Hey TJ, I haven't tried reducing my ram. Either way I need all of it to use with editing software and such.
I've already sent the board back to...
Yeah I did, to the latest beta bios. Errors happened before and after the update.
No RAM errors with memtest86 with everything on auto.
The PC froze again at stock. So I have changed back to my old motherboard and voila! Everything is back to normal and no freezes. Guess its time...
A friend may buy my old rig, so I though of using the money to get a 990x. Good idea?
Memtest86 - Ran for 3 hours 1 complete test and another 50% - no errors.
It's weird. When I overclocked to 3.36Ghz I was able to leave Prime 95 blend running for 12 hours completely fine. Albeit with some...
I'm trying to raise cpu voltage to reach stability. If it doesn't work I'm going to revert to my old Motherboard and test.
I'm back to stock voltages and clock but still have freezing issues. I've also been getting BSOD code 0x000009c. I'm definitely screwed.
What would be a recommended upgrade then? i7 950?
Edit: I'm in a huge pickle now. The computer has been freezing periodically after some time...
This CPU seems very power hungry. I can't go to 170 BCLK without the computer locking up - that's at 1.4v.
I managed to undervolt it to 1.11 @ stock speeds and left it on IBT overnight. No crashes temps stable 40-45c.
So I tried ocing using the links...
My wife was playing minecraft on my rig yesterday and I saw a few black triangular/distortions on screen which never happened on 310.70, only on...
Actually, this is an interesting thread. I think it's possibly a driver issue, if not, I too will be RMA'ing my card.
My wife was playing...
Cool, thanks a bunch Veteran.
My board arrives tomorrow, I have a lot of reading to do...
I'll let you know how I get on :)

Found it on another thread actually. :)
Ah, thanks Veteran. My CPU is actually cooled by a corsair H80. Temps currently range from 30c idle to 48c under 100% load.
No help? I'm getting the board sooner than I thought. I'm getting it next week.

I'm going to overclock my i7 920 at the beginning of next month. I'll be getting a GA-X58A-OC to finally complete my rig and my i7 920 has a C0/C1...
Damn, I joined on the 30th. :(
Never really had the chance to play it either because of my previous card - HD4850.
