    Why no problem man! ;)
    CP.... you sound so glum bro?
    Hey anyways..... you try
    18x multi
    207 fsp
    1.42 cpu volts
    memory 1066 mode?
    this gives a respectable 3.728GHz
    that was my first and easiest clock to get with this 940.
    i booted at 18x stock everything else, with out as much as an hiccup.....
    im at the moment cursing you fellow clockers since...... well, i told myself a couple weeks ago..... ok brad be happy with 3.88GHz and play your GOW and Grid game with a total Vista re-install..... (keeping the HDD's corrupted free) Hench no BSOD's..... but NOOOOOOOoooo..... you and blair and CD keep tauntin me!!!! :wtf:
    AHhh... IM DONE!!!! you guys WIN!!!!! :laugh:

    i see ppl like putting on a 120MM fan in place of the factory cooler..... IMO i think it wont work as good as the reg fan.... (unless a shroud is fitted)
    For one.... doesn't the greatest CFM flow, from the fan's outer blades?
    Soooo.... if a 120mm sits a good distance away from the fan...... the CFM flow be weaker through the heat sink's fins. :cool:

    well for some reason the 120mm on the factory cooler cooled probably better than the Zalman I have on now. So it is effective, better than the regular fan for sure. But you do have a point. If some sort of shroud was fitted it should be indeed a lot better.

    Have a Duct Goin in the front and then a duct in the back.

    Lets say this, the room is chilly here and overall temps are in the 20, vs upper 30s/40s.

    Are you using a PCI NIC?

    EDIT: My research says it may also be a ram slot issue.

    EDIT^2: More research is pointing towards faulty ram. I'd run a memtest Brad.

    no brad I Have not installed that dude.

    Usually when you BSOD and you get a screen that says what yours says Brad, it is ram instability related. When the BSOD says "clock was not received at secondary processor bla bla fucking bla" thats usually CPU related instability.
