Im curious. So to satisfy, here are the questions.

1. What motherboard, Cpu (including stepping), and memory you're using.

2. What heatsink and fan you're using. If fan's adjustable, what RPM you have it set at when temps are measured.

3. Ambient (room) temp, case temp (mobo reading), and on die temp at Idle and load.

4. FSB, Multiplier, Ram speed, ram settings, cpu and ram voltage, pci/agp divider.

5. I'd prefer if you used Prime95 to test stability as it's by far the best stability tester I've found. If anyone knows of any better programs please let me know. If you cant or wont use prime95, please say what tester you used and how long you ran it.

1) Abit AT7-Max v1.1 Newest BIOS, XP2200 AIRGA (?) stepping 2x512 Corsair XMS 32MX8 PC-3200C2

2) Alpha 8045 with the crazy 80mm EHE delta on a TT fan adjuster, set to medium (4k)

3) No idea on ambient, but hotter than average. 34c case temp, 51c idle 56.5 max temp

4) 182 FSB 11 multi Ram @183mhz 2-3-4-3-1 (or whatever the fastest is) ram timings. 1.85 vcore 1.70 vram 5:4:1 divider funny thing is, i can run these settings all day, but i can't even boot into windows if i run in "Ultra CPU Decode" mode

5) Can run Sandra Burn-In or Prime95 all day and night, but freaking CPUStabTest dosn't wanna not crash.
