    I run my game in DX11 mode even though I have a DX10.1 card and it runs butter smooth.

    It's actually advantageous if I run in DX11 since it does better multithreading and actually use DX10.1 while DX10 seems to only use DX10.0.

    I´ve spent a whole yesterday afternoon experimenting.
    No matter what I do it just keeps crashing...

    So I just set memory to 800 mhz and it works flawlessly.
    I can do with CPU and NB whatever I want, the game is rock solid with mem. @ 800 mhz

    How do you set it that high?
    I was under the impression that NB maxes out at 2700 and ht stays at 2200 maximum...
    Guess I have A LOT to learn :)

    ht and nb like mem double up. 2600x2 = 5200. So you tried lowering it. Did you see if your mem is running in t1? What are your rated timings and what are they all at? auto? manual clocks and if so, what parameters? What kinda temps do your northbridge put off?

    I tried NB from auto to 2700, HT from auto to 2400, one step at a time.
    Memory is manually set ofcourse :) at 5 5 5 15 22, 2T and 2.10 V.
    I also tried 5 5 5 18 22 but makes no difference.

    I´ve just read psyclone´s overclock guide and I think I should turn that Channel Interleaving thing off.
    Will try that once I get home from work :)

    hmmm... NB temps... I think around 30-38. not 100% sure.
    I was thinking of installing a small fan on NB heatsink (it has predrilled screw holes)

    Aha!!! Try setting the TRC from 22 to 31. I've had this issue as well, not with BC2 but with Prime95.

    My setting is 1066MHZ at 5 5 5 18 31, 2T 2.10 V for corsair XMS2 DDR2.

    EDIT: forgot to mention that the mem spec is 5 5 5 18 22 2T @ 1066MHZ. but for some reason, it won't stable at 22, so I tried 31 and it worked for 1 year now.

    um....no. I've been running DX11 for 6 months now and the game has never crashed. None of my friends have had any crash issues either.

    Interesting... turning off channel interleaving did not make it stable but degraded performance on my system...

    I tried TRC 31, no help :/

    Dominators V 1.2 are supposed to be Micron D9 chips, right ?

    If so, what latencies am I supposed to set @800 mhz ?
    I meen tight as Brianna Frost´s ass :)

    Well its really up to your system. Try psyclone guide in tuning the RAM timing.
    One notch at a time, and don't forget to write the last known stable setting.

    I´m currently running it at 800 mhz with 2T 4 4 4 13 with 0.8 V.
    No problems in sight.
    I´ll try to raise the frequency with those timings and see where it gets me.

    what.. .8v? it should be 2.1v for 5-5-5-15 @1066mhz.

    sorry, 1.8 V for 800 mhz :)

    according to this link: http://ramlist.i4memory.com/ddr2/
    I am suposed to have handpicked D9 Microns, right ?

    print on my memory module says the default voltage is 2.1 V for 1066 mhz,
    and everywhere I look on the internet, default voltage for Version 1.2 Dominators is 2.2 V.
    Strange...

    So why dont you try giving it the rated voltage at the rated clocks n see how that pans?

    I´ve been doing that just before I opened this thread :)

    1066 Mhz, 5 5 5 15 22, 2.10 Volts and everything is running smooth except this game.
    It randomly CTDs.
    Once I back down to 800 Mhz the game runs smooth without CDSs

    Not that its a problem solver in this situation, but i had the same crash problems with the game, everywhere i read said things about realtec sound driver problems causing the crashes. A friend of mine with same exact setup didnt have the problem, but he didnt install the asus/realtec drivers from the install disc instead he let win7 use generic drivers. So i reinstalled and let win7 use its own drivers and all is fixed. It never crashes anymore. Hope ya get it solved so you can play trouble free!

    I always get the drivers straight from Realtek - never have any issues, and they are incredibly good at updating their drivers, unlike another certain brand of audio chip manufacturer...
