Then I went back to 3.2Ghz stable and I had a Vista Boot Error (STOP 0x0000218 - Registry File Failure, System could not Load Hive)
I "repaired" Vista (I will reinstall Vista; I plan on dual-booting x64 and x32 when I get a new hard drive)
I went through some more posts and couldn't find anything obviously simple... so I went into the BIOS and loaded my default 3.4GHz profile with everything set to auto.
PC Health shows:
VCore @ 1.428v
DDR18V @ 1.888v
Before I drop back into this venture, am I at the point where I should be looking at MCH and ICH or RAM..
I just want to make sure I have a course of action before I start.
*Should I be getting BSOD errors like this:
- STOP 0x...124
- STOP 0x...A
- System Registry File Failure
Antec 650W Power Supply
- crossfire certifired

- I having been experiencing random issues from hardware failure to drive signing issues
- I have disabled UAC, driver signing, and security
I have read most of these guides, but thanks..
I guess I just wanted to make sure that consistantly losing core 3 is normal (!?!) and that these errors (specifically that Page File Error) are common and should be expected.... I've run my RAM through MEMTest, but only for about 8hrs....
