^^^^^ Yeah I can't argue there. ^^^


My system was Prime stable in small fft and blend for 24 hours each. Nevertheless, couldn't play GTA 4 for longer than 20 minutes without crashing. Went to stock and that fixed it. I was prime stable at 4.0, when I lowered it to 3.7 for GTA my issue went away. Never had problems with any other games at 4.0.

I heightened my FSB by 5mhz, made sure it was stable and yesterday played the game for about an hour without a hitch :/

Halp!

PS: My system is stable, according to Prime95, OCCT and SuperPI.
suggestion; try lowering the shadow settings? o_o"

GTA IV is a fun 'crashing' game... really
