Stability issues /ONLY/ while gaming Q9550 E0

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Running Prime95 for 24 hours = stable
Running folding for 24 hours = stable
LinX ramtest = stable

Diablo3 while multitasking = screen freezes

It seems that when there are sporadic variations in the core's load the system crashes?
Could this be GPU related? (not clocked)
Ram is the obv choice, but its not clocked either.. and overvolted..

Heres my settings:
CPU: Q9550 E0
MOBO: ep45-ud3p

CLOCK ratio: 8
fine:.5
frequency:4.25 (norm 2.75)
cpu host freq:500
pci express freq:100

MCH LATCH: 400
SM MULTI: 2.00D
MEM FREQ: 900
TIMING: MANUAL

MOBO VOLTAGE CONTROL

CPU VCORE: 1.66 (have pushed 1.7 with no improvement) (norm 1.25)
CPU TERM:1.32 (norm 1.2)
PLL:1.57 (norm 1.5)
REF:AUTO

MCH/ICH
MCH CORE:1.4 (norm 1.1)
MCH REF: AUTO

Any ideas?

I'd say it's the GPU. Have you tried running benchmarks to see whether it freezes or not?

Does it happen with other games as well? Could be a specific D3 problem
