    Default My problem.



    As many probably know there is a hughe abundance of forums with people screaming about there new X-FI / Xonar soundcard's crackling in Vista.

    Today I think I narrowed it down to overclock's? :confused: Strange I know.

    My Q6600 will boot on 3.2Ghz v1.3 / 1333Mhz OCZ 2GB Memory.

    Thing is in Vista my sound is like a symphony from snap, crackle and pop cereal.

    *Bangs head against the wall picks up a hammer and bashing ones self in the head several times.*

    I've tried everything on these forums to get a stable overclock with this sound card.

    Nothing seems to work, my motherboard manufacturer states its power fluctuations. Ok fair enough so I defaulted everything in my BIOS had to give me memory 0.025 more volts has EVGA need to fix that problem with a new BIOS update.

    Sound is bit for bit perfect, I'm a happy camper.

    But there aint any point in having water-cooling running on stock now is there.
    I need some advice has to overclocking with out any adverse effects. I've tried all sorts of overclocks, with all sorts of voltages pumping through them.

    None seem to work - wheather this be attributed to a bad CPU or something to do with the PCIe slot on my motherboard I'm not sure.

    To say the least a successful overclock-with on board sound works with no added gimmics.

    Also to add my memory is rated 1800Mhz @ 8 8 8 24 I can get it to boot fine, also do random tests with 3DMARK / SuperPI / Sandra no crashing but run a game and after about 1 hour or more bam no error / no BSoD / no beeps / just straight back to the BIOS boot screen kicks back into windows

    well overclocking is basically increasing the amount of electricity being sent and how much data is being sent in that same amount of electricity.

    mixing in a little chemistry lets say you have 1.3volts on the cpu, at that level the cpu can send 2.4GHz of data in that amount of electricity and the flow is still unsaturated. so you overclock it and find out at that voltage the max you can get is 3.0GHz. so at 1.3v the max saturation it can handle is 3.0GHz any more and its supersaturated and bsod you hehe. thus to get more you give more electricity to increase the saturation max.
    (I just used some chemistry terms to explain the flow and max of the fsb, addressing bus, input bus in more simpler terms.)

    so it could be when you OC the cpu, ram,gpu, the sound card output to the flow of electricity (fsb, adressing bus, input bus) is being diminished by the more inputs or flucuations by the other components.

    Hope I didn't just write a whole bunch of "huh omg you just made me dumber!"

    ^^ that's didn't help him to solve the problem, noobs will have no ideas what were you talking about.
    Let make it short and sweet, your OC setttings are incorrect.

    What's your PCIE Frequency & PCI Clock Synchronization settings?
    If you leave these settings at Auto then it will creeping up proportionally with your FSB. This will cause your grfx and other PCI components unstable.

    PCIE set at 100mhz or don't go over 110mhz is max (this will OC your video card a little bit).
    PCI set at 33mhz (period) if you don't want to kill your hardware.

    Good luck and let us know if you solve the problem.

    Erm I shall try the PCIE / PCI speeds never thought of upping them, didn't realise you had too.

    But I understood that thread even though it didn't help me.

    I've done a dual boot now to see if my mobo manufacturer is correct in saying that Vista is the problem because of their DirectSound emulation?

    What settings would you recommend for a Q6600 / 1800Mhz 2Gb mem to be voltz wise.

    I have been using 2voltz for the memory to get it to post at 1800 with 8 8 8 24 timings.

    And 1.3 - 1.4 voltz for the CPU to get it to post at 3.2Ghz.

    Not sure if its stable though as my test's run fine but going in game and it crashes after an hour / maybe this is because of the PCIE / PCI thingy.

    Will get back to you.

    Erm, initial tests have proven that there is something wrong with the Vista sound emulation.

    I'm overclocked on XP SP2 without the PCIE tuned, my sound is perfect.

    Will test PCIE tuning and Vista tommorow its late now going to bed.

    Buh-bye

    I can't tell you much with your sound card. I'm using Fatal1ty Xtreme, no overclock issues with the Vista.

    Well my Vista is running with the overclock sound crackling and the PCIE mhz tuned up :'(



    *wants to throw PC out of window*

    Yet to try the overclock on XP install will do after this post and that I verify my benchmark of 3Dmark06/05 runs and the comp is stable.

    Sandra burn in test doesn't work for some reason getting a file not found error in the window?

    Any ideas?

    do you torrent? because I have noticed after I torrent for a while my sound gets all crackly in vista but not xp.

    for sandra I would say just do a clean re installation

    Torrents no what are these *looks to see if any tinternet coppers are watching*

    No tbh but I do dable a little bit in torrents not as much as newsgroups.

    My XP overclock is fine, Vista is a pain in the ****.

    I've downlaod a new copy and its still doing it its cracked maybe thats why ?

    I'm in constent talks with EVGA to try and resolve this my next test would be to run Vista overclocked and disable one of the GX2's and see if it goes away failing that remove one of them.

    After this I'll just give up run XP and sort out my game crashes in XP .

    My benchmarks running for 2 hours have no hiccups but games crash after 1 hour or so.

    Right sorted my games out in XP no no crashes was playing CSS with GB*UK for 3 hours great fun.

    And I've sorted the crackling out in Vista I had to disable a GPU so now I got 4 GPU's two of which disabled so I can listen to my music

    Drivers or OS need's updating to prevent me from having to do this.

    Buh-Bye
