dont know where to post this in one forum so im posting in asus, fx and overcloking sections ...sigh..between the issues im having with my 6870 performance since switching from the 965 BE to the 6300 and these stress testing weird issues ive never seen before...even when I first got this processor, that I'm seeing now, im about to pull some hair. HOPefully I get some replies because I have no clue what coujld be doing the following (thoghtit was overheat protection in one of my programs until i uninstalled coretemp, disabled all auto shut down/hibernate options in power settings in windows and in catalyst, etc..) Basically, what happens is, I begin a stress test (seems to either ONLY happen when NB is pushed to 2400 and beyond...or when my htlink is at 2400 (which is the default) and my NB is 2400 or above also) i begin testing, come back, and my display has crapped out and monitor gone into power save mode with the PC still running...same way it looks when its hibernating without suspending to RAM...but the keyboard or mouse doesnothing to bring it back, you have to power it off and on. (Even the reset button doesn't work when this happen) what's the problem here? my temp sensors on my NB getting too hot ??? because i've ran these settings before and made it through I cant. could i have screwed up something on my mobo? temp sensor or mosfet or whatever else tehre could be? +love if anyone has suggestions.

try this:

cpunb at stock=2000
ht link stock=2400 in that board

put memory frequency AUTO=1600
put this timings=11 11 11 28 39 1T

see if it crashes
