Hi Ace07

as i remember you had re-boot problems before. do they still occur ?

does this problem happen also when using other benchmarking / testing software ?

which version of Radeon vga driver do you have ? is it 8.561 ? if not then try to use it. it's included in Catalyst 8.12 suite drivers available at:

ZX-S & C64 are still my favourites ;-)

Hi

1. which software of Futuremark do you use for your testing ?
2. does this problem happen when using other benchmarking software or games ? if yes then which ones ?
3. what is required voltage of your OCZ memory ? is the same voltage set in your motherboard ?
4. just for checking try to use only 1 stick of memory
ZX-S & C64 are still my favourites ;-)

I suggest uninstalling the VGA drivers, then use Driver Cleaner Pro (or similar) to make sure all of the driver has been removed. Then reinstall the newest ones for the system. Have you tried reinstalling Futuremark? I had issues with 3dmark vantage, but I am not so sure if that is because of my card being so new and mature drivers for it are yet to be released.
