thanks Jonathan_Kingok, im done testing. another pass of Orthos blend for 2 hrs, e6600 @3.0ghz@ 1.2750vcore in bios + foobar2000 playing music > 45c temp and no errors.
did a little work trying to recreate the issue, foobar + bridge + cs5 no "luck" everything works fine. argh kn kernel dump! now i will never know... did just 2 changes 1) upped vcore 2 notches and 2) disabled C1E in bios ( i had it enabled and used i7turbo to disable enable c1E from the os in order to lower the clocks-the power plans didnt work with speedstep > old bios- now C1E is disabled by default and if i want it just use 17turbo to enable it. would love to update my bios, but i like to boot on my first try with my oc! ( old bios im suing says audio "vista" "non vista" the newer ones are different, HD oudio etc, maybe thats part of the problem? ok until your next BSOD.
( hope not) thanks.
