auky said:i would not recommend it as i'm having tons of problem w/ it. i got bsod while installing a fresh copy of xp. MACHINE_CHECK_ERROR, IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, PAGE_FAULT_IN.....etc.. you name it. sometimes i get error while using IE and the error code is, " memory could not be read" ..wtf is wrong w/ this board?
This is your problem with you computer right now.
IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error is you video card. Either you need to update the drivers or don't push it to hard with overclocking it. I know my card gets quite warm but put a fan on that and nice and cool. (Just threw it over the top of the card right on the heat sink)
PAGE_FAULT_IN error is to deal with your memory. Either your pushing your memory to far (which is in most cases with this) or your CPU is just getting pushed to hard. Slow it down.
MACHINE_CHECK_ERROR error deals with CPU speeds if not mistaken. It misinturpets commands and bam you get this anoying error.
I would recommend using prime95 to test machine stablitity. You might just be pushing it to hard. I know I can get my CPU up to 2.66 and it kicks a normal 2.66 out of the water but right now i have mine at 2.58 I think (switch it so much) and it still competes with a 2.66 at this speed in sandra. Take it down to a lower level for a bit, but keep same voltage. Then try cranking that baby back up. You might beable to go faster with your settings this way or might beable to run lower voltages.
Oh yea I would recommend this motherboard. Just update to the latest bios and you should have no problem at all. I love having no legacy ports eliminates problems.
actually i'm having all those problems in default speed, default voltage, everything default.
