It was one of 2 things. Reinstalled my 9800 gtx and set the the sata back to IDE interface .. I'm leaning more towards the IDE change. But I'm going to Reinstall with achi and try that. I'm at work right now pc is prime stressing at 4.6 1.25v. So I'll know when I get of at 8am if its stable The Maximus is a way better board than the ud3 I had a couple weekly ago Later Matt

I'm using a Noctua NH-U9B SE2 AIR CPU/HSF cooler ... I can't say for sure about that temp / voltage ... just that the Corsair H-100 should do a good job keeping things cool in general, ask some others in the GENE-Z owners club ... I've never used the Hydro Coolers so can't advice on it much blushsmiley.gif, but some others in there should be able to tell you.
