Ok so I am having some problems here I'll start by explaining whats going on. I have a 3000+ s754, I had it overclocked to 2.4GHz stable so I thought, until I notice my CPU fan was hitting 6000RPM's and thats the stock HSF. I decided thats a bit higher for that little CPU Fan, I restarted the system to turn it down to a lower clock speed. Right before the system was getting ready to boot up so I could get to bios, I got that thing we are all afraid of hearing! "CPU failed due to CPU overclock" I turned the power off and restarted it. I got it to boot up into bios changed the clock speed to 2GHz, I went on about my business. Ever since that happend my games have been skipping, sometimes just freezing forcing me to have to restart my computer. I also looked at my video card temp, and I noticed 71c idle temps (This is at normal speeds btw). I just don't know whats going. If I were to upgrade this system to the 3000+s939 would I be able to push my CPU alot further in overclocking? What do you recommend in cooling?

That's way too high for GPU idle. It should be below 40C, not even at 70C on load. What is your cooling like, ie how many fans, their size, and what your airflow in the case is like. Seems a bit high, what's your case temp?

3 fans not including the PSU and CPU fan. I downgraded to the released drivers as I was running beta drivers from nvidia now, my temps went from 70 to 60 something idle. I am still lagging up pretty hard in even the most simple games.

Check the AGP voltage in the BIOS and make sure it didn't get cranked up when you OC'd the system. Does your mobo have an AGP/PCI lock? and if so, was it on?

You could try turning fastwrites off in the BIOS.

Turned them off, its not lagging. I was playing rose online and getting some stops here and their. Yes it has AGP/PCI Locks, I am upgrading pretty soon on this pc as I have heard so much about the 90nm and want to see what I can get out of one. I still don't know why it just suddenly begin to lag and freeze like that. What does fast writes do anyway? Why would my temps increase with the beta 71 drivers?

Actually, that's a normal temp for that card. The damage threshold is 135C, so the temp is fine.

QUOTE 3 fans not including the PSU and CPU fan. I downgraded to the released drivers as I was running beta drivers from nvidia now, my temps went from 70 to 60 something idle.

There was a number of nVidia drivers that had a bug with the temps they where reporting. There was a workaround of OCing the the core and memory clock frequencies by a couple points that seemed to resolve it. Seems they fixed the bug in later releases.

If I recall it was the 71.8X series in particular. But low-mid 60's is average temp for a 6800GT. Mine idle at 62C.

yeah so you would suspect the 71 beta is reporting wrong temps I thought this maybe true. I am not sure though because when I first installed them was getting 67 to 65. I also noticed that now ocing has no effect on my benchmarks, It must of all been CPU related ever since I put my CPU back down to stock my score in aqua mark went from 60 something fps to 54 some odd fps. The CPU seems to minimize a 100 times fast to desktop then before, but in some games I am getting so awful CPU lag or something. My SLI Board I am running similar to what you have runs games like nothing else, I have a question though, do you find some games crashing to desktop with directx and opengl errors with SLI?
