Default Re: 9800GTX+ crashing, hardware or software?

Just a thought, I wonder if we have anything else in common which could be a factor, like monitor resolution. I've got a 20" 1680x1050 Dell LCD monitor.

I have a completely different monitor, resolution and all. Looks like everyone in this thread is having the same problems. http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=123912

Looks like its not even just related to 9800 gtx's either :/

Have you tried underclocking? I started underclocking mine about 2-3 weeks ago and it's been stable since then.

I used:

nvidia-settings -a GPUOverclockingState=1 -a GPU2DClockFreqs=225,828 \
-a GPU3DClockFreqs=500,1000

The defaults for my card are 2D: 300,1000 and 3D: 745/1100.

I think it also needs:

Option "Coolbits" "1"

in the device section in xorg.conf.
