2 hours of checking done, 3 passes... no errors... but i didnt have any lockouts and this was system intensive right? i suspect this is vista 64 bit acting against me....


other things iv noticed is during boot my computer will turn on, and rev a few time (power down for a second then back on), this is probably to juice the capacitors but this means im under power does it not?

my next step is to try pen drive Linux with stress tests to see if Microsoft is screwing me over.

i have found other instances of this on vista 64 bit:

Vista x64 Lock up, after clean install - Vista Help

should i try W7 and see if i get the same lockups?

using Phoronix Test Suite Live to see if this is Microsoft doing the devils dance on my core...
