Default Re: Weird problem vaguely associated with OC'ing

It does seems somewhat random for me - i've got no OC at the mo' but it did it twice in a row yesterday, first time when restarting on nvidia driver update then on shutting down for the night. This is after I changed the slots the memory is in, so that's obviously not a factor.

It definately happens MUCH more often when my comp' is OC'ed though.

I'm going to update to W7 64 over Christmas so i'll post if that fixes it.
