Recommended Posts

Current Settings

 

241x 10 at x3 LDT bus

PCI-E Freq 100Mhz?

EVGA 7800GT CO 470/1100 Stock 1.4V

now its 482/1200, and voltmodded bios to 1.5V i think or .5V i forget.

 

Anyway, after ive gotten this 3800 and oc'ed it, and i think i may of changed the pci-e freq i forget, now after 5minutes of playing Counter-Strike Source at basically high settings at 1204x768 or w.e my computer stops, goes black and restarts...

 

 

why? is my video card dying? is it too much overclocked? it does have the accelero x1, and the temps are not high *50C when playing i think.

Test your RAM with memtest and your OS stability with prime95.

 

If that works you can check your video card with the 3DMark series.

crap, i just did memtest, and it got like 7 errors at the end of Test 5.

 

i have a screenshot i can post up if needed, but it was like 0.0MB, 0.9MB, then good then bad, etc,etc.

 

 

What should I do? Can I RMA this ram or something.

Ok i read that this other guy had to have his at 2.7 or 2.8 v, and mine was 2.62 or w.e now its 2.7 will go play css for a bit see if it crashes then try memtest again.

 

also read that these sticks never should be "auto" on bios settings, and that if u leave the settings the same with errors they will grow?

Put your memory on a divider until you can get it stable at 1:1. At least then you can enjoy your OC (it'll only cost you a few % in performance).

Check-out the OC database for the same memory and try their settings. http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread...95&page=1&pp=15

Try OCZ's forum. Great support. Here's a DFI thread: http://www.bleedinedge.com/forum/showthread.php?t=11998

After you think that memory is stable (and even with it stable on a divider), make sure that your CPU is stable at the OC like this: http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=16445. It should run for at least 8 hours without any errors.
