Running AMD 4000+ on Abit AV8; 1 gig corsair twinx 3200 DDR; BFG 6600 GTOC in a Tsunami Dream case with Thermaltake 2 x 120mm fans (one rear exhaust; one front intake) and 1 x 90mm side mount fan blowing directly onto heatsink.
I upgraded to this system last week and performed a repair install of XP. I am having a few stability problems. Have done the usual update/roll back of drivers etc.
System temp is 25 degrees celsius; power supply 33 degrees celsius but the cpu temp at idle is 40 and under load is getting up to 57. Ambient temperature around 20 degrees celsius.
I am getting relatively frequent BSOD's and / or freezes playing games or browsing the internet.
I was getting IRQ_NOT_EQUAL_TO_OR LESS_ BSOD's but am now getting one that reads: "win32k.sys - address BF95B12E base at BF800000 Datestamp 3d6de5e5."
Is it possible this is related to the cpu temp - perhaps the heatsink (stock AMD) is not operating efficiently? Or is it more likely related to software (ie, the repair install of XP?)
Any help would be appreciated.
