Super Prime is a program that stresses the CPU to 100%(Dual Core). IF it isn't stable it will crash/BSOD and so on.

Can be found here.

Run two to get to 100% CPU usage,

Yes 11.797 is very good.... What speed you got that running at now and what voltage?

Tox man, where you been hiding... Just use Prime 95. It will have all four cores crunching away with just the one instance of the program running.

Hopefully you have a good chip, do you know what your chips VID is (its native automatic voltage)?
I`m pretty sure my first increase in volts is beween 3.8 & 4, probably more towards 4. VID is 1.2xx something. I know 4.2 took another step-up in volts again.

Good to know the GX2 aint as fast as 8800GTX SLI

I have virtually the same spec as you but 8800GTXs and im getting about 19600 so far in 3dmark and that was either running the QX at 3.4 or 3.6 cant remember now.

Does depend on what system you are running.

i dont know if im allowed to pt links in a post like this but in answer to emexrulsier's comment about the 9800gx2 and his cards in sli if he looks at this page (in specific) at the 3dmark '06 scores i think he might be suprised as to how triple sli only just gets higher scores never mind dual cards in sli

http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews.p...gb_en9800gx2/4

and at the highest res the gx2 overtakes the tri-sli rig so im not sure if his comment is valid or not

plus this is not on as good chip and stuff

any comments that can help me on this???

just another noob question from me. sorry. i noticed that when i up my fsb that has a direct relation to my ram speed. Does having faster ram enable you to clock your processor higher opr am i completely mistaken???

ie im on ddr2@667 at the moment, if i upgrade to ddr3 would that make it possible to clock higher than im getting at the minute.

im only getting to 11x335fsb before it bsod on me. i had it at 10x350fsb as well but higher and bsod. could this be due to the ram speed???

thanks for the help

It could definitely be the ram limiting you.. Especially being value ram and being 4 x 1gb sticks will also make life more difficult. Even some higher speed DDR2 wouldn't go a miss and wouldn't break the bank either.
