    It's alright, Bogmali has been great about it. At least I have the new i7 laptop to keep things up in the mean time...and I was able to pull a C2D mobo/CPU out of the closet and assemble that with the GTX460 until I find something new.

    HDD could be dying or OS could be corrupted. Check your HDD with Crystaldisk info or Seatools.

    It's the OS. You check for viruses? Maybe something is messing with the OS?

    So my Athlon II 240 machine is giving me BSOD. Not sure what's wrong. I used the motherboard, cpu, and memory extensively when that stuff was my main system. I'm running the same overclocks I was using and verified it stable. Right now I'm running memtest86+ trying to see if maybe my memory is going unstable. The memory is kinda crappy and it might not be able to do 1000mhz 5-5-5-15-20-2t at 1.95v anymore. The cpu is at 3.5GHz, 250x14. I'm pretty sure that was stable on stock voltage, which is 1.425.

    Stable for crunching may be it lower. Lower your o/c about 200 mhz and run it a bit at that setting.

    Dunno, these settings were rock solid stable when I ran it as my main rig. It's not exactly an extreme oc either, I never overvolted anything. I ran memtest86+ for 2 passes and it came up good, but I increased the memory voltage to 2.05v after that and just started another linpack test.

    I was able to run my 960T at 3.8Ghz and it was stable for all every day stuff but for crunching it needed to back off to 3.6Ghz for the same stability.

    That was my experience anyway YMMV

    It was rock solid stable to crunch all day, hell run linpack all day... now it's not. I had a BSOD again, dropped cpu multi. Now at 13x250 for 3300, down from 3500.

    CPU's can degrade over time. Needing more voltage to hold the same clock or having to lower the clock for stability can be signs of this.

    Did it crunch for a long time?

    It ran balls out all the time. I can't see why it would degrade though, I've never seen this happen once yet. It wasn't an exteme oc, it got there on stock voltage without complaint. Dropped multi to 13 for 3300mhz, and it hasn't crashed yet. Roughly one hour into the test. I'll be upgrading soon, but I really need this to be stable while I have it.

    Cool deal, should help out a bit.

    My Athlon II seems stable after lowering to 3.3GHz. Hopefully, I'll be upgrading it to a Phenom II x6. Need someone to buy up all my stuff so I can do it! :)

    Okay, Checked For Virus but no virus found but the CHKDSK has stopped checking the disk at boot-time.:)

    LOL That is great but which Theme are you using it looks like W98:shadedshu:roll:

    Great, do you plan to oc it?

    got the 3570K and the asrock z77 extreme4-m, + 8gb crucial 1866 and a hd7770 to hold me over until i get something better :D

    should put boinc on it later and let it crunch all night :)

    If it stopped great, but I had that issue once and it was the OS.


    You running memtest in windows or off a disk?

    Bootable memtest86+. Accept no substitutes. Once it made 2 full passes without a single error I decided to drop the cpu multi to 13, equaling out the core speed to 3250MHz. I ran 2 hours of linpack and it came back clean, since then no other issues.

    Awesome server Bogmali!

    I sold another one of my C2Ds today, so I'm now down to 2xC2D + 1x PentDC + 1x i7-m; this is where I'll be until I purchase another i7 for my desktop.

    So my primary way of keeping track of my websites of interest is to keep them in a tab.

    Accidentally clicked the close other tabs button, and it kindly told me if I was sure that I wanted to close the 213 other tabs. :eek::laugh:

    And my desktop seems to be fine, so it will crunch once I get back to it. :D
