Pun3D, if you are getting BSOD's during a OS installation then that is not good. Are you sure you are runing at stock settings? Did you clear the CMOS or manually make the changes? Do you have the ability to run memtest? I'd recommend running tests 5 and 8 each for at least 15-20 minutes. You can download memtest by going here: http://www.overclock.net/downloads/1...memtest86.html.

RotaryKnight, this happened on my older Asus A8N-SLI motherboard. The optical drive and graphics card did the same thing all though I don't think there was a fan in the optical drive; it was almost like a CD was being spun up. In any case I think this is normal. It could be some type of short diagnostic check that the BIOS does upon POST.

Good luck

Can anyone share some tips on how they are controlling there NB clock while keeping there HT around 1800.

I can change the NB multi but this drops my HT as well. I can lower the HT speed from 1800 and then overclock the FSB to bring it and the NB back up trying to keep the HT lower or around 1800 but when I go over 255 FSB with ram on 800 I start getting BSOD. trying to get more FSB but controll my NB clock to see if the NB is causeing the BSOD so any info would help.

Running Crosshair II Formula with BIOS 1210 if anyone else has this board and know how to do this.

So dropping your ram from 1066 to 800 will help keep it stable? what timing are you running.

Im getting paranoid, since this is the first time I ever seen this happen. When I got this motherboard I thought it was dead because of it lol.

JEmmaB, wow very nice overclock. Have you had a chance to run any tests to determine the stability of that overclock?

Good job

XenoMopH, I'm a bit curious about this too. I spent the last 15 minutes googling and haven't had much luck. Perhaps I'm looking in the wrong area.
