Why would you get random crashes? I have no pagefile and vista is solid as a rock.

I never got any issues when I disabled paging file with 4GB RAM

Well I've had my PC set to 0 PF and no problems so far, and it seems to be running a little faster

Well I could rip apart your build, but it is pretty modern so it definitely isn't a hardware problem. You probably have something misconfiguration. Mak can tell you more.

As for the Zalman, they haven't changed their coolers since the P4 era, nobody recommend them anymore.
The 750iFTW gained the nickname FTL around here after it ticked off a lot of users.
And ditch the OCZ psu, get Seasonic or Corsair.

yea...if your RAM is crashing out when page filing is off that means once your RAM starts being used heavily it starts to malfunction. Dunno what the issue is though :\

Yeah its possible that your ram is either unstable from being run outside of its parameters or its faulty.

Default Re: virtual memory

What voltage is your RAM supposed to be running at?
a lot of DDR2-1066 kits won't run stably at 1.8V (which is JEDEC standard), and instead specify to run them at 2.0-2.1V or something (which you often have to do manually)

my DDR2-1066 RAM runs at 2.1V, BIOS defaults to 1.8V (though I knew that before I got the RAM)
