    I went ahead and set it to 1.00% and it seems to be a lot faster, don't know about stability though, won't know that until next time if it crashes..... I also installed 2.45 drivers from nvidia.

    I HAVE sold that board! I sold it the chip and the memory! BUT I went today and had my ram replaced with some samsung memory (same size) I also overheard the guy replacing my ram at the store telling another person that this was what he was talking about (he was referring to my situation) I asked him if I was the only person that had trouble with ram in this board and he said NO...that IT HAPPENED all the time! That made me feel better anyway, I was beginning to wonder if it was the board acting up or just ME doing something wrong! The guy at the store went on to say that this board was VERY picky with memory and some people had to come back to the store and get acouple of differen t sticks TWICE in a row! Well I will keep you posted, if I have anymore bluescreens though my patience will be at an end with this board! I will pull it! I would rather have something that I know will WORK and be STABLE rather than have the fastest board and it be UNSTABLE! stability is a huge factor for me as I don't want to be replacing my motherboard all the time!

    Well so far it seems to have worked! The new memory I put in is doing fine! And I am watching a TV show I downloaded off the internet and downloading another at the same time! If it does not give me bluescreens then, I should be OK!

    Well it has been 3 days and NO bluescreens! I talked to somebody on another board and they said that using CHEAP RAM on this board for some reason, works better and doesn't give the IRQL NOT LESS THAN bluescreen! So if you get this board, do yourself a favor and get some cheap ram and stick it in ! It might save you some bucks!

    You most likely had a bad stick.

    If that was the case, how then was windows showing it as OK in the start screen?? (It read 1 gigabyte on the startup screen and in the info in windows) Could the screen have been fooled into thinking the memory was OK?? I wonder if it was OK for other systems but just a little bit off for it to work in my A7N8X Deluxe?? Strange........

    Its like Geil, it sometimes works and gets you into windows, but when it does it still has problems.

    Geil had a fairly poor rep in the past, but recently they have been doing pretty well. I had a chance to play with some a few months ago and it performed quite well, even with moderate overclocking.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!
