And by the way... S&M stable apparently doesn't mean as such. My rig passed S&M last night with flying colors. Today, I tried to install a newer southbrdige driver, and I got an IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL BSOD. It is only the CPU that can give me that right? Not the RAM or something? I am hesitant to give it another 25 mV.
Could it be the northbridge maybe? I am still running that stock voltage.
I concur with G.O.; I'd wager it's a new driver doing that.
As far as I'm concerned, though, it's very goofy to blame a stress test program for any machine's instability. Why? Machines are variable factors, in that they are ever changing (whether in terms of software or hardware, or simply through wear and tear). The stress test itself doesn't change its parameters, though. It's a set, consistent and constant standard.
Ornery Joe might say it's stupid to blame a stress test for stress test failures. But he's on furlough.

Although, thlnk3r, I'll very soon be doing some Vista tests myself. No actual time-table for this yet, but it's going to happen.
Finally, welcome to the Club, mirunit!
You are now on our formal roster.
Okay. Back to football and server-building!
