    Having a stability problem with a very stock IC7-G 2.8C 1G DDR system. No overclocking at this particular time, although the my testing has been limited by the memory as far as I can tell.

    Memory is Geil PC3500 Golden Dragon. Haven't been very impressed with this memory. Overclocking has been very limited.

    So, running at stock speed on a 2.8, with a brand new ATI 9600XT card, I get lockups playing games.

    We are playing the new URU, and after 15-20 mins, or sometimes after an hour, a quick, sudden lockup. Have to hit reset to reboot.

    Bios is a stock speed for memory, pretty much SPD. Haven't fooled with the game accel settins in the BIOS much.

    I thought it was the video card or drivers, so I changed to another 9600SE with new drivers, same problem, lockup.

    One problem I see is the MBM voltage readings. +12v = 11.73 +3.3 = 3.23 and +5 = 4.89

    Also, using the stock Intel cooler, and temps get up to 148F playing games.

    I also get a lockup under normal desktop activiity, but very rarely.

    So, do I need more voltage, better memory, more cooling ??

    Abit motherboards always read temps high so dont worry to much about that

    The temp issue is covered at : http://forum.abit-usa.com/showthread...threadid=11496

    Did you remove all the drivers for your old video card? this might cause you problems

    the ABIT forum is full of info on your board!

    Have you ran CPU-Z this will give you info on your components?
