    Hey!

    Just a quick question:

    I have split second slow-downs [especially noticeable while listening to music] and 2 crashes so far. My event log tells me that an error occured in CPU 0.

    Might running my trusty C2D E6600 @ 3.6 GHz 24/7 finally have started to kill it? Temperature is fine with 42 @ idle and max 58 under full load.

    Any idea, in case it really dies, what CPU would make sense?
    I'm very open to suggestions, both in just replacing the CPU with a newer C2D or C2Q model or going i5/i7.

    At the moment I have an ASUS P5B-E with 4 GB OCZ DDR2-800, a 8800GTS/640 and the E6600.

    Any opinion is appreciated.

    Cheers,

    perp

    aye.. check out the hd and memory, you could try running 3.3- on a single gpu there's really not much gained after that going from 3.3 to 3.6- have the same chip here and you shouldn't need more than 1.4v.. if you run 1:1 at that speed you might be able to get away with 1T and lower latency with mem too

    I used to run 3.6, but if you run the numbers benchmarking fps.. no real change really from 3.2 up- 3.3 seems to be the sweet spot for getting the memory to accept 1T too
