my suggestion would be to NOT use easy boost..i've never been able to get it to work right and have used all the updates..use something like MSI after burner..the latest version..it is VERY stable..totally adjustable for your own settings and I've never had a problem with it.it also has many different settings so you can change from one to another for diff apps.I have a gigabyte x58a udr3 v1.0, i7 975x w/12g ram and on dual boot sys w/xp pro 64bit and win7 pro 64bit..4 wd 500g hd's,3 blue ray dvd's w/gigabyte gtx295 video card.Mobo is running bios v6..am oc'd to 3.73 and video is oc'd to twice normal speed. have been running this way for over 2 yrs and not once does it crash,stall,or even hic-cough..moocho stable. i run 3dsmax 2013,maya2013,inventor 2013,poser 8 and while all are running i can still get my email,render in maya.copy,delete and move stuff..TOTALLY stable sys.
so.throw away "easy boost" and get something better..RIVA,MSI or one of your choice..there are lots out there for FREE too..so experiment..find one that works well on your sys and go with it!!
