Alright then - temps are out of the question like southwind said. What are the voltages on that psu, both when idle and folding?

cpu temp at idle 42
core voltage 1.73
voltages
3.37
5.20
12.07

once f@h starts
cpu temp rises from 43 to 48
core voltage goes to 1.72 at start and stays there
all other voltages are as follows:
3.37
5.23
12.01

gunna pull out the memory and try with one than the other.

Your voltages look good too. I think you might be right about the RAM.

At this point, it's essentially got to be the ram (just like southwind said).

i've run the 512 and the 256 separately. it's frozen with both, but froze more quickly and repeatedly with the 512. the 256 has only frozen once. the cpu is also running at a slightly cooler temp, 46 instead of 48. guess i'll let it fold through the night and see what happens

maybe both sticks then, or just the 512 is bad/incompatible... memtest time. Who made the ram - or at least who made the chips?

It does sound like the RAM may be the problem. BTW, I'm running 256MB each of Crucial RAM (made by Micron) and PNY RAM (also made by Micron) in my MSI K7T Turbo2 (with WinXP and an Athlon Thunderbird 1200), and F@H works fine on it.

Also, do you have the ATX12V connector plugged into your motherboard? I've heard that this motherboard will run without that connector plugged in, but it isn't as stable that way.

okay no laughing. i had some really nice crucial memory in this rig but i put it in a machine i built for my nephew. he's 15, does gaming etc and i really don't overstress a machine most of the time. this one can't remember the last time it was overclocked. so i put in some stuff i don't even remember where i got. the 512 is kingmax, the 256 is running right now so i can't get a good look at it but sisoft sandra says it's kingston (another big favorite of those on this forum) :lol:
i've already started looking around at memory upgrades everywhere from cruicial to newegg to ebay. okay so i'm frugal (cheap) and was starting to plan on upgrades not replacing component in this one. any suggestions on a good memory test before i bite the bullet and buy some decent memory? :oops:
also, i do have that 12v connecter plugged in. i've heard the same thing you've heard cd burner, but have never run without it. in the meantime it did finish a wu today with the 256 and started a new one. but the new one has been causing it to freeze up more frequently than the last one. maybe i'll stick the 512 back in and see how it does :roll:
