Are there any spsific place in this forum where i can get help with bsod codes?

I can give more details if needed.
Maximous, have you tried running any passes with Furmark just to make sure your video card isn't overheating? Does CS:S lockup while at stock settings?

Let us know

Good luck

Hello thinker.

No i havent got any problem when im at stock. But i can try furmark just to check it out. But i think that also would be strange because i belive that cod6 will USE more of the grafic card than css. Im getting mental soooon

Let u know how furmark goes...

Thnx

Have you tried looking at the event viewer logs (under administrative tools). Do those give any sort of insight to the issue at hand?

The suggestion to check the GPU is a good one, so lets see how that all goes.

also, have you tried running orthos or any other stress tester WHILE running something like furmark? That could tell a better story than just running furmark, because while furmark stresses the cards well, running orthos/OCCT/Prime95 would also use the CPU more while will heat up the case more as well. In other words, it would be more like gaming .

Good luck

I have unlocked my 550BE.
Would anyone please suggest a cooler that can cool off the unlocked processor?
I have CM212+ in mind,which has quite high C/P value.
Please do let me know is there any better ones.
I scare CM212+ might not be able to cool off the 4 core proc and I am thinking to OC to at least 3.8GHz.

There are plenty of good coolers out there for you to choose from, but first, what is your budget? There are many good ones in the $30-$50 range.

Look through these reviews and charts, and I bet you 'll find something that you like that is in your price range.

This one is a preview of a review for the AM3 socket... it was done on a 4GHz PhII 965, so those results will be close to what you should expect. The review will be finished after CES is done later this week .

Hoy hoy.

Ive run furmark for only 2-3 hours but no problem there(im usually getting bsod before that time. And im not playing that long continuasly). Ive not tried to run prime and furmark together yet. ill do that overnight. Ive got one other question though, how much vdrop could i expext? Im at 1.55v now and under load it varies from 1.50 to 1.52. Could this be the explenation?

Usually vdroop isn't as big of a problem for AMD's, and often times there will be fluctuation in the reporting. Personally I wouldn't worry about it to much. Besides, I don't think that CS:S should be using more power than Prime95 .

Let us know how furmark + prime95 goes.

Good luck

Maximous, as Logan mentioned I wouldn't worry about the voltage drops. This actually happens quite often on many AMD boards. Shoot I don't know how many boards I've had were I've watched this occur during load. You have a pretty beefy PSU too so I wouldn't worry about "power requirements".

Perhaps the CS:S issue is in the application itself. Are you running any custom skins, sounds, models ect? Did you do anything in the console (ie. commands)?

Good luck

Hei guys.

I set the furmark an dblend prime over night but when i woke up ive bsod. I know for sure i ran the test for two hours, but not sure when i bsod. It might be something with the app it self, I really dont know. Im admin in one of the servers im playing on(different skin etc.) but i really dont think its that. Then it should happend at stock also. Could it be heat related? Nah, im maxing 53 load on prime blend, But avg 51. Thinnking of getting a c3 instead of this noughty c2.

Well if u guys have any other solutions about the furmark/prime thing, then let me know.

Thnx xDDDDD

Thanks for your links,Logan.
However,I notified something.
There isn't CM212+ listed in there.So sad.
Haha.
I am still unsure of my budget.
I am trying to get one cooler that can cool off the 4 core monster and to OC it to around 3.8 GHz.
I will try update myself until CES is over.
Hope they could put in more coolers that are available in Malaysia.
There aren't many top coolers that are on the second list available over here.
