i dont know if it would be your RAM sounds like more of a software problem

I've already sent it back to the manufacturer and received the new stick back..it's in my system right now running at PC2700 speed so it could have lower timings and so I could have a total of 768mb of RAM and my CPU at 2.5GHz with the entire system running 333FSB for now...runs pretty smooth..can't wait to get a 1gb kit of XMS Series PC3200 and then it'll really fly

hehe, that xp-m of yours is a real success story, i cant wait til i drop some cash on an nf7-s v2 mobo, and push mine to the limit... its getting a little colder around here and winter will definitely work in my favor, thinking about trying the shumway idea for starters and maybe modifying it to work more safely, ill photograph and post all i do tho

Yeah I definitely have to give it to old man winter, because otherwise I'd have to keep the fans on full blast to keep the Temps down..

Leonidas...btw I closed that AMD vs Intel thread because it was getting really ridiculous between you two. Please do not fall into the trap of someone trying to start flame wars as it'll just lead to warnings for both people...lines like 'captain dlp****' we can do without
