This is interesting.... but not sure if i understood well: with ATI driver i will have problems stressing the cpu? On any Motherboard? !! ???
Temperatures on the system are okey:
the mobo is on an horizontal base with NO case around
CPU temp. in Idle is 34 CÂ° - loading no more than 46/48
North Bridge is 38/40 - 48/55
Vga: 50 - 65/70
everithing should be installed in a proper way, for thermal compaund i used the grey cooler master.
I have installed 2 kinds of Power supplier
OCZ pfc active 520w and Arkangel 850 w
I have tried 3 kinds of memory
Corsair xms pro 2x512mb PC3200
G.Skill F1 2x512mb PC3200
Crucial Ballistic Tracer 2x1gb PC4000
The VGA is an x1900xtx (it was perfect with the previous cpu 4000+, never a problem)
then i got an X-Fi Fatality gamer (or somrthing like that)
"Only" ISDN pci modem (no adsl here at the moment )
I tryed only with AMD driver 1.3.2
then with the optimizer
then with the italian patch for a win XP problem
NOTHING to do!
I stressed the cpu to test it with orthon (prime something...) for 5 hours, 8 minuters, all was okey
I did several super_pi mod x2 all OK
Aquamark ... 97.000 points, ok
3dmark06, 6.700 points, no problem
Absoluting testing without Overclokking...
REally I can't understand
everything was "normal" with the 4000+ ... and now with an FX60 i can't play online for more than 8/10 minutes!!??!! Then pc restart!!
It.s 2 weeks I am trying to find a solution.. nothing to do....
This is the only game I have time to play... and now i can't ... unbeliveable!
(sorry for my "not too good" english)
