System crashing while working in Photoshop - Page 2

When you say default do you mean at 200Mhz with default timings? So your bios only allows you to pick a type of processor to run at? If that is the case see if there is an updated bios that allows you to adjust your FSB manually. Perhaps a beta bios may have to be used. If you can adjust your FSB and memory frequency/timings then try to underclock your memory. When you adjust your "FSB" to 220 it also takes your memory up to that frequency too. Not sure how your bios will be set up, but set it to a 5:4 ratio or run it at PC2700 (166MHz). With your frequency being overclocked to 220MHz your memory would run at around 183MHz with adjusting it to PC2700. Give that a whirl, it may just be your memory causing the instability.

Ah, you have a 2500+ running at 3200+. I have never seen a desktop 2500+ make that move without a vcore of 1.8V and sometimes 1.85V. Probably some here have done it but I never have.

Raise your vcore and you will very likely find stability. You have excellent cooling and power so the system should easily take the vcore raise.

Hey guys, thanx for all of the replys. Unfortunately, my PC died yesterday so I won't be able to try your suggestions. I was playing in BIOS, nothing special and during one boot BIOS recognized the processor as Athlon 1100Mhz (***?), Performed the memory test OK, listed all of the drives and printed: "CMOS checksum error: loading defaults" and stopped. No response to Ins, Del or Alt+F2. I took the MBO back to the store, who knows maybe it will be replaced since it was bought a few months ago. Nevertheless, i have managed to set the processor to work @ 2000MHz (200x10) perfectly. So when the MBO comes in, I will set it to this setting and leave it that way.

MBO is back! They couldn't fix it so it was replaced. I'm back online @2000Mhz. Enough for me...
