EVGA GeForce 9800 GX2 KO

Microsoft Windows Vista 64-Bit Ultimate

Thermaltake W0106RU 700W power supply

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600

Patriot Extreme Performance 4GB (2 x 2GB)

MSI P7N Diamond LGA 775

I get random crashes with this Bsod error message (occasionally) "a clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor within the allocated time interval"

Things that provoke a crash are movement of large files, virus scans, vista updates, and most games
this is getting to be a headache... iv tried so many things and looked so many places for answers xD
the computer seems to run smoother in safe mode. the only thing i can really do is run a long virus scan but it only seems to have crashed once.

There was a guy with a very similar problem, i would even say the same one if we had the same motherboard. (http://www.velocityr...sor-within.html)

Things i have tried:
  • I Reformatted my hard drive and reinstalled vista
  • Tried other hard drives
  • Cleared the cmos before reinstalling
  • Tried a different video card
  • Got my cpu replaced with a brand new one
  • Sent my mother board to be replaced (they sent back the same one saying that there was nothing wrong but, i almost don't be leave them xD)
  • Done extensive memory tests
  • Adjusted the bios settings for my ram
  • Used a single stick of ram rather then both
  • updated all drivers
Things i'm going to try soon:
replacing the PSU

things i can't try:
a different motherboard
a 32 bit os and cpu

I need any help i could get xD msi tech support blows
