Windows 7: replacing my xfx nforce sli 750i mobo: Advices

Keep the CPU voltage at 0.1250 then, to be on the safe side.

The heat from the RAM will just be from the voltage increase. It will be fine as it's at the manufacturers specification.

Do you mean the WEI button doesn't launch the WEI at all when you click it, too?

Well, now I ám goingto change from [0.0875V] to [0.1250].

And to learn a little
, are you willing to explain me a little bit what I am doing here? for my general computer knowledge.
Questions:

I guess the higher the voltage the faster the proscesor, right?Why are the timings that we just set no into my RAM specs??
It says in the specs page that my memory timing is: CL 5-4-4-15 (CAS-TRCD-TRP-TRAS).

Is the cpu voltage open to experimentation?

Is this overclocking, what we are doing?

Oh!! I forgot, yes, when I press the RATE THIS COMPUTER button it doesn't do anything.


Thanks, I am just willing to learn here....

Increasing the voltage doesn't increase the speed of the processor. Before, your processor wouldn't have been getting enough power, which is one of the reasons why you might have been having problems.

I'm not sure where chev found the RAM timings for you to set, but feel free to change them to what they should be if you feel like experimenting, though higher timings are usually safer. The timings are the latency timings for the cycles the RAM does for each part, so a lower latency is better, but the difference to what you've set and to what the manufacturer's specs are will be negligible.

You can experiment with the CPU voltage if you like. You can lower it a bit to a voltage that still allows your computer to work fine and stable.

You're not overclocking the processor. Overclocking the processor would be increasing the speed it runs at. It's up to you if you want to venture in to that area. The overclocking section on this forum has a lot of information on it.


Though it's good to hear your PC booted up without a problem

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,
 
 

Usually just using the VID of the cpu will work fine for CPU Vcore. You can get that info from Everest "picture below". Intel range for VID on this cpu. http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id...ec-codes=SLB6B

Yes I looked up the specs for the memory but I'm not sure if I had all the info about this particular memory to begin with. I was also under the impression that increasing the NB "MCP" voltage caused instablity which is very strange, maybe this has changed because of working with the Vcore?

The 1.5 suggestion was for the regular Nvidia boards, the adjustment range for this board is different than the Nvidia boards which is how I arrived at the 1.3 MCP setting. That is why I asked for the bios pictures.

I looked up typical MCP voltages for this board and the usual is 1.3 for MCP when running 8GB of memory on this particular board. I would need the exact model number of this OCZ memory in order to find accurate info about the timings and voltages.

If the WEI won't run it's usually because the system isn't completely stable but usually it will start and then give an error message.

Sorry been a little busy lately.

ok problems arised!

Computer is just freezing on me..
I don't think the RAM temperature is normal, it is too hot, after 2 seconds it cannot be touched!

The exact model number of my memor I think is located at SANDRA's, I post it at the beggining of this..

Well, thanks...

it freezes, I had it copying some files, then it froze, then tried reset it and froze with the black screen, then reset again and froze seconds after launching the desktop.. turn it off
Touched the ram memory and it was burning!

thanks

I don't think it's your RAM. Your RAM does have heatsinks on, which are designed to take the heat off the actual RAM modules. Your RAM is designed to run at 2.1v, so it will be fine. Try increasing the CPU voltage a couple of more notches.

Have you also had a look at updating your BIOS as well? That might help with problems.

ok fine,!! I think the problem was a bad HDD that I recently attached, I had it there in my room and decided to use it, but it seems it is damaged, I remove it and no more freezing..
I also updated bios.

THANKS a LOT Man!!, I am not going to worry about how hot my ram is anymore, and no more paranoia while making music, awesome!!!

Good to hear it's running well for you now

Out of curiosity, which SATA port did you attach that HDD too? If you look at the SATA ports face on, I attached a HDD to the top left one of the 2 "stacks", and the computer would freeze randomly for me as well. I found out that "stack" of SATA ports had come loose from the board so there was a loose connection. The SATA port underneath that port worked fine, but if anything was connected to the top one it would freeze the PC. I thought I might have just damaged it myself from pushing too hard by accident when connecting it, but it's interesting you mention the same problem with a HDD causing freezes.

Though enjoy! Saved yourself from having to fork out for a new motherboard.
