  1. Like I said speedfan is notorious for incorrect readings and the actual software that came with your board is gonna be designed to read for that board so it will be much better and clearly is far more accurate. And bios temp settings is the best way but usually the program that comes with the motherboard is gonna read from the bios anyway and possible with a small variant between the readings. The best type is the ones that read from the core itself unfortuanetly my board doesn't read from the core it reads from a temp sensor placed near the socket so my temps will show lower than the actual temp but only by a few degrees celsius.
  2. Speedfan is notorious for bad temp reporting. Try a temp program from your motherboard manufacturer it should give better results. And if you want even more reliable temp monitoring try a temp probe that goes into a drive bay and has a sensor attached. Just place the sensor on the cover of the cpu clamp thing-a-majig and make sure it does not contact the CPU at all.
  3. Dude you must have way to much money on your hands to spend 350 bucks on a remote. Share the wealth I'm broke!
  4. Yeah I'm on the 8 Meg also but I guess I have the FIOS crap. wOOt download at actually 1 meg+ off of my fileplanet account I got for free with my Comcast account.

  6. All apologies tommy I get confused from time to time. That post was for beathemdown.
  7. Tommy what you're gonna have to do is get a KVM switch and a VGA cable made for the xbox-360. A basic KVM switch you should be able to find for 20 bucks and the Xbox adapter cable is gonna run 40 bucks before tax. I just got my X-Box 360 yesterday and spent a good portion of last on the x-box forums to find this stuff out.

  8. I would if at all possible go with a higher grade of motherboard. I know that with asus if you go with a lower tier board the updates in bios are far less frequent then a higher tier board and sometimes you get problems from bios and if there are no updates then you would just have to deal. I will suggest the ASUS P5W DH or one of the p5b boards with the 965 chipset.
  9. Well I just want to state that I went from a 3.2 gig single core to a core 2 duo 6600 and I did see a 40-60 frame per second jump in all my games and more in others. So it's actually what you use your computer for as to whether you can consider it hype or not. I mean if your a IM or e-mail junky then yeah your 2 to 3 gig cpu is going to work great, but if you have other/higher demands from you computer then the dual core cpus are what you want.
  10. To answer your question Tommy it's a ASUS P5ND2-SLI. As near as I can tell any high-end motherboard is gonna support atleast that much. I would love to see a desktop with that much ram. I bet it wouldn't even run, lol.
  11. 2 gigs 667 mhz on my desktop and 512 333mhz on my laptop. The laptop holds 2 gigs and the desktop will hold 8 gigs wOOt.
  12. Maybe your neighbor has some nasty spyware/trojans on his computer. He may be a tech retard and not understand that his connection is slow. Maybe he thinks a 2 minute load time on his net surfing is normal. Just a suggestion.
  13. Here's a good one "If you're gonna be stupid, You've got to be tough!" ballista, at testmy.net 09/03/2006 Also "don't let you're alligator mouth overload your hummingBird a**!" which means don't sing it if ya can't bring it. quote from a seargent at work.
  14. Ouch can you say ARTHRITIS! I can't believe the monk isn't crippled with it in his finger.
  15. I've been using it for about a week and I'm loving it. And to you guys having things not display that should, just wondering if you have re-installed or updated some active-x controls. I did that and most everything works now. Still some things that don't but most do.
  16. Hey I sure hope you can get this figured out. I had this same problem when I had earthlink DSL. Everytime the phone even rang my modem would drop. So they came out and set up a seperate line one for data and one for my phone. After they did that it would only cut out if I used the phone instead of when it was ringing I would have to answer it or press the talk button for it to drop. They never figured it out, so after 11 techs and 3 months I just cancelled the service and went to comcast. I know you may not have the option so I really hope you get it figured out.
  17. Just so you know it's a 5 volt 2.5 amp adapter you're looking for. wOOt
  18. Yeah a new power bar just grab one from radio shack or somewhere.
  19. Kamikaze if you're having problems with your 624 cutting out try a new power source for it. I know the earlier versions of the router had horrible power sources that were prone to send to much current to the router causing it to overheat and cut out. Just something you may wanna try. I believe versions 1-3 are the worst for this. My brother has a version 4 and it has caused him no grieve whatsoever.
  20. Umm well I don't know what it does but I do know Comcast ran new lines to the pole near my house and to my house itself. And replaced something up there that the line between my house and that pole connects to. Kinda like a big box! But anyway I see you have dsl I shoulda payed more attention. With DSL service I have no idea. I know before I got comcast I had earthlink DSL and everytime I got a phone call it would knock my connection out. And they set up a voice and data box seperately and I still got the problem. They never figured it out so I went to comcast.
  21. I believe I'm supposed to be getting that in a couple of weeks. I cannot wait! Right now this is what I'm getting on the 8meg/76?kb package. :::.. testmy.net test results ..::: Download Connection is:: 8388 Kbps about 8.39 Mbps (tested with 12160 kB) Download Speed is:: 1024 kB/s Upload Connection is:: 759 Kbps about 0.76 Mbps (tested with 1496 kB) Upload Speed is:: 93 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net (Server 1) Test Time:: 2006/06/23 - 11:10am D-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-5MR29WFYK U-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-T8V7GX3WD User Agent:: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727) [!]
  22. I would have to say go with the dgl-4300 and also suggest leaving the linksys alone I had a linksys wrt54g it died after 3 months.
  23. I have had several of the same issues as you with the packet loss and bursting downloads. Comcast came out about 20 times before they realized the drop was bad. So they just put up a whole new drop and no problems now.
  24. That is definately true but for some reason this mobo doesn't like me or my ram. I just ordered new ram to see if it helps. It probably won't so I'll just go back to my old motherboard. Offer is still up if anyone's interested, it's a LGA-775 Mobo native ddr2-667 mhz. And just so everyone know don't use PQI ram with this board.
