Finally got rid of the annoying lockups I was suffering with my system. Now I am not an electrician, not even sure thats the correct spelling, but I do enough about computers to get me in trouble. I was glancing through my motherboard monitor when I noticed the I/O (system card) voltage seemed a little high, even with my system way overclocked. Checked the bios and it was set at 3.8 so I dropped it back down to 3.5. Have yet to see a lockup and its been running some high end graphical torture tests. So guys and gals yes you may need to bump up the voltage to allow overclocking, but too much is just as bad. Maybe this is old news but to those who are suffering random lockups give it a check out..........
