Default Re: need urgent help with gtx 260

Strange problem and I had a similiar, have you get the Memory enough voltage and the MCH aka Northbridge.

On my P-45 DS3R i went nuts when I get it, nothing was stable and when I tried with just one mem stick, 2 GB it would work but as soon as I added the other 2GB stick it wouldent even boot sometimes and it hang upon say unrar or start a game. Then I found out that you must give the Northbrige more voltage then Bios default and voila, problem solved. And all this problem was without even overclock the Q6600!

Bro, its your PSU. I tried to warn you of this and I told you that no one else would even have a clue because most people dont understand that a Dual Rail PSU is the worst choice of PSU's for a system with high power draw.

What you are describing is an overloading on that second 12v Rail because there are not enough amps to suffice. One of your 12v Rails ends up being entirely wasted on the CPU alone leaving you with a meager 18amps for your Video card and whatever else is drawing power from the same rail.

Your simply cutting it to close and the PSU is breaking down on you slowly but surely just as I said it would.


A nice high powered single 12v rail PSU is the best choice because all of your components draw amps from the same rail and nothing is wasted.
