Yeah I have the latest mobo beta bios for this asus p4s8x board 1005.009. I scarded to disable agp 8x if fear that I will not lock up again, hell if that happens then one of my biggest reasons for buying this board was to have agp 8x.

N.H.B. I have already built a couple of rigs just like yours. Usually I have only seen them sieze up like that if the "chipset clock mode" setting in the BIOS is set to "performance". I don't know if thats your case but it overclocks the PCI/AGP bus and causes lots of problems. I generally use the SIS 1.13 AGP drivers. Have you tried taking out one or two sticks of memory temp. to see if it goes away? Sometimes the board can be unstable with 3 memory sticks at 333MHz+ speeds.

Edit- Have you also tried upping the DDR memory voltage and the AGP voltage?

Yeah I have the chipset clock mode set to sync but when I downloaded the sis chipset agp drivers to 114 it gave me a new setting in bios called "performance setting" right below sdram one page control which is found in chip configuration. I have this option which didnt come with the mobo bios originally set to "enable". I will disable and see if that helps. What is weird is that this option appeared in bios by downloading the sis agp chipset drivers 114 and enabling it increases my ram speed to a little over pc2700 speeds to about 2850 ram int & float buffered. Disabling it causes my ram speed to be around 2780 int and float buffered. Whats weird is this is my ram speeds changing from an option that got downloaded from a agp driver option and I wouldnt think that ram settings would be changed or have any thing to do with it but they do. Now does this have any relation to chipset clock mode I dont know. Well Im gonna try some games and see what happens. Also 3dmark 2003 runs all the way through w/o problems so why do my games freeze???

Have you attempted to change the agp to 4x to see if maybe that is the problem?
It looks to me like it is a config problem, although I do NOT have the experience with that mobo.

I know you bought it for 8x, but it doesn't hurt to check if that is the problem....... plus 8X is far overrated at this time.
Is that a fresh install with no N drivers in it?
Sorry if you mentioned that it is, I checked a couple posts back and didn't see it mentioned.

N.H.B. What voltages are you showing on your 3.3v line etc. Have you tried with a motherboard monitoring program running to see if you were getting drops in voltage under load?

In re-reading your posts I noticed that your just getting popped back to desktop. Grasping for straws, 3DMark is running fine but not games it could be a sound card problem. 3DMark does not use sound but games do. Have you tried running the games with the sound card removed or disabled? Is all the onboard sound, unused features, etc. disabled in the BIOS?
Edit- OOOPPPPSS! Sorry you are using 3DM03 and it does use sound.
