Default 3dmark06

why does 3dmark06 sometimes quit during either the first or second cpu test? Not a BSOD or lockup just goes back to desktop and windows says 3dmark06 has stopped working. Any ideas?

Rather than crash your computer, windows kills the program.

3Dmark06 stresses Video card, Memory, North bridge, Cpu, pretty much everything all together.

I havent been able to complete a 3dmark run at 4ghz in a while, its just been too hot. I pretty much run at like 1.55v core to get there. Its only supposed to be a high of 62 today, and it got down into the 50s last night, so my apt is in the 60s. Trying to make a 4ghz run with it being almost 80F just doesnt work Hoping to reclaim my #1 position tonight.

you should try running it w/ as little processes as possible. Have you tried adding alittle more nb voltage since you are running 4x1gb sticks which makes it harder to oc.
