No i have not. I cannot warrant a purchase of a new OS just to test stuff out.

I have tried other vid cards as well, still same result. Obviously, at stock CPU/FSB speeds, the game runs fine. What I am trying to figure out is what causes L4D2 to crash. Does 15hrs prime95 stable mean anything these days? Check out the pic.
I will continue to test this out with different voltages because 500Mhz FSB is awesome. Everything is snappy. Loading from cached memory is amazing. Also, 4Ghz brought my min fps up in several games.
