My RAM wouldn't hold anything at 1066 unless I pushed the volts up, and even then it showed a lot of instability.

I'm waiting for the RMA # from OCZ right now. I asked in the RMA request for them to exchange the model I have for the same model for AMD, we'll see what happens, might not (probably not) get the AMD verison, but worth asking anyway.

Hopefully this will work ok, if not, I'll have to replace it with something else I guess.

Deactivated also seems to mean sold out sometimes on newegg. Don't fret, I'm sure the board will be back in stock soon there.

That's to bad chops. But at least you have the peace of mind that the Board and Chip are both okay... That should give you a warm and fuzzy feeling!


My C3 945 ships this week so hopefully my issues will go away! When I RMA'd my MoBo for the second time a month ago, they said that they checked it and nothing was wrong with it and that they didn't have any issues flashing the BIOS. So, we'll see what the future holds for this combo in few days or so...

Hey can one of you guys tell me what your north bridge temps are and what your overclock is on it. I seem to be hitting 53C and it seems high to me.

My room is about 16-17c and it idles @ 35c (2626Mhz @ 1.25v), I believe it loads @ 46c~.
I have a 80mm fan blowing directly on it and good case air flow.

I have run the NB as high as 2828Mhz with 1.45v, & 1.3v (NB core) and temps stayed under 50c.

MSI's tech support told me over the phone that the NB was good over 80c. Seems like a high number to me, but he was clear about it.

I'm at a loss for words.... New board New chip, same problems... I cant even run prehistoric games like Dungeons and Dragons online.

Could this be my GPU?
I load up my game, then it will freeze, screen goes black, YET I can still hear music and then my mouse pointer shows up and I can select NPC's and even move around, but screen is black...

I'm running Bios v1.7 now because it tells me what my PC crashed from. Same crashes from v1.4 but that's not the issue. All my setting are on Auto.. really erks me that this board cant figure anything out on its own.

Is there no way for you to borrow another GPU to test?

can you tell if it is the display driver, because thats kinda what it sounds like to me. DL driver sweeper/cleaner and get rid of all those drivers. Then re-install the drivers and see if that fixes it.

edit: driver sweeper added to OP

and can be found here
