Default Re: How can Orthos run for an hour if Prim95 fails after a minute?

The quad cores don't mix well with the 680i nVidia boards. The 680i works very well with the new 45nm dual cores though. I have an e8400 @ 4050MHz on my AR revision eVGA 680i with the p32 BIOS. I'm holding off on quad core until Nehalem with it being a true native quad core CPU. That and there are only a handful of games that actually use more than 2 cores, so to have a dual core a 4GHz+ gives me far better gaming performance than a quad core at around 3GHz.
