    What is this "Resolution Error" you keep mentioning? I meant to ask before and forgot

    The PC boots ok, Windows start ok, but the resolution is set to something like 800x600 and I can't change it. Well in fact I can, but maximum is way below what I use (1680x1050 vs ~1400x??? offered as max).

    1.3V is middle of the road really, average. Only because I've seen 625 FSB in person on 1.26V though. It was stable enough to do 2 hours of Prime Large, 3.5 hours blend and a SuperPi 32M run. Got some games working too. 625*7 with water on a E8600 E0 known to do ~5GHz on phase. The NB was quite warm for that, and active cooling along with the standard sink proved fine in the short term. Shame I arrived when they'd finished all but the 32M run. I got to do some gaming though (4870 X2) and the thing flew. The kind of system that may be able to fully utilize a quad CF setup maybe, with the right driver support.

    625, jesus!! Some people are lucky.
    Back to my previous question.
    How am I supposed to test 4.2GHz and chipset stability both at the same time?

    CPU ref, does it have higher impact on stability than VTT or the other way around? I saw some guys use "normal" instead anything else.

    It's a two way street. It's possible to get an unstable config either by adjusting CPU ref wrongly at a previously stable VTT or Visa versa. They need to be adjusted in tandem.

    Then I got no chance to get stable chipset AND 4.3GHz CPU. No way.
    Well I don't mind though, realized I can get stable 4.01 with 1.32500 VCORE, so...

    Ahh ok, Thanks, I wasn't sure if you meant something like that or graphical distortions or corruption issues


    Odd to hear, and driver install does not correct that? Or does it only happen with those certain settings?

    It's a combination of settings. Right now I am back at stable combination of 1.26 MCH core and 1.22 VTT with 0.740 MCH ref (@1.2 VTT). Anything else gives me this.
