UPS

Postby Goofydoofy » Wed Jan 05, 2005 2:10 pm

Boned again! I got my computer equipment and my case is destroyed!! Everything else is fine. So, I won't have another case, hopefully non-destroyed, until tomorrow. By the time I get home from work and put it all together, I'll probably miss the SSRA raid which pisses me off. Maybe I'll do a half day thing at work.

Thanks UPS for giving total disregard to the way you handle your freight once again.

All I can think of is Ace Ventura 1.

I remember seeing the intro for that movie the first time and almost pissing myself laughing.

Sorry goof ( That still sucks.

Case

Postby Goofydoofy » Wed Jan 05, 2005 5:16 pm

Ya know, WTF do I need a case for anyway? I can just hook all the shit up and let it sit on the floor while I raid. Hmm.

AGP

Postby Goofydoofy » Wed Jan 05, 2005 9:58 pm

I can't fucking win. The board lists a 8x/4x AGP slot. My card supports 8x. So I buy it. Now the BIOS and manual say it only supports 4x. WTF.

BIOS

Postby Goofydoofy » Thu Jan 06, 2005 9:27 am

That's not the deal. The BIOS is not the problem. I've sent messages to the mfg and the dealer and I'll see what they have to say about it. Each speed has a different voltage card. 2x is 3.3, 4x is 1.5 and 8x is .8 or some shit. The motherboard wll only work with 1.5. Maybe there is some secret handshake I need to do with the local super-spy hidden in the invisble hide-out some place to force it to work at 8x speed in 4x speed mode. After going thru everything in the manual, BIOS settings and website, nothing was clear except it supports ONLY 4x speed cards. I'm going to be WAY pissed if I end up having to send this shit back for the board I thought I was getting.

And if I'm REALLY lucky, the replacement case which I am supposed to get today will be all broken up also!

I would bet you won't notice the difference between 4x and 8x, I had the same problem with my 9700 Radeon running at 8x, but there was no way I was taking it all apart after the install.

I did find some cool drivers from http://www.omegadrivers.net for all ATI cards. Very tweaked out and with overclocking software. Basically just makes the card run better imho.

good luck either way.

Stuff

Postby Goofydoofy » Thu Jan 06, 2005 11:01 am

I'm not big on over-clocking as for one, it voids the warranty. For a $400 item, I'd rather not do that. I take computers apart and put them back together all the time. Problem happens when I don't get the shit I'm supposed to have when I want to put the stuff together again.

Case

Postby Goofydoofy » Thu Jan 06, 2005 3:36 pm

There isn't shit in this town to buy computer equipment. That is why I used the Internet. I'm taking odds that the third and final case will either be damaged or won't be here next day or both. Place your bets now.

If so, I guess I'm driving to Vegas.

I would have said the hell with it and used the old case after the second one came in damaged.
