We, my friend and I, are trying to figure out why I hit a wall at 1425 @9X 3.2+Ghz. Anything over that will cause the machine to become unstable at some point. Not at first till I go to 1429+. Than it wont boot, if it does boot Windows wont load and if it does load it will hang soon afterwards. Im going to flash the BIOS on Tuesday with ver. 29PG and see what happens. I could be out of date with it.
