    The retail HSF's are pretty crap but all ya need is a Volcano 7+ to get temps down so long as ya have good case airflow.

    :laugh:
    Yes I know I replaced essentially the whole system, but remember the majority was under warranty and the other well I can use in other machines I have or just use them as spares.

    I think the biggest bang was the HD but could have been the CPU, check EBAY you can find them relatively cheap as long as you don't try to get the latest and greatest.

    You might remove your fan and reseat it..... BUT .... take the time and clean it well removing all the old grease, I made the mistake and put too much on mine once not only did it make a mess but it caused the CPU to run about 15 dec C WARMER, after I cleaned up my mess and just put a small dab ( smaller than a pencil eraser head) you want a very small film layer 1/16 of an inch completely covering the die when finished.

    I'm familiar with setting heatsinks. I just realized I've been saying everything is in F and it's in C ;)

    Anyways, it crashed yesterday and here's what the event viewer had to say:

    Description:
    The description for Event ID ( 0 ) in Source ( ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: 7

    So that helps me in no way... I'm gonna keep talking to AMD. That program is $500, so no way. When you claimed your warrenty, did you go back to where you bought it or send it in to the manufacturer?
    Who is that masked man?

    I went thru the companies where I bought them. The case & power supply came with a year warranty.... the parts well it was under 45 days and I raised cane with them and ensured I didn't pay the restocking fees or any shipping charges.

    That error message is very weird. When you get the BSOD are you able to search Microsoft Knowledge Base and get help or with the multiple errors do the same and find any commonalities?

    Hope this helps.
