    Farcry 2: Stuck at the beginning(probably embarassing)

    It's been ~2 weeks since I got my 3000+ 939

    and I've finally settled on 278 x 9 for 2.5 ghz, 1.575 volts stock cooling. It's odd though, at 280 x 9 it will fail prime within 3 mins, while at 278 x 9 it will go over 24 hours. I'm running my ch5 based mushkin ram at 227 2-3-2-10 @ 2.8 volts, this is much better than my athlon xp/nf7-s...
