    ok. Heres the update. Tried another cord. Not as sloppy of a fit...so thats good. But didn't solve the problem. But I know what it definetely is now. My cpu cooler!! I wiggle it and bam...out goes the power. Its flexing the board!!! Checked and made sure all screws are tight. Any suggestions? Running a ZEROtherm Nirvana NV120 currently. Anyone like to reccomend a different cooler that isn't as tall or weigh less?

    Well I had to modify my side fan. It looked like it was pressing on a nub on the top of the cooler. Lets see what happens.

    Ok as requested here is my template of my current settings as well as a screenshot of memset. Seems to be running great not that I modded my fan. Any help in squeezing more efficient and more preformance from the ram? Everest benchmarks have it running good numbers, but I think they should be a lot better.

    With 2x2GB of 1066 memory, tRFC = 50 - 52 is usually stable. I'm currently stable with tRFC = 48. Lower = better memory performance.
    With 4x2GB, you might not be able to go as low, but you should be able to run stable with tRFC in the mid to upper 50 range. You will need to repeat stability tests each time you tighten your memory settings.

    Tweaking the Advanced Memory timings is very time consuming. An effective approach is to set Performance Enhance = Turbo and repeat your stability tests. I tried the Extreme setting once and my system failed to boot with this setting and booted with standard bios settings.

    Let us know how you make out.

    OK got tRFC to 54 and Performance Enhance to Turbo. Couldn't boot on extreme. Going to run stability now. Will update....

    Can't really advise what to tweak at the minute as I'm not certain of your templates accuracy. You say you're running 400 * 9, yet Host Clock Control is filled out with 449 MHz.

    I'm not being awkward, it's just if those things are filled out wrong, is the rest of it accurate?

    Sorry about that. Took a generic temp and filled my values. Corrected it now. Anyway, couldn't get Prime to run more than a few passes with tRFC @ anything in the 50's. Set it at 62 and running prime. Just passed all test including the 896K and I'm on test 6 of 768k with no problems so far!!

    Getting what thing to install?

    If you want some help with something you're going to have to be a bit more specific than that.
