    any idea how to make the os use 8 cores/threads instead of 4 now, without reinstalling ?

    You could try these two things:

    First, run the Msconfig utility. It can be accessed using the Run command and typing msconfig. Click the boot tab, then hit the Advanced options button. Tick the Number of processors check box and set it to the maximum possible and hit OK. Back on the boot tab, check the Make all boot settings permanent then hit apply.

    If this doesn't get the right number of processors going, you can try a repair install rather than a full format. It might take almost as long, but should leave all your programs and most drivers in place.

    that was it (it was set to 4)

    prime64 crashed in less than a minute with 0x00000101.

    ill try more vcore, but i doubt that it will work at 4ghz with ht on :(

    i havent tested the cold boot issue yet tho...

    EDIT: with 1,45v it crashed with the c0000135 error (something about %hs)

    weir weird.

    ill see tonight if i get the cold boot thing with my current settings and ht off

    Yes, more Vcore is the likely solution. Don't have any experience with Core i7 personally, but often people including Lsdmeasap have given a list of stop errors and their likely cause.

    Hopefully 4GHz and HT will be ok with adjusted voltages. I've seen it done. Fingers crossed.

    it wasnt, at least not with 1,45v

    180x20 was the most i could get with ht in the past.

    191x21 with older bioses without ht

    now i hope the cold boot thing goes away

    buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

    disabling EIST and setting ram timmings like i was told to didnt fix the 0x000000f4 cold boot only problem :(

    ill have to start over and see whats might be causing this (final cpu speed, base clock, volts, etc) :(

    i Confirmed that 133x20 with all the other settings in overl****ed mode (volts, timmings, etc), did not present my cold boot problem.

    then i tried 166x20 and it DID present itself.

    I would REALLY appreciate some help :(

    EDIT:

    is there ANY chance this is a software problem? (that presents itself only with overclock present) ?

    im running windows 7, thats why i ask.

    You could always download a Linux live CD. Boot from it and you load up into a near fully functional OS. Ubuntu is nice and easy to use. I'm running Windows 7 too. The only time I've experiencd errors was while pushing to unstable clocks (I mean really unstable, like instant Prime95 fail, all cores). At unstable settings, task scheduler hangs if I try to restart, and clicking the force restart button results in a system hang.

    It's really puzzling that you seem to be (to me) 100% stable, from what you say about your stress testing. Which version of Windows 7 are you using? You can try the release candidate if you're not already running it. There is a way to upgrade from any beta version, but it requires modifying the RC installation .inf file (if you aren't keen on a fresh install).

    im on 7077, the error was present on previous versions too.

    before going to the rc (i was going to install 7126 really), i might try vista or some linux or OSx :P

    i will try some live cds, but i dont know if the error will appear, cause it seems to be related to the part of the chipset that controlls the HDDs, but only when overclocked.

    im 100% sure its stable, cause i have never seen a BSOD after leaving prime95 24 hours, same for memtest, and COUNTLESS hours of use, with some heavy virtuallization included, using all the memory, and stuff like that.

    whats more, as i said, if i go into the BIOS as soon as i turn it on, and leave it there for 5 or more minutes, and then reboot, the problem will not present itself.

    if its less than 5 minutes, BSOD.
