    Yeah, thats what I meant but didn't have time to say :)

    Alright, I did as beefy said and lowered my overclock and ran 3dmark03. I discovered it was actually the cpu that was causing my graphics to crash. I'm kinda glad it was a cpu problem instead of my precious video card. Anyways, I set the fsb to 166mhz which was stock fsb for my cpu and ran 3dmark03 thoroughly with no problem. Then immediately rebooted into bios and pushed the fsb to 200mhz and ran 3dmark03 and crashed almost instantly during the first loading screen of the benchmark. I tested this a few times, quickly as well so the card didnt have time to cool down during the fsb change. So much for ordering 8 new copper ramsinks and a vga silencer for my card when there was nothing wrong with it in the first place. But it's all good, 9800 pro's always need alot of cooling anyways. So now that I know it's my cpu overclock that is causing this problem, does anyone know what I can do to run at 200mhz fsb more stablely? Increase cpu voltage maybe? I ran 200mhz fsb with 1.700 volts all along because I didnt know if that was too high or not and didnt want to fry my chip. Thanks

    Have you tried getting it stable @ 200fsb with a lower multiplier?
