    a graphics intensive game to Close? I mean, the game (ffxi) just closes out of nowhere and takes me back to the desktop. No error message, nothing... I was wondering if this would be a software problem, but to make sure I would rather ask u guys. Thanks!

    specs...

    Either the overclocking made your program crash, or a driver conflict. All drivers update i presume? All i can see is overclocking is the problem...so put the thing on default and see how that works...:cheers:

    Yeah, there's really only one way of testing stuff like that, and that is just setting back to defaults and testing the games like Batman said.

    Quick question, could an installation go bad because of an OC?? I have heard about issues with battlefield 1942 not loading up, or freezing/not running at all because of installations during overclocks. Any thoughts?

    Do you mean when your hardware is overclocked, you install your bf1942, then it freezes and all that crap? I don't think installing/ and overclocking can do anything bad, unless your cpu is not stable. :cheers:

    i had that very same problem, games quitting to the desktop with no messages or nothing, or locking up all together. Bios update to 1007 fixed everything :):thumb:

    Actually, it is best to set everything back to default before you go ahead and install something major like a game. This is just because your memory might make a slight error that normally wouldnt matter, but it might write a .dll file wrong or something, causing a bugged install. I always un o/c before I install games and stuff, and you NEVER want to install windows on an O/Ced system, but Im sure you knew that. Peace.
