I just got my new p5ne sli mobo, 4GB patriot DDR2 800 ram, and an e6600 processor along with vista 64 bit.
i have done nothing to the system except update drivers, and that was a hassle because every 10 minutes something would happen where i would have to reset the computer. there are constant hang ups and blue screens and all sorts of b/s. i was told i'd have problems with x64 and i was (or thought i was) prepared for it... but this is just unreasonable. this OS is un-usable with the frequency of these lock ups.
what can i do? like i said this is a clean install (1-2 hours ago...)
[CPU: e6600 @ 3300 MHz] // [MB: ASUS P5N-E SLi] // [RAM: Patriot 'eased latency' PC2-6400 @ DDR800 5-4-4-12-2T] // [GPU: 8800GTX @ 650/1000/1600 (volt modded)] // [HDD: 2x Cavier 500GiB stripe] // [Chassis: Thermaltake Armor VA8000 (black)] // [PSU: Aspire(Apevia) 680w] // [OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64][Cooling: water cooled GPU and CPU]
^ (9/7/2010): Ha, I remember when that was the stuff. My water cooling has since leaked and fried my mobo. So now I'm rocking an MSI laptop with an i5 430m :)
