ah... dunno.. both IDE.. how would i do that?


Well i got a screen shot of my 2.7 run and it lasted 3 hours. I went to up it lil more.. 2.8 and i noticed it wasnt running good. When to back it down, lower than 2.7, since i want to keep it there... OS corrupts again.


Odd? to me it is.. But im getting tired of reinstalling this and im gonna bow down and let this pass. Unless you'll accept a simple screen shot of CPUz and PC probe of cpu temp and vcore.lol

:unsure: What?


Did you write 0s to the drive before formating? If you are having trouble with the OS corrupting I would do that this time before formatting. You might also be sure to do a long format and I'm sure your using NTFS and not Fat32.


Your motherboard would have to have raid or you would have to buy a raid card. What mb is it again?


Anyway just set it where it's stable and working. When the time comes you can enter you score regardless of what your clocked to. :)

looks like it does from newegg specs.


I guess Max is right.


Copied this from Newegg:


Storage Devices

PATA 2 x ATA100 up to 4 Devices


SATA 1.5 Gb/s 4


Yup I believe you could configure those 2 drives in RAID. Just to be extra sure, Shogan what do you say.. :rolleyes:

I know how ya feel miggs. :( The first Pit contest I participated in I think I came in 188th. Heck, I don't recall there being any prizes, either. But I got something out of particpating. (Although I think it was an insatiable desire to always be upgrading...) I know it probably sounds pretty corny, but I just enjoy the competition. Back when I used to build and run street rods, I was always looking for a race. And although winning is a nice feeling, if I had lost every race I still would have kept on doing it, because what I enjoyed was the racing part of the whole deal, the speed, the power, the grease under my fingernails 24 hours a day....


Things haven't changed much. I still get spanked when I go up against the Big Dawgs, but it's worth it to me just to be able to run in the same pack. And every now and then I'll hit another personal best, which just keeps me pushing for more.




But it is true.....


If you're not the lead dog the view never changes. :P



Don't ask me how I know this.... :thud::rofl3:

Don't feel bad Miggsy. Last big "contest" we had I killed a Motherboard. :D


I'll tell ya one thing. I learned more about overclocking and tweeking from the 3 or so contests I've been in then I'd have ever learned in school. So that kinda pays for the Motherboard. ;)
