Thanks, I am now @ -.075v on the CPU, still @ 3.4GHz & 2400NB w/ the NB @ stock volts...I also have the ram undervolted to 1.95v @ 1066MHz @ 5-5-5-15 2T, I think that's pretty good all around for everything IMHO. I am fixing to run some stability tests.
I had thought it was the memory because I had been getting random visual errors on screen. Like when I have multiple windows open, and would switch to a different window, the graphical interface with the other window would be distorted. I thought it would be related to either CPU, GPU, or memory. I was also getting memory errors with P95, and an in Windows version of Memtest. I RMA'd my memory, but it's ADATA RAM, so that was weeks ago when I sent it off, and still haven't even heard anything from them. Love the ram, it was great with my Intel E8500 setup, and overclocks really well, but their service is super slow, and they lack communication with the customer.
I could run IBT on high all day long, but P95 would always crash quickly. I also RMA'd the GTX 260 as well, because of heat issues and random artifacts. I have my 4890 in there for now since my i7 build is still a ways off from being complete. The new (or refurbished card) GPU from EVGA will be here tomorrow, over all turn around time of 8 days (including weekends) to ship them my card and get a replacement. Who knows, maybe I will get a free upgrade too! (I have a GTX 260 192, maybe I'll get a 216 lol
I will post back some results when I have them. So far at idle if everything is accurate enough I am idling at 25c
Of course it is night time, and it has finally cooled down in my house, but during the day, even with the AC cranked down to 65, my house's room temp sits around 80-85F...
Gotta love central Texas heat...
