    Hardware failure detected Core 4 stopped after 2min.

    Is your ram Memtest86+ 5 Passes stable? If so, then you likely need more voltage to something, I would start with .25-.3 MCH and see if the error is the same, if so you may need more Vcore then

    Yes my ram is tested with memtest86+ for many hours and no errors.
    Ok...I'll try more voltage etc and see what happens.

    TY!

    Hi there...not so good... I have even raised the CPU voltage to 1.4000 in bios and MCH to 0.3 and still unstable in prime etc. :/

    What does 1.4 in the BIOS give you in windows?

    How does Prime fail and after how long? Memtest86+?

    It fails with same error message as before..look up 5 post or so. ;)
    Core two error after 9 min.

    1.4 gives me 1.360 in windows.

    And yes memtest86+ as i wrote in the other post passes without any errors.

    How many passes of memtest86+ do you do? I am just trying to help, I asked again because I was not sure how long you did tests, or if they were failing the same n all.

    Try using more FSB or MCH, and also try getting off the 1066 strap, use a 333 or 400 strap Multi from this image since your board does not properly show them to you >>>



    At the settings you are using now, you may be fine just by moving to a 333 strap multi. Normally if you have a choice, a 400 strap would be your best bet and at that FSB most boards would have a bit of a time to get a 333 Strap stable, for sure a 1066 strap may be the whole issue as that is a high FSB for that strap. Try 2.40 or 2.66 if you have 2.66

    Ok..ty for your help mate.
    I ran the memtest86+ for 4 hours and no errors.
    I have set the MCH to 0.3 and FSB to 0.3 also and now I have set the CPU volt to 1.374 as it shows in windows and it feels a little to high! :/
    I'm going to try a different strap on the memory and see what happens....thank you again for your help.
