You might bump up the voltage some more (yes, to above 1.325 this time) to get it stable.

Are you overclocking at all?

~Lordbob

no bob I did not Overclock exept that card is already overclocked from default, it also means I can't overclock it more...I have no idea if I can downclock it but I think like you said the CPU might not have enought power... it was at 1.25v on auto I raised it to 1.30 for now and will try gaming and see if it crashes

Once again thanks everyone for your patience and time I really appreciate
I am talking about the CPU. If the CPU is OCed, put it to normal. If not, then bump up the voltage.

are we talking about the Intel i950 CPU or the video card CPU here?
I'm assuming you are talking about the main CPU ...it was on Auto which I think was 1.25v on default..
yesterday we played the game was in for about 2 hours then bsod...that thing is confusing now since it work on window mode but not on fullscreen...now i'm thinking the driver could just be bad for the game and system and will try to downgrade...

The BSoD code is being thrown for CPU voltage, lets ignore the GPU for now and confirm or deny that the CPU is causing this.

Can you confirm if this is not normal?
the red labeling says that it's dangerous to set it higher than 1.65 on Dram Bus voltage...so I set it to normal again but it was like this when I installed it...even after Cmos

That RAM should run at 1.65V, so set it to that.

Sigh it's a matter of 10 seconds now I get a BSOD on small FFT on prime95... is there any setting I can use on Prime95 to at least not get the bsod when I test it?
should I just RMA my CPU or the whole set?

also I the first 30 second of Prime the cpu temp goes up to 72C I read normal maximum was 80
so it's not overheating right?
on Idle it's around 39C 41C
