My Hyper transport sync is set at Auto, would it hurt to turn it down or off?
I dont think its your bios because you were at 1.4 and have the same problems at 1.7. Im biased about the c2 stepping i had a bad one so i figure you might have one also. On the other had since you cant duplicate your error over and over like i could with mine it could be the motherboard. If you have the money id buy another chip and run it and if all is fine return the first chip, thats what i did. Or even buy another motherboard to test but if you have no clue if its ur mobo cpu or ram honestly i would return it all.
Hyper transport at auto is fine and i dont think you are over volting the cpu since you are having the same errors at 100% stock settings.

OCCT is great and all, but somethings wrong with it. Every time I run it, it shuts down because one of my cores supposedly hit 200C . Which is total BS because I have made coretemp refresh every ms and it never has reported a time spike of any sort.

So for overall system stability I run prime blend for 8 hours. If it's stable for that long, it's stable enough for me.

And what kind of temps are you seeing under load? Remember these CPUs like cold better than volts.
OCCT is too sensitive. I went back to stock settings to make sure it wasn't the program before trying anymore... sure enough I get the same core errors with no overclock.

I'm going back to prime95.

I can force the hyper transport sync flood error while playing Dragon Age Origins and tabing in and out of my game to read forums, that will almost 100% of the time crash my pc and give me the error.

Is newegg cool with RMA'ing everything you just purchased cuss that would be nice.

Isn't that because of the 45Nm technology? I thought that I read that somewhere...
As far as I know that is the cause. With the ever shrinking die sizes electromigration becomes an issue. AFAIK, keeping the CPU cold really helps keep the electrons where they're supposed to be.

Electromigration is also the reason it is important to KNOW that your overclock is stable, electromigration can and will cause permanent failure.

That has got to be the best way I have heard it put!

does Bios v1.6 not tell you what caused your pc to crash? I ask because I just flashed to 1.6 and tried to play my game again when my PC went white screen this time (pleasant change from the all black) and then my pc crashed and I had to reboot.

Question,

Does anyone have any idea Why I wouldn't be able to flash my BIOS but MSI would. Tech support said that they use a machine. I sent my motherbosrd to MSI last Tuesday and just received it today. I stuck it all together and low and behold I STILL had the same BIOS on it.

What was up with that guy? You two (Eclipse and Mastiff) really showed more restraint than I may have offered!
Generally, if you need help, you ask nice.

Well, I'm still waiting for MicroCenter to get in the C3, Now they're saying next week... *sigh*, I hope so.

Sounds to me like the Core is iffy...it can compute big numbers on at a time but when it needs to multitask its crashing....It could also be the IMC...I just think you got a bum chip
Side note i returned my memory(9-9-9 RipJaws) and chip(965 c2) for a full refund to newegg after having it for 25days.

You got ur mem stick formatted with fat32 and the bios is in the base of the flash drive on partition 0?
