    I
    have
    made
    FIIIIIRRRREEEEEE !


    seems like the mobo change did the trick. 3 hours of continuous GTA4 play without the slightest glitch (I quit after that time). this was impossible before. Wow, the ds3 really must be broken somewhere.

    phhhhhiiiew, I finally made it. I'll test further but it's now clear to me that the mobo is bad. not cool, but hey, better than being in the dark.

    now I need to cancel the order I made for the ATI test card

    Hmm, well at least you found the problem!

    Sounds like you should RMA the board, or keep it for a non gaming machine. Later is probably the best bet, because if you RMA it they wont find any issues likely because they wont test with your hardware or games.

    Stick with the ATI order, your PC will thank you for the upgrade

    Yup, I did exactly that. Just swapped them Main PC <-> Gaming Machine Boards. The stresstests show that I'm unlikely to experience any problems with that board as long as I don't game with it.

    Ooohh :X.
    Is this the ATI fanboy speaking?

    No honestly, when I buy hardware, or anything for that matter, I'm usually the "best-bang-for-bucks" guy, regardless of brand. Had an X1900XT before and a 9800Pro before that.

    Na, I just like Sapphire actually and wont buy anything else.

    I used to use Nvidia cards, but couldn't stand the driver errors/issues so I switched to Sapphire a few years back and haven't had an issue since.

    I can't ever afford to get the best so I am kinda like you, just upgraded to 4890 a few months ago, was 3870 before that. Next will be 5870 probably, but after 6xxx cards come out :)

    yup, Sapphire is good. both my X1900XT and the 9800pro were from them.

    just pushing the overclock a bit more beyond 4 GHz. Hey Lsdmeasap. What do you usually do to find the lowest stable vCore? Preferably something faster than Prime Small FFTs. Currently using OCCT CPU @ HIGH priority. That should error pretty early on too low voltage right? Maybe Linpack would be better? Other fast and reliable ways? of course a long prime small fft run will come but just a quick way to narrow it down? what do you do usually?

    Well I start high, then lower and test as time permits. I am on water, so unless I have plenty of "bored time" I personally don't spend much time looking for lowest voltages actually.

    You can use LinX or Intel Burn Test for faster testing methods, as well as HCI Memtest. Ya OCCT should error out fairly quick if voltages are too low.

    When I am looking for stability I use HCI and LinX myself.

    Isn't OCCT: Linpack the same as LinX or close to?

    2 Frontends for Linpack basically?

    OCCT not sure as I do not use this myself

    Linpack is what is used for LinX or Intel Burn Test, that is for sure.

    @ 489 MHz FSB / 4.4 Ghz 1.356v (bios) currently and OCCT: CPU 1h stable so far. (G)MCH and FSB OverVoltage at stock.

    Sounds good! Especially for 4.4Ghz!
