My cooling is more than adequate. Apogee GTZ, GTS 240, MCP655. cpu-loop only.

I think I found the problem. the vram in evga's BIOS is set at 1.625V. that's the problem. just checked the problem in e-leet: under load, the ram drop at around 1.61V. Seems to be the problem with the motherboard in general: there is a lot of vdroop. just did a test: put my ram at 1.675V in BIOS, was around 1.66V with vdroop.

now it does not fail blend almost instantly.

will try with my overclocked settings.
