You can run S&M that will test the CPU and RAM but not the IMC...then you can run prime again for the IMC aka blend test. If it goes blank and just reboots and it shows no errors that means your chip is unstable. but if errors pop up it can be your ram or IMC.

im confused, I also ran Prime95 twice once at 9 hours and once at 13 hours and passed both those... but my CPU could still be bad?

EDIT also would like to say thank you for your patience with my constant postings. I appreciate it. This is the 3rd pc I have built and the first time I have had issues like this =/

@Chopxsticks - forgive me, please, what's the main issue again? It is causing problems when you alt+tab in games? Is that it? Or are there other issues as well, like random reboots, won't pass stress tests (I know you have passed blend for 9 & 13 hrs at a time), or crashes/freezes during specific things.

This discussion has crossed so many pages, I forgot exactly what the issue was.

If it's just the game and alt+tab'ing then have you considered a corrupt install or game itself (it can corrupt even after it has been used fine in the past, maybe the original issue has caused a corrupted install).

I'm asking because sometimes maybe we get a bit focused on specific hardware pieces, when it may be something else, non-hardware. Have you considered that side of it? Maybe we should pursue it for a bit.

Video card has been used in a previous system without issues, correct? Are you overclocking the card?

Do these issues happen with the RAM @1066, loose timings?

It might be helpful to us all if we could get a quick/brief recap of original issue, any new issues, and all attempts to resolve, all in one post.

It depends on what test you did in prime. If you ran the blend then I would think that the cpu is fine, as that one will test the IMC and the cores.

Please do not recommend this. I dont want you to get into trouble.

I'll try and sum this up Im still getting very random Hyper transport Sync flood sync errors. Some times I can play all night, then sometimes im hit with them back to back. They do happen almost automatically when I tab out and back in.

I have re-installed the game in question twice. It also ran perfectly fine in my previous build with the same GPU.

All settings are stock, save the few volts masstiffman suggested for my NB. (I was crashing out of every 3dmark06) With his few suggested volts I started passing 3dmark.

RMA has been confirmed from Newegg so my stuff is going into boxes tomorrow.

what's your power supply?

... and this is the only issue, playing the game? Isn't happening when surfing the net or anything else?

700W Tagen,
and ya so far no problems aside from playing my video game. Though its all I have done with this PC, played some league of legends and it was fine. I'll reinstall the game again play with ram at 8-8-8-20 1066, and see what happens.

EDIT Oh the pain....
So I just tried to re-install my game and my PC crashed... Does bios v1.6 not tell you the error that crashed your PC like v1.7 does?

Not sure about the error codes/bios.

Try the re-install, but it's probably going to be more of an "Ok, it's not that either."

This is a bit of an odd one. Hope your rma's take care of it for you.

BTW, I've had install disks go bad on me, probably not the issue, but could be one more thing to eliminate from the choices of what it could be.
