So I guess I'll be asking you questions..
Ya think you can help me a little bit?
about the temps, i just dont think that my readings are accurate. i think that core temp is probably closer than everest. core temp shows like 20* while playing bf2.
oh, yeah....it also games like a champ and has no hitches or stutters when playing bf2. which is on occasion an overclock-sensitive application.
sora is right i have a winnie 4200 and brisbane 3600.
there are several things to try. first, make sure your ht multiplier is set down to 4 (at least). for high overclocks you will have to set it to 3. this is the HT multi, not the cpu multi. this is likely your problem, as most amd's do not like a ht link over about 1000. so, if you go over 250, you need to set it to at least 4 (250 x 4=1000). i usually just set it to three, it does impact super pi time a little, but thats about it. not really a noticable difference.
second, take your ram down a notch, run it at a speed below its rated. ie if it is ddr 400, run it at ddr 333.
what mobo do you have?
