Crashing in games
My Computer crashes in games and one time in 3d mark requiring a reboot every time. Half-life 2 and counter strike source will only last about hour or so before crashing, same thing with doom 3.
3800+ x2 overclocked to 2.6 1:1
2 GB mushkin eXtreme Performance DDR 500
DFI LANPARTY nF4 SLI-DR
eVGA 7800 GT OCd to 491 and the memory to 1.20
Windows XP home SP 2
I have the latest drivers and updates and everything including the OS.
I think the problems are overclocking related. I lowered the overclock to 2.4 which under clocks my ram to 240 as apposed to its factory defaults of 250. Same problems as before. I find it hard to believe that cpu being overclocked a mere 400 MHz is the cause for all my problems, but it maybe. I upped the voltage on the cpu to 1.40 V and the Voltage on the ram to 1.9 V. So I dont think its a voltage problem, my cpu even under full load never goes above 40 C, and idles at about 32 C, The ram doesnt go much above 40 either. The Video card temperate maxes out at about 50 C. So its not a temperature problem.
Any ideas of what my problem is here? Or is there any overclocking options that im missing that lead to system instability
