So... I thought I was stable @735 (fsb 105)... but as UT started it quit. Then, when I relaunched it DDHELP.EXE illegal operated out. So I rebooted to 700 and... good, it works. However, after two hours of gameplay it quit suddenly. The CPU was not OC'ed. I don't think the video card was (if it was, it was @201 core and 337 mem, over 200/333). The ram is generic PC133, which i run at 2,2,3 even though its rated 3,3,3 by SPD. Do you think it was the memory or something else?
and why doesn't the damn k7v have 2 cpu fan connectors? i have one speed reported as cpu and the other reported as power fan speed.
The first paragraph is more important to me, of course.
I have to think HD first because my quantum 10 gig died on me. I had problems like that before I replaced it. Then again after my CPU got baked I had those probs again plus a LOT more, if it's just the game and not a lot of blue screens, I think it's not the HD. But don't go on what I say someone else could tell ya better.
AMD Thunderbird 900mhz (water cooling finished)
Asus A7V KT133 chipset w/ 196MB SDRAM
Radeon 64meg w/ VIVO
Running my 64MB Geforce2 GTS
SB Live! X-Gamer
Maxtor 20.1GB 7200RPM HD
well it turns out that I need to be 100% non-overclocked for good UT play... except my Geforce GTS - which I can put as far as it goes and not crash 366 is artifact free, 370 has some, and 390 has great performance (funky colors, new way to do modern art)
so when I boot for UT I run everything at rated speed.
