Im hoping gigabyte will RMA the board since, every BIOS update has failed it just freezes instantly! and ive tried Qflash and @BIOS, and F9 and F10b

if my assumption is correct it will be tomorrow night when it wont even POST at stock speeds, seems to degrade in a few hours each time.

by stable i mean it passes 30 runs of maximum intelburntest
Have you tried to "repair" the OS by booting to the disc? It won't cost you anything but some time to try.

@ Dryadsoul --did you not have an OS problem a few months back causing you to repair or reinstall the OS? Was it causing similar problems to what sdla4ever is experiencing?

@ dennyb. Wow. I'd be happy with a plain ol' 500 fsb. Just to see the numbers in CPU-Z and say "Okay...I can do this..."

But, work with what you got until you can get better, I say.
Well crash if you seriously want to see 500+ numbers in CPUZ, then I have a deal for you my friend. I have a 65nm E6300 chip-1.86GHz stock (in my rig as I type this post) that I only drive to church on Sundays. I have gotten it to boot into windows @ 522FSBx7 and it is 8hrs stable in sm fft and 8hrs in blend @ 515x7--3.6GHz. That is comparable to NoGuru's stability on any given Saturday night.

I will send it to you if you want to play with it and see what you can do with it. I have managed to overclock it to a tad under (+94% stable). The old E6300's are monster overclockers. If you want to see your board run 500+ just say the word and it's on the way

F9 was good, I don't think the F10 is any better.

Will updating my BIOS help me improve overclocks? I really need to format my OS partition so I figured I would update the BIOS while I'm doing that.
