hi, I've been having some weird problems with my 9800se. It's 128Mb 128bit, running at 380/600, which is the stock speeds. I put an Arctic Silencer on it and opened the pipes to 8, and it ran fine for a few months, until... One day my computer would not run any 3d games at all & in DXDIAG it said that direct3d was disabled. So I went back to stock Cat6.1 & it worked fine. OK, so I can't run it at 8 pipes any more, I thought. Everything was running fine for a few weeks, but one day I reached behind my PC to get to a USB port, and touched the VGA cable, and what happens ?? The PC reboots itself !! It fired up again after I reseated the 9800se, but what's all that about ?? Then just today I noticed tried to play a DVD and ticked "use hardware acceleration" in PowerDVD, and then the screen goes all green and I have to reset ?? I disabled hardware acceleration and I could watch a DVD. Sorry for the long post, but there is some weird stuff going on with my 9800se...any ideas ??
