It sucks when...

Thread Starter 
... Your memory (I think) dies half way through a WU...

I kept getting IO errors, ran Ortho's and it error'd in 3 minutes.... it had been running 24/7 100% folding 3 days before that, I came home an noticed I had lost a WU and it kept getting IO errors....

So question being, Is it my memory or something else? I ran memtest for about 4 hours and came up clean...

Memory in memtest is done in complete passes through all the memory. So run 10 pass's and see if any errors come up. A little exessive, but I have gotten many errors in the 5-6 pass range, and one time got a few errors in the 6 1/2 - 7 pass range.

Run memtest overnight and see what comes up. Other wise, the OC might now be completly stable. Folding is really picky about stable pc. Also, up the SB voltage. Stress test doesnt test that, but folding utalizes it.
