You're partly true on that one. What it actually does, is that it sets for SPD Timings, which is set by the manufacturer, which knows what the memory is able to do at stock volts. You can't "integrate" the volts into the SPD Chip, meaning that if you had ie. 3-3-3-8 at 2.5v, and 2.5-2-2-6 at 3.0v, it would automatically take 3-3-3-8, because 2.5V is the standard voltage for DDR (1.8V for DDR2).

Well, Quake 4 is a pretty challenging title. I can't max it out on 1280 res. SO I'm sorry, but the 7600GS just wouldnt be upto it.

Some things to consoder.
1. The mention of voltage stability and what your PS's 12v= rails amperage is.
2. Disable anything that says "Spectrum"
3. What are your full load temps?

Could any of these troubles be because the chipset is a 6100, not a top overclocker?
This is his board.

Thanks for the help so far guys!

The GFX card problem has been solved - the dodgy buggers at ASUS had given me a 7300GS 512, flashed to SEEM like a 7600GS. Very shoddy. I noticed it while using Everest - it identified itself as a 7600GS, but noted the chip ID was a 7300GS. That also explained why it only had 270MHz (540MHz effective) ram speed on it. I got a real 7600GS, and instantly noticed the difference when running a benchmark. Also, everest reported the ram speeds at 440Mhz (920MHz effective -something like that-). Which was great untill I left the system idling and un-attended for 30mins, after it had been running all day (net surfing etc, nothing hard on the system). Came back to a black screen and a stuffed GFX card! Oh boy. I didn't even get to play a game! ANOTHER replacement on the way. Hopefully this one will be a real 7600GS AND work properly.

So - GFX card problem solved.

All "spectrum" stuff I have already turned off. Temps under load - max it has ever got to is 51C.

dragosmp - I have already upped the voltage from 1.25v - 1.30v. Do you think it still might need more?

gonX & others- thanks for the info.

Ill get back to you on the Power Supply, as I'll need to go find out what you mean by "rails", and I'm not sure how much amps etc it puts out. Go go Google!

Keep it coming guys, I feel we are getting close to a solution!
