Im having a nightmare with this little combo at the moment!!
The MSI Neo2, 3500+ Winchester and OCZ Platinum 3200 Rev.2 (TCCD) work amazingly with the stock cooler, had them upto 225fsb with stock volts and 2-2-2-10.
However, after I'd got the Puppy running I thoughth.. C'mon is Mach II GT time!! I wanna see 3ghz! Then....
...Oh no!! either this Motherboard or this Winnie doesnt like the cold... It simply will not post with the Mach II cooling it! PC Fires up but no boot (cant ofter get to Bios either).
I havent tried flashing the Firmware yet for the Mach II to the 821 Firmware but I will. The reason I dont think the firmware is the issue is because I removed the evap head bu kept the Mach II connected to the PC. Turned the Mach II on, temp dropped to -33.c and then the PC started (I was cooling the CPU with a 92mm Tornado blowing straight at it - no HS
) and the little blighter boots without problem straight into Windows?????
I know this board is OK with Subzero temps as Ive seen loads of you using it however, I wonder if the Winchester simply cant operate at them?
Anyone able to help??
