Hmm. My 1st board did EXACTLY that before crashing; it took me over 1 hour to install W7, then to become irresponsive after the 1st reboot.

I don't suppose anyone here uses SageTV? If so do you use it on your SR-2, or can you try it on your SR-2? Any of the SageTV applications crash on launch for me. I even reformatted Windows to see if that was the issue.

EDIT: I figured out that some DirectX applications just won't run with more than 16 threads. If I disable Hyperthreading. It will work great.

It looks like I am going to have to purchase ANOTHER machine as I can not live w/o my SageTV. Plus there are supposedly quite a few games that will not run either.

Just wanted to add regarding PPD. In the last 7 days, I heven't used the rigs much and was left pretty much folding 24/7. I got 6 WU from project 6900 and 1 from project 2684. My 24 hours average is 130 448.

Hmmm. Mind posting up some CPU-Z's to show memory clock & uncore? I am getting ~ 129.5k w/ a P6900 at the moment and I haven't touched the system besides VNC'ing in and checking HMF.net once in a while. And this is @ 3.7GHz.

If anyone ever has any issues w/ DirectX applications crashing on them give this fix a shot. It has fixed my issues w/ running SageTV and in the process crushed my dreams of buying a Sandy Bridge system.

A DirectX 9.0 application crashes on a computer that has more than 16 logical processors configured

Thumbs up

Nice find lowfat. Haven't had problems with software compatibility (for the moment), but I'm sure I'll encounter this problem sooner or later.
