Just popped in my new XP1800, and running into some stability issues. Cpu is very quick, but several games now refuse to even load, or crash later. Even Mad Onion doesn't complete. I'm using Kingmax 150 Mhz. ram, memory set to SPD settings, optimal settings on MB bios. Running cpu at 11.5 multiplier X 133 bus. Using a Gainward GeFOrce 3 200 Ti card. Have updated to VIa 4 in1 dirver ver. 4.37, still no improvement. Set all bios settings to standard, Video card to original settings, still no improvement. Using WIn 98 SE. Is the instaiblity caused by Sdram use in lieu of DDR Sdram? Would installing XP help? Any ideas out there, or similar experiences. Also I left the Vcore to default and it seems to want 1.7 volts..Is that okay for this cpu? THanks!!
