The 630 is single core, and as far I know this issue only affects AMD rigs (haven't seen Intel fixed for this either, only AMD ones)

It affects intel rigs as well, I've had a few people I play eve with that had that problem with a pentium D, the patch fixed it though.

There is no need to pay us. If you feel the need to pay someone after the fact that would be an awesome way of thanking them. I feel a rep point would also be appreciated. I edited your post due to the fact that it takes away from the posts that arent offering to pay. Overclock.net is not a pay site we just love the challenge. <br />
<br />
As for your problem. Most of the things have been covered. If you have a friend I would recomend seeing if he will allow you to test your GPU on their system. If the problem still exists contact the GPU manufacturer, you might be eligible for a RMA. They will also provide more tech support. The support they provide may solve the issue. <br />
<br />
One more thing...<br />
Did you give power to the GPU? The black molex from your PSU? Also what is your aperature size is set to 128 or 256? Do not set it any higher than that, if you have then you could be choking performance by giving your gpu memory that your system needs.

</div>I don't understand a single one of these things. <br />
<br />
Furthermore, earlier someone asked if I put in my CPU with thermal tape or paste.... I bought some to put it on with but I ended up just putting the CPU directly onto the motherboard without either. As far as CPU cooling goes it came with a CPU cooling fan, so I use that and I have 3 other fans on my rig.

</div>If you didn't have any thermal paste that might have been the issue. give that a shot but while you are there check your graphics card for a power connection.<br />
<br />
Your graphics card has a black plug at the back of it. You need to have your power supply give power to your card via this connector. Is it plugged in? I am not sure if the low end model has one, I would think that it does.<br />

Yes, I have the power plugged in with an adapter through that black port thingy.

Since you are running stock cooling as you said, there should be a thermal pad between the heatsink and the CPU.<br />
However, temps could still be an issue.

</div>Good to know <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
Do you have any cpu temp monitoring programs like <a href="http://www.almico.com/speedfan430.exe" target="_blank">speedfan</a>? If not download it and install then see what your temps are. To figure out which is your cpu you need to create full load for your cpu. You can do this by compressing some files or by running a cpu intensive benchmark like <a href="http://files.extremeoverclocking.com/file.php?f=103" target="_blank">prime95 </a>then check the temperatures one of them should reach 50c or higher. That is your cpu. make sure it stays under 60c. the stock cooler isn't that great so it could be the culprit. Thermal compound would help a good bit.

In addition to Spooked's good advice, I would check the following. As you see on this image, your motherboard has three power connectors. If you have a 24 pin PSU, which means that the large plug of the PSU fits the large, white connector on the left without any open spaces, then you only have to use the square connector on the right, and NOT the other one. Here is the manual of your motherboard:<br />

Here's my PC temps while running Speedfan almost by itself (Mozilla, Ventrilo, only other programs opwn):<br />
<br />
<a href="http://i28.photobucket.com/albums/c225/Devo08/SpeedfanTest.jpg" target="_blank">http://i28.photobucket.com/albums/c2...eedfanTest.jpg</a><br />
<br />
It's clocking @ 81 degrees while I'm doing nothing.... I think we may have found the problem.

I am thinking it is the power supply causing the crashes. I dont remember exactly but I remember something about 33amps on the 12volt rail required for all x1800 graphics cards. Chozart could you back me up on this one? Have you heard of the x1800 working on a dell 450watt PSU?<br />
<br />
Dev could you check to see what the max amps is on the 12v rail? Look in your case at the power supply it should have a listing of amps and such on the side. Look for the max on the 12v+ the max amps will be listed below it.<br />
<br />
EDIT:::::::It could be both, but lets get your cpu cool first. Did you remove the old thermal pad? After that you should only use a grain of rice sized drop on the cpu heatspreader. then apply the heatsink and thats it. make sure the heatsink is clean before you insert it.

</div>Okay I can only see the bottom of the sticker on my PSU when i look at it, because my case blocks the rest. But at the bottom it says this:<br />
<br />
**5V+3v3V+12V Max Combined = 422W<br />

</div>You lost me here... I don't currently have the thermal paste at this location, it's about 8 hours away. So I'll buy some new stuff. What exactly do I need and where can I get it?

Ok, although your video card gets enough power on its own, I think it's still worth a try to connect the other connector on the right. Thus, both the square one and the rectangle one should be connected. The board is probably not getting enough power to deal with the heavy demands of the 3D Graphics withouth this additional power.

Yes I know. The extra connector is important when you use a powerful video card. Sorry for phrasing my response in a confusing way.<br />
I did mean that you should try to plug in that extra connector.<br />
In response to Spooked, yes, the PSU might definately be too weak to handle the X1800XT. A solid current is needed on the 12V rails, which this PSU is likely lacking. I don't think it's a Dell though.... he has a Xion case, and the PSU came with the case...correct?

That temperature on your cpu is WAYY to high. Which X1800 do u have? The X1800XT, X1800XL, or the X1800GTO? To respond to spooked, the X1800XT needs 32 amps
