Windows 7: Proposed new build

Windows 7 Pro. 64/SP-1
 
 

Asus AI Suite's have done nothing for me except create problems.

For me all over clocking is done in the bios by me.
It takes doing a little homework and trial and error.
In time I find the sweat spot and just leave it alone.

On the flip side Jack I've run a select couple of components of AI Suite on my last two rigs and never had a problem. I'm not saying it's problem free as it obviously isn't, but it certainly isn't in the Gigabyte utility realms of BSOD hell.

I used ai suite 2 or 3 briefly
I ended up with a failed oc although I wasn't ocing anything really only modified some of the fans mode in bios and I believe had the machine on a performance plan.

But none the less found out these tweaking utilities can be problematic
If you've ever had a failed oc
You know the machine will pretty much make you enter setup with F2 and then you can make adjustments/ restore default..
Using a program in the oc depending on how crazy you get might be tough to undo the oc if you get into a failed oc loop :/

I prefer to just oc the gpu modestly "if" needed which not to mention a lot easier but for the most part not needed either unless running benchmarks which I'm done with them.

That's a known false positive across ASUS boards, I had that issue on my old M2A-VM board years ago when nothing was overclocked. A quick Google will bring up thousands of results.

Thanks I had never seen that doing any benchmarks and I did quite a few :/
Either way ai suite 2 or 3 triggered it from just the slight contradict in bios settings
So really what I gathered from it was use one or the other not both

Bios and gpu tweak is fine to me

I believe Steve warned me about these types of ocing utilities

I've still got AI Suite II installed on my personal PC (a good gen 2 system). I haven't had any significant problems. I've used it for fan control but could live without it.
I use HW Monitor when I'm running the CPU flat out for some time (eg. video encoding) to monitor fans and temperatures. I close AI Suite because it appears to conflict with HW Monitor and produce false Probe II errors.

Completed new PC build this weekend happy to report everything works perfect no problems.
Must admit was a bit apprehensive at the first boot.

Have just one problem my hardrive from old PC has a failed W7 install due to a faulty DVD drive and needs formatting to full capacity and expanding the system reserved partition.
Theirs plenty of info regarding this but am confused which method to use.

You want to do a clean install to this drive on the old PC?

You don't need System Reserved at all.

What "methods" are you referring to?

Why can't you format it to full capacity? What happens when you try?

What makes you think System Reserved (if you want to use it at all) isn't large enough.

More details needed.
