptosis. wow this answered my few remaining questions. I have a weird problem though: you said to set back the multiplier and even though the official web site (abit) talks about this option in the bios- its simply not there. should be in the soft menu right under the fsb/frequency but its ...

and got even higher. :) 3.8ghz @ 1.536V http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc?id=28522 I did, I think, reach the limits of my cooling because its 43C idle -but reaching 62C on heavy load. I guess I could get higher but I read that I should try to keep the temp. within 60C. maybe later- just to try the...

hey, I was able to solve the problem after reading couple of Sticky's posts on memory in the memo section. I had to fix my timings @ default 3-3-3-8 by changing it to manual. on the other hand I've read a review that said that you don't have to change voltage on this cpu till above 3.7ghz. well I ha...

I wonder if there's any truth in the rumour that if the mobo will support The P4c 3.2EE, then it will also support Prescott? The latest IC7-G BIOS supports the EE ersonally, I will believe they support Prescott only when I see one working. Intel will surely milk us for everything that they can. I w...
