    I'd need to see your full settings really, might just be Vtt you need if that is the BSOD that you are getting (0x00000124)

    I think a 750W or so is a great starting point for any current/future build, anything smaller is going towards borderline and just asking for issues with current setups or future upgrades to the machine.

    Looks like Nickel020's message is cut off, whichever route you decide to go make sure you get 1.65V memory. You can use higher rated, but it must be able to run at lower voltages otherwise you are likely to run into issues you wont know how or be able to deal with.

    I did some 3 modeling before but not anymore, no photo or video editing so its mostly for games even thou I'm not playing so much on my PC anymore :P

    I do think Nickel020 is right with the i5 750 and P55 motherboard, then I can buy a new PSU and memory.

    However I did check out the PSU finder and my secondary PSU (corsair vx550w) would be enough. I calculated it with a i5 extremely overclocked (30% or more), 3 hard drives and a overclocked hd 4870 and it recommended a VX550W.

    If I changed to (prices may be off, converted from swedish crowns to usd):
    i5 750 240 SEK
    A Gigabyte motherboard (of course) 130-200 SEK
    Corsair Dominator DDR3 PC12800/1600MHz CL8 2x2GB (1,65v) 190 USD
    Guess I'll try my PSUs and then if they aren't good enough I'll get a new 750w + PSU. 135 USD

    Lsd: Which BIOS settings would you like? "baseline" settings, overclocked (which dosent work) or the optimized settings?

    Try using the 2.0D system memory multiplier, the B multipliers tend to cause problems at higher FSBs and this is probably what's holding you back.

    You could not get the fist set of settings to post even at 390 FSB? The only difference (other than the FSB) I see between the two is that the voltages are a bit lower in the second one, there must be something else you missed when you tried the first time.

    PS: I failed at Copy+Paste in my previous post, iw as basically talking about the 1.65V limitation.

    PPS: The Corsair VX550 is more than enough for any system with a single GPU, you definitely do not need a stronger PSU unless you decide to get an ATI 5970^^ You should get one of those wattage meters and see how much power your PC really consumes, it will be less than you think!

    0x00000124 means not enough Vtt voltage.

    Let me know what you settle in with after knowing that and playing a while then I'll help you tighten things down if you still need it.

    second settings, 400x9 crashes after ~30min of orthos aswell.

    Ill try upping the voltage a bit.

    Nickel: the tRead was set at 12 aswell and no execute memory to enabled, dunno if this matters

    ---
    I changed the memory multiplier to 3.33D and upped the voltage a bit, Orthos crashed after 53 seconds.

    Test 1, 4000 Lucas-Lehmer iterations of M19922945 using 1024K FFT length.
    FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4
    Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file.
    Torture Test ran 0 minutes 53 seconds - 1 errors, 0 warnings.
    Execution halted.


    ---

    lowered the voltage a bit and trying again.
    Update:
    400x9 with
    DDR3, PCI-E, FSB, MCH +0,15v
    CPU 1,325v

    Works pretty well so far, so I tried 420x9 and that didn't work. 0x124 error. Tried upping fsb, mch and cpu but it didnt work.

    This doesn't really make sense, 420x9 isn't that high an overclock for the CPU, and the voltages aren't too low. What temps are you getting? Use CoreTemp or RealTemp, not Easytune/Speedfan etc.

    Is the CPU a C0 or an E0 stepping (check CPU-Z)?
