    common... give a solution... I would even be happy with "yeah, it just doesn't work, buy something else"

    I've got a workaround guys!
    Installed Vista 32Bit, its a bit buggy especially my ATI Driver but Prime works now for about 1 hour!
    My Windows 7 64 Bit crashed after max. 5 Minutes of Prime95!

    hmm 1hour aint that long ofcourse.... how long is the max you could run it atm?

    and vista :o.... I'm wondering what the difference could be (I already tried XP and Linux without success)

    Tested for about 3 hours last night.
    With Win7 my system never works so long!

    After this test, i've installed Vista 64Bit and got the same problems like before.
    Prime95 crashes with hardware failures and i've got BSOD (0x0A & 0x1E).
    After renaming secdrv.sys to secdrv.sys.bak the system seems to be stable.
    You can find this file in windows/system32/drivers.
    It is the SecuRom driver, a copyprotection from macrovision!

    This file should exist in Win7 to, so give it a try and let me know if it works for you guys!

    *edit:
    You have to rename it in safe mode! (press F8 while booting!)

    *edit2:
    Renaming the driver doesnt fix the problem but after installing sounddriver, Prime95 crashed again and again after seconds.

    Dear all,

    I execute the stress test (Prime95 + Furmark) for a long time for checking this issue, but I still cannot see the unstable symptom at our side.
    If possible, please try to replace another memory to check if the symptom is related to the specific memory module.

    If the unstable symptom still occur at your side, please kindly contact me via PM.
    I'll assist you in further.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Thank you very much!

    Have a nice day
    ASRock TSD
    Emily

    WOW !
    New bios ! Just saw that :D
    I haven't used my computer in the last 2 months, just today I turned it on. I will be upgrading to v 1.90 with stock settings for RAM. Now I'm using XMP Profile with 1.65V and it's pretty stable as far as I can remember. I will keep you posted with the results.

    Any news?

    After a week I still got no response (PM).

    However after that new bios, I can play games for 2-3hours before the systems reboots.

    So looks like the new bios did something, but just not went "all the way".


    Any one else that still has some trouble?
